First off, let me say that it feels so weird to be typing on my own blog again. Where am I?! But seriously, I decided to start updating Arcadey again. I miss having a platform to educate the internet on what good music is because from what I’ve been seeing online lately nobody has a damn clue.

For anybody wondering what I’ve been up to, I’ve been working hard for the money honey. Despite my busy schedule, I’m going to make a few times a week to update washed-up old Arcadey. Outside of the blog, there’s a few other places you can catch me:

  • I’m on a radio show every Friday with ZE:A’s Kevin Kim (remember him from Nasty Nasty with Nine Muses?) on SBS PopAsia. It’s very G-rated and I don’t get to choose the topics, so it’s not quite the same Jacques you know from online… but it’s fun!


  • I do the occasional K-pop posts for Idolator, and I also have a weekly feature there called East Beat where I round up the best Asian pop songs of the week. It’s mostly K-pop, but I try to mix in some J-pop and C-pop when find something good.


  • I’m also all over social media, duh. Please show your support by liking my Facebook page and following me on Twitter. I’m also trying to update my Instagram more, so please follow that too!

Thanks for everybody who has been tweeting and messaging me for ages asking me to start blogging again. I appreciate it!
