The Creativity in Hongkong
BY 張鐵志TIEH CHIH CHANG
@ VOL 27
ON DEC 19, 2015
Observer Mr. Chang talked about the great challenge of becoming the editor of 'Extra' magazine since it was already very popular. He began to think about what kind of magazine Hong Kong needs: he observed the demoralized atmosphere caused by the Hong Kong consumer environment, lacking freedom in publishing and politics. He realized Hong Kong badly needed a new voice, a new power. 'Extra' magazine, launched in 2013, made its name because of the topics of the student movement, gay and lesbian issues, and others. Mr. Chang has integrated the issues he is concerned with relating to culture, the creativity of the new generation, independent music and culture into the magazine content. In addition, he also introduced Hong Kong's well known urban space as the 'Hidden Agenda and Fullcup' industrial area, West Kowloon Cultural District next to Victoria Harbour, and the streets and markets of Central. Finally, he hopes to return to Taipei and participate in more activities to make Taipei even more wonderful.
觀察家張鐵志分享當初成為《號外》雜誌總編輯時，該雜誌已經是非常受歡迎的雜誌，因此是個極大挑戰，他開始思考香港需要什麼樣的雜誌，並觀察到香港的消費、政治上的出版與言論不自由等低瀰氣氛，所以香港極需要新的聲音，新力量產生，於2013年推出的《號外》以學運、同志等議題打響名號，把他關心的文化議題、新生代創造力、獨立音樂與獨立文化加入雜誌內容，並介紹目前香港知名的城市空間「Hidden Agenda and Fullcup」工業區、維多利亞港旁的西九龍文化特區、中環的街市等。最後希望回到台北參與更多活動，讓台北更精彩。

How Hongkong movies shaped my life
BY TRAN DUY NGUYEN
@ VOL 10
ON DEC 11, 2016
What makes you who you are today? Is it your family, your friends, what you have done or the places you have been to?
For Trần Duy Nguyễn, the answer lies in the 90s Hong Kong movies. To sit around the TV, watching Hong Kong films being played by a VHS player is the kind of memories many 8x and 9x Vietnamese share. It is common, but also very personal since such movies are the main and almost only form of entertainment there used to be.
