Hi, I’m Liane!

About Me 1
At the Broad Museum exhibit

Most of my personal and professional interests seem to be in websites (design, development, maintenance). I’m a WordPress enthusiast and volunteered at 2018 WordCamp LA and attended OC WordCamp that year. When I’m not at work, I’m probably playing Pokemon GO, Marvel Puzzel Quest, and various passive Facebook games. I’m also an avid home chef (though admittedly kind of lazy in finding new recipes).

I love online shopping and reviewing products that are effective and useful. This blog is mostly about music (when I hear or see something I really like), but also art, fashion, manga/anime, travel, and whatever else I’m interested in at the moment. I also throw in the occasional movie review when I see one worth mentioning. And occasionally, I might talk about work and technology, in general.

For current and past work related projects, please visit my portfolio. I’ve also written a number of live music reviews for various websites (The Scenestar, In Music We Trust). In addition to blogging in a few different places, I am a former AXS contributor and currently write some reviews for Backseat Mafia. I previously wrote about fashion and style for Examiner.com.

If you were wondering, my current WordPress theme is Point by MyThemeShop (a theme I liked so much, I’ve used it for years and keep going back to it), the background image is from a Tokidoki Mimobot USB drive. Feel free to email me at liane.chan@gmail.com or fill out my online Contact form. Also, if you were wondering where my ubiquitous screen name porcupiny is from, it’s loosely based on the Echo & the Bunnymen album Porcupine.
