24:32 – The Rubenerd Show returns to Kuala Lumpur after thirteen years! Playing a retrospective clip from episode 103 in June 2006, then back to October 2019 with Clara wandering around the Petronas Twin Towers and Jalan Ampang. I never thought I’d be doing this again!

54:03 – Returning to the birthplace and spiritual home of the Rubenerd Show in Singapore, and where I first heard The Overnightscape. Wandering around Marina Square with Clara making random observations about life here compared to the 1990s and 2000s, with sounds of the Singapore F1 Grand Prix in the background. Then jumping on the MRT back to Novena, and walking in the late evening. It’s a remote-working holiday, but I’ll take it!

42:30 – Join Ruben as he discusses himself in the third person, and his business trip adventures to two Australian cities on the exact opposite sides of the country for added convenience; the former of which he hadn’t been to since he lived there in the 1990s! Then some nostalgia for coffee chains, specifically the giant Dômes in Singapore. Recorded early September 2019.

55:03 – Join Clara and I on our first day back in Japan! Wandering around Otemachi in Tokyo looking for an ATM for a sinister card that refused to work, travelling from Narita, egg sandwiches from convenience stores, and too much more to write notes on when we should be sleeping!

31:36 – An homage to The Overnightscape episode Mother’s New Mineral Dream. Talking about white walls everywhere in new buildings, 1970s era shopping malls, struggles with junk, Staten Island, and personally generated media. Because you can’t take it with you. Cover art of the Metropolitan Museum of Art taken from Clara’s and my trip to NYC in 2016.

31:11 – Recognising two distinct trends on the programme of late, obsessive spreadsheeting, resenting new computer hardware, more thoughts around working from coffee shops instead of home/work, the computer dock and concept pioneered by the late OQO, and some speaking in between the coughs!
