I remember when we reached 100 editions and someone

saying, you have to be proud of getting to 100 of anything.

Well, we were proud, but time moves on and here we are in

2019 and it’s 500 editions. Well, where did those decades go?

And where did those people go? Things were a lot simpler back

in 2000 when we started The Beat magazine. We all spoke to

each other more, not via apps, but in person. We took photos

of people dancing around at clubs and bars and waited a few

days to get the photos developed and back again. Everything

seemed to take longer. People were really excited to see

themselves in print back in those days. In some ways we

were the paparazzi for the common people. This was before

Facebook and Instagram had been conceived and we were

one of the first to do it. I traveled around a lot back then and

didn’t see that much photo action going on anywhere until

years later. Funnily, we just stumbled upon it to fill up some

pages, a lot like Facebook did a few years later according

to the film, Social Network. Anyway, time does move on and

we decided just last week to move our photo LIVE FEED from

Instagram to our own website, thebeatbali.com. There are a

few reasons for this, and it has been planned for some time,

but the push came when we realized the social media giant

was strangling our engagement by blocking our hashtags on

our posts. So here we are at 500 editions of this magazine and

now if you want to see the beat LIVE photos you know where

to go.

We are now in the thick of the Bali high season too. With the

changes that have occurred over the past couple of years,

namely the entire demo- and geographic shifts that have

happened between Kuta, Seminyak, Uluwatu and Canggu areas

and the dilution of tourism numbers spreading between those

places, this could go down as the lamest high season ever. Or,

as is the usual Bali eleventh hour style, just go ballistic and be

one of the most the intriguing and crazy yet.

Check inside for all the details. Happy Hari Merdeka 2019!
