Sooo for those of you who don’t know, I just got home from AWA (Anime Weekend Atlanta) and it was freaking AMAZING!!!! I don’t think I’ll be able to do the weekend justice no matter how hard I try to explain it, it was literally that awesome. (Hehe, for three years running!!)
Anyway, I shall start once we got to the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel/Cobb Galleria Convention Center (I think that’s right…), since the car ride was fun but not interesting enough to write about. (Oh, and unless noted otherwise, the pictures are mine!)
SOOOOO!!! We get to the Waverly and park somewhere a little confusing, but I can no longer remember all the places I parked, because we were all over the place!! All I remember was I did a really bad parking job because A) it was my dad’s car not mine and B) I parked next to a giant cement pole……. I almost couldn’t get out of my door ㅠ.ㅠ
and Himchan ..
This was my favorite scene in the whole episode!! Himchan is…… like the Joker’s baby on crack ^^
Jongup: If you were born again, what would you want to be?
More reasons to love Himchan!!! :D
Yongguk. What are you on?
And can I have some???
I just came to the horrible realization that today is only Wednesday…..
Okay, So I really want a D-Day countdown on my page now, because AWA IS ONLY 19 DAYS AWAY!!! I’M SOOOOOO EXCITED!!!!
It’s going to be my third year going, and I cannot freaking wait!! I’m going to be trying to work out a lot until then and be a little skinnier since I want to cosplay as Winry from FullMetal Alchemist.
(I also suddenly want to rewatch the entire series again…..) Sooo while the costume should be easy enough, since I cut my hair short, I now need to get a wig…… *cue sigh* I think I might’ve found one though, and with expedited shipping it should be here on time…. I just don’t know >< My hair is basically shoulder-length, which isn’t really long enough to pull of Winry’s style…. and I’ve pretty much always wanted to dress up like Winry……
Also, I’m going with three of my friends, and we’re going to be getting our own room (instead of three of us sharing a room with five other people). And our hotel isn’t crazy expensive between the four of us, and this is just gonna be so much fun!!! I really wanna make videos on the trip and stuff!! And the ball is going to be the best thing EVARRRRR!!!!! (again :P)
G-Dragon’s “Coup d’eTat" which came out on Sept. 1st and currently has almost 3M views on YouTube.
Okay, I’m gonna put this upfront first: this is NOT my favorite song GD has done. It’s not my least favorite, but it isn’t very high in my favorites. Now, I’m speaking mainly from the perspective of visually and stylistically.
Visually, this is weird…. maybe I just can’t see the symbolism or whatever, but I feel like this is a very artsy, confusing, conceived-while-drunk sort of video (Don’t take that the wrong way!). One thing about symbolism is that it really shouldn’t be THIS difficult for normal people to grasp.
I understand the part with him in the old man skin thing, but I don’t get the chicks pole dancing on trees or the kid standing in front of the coffin thing, or the tree and the chick with the awesome umbrella, or the room with boiling pots (yeah it could kinda go with a line in the song, but not the part that it’s put with), or the black floor with paint and crows and that beak I am trying to understand the room he’s singing in with that giant pendulumand the black faceand the half broken red head and ribs. And frankly, I absolutely hate the hair. I’m sorry GD, but the hair is just a no…….
Also, I’d like to point out that on the part with the black face, I don’t follow the lip syncing. He isn’t saying what you hear in the foreground. Now, I can kinda tell that he’s saying something really faintly in the background that looks like it matches that part, but I can’t tell what he’s saying, and I can’t find the lyrics to tell me what it is.
Quite honestly, I really dislike this video overall. And from what I can tell, that seems to be the general consensus. It feels like the only people who really love it are either the people who love everything their favorite artists put out, or the people who understand it. Everyone else is just kinda
Now, I don’t hate the song nearly as much as some other people seem to. I don’t necessarily understand the lyrics very well (and not because I don’t know what they say, I just don’t GET it…). The chorus is catchy and fun to sing along to, but the meaning is…. what?
I’m really getting into the music part though—the beat is gorgeous, and if I could find an instrumental version I think I would be one of the happiest people around.
All in all, I hope the other two videos he’s going to produce are nothing like this one whatsoever.
Next up is another GD song, which came out on Sept. 4th and is the second of his supposed “four title tracks”: ”삐딱하게 (Crooked)”, which currently has just over 2.3M views on YouTube.
Okay, this song is amazing. It makes up for “Coup d’eTat” completely. It’s got that typical GD feel to it that I love. I don’t know much about this song yet, but it just kinda makes me wanna get up and dance around. I’m sure I’ll eventually get around to reading the lyrics and understanding more, but for now just listening is enough.
Watching the video is interesting in and of itself, especially with how I see a whole bunch of outfits/scenarios that remind me of past stuff he’s done. You’ve got the whole club scene, which is Crayon to the core—even the outfit is really similar!Another Crayon reference is the underwear/couch stuff.
And then you’ve got that blue suit which reminds me of GD&TOP’s “집에 가지마 (Don’t Go Home)” (although it was T.O.P who wore the blue suit. It’s even the same tie!!!)(OHEMGEE DUDES!!! I MADE THIS ONE!! YAY MEEE!!)
And I swear this is the outfit from Big Bang’s “Haru Haru” (If it isn’t then I don’t even know where it’s from, but it’s so freaking familiar!!!)(hehe I like making these >.<)
And lastly we’ve got the “Heartbreaker” scene:
So I could keep going, but I’m learning my GD-wardrobe/music-video knowledge is slim, so I can’t find all of the parodies/similar scenes. Personally, I just really like this video. I’ve probably listened to it a dozen times and I don’t really know how else to explain it other than I love it. The references to a lot of his previous works (the only one I REALLY don’t get is the giant fur coat…. anyone understand this reference?
Okay, anyway!! I’m going to stop now :P Basically, my opinion of this song:
Up next is KARA’s “숙녀가 못 돼 (Damaged Lady)" which came out on Sept. 1st, and currently has about 1.4M views on YouTube.
Okay, so remember how I said I don’t know girl groups before? ‘Kay now, keep that in mind as I don’t know any of the members (I know some names, but I don’t know which face goes with which name, I’m sorry!).
Overall, I kinda liked this song. I like the beat and the attitude, and I can sorta relate to the lyrics. All of them are gorgeous, and there’s parts of this that show it off, parts that hide it, parts that mess with it, and I like that the dance isn’t too extremely sexy—not to say it’s not sexy, I’m just saying it’s not ALL sexy. I wish I could permanently erase that ass-rub move from my brain, but maybe that’s just ‘cause I’m a girl >.<
I love the way they change outfits in the middle, and frankly, those black and white outfits are far more sexy than most of the other things to come out of Kpop recently. Maybe I just have a thing for that look, but it’s really pretty glorious.
Now, I do have one or two complains in the video, specifically focused on the hair…..
I suppose there are two. the first one
(This is like a bad attempt on the already god-awful Queen Elizabeth style……)
It’s like, the world’s worst bowl-cut. Seriously though, what is with kpop and putting otherwise pretty girls into these horrid wigs that look absolutely stupid. I mean, I get that she’s supposed to be
butcha guy, but still….. It would be a lot better as maybe a spikey pixie-cut…. that would be attractive, could be masculine-ish, and frankly, not even a dude (with any self respect) would get a bowl cut….. so it just kinda looks ……. bad….
Also, the guys in this video are seriously assholes!
I get that they’re supposed to be jerks and that that’s the point, but what guy would flirt with a waitress in front of his girlfriend? And what kind of girl would go up to a guy on a date and greet him like she’s his male best friend. And then, the guys completely ignore the girl they’re with……. asshole. I get why they might do that if it’s a blind/first date and they aren’t really interested, but the one girl freaking rips a ring off her finger. That is CLEARLY not a first-date reaction.
I do like their revenge scenes though! Shoving a burger in his face
dumping wine on his head
and spraying him with a fire-extinguisher gun
That’s all pretty awesome.
N.O.M’s “누난 예뻐 (Noona Is Pretty)" which came out on Sept. 3rd and currently has almost 16K views.
So this has to be one of the cutest, most overdramatic videos I’ve seen in a while—and for some reason, the cute concept doesn’t make me want to throw up! Not that this isn’t overly cute, totally cheesy, and stuffed with hilariously over-the-top acting, but they’re still cute.Seriously, these guys are adorable.
I think I have a crush on the redhead….
I guess it’s just the concept that I find really adorable. Personally, I wish they hadn’t gotten Hwang Minwoo (Baby PSY) to be their main child actor in this. I don’t know, he’s just… I don’t think his acting quite fit with this video. He’s still acting too much like Baby PSY, which is not what this video needs.
I have nothing against him personally, I’m just saying, I don’t think he was the best choice for this role. Either that, or he acted perfectly and it’s the script-writers that need to be sat down and explained to that they really screwed up the concept this time.
Hwang Minwoo is unique, and more power to him for being famous in elementary school. However, I dislike cocky adults, and I cannot stand cocky kids. So while I’m fine with his “Baby PSY” status and I understand that he is a kid, he seemed more like a spoiled brat in this video, and the acting didn’t help this rookie group.
Okay, don’t hate me! I cannot express enough that I don’t hate Hwang Minwoo, nor am I hating ON him. I’m simply saying his existence in this music video won’t have helped N.O.M any. Also, since this is N.O.M’s video, I’m going to get back to talking about them!
These guys aren’t really that special, but I like them anyway. They are probably gonna have to work on their teamwork (dance) and work on finding something that will set them apart from all the other groups that debuted/will debut this year. They sound pretty simply, and while they do have a good sound, they don’t have a very UNIQUE sound.
I totally LOVE the “hat dance” thing
I don’t know why, but I guess I just really like it when people use props in their dances, especially their clothes and each other. I think they need to work just a little bit more on their coordination in the dance, but again, I don’t know how much of the choreography is supposed to be divided in that way (there are just a lot of times where they are facing different directions and it’s hard/impossible to tell if that was on purpose or not.
Okay, so since there aren’t any gifs for this song, I made all of my own!! ^^ Yay me!!
Last and definitely not least is BTOB’s “스릴러 Thriller" which came out on Sept. 4th and has currently has a surprisingly low number of views (I’m thinking there’s an another YouTube view-count error to blame for this….) with almost 340K views on their official YouTube.
Okay so I love this song!! I’m used to BTOB being the dancing, not-cute-not-not-cute type of group. I mean, look at “WOW” and “그 입술을 뺏었어 (Irresistible Lips)” and even “비밀 (Insane)”. They veered into cutie-boy territory with “두 번째 고백 (2nd Confession)” (ESPECIALLY in the PJ version (; )
but I like this new style for them.
It’s got this Jpop feel to the video, and there’s a sound that I haven’t heard in quite a while. I’ve always liked the scratchy, Halloween-style music (as I’ve said numerous times) so maybe that’ why I’m so partial to this.
This is just one of those songs I’ve been singing on repeat in my head for a couple hours after I stop listening to it (haha, stop? whatchu talkin’ about?) It’s hard to say what’s so great about this—I’ve always liked BTOB, but I’ve never been a big/hardcore fan. I’ve seen some of their shows, and yeah I know the members. Which is why I still pout when Peniel doesn’t get a lot of lines, or when Ilhoon gets too many (since for some reason he’s the most well-known member it seems).
I like how we saw a lot of Sungjae in this one, but honestly, that single, ginormous earring needs to go….
And holy frick, Peniel got a line in Korean!? Finally! I don’t think he’s ever done anything other than English rap. And now he has at least a little bit of singing-rap in Korean.Hehe his line is “You can’t stop me” and “Burning heart” ^^ Yay!! Peniel FIGHTING!!
I’m sorry I’ve always thought Peniel needs to have more lines and actually get some Korean lines too!)
Anyway, back to the song! Um, I don’t really know what else to say….. I really like the concept, and Ilhoon has the coolest solo set ever, although, does anyone else thing Ilhoon looks like one of the guys from Block B? I think he looks kinda like UKwon…. And for some reason, Hyunsik kinda looks like one of the era’s for SHINee’s Jonghyun….
[I know people are gonna get pissed, but I’m just saying. We could probably find someone who shares a hairstyle/concept for every single kpop idol out there by now. Yeah they all have a different spin on things, but it’s getting hard to be completely original. I think it’s more about timing and having different eras for every group while having people promoting different styled eras at different times (does that make sense?)]
I should probably stop before I get mobbed by angry fangirls from a thousand different fangroups…
So yes, I highly recommend the video!! and gif-makers of the world, work your beautiful gif magic and make a whole lot of gifs for this song, because I still suck at making them and I want gifs of this MV >.<
Well, that’s it for this week!! I feel like I wanna do a special review for EXO’s Drama Version MVs, but apparently there’s one more coming? *still confused* So anyway, bye guys!!
(PS! I’d started writing this yesterday, and when I came back to finish it this morning, I had to update ALL of the MV viewcounts. GD’s songs went up by like half a million each, and Kara got another hundred thousand views, NOM got another 2K, and BTOB got almost another hundred thousand. All in about 12 hours. Yay for everyone!!)
I wish some people would stop publicly abusing the ability to be lazy -_-
Release Date: September 10th
- Will have two DVDs; one 95 minutes long and the other 55 minutes long
- 100 pages photobook
I want one O.O
So, I had a rather… interesting experience today…
I was following my friend home after school and then she was gonna go with me to get my oil changed so we could hang out while I didn’t have a car, because she’s awesome and loves me enough to sacrifice her afternoon at the drop of a hat for me.
Anyway! So I was driving to her house since she had to drop off her brother (who just started his freshman year at our high school), and we took different routes to her house.
There’s been construction over by our school, and a whole bunch of rain, and so some combination of all that left a very nasty pothole/ditch in/on the side of the road. Anywayyyyy, I ended up hitting said nasty pothole/ditch, and ended up popping my back right tire without knowing it. I’d hit potholes and run a little bit off the side of the road before, so I had no idea anything serious had happened.
So here I am, going along my merry way, heading for my friend’s house. I’d tried calling my dad (originally to ask him if I needed to set up an appointment to get my oil changed or if I could just walk in) but he didn’t answer. So I hung up, cranked up the music, and kept going.
I get out to the main road and I paused my music to try calling my dad again. That’s when I heard this flapping noise, like fabric in heavy wind. Well, I have a soft-top convertible, so I’m used to some extra wind-fabric noises, plus we’d just fixed the roof. So I wanted to call him and let him know I thought something was wrong with the roof. But, once again, he didn’t answer.
That’s when I smell something, and at first I can’t decide if it smells good or bad (you know what I mean?). I eventually came to the conclusion that it was burning rubber, and definitely did NOT smell good. But if I blocked outside air from coming in (I didn’t have it circulating through the car at the time—it was in then out!) I knew it would just keep smelling bad.
So I ignored it, thinking it was someone else’s car. However, another half mile passed and I was starting to think something was weird with my car. I was driving a lot slower (partly because my car didn’t seem to want to accelerate, which made me worried) and was actually wondering if I might have popped a tire. However, my car didn’t feel weird (it wasn’t leaning or limping like the last time I was in a car with a flat tire) so I tried to ignore it and kept trying to call Dad, completely convinced there was SOMETHING wrong with my car, as the burning rubber smell wouldn’t go away.
I turned down the next street, and got just passed the hospital (about another quarter mile, still half a mile or so from my friend’s house) and finally got ahold of my dad. I had just started telling him that I smelled burning rubber and something weird was going on with what I assumed to be the roof. He told me the rubber smell was probably a belt in the car or something, and wanted me to ask the mechanics about to take a look at it when I went to the shop for my oil change.
Just then, I feel something weird, see smoke, and watch as the tread on my tire goes flying across two lanes of traffic and into the grass on the other side of the street. I am, of course, narrating this whole thing to my dad over the phone, while I’m pulling into the median and flipping on my hazards.
My only thought: I cannot afford this.
My dad said he’d be on his way and I hung up and tried to figure out what to do until he got there. This was of course simultaneous with another car pulling into the median right in front of me and stopping.
I almost had a heart attack, thinking that the flying tread from my car had probably hit this car, and I was going to be absolutely flat broke after this shit ended.
I get out of my car, trying to figure out how to calm myself down and handle the situation appropriately. I wasn’t prepared for what was happening, however.
Out of this white SUV stepped a boy maybe my age, nice tan, cute face, curly hair, wearing comfortable looking clothes (unlike my boiling-hot school uniform of khaki [pants] and a black shirt), and… no shoes……
So anyway, he ended up saying he just wanted to make sure I was okay, and asked if I had anyone coming to help. I thanked him and told him my dad and my friend were coming, and he ended up leaving. Meanwhile, I’m still standing in the median, embarrassed to death because not only was my car sitting in the middle of the road, the back tire had literally flown off the rim and it was quite obvious…
So I go and sit in my car and try and look like I’m not just sitting there by rummaging through my stuff, trying not to die from the heat (I have a black car, no A/C running, it was 90 degrees outside and it was the heat of the day), putting on my hat since I couldn’t find sunglasses, and desperately searching for one of the two familiar cars I was waiting for.
Finally I saw my friend’s car and let me just say that she is probably the only thing that saved my day. Without her, it would have been absolutely miserable. She parked across the street and I walked over to meet her (I’m way overprotective of her and didn’t want her crossing the street by herself). We went back over to my car, inspected the humiliating damage once again, then opted to go wait in her car with the A/C running until my dad came. She held my hand almost the whole time, which was insanely comforting, and we kept switching between looking left for my dad and right to make sure no one was getting too close to my car (which they were. I was not a happy camper).
When my dad finally showed up, he parked over next to us and I got out of the car, completely humiliated and knowing he’d never let me live it down.
We went over to my car and he proceeded to laugh at my while asking how I could’ve driven so long with my tire like that—I proceeded to point out that the tire wasn’t like that for very long, and the rubber part was sitting in the grass “right there!”.
We popped the trunk to expose my rather humiliating stack of books from pre-middle school days which I’d been meaning to donate for the last 6 months. Since my spare tire was underneath all of my retarded horse-related books (Saddleclub, Pony Club, etc. Yes, that is how lame I am/was! Don’t judge me, you’ve all been there!) we began piling ALL of the books into the backseat of my car. We flipped the hood down so that we wouldn’t have to stand in the street while trying to get books out. If we’d have gotten hit, yes it would’ve been bad, but that just would’ve made the whole thing 300% more embarrassing…. I already wanted to die from the humiliation my dad was putting me through.
So the spare tire ended up being flat, and so my dad took it in his car up to a gas station while my friend and I went back over to her car (after closing mine back up, of course).
He came back and began figuring out how to work the jack for my car and unscrewing the bolts in my tire. Right about then, a cop passed us, crossed lanes, turned around, and came back.
As if it could get any worse, I was suddenly afraid I’d get a ticket for whatever absurd reason, and my life, as well as my bank account, was going to be over.
Turns out the cop was really nice and was helping to make sure none of the cars got too close to my dad while he was trying to fix the tire (the median was barely large enough for my tiny car….). I was really grateful for this as I was pretty worried about my dad considering half the drivers passing us were assholes, and a freaking semi-truck wouldn’t even get into the other lane (even though there was no one in his way)
Once my dad put the spare on (the spare was about half the width of my normal tire. I was pretty unnerved by the idea of driving on it), he and my friend went back to their cars, and the cop went back to his. He then proceeded to block one side of traffic so that I could get out safely and we then got a police escort to our mechanics (literally, he drove in front of me the whole way to the shop, then turned around and headed back in the direction he was going in the first place. Really nice dude.)(Oh, by the way, his nametag was the best thing I’d seen all day! His name, as stated by his nameplate, was A. Guest. Not even joking here, it was awesome!)
So anyway, we get to the mechanics and my dad proceeds to make fun of me some more while we explain about my situation. I ended up getting my free oil change, as well as four new tires (all of my tires were starting to get worn out—my mom even noticed that my front right tire was looking kinda flat the day before!), an alignment (friggin’ $79! Why doesn’t that come as a service when you get 4 flippin’ tires at $95 per tire!?), and ended up having to get a belt replaced afterward. All of this ended up costing me SEVEN HUNDRED AND FOURTEEN DOLLARS!!!!
So, since my dad convinced me to get the more expensive tires, he ended up agreeing to only make me pay $500 of it. Life still kinda sucks….
The best part of this whole situation is the irony in it!! Just a couple hours before all of this happened, another friend of mine and I were talking about school and life and how school doesn’t teach you things you really need to know for survival, like how to manage your taxes, write a resume for a job, or fix a flat tire; it only teaches you how to call for help and do research on the internet.
I feel like karma is kinda kicking me in the ass for that one.
And after that conversation, the friend I spend the rest of the day with ended up talking with me about all the places the two of us were going to go before I go to Korea next year—we were planning on going to New York, Atlanta, the beach, go on a cruise, go horseback riding in the mountains, and all sorts of other stuff that would require a bit of the $2300 I had saved up, as well as what I’d make once I started working again. It’s starting to feel like I’m going to have to start working a little bit sooner, thanks to this funny, awful episode today.
Oh, not to mention the fact that I need to fix a motor in my window for my car, and that’s gonna cost another $400-$700 I don’t want to spend.
After I got home, my dad continues to make fun of me by retelling the story to my mom for a second time in front of me, while I continuously butt in saying I didn’t know what was wrong at the time. And when I said I was going to be broke, my dad was just sorta like
To which I could only respond withand

There’s nothing left to do after this. Thank you, I love you all.

Just…. wow O.O most. attractive. person. EVER. Seriously, I’m having a hard time breathing because of how gorgeous he is O.O
