20. [livejournal.com profile] pocochina prompted: Is there a pattern to what, if anything, inspires you to seriously revise your opinion on a narrative or character?

A compelling question.

howdy

i still owe this website an actual post but in the beantime as tommy pickles would say:


1) re: my last post

to the people who voted in favour of "shaking my head":Read more... )

to those who voted in favour of hate: god is with you.


2) since everyone is doing this meme that i created exactly 2 years and 4 months or so ago (recognise) i figured i might as well bring it full circle to remind us all who really runs this sorry crib. so with no further ado:

HOW THE FUCK DID WE BECOME FRIENDS? : the meme.

(operates as implied)


3) WHAT KIND OF SEAMLESSLY CONSTRUCTED ORCHESTRAL MELODIC BALLAD/ELECTRONIC DANCE HYBRID MASTERPIECE?


… IS IT TOO EARLY TO CALL SONG OF THE YEAR (anywhere)? BECAUSE.

when that bass dropped? reader, i birthed a fucking child.

tl;dr this band is the reason god invented pop music; nothing to see here.


((((P.S. I WOULD LIKE TO THANK NOT ONLY GOD BUT ALSO JESUS. TAKE ME TO CHURCH, YOUR FAVES WISH THEY COULD (BUT THEY CAN'T), &c.&c. """""""second best"""""""" vocalist my HAIrY SPLeEN. I WILL FIGHT YOU.))))

(would i get into a knife fight over this? probably.) #biases are serious business

I haven’t posted in so long that I’m sure some of you have assumed I’ve died. Indeed this is about what has happened. Death by final papers. Ah, academia. But in happier news I am on the homestretch, ergo post.

i.  Eleonore and I are making way on an evil plot to induct Lizzie into the SHINee world. Thus, we have carefully compiled an evil intro playlist* designed to wreak havoc and appease the dark lord &c. &c. (Note to certain flisters: Don’t even think about arguing over song choices yo, y’all know “Dazzling Girl” is secretly their best song.) fyi I've used music videos where applicable on account of the fact that SHINee has some truly terriblemazing MVs that frankly must be seen for oneself. The "best" is probably the one for "Lucifer" (the first one). The more you see it the less sense it makes. Why does it play like a musical car commercial. WTH are those wispy patronus things about? Are they supposed to represent the devil possessing them (to dance complicatedly in front of a bunch of shiny cars)? We may never know. But everyone looks bangin' so who cares?

I'd also advise watching their lives because melodramatic yet technically sound belting + choreo porn ("how do they breathe" -- that too we may never know). Please follow the links and cry.

*not including the latest album as that has already been linked accordingly and produced excellent results mainly thanks to Lee Taemin’s propensity to whore around shirtless in a tacky black fur coat, Satan bless that disturbed child

ii. I have been watching The Heirs.LOVE IS THE MOMENT /cue )

iii. I want to belatedly do that Halloween Trick or Treat meme but I worry about time/responsibilities. So, I guess, comment on this post with "TRICK OR TREAT" and I will probably link you something cool but maybe with a bit of delay because the real life? Alternately, depending on who you are, I may give you a trick instead. :D

P.S. Dear Kelsey: I can't believe you sent me a Namu-shaped fridge magnet. (Btw, lol that these even exist.) I will never be able to put it up for fear of other people in the house asking if it's "one of those Korean dudes that I like who look like girls". We will not talk about the contents of your letter. NOPE.

this post is mostly for Emmie and Doris tbh

people. friends of mine. let me inform you as to the new ruination of my existence.

for months now i've been watching the likes of Jamie, Lauren, Kelsey, Lizzie, and Eleonore frolicking in kpop land, and yet managed to avoid being afflicted myself... until a few days ago, when Eleonore bombarded me with links designed to corrupt my soul. and i regret to say she was successful in that venture. forgive me friends for i am weak.

for the uninformed, Infinite is, uh, a FAIRLY popular Korean pop boy band with a shitload of synchronized choreography and a fandom that seems to be invading the entire planet. given my not-even-a-secret lifelong penchant for boy bands it's a wonder i only tapped into this now, but no matter.

first off i have to say that Korean pop music is far superior to the Western sort. i actually have an epic love/hate relationship with pop music -- the "hate" deriving from the fact that the Western pop industry is so damn lazy -- but after just a few days going through Infinite's discography (+ a couple other bands) i feel as though i have been revived from a 10+year fatigue. FRIENDS, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT MY EMOTIONS ARE DOING.

i'll admit, my life right now mostly revolves around the question: "how is Nam Woohyun a real person????" (for various reasons, such as the cray-cray of the fandom and the inexplicable prettiness of all the dudes, i assumed that the band itself didn't actually possess any talent. i stand corrected.) i'll just be here creepily replaying 1:55-2:05 of this song because his vibrato/pitch/everything is the stuff my ovaries every vocal coach's dreams are made of. (i am not a vocal coach.) (but i would assume they all dream of Nam Woohyun.)

and by all means let us gather round and discuss how i instantly fixate on "The Greasy One", a.k.a. The One Infamous For Parading Round Open-Shirted Onstage I NEVER CLAIMED NOT TO BE EMBARRASSINGLY PREDICTABLE KBYE.


um. anyway, i like all the members, promise. and this is really supposed to be an introductory/rec post thing to lure more unfortunate souls in. if anyone is really curious/interested, this vid is probably the best in terms of O.O CHOREO + MY LOINS + "give me all their outfits", &c. &c. and it made #1 on some yearly Korean billboard thing so. if this is your jam then by all means come join me and the above people in hell.


@ J/L/K/E: i give you permission to spam me with rude things in comments. do your worst, children.
