RIP Neil Armstrong

Astronaut Neil Armstrong dies at 82

I remember as a child I used to curl up on a couch in my grandparents library to read about him and Apollo 11. He was my hero in grade school. At a young age, Neil Armstrong made me realize that anything is possible.

RIP Sir Neil Armstrong. You will be remembered for as long as mankind exists.

[KPOP Review] Uncommitted MV by Xia Junsu

Actually, this is not a KPOP MV but the artist is, first and foremost, a KPOP artist who happens to be singing an English song.

Prior to the release of the full music video I didn't watch any of the teasers. I want to experience (for once) the pleasure of watching a video and listening to a song without a clue on what's in it or what’s it about. The memory of that Tarantallegra teaser that nearly ruined my excitement for a new Junsu song is still fresh and I don't want to experience that again. Tarantallegra was, after all, a beautiful song with a highly-praised devil-may-care MV. It was just the teasers that ruined it for me.

I was online the minute the full MV of Uncommitted was released and I went to YouTube faster than I can say Tarantallegra. I had the intention of focusing on the music video and understanding it before I blurt out nasty comments but when I was watching it I was distracted with the English or rather Junsu’s English-language speaking skills.

All for the love of K-Drama

Watching Korean dramas can take up a lot of energy. Not just the subtitle reading but also the giggling and crying that comes with it. And if you’re in the business of watching Korean dramas from DVDs (Yes! the jack-sparrow-kind of DVD! haha) for quite a while now, you’re likely a pro in deciphering the correct translation of the dialogues once you hit the final four episodes. It takes messy to a whole new level. I know! It’s headache-inducing, hair-pulling, I-wish-those-suckers-do-their-pirating-right kind of messy. I used to scream murder when I hit that bump in the road. Aigoo. The things you do for your addiction.
