SOTM #10

Was planning on doing like three posts within the last week and a half but 1) work and 2) I’ve been really lazy. So please forgive me and read about/listen to these songs that I love at the moment.

Also before we get to the songs, I’ve decided that I’ll post links to download the songs that I list on my SOTM posts because I figure, if it were me and I’d heard a song on a blog that I really liked that I would want them to post a link so I could put said song on my iPod. So that’s what I’m going to do from now on.

SEO IN YOUNG.

Seo in Young just released a promo single for her new mini-album and it is OMG so freaking amazing! Very reminiscent of KARA’s Step Up in that it’s not full of aegyo or faux “fierceness” and it’s not annoyingly repetitive, it’s just a great pop track. So, I feel I have to give this song it’s own post 1) because I absolutely love Seo In Young. Love her. South Korea’s Diva. and 2) It’s one of the few Kpop tracks that I actually can say I love this year.

SONGS OF THE MOMENT #5

Rain – Busan Girl (Thank you Rain, you marvelous man. Thank you for finally releasing something! The song is great and soooo Rain, I can not even deal. I missed him. I swear to you guys, he is the best performer in Kpop. All those other idols are a joke compared to him…with the exception of Lee Jung Hyun, TV5XQ, Se7en, and Big Bang…and a couple of others. They are all great performers too but they still can’t compare to Rain on stage. I swear, I am going to be bawling for like two days when he leaves for military service (which is said to be around the end of the year.) 

AK-69 – P.O.R.S.C.H.E. MUSIC (It’s no secret that I have a serious love for AK-69. He’s an awesome rapper and he makes great music. It just sucks that most J-urban fans don’t listen to him…because they’re to0 busy being stuck up VERBAL’s ass.)

Kanjani8 – ツブサニコイ (I’ll admit that while I love Ryo, I’m not the biggest fan of K8, it’s not that I think their music is bad (it’s not. It’s great actually…very TOKIO/Kinki style) but it’s just that I’ve never been able to get obsessed with them like I have with KAT-TUN or Arashi. I think maybe I should try though, because this song is great, the entire single is.)

Red Hot Chili Peppers – The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie (Two weeks until the new album~!!! I can’t wait. )

Seo in Guk – Shake it Up

Secret – My Boy (God, Madonna was so horrid in Japanese. The only good thing about that single, was that it made me really like this song.)

Matsushita Yuya – Super Drive (I downloaded an HQ version of the PV and OMG he looks so gorgeous…giving me those Se7en vibes. He actually always reminds me a lot of Se7en…in all areas. I would LOVE for them to collab one day. I’d probably die though lol.)

Elizabeth – PPAPPA PIEROTT (This is the cheapest video I have seen in awhile. And that’s saying a lot, since I watch VK PVs on a semi-regular basis…but the song is hella catchy and these girls have amazing voices…They should have had them release a ballad instead)

 

Ugh. Started watching Zenkai Girl and God Ryo is too fucking precious! I love him so much, I could stare at him for days I swear. But besides the great eye candy, the drama itself is also really good, Hinata is a diva! …It’s kind of taken over Ikemen Desu ne as the “Drama I’m addicted to atm”. 

Will try to have an actual post out some time tomorrow.

SONGS OF THE MOMENT

plenty-ボクのために歌う吟 (I found out about this band literally three days ago. But the frontman’s voice entrances me. It’s very…high. But not in an annoying way. Not at all. Like I said, it’s very entrancing.  He also has a very androgynous look…which just made me even more intrigued by him…anyway, I really recommend you give them a try.)

.

Jeong JiWoon (member of  2AM) – 걸어온다 (Wow wow wow. JYP. You are not playing around. 2PM’s album, Miss A’s album, and now this? Seriously, everything that JYP’s artists have been putting out lately have been shitting on everybody else in Kpop right now. Even if you don’t listen to Kpop, find this single and download it. )

.

Dir en Grey – VANITAS (Only listened to a few songs so far from their new album, but I am loving what I’m hearing.)

.

Angela Aki -心の戦士

.

Rainie Yang – 仰望 (I didn’t even know she was coming out with a new album! This song is so beautiful. Oh Rainie, I love you so much. I need to catch up on her drama actually…)

.

Teen Top – First Kiss (I don’t even like Teen Top, but I really love this song…and I don’t even know why. Maybe because it gives me old school RnB vibes?)

.

Chris Brown – Next 2 You ft. Justin Beiber (Don’t judge me. I have come to love this fucking song. I even went and bought Chris Brown’s album yesterday because of it. His album is really good btw…just sayin’)

Idk why people say EunHyuk is ugly…I mean yeah he looks like a monkey when he smiles but he is super cute imo. I think he’s one of the top three as far as looks in Suju.

Yes, I saw the teaser for Mr. Simple (wtf is that title anyway?), even though I could care less about SUJU’s comeback (Especially after I saw those teaser photos…) I must say I am liking the jazzy feel the song has to it ( definitely different from the norm in Kpop)…

Someone tweeted GACKT and told him that Heechul said he was his favorite (I’m guessing his favorite Japanese artist) and he was like “who? which one?” Lol oh G. If Heechul really did say that though…that just gives me even more reason to like him (even though I don’t like Suju, I do love me some Heechul.)

SOMEBODY TO LOVE.

Back home in Louisiana. Glad to see my babies(my dogs), but I’m missing Florida already.

For people who live in the U.S., I hope everyone had a great 4th of July. I feel so bad because I did a post on the 4th and forgot to wish Jin and especially GACKT a happy birthday. 27 and 38….wow. (and Canadians too! Canada’s independence day was like a week before right?)

Bought a shit ton of stuff while I was there…I’m so broke right now. Gonna have to wait until next week to order Ayu’s mini-album.

This post ended up being a little longer than I wanted it to be, because I ended up rambling on the Namie section. Blegh. Sorry.

RUN THE HEART.

I feel like I have to post something other than the music challenges…I’ve just been all over the place. I don’t get to leave Louisiana very often so when I do, I like to go site seeing as much as possible. Plus it’s my first time in Miami so I’m trying to make the most of it.

Before we get onto the post though…The last few posts I briefly talked about how annoyed I’ve been with Kpop/Jpop fans and their elitism…anyway, someone I’m friends with on tumblr sent me a link from this website where the person talked about exactly whats been annoying the shit out of me for the past month.

The website is called AntiKpop-fangirl (they are not anti-kpop, they can’t stand the fangirls.), after reading that post, I lurked around the site and basically they talk about all kinds of shit that annoys them about fangirls and the fandom. Some of the things they said were kind of harsh and I didn’t agree with, but this post that they did…I agree 100%. It touched on everything I felt and then some.

Anyway, If you’re a Kpop fan and you aren’t too sensitive about your fandom be free to check out the entire site…but really I only wanted to link that specific post .

Onto this entry.

MTV MUSIC AID JAPAN …review?

So, The MTV Music Japan Aid aired last weekend. I watched the performances of course and was slightly disappointed. Though really not too much because majority of the people they had as performers aren’t that great at performing anyway. But I expected them to do better than they did.  Here my thoughts of (some of) the performances, along with the performances themsleves:

I WAS HERE.

This is totally random but, I was a huge bandwagon bitch.

Yes. Yes I was.

I got into Japanese music when I was 13 and I said all that usual weeaboo/Koreaboo shit about how American music sucks and all they talk about is this, this, and that and Japanese music was the best thing in the entire world. I said it mainly because, where I was going for news and music, people were saying similar things, so I jumped onto what they were saying.

I stopped that shit quick once my brother (who got me into Japanese music btw) told me about myself lol

…And I am ashamed to admit this, but I also hated Ayu (yes, you read that right) because I was a Namie and Utada fan first and we all know their fans hate Ayu and I jumped on that bandwagon of hating her…but I saw the light. THANK GOD. Forgive me Goddess Ayu.

Why did I say all of this?

Because I see it with Asian pop fans all of the time, a lot more than usual.

It makes me wonder if they’ll ever grow out of that (hating every other country’s music if it isn’t Jpop, Kpop, Cpop etc etc) like I did, or if they’ll just keep thinking that way? I know everytime I think about my weeaboo stage, I cringe.

Anyway, it’s 6:20 in the morning and I haven’t been to bed yet, so let me get this post out really quick
