Musical Friday w Lee Ji Hyung

I cam across this thanks to the Happy Robot Channel, while looking up videos for last weeks Musical Friday.

What amused me about this song, was the mix of a few strings. I played the violin during my youth. Not enough to be awesome, and I forgot most of it since I haven’t played in about 13 years. However it is one of my first loves for instruments.

Musical Friday w Thornapple

I first came across Thornapple thanks to Eat You Kimchi’s Video.

So I did some searching, and pretty much agreed with all that was said in this review.

In any case, today we have a Korean Indie group called Thornapple.

Soothing in an odd way, and just melodic at the same time.

Musical Friday with G.O.D Saturday Night

Boy, am I easily amused.

G.O.D was a group back in the days of early Kpop. I was a partial fan. I was more interested in other groups, but loved a few of their songs (well written).

They’ve gone through a lot…but here they are, back together again.

Anyway I laughed hard at the auto shop part xD
Oh and the last minute of it, when it takes them back.

Yesterday I finished my last class.

I wrote my last essay, and last test. Well…at least for the next two years. Not sure if I want to pursue more yet.

In any case, it isn’t a big deal. It took me far longer than others. But I’m thankful that I did go back to it after finishing up my ECE diploma. University of Toronto was one of my fears. It caused lots of days where I just would cry on the bus home, hermit myself multiple times, regretted not going to other universities, and got to the point where I just hated life. So I am glad I took a break from it. I needed to be able to step back.

So, finally I have finished. Again, it isn’t a huge deal, but it is an obstacle I’m glad that I did come to overcome.

In any case, the fact that I am done, means I can FINALLY get back to the blog. You have no idea how hard it was not being able to churn out posts. I miss chatting with you folks on Twitter, Facebook, or here on the blog…You were all definitely missed :)

If everything goes as planned (meaning I catch up on some sleep, the week was hellish for me), I should be back to regular scheduling on Sunday. I got a lot to share…makeup…food…randoms…so I can’t wait!

For now…hope that you all have a great Friday! Kick up your feet and enjoy the weekend :D

Musical Friday w So Ji Sub/소지섭

I’ve always had a mini crush on So Ji Sub. According to my friend, I have weird taste. In any case, I couldn’t help but drool a little in the intro. I loved the weird flash contrast that played in the beginning.

The shoe choice while he is sitting against the car, caught my eye. I mean far be it from me to judge another of their shoe. But it just stood out against the grey, sleep, awesome background…so I giggled. Perhaps it was the contrast against the more macho stance he takes. A sort of juxtaposition?

However, the lyrics…just…it gives us a little deeper glimpse in to what goes through his mind. Inner feelings. Here’s a link for the English Translation.

More often than not, we are judged by how we appear to be. Not because of who we actually are. So it is interesting to see this music video, SJS’s view of the world he interacts with.
