Happy Labor Day Weekend! =) It's been so freakin' hot here in SD, it sucks! But yeah, I'm so glad for a break from work! It's been about a month since I last updated, so let's get to it!

K-POP!
All these people I care about are promoting right now and it's both awesome and annoying, LOLOL. Awesome because, hello, people and music I like and a bunch of performances to watch every week! But annoying because a lot of stuff to keep up with!

First there was Seungri! He's currently the only BB member whose solo efforts I actually care about (GD, I'm totally side-eying you right now, please stop with your ridiculousness and put out music I like and stop wearing all those crappy clothes!). He came out with his teaser for his new album a few weeks ago and when I watched it, I almost died, LOL. Seriously, I knew it said explicit, but it definitely didn't register and I was like O_O and then my mom walked by while it was at the part with the guy pulling down the girl's panties and I was like NOOOOO DON'T LOOK AT MEEEEEE and I almost had a heart attack, LOLOLOL. Then his single came out and his album and I've been jamming to it all, obviously! My favorite song on the album is probably Love Box, but yeah, the album is pretty solid.

Some of Seungri's comeback performances! )

Then there was Henry! ♥♥ You all know how much I love Henry, it's seriously a lot! And he's back with my favorite, 1-4-3! When SMTOWN posted the video of Henry singing 1-4-3 acoustic and saying that he'd be coming back with that song, I totally FREAKED OUT!


Seriously, SO GOOD! Also, the fact that there were actually English subtitles for this video was A+.

Then there was the music video!

Totally cute! I hate Henry's blond hair though -- it just washes him out so much, please be getting rid of it soon. =( Amber and Henry's hair match in this video though, LOL. She rocks it slightly better, but yeah. Wish there was more Amber and less random girl because obviously Henry and Amber are the best!

Some Henry comeback performances! )

There was also Henry on 100% Entertainment, which you should definitely watch because it is great!

Seriously, I love Show so much and Butterfly is so cute and Henry is adorable with his fail Chinese and going along with everything. ♥


There was also a comeback from Nu'est, which is totally cute as well. And Exo has a new song, Growl, which is definitely more my tastes than Wolf was. And bonus, a comeback from Sunmi (from Wonder Girls)! I didn't even know she was having a comeback, but this was one of the rare times that I downloaded and watched the whole M! Countdown episode from the 22nd, so I saw her comeback song and it was so awesome. it's definitely been stuck in my head forever!

SO GOOD!


SHOPPING
Today I went to the La Americas outlet mall down by the border with [personal profile] aznearthdragon and the brother. It was the first time we've ever been there and it's huge! Also, it's kinda weird being right next to the border! I mean, I've never been outside of the US and the fence of the border was right there on the other side of the back parking lot! Anyway, we were there for most of the day and went to a bunch of stores, but in the end, we didn't end up getting anything, LOL. Afterwards, we went to Plaza Bonita, where the brother got some jeans, took a break at home to eat, then went to Mission Valley to get another pair of jeans from Macy's (since they didn't have the ones the brother wanted in stock at the one in Plaza Bonita). So basically a day full of shopping, though I didn't get anything myself.

In other news, I bought a couple more tops from Urkye during their sale this month and they are awesome, of course. ♥ I didn't know how much of a difference there would be buying shirts made with room for your boobs, but now that I have some, it's definitely hard to go back to wearing my other shirts. I also just ordered this dress the other day when it was on sale (and the last of my size! But it looks like they've restocked, lol), so I'm hoping to get it soon since it seems like a super easy dress to wear that I can also wear to work (and it's been so hot lately, it would be great!). I need to save up to buy from BiuBiu also! They have cute things, but their shipping is slightly more. =/


NIGHT VALE!
A few weeks ago I started listening to Welcome to Night Vale and it is GREAT! I basically started listening to it at work and then I burned through all the episodes out so far in, like, two days, LOL. It's basically a community radio station for a fictional desert town called Night Vale. I'm so amused by the weirdness that is Night Vale and how totally normal it all is. The whole time I was listening to the show, I wished there was someone else I knew listening to it so I could discuss all the crazy stuff that happens and all the random stuff Cecil (the narrator/radio host) says! I basically gave a running commentary to one of my friends via IM while I was listening to some of the episodes, but it would have been greater if she knew what I was talking about, LOLOLOL. You should definitely listen if you haven't already: iTunes (eww) / Libsyn / Soundcloud.


I had more to say, but I'm getting sleepy, so this will be it for now. Hopefully this heatwave dies down a bit soon 'cause it sucks, especially when you're trying to sleep! =( I know that the heat here is probably nothing compared to the heatwaves other parts of the country are experiencing, but whatever, we San Diegans are weak when it comes to the weather! We have our typical good weather range and anytime it's a couple degrees hotter or cooler than normal, we moan and complain. As a native, I'm perfectly fine admitting it and it doesn't change the fact that I don't like it! XP

BIG BANG!

I bought tickets to see Big Bang in Anaheim on November 2! I can't believe I did it, I was debating whether I should go or not for the longest time today before deciding to do it, LOL. I feel so poor now, but I'm sure it'll be awesome. XD
remula: (Default)
  1. KIM KIBUM!!!

    *___________* Seriously, this trailer, LOLOLOL! I have no idea what his new drama's about, but the trailer is totally hot and adorable. XD


  2. BIG BANG!

    Can we talk about WTF GD's pants are and WTF that skirt is? LOLOLOL! I mean, really! The scarf is obviously there to hide the rip in his crotch -- that's the only explanation I can come up with, LOLOLOLOL!

    Also, Big Bang on Go Show was awesome. Some highlights include TOP randomly sitting in the host's lap, Taeyang's sushi dance, and how serious Daesung takes facial cleaning, lol. ♥


  3. MESA!
    Only three more weeks until Mesa's over! I can't wait! It's only been one week of work + school and I already feel tired, lol. Plus the drive to and from work is so long! ;_____; I mean, there isn't much traffic (except there was today for some reason), but it still takes 40 minutes to get there one way! =( Ridiculous! And then when I get home, I just wanna relax.=/ Oh well, what can you do...

I need to get some studying done now.

  1. BIG BANG @ ALIVE PRESS CONFERENCE IN TAIWAN
    They are so adorable! The psychological test results were hilarious, LOLOL! And it was so cute when they were speaking Chinese! Especially how happy TOP was to say "我是TOP!" LOLOL. ♥


  2. NU'EST

    I saw their debut stage on M! Countdown last month and thought this song was super catchy, but I didn't get around to downloading it until last night. And then I didn't get around to watching the video until this morning (I generally don't watch MVs). Anyway, I like this song and the video is pretty good. (I haven't looked at the lyrics, but based on the video, I'm assuming it's about bullying.)

    I checked on Wiki and these boys are SO YOUNG! Four of them are younger than my brother and that's just weird to me, LOL. I don't know any of their names, but the blond one that looks like a girl (he's so pretty!) is totally my favorite, LOLOL. ♥


I should probably get around to studying for Chinese now... =/
remula: (Default)
  1. MESA / CHINESE
    First off, WTF, why are there still six more weeks of class?! =( I hate semester system so much! Quarter system is infinitely better. If this were quarter system, we'd already be done because we've already had class for ten weeks! x_x Also, it sucks to go back after spring break (which was last week). Stupid school. =(

    In some totally-not-news, I still suck at speaking Chinese. =/ Yesterday in class, the professor decided he wanted to check everyone's tones, since half the class was missing, and so we had to choose a dialogue from the book to read to him. I decided to choose the most recent one, even though I totally didn't even study it, because we need to memorize that one for the oral final anyway. I totally sucked, lol. I think it was a combination of nervousness and just my own fail-ness. =/

    I was suppose to give my oral presentation yesterday too, but I think the professor forgot about that 'cause it took basically the whole time to check everyone. Also the other person who was suppose to go yesterday wasn't there either. I'm kinda glad because I hate presenting, but I kinda wish I just got it over with. =/ Now I probably have to present tomorrow and we have a test tomorrow. =(((((( Ugh, life.


  2. ICE SKATING & HIKING
    This past weekend I went ice skating and hiking! On Saturday we went ice skating -- I kinda sucked in the beginning, but by the end I got the hang of it. My brother, though, was totally fail, LOLOLOL. NGL, It was pretty hilarious watching him. XP

    On Sunday, we went hiking at Cowles Mountain. That one was a million times easier than the hike to Potato Chip Rock, LOL. Sadly on the way down, I had to fall, of course, and I got a bruise on my left knee. x_x It's in the same location as the one I got back when I fell at Montana de Oro, but luckily it isn't a big as that one. It still hurts though. =/

    In other news, apparently most stores are CLOSED on Easter -- who knew?! Apparently not us, that's for sure, LOLOLOL, because after our hike, we were like, "Let's go to the mall!" and then we drove to Parkway Plaza, which is an indoor mall, and seriously, almost nothing was open! It was seriously mindbogging -- I mean, stores are usually open on holidays, right? Well, now we know, LOL.


  3. YG ON STRONG HEART
    Slightly old and probably everyone has seen it already, but the YG Family special on Strong Heart was awesome! I haven't watched the second episode subbed yet 'cause I'm waiting for Royal Ace's version, but I did watch the raw and read a rough summary of it, so at least I know the gist, lol. Anyway, in case you haven't seen it yet...

    120327 Strong Heart - Episode 123
    Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3

    And, if you don't have the patience to wait for the RAS version...

    120403 Strong Heart - Episode 124

    My favorite part has to be when TOP tries to sneak off to use the restroom in the first part. What a dork, LOLOLOL. ♥ Also Dara's "When I Don't Have Aegyo" parody was hilarious. XD There were also other great moments, but I'll just leave it at that.


  4. EXO
    I watched the Debut Showcase thing that SM posted on YT because I was curious, but TBH, I wasn't really that into them? I mean, I didn't watch any of the teasers or MVs or anything before, so I didn't really have any expectations. The concept of two subgroups promoting the same album/songs is totally ridiculous to me though (and so obviously a ploy to just get the most money possible since fans will have to buy double everything). Anyway, ignoring that, I'm willing to give them a chance to win me over through variety shows (because at this point, I don't really care for their songs enough to watch performances, lol). I downloaded their mini-album and my favorites are History and Machine. Also Two Moons (K / M) because that song is ridiculous in the best way, LOLOLOLOL.

    Based off the showcase thing, most of my favorites (based on looks because I'm shallow like that) are in EXO-M. (I wish all my favorites were in the same group because then there would be less effort involved in following them, LOLOLOL.) I looked on Wiki and these boys are all so young! I guess it's okay though, because my feelings for them are all in the OMG YOU ARE SO CUTE variety, lol. Anyway, the only thing I've watched is EXO-M on Sina Chat and they were so ridiculously awkward and adorable, LOLOLOL. I still don't really know all their names yet, but I really like the four Chinese members, especially Kris and LuHan -- they are adorable! (I already admitted I'm shallow.)

I have been super into Big Bang lately which means I've pretty much been watching all the things. (You know, since I have no life.) Anyway, let's just say this is pretty much a recap of Big Bang stuff from the last two weeks, LOL.

  1. RUNNING MAN!
    Episode 84 & Episode 85 from KShowNow. (I'm still waiting for iSUBS to finish subbing these two episodes, since their subs are the best, but this totally works in the mean time. XP)

    They are so adorably fail in the first part, lol. ♥ I love how TOP follows Daesung around in the beginning -- it's so cute! And Seungri, he was so ridiculous, LOLOLOL. If nothing else, he should have at least hid the bag of bells before attempting his plan. And then there was Taeyang being totally cute and dorky, TOP being fail at running, and the ridiculous GD vs HaHa chase, LOLOLOL.

    I thought the second part was WAY more epic than the first one, but man, those rings made me cringe SO MUCH with secondhand embarrassment, LOLOLOL. I like how all the boys kept gathering together whenever they got someone on the Running Man team -- it was ridiculously adorable. ♥


  2. FANTASTIC BABY!
    My favorite! Plus, it's also the best song for live performances, therefore posting pretty much all of their performances of it so far, LOLOLOL. XP (Not that I don't like Blue or Bad Boy, because I do, but you have to admit that Fantastic Baby is the most exciting to see!)

    120309 Alive Comeback Show


    BOOM SHA-KA-LA-LA! )


  3. MORE STUFF!
    120309 Alive Comeback Show -- Which includes Tonight, Blue, Fantastic Baby, Love Dust, Bad Boy, Wings, and Last Farewell, with some behind-the-scenes and interviews in between the performances.

    120318 You & I -- In which they perform Tonight, Blue, Bad Boy, Fantastic Baby, and Lies, but the best part is the interview in the middle, LOL.

    120315 M! Countdown - Ain't No Fun -- In which Seungri falls down around 1:30 and I laughed my ass off. XP

    YG On Air -- There's Bad Boy, in which Seungri wears ridiculous shorts over skinny jeans, LOLOLOL. IDK, I couldn't stop staring at them and wondering WTF he (or his stylists) were thinking. Also, Blue, which just came out today.

    Also, all of Seungri's dance tutorials
  4. because he is ridiculously adorable, lol. ♥


In conclusion, Big Bang is awesome! XP

[ETA]: Pixie Lott f/ GD&TOP - Dancing On My Own -- I've never heard of Pixie Lott, but this song is awesome. ♥

[livejournal.com profile] aznanimefan[livejournal.com profile] remula


FINALLY! ♥ I've been waiting forever for that name to be purged, LOLOLOL. XP

Also, new Big Bang MV!


WOW, FANTASTIC BABY! BOOM SHA-KA-LA-KA! BOOM SHA-KA-LA-KA! XP I love this song, lololololol. I mean, the whole album is awesome, but when they were doing those short promo clips on YT before the release date, I was most looking forward to this one. XD

  1. BIG BANG!

    I'm digging this song SO MUCH! ♥♥


  2. JURY DUTY!
    Remember back, like, a month ago, when I said I had jury duty? I don't think I ever said anything on here about it, but that day they said they were looking for jurors to be on a long two-month criminal case and I was called back to be a potential juror. Anyway, I had to go back, like, three times. The first callback was to get more info on the case and to fill out questionaires, the second one was a follow-up on the questionaires, and the last callback was for final selection, which was on Tuesday. This was my first time going through this process because the other 2-3 times I've had jury duty, I just showed up on the first day and my name was never called, lol.

    So yeah, on Tuesday, they were making the final juror selections -- if you've never experienced it, the way it works is they have 12 potential jurors sitting in the box and each side would take turns excusing one person from the box and then the next potential juror would replaced the excused person until a jury is picked. I happened to be near the end of the line of potential jurors of the first set (about 50-ish people? I think they had about 100-ish potential jurors which they split into two groups), so I kinda thought they might not even get to me since it was pretty fast in the beginning and was starting to slow down, lol. They did get to me though and I was actually really nervous sitting in the box even though I didn't even have to do anything but sit there, LOL. But yeah, I think it was because the five or so people before me got excused right away, before they even got a chance to sit down in the box, so I was hoping for that too! But I ended up sitting in there for (what felt like) a long while because both sides were taking a long time deciding on who they wanted to excuse and one of the sides started passing on their turn, so I was kinda worried that I would end up on the jury! There were, like, ten other people excused while I was sitting there before I was finally excused.

    Anyway, that was my ridiculously boring jury duty story, LOL. I'm glad I didn't have to be on the jury for it. I mean, I don't have a job, so it's not like it would have mattered that I would be on a long case, but I don't think I could have handled the case itself. I don't think I'm suppose to talk about any details or anything, but it was a pretty big case with some pretty serious charges, so yeah.


  3. CHINESE!
    We had a pinyin test in Chinese class on Tuesday! We went over the answers right away afterward and I actually did better than I expected, lol. I mean, I know I took Chinese before, but I kinda totally fail at pinyin and I think pinyin is, like, the hardest part of learning Chinese -- I mean, besides the speaking part, LOLOLOL.

    Anyway, while we're talking about class, can I say how much I hate semester system? Because seriously, quarter system is definitely more my speed! 16 weeks in one class seems like FOREVER, especially considering we'd be halfway through if this was quarter system. I'd forgotten how torturously LONG semester system was and how slow it was too. I'm tired of going to class already, lol, but May is so far away. =(


That's pretty much it. As for job hunting, it's whatever. Same old, same old. Send out resumes, hear back except for once-in-a-blue-moon, and then nothing. =/
