Beer gut + gold cape + red speedo = rockstar

There are much weirder Japanese music videos than this, but I like this guy because he looks hilarious and just doesn’t care… and apparently his four hot friends don’t care either.

Just when you thought K-pop couldn’t get any more irritating

Hmm I do like the helmets though…

Heyyyyyyy sexy lady

“Gangnam” is a part of Seoul known for being expensive and fancy, hence all the hot girls who run around that part of town 24/7. Apparently this video is a big deal worldwide. The dancer who first appears on the subway train looks an awful lot like Hyuna (the one from that obnoxious video I posted a few months back).

Overall I like this video, but a couple of things really bug me:

1. The two girls walking towards the camera with Psy while “snow” & shit is blowing all over them. They break character and, in true Korean girl style, try to shield themselves from all the crap flying at their faces. Ugh. Unprofessional.

2. This one is much less offensive, but the people walking backwards went out of sync with their arms swinging up and down. That should have been an easy reshoot, but apparently the director didn’t give a shit.

Another criminal assault on the senses

This musical abortion comes courtesy of Lee’s girlfriend! They’re singing in Thai, btw. At least I think it’s Thai. All of the video clips appear to be K-Pop, some of which was apparently sponsored by a chicken restaurant. Don’t ask wtf is up with the internal organs cuz I have no idea.

Turn up the speakers for this one! Your coworkers will thank you, and by thank I mean smack.

So what am I up to these days?


Well not really. Truth is I generally hate dance/club music, but I was watching this video the other day with Lee and it’s now firmly lodged in my skull. And I wish I had red flashing eyes and a giant box on my head.

bubble bubble bubble POP!

I posted this on facebook a little while ago, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with watching THE WORLD’S MOST OBNOXIOUS K-POP VIDEO again!

It’s actually just the song that’s a crime… I think this video is pretty good from a production perspective. It captures the blatant stupidity of the music, and the director pays proper tribute to Hyuna’s sweet, jiggling ass.

Cantando en Inglés es tonto

Cantando en Inglés es tonto = singing in English is stupid, according to Google translator.

As the weather continues to ease up I’m starting to spend more time sitting on my taco truck, and since I’m too goddam lazy to update the playlist I keep hearing the same Latin music I downloaded back in January while I was thinking, “when people hear this they’ll totally feel like they’re eating real Mexican food!”

So far, the few “real” Mexican people (as in they LIVE in Mexico) who have visited the truck so far have had good things to say about the food, usually calling it “pretty close” to what they’re used to. One group did me a huge favor in advising me to melt the cheese directly on the grill with the meat, and Taco de Mayo has been doing exactly that ever since which was definitely a good move since most people prefer nearly-liquified cheese over almost-melted cheese.

So getting back to the point, singing in English is stupid. Well, it’s kind of stupid on a taco truck, anyway, even though some of the Latin songs my computer plays are Americanized for the US charts. Below are a couple of songs that have grown on me over the past couple of months… “A Dios le Pido” is apparently some kind of plea to higher powers for peace and blessings, and don’t even bother asking me what the other one is about cuz I have no fucking idea. All I know is that they’re up to something dangerous because they keep saying “cuidado” which means something like “caution” or “be careful”. Yay for the Naperville Central High School Spanish department, I actually remember something from a million years ago.

Koreans love 80’s music

I like the shiny new Korean version better!

Is it wrong?

Don’t got much to say lately, so I’ll say this: I LIKE K-POP! Yeah I know. Fuck off.

This is why I want to work in the K-pop industry

Lately I’ve been trying to talk people into starting a record label with me. It’ll never happen because none of us has a clue about how to do that kind of thing… but dare to dream.

Kpop girls + cheerleader uniforms = major distraction

I’m sitting here working on iPhone App stuff and the TV is on Mnet (Korean version of MTV) and I had no choice but to stop and stare at the screaming pink cheerleaders. These girls aren’t really all that hot… relatively speaking, that is… but this video is hard to ignore when you’re working!

Kpop is funny

It’s pretty hard to go anywhere in Seoul these days without hearing this song and now I can’t get it out of my head! Somebody please kill me.
