I wish TRL would do something else with the twins other than having them so weird & crazy & dare I say it even stupid challenges that they already do on their channel. Like let them host! Or let them walk around the outside audience & interact with fans. I’m happy that they’re on tv & living out their dream! But they have so much more potential then what the producers of TRL is letting them do!
that frustrating thing where you make yourself vulnerable to someone by trying to actually talk through a point of contention and it ends with them drawing a bunch of nasty conclusions about you and making you feel shitty
it shouldn’t matter what strangers think about me, but it can’t help but feel like an attack on my identity and sense of self when someone decides “we disagree because you are Bad”
Tablo: Throughout the entire time (3 years) it took to resolve the controversy, [Hye Jung, Tablo’s wife] never once made it seem like she was experiencing any hardships.
Host: Even though it was probably really difficult for her.
Tablo: Yes, it was probably even more difficult for her than for me. Much more difficult. But she always said, “It’s okay, it’s okay.”
But, we did have one conflict.
We were eating together, and because I always had this troubled look on my face, the atmosphere while we were eating wasn’t very good.
Suddenly, Hye Jung-ie slammed her spoon on the table.
“Hurry up and cry. Just hurry up and cry. Cry as much as you want,” she said.
And at those words, I really cried.
She told me to just cry it all out now and put an end to all of it. She told me, “You’re not someone who can’t beat this. You’re stronger than this.”
So, like a child, I cried and cried.
Host: Did she not cry with you?
Tablo: She didn’t cry then, but when the whole controversy was resolved, one day, I asked her, “It was hard, wasn’t it?” And then she started crying really hard. She had held it all in. Even though she’d been wanting to cry, she thought it would, as a result, make me weaker.
While walking to work this morning, a FINE young gentleman came out of the student center wearing a full tux with tails. I did a double take at the sheer level of fancy that was happening so early on a Wednesday morning! He also clearly had a mallet bag and plays percussion.
My inner band geek and fancy lady got SUPER stoked, and I proceeded to make all the dirty “You can bang MY drum anytime, sir!” jokes in my head. In my head, though. I try to stay classy. ;)
