Ipselenti at Korea University. Lots of cool performers: Huh Gak, Epik High, Gummy, A Pink, 2ne1, Kim Bumsoo, Skull and Haha. Also lots of cheering.. and I mean LOTS of cheering.. like too much cheering. But it was still fun :)
Just realized that I haven’t made any substantial posts of late.
The concert last night was fun. DreamingofKorea and her little sis came with me. We got super lucky and found a meat restaurant right by the stage so we didn’t have to fight the crowd and we could eat dinner at the same time.
It was odd seeing a friend of mine on stage performing for hundreds of screaming fans. He was messaging me all before the show and all day today. Mentioned he couldn’t see me standing on my chair but promised to give me a shout-out next time. (Ha! Right…) The music was awesome. I’ve never been a big reggae fan, but I’m definitely getting my hands on this one.
He’s currently laughing at my telling him he’s going to have to remember to say “off the record” during the interview (if one can properly laugh through Kakao). Pretty sure it’s going to be incredibly candid seeing as Skull is an incredibly candid person in general… almost to a fault.
Anyway, got the Artisan Beats interview scheduled for next week over dinner (excitement). Waiting on Skull and Haha’s manager to get back to me with a day and time for theirs and for Scott to let me know if Yoon Do-hyun is up for the band interview (and hopefully schedule that this week as well).
Work is getting good, but insane, as you can tell. I’ll be doing at least one to two interviews a week (on top of my usually weekly work with CLASH, Itaewon Open Mic, the screenplay and editing) for possibly the next few months since I’ve been promised 15 to 20 Korean hip-hop artists to interview.
It’s definitely a fun series to embark on, mostly because these guys are hilarious and fun to interview/hang out with, and because I really admire the work they do in the underground hip-hop culture. But I feel like I’m going to need another vacation soon…
That’s about all, I suppose. Had a moment today where I was starting to feel a little overwhelmed and depressed. But I managed to pull myself out of it. Had some stuff going on lately that my therapist is going to get an earful about tomorrow. Sometimes I really hate those little reminders that life is a work in progress and you have to take things a day at a time. I usually forget this and then get knocked on my ass quite unexpectedly.
But such is life. All I can do is continue to pull myself out of bed every morning determined to be a better person than day than I was the day before. And not let failures or screw-ups take over. Otherwise that would be way too depressing…
And with that, off to Itaewon Open Mic and then home. Hoping to get some cleaning and laundry done this weekend… Oh, and to stay out of trouble.
directions Put the seasoned silk worms in a pan. Add some water. add half of an instant noodle square to the pan and cook it. Don’t add the soup mix.
Reviews Park Myung Soo: I asked him before if he added soup mix. It tastes like there’s soup mix in here. Yoo Jae Suk: if you look at the color it looks like the instant noodle soup mix was added. This tastes very similar to silk worm soup, but adding the instant noodles, makes it very savory. NC.A: it’s quite addictive. I kept going for more. It’s great.
Color correcting old comics can be frustrating but super rewarding when you get it right. Most old comics you see are horribly photoshopped (bad contrast, no color correction, etc) that I’ve taken it upon myself to learn how to do it the right way. I’m tempted to make a little tutorial…anyone interested?
Also, I just love this how badass Scarecrow is on this page. He breaks a pool cube with his knee. Mistress likes~

This past week was anyone’s game! With all top three songs scoring in the low 800s, the third week of August was wide open for anyone to take the top spot. In the end, the honors went to the Wonder Girls. After three weeks being second best behind GFRIEND, “Why So Lonely” recaptured the top spot on our chart. “Why So Lonely” was rewarded for its consistency across all chart sources despite not…
