[ADMIN] Quick update...

Once again, California is on fire. Just like two years ago, I've been in close proximity to a massive wildfire. PG&E has been doing these preventative power shutoffs through the month of October, so posting regularly has been challenging. The most recent of which left me with no electricity or internet for the last five days across two windstorms. Stressssss.

Anyway, will be posting again soon, but needing to decompress a little before getting back into the normal routine. Hope you're all well!

[MV] Slow Steady - After A Long Day

Mostly posting for the animation. Caught my eye because I think the dancer is rotoscope animated from a pro dancer performing variations from... Coppelia? Giselle? Seems like a combination of things. Cute.

[MONTHLY] Favorites for SEPTEMBER 2019

A little late this month due to a series of unfortunate utility-related events. Had a plumbing mess with a couple broken pipes and was also one of the lucky PG&E customers to be hit by the power outages due to the weather creating fire danger. No running water and then no electricity. Basically been camping at home for the last week. Yeehaw.

Some chill, de-stressing tracks at the top. Hoody, as usual, bringing the catchy R&B groove with some nice bass. Then Sunwoo JungA once again with my favorite track from her album, this exquisite near-acappella meditation with a touch of weird. Heaven.

In the full post: HWAJA, Jang Woohyuk/Babylon, CLC, Sonnet Son, TEEN TEEN, Dreamcatcher, TWICE, J-Hope/Becky G, AKMU, Lee Seung Hwan, Samuel Seo, and ONEUS.

[DEBUT] SuperM - Jopping

I have such mixed feelings about SuperM. The whole thing epitomizes everything about SM Ent. in one package, which I guess is good branding. Since SM has never been interested in building a grassroots fanbase from the ground up--even actively works against that--they are continuing to take the same shortcuts over and over again to push overseas. We won't put work into making easily accessible content to global fans, but we'll throw some of our most talented performers into one group to tap into their already-existing fanbases (ignoring the fact that we're making them angry for taking the guys away from activity in their own groups), over-produce the hell out of an MV, rendering it cheesy, and give them a song that is completely derivative of all the boy group songs we've released in the last five years.

There's nothing wrong with anything here. It's just so SM to do this.
It feels like such a calculated ploy and the over-the-top spectacle leaves me feeling cold.
They would have been better off going real simple with the MV with raw, steady, shots of these guys dancing. That's where the magic would be. Instead it's buried under CG and... vehicles.

[MV] TXT - The Dream Chapter: MAGIC

Love that TXT is doing super-elaborate trailers that are basically full MVs, just like BTS. This is totally mesmerizing. Highly recommend watching the whole thing.
