kerpingtack: startling blue lake with cliffs idk what's in the water looks like sushi (cutaway)
I meant to post this like a week ago but uh I didn't. Also I'm trying to do this on my phone lol there's some stuff that's tedious to add so please anticipate a shit ton of vacous edits later~

I liked these things:

Dancing Queen audition

Kang Minkyung (Davichi)
타타타 (Ta Ta Ta) I really like this
사랑 사랑 사랑 (Love Love Love) this was surprising and really so good (w/ the interview at the beginning)

Ali
얄미운 사람 (Hateful Person) she is a great performer, whoa. also 'hateful' is not the exact word but it's hard to translate according to my mom lol
새벽비 (Early Rain) when she performs it really feels like she's doing exactly what she was born to do. great great voice, great confidence, great everything
킬리민자로의 표범 (Kilimanjaro Leopard)

Hyorin (Sistar)
edit: 비 내리는 영동교 (Rain on Youngdong Bridge) this is more or less a straight cover, but it's different from both what we've heard from her and what we've seen on the show in general, and she sounds really lovely [edit: my mom said it was the name of a bridge lol]
edit마음이 고와여지 (The Heart Must Be Good Too?) 

I haven't watched IMS2 since Jonghyun left (my attention span is super short and I am biased as fuck) so the only thing I'd watched of the show since then was 2PM's Junsu's Wait a Minute and Sistar's Hyorin's Miniskirt, both of which I liked a lot. I feel like the women really make this show. Also the contestants have really been scaled up. The very first set were are pretty young and were all definitely idols. The batch on the latest episodes have generally been older, soloists, and just a lot more mature and experienced. It's great to watch. (I think the hosts have gotten more annoying though. I hate when they edit cuts of them saying stupid obnoxious shit in the middle of a performance with the laugh track and everything. :|) It's made me realize how fun it is when the competition is really good, like when the skill level is comparable so what really makes a difference is the energy and emotion and creativity.

They really gave up on the 'proving idols can sing' concept, right? Because the idols they do have on are not quite uhhh the logical choices. It's kind of a waste because idols are so controlled and you don't get to see them making a lot of creative decisions. And I think being in a pool with people a lot better can be helpful and inspiring, as long as it's not hopelessly overwhelming.

And um everything is SHINee: omg I'm really nervous for Taemin. The current cast outclasses him, and the majority of all idols, by so much. He's going to look sf hapless just like all the reaction shots they keep putting in of Infinite's Woohyun looking worried and/or dumbfounded all the time lol.

The other thing that's really nice about the show is that you can hear that these older songs are actually very well-written. LOL backhanded compliment~? idk I get headaches when I listen to some of the originals because they just sound sf dated lol and the instrumentals are too loud and it's annoying. But these clean good interpretations are legit refreshing. They're good songs! 

blah blah )

My sister just pointed out that maybe Jonghyun should be romanized as Jonghyeon, just like in those old posts from when SHINee first debuted and no one knew the official English spelling!! noooooooooooooo!!! It's because his name has ㅕ in it (종현), like Taeyeon (태연) and Hyoyeon (효연). If it were Jonghyun with the "u", it would be ㅜ/ㅠ ("oo") like in Yunho (윤호)?? So, like... Jonghyoon (종휸)? LOL ;~; Maybe the rule is different when there's a consonant (ㅇ doesn't really count; it's like an empty placeholder sound), because Seohyun (서현) and like, ramyun (라면) are also spelled with "u" ("hyun"/"myun"). Plus sometimes ㅜ/ㅠ will be written as "oo" instead of "u" like in Yoona (윤아) even though I guess it should technically be Yun-ah? (As a sidenote, 'Kim Yuna' should seriously be spelled Yeon-ah (연아).) But Onew (온유) isn't spelled Onyu or Onyoo. omg romanization rules are so confusing. Maybe for names, they just go by aesthetics. That seems to be the most logical answer, lol.

Okay while I have the language bar set to Korean~ girl!Onew's name is not really Eunsook (은숙), it should be Onsook (온숙) because they kept the first part of all their first names, or a close approximation in Key's case. Similarly, Junghee (정희) should be Jonghee (종희). The other three names are correct though. (~quick proof of the Korean spelling~)

Now I'm googling Korean romanization rules. Such wonders and progress I make in my life! ?__?

I'm so tired. I dropped my brother off at his friend's birthday party, about 20-30 minutes away today. My throat still hurts a lot. x__x

unkind thoughts: more and more I think that in kpop ficdom, a lot of people just write original fic and attach kpop names to it to get readership. they are legit just "writing exercises"'; so little thought or insight goes into the story and characterization.

also a dude doesn't have to find women or their bodies REPULSIVE just because he's attracted to another man. so fucking tired of reading about guys being ~disgusted~ when a girl flirts with them or touches them or whatever. It just comes across as internalized misogyny, or some other form of self-hate (going on the fact that most people in fandom are female).

ALSO can hipsters and all the associated insincere, irresponsible, pretentious bullshit leave this planet asap? ("Hipsters, can you kindly please get the fuck out of my house?")

going thru oiam archives and fucking crycat at the very first picture she took of jjong.

LOL OKAY SO THIS PICSPAM WAS STARTED IN JUNE OF 2008 AND I'VE ALWAYS BEEN BOTHERED THAT I NEVER FINISHED IT. THREE YEARS AFTER I STARTED IT + ALMOST 2 YEARS AFTER THEY SPLIT UP IS THE BEST TIME OF COURSE.

I have no idea what my thought processes were when I was putting this spam together. I didn't have any non-disco pixx to share and care, but I spent a long time copy-pasting those fronds.

I don't know how to start this.

this was perhaps not the wisest time of day to do this spam )

I feel really accomplished now! I have finally finished this THREE YEAR old spam. And oh man, making this post brought back so many more memories than I thought it would. I really loved these tragic weird white boys. <3__<3 Thanks for everything, disco. It was fun~

I am some kind of poster child for POOR TIME MANAGEMENT and LOW IMPULSE CONTROL. Watching so many SHINee videos on youtube, just so many. ;________; I LOVE JONGHYUN SO FUCKING MUCH. I smile at everything he does even the awkward embarrassing shit. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE. Embarrassing stuff usually just makes me embarrassed. LIKE THAT VIDEO OF HIM BAWLING. I usually cringe so badly at stuff like that. But I've rewatched that video like twelve times. Because. He is the most precious thing. And I love him. ;______;

I'm going to be 22 soon and I have no idea how to react to it! 22 is a nothing age. It means that I'm going to be a twentysomething and that's about it. No more cultural cues for what I'm supposed to be doing!

Something was tickling the side of my face while I walking to the library this morning and I was like "goddamn I need a haircut" and brushed it out of my way. BUT IT WAS A SPIDER. WTF. WHY. I am now paranoid that every sensation is another spider. (Heey "Every Sensation is Another Spider" could be a great indie douchebag band song title.) How did it get on my face?! 

UGH and another albino cricket thing showed in our room. Where the fuck are these bugs coming from. It scared the hell out of me because somebody put baby in a corner I sit really close against the wall and the cricket was crawling up it right next to me. I had to ask my cousin to deal with it. If it was on the ground I would've anvil-dropped my sister's biology textbook on it like I did with Albino Cricket Thing the First but it was on the wall and ughhh IT JUMPS noooooooo.

I finally finished this dumb playlist for myself. I started it TWO YEARS ago, no joke. It's not even some huge epic playlist, it's only twenty songs and the order is all fucked up because I have no sense of flow. Why am I so bad at these things?? How do I manage to procrastinate on shit I don't even need to do? I will share with Theoretical Internet Audience anyway.

I can't tell if I'm improving or whatever. I don't want to run myself over with a truck which is a good sign. I wish I could stop obsessing about my appearance. I know I'm fine, I am perfectly okay.

Relatedly, I was rereading old entries. Wowwwww I sound really really dumb in some of them. For the future!me who is self-obsessively rereading this: I know I sound really really dumb in this entry too.

It is annoying when someone hits you in the head with their backpack. It is also annoying when the people on either side of you talk to each other over you during a lecture. What is wrong with people, do they actually need to be told NOT to do that? It is also annoying when people walk slowly and make it impossible to pass them. I have wished so many times that I could just put my foot on their back and push. Especially on the stairs.

I love Romeo+Juliette. I can't even see how I can not like it. I AM COMPLETELY OFF THE DEEP END NOW. Jonghyun sounds so fucking good in it. Instant spiritual boner. (omg he's younger than me. Emotionally I feel like 16 years old, tops, so I don't feel that ~wrong~ about watching gifs 100x more than necessary, but it is WEIRD. He was born in 1990!! WHAT IS THAT ABOUT. Also my intro soash discussion is full of first years and we were discussing a reading on the OJ Simpson case and they were all like, "I was only four when that trial happened!" and ugh why are people so young?? Seriously, how can something born in the 1990s be a fully-grown person??) God his voice is so good. 

Pointless comparison that is only relevant to me: SHINee AND DISCO. Jonghyun and bden. Umm I don't have anything to say about this. My SHINee thing just reminds me of my disco thing and I relistened to pretty much all the disco on my iPod. kpop just works so fucking differently from anything in the US music industry.

LOL HE'S SO LOUD AND DUMB AND AMUSING IN HELLO BABY. EVERYTHING'S SO EMBARRASSING ON THIS SHOW. I LOVE HIM.
