Archives For why the 90’s ruled

I’m not crying, you are.

Did you get to see Faye Wong and Na Ying’s CCTV Spring Festival Gala collaboration? It’s been 20 years since it happened, and this year’s Years (岁月) was probably the most popular segment [like Tang Weiwei’s two years ago]. I do wonder why CCTV hasn’t uploaded the performance on its own (yet).

As far as I know, it’s only available for high quality download on QQ (though, geoblocked), unless… you know, you do your thing.

And now, someone was awesome enough to provide English translations~

Bless them~

Thank You, Solar-ssi~

I just wanted to drop a note thanking Solar for releasing Solar Gamsung on tape (yes, I was one of the lucky ones to get it on first order), because that pushed me to clean up the cassette deck I had at home (yes, I’m the old person who still has a cassette player on hand).

Honestly, I thought my deck was busted, I remember testing it a while back and it stopped working. Today, I cleaned it up with alcohol; and though the automatic open/close is faulty as heck and the rewind/fwd doesn’t always work, it plays stuff. And today I listened to my dad’s voice in years. So thank you, Solar-ssi, for making me cry tonight.

My dad used to have a Karaoke bar in the 90s, and ever the music fan and Karaoke-owner, he liked to sing and record himself singing. LOL So now I have 42min. of him singing an array of 14 songs. He was, obviously, a very VERY big Miguel Bose fan. Though, honestly, I had never heard my dad singing (the Spanish version of) I Will Follow You xD Now I’ve finally transferred his tapes on mp3 to keep :) added him to my iTunes library, album cover and all~

Los Doltons’ version of El Ultimo Beso will always be a good memory of him.

So I finally read the official translation of Chapter 91 of What Does the Fox Say, and I’m still a f*cking mess when I read it. It wasn’t as bad as when I read the fan-translated version a week early, when I literally ugly-cried for seven pages straight.

– Goodbye.
– I love you.

Gets me hard.

Biases, biases everywhere!

I don’t really follow Chae Ri-na, but even she’s super hilarious too! And, damn~ I missed Kahi. And damn~ Narsha the instigator. Damn, Hyori’s variety skills [1][2][3]. Damn, my Family Outing heart. I’ve had so many feels with Hyori’s Comeback -especially Black [MV] with subbed lyrics- and her Comeback Stage at Show Champion. And the crowning of IU, and the looking at the Mamamoo kids.

I had a wild week~

*Cries in Moo Tears*

I’m so old (∩︵∩) I’ve had so many feels while watching this 40min. interview of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer cast for Entertainment Weekly (and People? — are these two under the same company now? I’m out of the loop), I’m even considering re-watching a couple of episodes, despite the fact that re-watching things seem to be a luxury of time now.

I’ve always been a huge BtVS fan throughout my high school years— she went off to college while I was still in high school, and the show finished the year I went to Vancouver for studies. Most of the last season, I saw through bad quality downloads from a peer-to-peer program that no longer exists. LOL My first big salary, I spent on buying the seven seasons on DVD on one buy. Some people spend their first salaries on shoes, others on food— other kids are really good and help pay off their parents debts or give their first paychecks to their parents. I didn’t. I bought 7-seasons worth of DVDs. lol

So I have feelings.

Watch it here.
