This is just hitting the right mood tonight. Discovered a couple of weeks back on the latest Xiami compilation– it’s called If I Lose my Youth (如果我失去了青春) by the band ZhaoZe (沼泽). Great thing they’re on Bandcamp too!
May you rest in peace.
Yes, I did. xD
This is the actual first time I’ve ever given my info to MAMA. LOL
The only blind-votes are for Best New Male Artist, Male Groups categories, and I wasn’t too in love with any of the MV nominees.
Do vote for HYUKOH, Bolbbalgan4, IU, Hyori, SNSD, Chungha, Zico and F.O elder YJS xD ^^
Also do vote for the dumb European MTV Awards and their buzz-grabbing international awards for Best Korean Act, on top votes for KOHH or Suiyoubi no Campanella for Best Japan Acts, and Henry Zuo  for Best Greater China Act. I thought I was old AF, and done with MTV and EMA stuff, but I guess not. LOL
And if EMA history serves me right, well~ and Henry Zuo passes to the next rounds. He’s gonna win it, just like Chris Lee did, just like BiBi and Jane Zhang. Coz, you know. China. LOL And I don’t wanna see y’all moaning.
Confession; I had been considering revoking my 24/7 moomoo status for a more casual one where I would just listen to the good music, but that doesn’t seem the case after Mamamoo’s Purple Party in Taiwan this weekend. LOL They won’t let me.
I had been considering it because, though my music consumption has gone up, I need to increase my movie consumption. I also need to find the time to exercise once again, which I could easily do while watching movies, but can’t while watching Mamamoo fancams. LOL You’re watching fancams for a reason, you can’t NOT watch them without missing details. They also seem to be doing well financially to the point that they can afford brand stuff that I can’t or would be willing to afford xD
However, after the Taiwan event with fans and listening (then watching) Solar be so moved, asking whether she deserves all this love, it seems unlikely in the near future that I’d be soft ‘drop’ them. I also wanna give a shout out to the Mamamoo Taiwan MooMoo Union because- JOB WELL DONE, you guys~ teaching the fanchants, and doing the event, feeding the staff and even the journalists. You guys did amazing, pushing the bar for fans to behave and show their idols all your love~ You guys make me want to be a better Moomoo.
Also, the Taiwan MC. Super fun. Repeat after teacher. xD
And last, but not least, streamers. What would we do without you, guys.
I started listening to Chen Weilun (陈伟伦)’s album, Think Miss Sorrow (念思愁), which just came out last week. While adding it to my iTunes library, it struck me how difficult it was to translate the song names. xD
For those who don’t know because you’ve just stumble upon this post, I usually keep a very organized library of foreign music, which includes ‘Original Name (romanization) – English Name/Translation’; so I was looking if there were official English titles for the songs on Chen Weilun’s album available on Xiami, KKBox or iNDIEVOX. There were not. On my search, already on title #3, I realized they were all titles (or most are, I haven’t gone through all of them yet xDDDDD) for Li Qingzhao (李清照), who is known as the greatest Chinese female poet of the Song Dynasty, mostly for her ci (词)/lyrics form of poetry .
So this is going to be a (hopefully brief) project to translate just the song names xDDDDDDDD
I only got three so far. xD

I just finished watching Wukong, and was dazzled by Ni Ni and had many feels. You know I’m a sucker for these supernatural doomed romances. So I was catching up on news and stumbled upon the fact that Ni Ni and Chen Kun are gonna be on a historical drama together. Seems like there’s tons of Chinese actors heading back to TV for dramas, but have you seen the gorgeous – and I mean GORGEOUS – stills for The Rise of Phoenixes (凰权·弈天下)?
It’s so f*cking good-looking, yo! I may have tears in my eyes.
