It’s been a LONG time since I shared anything here xD… but this sure is memorable. It’s also been a long time since I paid any attention to MTV or the VMAs. I have no idea who was doing what where, but since Missy Elliott just dropped Iconology [YT], there wasn’t a better time to catch up with news.

In a decade of forgettable American/Western mainstream music, and an even more forgettable MTV music era, it’s hard to come up with a magical moment that marked this decade… but this could be IT. It’s not the best in the history of VMAs, but it could be very well the best performance VMA has offered this decade.

Missy was, after all, at the top during the peak MTV performance years. Bless her soul. And bless her love for baby girl Aaliyah.

I’m one of the very few people that actually enjoyed The Golden Compass, and I must admit that I’m always the skeptic, but this latest trailer for HBO-BBC’s His Dark Materials adaptation has raised my expectations. I’m never a fan of season series, but I’ll allow three for this, of course.

I’m a hyper-real animation skeptic, as well. But it certainly works best in mixed media than *coughliveactionremakescough*.

I hope there’s blood in the bear fight. That always irked me.

I haven’t been much of an active moomoo lately coz somebody gotta adult, but I got to watch Hwasa’s meaningful 2nd Win accompanied by her members, which was the most satisfying experience in probably all year watching Mamamoo go through their 4 Seasons 4 Colors project.

What a wonderful way to start promotion cycle for White Wind‘s title gogobebe, which I gotta admit have been replaying more in this M2 Relay Dance version, because it reminds me so much of their Girl Crush video mixed with their Dingo Music performance of Um Oh Ah Yeh. Bless these children.

Also, it may be historic seeing an active girl group member winning the day their group is making a comeback. Mam-moo only.

I’m shook. For some reason SBS Catch has just uploaded the September 2017 episode of Law of the Jungle (정글의 법칙) featuring GFriend’s Yerin. I wasn’t expecting to sit through the whole episode, but I was really impressed with Yerin’s survival skills.

I was even more surprised to see how she handled the Monitor lizard, killing it, skinning it, and preparing it. I can’t relate. LOL She reminded me of Savage Yejin on Family Outing.

Ah, good times.

Mad respect. Yerin, fighting! Yeoja Chingu, fighting! YeoMaChinMoo, fighting!

I’m about to finish watching Stories By Rabindranath Tagore, which has some episodes directed by Anurag Basu— an anthology of some of Tagore’s short stories. One of my favorite episodes has been Mrinal ki Chitthi (ep19), which stars Amrita Bagchi. I’m usually really good with faces that I see in other movies, but I honestly just vaguely remember her face in Phobia and Meri Pyaari Bindu. I must be getting old.

There’s a series of photos by Shivaji Storm Sen. This is my favorite, tho~
