Enough said, and we don’t get a broadcast…

The UK Music Video Awards just made their announcement in London… !! *excitement!!*

The Video of the Year was… Bjork with Wanderlust! – I said it could easily be THE best video of the year… – Bjork also won Best Art Direction, and Best Indie/Alternative Video.

Nominees and winners were more up to my likings… which makes me wonder? WTH is wrong on this side of the world?? I’m talking about America as a continent… O_o

For the list of winners, go here. And here are some of my faves…

  • Badly Drawn Boy
  • The Ting Tings
  • Klaxons
  • KT Tunstall
  • CSS
  • Nine Black Alps
  • Mark Ronson
  • Kate Nash
  • Sigur Ros

etc… xD

Rejoice! After a few years absent from the music scene (at least mine…), Korean musician Seo Taiji (서태지) is back with a new single… and and new album, of course! Oh yeah, and a new video… ;)

I remember that my friend Jenny, back in DD school… she sent me Seo Taiji mp3s (See! Thank Kamisama for mp3 transfers), and I was instantly hooked. I was surprised to know that my other Korean friend was also a fan, because these two friends couldn’t be more different xD Anyway, Just about a year ago, I ended up buying his 7th album Issues, which is now out-of-stock in YesAsia.

I don’t know when the full new album will be out, but I’ll keep my ear open. xD Gosh, so many releases now~~ Luckily, Amy does not buy Singles~~~ I’ve only bought EPs, but not Singles, not yet. xD

Okay… did any of you ended up thinking this was missing something? For sure, and improvement from last year.

  • “Thriller” by Michael Jackson was the first ever Music Video-Turned Short Film.
  • The first ever Music Video I remember watching is “Remember the Time” by Michael Jackson – another short film/music vid!
