    of course, it probably would've been a whole lot more "important" if it wasn't banned.

    k-pop has never had a song like that before as far as i know. and it's arguably the most important k-pop video/song this year (aside from Gangnam Style of course). It really challenges the idea of korean media's portrayal of women and the roles they have in k-pop. It also deals with double standards in regards to women vs. men and how they're perceived by people, as well as why Ga-In isn't necessarily being called a slut while HyunA is (though that definitely is because of the intentions behind making the vids/songs).

    I think I have a copy on the downstairs computer I can upload. If not I'm pretty sure jbrooks uploaded a zip of a bunch of old stuff on the egz tumblr over the summer sometime

    After I turned the computer off I realized that I was basically arguing against protecting embattled minority groups from being co-opted and taken over by majority groups which is not something I believe in.

    or maybe another way of putting that is that you're valuing the cultural norms and judgments over the individual's

    I'm not korean, ethnically or nationally, but I listen to and love kpop and feel that it enriches my life pretty appreciably. same thing with jpop. basically it seems like what you're saying is pretty close to "you can't/shouldn't appreciate art from people not in your direct realm of cultural experience and it is wrong if you do"

    But he WAS there just like that girl was. He listened to and loved spice girls back when they were popular just like she did. He's talked before about how he was a huge fan of the spice girls and sarah mclachlan and tori amos during his teenage years, which he described as the worst years of his life, and how they helped him overcome a lot of difficulties in his life. His experience is inherently different because he is male but does that make it inherently worse?

    That persons entire argument seems to be "you shouldn't sing this song because you're fat and male" except presented much more insultingly. That all strikes me as being pretty cut and dry sexist, and yeah, pretty offensive. And while he's the one who uses the word "invalid" she (I assume it's a she) is the one who implicitly brings that concept into the argument when she says stuff like "you and your little girl friends didn't pick which one you wanted to be. you did not learn the choreography at sleepovers." She's trying to claim ownership of the song basically, because she's a girl who loved the song when she was young. That doesn't seem valid in any way and using that belief to attack a guy for singing a song is silly at best.

    oh and i watched the bieber video, which made me start watching lil b videos on youtube, and made my roomates ask me "what is that!?" but not in a good way like "what is that? it's so based, i feel saved" but like "how do you like that?" one of them offered to play me an ACTUALLY good song lol

  • emarkovits

    show sounds pretty sweet! how old was the stuff? like k-dot stuff? cause i haven't listened to any of that stuff actually, have you? hopefully he'll be back in LA some time in the spring (should happen right?) and we'll be able to go. I also really love how your two TV references are NBC and Bravo as opposed to like NBC and HBO which is all I watch lol, the only other thing i can remember about workaholics is that one of the characters one time says "lets smoke weed about it" and that's always stuck with me

    octobre 2012
  • emarkovits

    i couldn't resist, dled the leak, and its awesome! but yeah i haven't been back to fox theatre since ratatat (such simpler days) but I burned at that show and the moochers were way worse than security. i don't know how i feel about workaholics, sometimes i watch it and they smoke and i'm like "im doing that too! :D this fun!" other times i think it's really dumb. Noz i think once called it stella for bros, which sorta makes sense to me. also good to hear that you're still a top-notch student! work is easy for me, and while i have been getting drunk a lot more i've sort of given up on the clubs, they're weird! and rarely fun

    no I run an ASUS but I'm sure it's the same - the DAC takes complete control and your volume buttons don't matter - it has the sound at a pure, unamplified level so that you hear no noise, totally bypassing the built in soundcard which is close to all sorts of electronic interference.

    octobre 2012
  • optimistic_tour

    and by all means listen to the new Bee Mask, I posted about it on my blog.

    octobre 2012
  • optimistic_tour

    Well I believe that a usb DAC does indeed lift sound processing from the computer. If your computer is so clogged it's skipping music that may not help - it still has to send the info to the usb - but it probably would. You could also try cleaning it out a bit, getting rid of background stuff running.. but really a DAC is so useful anyway, it's worth having one for now and for whatever computer you get next. Plus you can connect it to any audio source... I use mine with the ipod touch pretty often in fact, a mini hi-fi stereo!

    dude. i finished the larry sanders show. so fucking good. marc maron said "so fucking good" as i wrote that. i'm listening to his garry shandling interview. i started the series with indifference to that man and now i might consider him one of my favorite comedians. i cried a few times during the last season, amazing

    i've actually been playing it a bit on and off inbetween sessions of Borderlands 2, and it's pretty damn fun despite still being in the alpha phase of development. i kind of always expected a real Pokemon MMO but it's been so long that i figured it'd never come to fruition. any details? :O

    i got that video_ts folder of season 1 for the commentaries, haha. but i kinda feel like owning them, maybe later.... and i think the arrested development crew knew what they were doing. and dude! kid icarus is amazing. i'm glad i gave that to ya. that scene where he tries to leave the classroom to go watch smallville, i love it. that kind of guy is the reason i've dropped out of every film class i've tried at city. and it's also amazing to see how the small form films crew met cory, now he's starred in three of their films.

    I don't know about Danny, I guess I meant that more as a reflection on his other fans/rapper friends, I don't think there's anything about the music that would instantly turn you off, but I mean he's signed to Fools Gold so I thought that might be enough for you to write him off lol. I think this is the first noz has written for pfork, should be good for both of them, he could use bigger exposure and we've talked before about how woeful their hip-hop writing game is, but his first column was a little meh
