Photo Challenge – Smile

31 May

When looking for things that make me smile, I wanted to search all over.  Maybe I could go out and find something that makes me smile and snap a photo of it.  Well, I’m on a limited time budget… okay, not really… but I don’t have a car (at least directly).  Anyway, I figured I’d scour google images for what I needed.

I’ve always enjoyed little kids having fun with nature as long as they’re not being ruthless… like when they tear the legs off grasshoppers and feed the whole bug to their Chinese Water Dragon (this is exactly what I did as a child).  So, I came up with this simple image:

There’s an immense joy at seeing animals bend towards your will.  Particularly when it’s an animal that can be annoying as fuck.  So, chasing pigeons can be a great release.  This image reminds me of all those times I chased birds.  It was awesome.  You should go do it (again) some time.  It’s riveting.

Song Challenge – A Song That Makes Me Laugh

13 May

I’m just going to give you a few key points about “Twerk” by Lady before letting you jump into the (age-restricted) video.  First, ponytail.  Second, Lady does the least amount of dancing but talks about twerking it all the time.  The most she twerks is when she’s in white lace and sways her butt back and forth.  Third, the video raises all sorts of questions over the sexualization of the media, the representations of women, the representations of blackness, and how the male gaze operates despite being furthered by women.

That aside, watch it and use your best judgment.  It’s just way too overwhelming to see… so, it’s great to laugh about how ridiculous it is.  Many guys get a lot out of women moving their bootys all over the place with cash involved.  Plus, I didn’t know that butt cheeks could high five each other so well.  I’ll include the lyrics (highlighting key points) if you don’t want to watch the video (you do! you do!).

Song Challenge – Song to Dance to

6 Apr

Let’s make this clear: I have a 12 hour dance playlist.

I like to dance.  But, most of these songs are not your typical dance songs.  Still, they are awesome.

Basically, anything that makes me bubbly and happy with a catchy beat is an automatic dance song.  But, my dance mix includes slow songs, songs that you can take breaks during, and just pure badassedness.

Here’s a list of some songs from this playlist:

  • Beatific – Glass Candy
  • Where it’s At – Beck
  • Bring Back Pluto – Aesop Rock
  • Dust Me Off – Tilly and the Wall
  • Do the Whirlwind – Architecture in Helsinki
  • Hold On – Hot Chip
  • Parenthesis – The BLOW
  • Cherry Blossom Girl – Air
  • Uh – Fujiya & Miyagi
  • Be My Baby – Al Green
  • Dancing Shoes – Arctic Monkeys
  • Kick Drum Heart – The Avett Brothers
  • Everyone Gets a Star – Albert Hammond Jr.

OH! And a bunch of Of Montreal…

And so forth.

Secret Pleasures #18: Kpop and Kdrama

25 Jun

Let’s just begin with the statement that Korean culture is pretty damn cool.  At least the South Korean culture.  Most specifically I love kpop and kdrama.


Do you like wild, crazy, and cutesy?  This is the epitome of Kpop: Korean Popular music.  It’s colorful and catchy.  *If you need a quick overview of Kpop check out eatyourkimchi.com*

Plus, if you’re attracted to Koreans (or Asians in general) Kpop collects the most attractive singers.  They usually sing in large groups so you’ve got your options for looks and personality.

If you’re intimidated by foreign languages, don’t worry too much.  Kpop loves to insert english lyrics into really random places within a song.

Also, do you remember all those great 90’s boy band dances?  Everyone was super unified and perfectly in time.  Well, Kpop dances are like that but to the extreme!  Watch this music video and then the stage performance of Bbiribbom Bberibbom by Co-ed.

I don’t know very much Korean but you can bet I’ve got Kpop songs stuck in my head.

Korean dramas are pretty much exactly like soap operas or telenovelas.  It’s super sappy and the story line is pretty unrealistic.  However, this also means they’re incredibly addicting; everyone loves drama.

Here are some general guidelines for designing a kdrama:

1. Arranged marriage

2. Overbearing father (Korea is a patriarchal society which can be pretty frustrating if you’re as pro-women rights as I am)

3. Controlling grandmother

4. Cross dressing or mistaking a women as a man

5. Inheriting gobs of money (but most of the time you can’t access it unless you get married)

6. Discovering you’re really from a royal family

7.  And the most common:  love triangles or love squares or love pentagons … it goes on and on

One of the Kdramas I recently watched is called Creating Destiny.  Overall it was mediocre, but the thing I loved most was that the Korean lead actress spoke far better English than the ‘American.’  The producers were pretty detailed about everything except that – it was pretty funny.

In general, Korean popular culture is amusing and addicting!  It’s colorful, dramatic, and full of attractive actors/singers.

My Secret Pleasure: Korea! and their wacky pop culture.

A New Batch of Letters

18 Oct

So, the letter senders are back on with some more fun for me.  I’ve decided that I’m not too interested in finding out who these people are at least until I graduate from college.  I know there’s four of them and one of them knows me a bit more than the other three.  I just love getting letters from them and not knowing who they are.  It really gives me a huge smile whenever I receive a new letter.  Of course… then I get lazy and forget to take photos of them and the letter senders lose hope in my bragging capabilities.  I mean, really, I get a new letter and the first person I see (who I know) gets to see it and listen to my grandiose stories of receiving letters from near strangers.  It’s grand.

Now, with this new batch of letters, I’m pretty dumbfounded.  I frankly have no idea where these phrases are from, and for the first one, I’m disappointed because it’s from a comic (my specialty) and I still don’t know where it’s from.  So, if you want to help, you can right click the images and choose “view image” which will increase the size of the photo nearly twofold allowing you to see the phrases in greater detail.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do:

That’s a happy birthday card from them.  Definitely the best card I’ve received in awhile.

And here’s an adorable photo of Sabretooth (who you can add on facebook under Sabretooth Sawyer, now):
