Randoms

Well it's saturday afternoon and tomorrow I have to wake up at 6 am to go to the lake with hyung and the gang. It's great we are gonna spend all day and night out there just drinking and cooking and swimming...it's gonna be awesome! I can't wait. It's so wonderful that I have real friends that are Korean. I feel so sorry for all the westerners who only waddle around here making other ex-pat friends. What losers!!! I know like 3 of them read this blog so I'm telling you now "loser" go out and live and stop eating pizza and going to Nowon with the other fat pasty people. Anyway these are some randoms as I update my website and listen to launch.com and play a little bit of spades. I'm taking it easy tonight because last night I got so hemmed up on soju I did some stuff that wasn't cool and realized that rediculous show-off manly drinking is for the less living!


  • Jeannie's Diary-Eels This song kicks hard nipples! I love it because it so captures the whole blog diary experience.
  • These songs are making me happy

    1. There There : Radiohead (I have no idea how exposed everyone back home is to this Radiohead album...probably a lot but you know what that's why being here is cool...I don't have to care what's popular I can just like stuff that I like)
    2. Everybody Hurts : R.E.M. (This song is great and is the only REM song I like besides What's the frequency Kenneth...? It's so badly early 90's and it's so sad and stupid that it just rules!"Now it's time to sing along...hold on hold on" oh that's just awful...hahaha!)
    3. Where Did It All Go Wrong? : Oasis (Yeah they often aren't good...but I wouldn't lie to you...this is damn good! especially if you can find the acoustic version...but if you have the album version turn it up...light a cig...twiddle your foot and enjoy)
    4. Acquiesce : Oasis (Hey I'll put two in a row...you know why? Because this song kicks!)
    5. Guy Who Got A Headache And Accidently Saved the World - The Flaming Lips (Just the title alone is...well you know what it is because you are smiling at it)
    6. Cool It Down : The Velvet Underground (Just a kick butt CD...Lou Reed should have died long ago and then you would all know about them...because Nico goin just wasn't enough to push them over the ledge)
    7. World Of Shit : Eels (Yeah yeah Yeah...it's so Eels!)
    8. More Than Us : Travis (slow, sad, big changes, and running water...all the components of a great song)
    9. Rock & Roll : The Velvet Underground (You know when the smart aliens come and decide to decipher all our slang and they see "rock n roll" their first discovery or investigation might be this song and at that moment I will be so proud of our race as we dance in the salt mines)
    10. Pink Moon : Nick Drake (Oh yeah...this is weird and I love it...Nick Drake is so coming on the list soon...his voice is like a milkshake!)
    11. The Boy With The Arab Strap : Belle And Sebastian (the song is fucking amazing...but the title is even better...I've been hearing about a band called Arab Strap...if you don't know what it is...check it)
    12. Old Man : Neil Young (You know this guy Neil Young. I mean he's kinda new to the scene and a little hairy but I think he's gonna be a keeper. Where are the Neil Young daps! I think Tim had one a while ago...dude you know what...you should pay attention to what other artists are listening to)
    13. Break On Through : The Doors (When everyone else was a wuss, Jim Morrison was insane and he partied man and he lived the hotness...it's just his band that's really lame)
    14. Smooth Criminal : Alien Ant Farm (Played out or whatever...a nice make over to a solid tune)
    15. Die, All Right! : The Hives (Hives start me up boy)
    16. The Ocean : Led Zeppelin (hmmm..I never realy attribute Zep with having great titles...and this isnt one of them...but they do have some cool titles)
    17. Sultans Of Swing : Dire Straits (there's no denying the love)
    18. A Dead Song : The Birthday Party (Holy crap this is insane but so oddly good)

  • These songs are making me angry

    1. Offend In Every Way : The White Stripes (damn you Tim...now some of it sounds all bad...but it's still good...this is bad though)
    2. True Faith : New Order (Holy crap...what is this...how did this get in here...holy hell it's bad...that's it..I can't think of something that cross dressers with wells in their basement and who own poodles listen more to...)
    3. Krazy : Tupac Shakur (This isn't that bad but it's the clean version...that's like eating diet peanut butter...ugh!)
    4. Big Machine : Goo Goo Dolls (Someone tell these guys that "Singles" isn't in the movie theatre anymore)
    5. Good Riddance (Time Of Your Life) : Green Day (Nope nope nope nope...it's bad)
    6. Goodbye To You : Michelle Branch (Do people listen to this trash...someone get Dolly or Tammy on the phone so they can coucil this damn thing.."Deep down in seewwwlllll"...jesus...shoot her)
    7. Down On The Corner : Creedence Clearwater Revival (If John Fogerty died I would throw a huge party)
    8. Self Esteem : The Offspring (They just seem really lame...can I get a second)
    9. Minor Thing : Red Hot Chili Peppers (Yeah yeah yeah...they are hitting rock bottom...I've been waiting so long for them to be so bad that no one can deny it)
    10. Sick Cycle Carousel : Lifehouse (Oh Boy...wow...I picture a pretty girl and slow motion and a beach and poetry being rained on in the video)
    11. Don't Dream It's Over (Radio Edit) : Sixpence None The Richer (Hey now hey now hey now...someone coooooollleer recorded this a long time ago...write your own shit)
    12. Dead Man, Dead Man : Bob Dylan (I'm sorry bob but when you start sounding like the bob with dreads I start hating you)
    13. S.P.A.T. : Badly Drawn Boy (Not one of his finer moments)
    14. She Loves Me Not : Papa Roach (Holy crap I can't stop laughing)
    15. Take It Easy : Eagles (First off this is a Jackson Borwne and second the Flying Burrito Brothers gave it to them and third Don Henly and John Fogerty should be on a plane together when it smashes head first into the ocean)
    16. Blue And Yellow : The Used (whiney guys from utah...great...)

  • It's so friggin creepy when people look at porn on your computer or on a computer next to you...if they are a guy...
  • I'm out...maybe no blog tomorrow
