Aah…Something Inspiring…

too many activities in a short period may inhibit the productivity of a man…such as blogging…well, okay, i should’ve done something with my Final Assignment, but hey, beauty productivity is in the eye of the beholder blogger…or at least it’s so last time i know it…

my day today was not actually boring…but i know i really need some inspirations…and i guess i’m getting some from random surfing today…and yes, it’s internet surfing, i haven’t tried wave surfing before as i’m still practicing on my skate boarding (but that also gotta wait for a free board from my brother)…

ah, crap…my friend gotta go…i have to sign out before he unplugged the LAN cable that connect me to the inter

SNSD’s “Oh!” MV Finally Out… (UPDATED! + download links)

yeah…again to fellow SoNEs…REJOICE…after we are made curious about the MV since most of us SoNEs must’ve heard the mp3 of “Oh!”, they finally released the MV for this song…just see it in YouTube…

i haven’t seen it full yet, i just became so excited i decided to put it in my blog first…enjoy the MV guys, and girls…btw, for those who want to listen to the mp3, just check the download section below…

Download SNSD “Oh!” mp3:
–> MediaFire

-EDIT-
now, that i’ve seen it full…i’ll make some review…the concept is IMO a mixture of Gee and Genie, that is mixing cuteness and sexyness…why, because their expressions in the MV are just cute, and the outfit does support the cuteness while in the same time, giving of a sexy aura of a cheerleader…the mistake Jessica made at 1:20-1:22 (which i thought was an unintended when i saw it in the teaser) is actually cute and makes me laugh a bit…being a Sooyoung fan, i always look for her in all scene, hoping for her popping out on screen…and when she does come on screen, i pause the MV and take some time rolling on my bed…she is SUPER CUTE and her wink at 2:54 basically blows me away…i always think that short-haired Sooyoung is cuter, but this MV really blows that mind away…enough for the Sooyoung biased review, sorry…as for Seohyun, she is the exact opposite of Sooyoung in here, not that she is not cute, but as Sooyoung seems more innocent in this MV, Seohyun looks more mature, as in less pure, not that it’s bad tho…another scene that made me laugh is at 2:00, and it’s involving Jessica again, her expression there is such a dork, a cute dork, which you would all want to be her boyfriend…well, err, i would be noting one drawback of this MV, i don’t see any “signature move” in the dance, which is present in all SNSD’s MVs before, but that’s maybe because i haven’t seen the dance shot version (if there’s any)…the good point, sorry, i mean the UBER good point of this MV is in the ending…what’s with it? i would be guessing that this MV will be continued with another MV…an MV with “darker” feeling to it…and hell yeah, i’ll be waiting for it…

Finally, Noraebox-ing…

yeah! a few days ago,I finally went to Bandung Indah Plaza to look for the karaoke box that my friend, Ramskid, talked about in his blogpost…I went there with him and another friend, Sre from Environmental Engineering ITB…our appointment to do this was actually very accidental, with me tweeting them in the morning, asking when will we go karaoke…and suddenly we agreed to meet in BIP at five…I was late for 15 minutes, but I don’t think that dropped our mood…

when I arrive at the karaoke place, I was kinda surprised…I’ve seen the pictures from Ramskid’s blog, but it isn’t too clear to describe the place…I then took some pictures that I hope would help to describe the place…

as we got there, the first we did was choosing the songs we will sing in the box…it costs IDR 2500 per song, as written on one of the box…after we decided the songs, we then paid the cost and the clerk/receptionist in that place sent us to our box…she then inserted coins to the machine and put the codes for our songs…

we sang quite some songs that day, but since the subtitle is hangul (YES! it’s in hangul, too bad for us who can’t read hangul) I only sang to the chorus of some songs…but of course I didn’t come unprepared…since I plan to sing (the reason why I went to karaoke place, not to bowling alley…I like to bowl tho, but that’s different story, heheh), I already printed the romaji lyrics of some songs…so in the end, I sang two songs I wanted to sing the most: 2AM’s Confession of A Friend and Kim Taewoo’s Love Rain, if you want to listen to the songs (not me singing), you can download it in the download section below…and I do think I sang it very well…even my friend said that I’m ready to audition for SM or replace 2PM’s Jay (now don’t go netizen-ish on me guys)…hahahahaha…

lastly, we posed after we were too tired to continue singing and decided to finish our session…here’s the pose…thanks for the clerk/receptionist for taking this pic and a few others that made me so embarrassed I won’t post ’em here…

Ramsky, me, and Sre doing “the pose”

it was the pose from one of the song we sang…if you are a K-Pop lover just like me, you would’ve known what song we sang so that we posed that way… xD

if you plan to go there after reading my post (or because of any random reason I wouldn’t have known) take some of my advice:
1. Party of Three, if you want to be comfy enough inside…you can have 4 people inside, but that’s pushing it, plus you can’t dance to the song like we did…
2. Prepare The Lyrics, unless you can read hangul fast like two of my friends there, just print the romaji lyrics…or you’ll end up grabbing the mike and only sing when it’s chorus…of course you can memorize the lyrics beforehand, but that’s too much hassle for me…
3. Know The Code, no, not your safebox code, tho I might be interested in it…I mean the songs’ code you gonna be singing, because some of the new songs are there, but they haven’t put it in the song list…

happy noraebox-ing y’all… ^_^

SNSD 2nd Album ‘Oh!’ is Teaser OUT!!

I got one word to all SoNEs out there for today: REJOICE!! yes, REJOICE, because our savior from SNSD’s single thirst has come…well, it’s only a teaser, but still, I know we are all waiting for the next big thing from SNSD after their latest mini-album Genie…

if you want to watch the teaser (which I assume you’d answer ‘YES!’ if you were a SoNE, or even ‘I have watched it already of course’ if you were a hardcore SoNE), I embed one teaser from YouTube…here you go…

as you can see their outfit there is similar, if not the same, to the promotional poster of their 1st Asia Tour Concert – Into The New World…and the concept is not far, if not actually equal, from what implied in that poster, which was “cheerleading”…

SNSD 1st Asia Concert Tour Promotional Poster

that image is built even stronger from the teaser since The Nine also wears blue cheerleader outfit…the outfit is, in my opinion, HAWT!! not the kind of hot vibe Sena Ayanami gives off, but a hot aura that makes you giggle like a boy who got his first toy from a pretty girlfriend…what? you’re not giggling in that situation? nah, you giggle deep down inside, ADMIT IT! heheheh…

anyway, that’s that…how do you think of it? the teaser of course, not the giggling over the toy…

My New Collections…

as you may know from a few posts before…I’ve changed my alignment from J-Pop to K-Pop…and just like before, when I get to like something VERY MUCH, I would then start to collect stuffs of them…and since my most favourite in K-Pop is the-nine-and-only SNSD a.k.a Girls’ Generation, I just bought almost all of their CDs available…

the first SNSD item I’ve ever bought is their 2nd Mini Album, titled Genie…

I ordered it circa August 2009, but some problems occurred that I only got the item in mid-October…but hey, I got no complaints at all…you know why? because I got this item only for IDR 95.000, that’s like less than one US dollar…and I’m still waiting for the bonus poster right now…

back when I ordered this item, I’m still not that avid fan of ’em…I just thought, “Hey, I like the Tell Me Your Wish MV, so why not?”…apparently, after only a few weeks exposing myself to their antics in other MVs and variety shows, the last statement of “why not?” changed into “why not all?”…

and starting from that very statement, I then collected money (yeah, it’s all ’bout the money) to complete my SNSD discography…being in luck, one of my friend, Ardhito, was going to have 2009 Christmas vacation in South Korea…so in the spur of the moment, I gathered all my available money and transferred it to him…and what I got then was a great New Year presents…

yes, I got two additions to my collection…the 1st Mini Album (Gee) and Baby Baby (Repackaged)…of course I still yet to have the 1st Album and the 1st Single…which I should’ve got if not because of rip-off money exchanger that traded KRW 1 for IDR 10.5, at that time Bank Indonesia’s rate was KRW 1 for IDR 8.2…but once again, I got no complaints…OKAY, I lied, I still hold a wee little grudge on the money exchange thingie…but (again with the “but), once again (again with the “once again”), I still feel content, because after all I got the two items above for cheaper price compared to if I ordered it via online shop like YesAsia…

btw, according to this news at Soshified…SNSD will release their new full album titled ‘Oh!’ on the 28th (of January, I presume)…better start making money again… *looks around for things to sell*

AVATAR!! Indonesian version…

Avatar Poster

hurray for Indonesian people…the highly creative people from LUNARfilm and TPI proudly present new TV series…titled “Petualangan Bersama Suku Biru”, the new TV series is promised to be a hit since the storyline is so original that it was copied by James Cameron, which then made the epic motion picture Avatar…while everybody says otherwise about this fact, I, for one, believe that what I just wrote above is true…

NOT!

if you haven’t realized it already, I wrote the passage before “NOT!” in cynical way…don’t even ask me why…okay, ask me…(someone curious: “Why?”)…because I am so disappointed in the people in our television industries…they never thought of something new, something that would be a break-through…(someone curious: “Really?”)…well, not really, some of the people behind the scene, are creative…remember the reality show pioneer “Katakan Cinta” ? it was a break-through…no random confession from random people was interesting before that show…and then the show’s rival, “H2C”…no random scandalous stalking was thrilling before the show…and then there’s this Indonesian archipelago expedition shows, which was an eye-opener to the beauty and culture of Indonesia…(someone skeptic: “See? There ARE creative people!)…yes, but apparently we don’t have enough…I should mind you then how reality shows and expedition shows underwent Algal Blooming after the success of the genre’s pioneers…because of one thing, UNCREATIVITY…rather than trying to outdo their rival TV station, almost all copy the concept…(someone uncreative from TV industry: “I don’t think we’ve ever copied Katakan Cinta concept!”)…GET THE BIG PICTURE! you guys working in there, BE CREATIVE…don’t be THAT afraid on making new program which is ORIGINAL, the concept don’t have to be original, but please make the content original…

and no, I don’t blame all to the TV people…they just make the shows according to the market, which is us, the viewers…well, unfortunately, most of Indonesians still enjoy this wow-that’s-good-in-gaining-viewer-share-let’s-copy-it show…(someone who loves to watch the wow-that’s-good-in-gaining-viewer-share-let’s-copy-it show: “Now you’re blaming me Mister?”)…of course not…if your reason to watch ’em is to laugh mocking the show…if the reason is to enjoy the show, then my answer is short, YES! why would you watch something that would only stupefy you…

btw, TV people…I got my trust in you since almost all of you is Indonesian…just don’t hurt my trust, and I believe a lot of other Indonesians, in this…sorry if I’m such an ass in this…but for those who understand Indonesian, check the synopsis, as well as some images, in the link below…maybe you got a glimpse of what I’m feeling…
