My Twin Brother from another Mother


Apparently, he found my blog I MISS JAN. Since he doesn't know that I made a public service announcement on FB (he doesn't have one) he didn't know that a lot of humans actually replied to my post. ^..^

Oh well. I can't find that post now so never mind. ^..^
It's weird that I had this Pinaywriter spidey sense to check on my emails or phone when an important message is there. Kekeke. I have been busy lately that I have been ignoring my emails constantly.

I am glad he found me. I already gave him all of my sns and cp info. ^..^ And people did look for him. He's just a ninja. Or I am just bad at googling people. I mean seriously I studied skip tracing. But I am so forgetful I don't know anything to use to search for him.

Apparently he's well and he's going to be working in a company. ^..^
I told him I am a fatass now. And all that. I am still waiting for his reply. And I will keep begging him to get a FB account together.

Seriously, how much do you have to hate Mark Z?

I wanna show him the pictures my Korean Student sent me of her trip to Google. ^..^

And this concludes the search for my Gemini Kambal. If only I can find a version of him I can rape and who also likes KPOP. We are like siblings and he my oppa from a different eomma. <3

Yatta~

Si Sandara Park at the 2NE1+8th Bday ko

Si Sandara Park trended worldwide without even a need for a hashtag.
2ne1 is coming this week. Dara will be in Gandang Gabi Vice and will visit Kuya at the PBB house.

Prior to the announcement some haters of Sandara as well as some bitter fans using the sly excuse "We pay to see her the housemates have no right to see her for free" card using the #saynotodaraonPBB hashtag and trended it. I personally made sure I unfriended the ones that I saw use this hashtag on FB. Unfortunately I was not able to catch all those who used this on my twitter account. I was busy at work so I wasn't able to catch their shit.

It's a big slap for those who trended that they didn't want her to go in. It's already well-known that Dara has a soft spot for the Philippines. She'll all but a Filipina by blood. She talks about the country as her second home. She put the country in YG's radar after getting noticed in a feature made for her. And that's been the start.

Now coming back for the continuation of THE Party for an even bigger NOLJA event, Dara remains the Krungkrung we love but just a tad bit more than that. She's gotten love, hate, support and training in love, life and in the Entertainment world. She came back with her sisters from another mother Chaerin Lee (the other half of CHAERA a one true pairing for the two women who are super close, Bom Park SsangPark/Double Park's other Park and Minzy, 2ne1's beloved eromaknae.





I for one can't wait to see her onstage. I won't be going to the hotel, airport or the mall tour. I am not a fansite noona/eonnie. I will be there in the VIP Standing screaming my heart out. I will call go POPPED on some people and let them call me when the concert is ongoing so they can listen to a song. ^.^ But that is if I can get a power bank. If not then I won't. T_T; 

Nevertheless, this MAY is epic. I won a WIN Epilogue from Kenny AKM YG Fanboys are <3
It's still in Pasig Central Post office. I haven't picked it up because I haven't had a free weekend. I am planning to go there on the May 18th after AON. So stay tuned for that. I already got the poster for the giveaway. *weird that they sent me that and not the dvd* anyway.

This is going to be my last month as a 28 year old and will also mark my last year as a woman in her 20's. And having all this much feels for my birthday month has been unbelievably great.

Also I found my bestie. He saw my I MISS JAN blog entry and he emailed me today. I can email him now. yey~ I should memorize his email. He still doesn't want to make a FB account. Tsss. Anyway. I hope I can contact him more often from now on. So happy for this May. <3

I will try to blog more that I have hooked up my kpop gmail to this blog. So forgive me if I KPOP all over your feeds.

Best. May of my life. EVER.

#PrayForSouthKorea

There are no words I can write that would be enough to show how sad this news is. I hope that the survivors will be fine. I hope that the media is not covering anything up. I hope that the missing passengers got out and will get rescued.

Please. Kpop fan or not. Kdrama fan or hater, it is our human obligation to offer at least one prayer for those who are there, those who are lost and those who have moved on to the Lord's welcoming arms.

Always there are heroes to be told. And there is a young man who was supposed to be enjoying his birthday in Jeju Island with his classmates to have a memory he would cherish for a lifetime. Instead he is dead. But the lives he saved would live on for him, would carry his bravery for him and tell the world, each and every person they encounter, that there was once a class president unlike any other, a chingu who was brave and would have made an upstanding member of society had it not be for April 15, 2014.

My deepest condolences and my prayers goes out to the people affected and the nation awashed in grief.
I hope politicians use this time to make their party seem better than the current administration's because people are definitely going to eat them alive if they did.

Second Life taking over

So I made a kpop spazz account. It's currently in RP mode for RapMonster. Originally I was going to use it to RP Seunghyun Choi's assassin character from IRIS. But I got lazy so I used it as Pinaywriter Choi instead. Now It's Namjoonie Saranghe. If you don't know who he is, don't bother. You are probably in my Pinaywriter Simone Simon account. And you are not a kpop fan. So I have ALMOST cleared out my original account of the KPOP people. Some are still there, the people who I want to see my IG post and those who I can't remove or transfer over because for the life of me, I don't know if they are from my second life in KPOP or they are part of my writing group.

On that note. I have been remiss on my job as the EIC. Again. *insert excuses here* But the spazzing on my RP account is not to be used as a sample that I have a lot of time on my hand. I don't. I usually have it open so I can scoop people out from my second life to work for my current company.

About that. I am now officially the Group leader for Team Mojo-jojo. Yes. Of course my team has the villain name. Because I am such an evil person. Kekeke. I have 5 people under my supervision. May the gods have mercy on their souls. So far so good. But it's an adjustment because I have two modes, DGAF mode and OCD mode. So imagine the adjustment my team would have to experience.

I know I should check my other facebook account more often. Before I know it more weddings would pass me by and more babies would be missed to coo at.

But I am happy I am able to compartmentalize now. I can unleash my crazy spazz self on one and I can keep my nonkpop friends away from my craziness.

But I am still writing. Unfortunately, it's work books. So yeah.
I still prefer this that doing something I am not good at and not happy about. It's not work if you enjoy what you are doing.

So on that note. I think I should blog more. Since life is not so boring these days.

Though the wildest thing I have done these days is have a Buin (wifey) on my roleplayer Facebook account.
People really think I am a guy. Seriously. T_T

Anyway. It's fun so I will leave it as is.

I still need to buy a gift for the TOP photo winner since the book I bought turned out to have a part 3. Killmenao. I hope I find balance soon.

But definitely as of April 3, my creativity is definitely being redirected to work and kpop. I just need to make sure I balance it out and include TOP and fiction writing again.

Oh and I have 4k emails on my pinaywriter gmail. Fick me.

BLACKJACKS ARE HOME

2NE1 known as force that does it's best to reinvent itself calls to their fans to start a revolution against the accepted Virtual Paradise in their latest music video.

A lot awaited comeback has burst forth with a new stage for 2ne1 who just finished the second day of their All or Nothing WORLD tour.

Blackjacks, as their fans are called, have been trolled by YGE CEO, Yang Hyun Suk so many times that fans are not sure when the MVs for COME BACK HOME, as well as the promised three other MVs (another 1 for Come Back Home, 1 for Gotta Be You and 1 for Happy) would come out.

But after a few days of delay, and perhaps some media play on the part of the CEOs, the comeback was pulled off, two concert dates are behind them, a crazy after party was staged and they have managed to deliver two MVs for their fans to feast on.





Dates for the next concert stops have been set and fans all around the world are either anticipating purchasing their tickets or hoping their blackjack counterparts would be nice enough to post as many fancams as they can risk to post.

CRUSH has hit roofs of major charts and their songs competed with each other to take #1. They have managed to get into not only the POP charts but the MAIN charts internationally making them in the league of digital queens Sistar, who was the only other Korean female group that was able to do that thus far.

The details of the album success is everywhere and that is not what I am really going to blog about.

Since I can't do a reaction video (I do not want to subject you guys to my mug) I would make a reaction blog.


++++

The MATRIX is one of those very few movies that made me come out of the house and want to look around for deja vu. So seeing that the concept of virtual reality being placed in this MV brought back memories of this beloved movie. Then there is that movie Surrogates where everyone lived in their homes and they lived in their "perfect" version in the real world. The sci-fi concept was spot on.

Fierce as they are, 2ne1 presented themselves as a group of rebels against what has become a norm in a world full of fake realities.

Dara's beloved is trapped in a virtual life where he is happy with her and there is no misery and she frees him from it even if it cost him his life.

Minzy and Bom prepare the bomb that would destroy the institution that made the so called paradise. CL is their fearless leader of course. What else would she be?

I can understand why the graphics took a while to make. This MV took a while to make, graphics-wise. At the very least it didn't look like it was rushed at all. The fact is, if a person like me who edits videos with normal programs can IDENTIFY what kind of edits were done on your idol's MV. Then it means it was done haphazardly. Because the whole point is to be able to distract us from that.

The song itself is a strong one and the music video  just proved that 2ne1 is back and ready to break all the parameters set up for a female group. This is a music video that even nonKPOP fans would understand and LIKE.

I have mentioned before that I am a fan of MVs with a story and this was definitely one of those.

YG, I forgive you for trolling us for so long.

+++++

The show SEX and the CITY was something that I loved for years. I still do. And the fact that there are four members of 2ne1 just leaves me with giddy feels.

Dara is the Charlotte of the group. CL is Samantha, in her fierce fashion and blondness. Bom is Carrie and Minzy is Miranda. Their group doesn't need to act to look like they get along. I am sure that the making video would show NGs because they were just having way too much fun to pay attention.

I love how fresh this video is. And the fact that it was done a couple of years ago is just uncanny. Because their beauty has not faded since. They are even more beautiful now. I think LOVE has something to do with it.

The fact that four independent women (Minzy just became of age this year) are in such a colorful video, with Jeremy Scott, no less, made me happy.

Happy kinda of reminded me of a CF for a communication app like Line and Kakao beacause of the graphics. But it was cute without trying too hard.

+++++




In the end it's all about the fans and it's all about the music. So views or no views, haters or no haters, I am happy YG didn't troll us this time around.

HERE YOU GO!~ NOLJA!!!

P.S. I had so much feels I had to write them down. So feel free to read up on my 2ne1 shorts in AFF. 

Let me know what you think of the videos, okay?
I am curious if you liked it or not. No need to control yourself. Feel free to bash. <3

Here is Kenny's reaction video. <3

YG EXPLAINS WHY VIRTUAL WORLD GETS DESTROYED IN 2NE1′S “COME BACK HOME” MV....

“The MV of “COME BACK HOME” is set in a near-future city, and the concept is that people in this era prefer the virtual world over the real one, just like the movie ‘Matrix’.”

“These days when people meet they look into the screens of their phones instead of having a conversation, which shows an addiction to cell phones and games. I think this behavior demonstrates that people like the virtual world. Even at playgrounds kids play with cell phones, and this will worsen in the future and people will be more enthusiastic about the virtual world than the real one.”

He continued, “In the MV of ‘COME BACK HOME,’ DARA is heartbroken by a man she is in love with, as he prefers the virtual world. For these reasons, the four members of 2NE1, DARA, CL, BOM and MINZY enter the virtual world themselves and turn into warriors to destroy that world. Through this, we tried to convey the message of how important the real world is, and about the human touch.”

He also explained why he leaned toward a music drama rather than a MV filled with choreographic scenes.

He said, “2NE1’s MVs were mainly choreographic ones until now, so we wanted to try something new. We wanted to invest our time and money in the computer graphic work, which ended up in a 500 million won budget.”

“Love Does Not Hurt” Bloggers Night


I got a message from a friend about a Bloggers Night event that I wanted to share with my blogger friends since the last time I checked almost all of them are mommies now (and/or daddies). And I think they would get a real kick attending something like this. I have ooohhhhed and ahhhhed at baby pictures and infanticipated with most of them so I am sure they would get a kick from learning more about parenting.

As for me? I don't have a kid yet but I grew up believing that Love Does Not Hurt either. Bless my grandfather for making corporal punishment illegal in my family. ^..^

But in a time when the internet and technology can expose children to a lot of things too soon, how do you raise your children without spoiling them and leaving the rod behind?

*Darn it, now I am curious*

So if you are too, please contact them and get more details that YOU would need. (I have met my mom and when she wants to do something she squeezes all the info she can get from the organizer before she commits to something)

I dunno if it's a BYOB (bring your own baby) kind of event, you'd have to ask Rash about that.

All Or Nothing for 2ne1

For a Blackjack that felt like it's been AeONs since the last time we heard something new from our empresses, the past few weeks have been an overwhelming time. Unsure of whether or not I can afford to go to this anniversary concert in the Philippines, I just hope that things would work out and I would be there, to chant, to sing and to dance. I was not there during the first party because I was not able to afford it and I didn't know any YGstans, Blackjacks and VIPs during that time. But this time around, I would definitely burn more for 2ne1 than I did for Big Bang. I wish to come back to the times before Big Bang went here and save like there is no tomorrow. But it would be true this time that my love for Sandara Park (I started as a hidden Krungkrung fan) will shine brighter than my lust for Seunghyun Choi.

In 2013 and early 2014, I dipped into the craziness that mixed my second life into my first life. So I decided to move all kpop friends into a different account. So I can spazz in peace and then revert back to my nonkpop self (still an otaku and my quotable quotes self) to check up on my blogger friends, offline friends, old classmates and clear up the one's who I do not speak to at all, not even on Facebook.

I wish that things could get compartmentalized as easily. And that there are not a lot of things that would be lost when the dust settles.

For now, I urge Daralings and 2ne1 fans to help us vote. ^..^ *click on pictures to get to the voting page*





Go on a YT MV watchathon





And remember #ComeBackHomeBlackjacks


How to 2ne1fangirl right 

1. Go on a Good Vibes MV watching marathon on YT.
2. Write fanfic moments about OTPs. (if not a writer : Read fanfic moments about my OTPs) 
3. Use bashers as villains in fanfics. (if not a writer : Replace bashers as villains in fanfics) 
4. Rant on my private group so as not to instigate anymore shit with shitheads. 
5. Post multifandom things on my wall that are positive. 
6. Yoga breathing when I read grammar errors. (Correct own typos in one's own posts except for rant posts.)
7. If time permits, make positive memes that are not sarcastic. 
8. Talk to ELFs and Cassies so as to reassure oneself that there are truly mature fans of kpop out there. Spazz over SUJU and DBSK accordingly. ‪#‎oldschoolfeels‬
9. If time permits, check out news about my own country as to remind myself I am not Korean and I have my own country and its music industry to support. 
10. BACKread on so-called fanwar threads and munch on my KPOPcorn judging everyone and their arguments accordingly. 
11. Post one or two long posts with my own opinion and then move on to more positive spazzing. 
12. Remind my dongsaengs that our empresses won't like interfandom and innerfandom hate. 
13. Watch funny videos of my ladies. ‪#‎paGV‬
14. Chat with friends on this side of the fandom and the other side to see how REAL life is like for them. Because being fangirls together is one thing. But what we take from this spazzing are some unusual friends we would have never met had it not been for 4 fab ladies and a Troll CEO. 
15. Remind myself that I still don't have money for my AON ticket. 
16. Pray that I can find money for all the merchs I want. 
17. Pray that someday I meet a fanboy of 2ne1 and we can fall in spazzlove together and we can go to concerts, save money by doing tipid dates whilst thinking that our major date should be a 2ne1 concert or our honeymoon would be going to Korea and going all kpopcouple crazy over there so much that Koreans would squirm when they see us. 
18. Help dongsaengs with homework (basta wag math nyeta).‪#‎becauseBJsSTUDYevenwhenwespazz‬
19. Converting nonkpop friends to the 2ne1fandom fold.
20. Praying that kids would grow up and earn their own money so they can realize that merchs are not bought by their own steam but by their parents own money. So they should remember to show that their parents raised them well by being good people, offline and online. 
21. ‪#‎Comebackhomeblackjacks‬ campaign

Please share, repost and tell our dongsaengs and friends that we care for them. Spread the blackjacklove.
