You know, it’s really not good to want things but nevertheless that hasn’t stopped me yet so that said, I’m really excited because my mum, who I love dearly, is letting me order a cd of my choosing next week from online – the only problem is that there are a number of cds I want and I don’t know which one to get yet. So I’ve decided to do a short compilation here and see if it helps me decide. So here they are in no particular order:

So I was just puttering around Youtube watching random SHINee vids while waiting for my Family Outing episodes to load and I came across this NYSP+Amigo performance that I’d never seen before (I was shocked – I thought I saw almost all) And it was pretty good but the real reason that I enjoyed it was because they performed the Replay Boom Track Remix live and honestly, that’s not something they do too often. I’m sure they have performed it live before but I can’t really remember seeing that (except at ASF which doesn’t really count because the actual vocals were covered with the track in the broadcast anyway) so yeah, this is exciting! It was a really good performance – huge stage, intense dancing, pretty good vocals. The boys sound a little tired (it’s from November) but they pulled it off great, of course, despite everything. So I definitely recommend taking a watch if like me you haven’t seen it already. Take a gander below.
I remember posting awhile ago about how I didn’t like Key’s seemingly permanent comb-over hairstyle and I’ve noticed that they’re switching it up a bit these days and now voila!
All right, SM, I’ve decided to cut you guys some slack – I’m going to try to tone down the mental tirades I have about Key and the fact that I don’t particularly like the way you’ve cultivated his image in the group because I feel like you guys let there be too much focus on his ‘umma-ness’ (which I love, of course) and not enough on his individual talents because really, it’s not enough to just say ‘oh yeah! he can do everything – sing, dance and rap) but then not do as much to focus on each talent like you do with the others (and you know I’ve already got complaints about that). And I get that it’s partly because Key is multi-talented while the others really excel in one area why you put more focus on their individual talents than his but that doesn’t make it totally okay.
I’m not really a fan, to be honest, although surprisingly I find myself listening to a lot more of it these days – but of course, when I say ‘a lot’, I mean, in relation to the amount of trot I listened to before – which was virtually none. Honestly, it’s not that I dislike trot per se but other than the occasional song, it just doesn’t appeal to me. I keep feeling like it’s something my grandmother should be listening to and my grandmother and I aren’t exactly on the same page as far as music goes, you know. That said, despite my lack of interest in trot, I’ve been thinking lately and I figured maybe it wouldn’t be so bad if SM allowed Onew to sing a trot song as a single. Not a cover though, although that wouldn’t be so bad, but of course, an original song is always nice too.

You know, I’m starting to think maybe I should watch Infinity Challenge (if I can find it with subs) because these guys are looking more and more hilarious with each parody they make. I love it when people don’t take themselves too seriously and comedians are, of course, key examples of that. LOL, this video (which is obviously just a teaser) is just so many levels of disturbing and funny that I don’t even know what to say. Just watch and laugh as you cringe in horror. That’s what I did.
They also just aired their Kkot Boda Namja (Boys Before Flowers) parody but it’s still unsubbed so that one will have to wait for me to fully enjoy it. I do hope it gets subbed soon…hmm, what is this Infinity Challege show about anyway? Anyway, in the mean time, if you can’t get enough of these guys, check out their parody of Big Bang’s ‘Haru Haru‘ just in case you haven’t seen it yet. JaeSuk really stands out here as TOP. He’s something I tell you. Enjoy~
P.S: – Also I just had a good cry after watching Koizora so I’m really glad to have something funny to watch to take my mind off of it.
