Hip-Hop Saved My Life
October 23, 2008

Lupe Fiasco – Hip-Hop Saved My Life (Feat. Nikki Jean)

Tracks like “Paris, Tokyo” and “Superstar” had me avoiding Lupe’s music. But after giving his album, The Cool, a listen, I am glad to have found that he also does real music. There are a couple great tracks on the disc, including the one I posted above. Enjoy!

Jonas Brothers – Lovebug

Absolutely hate the JoBros, but I love Camilla Belle. That’s reason enough to post this video. Enjoy!

BoA debuts in America
September 10, 2008

BoA – Eat You Up [Preview]

Korean Japanese popstar, BoA, is attempting to break into the US music scene Akon-style (I can only assume that synthesizing her vocals is an attempt to mask her horrificly fobby English). And that blip of a song only serves as a harbinger for a disasterous career. In truth, she failed before she even begun.

Sidenote: Why does she keep insisting her name be spelled: Capital B-Lowercase O-Capital A? Maybe she and Bank of America can work out an endorsement.

“My Sassy Girl” Gets The Hollywood Do-over
April 3, 2008

Korea’s My Sassy Girl has to be one of the most charming romantic comedies I’ve seen and now it’s being remade in America Boooo!
I’m rather disappointed at Hollywood for attempting to remake it instead of just bringing it over with subtitles. But I’m even more disappointed with how the trailer looks. Elisha Cuthbert is no Ji-Hyun Jun. Cuthbert can’t pull off crazy like Jun did. She just can’t.

Well, let’s just prepare for the worst hope for the best.

A Simple Apology

Mark Gleim, Wisconsin art student, authors and illustrates one of the most random comic strips on the web. He’s hilarious most times, but some weeks the jokes leaves me thinking “huh?”. Check out Mark’s other strips at his website.

I also believe that the motherfucker in question is a guy by the name of Hillel (or at least that’s what Wikipedia says).

Run Away, Love

Ludacris – Runaway Love (Feat. Mary J. Blige)

I stumbled across this song as I was shuffling. It shows more mature side to Ludacris’s music. I’m really liking this song so here’s to hoping you do too. Enjoy!

My dear friend has just opened shop over at Etsy. The shop is the collaboration of two artists, Camille Villanueva and Vivian S. Chen, who are currently studying Art at UC Los Angeles. Their line of products currently consists of a handful of one-of-a-kind hand-cut cards. I expect that they will eventually diversify and carry other great products. Best wishes to them!
