Oh, Kylie. How I love you.

I tried to stay cautious of the rumours over the new track being called Timebomb, but you've proven me wrong. And I couldn't be happier.

Three days - long live the Aphrodite!


How freaking good is TRAP? It's like the three eras of MEG (the beginning more "indie" era, NAKATA era and the new Parisian era) all in one. Fabulous, luxurious, amazing. Keep it up MEG and it's great to be able to love you again.

PS. Stay away from the Anime song covers.

University Life 2 - Pro at Procrastination.

Here I am on LiveJournal, rather than buckling down to get my research paper proposal finished.

The proposal's required length is one thousand words. I'm at 839. Should be a piece of cake. But still, here I am on LJ typing this.


I'll get back to it...

University Life - Part 1*

2012 is my final year as a University student. I'm currently doing the Honours program, a fifteen-thousand word thesis on my chosen topic. I could've graduated at the end of last year along with my friends and peers but chose not to. Why? Because I didn't feel like I was ready to start a 9-5, 5 days a week, 365 days a year job.

But have I made the right decision? I've fluctuated from wanting to just bite the bullet and get a job, to nervous and anxious, to being really exicted to start Honours. I'm currently smack bang back into the nervous and anxious feelings.

I'm wondering whether I'm capable of undertaking this research thesis and actually getting it done. The mind is strong but the flesh is weak.

I'm currently so overwhelmed with what I have to do - I just don't know whether I can do it.

I know I can, I know I can, I know I can... But, can I?

*I'm hoping to do a few of these "University Life" posts every now and then just to get my feelings out in the open.

Why After School are better than ever & why Shampoo is their best song.

It seems to me that it's popular to not like After School, to say that debut-era After School is the best incarnation. I disagree. As much as I really liked them then – they were a mess.

Kahi and Bekah were carrying the show. Jungah (as flawless as she looked) struggled being the only main vocalist. Juyeon and Soyoung couldn’t sing or dance very well – in fact, Soyoung was pretty much dead weight, useless to the group. Their songs bordered on cheap sounding. But they had one thing going for them, their cohesive “fierce as fuck” attitude and athletic ghetto-fabulous image.

Nothing was really working until Soyoung left, and Raina and Nana joined. With the addition of each girl, more and more of their original attitude was lost. But with each addition they’ve become a melting-pot of different girls and women with different background, likes, attitudes, styles and talents working together – a very Spice Girls interpretation of “Girl Power”. Along the way they lost some of the fire they had when they looked like a group of bratty hot girls. But what they turned into was even better, a group of powerful, sexy WOMEN.

Bang! was the closest they been to their debut image, but it was different.  The song, image and concept was more sophisticated, more polished, and more glamorous. Maybe that’s when everyone started to turn on them, gone was the rough around the edges.

It's all I wanna do, so won't you dance?

Over a year on, Aphrodite remains amazing. I arrived on this conclusion while singing along to every song out loud at the top of my lungs.
You talk, I walk, wanna feel the danger.

I never livejournal but I should...

And I will start to. Even though I'll just be talking to myself.
