Dante: the silence of the blessed spirits

Generous will–in which is manifest always the love that breathes toward righteousness, as in contorted will is greediness– imposing silence on that gentle lyre, brought quiet to the consecrated chords that Heaven’s right hand slackens and draws taut. Can souls who prompted me to pray to them, by falling silent all in unison, be deaf […]

A Pink April: “The Blue Bird” on Inkigayo (20180325)

Well if the second week Inkigayo stage for “The Blue Bird” isn’t pretty, what is?   As lovely as the first week’s dense flora were, this more abstract, discodelic staging with its abstract flights of lone flowers and feathers might actually come off as a bit more grown-up.  The sheeny pink costumes are lovely, and […]

Happy Birthday Irene!

Red Velvet’s eldest member Looks like a slice of heaven So it comes as some surprise Today she’s twenty-seven.   Happy Birthday Irene!  Stay young and moody!  Hwaiting!

Is the Parkland Shooting Hoax a Counter-Hoax? Is David Hogg Secretly Working for Trump?

The thought finally occurred to me this morning: Boss David Hogg and skinhead diarrhea lesbian Emma Gonzalez are so over the top, so counterproductive, so openly lying and making themselves ridiculous, that Parkland could be a Counter-Sandy Hook created by the Constitutional Loyalists inside the government deliberately to expose all the Leftist Conspiracy fake shootings. […]

Styxhexenhammer: “The media sticks its dick in people’s heads”

I’m confident that Pres. Trump’s diplomatic expulsions convey no real animosity towards Russia or its leadership, and that Pres. Putin understands.  After all, the cruise missiles in Syria fell mostly on empty sand.  Still, as Styx points out, it was great fun when Trump could publicly upbraid McCainiac and Princess Grahamnesty for their WWIII-mongering. Then […]

Back When Girl’s Day Was In Command

Ah, 2013, when Girl’s Day and A Pink were competing to see who would be next Nation’s Girl Group.  Or so I billed it.  Well, in 2014 they were practically sharing that billing weren’t they?  Now, I know better how fleeting such power can be (what was GFriend in 2016 if not a Nation’s Girl […]

WJSN “Dreams Come True” stage mix

  Seola and the gang doing their ‘thang’! (Excuse the ungoddessy demotic rhyme!)

Trump is a Genius

Lionel Nation isn’t off the Trump Train:

Yuju, a Queen of the Night

Yerin actually performed The Magic Flute on a gondola in Venice, but here Yuju channels (in a benevolent sort of way) Mozart’s iconic villainess back in GFriend’s 2016 year of miracles:  

Sujeong looked really cute in this one

but what did the commenter mean about “bad camerawork”?

F**k the March for Our Lies

Satanic traitor Boss David Hogg and his SJW teenybopper army will burn in Hell.

The Elite Hunger for WWIII: comments by Horzabky

A Derbyshire commenter writes: The Trump tragedy is a very bad omen indeed. It means that there won’t be any significant change in policy unless the system actually collapses. Which in my humble opinion it will do, worldwide, somewhere between 2020 and 2030. Our national leaders are decadent, but they are not stupid. They know […]

Ann Coulter on the Omnibus Bill

I’m not in despair right now– but this is a maddening and depressing day.  This is not the first time the President has punted/caved on corrupt and gargantuan spending bills, and while there is a bit of a chess move defense that it’s better for the midterms to have this fight in six months than […]

Yes People, Momoland is still Still STILL promoting “BBoom Bboom”: it’s the JooE Greatpocalypse and it will never stop!!

Even if I didn’t hear JooE’s Fangirl screaming for this.  But yes, this is the March 23rd Music Bank, and here is Momoland, Nancy’s fetching headwear and JooE’s blonde enthusiasm and all, performing once again their megahit “Bboom Bboom”. On a count of three: . . .1 . . 2. . 3 GRAAAAAAATTTTEEE!!!!!

JooE’s Fangirl is strong with this one

GREEAAAATTTT!!!!

WJSN Dawon adds a floral garland to the best stage outfits ever!

  WJSN’s glowingly girlish-maternal Dawon (still shy of her 21st birthday) caps off her Romanov/Royal Mountie military parade outfit with a floral wreath for her wise sweet head.  Truly, I wonder if God is signaling that one or more dynasties are about to reascend their thrones.  K-pop for The Reaction, baby! Trust! in WJSN style!  […]

Happy Birthday Boram!

An “official” birthday salutation to the immortal Jeon Boram on her thirty-second birthday!  Happy Birthday Boram!! And it’s still her birthday in Korea’s time zone too! Boram has been very quiet in social and other media lately, so we have no new photos to present of her, but doubtless she is still startlingly radiant and […]

Happy Birthday (in Korea), Boram!

The “fake madnae of all fake maknaes” turns a babyish thirty-two years old!   Well, it had to happen someday.  Whether or not T-ara reforms in China, and whether or not Boram takes back to the stage with it, she will always remain a beloved legend in the history of music and a precious part […]

For a bloviating, washed-up former intel chief, John Brennan seems strangely indifferent to the many dicks Obama’s received, or the one Samantha Power keeps handy at all times

Samantha Power, who was U.S. ambassador to the United Nations under former President Barack Obama, warned President Trump on Saturday that it was “not a good idea to piss off John Brennan” after the former CIA director told him in a tweet that America would “triumph over you.” The American people would like to tell […]

April’s “Blue Bird” Show! Music Core Comeback Stage, with remarks from legendary commenter May Be

You could hardly ask for prettier LCD backdrops, with their splendorous children’s book colorfulness and detail.  And waifu Chaewon and the gang are visions in their own right as they spin through their latest melancholy e.one musical soufflé. Meanwhile, legendary Laboum and April youtube fan May Be offers these remarks worth pondering and sharing: Some […]

The One Year Anniversary of A Pink’s “Bye Bye”

It was one year ago today when A Pink released this Shinsadong Tiger produced J-pop masterpiece and its gorgeous rococo music video. Of course we here recognize “Only One” as a classic pop song and the ballad duet trilogy of the Dear album as an artistic highpoint.  Still, those works did not reach the mass […]

Nicholas Freaking Sarkozy is under freaking arrest, and damn this feels freaking good

K!ke former Europeror Nicholas Sarkozy is under arrest for taking million of euros in bribes from Quaddafi–whom Sarkozy later started a freaking war against, apparently all as a goddamn hit to keep his bribe-taking from coming to light. A nation destroyed, open air slave markets returned, an American Ambassador tortured and killed, shenanigans with ISIS, […]

Happy Birthday Kei!

The mainest of Lovelyz Main Vocals turns twenty-three! This famous goddess is growing up so fast, but still is sweetly young and has much left to share with us.   And may OnePiece soon return in glory to deliver Kei and all Lovelyz another exquisite hit!   But time and the charts can never fade […]

Autocracy in the RK: WJSN’s military chic gets promoted to 11

WJSN’s third week Inkigayo outfits take their military school ambience to new heights as the girls show off their promotions (third medals have been applied!) on bloodred regal coats. Korea cries out for tsardom, and its martial virtues will take Asia to soaring new heights of patriotism, classicism, and ethnosupremacy! The “Dreams May Come” outfits […]

The Greatest A Pink Ballad Never Recorded by A Pink

would be one way to consider GFriend’s magisterial Snowflake ballad “Trust”, performed in part for their Music Bank Comeback, in acoustic arrangement for Inkigayo, on M! Countdown and, I believe, on Show Champion–and certainly here on Show! Music Core: Accompanied by yet another resplendent discodelic cinematic panoply of pastel purples and glistening whites.

Oh My Girl’s “Secret Garden” on a Windy Night Outdoors (and oh yes, there are some important comebacks on the way!)

My heart is broken over the sudden and inexplicable shoahing of M! Countdown’s 3rd week broadcast of “Secret Garden”–gone.  This savage twist of fate has truly broken my heart, as I had become of late fanatically devoted to that particular performance, even above the 3rd week Inkigayo or the 1st and 2nd week Music Banks.  […]

Momoland is Still Still promoting “Bboom Bboom”?? Great! GREAAAATT!

Well, apparently this time really is the last hurrah, but I had no idea that there was going to be yet another one this late: And what is sweet JooE wearing?!  Some sort of leather skort with the skirt part unbuttoned?  Oh well, it’s still GREEEAATT!!

April’s Rachel’s Rhythmic Gymnastics

April’s latest e.one produced comeback is upon us, which should be cause for commentary in its own right.  I like the song, I like the video, and I expect I’ll love the stages, but since I haven’t listened to the album yet and I’m still in the midst of WJSN “Dreams Come True” mania and […]

Explaining how mass casualty crisis theatre works: the Parkland Shooting Hoax and Beyond

Sofia Smallstorm and friends have an almost-two hour discussion that kept me absorbed every second.  A fantastic in-depth examination of the likely mechanics of fake shooting events, funding, logistics, recruitment, media play, legal cover, the carrots and sticks used to control troubled particpants after the fact, hierarchies of planning and knowledge, and the strategies they […]

“She’s safe!”: Classic Crisis Actor Theatre with the Hubbards

Such was our awe of Oh My Girl: “Secret Garden” Paradise on M! Countdown

Each beauteous flow’r, Iris all hues, roses, and jessamin, Reared high their flourished heads between, and wrought Mosaic.  Underfoot the violet, Crocus, and hyacinth, with rich inlay Broidered the ground, more colored than with stone Of costliest emblem.  Other creature here, Bird, beast, insect, or worm, durst enter none, Such was their awe of man. […]

Jordan Peterson: “That’s what the bloody Marxists always say”

JP on feminism’s Marxist ambition to destroy civilization:

2nd Week Inkigayo Stage for WJSN’s “Dreams Come True”

WJSN’s martial splendor continues to shine with comet-like luminescence on today’s Inkigayo: We need to give a special notice this era for Soobin, who has really come into focus with her moody, melting visuals on stage, full of romantic fervor.  If we have been guilty of neglecting her before, we cannot fail to notice her […]

Hayoung’s smile at 3:41ff

You’ve watch it a million times: but if you didn’t know to look for it, would you know it’s even there? Of all six members, it’s the look that’s least on script with making a music video, and yet the most aware of the sheer magic of what it is they are at that very […]

The closeup on JooE at the end is like kissing her!

Cute heart choker and all!

Yuju’s black eyes shine even if the mics whine: “Love Whisper” on Inkigayo

Someone’s mics were catching too much of someone’s breathing–or maybe GFriend’s intense choreo just raises too much wind!– but what I assume are stage contacts (but forgive me, Goddess Yuju, if thy own eyes be so shiny) in Yuju’s orbs light up this already refulgent “Love Whisper” stage:   In key respects, this broadcast stage […]

Did Elisa Lam really exist?

In the summer of 2013 (the same weekend Dal Shabet came back with “Be Ambitious”, to be exact) I became obsessed with the Elisa Lam mystery.  It absorbed me like a real life David Lynch film, and those who remember their first experiences with Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me and Lost Highway and Mulholland […]

“The Godfather Part III”: Still Vastly Underrated

On youtube, some twat in his review video asks why Michael is “always smiling.”  Because, dumbass, he’s trying desperately to be likeable, to be like his fantasy image of his father.  Vito of course was not always smiling but Michael wants to be liked so he overcompensates.  He is faking it till he makes it, […]

Seven Months Since GFriend’s “Love Whisper” Inkigayo Comeback Stage

I consider it a classic, even if no one else does, but I think some people agree with me.  Seven months perhaps is not so long, but still, it was magic when “Love Whisper” came out, and still it is magical today.

WJSN’s “Dreams Come True” Comes Alive on Inkigayo

For those on the fence about the WJSN Comeback, this stellar performance could be what tips them over the edge and out into the stars: Plus a luminous screencap presence for Xuan Yi alongside Cheng Xiao!
