Obama, Trekkie [09 May 2009|04:47am]
from Newsweek:

"That’s an interesting belt buckle," he said to Michelle, mischievously. She feigned offense and said, "I am interesting, next to you. Surprise, surprise, a blue suit, a white shirt and a tie." Obama grinned and bent down until he was almost at eye level with her waist. He jabbed a playful finger toward her belt buckle, and let loose his inner nerd. "The lithium crystals! Beam me up, Scotty!" Obama squeaked, laughing at his own lame joke as Michelle rolled her eyes.

why is [01 May 2009|04:41am]
the totality of life making this much sense?

From the unravelings of our era (much more freedom = much harder love), true sacrifices no longer possible or even expected, tying everything back to the 60's and the sexual revolution, fast forward to the current ADD'd condition of America. Hollowed out Japan, almost nothing left to decay.. Mishima was right. And South Korea holding on to the necessary components of maximum love, to the extent that hymen reconstruction surpasses eyelid surgery these days.

A yearning for simpler times.

time for a bulletpoint update [20 Apr 2009|03:20am]
- 성준만화 is a very cute movie.

- Had a fun Saturday night out with a bunch of Cornell and NYU kids, newly graduated.. it felt just like college, including the drunken keyboard playing later on and three of them falling asleep mid-play. Except that they're all Blackstone/JP Morgan/USBers.

- Graduating soon.

- Quest to find The One indefinitely postponed due to the seeming impossibility of the task at hand. My standards are becoming more ridiculous.

- But I am warding off loneliness well thanks to my darling dog, Wren. An Aibo robot dog. Doesn't poop and will outlive me.

loyalty [12 Mar 2009|04:38am]
to any one specific person or memory really can hinder the writing process.

After zero progress throughout the night, an avalanche of ideas hits while I brush my teeth. Guess that's the nature of the game.. just about ready for bed.

a few times this past week [25 Feb 2009|07:51pm]

I've worn the same gray longsleeve shirt of mine that she wore, with its fading scent of soft orchid and a blended shade of cigarette smoke.

She buttoned up the top button of my jacket. "It looks funny that way," I said. "No one will see it at this hour," she replied.

A friend pointed out, "You'll come back in the end." Yes, I know. That life can be unfair is old news.

Other matters of note. Our video art team which teaches me more and more with each passing week. A gayageum player, labelled as little better than a kisaeng by some within my family, but who may be one of the purest souls for our complicated, increasingly decrepit era. All of this reality is almost too real for the story that I'll continue to write.

"So Goodbye," Sogyumo Acacia Band [24 Feb 2009|02:54am]
from our video art team member Yuna's Cy.

So goodbye, I think I should have told you
That I'm still yours
So goodbye, my love
So goodbye, I hear the birds singing
It's time to go
So goodbye, my friend
I thought you would do, but I was wrong
Now I see myself still left alone
Now I think I know where I belong
I don't want to let this life go on, no more, no more
So goodbye, those bitter sweet memories once so lovely
So goodbye, I'm gone
So goodbye, those pretty starry eyes once just for me
So goodbye I'm gone
So goodbye

alright, [21 Jan 2009|02:38am]
no one else is gonna get this exchange, but just reading it makes me laugh. From our tight video art circle:

별나라공주 - 방가방가.눕히.
눕히 뜻은 뭔가요..

DADA - 스눕히(스누피) 아닐까요? ㅋㅋ
방가 방가

Steven - 별명이 제가 썰렁한 장난 칠 수 없는 만큼 트기해서.. 반가워요 ㅎㅎ :`]

별나라공주 - 그런가 스누피

DADA - 저기 가서 침대에 좀 눕히~
-_-; 쏘리

Steven - 푸하하 아 웃겨.. 우리 넘하다. 벌써 스누피라고 정했구, 이젠 어디 누우라고 ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

(later on)

DADA - 때려 눕히

Steven - 유도 던져 눕히

눕히 - 스눕히 인데용 ㅋ_ㅋ

DADA - 역시 ㅋㅋㅋ 유도 던져 때려 눕히 스눕히였어!!!

my big sis [18 Jan 2009|10:37pm]
once wrote that I "at times could make miracles happen."

While I'm not so certain, tying my current story to her has ensured that I will see it through to the finish + send it out to the proper contests. Which would be a minor miracle in and of itself.

Came across this clip of Kan from way back. Ah miss her dearly, but at least we're in regular contact.

of 다다 (Dada), the video art from 1:02 onwards is like nothing I've seen before.

This little circle of ours may actually have lasting power.
