Music

My 2012: While you were busy Googling ‘What is a Gangnam?’…


Queer Links from the Week

musicians wanted: guitar, bass, clarinet, violin

I'm a guitarist trying to form an acoustic gypsy jazz group to perform in clubs around Daegu and Busan. Looking for an acoustic guitarist, stand up baas player, violinist and a clarinetist (sax, or other instruments that lend themselves to gypsy jazz ok)

Keyboardist / singer wanted - electronic / (a little rock)/ dance band

Hey all, my friends and I are starting a new band and need some people! Since rock bands are a dime a dozen, we want to do something fun that gets some booties shaking in the bars, something fun that makes people jump up and dance. That's where you come in.

We need a keyboard / synth player! Right now we have bass, drums, and guitar, lacking the key ingredient for dance music.

We also need a singer. Me (the bassist) and the guitarist can both sing backup but have no experience or skill or guts to be a front-man for the band. If someone can play keys and sing, that'd be sweet. If not, then two people will be good too.

Besides that, we're open to the idea of an emcee / rapper to join us. I haven't seen that done much around here, but why the hell not

We like to have fun more than practicing scales, so we aspire to have some crowd hype-people and one of us might wear some pink tights at a gig.


Seoul Santacon: So be good for goodness sake!

christmas

There are few times in life when I believe it is appropriate for a group of friends to wear bright and matching outfits, disregard the personal space and solitude of others in public and obnoxiously sing childish songs while moving from one drinking establishment to another. One of these times would have to be Seoul Santacon.


Music, Melodies, and Metal at Jazz Story

One of my favorite things about Seoul is that it is scattered with hidden gems, unsuspecting and obscure, that offer those that are lucky enough to discover them a special treat.  Restaurants, cafes, galleries, and bars are easy to find in Korea's capital city, but it's the ones tucked into back alleys and inconspicuous buildings that allure me the most, making me feel as if I've been let in on a secret when I find them.  

‘We Need a Little Christmas’

The Holidays are full of traditions and being away from home this time of year has me clinging to some of the traditions I can replicate overseas.  Today I was talking with a friend about things we watch every year and it made me realize I was overdue to watch my absolute favorite Christmas tradition: A Muppet Family Christmas.


Christmas Island

Now that November is over, NaNo is done, and I have relaxed enough to return to my regular state of weird, I have begun getting pumped for Christmas and my upcoming vacation to CAMBODIA!

Just from the few things I’ve looked at about Cambodia, I am already super excited and can’t wait!

Yesterday I started looking around and began trying to figure out my plans for the week I am there.  I would appreciate any and all suggestions and recommendations.  This is the first time I’ll be in a warm climate for Christmas and also the first time I’ll be away from family and/or friends that have become my family, so it will be a different experience to say the least.

Before leaving for Cambodia, I plan on getting my fill of cold weather Christmas here in Korea.  Yesterday I started making a Christmas tree for my apartment (which is still a work in progress).  Today while watching Elf,  I may have also made a few whales wearing scarves. It get’s cold in the ocean.


Exclusive: PSY`s Anti-America Protesting Past?

Note: This is the original story that broke the whole PSY anti-American scandal wide-open. Was wild to watch it start from my little musings over on Haps to eventually being  cited by everyone from the New York Times to Time Magazine to ABC news.

“Gangnam Style” has made PSY a global household name with millions of adoring fans. According to recent English translations of his performances in 2002 and 2004, PSY participated in several high profile anti-American military protests on the peninsula that might anger some, while winning over others.


Little Rock Concert at Hansung University

As I sat inside a small auditorium at Hansung University watching a small rock concert put on by students, I couldn't help but look around and consider that in a year I would be far-far away from this place.
