30 Days of Music

So I was actually going to do this on my facebook, but my mobile phone won't let me use tinysong anymore, so I'll sum them all up here with some jewtube links where appropriate. The other links are links to Grooveshark, where you can listen to the song without any annoying Youtube shit like bad quality sound and shitty fanvids.

Day 01 — Your favorite song: EELS — Things the Grandchildren should know
My favorite song used to be Climbing up to the Moon by EELS for a very long time, but I've been thinking, and the lyrics to this song are just so amazing.

Day 02 — Your least favorite song: Brokencyde — Bree
Dear God, just listening to this makes my ears bleed and shortens my life by at least a day. I heard this song first in a 'You quit you lose' playlist from /v/ and goddamn. There were three Brokencyde songs in there, but they made the mistake of doing this one first and after sitting through this piece of shit I felt like I could handle anything they'd throw at me.

Day 03 — A song that makes you happy: Sakamoto Maaya — Mameshiba

Her Lucy CD is seriously the best spring CD ever, almost every song on there makes me feel really happy.

Day 04 — A song that makes you sad: Christina Stürmer — Mama (Ana Ahabak)

It's a song about a young girl losing her mother in the war and singing about how much she loves her. Try not to get sad while listening to that.

Day 05 — A song that reminds you of someone: Sonata Arctica — Tallulah
This was 'our song' for me and a friend. We've since gone our separate ways, but it still reminds me of her.

Day 06 — A song that reminds you of somewhere: Feuerschwanz — Met und Miezen

This reminds me of the awesome time we had at Wacken Open Air 2009. Also, I know the quality is shit, but you've really got to SEE Feuerschwanz to understand their awesomeness. And yes, the band is called Firepenis. Or it could be Fire tail. But that's just preposterous.

Day 07 — A song that reminds you of a certain event: Savatage — All that I Bleed
I sang this song in Highschool during an extremely amateuristic performance. It was pretty fun to do, and I still love singing this song a lot.

Day 08 — A song that you know all the words to: Iron Maiden — Dance of Death

I pretty much know the words to most music that I like, but with 9:23 of mostly unique lyrics (like, no constant repititions of certain phrases and stuff), Dance of Death might be the longest track I know the complete lyrics to. It's certainly one of the most interesting. Cool outfit by the way, Bruce.

Day 09 — A song that you can dance to: SNSD — Gee

Not only CAN I dance to this, I basically HAVE TO every time I hear it. I also know the lyrics. Well, not the actual lyrics, because I'm lazy, but I can sing along without you hearing that I don't have a clue what the hell I'm singing.
Also, on a related note; while I had this song on in my car one time I almost drove into another car because I was doing the dance behind the wheel. Whoops.

Day 10 — A song that makes you fall asleep: Kings of Convenience — Into the Ring of Fire
This song makes me fall asleep in a good way. Kings of Convenience is such a great band to calm down by, and the voices of their vocalists go so well together that it always reminds me of a choir of angels singing, even though it is only two guys. They manage to make really beautiful music using only their voice and a guitar, and I love that.

Day 11 — A song from your favorite band: EELS — Rotten world blues
Everyone knows my favorite band is EELS, but not everyone knows this song since it was a bonus track on only a certain release of the Souljacker album. Luckily all EELS fans have been able to enjoy it with the release of Useless Trinkets.

Day 12 — A song from a band you hate: Korn – anything

Nu-metal isn't metal, boys. It is also gay as shit.

Day 13 — A song that is a guilty pleasure: Evanescene — Bring me to life

God it's so bad. But why do I love it so? ;_;
For the record, I only listen to the version without the shitty rap in it. I mean I can handle cheeze, but not that kind of crap.

Day 14 — A song that no one would expect you to love: Blof — Harder dan ik hebben kan

Not many people know I actually do enjoy some Dutch music. In fact, I think the only person I told outright is Chizu, but Zinzi said I'd talked about it before. We used to drink together quite often, so it might've been one of those times =p This song is really beautiful, and it's a shame there's no subtitles for those who don't speak Dutch.

Day 15 — A song that describes you: EELS — Ugly Love
I know EELS songs just keep coming along, but it's not my fault ONLY THEY UNDERSTAND HOW DEEP I AM.

Day 16 — A song that you used to love but now hate: Britney Spears — Oops I did it again

Problem, officer?

Day 17 — A song that you hear often on the radio: Bob Marley – One Love
I never listen to the radio, but I fucking hate reggae so every time I hear this it's one time too many.

Day 18 — A song that you wish you heard on the radio: Hamka — Ignition
If I ever hear this on the radio, that station will be my favorite radio station forever.

Day 19 — A song from your favorite album: Ram-Zet — I'm not Dead
Pure Therapy is a brilliant album that tells a story from start to finish, and it does so with a style and elegance that usually doesn't come easy to Metal albums. It's the best Metal album ever made in my opinion, even though the seperate songs are in no way the best songs ever made.

Day 20 — A song that you listen to when you're angry: Slayer — Disciple

Nothing like yelling at God and calling everyone assholes when you're angry. My voice always gets raspy and fucked up after singing this first song though, so I usually go back to silent sulking afterwards.

Day 21 — A song that you listen to when you're happy: Orikasa Fumiko — Flower

The combination of her pretty voice and the upbeat music just makes me feel even happier :3 Also, this is the first time I've been able to actually find the original PV and as you can see it's incredibly cute. Orikasa Fumiko is also the Seiyuu of my favorite anime character, Miu Matsuoka, so it's pretty cool that she's also a g
reat singer.

Day 22 — A song that you listen to when you're sad: Masayoshi Yamazaki — One more time, one more chance

This is one of the most beautiful songs ever created, and I made the video window extra big because it's the main song in the most beautiful anime ever created. It makes me cry like a little bitch, and that's what I like to do when I'm sad. Put the english lyrics next to it if you really feel like letting go.

Day 23 — A song that you want to play at your wedding: Sakamoto Maaya — Aoi Hitomi
If only for the beautiful harp. I also have blue eyes (kind of) so we could pull it off.

Day 24 — A song that you want to play at your funeral: EELS — Things the grandchildren should know
This is indeed the second time this song is in the list, but it pretty much says everything I'd want to tell my kids. Or, you know, grandchildren. Plus, it's so beautiful I'm sure it'll make everyone cry even if they didn't like me.

Day 25 — A song that makes you laugh: Reetman — Een Dode Vis

A song about a man who shoves a dead fish up his ass. I fucking love reetman. Also, surprisingly, he's not famous enough to be up on Grooveshark, but luckily there was some crazy Dutch guy who uploaded it to Youtube. Lucky you!

Day 26 — A song that you can play on an instrument: Megadeth — A Secret Place

I used to be able to play this on guitar. I have to admit it's not that hard, but it feels badass as fuck to play this along with the cd.

Day 27 — A song that you wish you could play: Megadeth — Holy Wars

If only I had learned to play this instead of My Secret Place..

Day 28 — A song that makes you feel guilty: Merzbow

It makes me feel guilty for not getting anyone into noise. In b4 DURHURTHATDOESN'TSOUNDLIKEMUSICBREV. Watch the 2005 Japanese movie Eli, Eli, Lema Sabachthani?

Day 29 — A song from your childhood: Gummiberen intro

All the songs from my childhood were pretty much cartoon OPs. Also, Gummiberen is badass as all fuck. Look at those bears going at it.

Day 30 — Your favorite song at this time last year: EELS — Climbing to the Moon
A wonderful way to end this list.

👹🇰🇷 #대한민국화이팅 🇰🇷👹 오늘은 못 이겼는데, 끝까지 응원할게! Unlike my home country of the Netherlands, Korea actually qualified for the World Cup, so I thought it was only right for me to go show my love and 열 for my second-favorite country in the world. Gwanghwamun was packed to the brim with people, which made for a really great atmosphere in spite of the buses constantly blocking our view of the screens that had been erected (because closing off streets is WAY too European). Unfortunately, we didn't manage to win, but I think we played a pretty decent match tonight. No matter what the future holds for the Korean team, I'll always be cheering for them! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #WorldCup #WorldCup2018 #SwedenKorea #KoreaSweden #Cheer #Football #Soccer #Voetbal #Gwanghwamun #대한민국 #월드컵 #월드컵2018 #축구 #한국스웨덴 #스웨덴한국 #거리응원 #응원 #광화문 #광화문광장
TY usually tries to slip out of the studio as quickly as possible, so I was surprised to see him having a small fan meeting after the matches today. He played some amazing games against GuMiho, and as a fan I couldn't be happier to see that his form has been improving again. He's always been my favorite Terran, so I hope he'll be continuing on this path to success. The rematch for the 2016 GSL Season 1 finals between TY and Zest is slated for coming Wednesday, so definitely come down to the AfreecaTV studio if you have the opportunity! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Afreecatv #GSL #Starcraft #Starcraft2 #SC2 #Zest #Protoss #TY #Terran #Progamer #Progaming #Gamer #Gaming #eSports #Signature #스타 #스타크래프트 #스타2 #스타크래프트2 #전태양 #주성욱 #테란 #프로토스 #e스포츠 #게이밍 #프로게이머 #게이머 #아프리카tv #싸인
Thanks to my thesis taking up pretty much every waking hour of my time, I haven't been able to see any GSL matches this season. Thankfully, now that I successfully completed my defense, it is once again 스타크래프트 타임! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #Afreeca #Afreecatv #GSL #Starcraft #Starcraft2 #SC2 #Zest #Protoss #TY #Terran #Progamer #Progaming #Gamer #Gaming #eSports #스타 #스타크래프트 #스타2 #스타크래프트2 #전태양 #주성욱 #테란 #프로토스 #e스포츠 #게이밍 #프로게이머 #게이머 #아프리카tv #아프리카
"We laymen have always been intensely curious to know ... from what sources that styrene being, the creative writer, draws his material, and how he manages to make such an impression on us with it and to arouse emotions of which, perhaps, we had not even thought ourselves capable." - Freud, 1908 My thesis on the use of Mentor Texts to teach creative writing is finally done! I successfully completed my defense today, and will be making the final revisions in the next couple of days. It has been a long and exhausting ride from the drawing board to the final line of text, but I think I've come up with something to be proud of. A big thank you to my friends and family, who supported me throughout my two year academical adventure. And an even bigger thank you to my thesis advisor Dr. Lim Hyun Woo, without whom my thesis wouldn't have been possible, and to Lee Ji Yeon, without whom I might not have even made it this far. The road ahead is still long and full of difficulties, but at least the first big hurdle has been taken. Bring on the rest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Thesis #Thesisdefense #Pass #Passed #HUFS #TESOL #Education #EnglishEducation #Hankukuniversityofforeignstudies #University #외대 #한국외국어대학교 #한국외대 #논문 #논문발표 #졸업 #합격 #영어교육
There's a reason I haven't been posting much lately, and that reason is that it's thesis season in Korea right now. As a Master student in his last semester, I am very much feeling the pressure! I wrapped up the data collection for my thesis about a week ago, and the entire thing should be finished and submitted in...three days from now. So basically, all I've been doing for the past few weeks has been sitting in front of my computer, looking at data, listening to smooth jazz playlists on youtube and praying I somehow manage to get all of this stuff together in time to graduate. Let's hope I'll get a chance to shoot more interesting things than just this picture of some flowers I found on my 3AM life-contemplating walk very soon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #Seoul_Korea #Thesis #thesisdefense #writing #homework #graduation #HUFS #TESOL #Education #university #flowers #midnight #night #painting #studentlife #한국외국어대학교 #한국외대 #외대 #논문 #논문발표 #논문준비 #연구 #졸업 #꽃 #학생생활
This weekend the 156th Seoul Comic World was hosted in SETEC in Gangnam. Comic World is a little like the Japanese Comiket: a large event where individual artists or art circles are given the chance to show off and hopefully sell their work to a huge community of anime and manga fans. Unlike Comiket though, Comic World is hosted at least once a month, either in Seoul or in Busan. And tickets are only ₩5000! One of the greatest things about this event is how all the goods are so cheap. Cards usually go for ₩800 or ₩1,000; posters for ₩3,000; key chains for ₩5,000 and you can even get little plastic cutouts of characters you can put on your desk for about ₩15,000. The other greatest thing are the cosplayers: people who worked for weeks or months on a costume to show off their love for a certain character. Unfortunately, the bad weather yesterday meant there weren't many opportunities for taking pictures, but when the weather's good you'd be in for a treat! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ══════════════════════ #Seoul #Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul_Korea #ComicWorld #SeoulComicWorld #Anime #Manga #Comics #Deadpool #Spiderman #Ash #EvilDead #Cosplay #Marvel #Avengers #Pokemon #서울코믹월드 #코믹월드 #아니메 #만화 #코믹 #데드풀 #스파이더맨 #애시 #이블데드 #코스플레이 #마블 #어벤져스 #포케몬
