Speechless

Wow, where to start. Might as well go in order of my day. So I've known about YouTube for a while, since occasionally people would upload videos there that I wanted to see. But today Ariana opened my eyes. Because she actually went on the YouTube site and searched for things. I would just click on links that people gave me. But this way I found all these 1TYM and Danny media files.. it was wonderful. Haha, the things I do at work. Anyway, just wanted to share one file with you that I found (by searching "korean" and having it listed by ranking). It's not that great, and you might find it long and dragging, but I like its style.

Break Dance w/ Korean Traditional Style Cannon Music
(the instrument is the gayageum--something I used to play when I was a liddo kid!)

In other news, I also went to see American Dreamz today. That was quite an amusing, and oftentimes hilarious, movie. I loved how they portrayed our president. The ending is a bit, for lack of a better adjective, odd.. but it's an enjoyable movie. Just remember: never enter a movie with high expectations. Always low. Or none. Haha.

One amusing scene:
First Lady: [talking about the pills they've been taking] Sometimes I feel like they're placebos.
President: o.O Placebos? Aren't they illegal?
First Lady: *laughs* Placebo means fake.
President: *pause* Oh. Sometimes I think I'm a placebo.

I then came back to the apartment, checked Bleach7, and found sad news. Bleach is now officially licensed!!! Viz has taken it away from me. Sadness. And now I will no longer have Lunar-subbed Bleach episodes to watch. Heartbroken I tell you, heartbroken. Anyone have any preference for either Dattebayo or Bleach-Society subs? I've always counted on Lunar.. now I don't know who to turn to!

Oh, and in case you're wondering, Trial #2: Sobe's Adrenaline Rush also turned out to be a fraud. As did another energy drink that my mum bought for me. I'm starting to think I'm immune to caffeine. But Mountain Dew's Amp may have worked. There were too many confounding variables so I'm going to try it again. And if that also fails, must move on to Rock Star. Stay tuned for what happens next!

FRAUDS!

So I finally tried Red Bull. Heard about it for a long time, but never actually tried it out. But I'm always tired and sleepy, so I finally decided it was time to take action. Ergo, I bought three different energy drinks this weekend: Red Bull, Mountain Dew's Amp, and Sobe's Adrenaline Rush.

Today was Trial #1: Red Bull.
Conclusion? Fraud.

Yes, that's right, it's a fraud. Stupid carbonated drink that smells like medicine did NOTHING for me except make me want to go pee XP So Red Bull is now out of the running. Next trial: Sobe's Adrenaline Rush. When is yet to be determined.

One more thing that is a fraud (in a sense) but much more interesting: iGallop.

What is iGallop you ask? See for yourself: iGallop TV Ad

In case you don't understand it, it's an exercise machine. Supposed to work out your ass and your abs. Emily (counselor @ EAP office where I work) found the link and showed it to us. It was quite amusing in its stupidity. And I love that it's made by a family-orientated company. I'm sure the little kids will enjoy this.
