My current obsession is the Japanese air band Golden Bomber. It's just as it implies--the guys do not play their own instruments; only the lead singer sings as well as writes the lyrics and co-writes the music. They have some of the most amusing music vids if you decide to check them out and their lyrics are hilarious. The following song is called "Memeshikute" which translates into "unmanly" or "girly."



Their skits during concerts are hilarious too:

Always Maynard. <3 (Maynard James Keenan, most famously from Tool.)
He could sing Row Your Boat forever and I'd never get tired of it.

I only know a few of their songs, but my boyfriend really likes them. Their music videos make me feel so many conflicting things! But I enjoy listening.

They were really adorable and good on SNL. I like them more now that I know they are good live.

i'm a bartender currently, have been for nearly two years. most of the time I love my job. the pay is fantastic (where I am at least), time goes quickly on most shifts as long as you don't stand around doing nothing, and the people are usually quite friendly.

the bad side can be cutting people off, standing up for yourself, etc. i'm only twenty so i've had a hard time trying to move up in the industry. even though I (and the people I work with) know i'm damn good at my job, there's a lot of concern that people won't like taking direction from someone younger. you have to be very firm and have a strong backbone, at least where I work.

there are a lot of fun times. I remember last australia day we got closed down early, we all stayed back and drank with the licensee (free drinks, free pouring, having the whole pub to ourselves, good times). on one of the girls' birthday the same licensee got the dj to stay longer and the staff were all on stage, that was good fun. there's been times where people have won big and shouted all the staff drinks after work, too. the best part for me is how social the job is :)

I'm being very shallow nowadays so I'd have to say Super Junior since Choi Siwon is in it. I never used to particularly care for them since they debuted in 2005 but I dunno why, recently he's just looking so hot. I still don't care for the rest of the group though.

I'm a bartender (and waitress sometimes) and I love it so so much, but some customers can be frustrating or outright infuriating.

Yeah. It was a job. Meh, no stories apart from the occasional robbery or attempted robbery, or people who've really tried to fuck with my head.

Also, the things you find people leave behind... DO NOT WANT.

U-Kiss are an extremely cheesy/super fun Korean boyband. I think I've been hooked on them for about a year now. When I'm drunk, I tell people I'm Kevin Woo (one of the members)

My top two forever and ever:

Jethro Tull (Ian Anderson in his hey day)


The Smashing Pumpkins (current lineup...love them in any form, though stuff after Machina hasn't been as enjoyable for me)
