about a few people using Macs.

WHY BUY A MAC TO RUN WINDOWS ALL. THE. TIME?

No, seriously. I’ve never seen this one guy NOT use Windows… on his brand-new Macbook Air, to boot. Augh. It’s like… Did you buy it just to show off your shiny new gadget and was too lazy to learn how to maneuver the new operating system?! if so, what a waste of money, because the Macbook Air actually ISN’T the thinnest laptop in the world; that distinction was given to the Mitsubish Pedion, which is basically dead. Anyways, what I mean is, instead of buying a computer with a totally different operating system just for its shinyness and “innovativeness”… get the equivalent that has the operating system you’re used to on it! I feel like it’s such a waste. I mean, you could be learning about a new operating system and how to use it… but no, you’ve got to slap on good ol’ Windows on. a. Mac. and use it constantly.

I understand that it’s nice to run Windows on a Mac, because let’s face it – the Mac edition of Microsoft Office is nowhere near as efficient as the new Microsoft Office 2007 suite. And we all want to use a properly-working edition of Excel sometimes! But still… the people that do the above… I just don’t understand. Money to burn, perhaps?

Why are male professional dancers so hot. Hahahahaha. Ah, and then really interesting how a well-designed (and well-selected) pair of glasses can make a person look 10000x better.

(The hot guy that is apparently a professional dancer. Hee hee. 😀 )

Anyways, was at Club Answer for the Wally Lopez DJ show last night with Roos and towards the end of his set, I got invited up to stand next to him behind his equipment! He waved at me to come up, and up I went, haha. There were some club staff that tried to stop me, but he waved his arm to let me through and then I was standing next to him! It was really cool! I looked at the equipment and it seems like a completely multi-tasking job. So many things to control and be aware of at once; you have to insert the right CD to play the next song, you have to listen to the headphones to decide what track to play next, you have to fiddle with some buttons and slides to add and control sound effects, etc. etc. Oh yeah, he took a picture with me hahahahaha. It was seriously so fun! I now want to try DJ-ing more than ever. However, the crowd last night was ok. Not many of the usual hipster-ish crowd that I love to go and see, haha. That’s ok, I think the crowd was right for the DJ, anyways.

But it was amazing! I think I’ve turned into a club rat, hee hee. That’s ok… it’s all in the pursuit of great music.

But I am still VERY MUCH so upset about missing the Steve Aoki show at the Walkerhill Hotel the weekend I was in Daegu (대구). The freaking COBRASNAKE WAS THERE. AUGH. I can’t believe I missed one of the biggest shows of the year in Seoul. Sigh. When I found out the COBRASNAKE WAS THERE… you have no idea how crushed I was. Sighhhhhhh.

I really want a white pair of Doc Marten boots. The issue is… do I buy a pair of them here, where they’re like 2x the price, or when I go back to the United States? The logical answer is… I wait and buy them when I’m back in the United States but… I really want them now. Typical Eunice thinking. And yes, I shouldn’t and I probably won’t, but I WANT I WANT I WANT. It’s totally illogical to buy them here because they’re so much more incredibly expensive, and they’d be really heavy to ship back when I can just buy them in the States for cheaper and be able to choose from a wider variety of boots. Oh, how I love and dislike this city. Seoul has captured my heart and will always.

Yummy… *drools* Also need to find a pair of silver or gold sneakers to wear to the SPEKTRA show on June 6th, once again at Answer…

Look at my pictures of the Korean Coming-of-Age Ceremony that my exchange friends and I participated in!

Coming-of-Age Ceremony (성년의 날 예식)

We sat in the very front, and since my friends obviously look foreign, the media went crazy over them. We got some great pictures from the media and we were all over the news, hee hee.

Part 2

Needless to say, it was a very interesting ceremony.

I really want a cocktail right now. -_-;;

Dang it, after closely analyzing several videos of Tektonik, it looks like C-Walk is a definite foundation for this dance. Bah! The first type of dance I kinda gave up on learning. Oh well, back to basics.

It also seems to have finally made its way over into Seoul! On Friday, at Club Answer, I saw a waiter practice it in the middle of working. Yay!

I’m going to practice this intensively… hee hee.
