Let Us Contemplate: Irony Pt.1

Oh, boy here I go about Kpop again. But for the time being it is a topic that is of interest to me. For various reasons from the “Oh, this song it catchy” to the “Right, now let’s look at the sociological and cultural context you’re trying to drive from and call me back when you’re no longer in delusion-ville.”

A question was posed:

Would you give up American Pop for Kpop?

Now, let us ponder this. Would I give up American pop (warts, wrinkles, failings and all…) for Kpop which is regurgitated knock off American pop (random English phrases sold separately–and often.)

Considering that listening to Kpop does nothing but enhance one’s appreciation of Pop music; because then we get to see how far down a dark path it can go. The 80s were a bad time–let it die, let it die.

That’s not to say that all Kpop is a horrendous mashup of Michael Jackon meets the Lolipop Guild. No, far from it. Aside from the hyper upbeat melodies and the sequined, leather pants complete wit h pelvic thrusts and matching eyeshadow: The men do pretty well for themselves. And the girl groups would too, if only they could figure out if they’re 12 or 15..(sometimes it gets confusing after you hit 21…apparently.)

All jokes aside though, really: Why would any one ditch the original for a cheap wanna be copy?

Case closed, dismissed and disregarded.

One more thing though, before I go. I would like to formally announce that all Beyonce impersonaltions should cease and decisit immediately. No, you are not dancing well, no you are not singing the song well, no you are not doing any justice to anything. No amount of captions declaring “sexy!” and “powerful!” will change that. Again, say it with me: “Delusion is bad. Delusion is bad.”

If I were Beyonce I’d sue for Defamation of Character. Honestly. Stop.

Gravity has seen fit to subpoena me into obeying it. Therefore it seems I am stuck on this little hunk of rock entitled: Earth. I really wish they'd let me go back to Saturn. Reverse-illegal immigration is really, very droll.
