  1. It's not a good look for Facebook when a majority of us - heck, maybe neary all of us - have been so exposed to Facebook's shady business that we're de-sensitized from what they're doing this time around and under the impression that this is the norm for Facebook now.
  2. What do I have to do to get you to switch your pfp back to IU

      I've never had IU as my profile picture, it's always been Apink or the odd idol from other groups.

      Hmm. My memory seems to have betrayed me again. Hold on, gotta hit the Brain Combobulator.

  3. fromis_9 are a 9-member girlgroup formed through the 2017 reality show 'Idol School', with the name 'fromis_9' meaning 'from Idol School 9'. Today I'll be taking a listen to their pre-debut single 'Glass Shoes' which aims to project them into the hallyu wave, with a soulful and pure schoolgirl vibe, similar to that of earlier Gfriend works. Being a fan of girlgroups and especially ones with bubbly and sweet tones, I anticipate Glass Shoes will meet my expectations and be a song I'll enjoy for years to come. 0:02 - The song begins with a very innocent and pure instrumental coupled with the '빙글빙글' vocal harmonies from the girls, hinting at a pure and girly concept. 0:13 - I love how simple the instrumental here is, the instrumental isn't too busy or crowded but enough to maintain the bubbly energy the intro presented. The drum and the electric guitar give the song a sort of rock type of feel which elegantly contrasts with the sweet vocals and bubbly highs of the instrumentals. 0:28 - I love how the instrumental dips match the '생각하는 찰 나 에' to give the vocals some more pattern and rhythm about them. 0:37 - The chorus definitely inherits the rocky punky instrumentals from the first verse and it strangely works despite the pure and innocent vocal image. There's also a really low electric guitar tenudo below the entire composition which elevates the highs of the vocals even more, nice touch. 0:49 - I love how the instrumentals again match the rise and dips of the vocals to unify the vocals and the instrumentals to create a consistent and rhythmic composition. 1:00 - The turn back to the intro's soothing and innocent melody is a nice touch as it gives the listener a break from the sugar and bubbly nature of the chorus. 1:11 - This second verse has quite a subdued instrumental coupled with pure and sweet vocals, and begins to work its way back up as the second verse gets deeper into the pre-chorus. 1:36 - I love how innocent and pure the vocals sound, fromis_9 always has this cuteness about them and this particular chorus is no exception. 2:09 - This heartfelt and soulful bridge is accompanied by a mindful and soothing instrumental which I love as it showcases the raw vocal ability of the girls as well as taking a break from the bubbly vibe from the chorus and previous verses by giving us this soulful and relaxing bridge. 2:33 - I anticipated this chorus to increase a key but it didn't seem to really change in volume or texture at all, it seems like a normal chorus with no added adlibs or anything which I love as finishes off with that same pure and innocent vibe that fromis_9 started off with in that first chorus. I also love that by not increasing the compositional tone or texture, that the song throughout has remained with a soulful and pure tone. I really love this song. The innocent and pure textures of the composition combined with the sweet and girly vocals of the girls. The song also has a heartfelt and peaceful vibe which I like as it promotes that girly and innocent vibe that fromis_9 are going for. Glass Shoes I find is similar to Gfriend's earlier works such as Fingertip and Rough, all three of those songs have pure and soulful vibes about them. Glass Shoes' chorus definitely has this purity and soul that creates an innocent image for fromis_9. Being a pre-debut, I think the song is meant to be a representation of who fromis_9 is going to be in later comebacks, and I personally think it worked, but like I mentioned before, it's very similar to Gfriend with the innocent schoolgirl aesthetic which wasn't entirely effective to make them stand out to me. The song is still very cute and pure to me and musically, I really liked it.

      Ok, status is out...

  5. I remember my former family PC coming with Avast, and I was immediately unsettled. Very glad the new family PC has a fresh Windows 10 install and no sign of Avast.
  6. Give it up Intel, don't rush out with half-baked chips. They're going through generation numbers so fast yet there's so little 'innovation' that it means nothing but snake oil. They'd best have decent pricing to even be at least considered alongside Zen2 CPUs.
  7. fromis_9 returns with their 2019 album 'Fun Factory' after riding off the success of last year's hit song Love Bomb. The title track 'FUN!' aims to be a bubbly and gleeful Summertime song to bring a cute and playful atmosphere, and who better to represent a bubbly Summer song than the innocent and pure girls of fromis_9! Having been a fan of fromis_9 since the explosion of cuteness from Love Bomb (no pun intended) I've been looking forward to see what fromis_9 come up with next, considering that their previous discography before Love Bomb was very schoolgirl-esque and mellow. Love Bomb blew their previous concept out of the water with a bubbly and unapologetically cute concept which was extremely well-received. Today I'll be listening to the entire Fun Factory EP and analysing each song, as well as sharing my opinion on each of the song's compositions and of course, the girls' vocal performances. 0:02 - Nagyung's entrance is so flamboyant and bubbly especially combined with the chirpy instrumentals in the background. Her vocals also have a minor echo underneath which gives the composition room to breathe and give an effect of wide open space. 0:08 - The "FUN!" chorus tagline is an immediate hook, it's so catchy and fun to hear "FUN!" from them all, the instrumentals have also picked up in tempo as well giving the song some speed and intensity 0:16 - I love the introduction of some slight underlying bass as well as some heavier and busier background instrumentals to elevate the vocals of the girls who have naturally very girly and high range vocals. 0:23 - Nagyung comes back for this first verse with her amazingly girly and high-pitched vocals to be accompanied by that catchy and bubbly instrumental in the back. Jiwon's part is no exception, with the ends of her lines ending in a graduating rise in octaves to match the pace of the instrumental. 0:34 - It's so cute how Nagyung rhymed 'Ariana Grande' with 'geuronde', that is such great singing from Nagyung. 0:40 - Gyuri's verse here is much slower and more elegant than the bubbly instrumentals in the earlier verses. There's a lot of body in the instrumental to give a pure, rich, open choir effect to enhance Gyuri's soft and gentle vocals. I love the contrast between Gyuri's elegant and soft verse compared to the speedy and sugary verses from earlier. 0:56 - Right back into the sugary and bubbly chorus after the breathtaking break the listener was given by Gyuri's verse. I love how catchy the chorus is with the "FUN!" chant, it's so easily to sing along to. 1:11 - Seoyeon enters the second verse with a rapping segment, the instrumentals in this section are almost the polar opposite to the verses where they were bubbly and sugary, with the highs replaced with now deep lows to compliment the urban nature of Seoyeon's rapping. 1:19 - Hayoung's half-time part in this verse is a nice break and transition from Seoyeon's part similarly to Gyuri's pre-chorus. 1:23 - Romsae's feisty and sexy voice if only for a few seconds totally infatuates me here, she perfectly transitions the song's tempo and atmosphere back into the sugary sweet vibe. 1:49 - This time around it's Jisun to do the chorus, this time instead of the instrumental being open and airy, there is clapping going on to keep the fun (no pun intended) and speedy vibe going. 1:46 - At this point, I don't know how anybody can even think about not singing the chorus, there is no way somebody listens to this song and doesn't scream "FUN!" at the top of their lungs to sing along with the girls. 2:03 - As the song heads into the bridge, we get another pause in the sugary composition to breathe and make way for the bridge and finale. I love these short pauses as it gives us room to breathe after what we've heard so far but still leaves us hanging on for more of the same bubbly beat. 2:19 - The instrumentals here are very subdued and muted to continue with the tempo break, and we're lead to anticipate the epic final chorus. 2:26 - I love that this part is basically an acapella chorus to highlight the vocal ability of the girls since the chorus naturally had a busy and bubbly instrumental to go along with it which may have masked their singing slightly. 2:33 - The next part of the chorus goes back to the normal upbeat and bubbly instrumental that the song is known for having, and is a fantastic finishing touch to the song. 0:02 - This instrumental so far is very bubbly similar to the vibe I got from Fun! 0:18 - Similarly to Fun!, Love Rumpumpum begins with a mellow and lowkey instrumental matched with beautiful instrumentals. In this song, there's a lot more focus on the girls' vocals. 0:32 - The instrumental gets even more suppressed in this pre-chorus which gives the vocals some air and body, highlighting their amazing vocals. 0:45 - This chorus definitely has the innocent and pure vibe from earlier fromis_9 discography, it's got a very pure and hearty instrumentals and with the girly and youthful vocals to match. 1:07 - That subtle little echo in the 'Rumpumpum' is a nice airy vocal piece to give the song even more air and room. 1:18 - The instrumentals have picked up a bit from the first verse which promotes the bubbly vibe of the song nicely. 1:47 - At this point, I have "Love rumpumpum, love rumpumpum" stuck in my head, it's such a catchy little lyric. 2:18 - The instrumental gets super basic here to give the listener a break from the sparkly tone of the instrumental before, and also to transition nicely into the final chorus. 2:31 - One last catchy chorus to finish it off is great. I love how mellow the instrumental has been in comparison to Fun! 0:05 - Definitely a ballad vibe here with the mellow instrumental combined with the soulful vocals. 0:21 - The instrumental remains soft and simple here whilst the vocals also remain pure and innocent. 0:44 - I love the extended piano notes to give an airy and soulful vibe to compliment the vocals. 1:02 - Definitely a ballad, the vocals are so soulful and the instrumentals are so beautiful constructed and mended together. A beautiful composition. 1:43 - The soulful vocals remain whilst the instrumentals have picked up slightly, particularly that piano. I love the steady increase in volume. 2:25 - I love this part. It's so pure and raw. A few simple piano notes combined with soft and pillowy vocals. 2:44 - I love the pause in instrumental just to accentuate the high note here, it's so beautiful and soulful. 2:50 - This chorus is so beautiful. It's so soulful and heartfelt, especially since the instrumentals are so soft which highlights the vocals. Fun Factory is so amazing. Even though it's only 3 songs, every song stands on its merits, FUN! being the title and easily one of the best songs I've ever heard from fromis_9 to date, being so bubbly and chirpy, and with that contagious "FUN!" chant that is so easy to sing along to that you probably would do it involuntarily. Fun is such a fun song, no doubt about it. The vocals from all of the girls matched the instrumental so well to give a composition that is so sugary and bubbly. I also love the touch regarding the lowend bass during Seoyeon's part to give the urban and hiphop atmosphere during her verse, it was a nice touch. Love Rumpumpum reminded me a lot of fromis_9's earlier works with how pure and innocent the song sounded, the song was so sweet and innocent, and had the girly and youthful vocals to match. "Love rumpumpum, love rumpumpum" definitely got stuck in my head after the second chorus. As a whole, the album is amazing, and I will for sure remember Fun Factory as one of if not the best of fromis_9 albums.
  8. My little K-pop corner... Still not entirely set on how I've arranged these albums, but the left Apink square is about to become quite full soon.

  9. Apink returns with their 2018 album 'One & Six' and the title track 'I'm So Sick' also known as ' 1도 없어' officially. Apink aims to transition into a more mature and feminine concept over yesteryear's 'No No No' and 'Mr. Chu' hits. One & Six being one of Apink's more recent works at the time of review, the members have developed and grown their vocals and trained their singing to be top-notch over the years given that the group debuted all the way back in 2011. I have high hopes for this album and I'm anticipating this new mature and sexy concept from the girls. Today I'll be going through the entire One & Six album from start to finish, analysing the composition of the songs and reviewing what I like about each of the songs. For this particular album, I have acquired the 1200Kbps lossless FLAC versions of each of the songs, and will be playing them through foobar2000, so any timestamps displayed below will mirror the timestamps I am seeing for the official lossless file. 0:03 - The song enters beautifully with a harmonising vocal accompanied by a gorgeous bright instrumental. 0:19 - The same bubbly and bright instrumental accompanies Naeun's beautiful feathery vocals with the 1-2-1 1-2-1 1-2-1 singing to match the instrumentals, the subvocal with the (now I'm feeling) is crisp and clear and transitions the song nicely to Chorong's part, which also has a subvocal (i'm a liar) and the composition feels whole and bubbly in this part. 0:34 - Namjoo's shrill and cold vocals match perfectly with the cold sting to transition into her part of the chorus. The composition also picks up from the low and shallow tone of Naeun and Chorong's previous part which is a nice, steady build-up. Hayoung's entrance is amazing, her soft and pillowy voice contrasts the cold and shrill tones of Namjoo's voice to make for a distinct composition. 0:49 - Bomi takes the chorus here and her doll-like and chirpy voice steals the show, especially with the high and bubbly instrumentals in the background and accompanied by the low voice to elevate her voice even higher. Eunji's mature and husky vocals contrast Bomi's perfectly and again creates a clear distinction between two singers, excellent composition choice. 1:05 - This harmonizing subvocal is a perfect breather to the amazing vocals of the girls, it's a simple (whoaa) and (na na na na na) to accompany the previous chorus' instrumentals, and is great for getting the listener ready for the next verse and to soak in what an amazing chorus we just heard. 1:23 - Simlarly to the first verse, Naeun enters again with her pretty and feminine vocals and again with the same 1-2-1 1-2-1 1-2-1 singing which matches perfectly with the background instrumental. This is also true to Chorong's part of this second verse too, following that same rhythm. 1:36 - The echoey and whispery (do you love me) from Naeun is a great wake-up moment to keep the second verse from being identical from the first verse, and is also a fantastic way to showcase Naeun's naturally feminine vocals as well as transition into the next part of the verse. 1:39 - Namjoo enters once again with her amazingly distinct vocals to tell the listener exactly who's listening, and once again elevates the tempo and volume of the whole composition. This once again holds true to Hayoung's sexy and fluffy voice. 1:54 - Honestly can't get enough of this chorus, hearing the first chorus had me hooked, but the build-up from the second verse slowly rising in volume and leading to another excellent chorus makes the song amazing. Bomi and Eunji contrasting in vocals whilst the instrumentals remain the same is a testament to how amazing and refined each of the vocalist's singing is. 2:25 - The song takes a compositional break here and lowers the volume and tempo of the song to create a soulful and plentiful bridge with Chorong and Eunji's elegant and mindful vocals. The latter half of Eunji's part of this bridge also picks up a bit which anticipates a grand finale. 2:42 - One final chorus to finish it all off is how this song deserves to finish, especially with the final touch of adlib vocals in the back to give the chorus even more soul and body than the previous two. 0:10 - I love the introduction of the low-end bass to balance out the unapologetically high notes from the beginning. 0:16 - Interesting composition here retains the jingle from the start and Chorong enters with her angelic vocals. The kickdrums start to pick up when Hayoung enters. 0:49 - I love the mix of the highs and lows in the composition combined with the highs of the feminine vocals here. 1:08 - This is a very casual song in the sense that the composition isn't too loud and noisy, yet the song retains enough of a composition to be able to elevate the vocals of the girls. 1:25 - Interesting choice here to have the second verse have a nearly on-par background instrumental volume and punch as the chorus, which directly contrasts the first verse which was deceptively mellow. The kickdrums and clapping are very pronounced here. 2:00 - This chorus is also about on-par composition volume-wise as the first chorus as well as the second verse. It's a great compositional choice to have the song steadily rise in volume and soul. 2:40 - Eunji's vocals being left to rise as the background instrumentals halt is an amazing display of vocal ability from Eunji, I love this choice in compositional awareness. 0:08 - Really quite an interesting compositional choice here with the reversed instrumentals combined with echoey vocals from the girls. This verse has a very jazzy vibe about it. 0:50 - Eunji's warm and motherly vocals are a perfect match for the jazzy and soulful vibe here, her vocals are amazingly presented and the composition is still lowkey and shallow to allow her voice to shine through and take center-stage. 1:24 - I love the half-time here to elevate the vocals a bit and allow the listener to vibe out with the amazing singing, especially since the instrumentals are still lowkey. 3:02 - I love that the instrumentals drop a tiny bit to allow this final chorus to really be emphasised especially in the vocals department. 0:08 - The song starts off in an almost ballad-like approach with soft velvety vocals accompanied by a mellow piano melody. The introduction of the guitar re-inforced a soulful type fo song here. 0:34 - Definitely a ballad. There's so much soul and heart going into these vocals, and especially when joined by an amazing array of instrumentals to elevate the calm atmosphere of the song. So very beautiful in every way in the composition. 0:54 - I am so in love with the "I wish forever star" and how echoey and soulful the singing is as it raises an octave along with the instrumentals. So soulful. 2:19 - This beautiful guitar bridge is a great display of vocals and also contrasts the previous instrumentals before it, creating a distinct composition here. 0:15 - This is a fairly up-tempo and heroic instrumental to begin with, especially with the soft vocals to accompany them. 0:33 - I love the 1-1-3 1-1-3 tempo of the singing here as it matches the instrumentals that are ever so slightly picked up from the beginning. 0:52 - This is quite a funky and poppy instrumental here contrasted with the earlier linear instrumentals. The vocals are also great here, getting their body and soul from the busy instrumental. 1:33 - The way the instrumentals pick up here to match the vocals beyond Chorong's shy and motherly vocals here is a nice contrast to distinguish who is singing and is great to build up for the next chorus. 2:35 - This bridge has quite a teenage group vibe about it with the low piano and the harsh drums combined with soft and ballady vocals. 2:54 - I love how this final chorus starts off with nothing and immediately comes back in with the instrumentals to end with an epic finale with the adlibs on this chorus. 0:17 - This is quite a funky and disco beat from this verse, there isn't too much happening in the instrumentals which promotes the vocal ability and makes the singing more forward. 0:46 - Definitely a disco feel, it sounds very retro and early 2000's with how jazzy and upbeat the instrumentals are. The vocals match the instruments well. 1:46 - Same kind of feel from the chorus, not too much change-up which is good for keeping the song on the same vibe and feel. 2:09 - This EDM bridge is an interesting voice and further re-inforces the disco feel of the song as a whole, this song is so upbeat and clubby. 2:49 - Probably the loudest the song has gotten, it finishes off strong with an upbeat and linear build-up from the initial first verse. I absolutely love the direction Apink have gone with this one. All the songs sound very mature and feminine, and steering slightly away from their older stuff. I'm So Sick is an amazing title track and sets the scene for what Apink have planned in the future. The compositional choices of the song allow distinct and clear separation between each member's vocals and it's so great in showing who is singing and showing that the song shines using all six of the members, which I guess is why the album is named 'One & Six'. I like the ballad 'Forever Star' as well as it's a fantastic display of raw vocal talent from the girls, the instrumental choices perfectly accompany what amazing vocals Apink have, it was a great choice to have a ballad that is different from their previous works into an album as great as this one. I'm So Sick is and will probably always be one of my favorite songs of all time, it's so perfect in every way, and I truly believe it's down to the fact that Apink have the stellar vocals to carry the song's momentum, and how perfectly each member contrasts each other's voices to create a distinct and well-structured finished product. The composition is bubbly and sparkly, and shows their sexy and mature side which is in stark contrast to their previous work as mentioned before.

      @Tog Driver i'm not sure exactly. i tried to play it at my grandma's house sinc eshe has one of those prehistoric record players that will play a 78rpm record, but it's too broken to clearly hear the instruments. you can hear the voices still though. i've put it in a pictureframe for now to make sure it stays in good condition and i've hung it on my wall xD

      Oh nice. sucks that it's damaged, but I guess that's not surprising.

  11. EXID's 2018 single, I Love You, marks the comeback of their vocalist and leader Solji, who was absent from previous comebacks due to complications with her health. The five-member group returns with their new single, I Love You, a single that harkens to the themes of 80's disco and pop culture with the overly-engineered synths, VCR effects, polaroids, extreme shots of saturation and color, as well as the amazing vocal performances from the girls. I've been a big fan of EXID and am glad to see Solji is back for this new single. Today I'll be going through the single and analysing the composition, instrumentals, vocals, as well as my general opinion on the song as whole. I actually have a physical edition of this particular K-pop release and have acquired the 1411Kbps lossless FLAC version of this song, since I love EXID so much and bought the album! I'll be listing the timestamps of I Love You through what I can see foobar2000 is reporting. 0:00 - Immediately the song begins with a very retro composition with a low synth, kickdrums, cowbells, and a fervid vocalist repeating "I love you" in a catchy and repetitive way. EXID are known for doing these repetitive intros and choruses so it is not surprise that they incorporate one here, and it works great as it gives a sense of intensity as to what is to come next. 0:18 - Hani's vocals are so present and warm, they're accompanied perfectly with the background composition and the flow is fantastic. I love the coldness of her voice complimenting the 80's theme of the song. 0:35 - The transition from Hani's verse to LE's rapping is amazing, it goes from this low and dark composition followed by a synth to turn the beat from warm & seductive to urban & hip, the beat picks up an octave along with the introduction of the cowbell. The kickdrums appear to have a lot more echo and body about them as well especially with LE's subvocals and echo effect underneath her vocals. LE's voice is naturally sexy and having double her vocals and a high-end beat is a great combination. 0:53 - Hyelin's vocals are amazingly presented here with the exponentionally higher-toned background composition with now super bubbly sparkly tones contrasted by the low-end bass, this is truly something I would associate with 80's disco. Hyelin's voice here sounds so beautiful and fits the composition so well. 1:00 - Solji's vocals are equally as beautiful as Hyelin's, the composition remains the same which emphasises the differences in their voices and focuses the listener on their own voices instead of the composition, which is difficult to pull off given the 80's influence and the emphasis on the poppy instrumentals, but they do it perfectly, especially when they have such trained vocals and singing. I also love how Solji's high notes are in perfect timing with the times in the instrumental where the synth reaches its apex. Great compositional design. 1:11 - I once again absolutely love how Solji's "I love you" lines are perfectly harmonised with the instrumentals, it adds body and elevates her already-stellar vocals so much and I love that. In fact, the remainder of the chorus also gives the members perfectly in-time synth elevations. I love this compositional choice and it really gives a retro 80's vibe. 1:44 - This simple kickdrum and synth combination to go with Hani's cold yet seductive whispery vocals is great, the vocals have a nice reverb around them and gives full attention towards her amazing vocal performance. 1:52 - LE's rapping comes in again and it's once again fantastic, her high notes are complimented by a vibrant echo which gives her voice some body and elevates her song above the composition, contributing to the vibe of the song. 2:01 - Similarly to the first verse, there's not a lot that's going on composition-wise, but Jeonghwa's vocals are amazingly vibrant and complimented by an echo effect, same applies to Hani's vocals later in the verse with her once again sexy whispery voice. 2:44 - This is where the song reaches its climax and its a happy one, the chorus' amazing hook combined with Solji's adlibs finish the song off so perfectly. What a great ending to an amazing song. This is easily going into my top K-pop songs of 2018. The song is rich with talented vocals, amazing instrumentals, and even better composition and producer choices. Hyelin and Solji's vocals compliment each other perfectly, LE's rapping is as usual on point and elevated by the quicker tempo of the instrumentals, and Hani's luxurious vocals were a gift to the ears. If nobody had told me (and mostly because I was born in '00) I would have never guessed this was a 2018 song, the song screams a time before EDM and productions heavily favoring electronics rather than raw vocal power and of course synths. I love that EXID are not afraid to break boundaries of what music should sound like, or conform to the usual bubbly songs found in mainstream K-pop. EXID's I Love You is a perfect example of how music can be expressed by anyone and not locked down to a particular theme, pattern, or genre. This retro song is truly a work of art and the girls have done a fantastic job in making it.
  12. Nice, so my ass is glowing and hot but not for the right reasons.
  13. Out of curiousity, I decided to buy the KZ ZST in-ear monitors for like $15. I thought it would be interesting to compare stuff in this price range to my flagship FiiO FH5s.

     

    Spoiler alert, these are kind of garbage, or I'm just too demanding of high quality audio that I've been de-sensitized against the budget stuff.
