Didja land here somehow without hitting Mischief's homepage? Or any of the other ones? Fixed pages like chapters... Wanna go?
Context for all these music and mood musings... I'm immersed, for my own good.
I go where I wanna go. And there I look, breathlessly.
And briefly, a link to my new-not-done-enough FMV page. Yep. Access for my adoring fans. Zico body rolls. Hey hey, need I say more.
And my obsession is still running with the Hoppipolla gang.
Now with Youngso, because I've discovered all his originals, and all his covers.
This is astonshing talent in this childlike form and face. The sweetest look..
But Youngso's voice is all guy, all grown up. He's maybe 20. Adult, right?
So I am reassured that I can fangirl Youngso and fall in love.
Phew! Cuz...look and listen. And fall in love. Ya?
This pic! For real, Youngso? You were born this way?
Youngso's own... Like a Star
Every morning now, Youngso starts my day.
I'm a little crazy with Youngso's percussing on his guitar.
I find it...stimulating. I like to watch that hand talent.
I feel it. Youngso touch.
With or Without You cover.
Youngso is music prolific.
A part of an odd, great group, Hoppipolla. Collabs with those bandmates. Solos. Solo erformances.
All sorts of covers of great songs.
All over YouTube.
Crazy for the beat Youngso puts on his instrument...
I have a Youngso Guitar Playlist, the few I've gathered so far
...on my Meme Dreams YouTube channel. Where all my curated music so far lives.
Musings one night...
I think of BTS's Taehyung as a centre of my Mischief creation, so this thought...
If my Kpop world obsession had a circus, Taehyung would be the Ringmaster.
Yep. I can see it.
Tae's sweet, but essentially an in-charge creative.
With the ability to juggle multiple levels of action.
With genius. And joy.
Tae running his fond gaze over the crowd...
Leaving us mesmerized, hypnotized.
And, reaching outside BTS talent, because I do...
I'd be somewhere watching B.I get his act together.
Something edgy. Maybe a sword guy.
He'd like us on the edge of our seats.
B.I amazing to watch in creative mode, I imagine.
Shhh He'll snap at you if you distract him.
RM in charge of how it all runs. Because he's got the vision and the smarts and inclination to...handle stuff.
Who else, is doing what?
Well we know Jungkook does high wire.... (Euphoria, eh?)
Jin and Jimin outside, charming the people making their way in. Keeping everyone happy.
J-Hope putting the dancers through their last rehearsal.
And Suga, looking after the sound, tweaking perfection.
Get it right...
It was a circus night of entertainment action for me.
Good music, exciting performances.
And Taehyung running the whole shebang faultlessly.
Inspired by the energy of love pouring his way...
Taehyung, centre of the Mischief universe.
Of this 3 ring circus that is my mind. Random ding.
If I got snapped at by B.I, I would go find Zico.
He'd be having fun somewhere, with his guys.
Zico would go warm up up the crowd.
Get us hyped for the action...
Suga's Agust D shows his MV making skills. This's a hell of a drama! For a song. Suga rap.
This could be the third ring. In my three ring circus. Midnight show...
The theatrical distraction I was talkin about.
These guys do whole stories...
A new one and an "old" one (6 years).
Gotta get Monsta X's new tune up. cuz...
It's amazing! Rush Hour
And cuz I'm sharing a link to this Running Commentary page with a buddy and I want them to have a little fun with Joohoney and the boys, eh?
Cuz, they are FUN! And hot. Rush Hour
Crank it up, J!
I am a huge fan of this group. One of my choreo favs. And they throw themselves at their work. Love that.
Just found this one and love it. a lot! Rush
Shownu and Wonho in it.
Wonho now gone from Monsta X, but cute here.
And Shownu still out for a while.
Let's send him good vibes.
The rest of the guys do just fine without him (these guys are so fine), but still. Who doesn't want Shownu, eh?
Dang, I'd love to be the girl in the food truck, eh?
Says the fangirl...
This one btw is on my Top Ten page, for the jumps in it.
I'm high with them...
Unprecendented flooding, tossing us out of our community for days, weeks.
(Another reason to cry. Dang)
But does that stop me from listening to my music, and searching for new? Nah...
Definitely playing comfort songs.
So lots of Hoppipolla and Gaho.
Monsta X for theatrical distraction.
And Zico rap and B.I's new album...
Out today! Excited!
Gaho's album, but here just two versions of Right Now. Both good. So so good. One MV for mood, this.
The other to watch him make his way through it, up close.
Angst to excitement... That push to the end. Dang.
I am so impressed by the talents who show range and persistance to get their work out there.
Gaho does that. Originals, covers, collabs...
I have so much respect for his skills, his being, his cool...
Smitten. And this song! omg
Straight to my Crescendo Playlist (still private eh?)
From B.I's new album...
Love this one Buddy Buddy.
Lots of close ups.
B.I rules my screenshot captures. Love B.I
But don't ask how many pics I have. Fangirl secrets. (Lots)
And title track Cosmos.
B.I so sweet and sincere with fierce rogue just under the surface.
The focus.... Love his voice, his rap. ya
Let's just pop Gemini's new one here... Mellow. Although Gemini has a hard-knock-life vibe. Hmmm
Woodz in this! And some she/her I don't know
Ha Hyunsang, all of 23 years old, blowing the lid off my top with his covers and originals.
And its a mystery.
Not a mystery! Wild talent in an odd self contained slow human form.
This morning another find of his, an original. In a collab with...jeezus, Youngso. A bandmate from Hoppipolla.
Now that I've adjusted to slow, and melody again, and sweetness, and following crescendos and the song structures that create emotional responses.... A run of songs added to my playlists.
Someone I know calls these songs sad.
Not me. Although...they do make me cry uncontrollably.
Because they are so genius. Am I overreacting? Oh yes. My whole body is in an overreactive state. Now.
What? No Hoppipolla on my musings page?
Definitely showed up on my new Covers page, saying they have changed my life... yep
And on my chakras page, with a comment on anticipation.
So here. Let's get them all over Mischief, just like they are all over my YouTube mixes right now.
YouTube is so...accommodating.
Let's do Your Ocean, because it just hit a million views, which for this low key group, is a whole bunch.
I'll-vocalist, keyboardist, leader, songwriter
Ha Hyunsang- vocalist, guitarist, songwriter
Kim Youngso-guitarist, Maknae (youngest)
Warning. Slow. Slow down to listen...
Ha Hyunsang, this morning's find. Not even an mv. Just the music.
I had to look up who wrote it. Wanted to be sure it was this talent's work. Hyunsang and Youngso.
Made it onto my Soma Move playlist.... That beat.
What is this shift in mood and music choices?
Looking for soothing? I am mixing it up, from lively dance stories, to hard (Korean version) rap, to...this.
It's all resonating to my centre.
Everything resonates to my centre.
Makes my chakras spin...
I'll do a couple more. Ha Hyunsang covers.
This one, If the World Was Ending, barely registered the first time. It's so...mild sounding, for its message. But the more I heard it , the more I reached for it. There is something so affecting about this human expressing.
I am crazy for him singing the line "the night we went drinking...and stumbled in the house and didn't make it past the kitchen".
Thinking of times in my life where the kitchen was as far as we got, and imagining this young guy.
So sweet, but...believable.
Believable cuz I'm talent smitten. Causing mischief.
Same with Hyunsang covering Post Malone's Goodbyes
The authenticity he brings to this, as well as the others he covers, or creates, while looking like a still life angelic.
I think I'm going to put him and his whole group on my Love At First Sight page. Later. Heeey love you guys!
Crazy for talent. And drive, determination.
It's here. Hyunsang and his guys, Hoppipolla
With my gratitude for some time cell soothing.
Lots of covers, lots of new soloists.
Or listening again to ones I"ve run across. Or put on a playlist.
So, the music slower.
But tonight, a couple on my No Pain No Gain playlist.
NCT, a 3rd Gen big group that is broken down usually into subunits.
I follow Taeyong, wherever he is.
I could do a page on Taeyong...
I've been listening to and watching this vid for months. Love it. For the music, dance, wardrobe changes, sets...
So much to watch. And Taeyong and the guys.
That's Taeyong, blonde, at 10 seconds and throughout.
And probably the first NCT I heard. Resonance with all of them. Music change ups. Change ups all over...
Good dance... Taeyong at 25 seconds. Blond here too.
One talented artist friend gifting me a surprise painting of my G. Like he was...
My response? Gratitude laced with tears streaming. Get a grip...
Another friend spiraling in her mind affects.
Im going to post some of my fav songs full of angst. For her.
Cuz, I said, there's a whole swath of people you'd love.
Just immersed in hurt and angst.
I mean, B.I here...
(please I hope you have some respite. all of you...)
B.I so beautiful in this pic. Can't you just be happy that you look like that love?
Dang. It makes me happy that you are so...all that.
Here's Hoppipolla, cover I'm So Tired
The music so good, you don't know whether to sink from the lyrics.
Or lift with the voices, the song...
I LOVE Ash Island.
I'm alone and sad, You fucked my world.
Eh? That kind of suffering... Fall
NLive's Maybe I Wanna Die
Might as well sing about it.
All those shit thoughts we have that keep a cycle of distress happening.
Get out into the meadow...
Distract first, then find the thought, the feeling, that brings relief. Then...
A lot of art, expression, springs from angst, anger, distress.
So, feel bad? Create, eh.
I mean, there's origami. And shibari
And chicken curry.
And any song off B.I's Waterfall album
OMG so much fxxking angst.
So happy to hear that your online concert recently brought you actual happiness, Hanbin dear one.
Jeezus. Nothing like manifesting creativity to lift that cloud of meaninglessness and sadness for a while.
Love you. my friend.
So I'm offering up companions.
Poets of angst. Songwriters, dancers, singers, musicians, perormance, theatre.
Your people... Look at them. Makes you wanna join this angst group. Ya? Ddeang. I would.
I have! :)
I have to. Post this pic for you. And me.
Ash Island a new guy for me. MV below..
Ya, he's sort of a full on adult, despite his look in this photo.
His music... Love this mv. Sci Fi stuff. Error
Ash Island has amazing tattoos. I'll take a pic.
But present in the vid.
His scripted arm, and wolfed neck. ..
I want to post some of the soloists. More. Cuz YouTube is picking up a new direction of mine.
Sending up more covers now, of songs I know.
In a group there's usually a songwriter or two. Or three like Stray Kids' 3Racha. Talent!
With performers on their own, more reach outs for good songs? Good music to cover?
I'll post a couple of my current favs.
Gaho again, for sure. And hey, Woojin!
And I'm working on a page that's the music story of my summer tattoos. My firsts....
That scratch is satisfying.
Let's start with Gaho in a collab with Woo Jin, former member of Stray Kids
Happy to find Woojin! Missed him!
Watched him in the Stray Kids debut show.
And Gaho, I'm so impressed...
Cover, Drivers License. Listen... Watch.
Wait! A divergence because of Woojin. Not covers. His own? Will have to research
But for now, just enjoying....
A short explore, bouncing off Woojin with Gaho.
Woojin is frighteningly good looking.
I'm not scared. I'm spellbound.
And I love this choreography. Still Dream.
And an MV... Ready Now.
His song? I'll check. Later
Okay, covers... There's lots. And a it's deadly fusion.
Because these are some of my fav eastern performers covering some familiar western music.
With moody moods that the west is so good at.
Deadly in a good way tho, eh? Affected...
But I get caught by surprise, when hearing for the first time.
And want to fall to my knees and cry. Right there on the street, walking in the fall warm sun.
Who will pick me up?
Here's these two again, in their own covers of great music.
Kim Woojin with Lewis Capaldi's Before You Go...
And Gaho, Halsey's Without Me
I have become a huge fan of Gaho's! His voice, his voice range...
I'm going to start a page, just for covers, cuz I just listened to Gaho covering Post Malone's song, Goodbyes...
Gaho can say fuck-it-all with Post Malone gusto as convincingly as he can croon love....
I did it. On the spot. Mischief Music Covers
Close to an edge of excitement today. Tipping...
Tickets to an online concert tonight, with Kim Hanbin.
You know, B.I! Singer, dancer, songwriter, producer....
Ya that's him in the photo. You're welcome.
(As the fans say, when they share)
B.I, as I am discovering since June, is a powerhouse of initiatives. Songs, song collabs, choreography, fan times, Tiktoks, Instagram, photoshoots, liasons with brands, running his new company, looking to start up a new idol group, ongoing philanthropic projects.
It's a challenge to keep up.
But ID's, his fan group name, do their best to post ever-little-thing B.I does, on Twitter. Every morning when I look there's new stuff.
This guy is determined. And talented.
In one of my Twitter retweets I describe Hanbin...passion drives genius. Cuz he's got that.
Glad he came to spend downtime in our little corner of nature here this summer.
Oh I haven't told you that story yet?
But since then I notice I have divided my mischief time into Before B.I and After B.I.
B.I's combo of focus, drive, and brain-lit-inspired energy is familiar to me. I've lived with a version of it.
Leaves me breathless.
B.I's blond for the concert tonght! Everyone is so excited!
I don't even know how to stream it... lol
But I'm determined.
BTW I did it. It was a blast.
As I said. B.I intense and loose. So, cool.
Melancholy and angst. B.I's poetic mind dishes up words and phrases, feelings of heartache, loneliness, loss.
B.I's tattoo trailing across his chest....Nihilism
The belief that life is meaningless.
However, his touching responses to his fans are full, of meaning. And warm feeling.
The photo below is just to show his tattoo, eh?
But, he is a beauty...
And my Twitter has gone crazy. CRAZY! With B.I photos, and edits. From the concert. Kim Hanbin gaining traction with all his work. Work ethic rewarded. For bright lights like B.I.
Go! And don't stop now... Momentum.
This song was released Oct 1, a remix of my fav illa illa, a collab with two musicians. And Afgan will be part of his live concert.
Lost at Sea, English lyrics, in B.I's style. Melancholic.
Just makes me want to hold him until his cells sparkle like mine do...
Hey Hanbinnie, wot you doin after the concert?
...says my young fangirl self.
Have I shown you my illa illa tattoo? Committed. Beside the waves...
More B.I on my Love at First Sight page.
And on my Running Commentary page one...
Cuz he's permeating.
A story. Soooo fun! Coldpay cool flavour. With our BTS stars lighting up the action!
Love Chris's lively eye contact! Connections throughout. Mmmmm
Good job guys! Let's do this in full screen...
This is brilliant! Fun, good song, a collab worth the work.
I just imagine the connections they all made during this. With each other.
Can't help but think the BTS bonded vibe, bringing a collected talent of experience and freshness,
impacted Coldplay and Chris...
And I'm sure Chris's and Coldplay's vision and the high tech result was inspiring to the 7. I'm impacted.
What a post to start a page with, but the first page ran out of space.
(What does that even mean on a scrolling page. Can't they just go forever? Like a Costco receipt?)
Anyway, this post will drop to the bottom. Soon...
I had just added BTS to Running Commentary page one. They were at the 2021 UN, special envoys, recognized by the South Korean government as having a significant economic and cultural impact, along with all of KPOP.
BTS, the faces of the global phenom of Hallyu, the Korean wave of culture, spreading like a good meme.
Definitely a Rap Monster meme dream.
This post is an update on my Chakra Spinning spiraling journey.
Jeezuz, no wonder I'm fxxking dizzy.
Hey Zico, can I hold your arm, love?
It's hard to describe the alertness, aliveness, sweetness
that I feel from arches to scalp.
My brain feels like what marshmallows taste like.
Fucking hell. It's wildly sweet. And soft.
Day or night, music or quiet, whatever the position, action.
It's a background note when I'm interacting with humans.
Humans in the flesh I mean, with me, or accessed on some device. Hello?
This constant cell shiver tho, drives me toward a focus that gives it attention and expression.
Daydreams, soma dance, myyoga, watching music videos are spaces of time in the present moment, for me.
Noticing where I'm feeling it, tracking it like a warm snowstorm.
Follow the music, immerse, travel a path with heart, breathlessly.
Watching guys etc sing, move, play instruments, perform, feels causal.
But with or without the focuses I experience the excited cells anyway.
Hey! I can move the excitement of the cells with my attention, with my breath, with soma moves. It's a trip!
I gotta copy this to my Chakra Spinning page.... Skills!
Why Zico here? Zico a comfort. But, also...
My cells are on the move when I look at him. Watch him. Hear him.
He laughs. His sideways glances are heart stopping.
He's magnetic. And my cells respond.
The the cells in me, the I's in me. Move. Love.
Hang on. I'll add some music.
Zico and his music is getting scattered all over Mischief, the little brat. So, this... Pride and Prejudice
I love to hear the talk. At the beginning on this version. I like the lyrictranslations with a song sometimes. But don't get too distracted keeping up with the words.
Cuz it's the music, his rap... His look
And B.I all over too. These two. For reasons...
I chose this song of B.I's because it's music to move to.
If I read his lyrics, I feel it differently. B.I appeals to his followers with this kind of life-as-angst kind of mood.
Makes me want to take him...well, that's another story.
For now, just this.
Off to soma move, or daydream...
I'll take these guys with me. Come on...
No jazz girl. Not you. I think someone's calling you.
Thanks for the music. Bye.
And back to Mischief home, Start again.
Or got to my Grief Journey to understand a Mischief background note...
Or connect to that Covers page, a current direction, in my Searches
Most pages here on Meme Dreams are compiled from several different sites I've created over the years. All pulled together here, in various stages.
The most recent page is "Mischief", a journal of mood and music as I make my way through a grief journey. Missing loved ones. Especially G.
I love ya.
I wanna get down...
If the wrong video plays, refresh your page.
In psychology, there are two popular conceptions of happiness: hedonic and eudaimonic.
Hedonic happiness is achieved through experiences of pleasure and enjoyment,
while eudaimonic happiness is achieved through experiences of meaning and purpose.
That's a little simplified :) but a useful distinction.
Not pursuing happiness as in waiting, creating it as in now.
A greeting card with this quote, found early, followed me through the years. Chosen as a guiding principle. Lifelong...
For me, there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length - and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.
Carlos Castaneda, The Teachings of Don Jaun: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge
Oh ya? You've done that? Well...kind of. In a relaxed kind of traverse. That counts?
