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.
And there's Running Commentary page one, and fall months and December 2021 on page two, with sequential-but-random musings...
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 adoring fans of these guys... Concentrated bliss.
Zico body rolls. Hey hey, need I say more.
And a night of my Bachata Ya playlist, on my Meme Dreams YouTube channel.
Wanted the warmth of Bachata. Warm, provocative. Good music.
First, one of my first bachata couples. Favs
Love this... Kike and Nahir You Are the Reason
majestic and cute, both
Another one, so cute
And also one of my first Bachata couples, Cornel and Rithoka
And want to post this, in a cafe, one of my first too
And I must...Bacahata at its best with Marco and Sara. Stunning talents...
Can't think...living in a bliss state. But, music always. Tonight...Randomding
One of my favs. Zico. In his early 2nd Gen group, Block B
This vid shows up on my YouTube mix tonight. Nillili Mambo
So fun. So bad. Just this tonight. Zico..
Look at him! Wotta guy. Wotta cool guy.
Hey but I worked on my Drama page! The actors, the movies, the series. Posted!
A few favs on there. Lee Min Ho, Ji Chang Wook, EXO's DO, Lee Yi Kyung, Jun Ji-hyun, Dylan Wang...
But really, I've watched so many.
So many more to talk about. When the timing is right...
I listen every day to a playlist I created, called !!Today.
(On my YouTube channel, Meme Dreams.)
It has over 200 songs on it.
232 today, just checked.
Songs I figure I could listen to every day and it would be a good thing.
232x4min av= 928m= about 12 hours solid listening to get through them all.
Which Ive never done.
The first two on that long list are Kim Youngso, guitar guy.. Such a fan!
The next two are Hoppipolla and Ha Hyunsang.
So my first four everyday come from the sweet and talented group, Hoppipolla.
I start my day, with these beings...
Like coffee every day.
However far I get with my 200+ in a day,
I hear these first four...
Late Night Movie. Love watching this!
Ha Hyunsang throws himself into it. So cute.
A haze for so many reasons...traveling to places I've never been
Having experiences I've never had.
Living in 3 time zones simultaneously.
But one thing that was constant. My music listening didnt stop.
On my walks, at the beaches, in my room in the garden...
Every now and then I would freeze, thinking...am I using data? Roaming?
This musician was at a local Garlic Festival in Eagle Hawk Neck, Tasmania, when I was there.
I had to leave in the middle of this song, but it was so good I tracked it down.
Claire Anne Taylor. Hold Me, Darling. A great Valentine blues song...
I share it, with love...
Hmmm Valentines day came...and went.
My love level upped.
I feel more love...
Soooo wut music?
This. Lullaby. Impacted me so much...
The music, not the message.
Didnt know what it was saying when I got hooked...
Meant something else entirely for me.
An experience I was having, in my city of Vancouver.
Living in the present moment, for hours, walking on the downtown streets...Robson, Denman.
This song takes me there.
I listen daily......
And picked these two vids to show the kids. Fun. Dancing. Tricks...
That means that our day of universal love is coming.
The day when we are allowed to, expected to!, show our warm feelings for the humans around us.
It's a practice for me anyway. A 365 days a year heppening.
But not necessarily expressed to the beings who elicit my love feelings.
I will suss out some romantic songs.
Get the magic of love-expressed in music form.
Look for last dance songs, for crescendo songs...
I'll be back.
For now tho, I can drop in ILYSB, with the Rose.
I love you so bad....
Soooo sweet. Like a Valentine candy. Give me...
With this one. Love Me Like You Do
with this warm group Hoppipolla. A cover
Definitely a valentine. Ya
Just how I feel
I'll let you set the pace cuz I'm not thinking straight.
And I'll get started on a valentine playlist that starts hot.
Or ends hot.
Ateez has done it again. For me...
What can I post here?
To express this present phenom...
Treasure, 4th Gen stars.
This is a sweet song.
I wanna be your boy...
Pure guy vibe.
In young energy.
I love to hear the focus and confidence, coming from young and beautiful beings.
Treasure, a force to be reckoned with.
Saw a pic of the group posing with GDragon.
Of course,,,GD would know...
I've made a lot of playlists. I use them for sequence, for categorizing into KPop Gens, and individual groups and soloists.
And several playlist of favs.
So I can go for hours in a day, listening.
And I always take time to watch. Visuals...
So... a fav this week is Pentagon's Feelin' Like. Just new out.
Another great group who throws themselves at the dance. So good! The moves, the guys, the lyrics lol...
Pentagon fringing on my playlists, then a bit of focus charges my interest. Pursue...
I love looking up a group, or solo and getting the goods on them.
Their talaent, their position, their ethnicity...their height.
What cereal they like for breakfast.
Although my she/her being responds directly to them as the adults they are, to get the full effect...
a lot of them, their brains are still forming. Right?
It goes on well after we are fully formed. (Beautifully formed.)
Especially the fourth genners.
So glad they are of age tho, so I can fully appreciate their skills, their looks, their moves. Their energy and male fierceness. (Oh stop)
I am just awestruck. With BTS.
They are a brilliantly talented wedge into the world.
Well, into me for sure... Or...I'm into them.
I am just falling over from my admiration for them, each of them, all of them.
If I could recommend one group that could show the accomplished, varied talent of the Korean music phenom. that is BTS. A good, global consciousness. Hallyu
(It is no mistake that BTS is the most well known Korean Group. They have worked HARD! And their talent. determination, and reach-out is getting to us. All over.)
A group for the people. A class act, excellent, warm, human.
So many performances!
This one "Idol", psychedelic and social commentary. Fun.
You can't stop me lovin myself...
Want more? Go to BTS, but they are all over Mischief...
Over the 7-8 years they've been one, BTS has nurtured, fostered, encouraged individual creative processes in each of them.So each of them has solo stuff (Like Taehyung, alpha wave vibe guy). Or collabs with each other (Like the rap line Ddaeng). Or collabs outside the magic circle.
I am jumping up and down over the BTS presence on our world stage.
Oh ya I am army guys. Ya got me....
I get to post a B.I vid! New version of a recently released mini album, Cosmos.
This one on Global Spin. Just released Jan 4th. With a band. Good one Hanbin. Nineteen
And Hanbin moving freestyle, like he does.
Unless he's choreographed. That's good too.
"In the latest episode of Global Spin, a performance series spotlighting global music and international artists, K-pop artist B.I represents South Korea with an atmospheric performance of "Nineteen." B.I is the first Korean artist to perform on Global Spin."
B.I getting back to his own black hair?
I'm celebrating in anticipation.
My fav of course.
Here, Taemin. Considered one of KPop's dance stars...
A performer from SHINee and Super M, who often performs on his own. In those performances Taemin can seem ummmm gender fluid.
Love this one, Advice. Taemin here...decisive.
One of the qualities in a performer/performance that I find magnetic. Attractive. Go Taemin.
Seriously. I am dumbfounded at what we have been through ove the past year.
The message? Get the fxxk ready.
To get up and get out.
To lose everything.
Or see people you care for/know lose everything.
And to see/hear what people are willing to go through for each outher.
B.I would get this, Metaphorically.
Although I think he's had a petty good year, driving his creativity. Thank the stars.
Hey B.I. Looking forward to your Global Spin vid. Tomorrow,,,
(Mmmm ya. Nineteen, nice one Hanbin. Live band...way to go!)
2022, Eat well, sleep well, my friends.
And keep a bag ready beside the door.
Start the year off with last year's first guy for me, Taeyang of Big Bang.
But this vid just him. I liked it on my playlists.
The first time I stopped to watch I was entranced.
I. was. entranced.
Made me want to reach through and wrap my arms around him...
Eyes, Nose, Lips Enjoy.
And for a throughline of friendship,
A BTS vid with pretty much just Jimin and Taehyung.
These guys have to get along for the group to function. Function well. And they do.
BTS has a grip on that. Friends
This vid like a mini doc, a curated piece. Sweet, these two.
I'd like to sit between them on a front bench car seat.
Like we used to have... On a long drive to somewhere.
Mischief project, no sign of it ending.
Being here is so satisfying...
No end of good music, beauty, passion, inspiration.
Thankful for a year of both distraction and focus.
If I thought there was a let up of my deep cell responding....there's not.
Today a day of intense emotion, from love to mountain screaming.
And there's no mountain.
Wait. That drive yesterday over the mountain passes....
The up, the down, the summit.
Full focus for hours, to stay on the road, keep from sliding right off down the moutainsides.
It's terrifying. I was high all the way.
Natural high. From the sensible choice to stay in the present moment for those hours.
To be aware enough to catch the slightest loss of control. Ready...
As I drove over, relax with the mantra...safe, comfortable, on time.
On the way home aware of the deep cell buzz lighting up my insides, as bright as the ice.
The feeling low keyed terrified mellowed by the sensation of intense pleasure filling my chest and the rest of me.
In the silence. The only sound, the tires on the road and all the cars passing by.
Why is GDragon here? GD has been a constant companion here on Mischief.
He has a steady, excited vibe, committed to cool. So, ready for anything.
Like a hero. There. I said it.
So, we ready. GD and me...
Right now, my memories strong for my 30 year he-ro, G,
A talent, hedonic and eudaimonic, in the key of G
There's more top tens of all kinds...

For now, top ten period.

and GDragon becuz he's so...
Hey want room for one more...dang, who?

Hey Hyunjin, who has worked hard on this talent which is good. Because he gets to fierce up when he moves and dances and I think it's a natural part of him.
Fierce gets an expression...
Hyunjin, from Stray Kids put this together for a special-Artists of the Month, which features dancers and...?
I gotta give cred here to EXO for dance.
EXO was my first immersion in KPop music,
(Besides following Big Bang around at the same time.)
I watched so much of this early 3rd gen group, that I see a lot of what they did in moves everywhere up through the rest of 3rd gen and now 4th gen.
I was super impressed with EXO's precision and whippy moves. And they told stories with their vids...
I immersed. Cohesive group. Expressive. And fun.
That brings us, obviously, to my Top Ten groups with mad dance skills.
Got7 and History , gone now but still enjoying
This is tough because there's Pentagon, The Boyz, 2PM, Super Junior, SF9, SHINee, Enhypen...
They all put a lot into their dance!
Top Ten Singers...
Oh I love this one.
It is unbelievable that there are so many amazing singers, both solo and whole groups of them
I can't even identify the individuals who might dominate in some of the groups.

And Youngso covers Christmas, with his angelic guitar.
Christmas is such a global phenom. So many expressing the Xmas common themes...good will, , family and friends, christmas decorations, Santa, classic songs
So many people around the world doing much the same thing, expressed in different ways, All over.
Good for Christmas to be a magnetic celebration, like English is a magnetic language, taking on expressions, from all over. Universal themes andd well wishes.
Wish you well...
Hey, love this EXO performance....over 12 minutes!
The outfits! Pink shirts, plaid pants, suspenders.
So Christmasy, lol... But, some dreamy vocals in EXO.
Chanyeol, Kai, DO, Chen, Lay, Xuimin, Sehun, Baekyhun, Suho... Wanna read about these guys? Fangirl stuff...
One of my fav sources of info on all these KPop talents.
The gift of Music.
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...

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?
