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.
I've just had a fascinating heart fluttering experence with a real human. A human guy.
Hmmm altho I guess all my fangirling here on Mischief is about real guys.
But seriously, from this distance, across time and space, all these talents, these beauties that I love...
They might as well be holograms. Fictional. Imagined. Created.
Instead, today, a surreal dialogue with a guy I could reach out and touch.
Oh wait. Except, he's not here either.
Dang. Life as I know it.
Hmmm who's on YouTube tonight?
Imagine, YouTube being a settle-for experience. After all the pleasyre I get there.
Just shows an actual human has power like that. powers that be. where is he.
I get to post a B.I vid! New version of a recently released mini album, Cosmos.
This one an invite to 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 summit, the up, the down.
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...
And 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 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.
Right now, my memories strong for my 30 year he-ro, G,
A talent, hedonic and eudaimonic, in the key of G

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.

Christmas is such a global phenom. So many expressing the Xmas common themes...good will, , family and friends, christmas decorations, Santa, classic songs

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...

So Christmasy... 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 it full length - and there I travel, looking breathlessly.
Carols Cstaneda, 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?
