Where does Pharrell's confidence come from?

Where does Pharrell Williams find the motivation to make songs sounding like small boxes and soft balls bouncing on them? (That's how they sound!!) Maybe he just has uniquely large reserves of confidence. The kind of confidence that seems like it comes from nowhere. Some day, some random person from […]

Dancing is all about feeling the vibe

Good dancing isn't when you do the correct moves, it's when people can see that you care about what you're doing. That's why "But i can't dance" is a meaningless excuse because the only thing you need is all the confidence in the world, then whatever you do will look good. You're not bad at dancing, […]

The second wave of indie creation

Half a year ago I talked about how sampling is cool and speeds up creative work, while AI is also cool and can speed up non-creative work, and that these together lets you make cooler art faster which is a win-win that eliminates all "quality vs quantity" concerns inside your artist brain. Good art […]

Additional thoughts about Red Velvet

8 months ago I said some things the K-pop group Red Velvet, and now I need to say some more things about the K-pop group Red Velvet. Last time I talked about how innovative they are, how nice Wendy seems to be, and how mysterious and paranormal Irene seems to be after I've watched funny compilation […]

Why Banjo-Kazooie looked too good for a 90s game

The image above is a screenshot from the room "Water Switch Area" in the Nintendo 64 game Banjo-Kazooie's overworld, taken on the site noclip.website. Banjo-Kazooie had very nice-looking graphics, and here's a question: How could it have that? It's strange, because Nintendo 64 was a technically limi […]

Top 100 K-pop songs by girl groups (2009-2022)

This is the definitive, and absolutely objective, list of which K-pop girl group songs I personally like the most. To make this list I spent huge loads of time listening to all sorts of K-pop EP:s, albums and singles, which gave me a lot of insights about timelessness, trends and greatness in music, […]

Grimes, never get a publicist!

Grimes stopped having a publicist and suddenly the news is fun! There is a world where the news look like this, and there’s a world where it doesn’t, and if publicists want the second one of these, I will fight them until I win, because I don’t want a world without Grimes’ wackiness: […]

DREDD VELVET

Three years ago, Canadian “Memphis” rapper Freddie Dredd used Seulgi from Red Velvet as a cover image for his single “Witness”. It sparked life into some people that wanted to complain, and they even went so far as accusing Freddie Dredd of calling Seulgi “names”. Freddie disputed this, […]

Top 5 JISOO teaser videos

There seems to be only 5 of them, and I wanted to give them a proper and honest ranking! But mostly I made this post because I wanted to talk very briefly about the hype for BLACKPINK’s new song. The k-pop group has been posting teasers and trailers for a week now to create anticipation for their […]

The Nintendo 64 graphics were better (Why perfection is the opposite of creativity)

First of all, this isn’t any “The times were better back then” nostalgia. Yes, I grew up with Nintendo 64, but I also grew up with GameBoy Advance and I don’t have the same love for those graphics. So now I’m done with the self-deceptive lies and can go on with the text. I’ve talked abou […]

$ATSUKI gives hope to an upside-down world

I listened to $ATSUKI’s song “이랴이랴!”/“War” (ft. Lil Cherry) and I just felt that no one is themselves as much as $ATSUKI on this song. Speaking on that, when was the last time you were yourself? I made a remix of the song’s two version because I got such good energy from it: […]

Nick Robinson is the best storyteller on YouTube

Nick Robinson makes documentaries about things I’m not very interested in (like Mario’s hair, Domino’s App feat. Hatsune Miku and Super Monkey Ball), so how come I just watched them all? Because he’s an amazing storyteller! Buying a “Wrinkly Pikachu” sticker doesn’t sound very intrigui […]

Launching my site in Japanese because of Japanese music

You can now read kbrecordzz in Japanese! https://kbrecordzzjp.wordpress.com I’ve written a lot about Japanese music on kbrecordzz.com, like Mami Yamase, SCANDAL (again), Seiko Oomori (again, again), Jun Togawa & Yapoos (again, again, again, again & again (the flagship of this site)), Wink, Zoomgal […]

The day Girls’ Generation and David Letterman met (and what it says about music)

I watched so many K-pop music videos this winter, on a mission to learn how they can be so captivating and awesome. It was fun. And then I thought: Why not watch the rest of the world’s music videos too? I started doing that, but… I quickly learned that, for some reason, the Western mindset of […]
