Now wait a minute! Wait a minute! Before some of you start yelling at us, or crying at us, or mumbling at us, about not doing Itaewon Freedom, believe us when we say that we’re really upset about it as well. We love that song. It’s hard for us not to say that it’s not one of our favorite videos of the year. But we made a promise when we started the voting system that we would honor the votes and do them justice. We want to encourage you all to take part in these vids as much as possible, and so it’d be just wrong for us to take the majority vote and toss it because we like another video better. We’ll only refuse to do a video if we really strongly dislike it, or have something against it, but that hasn’t happened yet. If we like the song and you vote for it, then we’ll do it, even if we like another song or video more.
And we’re really strongly opinionated when it comes to online polls, if you couldn’t tell by our post on Rain being snubbed by Time magazine. So, long story short, you vote we choose. In fact, we almost did SS501’s “Love Ya” this week, because – for some odd reason – we received a massive influx of votes for the song, even though it’s quite old now. Hmmm. There must be some fan group out there behind this…
But f(x) won this week. Huzzah! Because we actually really like the song. “Dah Duh Dah Duh Dah” may not win awards for lyrics of the year, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not catchy as hell! On that note, Nu Abo had “NANANANANANANA” as it’s chorus. Is there a pattern forming here? How many other f(x) songs have sounds for lyrics? Anyone?
Also, err, umm. What’s the song about, really? We looked at the lyrics online, and this song supposedly says something along the lines of discovering a guy, and they’re interested in him, and they’re worried for themselves because they like him so much. That’s our best guess. But what does that have to do with Pinocchio? The puppet whose nose grows when he lies, or the puppet who wants to be a real boy. Are they interested in a guy who’s a liar? Or, even weirder, are they interested in a guy who wants to be a real boy…instead of a fake one? The possibilities with the second option are…intriguing. And since when did Pinocchio have Mickey Mouse ears? Who knows. We’re quite confused. We’ll sing the song and Dah Duh Dah Duh Dah around the house, but we’ll have no clue why…
And, yes, for the record, we are in fact six years old, because farts are still funny to us. Call us immature if you like, but for the rest of our lives we will find farts humorous. We totally see ourselves at 90 years old, hobbling down the street, hand in hand, while our other hands are holding our canes, and giggling whenever we hear busses make fart sounds. Sorry if that’s not your style of humor. FART JOKES 4 LYFE!
A few side notes: we were lucky enough to attend the Super Inkigayo event in Jeju last weekend. Our video for it will go up later this week. We posted a few teaser pictures on our Tumblr page, so check that out if you’re curious, or ask the people over at the Jeju Weekly if you can’t wait :D We were lucky enough to speak with Amber from f(x) while we were backstage, and we aaaaaaalmost got her to do the intro for this week’s Music Monday. She was down for it, but management said no. Understandably so, because they didn’t know who we were. For all they know, we could have been asking Amber to say something that would ruin the band’s image, so it’s better safe than sorry. Even cooler, though, is that she said that she knows our videos, and used our Korean Washing Machine video. Booya! But that’s all we’ll say for now. Stay tuned for the full video :D
Anyhow, because Amber was so nice to us, and also because she told us that she wouldn’t get offended by our Music Monday when we warned her about it, we’re more than happy to tell everyone to check out f(x)’s New Album by clicking on the picture to the right here. It’ll ship internationally, so you’ve got no excuse to not buy it. Shazam! And lastly, thanks to Ophelie from Miku Collection for giving Martina the awesome, awesome shirt when she visited from France. Yay! French clothes!
