According to various news reports Yahoo.com is planning to buy Tumblr for 1 Billion dollars.
Phonogram 2: The Breakfast Club -
Tis my article on the second volume of Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie’s Phonogram. Technically it’s a part of HU’s comics and music roundtable, which is my excuse for taking two whole months to write the follow-up I promised when I reviewed the first volume all the way back in February.
Some other “comics and music” articles I’ve enjoyed from the roundtable are this one on Iron Man, this one on Jim Crow, this one on Peanuts, this one on Superman, and this rant(?) on… black metal? MLP: Friendship is Magic? Something like that, anyway.

The other video taking inspiration from BEG’s Abracadabra
Is this way.
‘Money in the Building’ by M.I.B. is my new jam.
Though I have to say that the lyrics to this one make me angry. It’s not even just a “hey you’re hot come home with me it’s nothing serious but it’ll be fun” club song: the singer goes out of his way to make fun of the girl for acting like she’s on a real date. AND, even worse, he can’t even bother to pretend to be charming! Or, in other words, like someone who treats women well! Because that’s too much work when chemistry will take care of it all anyway, am I right?!
And it’s like, really, dude? That’s your whole strategy? Wait around until she’s overwhelmed by your sexy vibes? Why don’t you just drug her, while you’re at it? ….And then he does. (“Here’s another drink. Swallow.”)
In conclusion, one of those times you’re glad the song with the beat you like is in another language so you don’t have to care what it says.
Spring Arrives 2013 -
I made Koganbot a list of my top singles of 2013, and then I made a playlist. It’s mostly K-hip hop, with some pop and RnB. Lots of triumphant piano, strings and horns combined with modern pulse-raising music technologies for a spring-like feeling… or something like that, XD.

Next theme up is Regency Romance. If that’s your thing, you should consider signing up to write for us. Or draw!
Kpop Hearts the 80s II: Nonstop Exercise Mix -
Not entirely Kpop, not entirely 80s, and there are a couple stops and starts. I do use it for exercise, though!
Nine Muses should probably be something else with a faster tempo, and it does get very cheesy and distraught-boyband-y in the middle. But, well…
It scores better on the Turing test than most of my actual IM contacts... -
Can’t get enough of the thrill of talking to an inattentive friend via instant message? Awkward Chatbot will have a halfhearted conversation with you at any time of the day!
I would like to apologize to all my friends for every time I have been distracted or half-present in chat. I’m sorry, guys.
