Movie Review: Crazy Stupid Love

It's been a while since i laughed this much watching a movie.

Crazy Stupid Love is a romantic comedy starting some big names. Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, Julianne Moore, and Emma Stone. Is it just me, or does Emma Stone look just like Lindsay Lohan? For the entire movie i thought it was Lohan.. lol.

The movie is about a father that is struggling with his marriage and tries to take care of his kids. He meets a guy at a bar who tries to help him become a "ladies man".

There are some corny lines, and sappy moments. Yet, the whole feel of the movie was well made, and the creativity of the storytelling was fantastic. I especially enjoyed the exaggerated parts of Gosling picking up girls at a bar. Does that even happen?

New Notification Ringtone: Jessica (SNSD) GG

So in their new song "The Boys" by SNSD, towards the beginning of the song, Jessica says "GG". In gamer terms, it means "good game" - and is often exchanged between players after a video game match. I'm not sure if they used "GG" in that sense, but i thought it was hilarious. So i made a ringtone out of it.

Every time i get an e-mail - my phone goes, GG. GG. GG. !!! HAHAHAH. Download it below if you want to do the same.

App of the Day: Dropbox

Yeah.. get with the program Bronx. Dropbox has been around for a while, but i never felt the need for it until recently. Here's the story.

I get all my music from my phone using an app called Music Junk. It's a crazy app, it pretty much has every song imaginable. It's free, but you will need to download the app outside of the market. Anyways, i usually download maybe 1-2 songs every so often after listening to them on YouTube. But then, i get too lazy to actually hook up my phone to the computer using a USB cable - so i just e-mail the songs to myself using Gmail.

Lately, Gmail has been acting funny and not sending the e-mails. Could be because the file size is too big. So i got Dropbox. Using it is very simple. Upload a file from your phone using the Dropbox App. Then you can either fetch it via their website on your computer, or download their software. It also works vice versa if you need to send files to your phone.

Why didn't you use Dropbox before?

Like many others i was just naive. I had my own thoughts on how the service worked. In any case, it's a great little app that's perfect to save some files that you will need for multiple devices. The free 2GB storage doesn't hurt either.

Tired Face

Chill Friday night with some homies. Is it just me or does everybody in my vicinity have an iphone 4? Statistically iPhone holds only a 27% share of the smart phone market..

Maybe it's all them' Koreans that have iPhones.. it's like a social thing.. just how all Korean girls have a pair of LV bags.

Song of the Day: Brown Eyed Girls - Sixth Sense

BOG's come back with a powerful song. I'm not a huge fan, but i like that they made a comeback with a new vivid song to compete with all the other girl groups coming out.

Song of the Day: Secret - Love Is Move

Is it just me or is the choreography a rip off from their previous few songs (My Boy, Secret)? Anyways, decent song. I was hoping they didn't go for the 70's groove beat. Unfortunately for them, this song will NOT beat SNSD. Bad song choice, bad timing.

Song of the Day: Hyorin - Because it's you at me

If i could sing a duet with any kpop idol, it would be Hyorin from Sista. I just love her unique husky voice. Specifically, she can nail the low notes (high notes is a no brainer), but being able to hit the low notes with power isn't something you see often.

Song of the Day: Big Mama - 체념

Have you ever found a song in your playlist that you've never really paid attention to, and then suddenly found out the lyrics are freakin epic? This song is pretty awesome. It's a breakup song. The artist Lee Young Hyun (part of the group Big Mama) has a big voice.

행복해서 너와의 시간들 아마도 너무 힘들었겠지
너의 마음을 몰랐던건 아니야 나도 느꼈었지만
널 보내는 게 널 떠나 보내는 게 아직은 익숙하지가 않아
그렇게 밖에 할 수 없던 니가 원망스러워 왜 말 안했니 아님 못한거니
조금 보낼 생각하지 않았니 좋아한다면 사랑한다면 이렇게 끝낼거면서 왜 그런말을 했니

널 미워해야만 하는거니 아니면 내탓을 해야만 하는거니
시간을 돌릴수만 있다면 다시 예전으로 돌아가고 싶은 마음 뿐이야
왜 말 안했니 아님 못한거니 조금 보낼 생각하지 않았니
좋아한다면 사랑한다면 이렇게 끝낼거면서 왜 그런말을 했니
널 미워해야 만하는거니 아니면 내탓을 해야만 하는거니
시간을 돌릴수만 있다면 다시 예전으로 돌아가고 싶은 마음 뿐이야

그래 더이상 묻지 않을게 내곁을 떠나고 싶다면
돌아보지 말고 떠나가 눈물은 흘리지 않을께 괜히 마음만 약해지니깐
내게서 멀어진 니 모습이 흐릿하게 보여 눈물이 나나봐
널 많이 그리워할것 같아 참아야만 하겠지 잊혀질수 있도록
다시 사랑같은거 하지 않을래 마지막 사랑은 돌아선 너에게 주고 싶어서
행복하길바래 나보다 좋은여자 만나기를

I was happy, the time i spent with you
Most likely you were in pain
It's not that i didn't know how you felt, i felt it too
I can't get used to letting you go
I hate you for having to leave me

Why didn't you tell me, or couldn't you tell me
Didn't you think of me?
If you were going to break my heart,
Why did you tell me you liked me, you loved me
Must i hate you, or must i hate my faults
If i can turn back time, i want to go back to the past


If you want to leave, i won't hold you back
Leave without looking back
I won't cry because it will just make me weak

Tears are falling from missing you
I will miss you
But i need to hold it in so that i can forget you
I dont' want to love again
Because i want to give you my last love

Be happy, meet someone better than me

가슴이 두근 두근

너를 처음 봐쓸때
너랑 처음 눈이 마줘 처쓸때
너의 목소리를 들어쓸때
내 가슴은 두근 두근

너의 손을 처음 잡아쓸때
너를 내 품애 안아쓸때
너를 바라볼때
내 가슴은 두근 두근

그렇게 사랑하고 해여질때
가슴이 찌저질때
눔물이 나쓸때
내 가슴은 두근 두근

너의 소식을 들어쓸때
너를 못볼때
너를 다시 봐쓸때
내 가슴은 두근 두근

행복할때나, 아플때나 나의 가슴은 두근 두근. 그래, 심장은 두근 두근 거린다. 그게 정상이니까.

Drama Review: Greatest Love (최고의 사랑)

Yoo In Ah, Yoon Geh Sang, Cha Seung Won, and Gong Hyo Jin. "A" list celebrities take over this drama, along side a very long list of special cameos (ie. Lee Seung Gi).

The synopsis. 10 years after a kpop girl group is disbanded, one of the ex-members who has had a miserable reputation for doing the wrong things meets Korea's #1 actor.

Of course, the story isn't that simple (com'on.. it's a K-drama). Too lazy to write all of the other details. What i will tell you is that it's a romantic comedy. I laughed plenty while watching this - and time actually flies while you watch it. In other words, there aren't any boring parts throughout the entire 16 episode series. I remember only fast forwarding through one part.

There isn't much to change for this drama. The male lead was perfect! However, I personally didn't like the female lead. She reminds of someone.. like literally looks almost the same and it freaked me out. I had to go through 2 episodes to settle down. Doesn't she look like the doll Chucky from that scary movie.. ?

Rating: 9/10

Dieting Rule #3: Fatty Foods

Many fitness experts will tell you to cut down on fatty foods such as pizza, hamburgers, etc. What they fail to tell you is why. Some of these "experts" that i've come across at 24 Fitness didn't have great responses.

#1 response was, "Because it's processed fat, and if you eat it - it will just go straight to your love handles"

There is some truth to that. Eating foods with high fat content will not help you loose any weight. But the true reason it's bad for you is because it clogs all of your internal organs. Particularly the liver, which is key to a healthy metabolism. Have you seen what fat looks like in a jar? It's pretty thick.. and it would certainly clog up most unconventional drains. Now imagine that clogging up your liver.

Completely abstaining from fat isn't good either. Your body needs fat for a few different reasons. Particularly to prevent essential fatty acid deficiency. Being moderate in what you eat is important.

나쁜 남자

여자들은 꼭 착한 남자가 좋다고 한다. 하지만 꼭 나쁜 남자한태 넘어간다. 그러고 나서 핑게를 댄다..

"나한태만 나쁘지 않으면 돼"

여자들 참 웃기다.

그래서 남자들은 기역해야할것이 있다. 나쁜척하면서 착하개 구러야한다.. 여자가 해깔리게. 그래야만 승리를 걷을수 있다.

이 행동을 하두 오래 써먹어떠니.. 이재 나두 해깔린다. 난 어떤 남잔가? 오늘 흥미로운 말을 들었다.

"오빠 나빠!" 그런대 어쩜 떡처럼 붙어있는지. 30분 후 이렇게 말햇다. "오빠 너무 착한거 같아."

아~~ 해깔려..

Dieting Rule #2: Green Tea

Some of you who have been following my diet should know that i love green tea. It's not super bitter, and it's very easy to drink with a roast aroma. I began drinking it because i read it helps with loosing weight.

During this summer, i stopped drinking it because it was too hot to even consider brewing a cup. During those 3 months, i noticed a few things. I was getting bloated in the morning, my weight loss discontinued, and i felt tired.

For the past week, (the weather here in California has cooled off) i started drinking my daily cup of green tea - and instantly felt 2 things. One, i feel less bloated - and two, i feel like i'm shedding off lbs again. Although the weight loss could be because of my new workout routine, my body does feel healthier.

Green tea in general is a great drink. According to WebMD here are some of the top reasons why you should drink it on a daily basis.

1. Powerful antioxidants
2. Fights cancer
3. Good for the heart
4. Helps loose fat

Helps you look younger, clears your skin, helps you loose weight, and keeps your heart healthy. Why wouldn't you drink it? In the morning, instead of drinking that cup of joe, why not substitute it for green tea?

Song of the Day: Tamia - Missing You (Cover)

I don't usually post videos of Youtube artists, but this girl is pretty good. She has incredible voice control in the lower notes which is VERY hard to find. To top it off, she hits the right high notes.

Simon Cowell gives the finger to a 14 year old boy

During the show "The X Factor" US version episode 4, Simon Cowell candidly gives a 14 year old performer the middle finger on national TV. Did anyone else catch this? To give a brief background, the 14 year old boy started his performance by calling out Simon saying, "Yo Simon, i see you man.. what is your problem man? Are you serious? You are lucky we aren't in the streets."

This was just an act. It was sort of an intro to his rap song, "Don't look at my mom." I don't think Simon appreciated his antics though. The middle finger was clearly there and Fox aired the show this way.

Was it intentional? I think so. The crowd loved the 14 year old boy, and i think Simon had no choice but to put the boy through to the next round.

Edit: Apparently, this isn't the first time Simon used his middle finger as a gesture. So who knows.. i just think it shouldn't be aired on TV considering the meaning of the gesture here in the US.
