See, I like the music Lady Gaga makes, I just can't stand her as a person. She's the worst sort of attention whore imaginable, and on top of that, her lyrics scream "I WAS AN UGLY AND UNPOPULAR CHILD SO NOW I HATE MEN. HATE HATE HATE HATE THEM. IF YOU ARE A MAN LISTENING TO THIS AND YOU ARE NOT GAY, I AM LAUGHING AT YOU FOR GIVING ME MONEY BUT KNOW THAT I HATE YOU AND WISH YOU WOULD DIE."
Wow..I never thought I'ld see the day... it's almost touching, I actually agree with something Bolvar said!

What is it with people double posting more and more frequently these days? Do they not understand that a bump doesn't have to include a double post? Is it so difficult to take one extra step to keep things nice and neat?

I think we need to re-examine the intent of this rule.

If it's my thread and I'm updating it periodically, I don't think a double-post is out of order.

Maybe make it so double-posting in the same thread in a 24 hour period is against the rule or something... but in this case, I really don't think anyone would accuse me of spamming here.

It's the principle of the thing. If I personally take the time to bump things properly with "Edit(#)(timestamp):" then I don't think it's all that difficult for anyone else to do the same. Otherwise we give people the impression that double and triple posting around here is a wise idea, eventually cluttering the whole place with an endless stream of introspective nonsense.

The rule to follow things by though is the 2 week mark (give or take 12 hours). If it has been 2 or more weeks than there's no problem with a bump. If it's less than that, well then copy/pasting a previous post with the new information attached in edit isn't a big deal.

To be honest I've been hellishly lenient about this (I've assed people on maybe 5 occasions in the entirety of being a mod/admin) so I'm not going to back down on the decision (and contrary to popular belief this isn't because of my taking things out on people I have ideological differences with...I actually like you since you're willing to engage people respectfully for the most part). In any case it's a 3 day assing, and after that you can return to watching your regularly scheduled programming.

Yeah, a doublepost is a doublepost when the previous post was posted 24h ago.

No point on bashing Bolvar and making him lose his awesome avatar just because he bumped his own thread.

Also, we all know no matter how many times you edit a post, the topic is still down, and no one will ever notice it.

Editing is ok, too, but the period shouldn't be of 2 weeks, 4 days at most.

PS: By the way, I'm still addicted to that nananana song of the first post. Thanks god I haven't checked other songs. Damn you for doing this to me, Bolvar !!

I have no idea what the timestamp edit thing is. But there's no way I'm gonna memorize that synax.

Those were cute but not really my style. As for Korean acts, I like Seo Taiji, Witches, and Park Ji Yun. They may not be as cool looking but I heart them

When Korean pop stars watch too much Lady Gaga:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vz7Gstx5ogk

The result is an obvious ripoff. Kind of sad to see, really.

I prefer this one better - sure, they're like a dozen Asian Britneys, but what's not to like about that?

Now that you mention it, it wouldn't surprise me if Gaga ripped her off.

Also, I want to party with this guy:

Yeah Gaga has took alot of styles from Asia and kinda went overboard with it lol. I mean a meat dress.... Gaga just took the entire style out of context and made her own thing with it.

Gaga's music is ok used to be alot better but tbh i like almost every song from Korea and Japan lol.

I have to say it kinda anoyes me when people say stuff like look there copying from Gaga etc when they have been doing it for god knows how long now lol.

Yeah the visual shock or "Visual Kei(style in Japanese)" has been around since the mid 80's as a form of ultra rebellion from the severely conservative japan of the 80's. Its morphed into something stupid now.

Indeed. That video is insanely awesome.

And now - Korean girls rolling gangsta style.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjrPJBTlzfg&feature=sub

I'm still trying to figure out why they mix in English lyrics in almost all of their music.

I'm also trying to figure out if this would be more or less hard core than Hello Kitty covering Tupac.

Koreans and Japanese put English in there songs because to them its cool and sometimes cute which is what they all love . And 2NE1 seem to know quite alot about English i think one or two of them are fluent in the language.

Foreign things are cool, even to Americans. Kanji tattoos and french/italian/spanish catch phrases are used here for the same reason English is seemingly randomly thrown in there.

A lot of them know English to a respectable degree, but it's certainly not a part of their everyday speech. Hearing an English lyric all of a sudden draws attention and places emphasis on the verse/lyric that's being sung at the moment.

That makes sense.

I always thought people who got Asian tattoos were taking a big chance. If you don't speak the language, a tattoo artist with a twisted sense of humor could ink up something pretty foul.

This one's in English.

Kpop vids come with 150% of the daily recommended amount of crazy. Which is why they are so awesome.

I knew that 2NE1 knew a large amount of the English language probs because when they include it in there song they actually pronounce it correctly.

They are a great band i have to say .

If you don't like this video about 0:46 in, there's something wrong with you.
