The heavenly duo that is “Akdong Musician”

It is unlikely for me to review musicians, I’ll make an exception for this unlikely duo who moved me into writing about them.

The duo is called Akdong Musician (AkMu)


So, I was tuning in to MCountdown on MNET while browsing my smartphone. I wasnt really paying attention. It was the EXO comeback episode, but the show was dull, no new sound, artists were just re-making tunes from past popular tracks from hit idols so it was pretty bland. I’m not gonna sugarcoat things, it is what it is.

Then while on tumblr I heard the MC introduce the next performers and a smooth rap came next.

The song that got me was “200%”. The rapper had that smooth playful tone then when the girl’s voice came I was like: who are they???

They’re Akdong Musician, a duo from a contest who were signed by YG Entertainment. There are a million golden voices in the world but this girl is freaking amazing! I want to share her voice even if that sounded totally weird.


Don’t care for YG. I’m a fan of jpop, kpop, french music and western. I’m tellin you guys these two are extra special.

Akdong Musician album is jam packed!

They are unconventional yet their music is heavenly which makes them special. A mix of rap and r&b/pop yet something else.

All the songs in their Album displays lightness and color yet emotions and smoothness.

On stage they aren’t the kind who will play cute and compensate for lack of talent. Your eyes and ears will love them. Listening to them is lik listening to musical instruments being played perfectly.

Check them out. No matter if you’re a teenager or grandparents of teenagers you’ll love them.

They’re no hot and sexy girl groups or pheromone dynamites sexual hunks, but if you’re into quality, original music, you’ll love them.

Happy Father’s Day!

My dad has a huge influence on me, no matter how much i try to deny it. How I see myself, my views on life, my views on health and my interests i got most from him… I look up to him when it comes to sports, health and staying simple. He is a wise man who knows how to have fun and how to be cool. Who knows what he wants in life and his potential and limitations. He taught me how to play chess, how to value math (although he never passed on his math genes onto me…), how to value myself, how to value intelligence and think strategically. He even taught me how to be manly and minimize acting like a girl. He taught me a lot of things, made me realize a lot of things and tried to give me advice on a lot of matters in life which I sometimes disagree with for some of it does not suit my personality and deviant nature.

It made me think, maybe I fail as a girl because of him… That I got my rowdy, never-stay-put attitude from him after all. No matter how much I would like to think I took after my mom, I’m much more like my dad than I’d like to think (my scent says so). I put value on my youth and body more than a normal person does… and I AM becoming more of a health freak since I stepped into my 20’s.

Thank you God for giving me Papa Ed. I wasnt mature enough before to appreciate the mindset he’s given me. He raised me properly, his father, my lolo, raised me properly too… he gave me the right foundations, surrounded me with all the necessary visuals a great person should have as a child. He tried to focus my mind on the important things in life, values and principles.

Most importantly, something I realized after looking at some photos from before… I never looked back, never looked behind me because subconsciously, I KNOW for sure that he… my father, is always there behind my back. It is innate that I feel un-scared, brave, fearless… because from the beginning, before I was even born, the air around me knew that no matter what he’ll be there supporting me and protecting me from everything that would try to break me. I never dared or even thought of the need to look behind me because of them and the priceless parental security that they provide spiritually. They are the exact reason I always look forward and feel free to take any leap… I never knew it until now, and I dont even know if they’re aware of it. It’s that rare magic, I think, that not even their parents’ love can compare to…

So Papa, even though you say I’m eccentric, I’m not crazy nor weird… I’m just loved, that’s why I have this mojo because of your, and Mama’s love.

I love you very much.
I wish you would stay healthy and see me fly and soar high.
I wish you’ll stay healthy till you’re 150 y/o and watch me surpass you and put my genes to good use. Haha, you make me so emotional I cry.

Venus transits across the sun and earth

The coolest thing

Now this is freaking cool. Not a hundred Lady Gaga nor a million Madonna can top this. Makes one want to live another 100 years more just to see this happen again. (2117 and December 2125 to be exact)


here’s an article i got from:

The astronomical phenomenon is the last transit of Venus this century and will last for several hours. The next transits of Venus will occur in December 2117 and December 2125.

A transit of Venus across the sun takes place when the planet Venus passes directly between the sun and Earth, becoming visible against the solar disk. During a transit, Venus can be seen from Earth as a small black disk moving across the face of the sun. A transit is similar to a solar eclipse by the moon. While the diameter of Venus is almost 3 1/2 times that of the moon, Venus appears smaller and travels more slowly across the face of the sun than the moon, because it is much farther from Earth.

“The transit will start at 6:11 a.m. and last six hours and 37 minutes, until 12:48 p.m. Shenzhen residents could be very likely to see the phenomenon,” sky-watchers at Shenzhen Meteorological Observatory said yesterday. 


Clouds partially obscure the sun during the transit of Venus June 5, 2012 as seen from Riverside Park on the west side of Manhattan in New York.

Sad to say, I, Anne, missed it. What a shame. But this kind of phenomena is something that piqued my wonder. How bizarre for me that this 2012 is both the year of the dragon and my planet Venus appeared that prominently.

Anyway, signal or not. an omen or not. this is just amazing and beautiful.
