Crazy almost 300 people on Soompi are waiting to see who the final artist list will be for Hollywood Bowl 2008. I'm already satisfied with the list so far, but I'd also really like Big Bang, SNSD, Epik High, Tim, and/or Sung Si Kyung to come.
Ohhhh some good news and some bad!
THE NEW BATCH OF ARTISTS ARE:
SOHN HO YOUNG (FROM G.O.D.) (I've never heard of him...)
SO NYO SHI DAE (SNSD)
BRIAN FROM FLY TO THE SKY (yay!)
OCK JOO HYUN
DUE TO A CHANGE IN BROADCASTING COMPANY:
LEE HYORI & WONDER GIRLS WILL NOT BE ATTENDING THIS YEAR'S FESTIVAL. (awwwwwwww to Wonder Girls)
THERE WILL BE ANOTHER ANNOUNCEMENT WITH 1 OR 2 ADDITIONAL ARTIST. KHYPE WILL MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT FOR THE NEXT ARTIST RELEASE.
Whyyy do they do that! This was supposed to be the last batch of artists!
I'm happy with SNSD but I was really looking forward to see Wonder Girls so I'm a bit disappointed that they aren't coming anymore. Lee Hyo Ri and Wonder Girls aren't coming anymore b/c they switched broadcasting companies from MBC to SBS.. and there's some conflicting schedule. Lee Hyo Ri was supposed to MC (and possibly perform).
There's still hope for Big Bang!
This is funny - Khype categorized this for us:
Performing for OLD: Shin Joong Hyun, Tae Jin Ah, Yoon Hyung Joo, Kim Se Hwan, Choi Baek Ho, Jung Hoon Hee
Performing for YOUNG: Dong Bang Shin Gi(TVXQ), Super Juior-T, Sohn Ho Young, So Nyo Shi Dae(SNSD), Fly To The Sky, SG Wannabe, Ock Joo Hyun, Eru (1~2 artist TBD)
MC: Brian & Ock Joo Hyun
Yesterday I checked my agenda at 10:30PM (to check if anything else was due b/c I realized while I was washing the dishes after dinner that I had to read 2 chapters and an article for my Geo class the next day!!) and saw that today was the last day to apply for the Business faculty! Luckily, it was a quick online application so I did that on time... but they said they won't consider me for the summer application period if I didn't take a summer course... which I didn't plan to take anymore... and the course I was considering (if I had to) was a distance ed. course that's all filled up so boo.
YESS last Geog 389: Political Ecology class + tutorial! Very harmless today. TA even gave us chocolate.
M picked me up from the skytrain station and got her oh-so-precious autographed Lang Lang CD back and then B came over for dinner and to show me the extra extensions I might buy from her sister! Ohhhh I wanna get extensions so badly! I hope they'll look alright - my hair is definitely a lot more damaged than the really healthy extension hair.. and it's at a short length so there might be quite a big difference. It seems that once you succumb to the world of hair dye, it takes so much patience to get super healthy hair again (to grow it out or just chop it all off). I've gotten really used to brown hair on me and I think it looks way better than black. Planning to dye it again on Thurs.
I never used to be a perfume girl. When my mom had to go to Sears or The Bay when I was young, we'd have to pass by the cosmetic counters and I'd always have to plug my nose b/c I hated the smell so much. So strong. So old-lady like. Never thought I'd ever like perfume. I even gagged when I'd flip those vogue-type fashion magazines with those tabbed scents. I used to say I was allergic haha
Eventually, I got into scented non-fruity lotions like Victoria's secret's Love Spell (purple) lotion (haha ok not really perfume, but it's a start!). Then I discovered Anna Sui's Secret Wish perfume (the blue one) and fell in love! I even splurged the $60 and bought it but eventually returned it b/c I found out that it didn't have much staying power.
Now, I'm absolutely in love with 3 fragrances. (All prices are in USD)
1. Burberry's The Beat (lol B, it is actually called The Beat!) Eau de Parfum
This scent is new to the Burberry line and is aimed towards a young audience.
With model Agyness Deyn as its face, Beat is targeting a young, urban and hip crowd, said Burberry's creative director Christopher Bailey. "The mood of the fragrance is young, modern, energetic, dynamic, expressive, fun, vigour, verve and spiritedness ... All words that describe the mood, inspiration and sense of ebullience that we wanted to evoke." (via Cosmetics International, 12/14/2007)
Agyness Deyn is so cool. I found it the Elle mag scent-tab Nad got me. The smell is definitely not for a 50 year old.
This is the regular spray. [1oz = $50/ 1.7oz = 62/2.5oz = $80]
This is the Intense Elixir Parfur [$130]which is basically a more concentrated version of above. Such a luxe bottle! I love the little Burberry tag that hangs from the side.
2. Burberry Burberry Classic (since 1996)
I actually sprayed this on a card in the Burberry store in Seattle Premium Outlets the other week while I was waiting for ppl to meet up. I was VERY pleasantly surprised with the smell! I couldn't stop smelling the card all the way home. It's been a couple weeks and the smell is only slightly less fragrant, but the staying power seems pretty darn amazing. It has a clean, feminine, and sweet scent and is practically timeless - any age can wear it. Maybe that's why it's a classic.
It comes in a 'contemporary pebble-shaped design'. 1.7oz = $55/3.3oz = $72
Too bad I didn't check how much this bottle was at the outlets.
3. Abercrombie FIERCE Cologne [$30-75]
What? What? Did I just say I wanted a Cologne??? But... that's guys perfume! YUP I couldn't believe it was a guy's cologne but it smells SO GOOD!! This is apparently the stuff they spray on all their clothes in the store. The staying power seems really good b/c the clothes I buy keep their smell until I wash it... and the scent even fills my room!
The scent is so seductive lol I can't stop smelling it!
I saw a few reviews on AOL by some guys that own it. I'm so glad A&F isn't popular up here! It seems like A&F and American Apparel are wayyyy too popular.... and cult-like like Aritzia.
Anyway, the bottle seems sturdy - it's made of glass and the rest of metal (plastic cap inside though)
Only thing is that their bottle is embarrassing to own to say the least.... but I just might pick up a small bottle next time I'm down there.
I think it's ridiculous to pay full price for a scent. I'm really wary of buying scents off Ebay b/c I've heard many stories where ppl just get water-downed versions of the perfume or didn't get the real scent at all. I'm also quite envious of those accessible to stores like TJ Maxx and Marshalls (a sort of Winners in the States) where ppl seem to get Burberry scents for $20/$30 USD!
Anyway, I think I'll just keep sniffing along.
RIP Elliott Yamin's mom (65)...
What is with the obsession with Miley Cyrus? I only half get it. She's a happy 15 year-old.
And she really makes me wanna get the AA Raglan (gray) from this pic. So cute.
Her hair, on the other hand... not so cute.
