Im going to talk BTS and K-Pop and #metoo and #TimesUp and the American music industry and how all of its related in a few...
So after all that noise all day, we need to get to a problem that is just as worse - the acceptance of BTS and K-Pop as a bromide from all the changing metrics in the American music industry and its issues. It's only going to create more headache.
The American Music Industry and the rest of the entertainment industry in the last several years put their bank on the Hallu Movement - a way of seeing popular culture and technology via Korean sensibilities.
There is a reason why this is so. Its because sadly - South Korea (until very recently) is a "Colony" (of sorts) of the United States. That all changed when the former president left the blue house under massive scandal.
Well, you say - Novid you cant just say that South Korea was a "Colony"! that's racist! They were a free people after the Korean War...
And thats where you kinda get your answer why it is a "Colony"
It was because of the Korean War that the US and South Korea became linked. But that all changed when the former president was impeached. While South Korea was in turmoil, the North should have attacked. But they didnt.
Something was beginning to change for decades on end - and it was the way the US and US companies and US Cultural Influence was on the wane but not fully weakened in that country.
The South Koreans, unlike many other nations in asia with the exception of Japan, took back there country and elected new leaders. The new leader has proven himself despite being a liberal in US context to be a game changer in getting rid of corruption and ending the Korean issue
But there are many major problems still in the nation and aspects of this is shown in the Hallu movement. BTS is not a wholly created Korean product. BTS is partly created by a Westernised group of music producers connected with the heads of the Music Industry here.
Aspects of the fashion industry in the US and Europe mislabel Japanese inventions as Korean discoveries.
The fanbase of K-Pop resembles a lot of post #MeToo and post #timesup sensibilities and pretty much help facilitate the over all feminzation movement that many US ad agencies are want to do (they used a lot of these things in Korea during the former presidents reign)
The American Music Industry here now, are supporting the weakest artists in the game. You can even see it in the recent announcement on the LA 3 day shindig that [Adult Swim] Planning. Tripple Redd over Daniel Curry? REALLY THO?
And part of this weakness is the BTS thing. For a cynical industry such as ours who already lost some of the great artists of our day and is pretty much a ghost infested hellpool, BTS reminds them of the good old days.
But BTS is plain. Some old bangers here or there. But to an industry who didnt recognize the fact that the Hip-Hop side of the game were putting out bangers every fucking Tuesday for 15 fucking years (1995 to 2010), BTS is a godsend for these failsons in the music game atm.
In reality, and sadly - knowing that J-Pop has the more diverse line up and the better female and male singers and songs - and allow them to produce their own songs and genres, its more of our nations tendency to put the "Good Asian" marker on the Korean music world....
because they behave and do what they are told and sing where they are sung act. And while that may be fine for some i take a more critical eye and deeply concerned look into why the American music industry and rest of the entertainment here put Korea/China over Japan/Rest of Asia
And some of the answers i see are not fucking pretty.
There was a reason why Girls Generation was stopped at a airport.
There is a reason why BTS is popular.
There is a reason why K-Pop fans in the states are the future look see into how women treat men after #MeToo.
What do you do when a people show that they are not what they say they want you to be?
There is a reason why certain folk dont want change.
Now go do your own research. I said enough about these things to last me a life time.

We need to talk about weak shit. And how some of my heroes accept that shit and it needs to stop the weak shit this instant...
While Im happy for Adult Swim and the LA shindig they are doing. We have to explain a few things and a few missteps they continue to make. Now Father is a good dj and all, hes not the best. He has moments of greatness, but he isnt as consistent. Deifying him is disappointing IMHO
Lets get to the people in the concert. While RTJ will always put on a great show, my question was why Triple Redd over Daniel Curry? This shit is unfuckingfathamable to me. Clout Cobain was powerful beyond all reproach, even in a way somewhat better in parts than This Is America

So after last week, yall want to get rid of habus corpus. "Innocent until Proven Guilty" Well aint that some shit right now coming from people who slept during AP Civics for fuck sakes.
This is our whole fucking culture today - no balls, no principles, blame some other nation for our children foibles and sufferings, Use another countries music to fuck over actual talent from another country and ours. Yall not serious and yall aint shit.
I say this with great sadness and anger, but i feel deeply sorry for white dudes, and for my brothas in the struggle, and my brothas in Japan and all over. The women running game today, and who wish to run every other thing aint worth what God made them to be.

I read something today (That's why i made that earlier quote it came from that post) that the concept of the Alpha "female" doesnt exist.
That person who wrote it is correct 100% because Alpha/Beta/Delta/Omega are praxolgies of action that humans do during ones life.
What women need to get over, is that their looks is connected to their accomplishments. any womans accomplishments only add to it.
Now here comes the sad fucking truth. The truth is that their anything close to Alpha Females, It would be the WWE/Pro Wrestling Females (cont)
And fitness models. The fact that there is such a movement to call those types of work "shameful" by those women who work in the major corporations and to have them replaced by the droll businesswoman etc is horseshit.

Its time to tell you a secret of TV that people tend to overlook and really misunderstand.
All aspects of promotion, production, and look in a series, news franchise, docuseries and other such are forms of art.
These arts are tools of force projection of the person using it.
So when one builds a lower third, the CGI graphics for intros into sports to news, to the building of sets and lighting - you get to see the tools built to force project gravitas. At times it doesnt work, and in other times it takes one to a time and place that is unforgettable.
#Toonami's greatest success, and ECW's greatest success and many other successes was the responsible use of technology and art and the way they spoke to their audiences without belittling them or putting them down or insulting their intelligence

Its time to talk about CBS, and the issues surrounding the CEO of the company and the show runner of 60 Minutes and the rest of the news division.
This company is in a fight to stay away from Viacom (I will get to them in a moment too) or at least merge with them in a light that is more "sane" to CBS.
In all reality, the company is heading to shambles.
Les Moonves to many in the media circles is the great leader of our times. But he has done four things that lead to the end of American Leadership in media. He and Sherry Redstones father decoupled Promotion of network over promotion of series-

So, What Now? What does it all mean? Why those three things are connected?

They are connected because of the acceptance of softness and lies. Period. A lot of yall accept that fake ass shit because of certain emotional hangups you cant get over.
And yea, I understand alot of our generation has gone through some shit - not the worst shit in the world but it was pretty bad.
That isnt any excuse to be blind to the fact that yall accept lies and evil in our time.
A lot of liberals were proven correct about the Iraq War and the neo-conservitives But these same liberals got caught up in the media success, rise of talk radio and neo conservative news, and they and their elite structures became neo conservatives themselves.
