CIRCUITS OF FEVER

Photolog 2019: Day 162 of 365

Sunday, June 16, 2019

Took a teeny tiny break from BTS for a few hours to go see Alexisonfire tonight at Budweiser Stage. George is rockin' a serious dad bod and Dallas and Wade have salt and pepper hair now, but they honestly sound just as good as I remember from back in the day. They played a great variety of songs across all of their albums, including some of my all-time favourites like "Little Girls Pointing and Laughing," "Pulmonary Archery," "Rough Hands," and "Boiled Frogs." High school Denise JUMPED OUT tonight. Oh, man, the nostalgia!

Sunday Video Love: Dimple at BTS 5th Muster [Magic Shop] in Busan (Jimin Focus)

on

This is a Jimin focus fancam so we don't see the full stage of all the members, but it's the best quality video I could find of BTS vocal line's performance of "Dimple" from yesterday's first 5th Muster in Busan. (Musters are BTS' annual fan meetings. Essentially, these fan meetings are like concerts but they perform songs that they've never performed before or switch up performances of songs in new ways that they've never done. They also do little skits, talk times, and games. They're doing two Musters in Busan and two in Seoul this year.) This is the first time they've performed "Dimple" (one of my favourite songs from Love Yourself: Her) live so I HAD TO POST IT. Also, it has to be said: Jimin is still the KING of body rolls. Ugh, I can't wait to see the 5th Muster in Seoul live stream next weekend.

I caved and bought a bunch of stuff from MAC's summer collection, Electric Wonder. They were too pretty to pass up. MAC is on fire this year with the colours and packaging. This year's summer collection features a gorgeous white, lilac, and grey marbling with gold accents, and it might honestly be the nicest packaging I've seen so far over the past few years. Also, MAC finally released a face palette! I hope they'll release palettes like these permanently. Honestly, it's about time.

BTS World Original Soundtrack [Pt. 2]: BTS & Zara Larsson — A Brand New Day

on
Friday, June 14, 2019


As mentioned, BigHit will be releasing three tracks from the BTS World OST ahead of the official launch of the upcoming BTS mobile role-playing game, BTS World. The first track, "Dream Glow," a collaboration between the Jungkook, Jimin, and Jin subunit and Charli XCX, came out last week. This week, we have "A Brand New Day," a collaboration between the V and J-Hope subunit and Swedish singer-songwriter, Zara Larsson. I've known her since I heard her song "Uncover" play at work several years ago, but haven't really listened to much else from her. I've listened to "A Brand New Day" about a dozen times already and I pick up something new every time. While I do think "Dream Glow" is innately catchier, I do find the sound and production of "A Brand New Day" to be far more unique. I've never heard this combination of beats and instrumentals together before — kind of a traditional Asian meets tropical vibe? — and it makes for a very fresh, upbeat song. Zara Larsson's vocals are gorgeous, smooth, and full-bodied, and she sounds beautiful along V's airier vocals and J-Hope's rhythmic melodic rapping.

RM and Suga's track will be released next week, and while they are both rappers, I actually think this is one of the more rare subunits in BTS. I wonder if they're going to have a featuring artist as well?

WE WON, WE WON, WE WON!!!

Tonight will go down in history as the first time ever that the Raptors — the only Canadian basketball team in the NBA — not only made it to the Finals, but won the championship. It is also the first time in the 21st century that a Toronto team has won a sports championship. I've never seen the country come together and cheer for a professional sports league team like this before.

Canada is celebrating big tonight. #WeTheNorth
