Alcohol that tastes good? Sissy stuff!


Are those actually good? I see them all the time
What are the last two? I know makgeoli, but I'm not too up to date on my Korean alcohols. That being said, I'm all about the fruit-flavored life.

Second one is wine, third is distilled liquor (it's the second bottle, but 40%)

On another note, I finally watched "곡성" (The Wailing) last night after nearly a year of anticipation.



God was it terrible. :sad:

It might be better than I'm giving it credit for, but given that anything else I've read was gushing with praise for it, I was expecting much more. As is, it fell into some awkward uncanny valley where it was good enough in a lot of ways to be confused for a good film, but failed where it really counted. Or perhaps all those positive reviewers fell prey to some version of the sunk cost effect; Did I just waste nearly three hours on a bad movie, *or* was that actually the horror flick of the decade?

It felt a bit like the filmmaker was asking the viewer,

-What's 2 + 2?

~Why it's 4.

-No. I thought you might say that, but actually it's 8.

~Eight? How so?

-That second 2 was actually a 5, I just wrote it kinda sloppy. And there was one more that I didn't really tell you about, but is fully explained in the Director's Cut Bluray.

~oh.


Also, some pretty bad editing (it certainly didn't *need* to be as long as it was) and some awkward zombie scenes that didn't really fit. And it sure got a lot of people on reddit feeling very comfortable saying "the Jap". :undecided:

First half was great. Second half kind of lost the plot and dragged on.

I'm trying to buy some Ken's Ranch Dressing and it is only allowed up to six per order. It's considered a health supplement.

1) No one ever in the history of history has ever thought that.
2) Call a spade, a spade. It's an anti-competition barrier.

Get to school today. None of my textbook CDs or DVDs will work. None of my downloaded textbook resources will work. Check programs. All adobe and Shockwave players, Flash players, GOM and all that shit has been uninstalled. I try and prep my song for grade 3. MS media player is also gone.  I tell my CT that I am not sure why all those programs were removed, but I need them to lesson plan and to actually do my lessons. He walks away shrugging. I ask if I can download Adobe and any of the others that I will need and he says he will need to ask the Principal. What am I missing here? I am clearly missing something. I admit I do not understand technology in Korea. I just don't, from IE to Ahnlab and now this.

I was about to complain about my sulking CT again and how she's being passive aggressive but I read your post and cringed.

LOL, although I do feel your pain too. I am particularly irritated by adults that sulk. It is one of the few times that I will say "oh, just f*%king grow the f*%k up."

To add to my woes of trying to discuss the flash/shock wave issue - I get told that I can't have adobe because we need a licence for it because the computers are networked, if this is true ok, but I am only using it as a end user with it on my C drive not on the network drive??? Please can someone with some kind of technological know-how help me out here.... (oh yeah, but it is on his computer, and the other classroom computer), I checked, so I just really don't understand. I will just work on the other computer for now, even though it means standing.. I guess that is good for my back.

* EDIT No, I am not an idiot. Shockwave player is free. Nothing has changed we don't need a fekking licence. Gaaawwwwwwwwd strooth.

It really does. Share a little bit of your soul and they throw it back at you. Haha.

There was one kid that thought it was funny though and laughed throughout, so I guess there's that.

I'm a bit sick, throat's been killin me since the dustball concert that was PSY at JeonbukDae, and to top it off i blew out my neck while sleeping... Living in the middle of nowhere means no chiropractor nearby to sort out my neck so one of the teachers offered to take me to one of those oriental medicine places. I told her no acupuncture and she just said okay and giggled... I don't trust her and with this slight cold I don't trust myself to not sneeze with a neck full of needles......

Oh and to top it off another teacher said that because I can't move my head side to side, I look like Mr Bean when I turn  :cry:
