....sure.
Churia 식

It's been a while...soundtrack to life updated version cuz I'm bored and nobody cares, k.

Opening Credits: Taxi Driver Interlude One - Dynamic Duo

Hmmm - interesting, it's actually a dialogue and stuff...how interesting

Waking up: B TL B TL - 어른아이

Peaceful, to the sound of rain and very mellow - actually sounds like a very appropriate song to wake up to - or like one of those waking up scenes...

First Day of school: Sky Dancing - Patrick Watson

Has haunting qualities to it and what an interesting song for the first day of school - it sort of goes well with the clockwork and anonymity of it that I hate so much about school and its boring routines and schedules and people and dizzying walking and interacting and acting as if everything is together.

Falling in love: Call When You Land - MYK

Mellow, cheerful with acoustic instruments and a swing to it "I'll see you when I get there and when I get there I'm gon' come prepared and once I get there you know we'll get married" very realistic and romantic and cute.

Fight Song: Before The Earth Was Round - OK Go

Talking about nature and war and history in an alternate universe type of context. Interesting - and the mood of the song is very poignant and uppity.

Breaking up: Alaska - Shugo Tokumaru

Again not entirely sad sounding but very mellow. Basically something about some unstoppable sounds coming from the rain (tinnitus?) constantly ringing and racing and that very rain nurturing the brokenness and erasing the possible futures or roads.

Prom: 어땠을까 - PSY

Song is reminiscing of a young and passionate love and it's kinda fitting :P (it's asking how would it have been if I did things differently ie. better)

Mental Breakdown: Refuse - The KOXX

Talking about being authentic no matter the consequences or backlash and stop being fake and refuse to refuse your self.

Driving: Fantasy - The xx

Umm...trippy and fantastic?

Getting Back together: 60초 - 김성규

omg wow so fitting - song is about meeting a recent lover that you haven't gotten over on the street and all the memories flooding back.

Wedding: In My Head - CN BLUE

pft - dry. lol but the song's about seizing your dreams and your aspirations for a future together with (your significant other in this case?) and yeah...pretty fitting - what a anthemic wedding song :P

Final Battle: Daydream - Epik High

Dammit my character is pretty spacey and...ahem...fucking crazy. lol but not really - just a rebel :P SO my final battle is with myself/society I guess where I just decide to quit my job and run away to the sea and the mountains and live the way I want without the thought of money.

Funeral: Can't Pretent - Tom Odell

Painful love and all of your shortcomings and how you wish you could fix it but you can't cuz you can't pretend cuz you guess that's love. (This is sorta in the guy's perspective so that's interesting if I were to take that into account - although - almost all of these songs so far have been in the guy's perspective so I guess it doesn't matter.

End Credits: Oriental Girl - The KOXX

PUAHAHAAHAHAHHAHAHAHA how fitting :P

tofu

french fries

 2 pounds russet potatoes (about 4 large), peeled and cut into 1/4-inch by 1/4-inch fries (keep potatoes stored in a bowl of water)
2 tablespoons distilled white vinegar
Kosher salt
2 quarts peanut oil

PROCEDURES
1
Place potatoes and vinegar in saucepan and add 2 quarts of water and 2 tablespoons of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 10 minutes. Potatoes should be fully tender, but not falling apart. Drain and spread on paper towel-lined rimmed baking sheet. Allow to dry for five minutes.
2
Meanwhile, heat oil in 5-quart Dutch oven or large wok over high heat to 400°F. Add 1/3 of fries to oil (oil temperature should drop to around 360°F). Cook for 50 seconds, agitating occasionally with wire mesh spider, then remove to second paper-towel lined rimmed baking sheet. Repeat with remaining potatoes (working in two more batches), allowing oil to return to 400°F after each addition. Allow potatoes to cool to room temperature, about 30 minutes. Continue with step 3, or for best results, freeze potatoes at least over night, or up to 2 months.
3
Return oil to 400°F over high heat. Fry half of potatoes until crisp and light golden brown, about 3 1/2 minutes, adjusting heat to maintain at around 360°F. Drain in a bowl lined with paper towels and season immediately with kosher salt. Cooked fries can be kept hot and crisp on a wire rack set on a sheet tray in a 200°F oven while second batch is cooked. Serve immediately.

cookies

 serves about 48 cookies
2 1/2 cups (350 g) all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 cup (8 ounces/225 g) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup (215 g) packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup (150 g) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 cups (about 225 g) nuts, such as walnuts, pecans, almonds, or macadamia nuts, toasted and coarsely chopped
14 ounces (400 g) bittersweet or semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped into 1/2- to 1-inch (1.5- to 3-cm) chunks or 3 cups (340 g) chocolate drops

PROCEDURES
1
In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
2
In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment (or in a bowl by hand), beat together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla on medium speed just until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time until thoroughly incorporated, then stir in the flour mixture followed by the nuts and chocolate chunks.
3
On a lightly floured work surface, divide the dough into quarters. Shape each quarter into a log about 9 inches (23 cm) long. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm, preferably for 24 hours.
4
Position racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven; preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
5
Slice the logs into disks 3/4 inch (2 cm) thick and place the disks 3 inches (8 cm) apart on the prepared baking sheets. If the nuts or chips crumble out, simply push them back in.
6
Bake, rotating the baking sheets midway through baking, until the cookies are very lightly browned in the centers, about 10 minutes. If you like soft chocolate chip cookies, as I do, err on the side of underbaking.
7
Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets until firm enough to handle, then use a spatula to transfer them to a wire rack.
8
Storage: The dough logs can be refrigerated for 1 week or frozen for up to 1 month. The baked cookies will keep well in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

shinee obsession (욕/慾)

 더 떨리는 두 손 곧 떨어질 초점
고장난 내 다리 여기 왜 서있는지
기억조차 안나 무서워 지는 걸
방금까지 웃고있던 넌 어딨는지
(Why) 장난같은 소리 날 떠나 버렸니 넌 저 멀리
(Why) 희미해질까 족쇄같은 흉터

[chorus]
* 욕해 놓쳐버린 날 욕해
무너진 내 심장은 날 버리지마
날 혼자 두지마 외치고 있지만
널 원해 미친 듯 난 널 원해
날 떠난 네 입술은 사랑하지마
날 사랑하지마 널 버린 거잖아

단지 끝없는 사랑 주고 싶었던 것뿐
더 넘친 사랑이 그댈 졸을 줄이야
상처난 가슴에 찢겨진 나날들
길 잃은 사랑, 눈물 턱까지 차올라
(Why) 아직도 내 안에 슬픈 안녕만 건내는 건지
(Why) 오늘까지만 날 밀쳐내지마

[chorus]
* 욕해 놓쳐버린 날 욕해
무너진 내 심장은 날 버리지마
날 혼자 두지마 외치고 있지만
널 원해 미친 듯 난 널 원해
날 떠난 네 입술은 사랑하지마
날 사랑하지마 널 버린 거잖아

너 제발 눈치 채 주길
난 또 다른 너인 걸
네 어젯밤의 악몽까지 감싸 안아
손을 놓지 마

[chorus]
* 욕해 놓쳐버린 날 욕해
무너진 내 심장은 날 버리지마
날 혼자 두지마 외치고 있지만
널 원해 미친 듯 난 널 원해
날 떠난 네 입술은 사랑하지마
날 사랑하지마 널 버린 거잖아

곁에 차가워진 네 곁에
찢겨진 내 가슴은 날 떠나지마
더 멀어지지마 네 손을 잡지만
기억해 끝내 널 잊지 못해
버 려진 내 아픔도 난 잊지 않아
잊을 수 없잖아 네가 준 거잖아

[rap]
사랑한다는 이유조차 죄가 됐지
깊은 상쳐들은 타 들어가 재가 됐지
하지만 잃는 것보다 잊는 것이 더 아파올 뿐
숨죽이며 이별의 고통에 서서히 난 죽어갈 뿐
그 순간으로 bring it back

날 버리지마

remember me lyrics

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay
Remember me when no more day by day
You tell me of our future that you planned
Only remember me;

You understand it will be late to counsel then or pray
Yet if you should forget me for a while and afterwards remember,
Do not grieve
For if the darkness and corruption
Leave a vestige of the thoughts that once I had,
Better by far you should forget and smile
Than that you should remember and be sad.

Purple summer

A summer's day
A mother sings
A song of purple summer
Through the heart of everything

And heaven waits
So close it seems
To show her child the wonders
Of a world beyond her dreams

The earth will wave with corn
The day so white, so warm
And mares will neigh
With stallions that they mate
Foals they've borne

And all shall know the wonder
Of purple summer

And so I wait
The swallow brings
A song of what's to follow
The glory of the spring

The fences sway
The porches swing
The clouds begin to thunder
Crickets wander, murmuring

The earth will wave with corn
The day so white, so warm
And mares will neigh
With stallions that they mate
Foals they've borne

And all shall know the wonder
I will sing the song of purple summer
All shall know the wonder
I will sing the song of purple summer

And all shall know the wonder
Of purple summer
