Same/Same - PUNCH!

In Korean culture, nothing says I ♥♥♥ you more than going out and about with your special someone dressed up in matching outfits.
Yeah, I'm sort of confused by the whole idea as well .... but a party is a party.

"You can no more win a war than you can an earthquake".


And then there was an unfortunate foot injury ....

.... but it takes more than alot of blood to keep this lady down....

... so instead we asked at the police station and they politely obliged.

Mudfest - After the Mud

No muddy pictures to see here

..... yet.....

daytime photos will appear after I visit the cute couple at the camera shop.

Last weekend I dragged the new girl onto a very tacky pink bus at 7am where we spent the following 6 hours with drunk girls who passed out in stranger's laps, boys who peed in bottles, and far too many chain smoking waekookins - all this we endured for the chance to spend a day and a half running around some small Korean seaside town in the middle of nowhere dousing ourselves in mud.

It looked a little something like this .....
Photo thanks to the lovely Fran.

After we rinsed off all the mud we ran into some familiar faces ...

.... while the West Virginian shot some guns....

.... then sang songs .....

I gave it a go .... but trying to sing Blondie when the lyrics are written in Korean .... there are some things even short shorts can't do.

After twisting and shouting and dancing and singing some of the wild ones went out for a little late night skinny dip. I - being the square that I am - stayed behind and had my own little dance party on the beach. Then these guys showed up with a girl wearing bright yellow Chucks and pulled the balloon down from the sky.

Things started to get a little strange when we crashed the second noribang party.
Our new friends weren't so much fans of clothing ... or in some cases underwear ....

Good ol' Rhylon kept the party PG.

No night of drinking is complete without soju and loitering outside the FamilyMart ... and on this perticular night the new friendly face we met belonged to the tallest man in Korea, who also happens to be one of the nicest.

Night over.
Time to sleep on the floor (there were no beds...just floors).
Next day back to the bus ... the never ending bus ...
Poor new girl was all tuckered out.

I wish I could, I wish I could

By The End of Today ...

Fifty People, One Question: New York from Fifty People, One Question on Vimeo.

..... I'd like to collapse into bed after an amazing day/night/morning of dancing/singing/photoing/talking/eating/listening/laughing/drinking/flirty smiles/puddle splashing/cheese nibbling/secret kisses/walking on the grass/batting caging/parler francais... what else did I forget?

You make me stare at my feet ... which is cool because I love my red shoes.

This video continues to be sweeter than deep fried twinkies covered in icing sugar....

A beautiful sentiment with a little sprinkling of colourful words ... I swoon.
Sadly, I don't know where this photo came from. You could just ask her.

That Is What Dance Floors Are Made Of

Good bye Bu!
Hello Gu!

With little sleep and even less of an idea of what was about to happen I followed these three boys on a little musical roadtrip to Daegu to see this guy play.

He didn’t disappoint.
All the cool kids got sweaty.....

....the cute girls took pictures ....

....overwhelming cocktails were consumed ...

... and Matt Rowe outdanced them all.
When this guy started drumming ... my head almost exploded in that "oohh ... ahhh ... AHHHH" sort of way when you aren't quite sure what is going on, but oh my goodness it's amazing.

Delicious somethings were consumed ....

... and surprise! suprise! little sleep was had.
The next day the boys tried spreading some American 4th of July love ....

.... but they got over that idea.

Bye bye Gu!
Hello Bu!
