Rantglass - because that's how things are.


I can handle this.

There are a lot of things that I can not fathom nor understand in this world. Chief among them – one that has been hounding my thoughts for the past week – is this:

Why do karaoke videos have to be so… so… so bloody corny??!

Granted, karaoke videos are not meant to appeal visually – still, not every one would choose to focus on the white text that runs at the bottom of the screen, accompanied by a small ball bopping away merrily from word to word (after all, for some, watching the video is a way to tune out the horrible singing of an overly-enthusiastic karaoke singer)…

Girl looks toward the sun, a soft breeze gently pushing away strands of her long, curly golden mane from her face. She seems to be stuck in the 1980’s – with the tight long pants and crinkled, ruffle-front white blouse that she has on. Leaning against the wall, she strikes a pose depicting her feelings – that of longing and of pining for, as one would expect, her knight in shining armour.

Actually, I could not really remember how the video went – but I doubt there was another person in that video. It was all about her from start to end, in various other locations and, predictably, still showing that same melancholic look on her face.

Oh, how it wounds my soul, too.

I also realised that I have now descended to a new low, finding mindless amusement by looking at pictures of cute animals engaged in rib-tickling acts, captioned with that dreaded lolspeak.

It is all really just a matter of snapping that perfect shot at the right place, at the right time.

So. One more cheeseburger, if you please.
