Who wouldn't want a condo, all the way up in Toronto?

cant believe it (cover) - jojo

This song has been out for a couple of months, but I just discovered it, and to my surprise, am really liking. Though the original single, "Can't Believe It" by T-Pain seemed to be playing everywhere, I was not impressed. I especially like the remake because Jojo is turning the tables on T-Pain's (and Lil' Wayne's) talk about putting "shortiez" in mansions or Penthouses.

This is they same reason why I disliked "Whatever You Like", T.I.'s musical promotion of prostitution. Now, I find myself humming the tune thanks to Ron Clark Academy's parody "You Can Vote However You Like."


"Shortiez" of the world, go and get your own penthouses.

Pretty amazing that you can keep up with Western music in the Korea, Annalog... especially given our people's penchant for playing the most reprehensible music at the clubs. Must've heard "Yeah" by Ursher 8,9 times a night in Hongdae when I was there.

Sorry, I'm not familiar with anime, especially Korean anime. I think Korean anime is actually Japanese anime dubbed in Korean. :)
The last Korean movies I saw were on the plane ride back to Cali:

1) My Love

This has been referred to as the Korean "Love Actually", but I found the "love stories" uninteresting.

2) Girl Scouts

Despite the film's talented female cast, the film was pretty boring and often times eye-rolling ludicrous. I ended watching the film in fast forward so that I could get some closure.

If you are into off-beat Korean rom-coms, I suggest that you check out "2 Faces of My Girlfriend"

I actually don't follow Korean cinema, so you probably want to consult other sources. For starters,

mysoju.com
crunchyroll.com

Hope that helps.

There appears to be no end to the Toronto Condo Boom with over 11,200 new units started in the first seven months of 2008. This is more than the total number of housing starts in 2007. Clearly there is a shift from developers building in the suburbs to now focusing on the City Of Toronto.
