Why Are These Kids At A Rave?
The 1990s were a simpler time - at least in the realm of kid birthday parties. You went out for laser tag or group-watched a movie. You had slumber parties or rented the 'party room' at your local roller rink. However, sometime between then and now, Skrillex happened - which brings us to the latest trend in children's birthday parties - KIDDIE RAVES. Introducing CirKiz - it's like that neon EDM-packed post-apocalypse you used to go to in college. But with safer goodie bags. You got your wildin' out, glowstick-wielding white bros. Guy with a cool haircut working the 1's and 2's. The person who's been going hard on fruit punch all night. And the one in the corner, currently regretting the fruit punch. CirKiz was created by some NYC-based, EDM-loving parents - Jesse Sprague and Jenny Song - who wanted to create a special place "where families can listen and dance to DJs, see live performances, and experience a nightclub environment in a safe, controlled daytime setting." Available in both New York and London, parents can choose one of several popular warehouse venues and trendy nightclubs for their CirKiz-sponsored event. One such venue, I was surprised to learn, is Cielo, a New York spot known for hosting some pretty 'high-brow' house and trance DJs. In fact, that's exactly where Jesse and Jenny first came up with their Cirkiz idea: "We had [our son's] 1st birthday party at Cielo. We invited friends with kids and friends without. It was so much fun for everyone we decided to make it an annual event but in different clubs. The message we got from all our friends was clear and consistent: 'You should do this professionally and turn it into a business... I'd pay to go.' So after years of just doing it for fun, we finally got our act together and did exactly that." Currently, CirKiz is hosting a 'winter series' of raves at NYC's Space Ibiza on Sundays, where ticket prices range from $15 - 20 per person. You can check out more details at their official website or you can be like me and just stare at these pictures, feeling equal parts confused and disturbed. With that being said: What do you guys think? Is combining kids and rave culture a good idea or bad idea? Let me know in the comments below. (Also shout-out to the LED robot in this picture up here. For a part-time job, that's - admittedly - rad as hell.)
Qu'est ce que le survivalisme ?
Le survivalisme par définition est un mode de vie qui constitue à une préparation à une éventuelle catastrophe. La préparation des survivants repose principalement sur l'apprentissage des techniques de survie et des concepts médicaux. Avec la bonne préparation, le bon équipement et les bons vêtements avec notre boutique militariat, vous pouvez survivre à la forêt ou prévenir les catastrophes. L'origine du survivalisme a commencé avec l'herbertisme. Il s'agit d'un événement pour former l'officier de marine Georges Hébert. Le but de cette activité est de devenir puissant et utile. Pour ce faire, il est nécessaire de réaliser une éducation sportive, nature et utilitaire. Aux États-Unis dans les années 1960, l'inflation et la dépréciation ont incité les gens à adopter l'idée de kits de sauvetage. À partir des années 1970, certains livres sur le mot « survie » et les méthodes appropriées ont commencé à paraître. Kurt Saxon sera le premier à utiliser le terme "survivaliste". Cependant, John Pugsley publiera "Strategy Alpha" dans les années 1980. Ce livre est devenu une référence pour les survivalistes américains. Dans les années 1990, le mythe du bug du millénaire a donné un nouvel élan au mouvement survivaliste. Les divers événements catastrophiques de 2000 à nos jours continuent d'alimenter la peur et de stimuler la motivation survivaliste. La survie est parfois liée aux croyances religieuses. Être préparé signifie parfois commencer un long voyage avec la famille, les amis et les voisins, mais parfois le voyage doit être commencé seul. Ne pas se préparer, bien ou mal, à l'effondrement imminent, souvent appelé survivalisme. En revanche, il peut y avoir rupture plus ou moins normale. Ils dépendent de l'âge, du sexe, du lieu de résidence, de la formation précédente, des personnes accompagnantes, du matériel disponible... Ainsi, notre magasin survivaliste a pour objectif de regrouper au même endroit du matériel utile et de qualité, et à un prix abordable, dans le respect des grandes règles des survivalistes : eau, alimentation, énergie, hygiène/santé, défense, et blog Connaissances. Par conséquent, nous ne parlerons pas d'invasion extraterrestre...
Want To Write A Song? Here's How!
Musicians are strange creatures, cursed with melodies spinning around in their heads constantly. It's hard to recognize what words are brilliant lyrics, or just fleeting thoughts. The mind of a musician is a jumbled mess, with little bits and pieces of melodies and broken love songs constantly dragging behind them. My newest effort premieres at the end of this post! So stay tuned if you want to learn how to write music, and where these tips can get you. This card was inspired by @buddyesd and our conversations about music and songwriting over the past few days. 1. The first step is to know your music! Videos: Some of my favorites. I've been a musician my whole life. I started singing in my terrible two's and ended up getting a guitar at age 11 and starting my first rock band at 12. My life has always centered on what band I was obsessed with at the time. It all started with Green Day... Then the Ramones... Then My Chemical Romance... Thirty Seconds To Mars... The Sex Pistols... The Libertines... Neil Young, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Pete Doherty and on and on. And so on and so fourth. The point I'm trying to make here, is that you have to go through a lot of music to gain the inspiration and the fortitude to start making your own. Influences are a huge part of songwriting. They help you form what kind of identity you want as an artist. 2. Know that the perfect song won't come overnight. Your development takes time! (Video 1: One of the first songs I ever wrote (2009) "The Way You Talk" / tried and true pop-punk) (Video 2: A later rock song, 2014 "Tourist" a little more sophisticated, deeper lyrics, more passion, messy garage-rock feel) I didn't wake up and just know how to play the guitar and write songs, it took time. I sat in my room for hours on end, plucking away, humming, writing down and recording things and ultimately a lot of the stuff I wrote early on was complete shit. It just now, feels like I'm writing really meaningful stuff. So, just give yourself some time, and know that every musician goes through an evolution at every level. I started out writing simple, three chord punk songs in the vein of Green Day, my favorite band. That slowly evolved into more anthemic and stadium-like tunes when I started getting into bands like The Rolling Stones, U2 and so fourth... Now I've evolved into this heart-wrenching raw, indie influenced folk-y sound that is directly linked to my love for Pete Doherty's solo album Grace / Wastelands, a collection of melancholy tracks dedicated to love and confusion. My new song, Counselor (heard here), is a haunting acoustic ballad influenced by more singer / songwriter acts since I'm solo right now. So things have to evolve with the times. 3. Do some research. You have to know where you came from in order to know where you can go. This being said, every musician's routine is different. I just like to pick up my guitar, start strumming a few chords and a melody or lyric will come, and I'll go from there. Some people sit at a keyboard and bang out a melody, Others just jam and find a chord progression they like, to start with and build a melody on top of it. If you're not that experienced, you have to do some research. Look up the greats: Lennon and McCartney, Richards and Jagger. The classics are a great way to look at song structure. Then, look up your favorite artist's songwriting routines and experiment with them, mix and match styles until you feel like you can get somewhere. Like the lead singer of Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong writes his melodies first, lyrics later. Both come at once for me, melody and lyric, almost always. So it just depends on how your brain works, and you won't know until you try. 4. JUST GO FOR IT!!! Music isn't perfect and most of the time it isn't beautiful or polished. So if you want to start creating your own, just start doing it. Hum melodies, listen to your favorite artists, pick up an instrument and do it! If you have the passion and you want to learn, anything is possible. I'm here to help too, if you have any questions or thoughts. Do not be afraid, because you could write the next number one single in your bedroom...you never know ;)! My newest song, written and recorded on August 12th, 2015 is up on Sound Cloud now, here's the link if you're interested. See! Songwriting isn't hard! ;) "Lying To The Wind" By: Tess Stevens
Top 10 Alternative Albums Of 2015
2015 was a huge year for Alternative music. We had comebacks, break-ups and killer releases. Music is the missing link between us and the rest of the world. It expresses our deepest fears, joys and triumphs. 2015 was the year of great comebacks, massive hooks and surprise collaborations. Alternative music is always surprising and brilliant. Here are my picks for the top 10 Alternative Albums of 2015. 10. Let It Reign - Carl Barat and The Jackals One of the most underrated indie releases of this year, Let It Reign is a stomper from start to finish. Showcasing the anger and madness Barat became famous for, while also coming off as an extremely nuanced look back at wilder days, this album is perfect for anyone going through the trenches. I took a lot of comfort in these songs, because it was like someone was singing my sorrow back to me. This album is ideal for front to back listening. No skips needed. Even Carl Barat himself liked my sentiments on this record. YES for the ReTweet! (Scroll right to see!) Essential Listens: "March of the Idle", "A Storm Is Coming", "Victory Gin" 9. Badlands - Halsey If you put Sia, Lorde and Debby Harry into a blender, out comes Halsey. Badass, unique and fresh, her style and honesty injected pop and alternative with some much needed perspective. I remember listening to the single "New Americana" while I lived in Brooklyn, New York this summer. I'll never forget the memories associated with it. That's how you know a song or album is good. You can remember the exact time you listened to those tracks, and they transport you to that place. Her debut was one of the most pleasant surprises of the year. We've got a lot to look forward to. Essential Listens: "New Americana", "Ghost", " 8. Wolf Alice - My Love Is Cool Teenage reckless abandon is alive and well with Wolf Alice's "My Love Is Cool". Marketed and revered as grunge's next incarnation. After years of relentless touring without a full-length release there was a lot of anticipation leading up to the full length release. We were not disappointed. Unapologetic and taylor made for the festival circuit, Wolf Alice, is yet another UK indie act with the potential to take over the world. Essential Listens: "Lisbon", "Soapy Water" 7. Sound & Color -Alabama Shakes No voice rocked the world in 2105 like Brittany Howard's. Sometimes when you hear something so profound and unique, it just changes things. We felt the pain, joy and madness of this album through each note she sang. It doesn't hurt that this band is solid as a rock live, and even sounds better than the records. Alabama Shakes were relatively unknown prior to this year's release, and hopefully their star will keep rising, so we can get a little bit more of that home grown, soul-rock and roll. Essential Listens: "Future People", "Don't Want To Fight", "Sound & Color" 6. Blur - The Magic Whip 2015 was really the year that Britrock came back. I mean four British bands made this list, and for good reason. Blur dropped off the map after a festival cancellation in 2013, but came back with magic to spare with 2015's "The Magic Whip". More fun and functional than most albums of this year, the album was a great comeback for one of Britain's most revered bands. Now, if only Oasis could give us an album like this. We'd be set. Essential Listens: "I Broadcast", "Ghost Ship", "Go Out" 5. Grimes - Art Angel Much like Halsey, Grimes turned pop music on its head this year. Bucking the notion that women are merely pawns in the grand scheme of pop music, Grimes is a testament to female empowerment. Catchy hooks, beats dripping with style and hipster-cred coupled with honest and provocative lyrics create one of my favorite albums of the year. Trust me, after a few listens you'll be questioning everything. Essential Listens: "Flesh Without Blood", "Artangels", "California" 4. American Beauty / American Psycho - Fall Out Boy A lot of hardcore fans didn't like this record. Whatever the reason, change in sound, more electronic vibes, samples, who knows. I on the other hand rocked out to this thing all year long. With quintessential tracks ranging from bittersweet (Fourth of July), to party ready (American Beauty/American Psycho, to haunting (Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC)), this album has something for everyone. If you're willing to give something new a chance, evolution is always good for rock and roll. Essential Listens: "Centuries", "Twin Skeletons (Hotel in NYC), "Jet Pack Blues", "The Kids Aren't Alright" 3. Blurryface - Twenty One Pilots I never really gave Twenty-One Pilots a chance. For some reason I aligned them with 5 Seconds of Summer as a virtually commercial outfit with little to no artistry involved. But, I was pleasantly surprised when I listened to 2015's Blurryface, an honest, cold, often harsh look at post-adolescence and the emptiness that often comes with realizing that you're an adult. It hit home. I highly recommend this album for anyone coping with their doomed youth. Essential Listens: "Stressed Out", "Ride", "Fairly Local" 2. The Desired Effect - Brandon Flowers The Killers frontman took us back to the 80's with his second solo effort, The Desired Effect. It's one of those albums you can listen to all day and not even realize it. Diverse and surprising, Flowers generates all sorts of musical stylings from the Robert Palmer-esque "Lonely Town" to the rhythmic departure of "Can't Deny My Love", all the way to the heartland-rock inspired "Dreams Come True" we see the range of the singer's influences like never before. A true masterpiece in the art of pop music, The Desired Effect creates a soundscape on its own level. Retro, fabulous and honest, this is a top recommendation from 2015. Essential Listens: "Dreams Come True", "Lonely Town", "Can't Deny My Love", "Digging Up The Heart" 1. Anthems For Doomed Youth - The Libertines Of course the most unlikely and epic comeback of the year has to top my list. It's no secret that The Libertines are a band that changed my life. Rooted in dirty indie rock, with all the history of an epic novel, this album has been a long time coming, and a long shot to happen. After the messy break up of Britain's most exciting band, most thought the Libs would never come back. Surprise. 2015 was the year everything changed. With irreverent new tracks chronicling the struggles of history (Fame and Fortune), and old favorites finally seeing the light of day (You're My Waterloo) Anthems For Doomed Youth changed the lives of Libertines everywhere. Essential Listens: "Gunga Din", "Heart of the Matter", "You're My Waterloo", "Iceman" What were your favorite albums this year? Make sure to talk about them in the Alternative-Rock community! A totally bitchin' place for all things alternative.

10 Secrets That Experts Of Dog Photography Don’t Want You To Know
Dog photography is a popular photographic medium nowadays. This might be a picture of your furry friend for your Instagram feed. Or a professional drawing at a dog show. Knowing how to photograph dogs is a great way to practice Photography in general. You don’t need your own dog photo studio to take great pictures. Read all the ten secrets information you need to do Photography. Focus Your Dog Character For Photography Taking Photography of dogs makes a lot of sense if you can focus/capture their behaviour in a photo. It’s fun to enjoy a popular activity, such as taking Photography of dogs in their favourite spots, tapping on the porch, or grabbing a Frisbee. To capture a dog’s character, ask yourself what is unique about your dog and try to capture that character in front of the camera. Use A Lens Fast For Dog Photography. Dogs don’t stay! Wink, you’ll miss their paradox, so it’s essential to use a faster lens and a faster shutter speed. My go-to lens is a 70-200mm f2.8 telephoto lens that is fast enough to freeze motion on that all-important shot, and you can zoom in and out quickly if needed. It also draws well in the background when taking photos. Base lenses are also great – 50mm or 85mm works well. Make sure you open your roller shutter. Of course, opening the shutter will give you faster shutter speeds and fantastic bokeh. But it can also obscure parts of your subject’s face. Use Dog Photography Natural Light. You don’t have to worry about flashes and complicated lighting settings when shooting dogs Photography. The best option is to use natural and constant light; this won’t scare them or make red eyes on your photos. https://www.clippingpathclient.com/dog-photography/ Whether you use ambient or studio lighting, the general rule is to choose bright, diffuse lighting that will help create a more pleasing portrait. If you’re in a slightly darker environment or your puppy doesn’t respond well to bright light, you can always increase the ISO for faster action shots, even in dark weather. High ISO, you can shoot quickly! When taking photos outdoors, sunny weather is ideal for balanced, diffused lighting. A sunny day is more challenging to take pictures than a sunny day, so don’t worry if the weather is sunny. Focus On The Dog’s Photography Eyes Your dog’s eyes should become the focus of your Photography. As humans, we are well connected with eye contact. Please focus on the dog’s eyes and use them to your advantage for dog photos. This, of course, draws the viewer’s attention to the subject. Focus on the eyes first, then reset focus as needed and apply the method again. The moving picture of a dog gets attention. It’s like a picture of a man. You can use your eyes to create depth, an unusual eye colour, or to create a sense of privacy. Use a wider aperture (f / 2.8 or less) to improve this feel! https://www.clippingpathclient.com/car-photography/ Add People To Dog Photography. The best photo of the dog alone or the owner is a classic photo. Use automatic lighting to prevent lightning from disturbing animals. The standard 50mm lens is ideal for this type of image. Shallow DOF (Depth of Field) focuses on the object in the centre of the frame, so keep your eyes focused. Remember to live fast when taking photos like this, as animals can quickly get into trouble if they take photos outdoors. Choose An Excellent Background For Dog Portrait Photography The background of the frame is as important as your content. Get a beautiful background in a different colour from the dog. Tree trunks, wood, gates, benches, bricks, and doors make beautiful backgrounds or frames for photographing dogs.

My Unofficial Official Idol Best Friends
So as Kpop fans, we all know it's healthy to be crazy and delusional with a healthy dose of keep your distance (and maybe a bit of sanity). So excuse my unreasonable rationality on this. (Or maybe it is rational). #healthyimagination Since I have been k-popping it for some time now, I have developed this group of idols I swear I would be best friends with based on their and mines (and my current friends) personality. I'm mean with reason, I have to at least measure the friends I hang out with now to see if I could hang out with these idols? Right? Wrong? Who cares..... So here is my list of best friends starting with my closest one. FYI the stories of our friendship might be a little bit long and totally made up ^^...... First up we have the ever so adorable Baro. Yes B1A4 Baro would be my best friend. In fact, out of all the idols I know (I haven't met any yet) Baro is the one I am closest to and I have known the longest. We can chill talking about music, movies, games, books, and literally anything that comes to mind. We will always be there for each other since nothing is more important to us than our friendship. And all though we love each other, we are reasonable enough to not drop anything we're doing to go running to each other. We will check up on each other to see how the other is doing if we couldn't hang out for awhile. Especially after things like a break up or a relative passing or even issues with our careers creating an identity crisis for us. Visitations are always in order and having/owning a key to the others house/apartment is a requirement. Long story short, I will always be there for him. And he will always be there for me. Seeing that we are both September babies with our birthdays just 5 days apart (Sunwoo on September 5 and me on September 10), we work well together when we set off on any type of project. Of course we would bicker like real siblings, and drive each other crazy. I mean who wouldn't if they have known each other for as long as we have. To top it all off we are super supportive and critical of anything the other does. An example is if either one of us wanted to go down a different career path and wanted to go to school for it. We would weigh out the pros and cons and then we would check the reasoning for said friend embarking in a new direction. (FYI: following the dreams of your idol is not the same as following your own dreams, unless you're the lead female in Playful Kiss starring Kim Hyun Joong and Jung So Min then it is okay because he is your dream and you must follow your dream to the end of the earth and then get married to said dream. Good luck with that!!! ^^) So basically us Virgos will stick together through thick and thin and be the bestest friends forever! Next up on my friends list is the fiercest and most misunderstood (well, one of the most misunderstood) females I know. It's the one and only HYUNA!!!!! For years now my poor friend has been over-sexualized and thus criticized for her over flowing sex appeal. But to be honest, Hyuna is a really sweet girl that loves to party and have fun. At the age of 22/23 we still want to be young and milk our youthful features and figures for all it's worth. Being normal and conservative is overrated and unnecessary. And to be honest, Hyuna is very outspoken (with reason) of what she wants done. I will admit that Hyuna is more attractive than I am. ~(>^~^<)~ But that's cool. Together the two of us have amazing one-on-one girl time. Chatting over our favorite foods and downing all the sweets that we can get. Talking about whose the hottest idol and whether or not we like him and then being upset if the other doesn't agree with us. Of course, we dish details about current boyfriends or crushes and we size up whether the guy is worth the trouble. We spend time window shopping and eventually buying things for each other and ourselves. Since I'm not too big on 'ink' (tattoos), we agree that a charm bracelet unique to the two of us is what we need to identify our friendship to the world. Since Hyuna is older than me (by only 3 months), she gets to obnoxiously play the older sister and act like she knows more than me and is more mature than I am. But to be honest we're both mentally still kids. #kidsatheart #youngforever Over all, Hyuna and I share a unique bond that cannot be shared simply through words but felt whenever we are spotted together. Forever my best friend. Forever my ride-or-die. Forever my twin. Next up on my list of friends is someone you wouldn't have expected. I haven't known her for long but ever since we met, we clicked and that was that. My Goofy/Derpy twin, Hani. As one of her closest friends, I get the privilege to call Hani by her real name Hee Yeon. Together Hee Yeon and I are like two peas in a pod. We're either smart together or we're dumb together. And on the off chance that one of us understands something the other doesn't, we generously explain it. But our slowness is our charm and a charm only we allow ourselves to laugh about. We honestly don't mean to be slow, we just don't catch on to things sometimes. We don't always have slow moments though, there are times we are super into a conversation and know everything we can about it. These said conversations are not always about idols but mainly about things that really interest us; starvation, animal cruelty, third world problems, money and taxes, and ever so often we throw in a good mystery book or drama because we just love our mystery. Over all, you can catch Hee Yeon and I throwing weird faces at each other while taking selfies or wearing matching outfits to show case our unique friendship. Next up is someone everyone needs....... Everyone needs at least one obnoxious friend that you want to beat up but still love and will defend because you know that they are good person. Well that person for me is Ji Hoo. Yup, none other than Block B Zico. This boy loves to mess with me and my love for owls. (I totally have an obsession with owls and have tons of owl jewelry). Every time I call his name (Ji Hoo), he starts echoing me with his own set of 'who who', sounding like an owl. /\(>_<)/\ *angryface* Clever and mean at the same time, Ji Hoo, is the special third inclusion to my Virgo club (starring Me, Sunwoo, and Ji Hoo of course). Ji Hoo always leaves me speechless with the lyrics he writes for his songs and then stunned at how annoying he can be. Same as with Sunwoo (Baro), I argue with this boy like a true sibling and defend him just them same. No one can talk bad about my brother but me (and well his older brother Taewoon of course). Unfortunately Ji Hoo and I get very heated in arguments and refuse to back down. We might spend days not talking to each other but I would eventually give in since I don't know how to keep a grudge (no seriously I don't). In the end, among us Virgos, Sunwoo, Ji Hoo, and I, we have formed our own little click and occasionally hang out together. Our own version of the Three Caballeros or the Three Musketeers. We're not exactly a rough bunch together but we know how to have our own type of fun. Finally my newest adorable and talented friend is Yoda....lol I mean Chanyeol. EXO Chanyeol is a relatively new friend for me but we work well together with our passion for music. The two of us often joke around that we should have known each other when we were young so that our relationship would have more stories to it. And it's true since we already act that way. My Yoda and I are always true to each other and ourselves and the best part of our friendship is our ear for music. Honestly if I were more inclined to when I was younger, I would be a talented pianist and guitarist by now. But even though I'm not I still listen to music faithfully and I can tell whether I like something or not and why. There is always something about the beat not matching the lyrics or the right words or phrase not being used when writing lyrics. And my Yoda confides these things to me among others he trust because he wants to me the best musician he can be. So these are my five. And now I am honestly wondering if any of you other Kpop fans have your own group of idols you want to be friends with. Give it some thought and if you want to, you should post your own story of what your relationship would be. I'm personally asking if @poojas, @PassTheSuga, @MattK95, @jiggzy19, and @aabxo would like to give this story-telling a shot. “If you think anyone is sane you just don't know enough about them.” ― Christopher Moore, Practical Demonkeeping ^^V If you think I'm crazy then your just not sane enough --- @stevieq (Me) ^^V I do not own these photos ㅠ~ㅠ
How To Survive Your Very First KCON, Advice From A KCON Veteran
For K-Pop fans here in the United States, KCON is hands down the biggest event of the year. It's not only an opportunity to meet up with fellow fangirls (and fanboys!) and make new friends, but it's pretty much a huge Hallyu party, complete with K-Food vendors, celebrity panelists, and - of course - live performances from some of the hottest idols of the year! With KCON finally branching out and coming to BOTH coasts this year, that means a whole lot of you are probably heading out to KCON for the very first time! As a self-described 'veteran KCON-er' myself, I've decided to throw together a fun survival guide for first-timers complete with some exclusive photos of KCON from past years! Dress Comfortably! When you're at the convention, you're going to be doing a whole lot of walking around. Make sure that you're not only staying hydrated (keep some cash handy for water), but you're wearing comfortable shoes and have something to hold all of that K-Pop swag you're going to end up collecting throughout the day. (There's a LOT of cool giveaways, which means a LOT of stuff to be lugging around!) Get Ready To Dance All Day! KCON is full of plenty of opportunities to get your K-Pop dance on. Not only can you join in on a flash mob, but there are also special events throughout the convention where fans can teach and learn the choreography to all their favorite K-Pop songs! Be Prepared For Some Epic Cosplay! Cosplay isn't just for anime conventions anymore! KCON is PACKED with people dressed up as their favorite idols and music video concepts. In past years, I've seen fans arrive dressed as anyone from 'Bar Bar Bar'-era Crayon Pop to 'Doom Dada' T.O.P himself! Ask The Panelists Questions Some Crazy Questions! The celebrity panels are one of my favorite parts of KCON, and it's because you get the chance to play interviewer and ask people whatever they want! In fact, here are some things I found out just by getting to ask different KCON panelists weird questions: John Major, the songwriter behind EXO's 'Growl', has a pretty surprising favorite K-Pop song: 'Turn It Up' by T.O.P of BIGBANG. Lydia Paek might help choreograph and compose some of YG Entertainment's hottest singles, but she's also a licensed pharmacist. When Josh (AKA YouTube celebrity The Korean Englishman) sings karaoke with his friends, his go-to track is 'Supermagic' by Supreme Team. When you get to KCON, review the program, pick out panelists you'd be interested in meeting, and think about what weird questions you'd like them to answer. It's a lot of fun! Impress Your KCON Bias With Your Korean Skills! Fan meetings are probably the most exciting part for many of the fans attending KCON. Depending on what type of ticket you buy, you can get a chance to meet your favorite idols - you might even score yourself a hi-touch or autograph! If you're selected to attend a fan meeting, make sure to get there early, and in the meantime, practice what you're going to say when you finally get to meet them! (Even if you're not an expert at Korean, they'll really be touched that you tried your best.) Want to learn some Korean phrases? Check out @kpopandkimchi's How To Talk To Your Oppa collection. Attend The 'Danny From LA' Live Taping! Danny Im from MNET's 'Danny From LA' shoots a special KCON episode every year on the main outdoor stage, which means that even if you don't gain entrance to your favorite group's fan meeting, you can be in the audience for their on-stage interview! 'Danny From LA' loves bringing fans on stage to meet their favorite idols or participate in some sort of game, so who knows? Maybe you'll even get to be on TV! Show Up Early To The Pre-Show Red Carpet! A couple hours before the concert starts, select fans will be able to attend the pre-show red carpet event, where all of the artists on the evening's line-up will come out to be interviewed by the media, greet the fans, and pose for the cameras - including yours! If you're selected, make sure to get there as early as possible so you get a good view. (Shout-outs to the guy in the red hat here that kept blocking mine!) Go Crazy At The Concert! Once you get to the part we've ALL been waiting for, make sure to scream as loud and as often as you possibly can. All KCON attendees are usually given some sort of lightstick, so make sure to shake it back and forth to support all of your favorites. And DANCE! Dance by yourself, dance with your friends, heck - dance with some strangers! Being at a K-Pop show means being surrounded by people that are just as obsessed as you are. (Believe me, you won't run out of things to talk about.) And, that's it! That's all of the advice I'd give to all of you Vinglers attending KCON this year. I hope you have an amazing time and enjoyed this card!
