First: go vote for me on the "Best English Language K-Blogger" poll over at HiExpat: there are a few days left, and I'm within striking distance of fourth place... Roboseyites, Represent!
Second: It's BLOODY COLD! I don't think I've ever seen it this cold in Seoul before.
And here's the PSA: Until it gets a little less frigid, don't forget to run your taps for a while, and flush your toilets once or twice, at night before you go to bed, so your water pipes don't freeze and explode overnight. The older and smaller the building you live in, the more this applies to you.
In tribute to the cold, here's a song with "cold" in the title: "Cold War," by Janelle Monae, one of the hyper-talented young artists making music today. Remember in 2000 when Alicia Keys had her song "Fallin'" out and everybody's ears were pooping with excitement at what had just come across the airwaves? That's how stoked I am for Janelle Monae's career. More about her later, or at least more videos of hers.
This one's a good one, too: the whole video is done in extreme closeup on her face, which makes the performance really intimate. Plus, she can sing like a house on fire.
