effex: Bad touch (Bad touch)

There was a hipster musician dude holding forth on the bus this morning. I mostly ignored him until he started talking about Oppa Gangnam Style, which is apparently 'by some random Korean dude' who 'randomly uploaded his video to YouTube' and is now a 'big deal'. Which proves YouTube as a platform for artists or something, I don't know, I was too busy being consumed by wrong, wrong, you are wrong.

Seriously, even I know who PSY is.

random korean dude got his fucking music degree from the prestigious berkeley conservatory here in boston, and was a huge fucking star in korea from basically the moment he got done with school. UGH, AMERICANS.

Yeah, I was just going to say, even if you knew nothing about it and did no research after seeing it, the video clearly is professional... O_o (Like, there are so many actual stories of nobodies getting famous off youtube, if you wanted to talk about it being great for artists! Justin Bieber was some random dude who uploaded videos and is now a big deal. *eyeroll*)
