That’s right. That’s what I said. An “ode to boys” – phrase taken from my tumblr.
Sometimes the only reason you hang out with the athletically oriented was because you wanted a cover for sitting on the bleachers during football practice so you could watch #20 make impossible catches. The quarterback would peel back, offense fanning out like cereal spilling out of a box tipped over, defense half-twitchy, and then he would be there. Somehow, his eye-line connected with the quarterback’s and in seconds, the wide receiver vaulted into the air. His arms reached out like a quick-thinking gazelle, his legs followed in a display of parabolic radiance.
For the record, the above scenario never happened to me or anyone I know. But, it wasn’t until I happened to see a wide receiver in a televised college game many years ago make such a catch that I started to appreciate the male form. And then I became quite envious that his body-line was better than mine (even after nearly a decade of ballet).
Now, back to these boys. First up. Beenzino. How could you not want to take him home and have a nerf gun battle? Followed by a plunge into a vat of jello? Peut-etre.
Next up. Boy bands.
I used to check out every new Kpop singer or group as they were making their debuts. As of the last few years, though, it can take up to a year before I look up their videos on YT. So, let the drooling begin.
U-KISS (actually, I’ve been listening to their music for over a year now):
Teen Top (I looked them up about the same time as U-KISS; I really, really love these songs):
BOYFRIEND (looked them up a couple months ago, cuteness and prettiness abound):
GOT7 (looked at their stuff a week ago and I am completely crushing. HUGE time):
— My favorite one is wearing the red Adidas jacket and the backwards red cap. His name is JB. Trop mignon! When he smiles, sweet jeebus.
— He’s wearing a gray Atlanta Hawks shirt and a blue jacket in this one. I’ve listened to this song about 100 times in less than a week.
— the beat in this song reminds me of Jon B’s “Don’t Talk.”
— I gotta say that I like the melody and beat of this song more than the lyrics, as they can be interpreted to be “awwww” and “oh-kay, that’s kind of excessive” at the same time.
