I’m revealing what my very first DBSK video folder looked like. In lieu of conventional dates and even song titles, my favorite way to name performances was by outfit color. It also appears I thought stage lighting was particularly descriptive. But “Talk First Then Sing” definitely takes the cake! In fangirl theory it was supposed to make identifying videos easier. Now that it has been 10 years I can laugh at my file-naming ways. It’s funny because downloading was the only way I could watch videos back then, meaning I had a lot of practice naming files. Yet I continued with my special descriptions until about halfway though the Tri-Angle/Miduhyo comeback cycle. It finally hit me that DBSK would have an indefinite number of performances and I needed to find an organizational solution. Yes, I graduated to the trusty method of date + title! The 10th Anniversary is near so I’ve really been in a sappy mood. I keep trying to summarize 10 years into a singular picture in my mind. This screencap of my ancient DBSK folder is one of the many images there.
It’s been 3 years since the announcement of the lawsuit, 2 years since Jaesuchun started promoting as JYJ and 1 year since Homin started again as DBSK. At the end of last year I came to the peaceful realization that DBSK as 5 will always be precious to me. I should continue to enjoy the happiness they gave to the fullest. This doesn’t mean the heartbreak is gone, it’s just that now I hurt less and savor more when watching old videos/performances.
Tone and In Heaven coincidentally are released on the same day 9/28/2011 but more importantly, it’s that the boys have steadily continued on. As should we.
(Just a year ago I could not picture what it would be like when both sides promoted at once.)
I wish there was an automatic picture saver, video downloader and file organizer for my fandom needs. No matter how attentive I am, I simply can’t collect everything but I feel this intense need to.
(Endless activities and 8 years later… life in this fandom is hard indeed!)
It was a struggle in the beginning for me to accept the boys were doing official ‘THSK’ activities. The first THSK song I fell in love with was My Destiny. It’ll always have that soft spot in my heart.
(This song made me feel like maybe Tohoshinki could succeed after all.)
The letters HD and HQ make me a very, very, very happy fangirl.
Conversely, LQ literally makes me cringe.
(those who are avid downloaders, especially before youtube existed know exactly what i mean! my heart goes out to you hehe)
