Moe overload, I’ve got a Goodshirt

Moe is a Japanese term for the feeling of overwhelming cute and fluffiness for a person or object which has these properties. Tokyo girls style is another young and invaritably, cute girls pop group. It sounds like so many other bands in Japan, and Korea. At least they did it with less band members than Girls Generation (SNSD) along with a host of other bands. Cashing in on cute is big money in this part of Asia. 25 years old, is, too old as most of the singers on the Jpop/ Kpop music scene are less than 20 years or younger. I can think of a few legalities in being too young. Wouldn’t they come under minimum wage and get paid miniscule amount of money an hour? Can they even enter into a legal contract since they are so young?

Commenting on the video, it was a parade of cute girls on one set only, extolling their love for someone. Boring. Not that love itself is boring, I cite that the way it was put was boring. I remember when music videos actually did something and told a story; was something creative. I am I getting too old?

  1. I don’t think it’s fair to say that today’s music videos aren’t any good by using a Japanese girl band video as proof – boy/girl band music videos were always garbage, from Bananarama to New Kids On The Block. But yes, you’re definitely getting too old to be watching that drivel.

  2. Different mindset back in the 80’s as compared to contemporary music. Or should I say MUZAK.

    Having talent has no bearing now-days and though I did listen to the music video twice. Once was enough for my wife.

    Though I could have written an entirely new entry on this aspect, (pop) cultures of Asian and Western sphere are different.

    Yes I am too old for that drivel, but back in the day, boy bands were less annoying, and I might add, had a nuiance of talent.

  3. I enjoyed it too.
