The Black Barbie Chronicles: Getting Into It

I can remember the time when I thought I got Korea and didn’t want to jump on a plane back home.  Check out this little nugget when I learned how to respect the hustle which is Korea. Enjoy.

Getting Into It

I’ve been here a little over a month, and I think I have it down when it comes to living in Korea. Some days, I’m ready to say fuck it, hop a plane and head on home. I miss my crazy friends, good food, and great sex. Then I ask myself, I say, “ Self, just what would you be doing if you were home?”

Well, more often than not, I’d be getting into trouble, drinking and staying out way too late, and having sex; not all of it great. Then I think Korea is the place for me. Korea is where I need to be at this time in place. Who can forget the Hannu Affair? Anyway, let’s see what I can do here that I can also do at home.

Can I get into trouble here? Check. Can I stay out way too late drinking coming home in the morning, showering, and going to work? Check. Can I have crazy friends? Double-check! Can I have great sex? Well, the jury’s still out on that one; however, I do have some feelers I’m working on.

Look Korea is not the Mecca or Paradise some jackass foreigners may claim it to be. Korea has issues and problems, just like any other country. One can not come here, expecting to “find” themselves. If you want to lose yourself and avoid people at home, sure, Korea is the place to be.

Every day I am learning something new about myself. I’ve learned how to order food. I’ve learned how to conduct banking business. I’ve learned how to get a taxi and tell the driver where I wanted to go. I’m able to ask for help when I need it. I’ve done all these things without speaking the language. Take that America Land!

I’ve had good days and bad days, but the good outweighs the bad. The good and bad days can take place anywhere when you think about it. However, Korea has really pushed me out of my comfort zone and forced me to realize that yes, I am an idiot who can drink like a fish and curse like a sailor. However, I able to be alone in my own skin, and I’m okay with that. Now I’m off to find great sex.

Noir Saturday: The Big Night

big-night-original-1951-title-lobby-card-film_1_2d80ce8b3add0feefbe5414307c7f344

Here’s tonight’s noir, The Big Night.

Nineteen-year-old John Barrymore Jr. made an impressive starring debut in The Big Night. Barrymore plays George La Main, a young man whose father, ex-boxer Andy La Main (Preston S. Foster), is inexplicably beaten up by sportswriter Al Judge (Howard St. John). Journeying farther and farther into the nether regions of his city’s “night world,” George tries to find out why his dad was roughed up. Along the way, he makes the acquaintance of a variety of “fringies,” played by such able performers as Howard Chamberlain, Philip Bourneuf, Joan Lorring, and, in her last film, Dorothy (Citizen Kane) Comingore. The Big Night was co-adapted by director Joseph Losey and screenwriter Stanley Ellin from Ellin’s “dark” novel Dreadful Summit.

Check it out tonight on TCM @ 11PM CST or Sunday @ 9AM CST.

I couldn’t find a decent trailer, but check out the club scene where Barrymore has a flashback to his father getting beaten up. I wish I knew the name of the drummer; he was FIRE!

What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why

by Edna St. Vincent Millay

What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why,
I have forgotten, and what arms have lain
Under my head till morning; but the rain
Is full of ghosts tonight, that tap and sigh
Upon the glass and listen for reply,
And in my heart there stirs a quiet pain
For unremembered lads that not again
Will turn to me at midnight with a cry.
Thus in the winter stands the lonely tree,
Nor knows what birds have vanished one by one,
Yet knows its boughs more silent than before:
I cannot say what loves have come and gone,
I only know that summer sang in me
A little while, that in me sings no more.

Of all the places on my must go-to list, Cuba is right at the top.  Now, I just need to figure out the logistics but I think this maybe where I go to for Christmas this year.  Yes, I plan on having a REAL job making REAL MONEY this year.  Fingers crossed.
