tbh I quite enjoyed this video. i thought the editing was ok and she wasn't trying too hard to be funny, which can be very cringe-inducing at times. Also ngl, i can find her relatable~ in this video, with her experience moving abroad and trying to adapt to the different environment and culture (plus terrible housemates, stolen food and all).. But differences are that i made the move from the east to the west, will be here longer and i'm not here for modeling.
Oops. My bad. Didn't click on the stereogum article just now as I was reading from another source (but now I have) Errrr lmao what's with that pic for her pregnancy announcement... We only passed one week into the new year and 2020 is already giving me a headache (edit) OK I have to say I laughed at this:
damn, i didn't realize Using You got taken down.. I thought the case has been settled out of court and Mars own the grocerybagdottv yt account now though...? what's happening.. lol @ corey using his brother as his mouthpiece now. geez
lol yea. I was thinking of Morena as well when i read that Kenna said that she's definitely gonna release the her poetry book in 2020... She's most likely going to take the easy route and self-publish through Amazon like Morena. Unless... I'm underestimating her pride and she ends up trying really hard to go through a legit agent and publisher. Doubt that she will make it though because 1. Her "poems" are really nothing to write home about and is at amateur level. 2. Traditional publishing and editing would take more time and for her book to happen in 2020 is... very unlikely. Plus, Kenna is a terrible procrastinator and her "book" isn't even fully completed yet. 3. Lbr, Kenna has never been serious about poetry and it's all for the aesthetics~ What's the point in going through the more well-recognized but difficult way of publishing when she will never be taken seriously as a poet considering the standard of her work and her lack of drive in improving her writing.
I have not checked it out but apparently the whole of her latest album already leaked a while back but she's acting like nothing happened. lol Out of her recent releases, imo: a) We Appreciate Power (I know this song is not included in the Miss Anthropocene final tracklist)--> Evangelion fan here, so i enjoyed the vibes from the lyric video but the song itself is eh, it's ok. b) My Name is Dark--> Big fat nope from me. The Evangelion references are more obvious in the lyric video but it still can't make up for how this song is such a bore. c) So Heavy I Fell To The Earth--> I like it. I vibe with it. d) Violence--> I "like" it but the song is ok. It kinda feels like it goes nowhere. I do really like that her Iris van Herpen dress in the MV. e) 4AEM--> OK. This shit SLAPS HARD. When the beat first drops at 0:59, phewwwwwwwW. I'm OBSESSED with this song but lbr that's because the best part of the song sampled Deewani Mastani. She did that sample really good, i must say. I thought the performance video for 4AEM was really cool as well.
This Thread 6 started at the end of September when Kenna was going on her Europe trip and was doing the whole dark academia and European-lite ("my German ancestors would be proud") phase, hence why there's only 200+ pages. Thread 5 started on January 1 when Kenna made her move to Japan and has almost 700 pages.
Apparently it's quite serious. she fractured the right side of her pelvis and wrist and also injured her face... and all this happening when Red Velvet is having their comeback. SBS really needs to be sued/held accountable considering how there were already complaints about the stage before this happened..
imo she won't change her "cozykitsune" username because she will try not to make it too obvious that she's over her "japan is my home" phase. she's just gonna play along with her "oh i only planned to stay in japan for at most a year. i really didn't plan anything." facade, even though she's denied allegations less than 3 months ago (30 September-ish) that she's moving back to California. If she did do a FAQ video about leaving Japan, she'll just downplay or won't reveal at all that she actually did try to prolong her stay in Japan. Lbr, the reason why she applied for a 6-month japanese language course, instead of a 1-year course (if she was SO wanting to learn~ about Japanese culture~) was because she was hoping to use the other half of the year to find work with an entertainment visa, which didn't turn out the way she was hoping for. (edit) thinking about the timeline, funny how right before her Europe trip, Kenna denied returning to California but.. conveniently after her Europe trip and cutting all ties with Kaila and after much speculation (from Grace and her sister), Kenna finally confirmed that she was going to return to the US... Makes me wonder if whatever bad blood she has with Kaila is actually work-related... Wish she would share what happened between her and Kaila and why she called Kaila an "ableist" but I doubt she will.
