Oppa Gangnam Style

I think I've watched this video 10 times per day, every day for the past week.  I will now share with you the glory that is K-Pop:

Once again, J-Pop can't compare with the pure brilliance that Korea puts out every day.

Also, this is the original video from PSY, I can't decide which video is better.  But I do know that I will be buying PSY's outfits on my next trip to Korea.

 Our Beach Party in Enoshima:

Enoshima Beach

Enoshima Beach, the makeshift bars line the coast

         Yesterday I headed to Enoshima Beach despite the forecast of thunderstorms and I'm glad I did.  The weather turned out just fine and the beach was great.  Drew and I met up with some friends of friends and we had quite a fun group to spend a day on the beach with, to say the least. 

     I learned that the entire beach area is barren all year except for summer time when they build makeshift bars and dance floors all along the mile long coast.  The bars are just rolling in the money because of their overpriced drinks, but their proximity to the beach (they are literally right there on the sand) and the eclectic genres each bar has means there is something for everyone. 

       The day kicked off with some dance groups on stage, I say stage lightly because it kept falling apart as the dancers were doing their thing and finally one of the bartenders started nailing the stage back together as they were dancing. 

         My favorite part of the bar we were in was the loft that we had in the center of the bar.  We all had to take our shoes off and sit on the carpeted loft floor, the loft was close enough to the bar that we could just shout our orders and we could see the dance floor and the beach at the same time.
