The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 442

It may not have been to the degree of previous ones, but there certainly was some levity and fun back in July 2015 during the Mirror fan signs. And yes, there were some toys that intrigued our playful main vocal. The G.O One Shot comes in .gif form today, a slice of fun from the Ilsan fan sign on 26 July 2015.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 424

It has been two weeks since I posted a Vocal Virtuosity moment here on the countdown which is partially false since any time I post G.O singing anything, it is a VV moment. In fact, today this post can double as a VV moment as well as a Fan-Camming moment and had this been Friday, that would have synchronized quite well. But alas, it is Sunday. A perfect day for a ballad. A perfect day for 나무 [Tree].

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 383

It is difficult getting back into the groove and routine of my every day life since returning from Seoul. Keeping up with my countdown posts however seems to be flowing ok. At least one thing is staying consistent. For some reason (probably because I have the heart of a five-year old child), I am really looking forward to hitting Day 400. Milestones. You know how I feel about those.~^^ Even though there will be over 300 days remaining at that point, I still find myself full of excitement as we get closer to discharge. Likewise, every moment I get to sit down and write about this amazing young man makes me happy. Today (as you can see) is a One Shot day. It is also time for a one shot .gif. Lately, I have been longing for Mirror ~ the song, performances, just anything Mirror-related. To quench a little bit of that thirst, I will share a few short G.O .gifs from one of the many performances of MBLAQ’s exquisite and haunting title song.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 331

As we near on the one year mark of G.O’s service, I have been wondering if I should do anything different for the final days here on the Countdown. I thought about scaling back a little and really making it simpler – as was my original plan until the series took on a life of its own. I keep telling myself that any little bit will still be amazing since, well…it’s G.O! So I think my best option is to just go with the flow and let the series decide ~ let the inspiration that G.O gives to me continue to be the barometer that dictates what I do and how I honor him during 2017, and that last month and two weeks in 2018. Sounds like a good plan, right? For today, Day 331, it’s a Fan-Camming Friday and I wanted a cam that was a little more recent. My choice is some G.O-focused Mirror from MBLAQ’s June 2015 Showcase.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 300

Three hundred days! Three hundred days! Three. Hundred. Days. It is Day 300 of G.O’s service and that means he is almost to the half way point in completing his mandatory military service. Before we know it, he will complete his first year. I wasn’t sure how to celebrate it and then thought…why not keep it simple. As in, simply share one of the finest photographic captures (EVER) of G.O’s incandescent smile. Yes, a perfect smile on a perfect day.

[event] One Mirror A Month

For some time now I have been wondering what I should do with my surplus copies of MBLAQ’s 8th mini album Mirror. I have already given quite a few away, and I even donated a bunch (in G.O’s name) to a non-profit organization here in the US that teaches music to underprivileged children. Still, I have quite a few copies left. So an idea came to me today. I am not sure how well it work, but it is the holidays so I thought I would propose an event and see how it goes.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 259

I recall feeling a rush of absolute excitement when the charmers of MBLAQ released the track list for their 8th mini album, Mirror, and there was a song penned by G.O entitled, I Know You Want Me. I could not even begin to wrap my brain (or emotions) around the fact that he wrote a song with a seemingly provocative title. And, he gave that song an English title. The anticipation of hearing a new G.O composition was overwhelming . . . I could hardly wait!
