More Mischieviousness

Edward Goes Solo!
Nah, the Boys didn’t break up to go on solo careers. Joseph and Tommy have done several solo videos, so I guess it’s now Edward’s turn. Unfortunately his solo effort further highlights his biggest weakness—of the four Boys he is the one whose lips synch the least. Joseph is the most consistent, followed by Tommy; David is more hit-and-miss. C’mon Edward dear, just work your mouth some more (I know of several who’d want to help you with that)!

Joseph Discovers Chroma!
Notice Edward’s background? Nope, they didn’t shoot this outside during a full moon. That’s chroma for you, folks. Have you noticed in those making-of documentaries, especially with special effects-heavy movies (for example, The Matrix or Star Wars: The Revenge of the Sith) wherein the actors are shot with a green (or blue) screen behind them? With chroma, you can “key out” (it’s like erasing) the green color during post production and “replace” it with whatever existing footage you have and make it the new background. The first time I noticed the Boys’ use of chroma was with Joseph’s “Love The One You’re With” solo video.

It looks like the Boys are becoming more and more elaborate with their video production. Check out the following below.

The Boys Go On Location!

Okay so they’re indoors, but at least they’ve moved on from having just a plain background. Who knows one day they’ll have a video of them lipsynching in some exotic location like, oh, East Timor, Trinidad-and-Tobago or Riverbanks Mall, Marikina. Who knows, they might already be shooting there right now!

(Thanks to Green Space Singapore for the images. For some reason the Boys’ website is unavailable today. Hmmm… did the Backdorm Boys a.k.a. Two Chinese Boys sabotage their site?!)

Shet, how tempting! But I can imagine my interview at the US Embassy in Manila:

CONSUL: State the reason for your trip.

ME: I'm going to Sacramento to stalk four guys who lipsynch.

(Consul stares at me for a long time then stamps my passport)

CONSUL: Denied. Next!

So I'm a little bit confused: they're based in the US, but are they, like, a new sensation there in Manila? Or just within the gay grapevine?

btw on a totally different topic: that horrid Korean girl whatsherface--who blandly sings "In or Out"--has she left the country? Is she still being idolized???

Hahaha. Sandara Park? Never heard her sing, but I saw here on a TV drama once. Thought she was kinda cute.

Re Mischievious Boys: If we base it only on the different links in their website, I guess they're quickly becoming a hit among gays on the internet. How popular are they? I really have no idea. :-)

Re Sandara: She disappeared for several months because she went back to Korea. But now she's back in Manila and is active again in showbiz. She and Hero Angeles are not a loveteam anymore. She's not as big as before, but still quite popular and identifiable.

saw this linked from the MischieviousBoys.Com Link Page. ... Re the Asianboynation video:

My first reaction was: awww... that's too bad... (and ok, maybe "gross" too like Ms. Anonymous posted). Now it'll get really controversial to bring them over -- there goes a few prospective product endorsements!

Then: hmmm... he IS sexy.... and hmmm.. controversial is always good in the land of weekend-afternoon showbiz chismis shows...

And then: hey, I've got to see the rest of the boys, too! MLQ3 is right!

I don't agree. It doesnt seem to be a single, bad decision sort of thing. But according to other links, he's been doing this for some time. And not even tasteful or artistic stuff (if porn can be such a thing!) It's pretty sleazy and raunchy.

It seems like if Joseph had friends in the other boys, that they would temper some of their blind devotion and recommend some counseling for sexual addiction. He can use that sort of tough love.

Porn is porn. I agree that minors should not have access to it.

As an adult, I enjoy some variety of it. Tasteful or artistic is often a matter of taste: one woman's art can be another woman's porn. A lot of guys out there enjoy what other people might consider sleazy and raunchy. While no one should force what they're passionate about on anyone, I think everyone should just let them enjoy their own stuff.

To make a judgment on anyone's psychological profile or to insinuate what his friends ought to do in this case is,imho, going a bit too far and to me sounds self-righteous. Of course, we all are entitled to our own opinion.

I don't think Joseph or any of the Boys have done anything irresponsible or wrong.

Meanwhile, the Mischievious Boys will continue to be my heroes. I do not espouse for them to be any child's role model; nevertheless, I personally look up to them as living reminders that being oneself is enjoyable.

... ok, time to play a video to dance to and be happy about before I take a shower and get ready for bed...
