Coincidentally, I found / discovered David Choe through the infamous TigerBelly podcast with Bobby Lee. I probably did hear of him before, but didn't really 'really' find out what he was about. But now - his thoughts, ideas, artwork, show is growing on me bit by bit. Like other personalities that I am fan of, not everything is to my taste or agree with. But as long as the majority is - that should be enough. *ALL IMAGES / ART IN THIS FAN PAGE IS CREATED BY DAVID SOE (FROM HIS TIKTOK OR SHOW).
WANTED POSTER - LAST SEEN IN FREAKOUT VIDEO AGAINST CHOE - BOUNTY / REWARD AMOUNT NEGOTIABLE
MY CLASSICAL MUNKO:
CONTINUED ENTRIES / THOUGHTS:
Whether you're the "Watermelon Dress Suit Guy" or just the Glasses Guy /Gal, all I can say is - let your creative juices flow. Whether through art, skits, videos, dance, music - etc.
I would for sure take up a Choe Therapy session, but fortunately for me - there is music for me.
Stay safe /Safe travels, Munko Roland! Any Munkos out there, help support Roland. Hiking across country (especially if you are traversing into unknown mountains) is not only tough, but also dangerous (who knows what wildlife lurks out there - and your usual hillbilly in overalls (remember that "Harold & Kumar" hillbilly mechanic who picked them up due to car troubles come to mind). haha).
08/08/22: Munkos In Action
Whether you are hiking cross-country or trying to sell 200 soda / chocolates by this day, you are a Munko. Munkos do what they are passionate about. Munko do activities they want to do with no shame, guilt but out of desire / passion. Munko is the arts - painting, music, etc.
My Munko mission: to effortlessly play the entire J.S. Bach's "Goldberg Variations" without getting tired or fatigued. This piece as a whole is like a marathon - an entire night of a Concert's worth (well over 90 minutes with repeats). I've recorded / uploaded the individual Variations, practicing them individually one at a time. But playing all the Variations in one go is the challenge.
Before Munko Choe, there was Hitchhiker Choe. The Creative Artist Choe has always been there, but I'm just beginning to find out that he is more than that. Full of passion, energy and not giving a fuck (or completely relaxed or it so it seems). Who else can go on what would be considered just insane / crazy adventures to an ordinary person? Hitchhiking itself is dangerous - more for the driver picking up the Hitchhiker actually. I can never do it. Nonetheless, this is what makes Choe unique and compelling. As well as his vast array of artwork.
Hey, Munko #536 (haha) - Good luck on your journey as I just finished mine. Well, I began a new one (as a parent and a classical piano enthusiast). Whether tutoring or teaching is in the works, that's up to me to find the energy / motivation to do. Everything boils down to creating your own business considering that you can no longer trust society / institutions. Times have changed, and are continuing to change. There are just more efficient ways of learning. Unfortunately, society will never get that nor do they have the ability to. But then again, why should we give a rat's ass since all of us are doing things are own way anyway.
06/10/22: My Munkoo - First Draft / Version
But Obstacles Abound
Keep Fighting And Supporting
To Overcome Thrive And Celebrate
Our Great Heritage Unique
Loud And Proud
06/07/22: My Classical Munko
In the spirit of Munko, I have made one of my own (that reflects me):
For awhile, I had thought it was Bobby "I Look Like A Hobbit / Eggman" Lee that had returned haha.
05/18/22: Munko Quote / Tweet Of The Day
Lovin' the "Lonely Whale" theme song haha - add a few more verses or lines, and I'll gladly add it to my playlist.
Being a Munko / Choe disciple, gotta love the words of wisdom. Sometimes, a few words can say much more than a whole novel. Here are some epiphanies for the day:
Although the person is another or different "Bobby", I'll have some fun. "Sorry, Bobby Lee - there is apparently a "short"-age in minivans. So no car for you." hahaha.
Unfortunately, I can't find my red string. Or I never even had one. But after waking up from a bad nightmare when I turned 40 long ago, It's ok though. I'm immersed in music. Which is therapy in of itself. Self-expression is masturbation indeed.
Get in on the Munko fun via the Munko discord (if this screenshot is any indication, looks hella therapeutic / interesting haha):
What is this Munko / Phase 6 deal? I definitely agree with this, when it comes to opinions and sharing your thoughts - there are no wrong answers. If everyone considered their opinions / preferences / prejudices as facts, the world would be ending now (or the world would have ended long ago).
However, what looks like a retreat from that tiktok video sort of unnerves me - the "David Koresh" type of uncertainty / creepiness (right, Geoff? - and no, it has nothing to do the with the Book of Yiddish) hahahah. Nah - I'm sure it's quite therapeutic. Trust in Choe.
Reality and conventional methods / means no longer make any sense to some of us, or no longer that effective (as opposed to other methods, but hey - whatever works). The only things that make any sense are common sense and compassion, and using intuition / instinct to capture emotions / express emotions through music, art, etc. Only through these mediums can there be any semblance of hope for humanity, as bleak and miserable as it is becoming.
Some of us might be intrigued by Choe's Circle Back idea. It'll certainly give coming "Full Circle" a whole new meaning haha.
I'm usually looking forward to or on the lookout for more content on TikTok - they are refreshing content. I'm guessing the slowdown is perhaps because of being busy or other reasons.
By the way, I always wondered if the Bobby Lee guest spot on the Choe Show a new one or an old episode. Either way - a prequel or a sequel to the Bobby Lee freakout on TigerBelly hahaha.
Steve-O not only embodies the "No Pain, No Gain" expression (his brutal "Jackass" stunts), but also makes a fine "Living Art" hahaha. What can this guy not do haha.
I also truly believe you have to "Make Your Own" or "Create Your Own". This is a messed up world or society we live in, and the gate keepers are not going to hand things to you. This is how Asian-Americans need to continue to speak out and create. Otherwise - being complacent or submissive, you are always going to be enslaved to them.
