300,000 Videos and Happy Late Birthday!

I wanted to post a drawing of Jaejoong for his birthday, but my roommate’s scanner won’t scan to my computer—so that will have to wait till the weekend when can use my scanner at home. But just so you know we didn’t forget,

HAPPY (belated, as usual) 24th/25th BIRTHDAY, KIM JAEJOONG!(Your picture will be up presently. ^^;)

Now on to the next item of business:

I’m sure many of you have already seen this video, but I just wanted to help spread the news:

(credit for these instructions goes to oneTVXQ, where I found them.)

I just recently finished my own (the audio is a little weak, so you will probably have to turn it up to hear) and I hope every fan that reads this will follow suit:

The Neomyth

The new myth of Cassiopeia
brings our heroes now to make their choice:
they are the Gods the Queen once scorned
with misplaced vanity in her voice.
Now repenting, her skeleton of stars
in the sky above flushes red as Mars
as she sees the astronomical mistake
that in praising her beauty o'er theirs she did make.

She reveres now and loves them as is her place—
And through their journey gives them aid
as they seek the greatness that is their fate.

Because now you, these heroes, like all on such roads
have reached—or yet crossed!—the thresh hold of “known”
and are come to the trials you must pass to grow.

So, New Gods Rising in the East,
rivals of Apollo who shares your path:
Outdo him—even in the skills he made!—
as you do the sun his car draws aft.
Surpass that sun with the stars by your side,
and be the power that gives us life:
rising in the East, setting in the West,
spreading light to the North and South you pass—

or become at least your very best.
Though the sun shone brighter we would love you better,
more luminous in our eyes than can light express.

YouTube Channel and All About International Cassiopeia

Cassiopeian Moon (that is, Wasur3naid3 and I) have recently revamped our YouTube channel—which basically just involved uploading all the projects we have recorded to date. We are still working on subtitling some of the material, however. We should be posting all uploaded videos to the blog as well—but all in due time. On that note, here is one of our most recent uploads with some context.


This video was made for and submitted to the All About International Cassiopeia Project hosted by O! (inspired by the AADBSK series). I would highly recommend all of these videos (clicking on the title will take you to the YouTube playlist—there are 13 videos of 10 minutes each). I’ve almost finished watching them, and never cease to be amazed by how talented Cassiopeians are—it must have something to do with the quality of their source material, don’t you think? ^o~

Our clip is featured in the 5th video, at about 6:35
I am also in the 11th video, talking about what TVXQ means to me, starting at about 3:00

One day I wrote their name upon the strand...

...and then I got my mom to take a picture of it!
(OK, so that's not how the poem goes. But it is what happened!)

The "strand" here is Taino Beach in the Bahamas.

Happy (very) belated anniversary, DBSK!

Fansong Project

Regarding the post below. . .
I had been meaning to put the International Fansong Project Video here, as it is a massive fanwork that both Wasur3naid3 and had a small hand in making--that is, we added our voices to the menagerie of other fans' to create a more global picture of DBSK's fans.
Here is that video, along with the one advertised below. Both were compiled and edited by Catherine.
