Build This City on Rock 'n' Roll.

I've got to get something off my chest, you guys.

I recently discovered that the Time Warner Cable TV package I subscribe to includes a channel called Mnet. This high-numbered (Ch. 342 on my dial), Seoul-based cable station seemingly exists exclusively to help spread the gospel of K-Pop to the States. All day long, it broadcasts music videos and either subtitled or English-based programs focused on the musicians behind the rash of supposed international hits it airs.

It's pretty great. It's like the '00s never happened over there. It's all boy bands and girl groups. Expensive music videos are the norm. The beats are gaudy. The fashion is excessive. The broken-English lyrical asides are pretty hilarious.

I'm kind of obsessed with it, which, yes, I acknowledge, is a little weird. Aside from the rare English-based artist music videos they play (Rihanna, Big Boi, Nicki Minaj, Kid Cudi and The Wanted are all in rotation), I have little to no clue what these people are singing and gyrating about.

And yet here I am, fully entertained. I've stayed up for, like, three nights in a row watching it. And now I'm tired.

So, tonight, I'm probably going to sleep. That or stay up and watch more Mnet.

I suggest you do the same. Not able to? Well, fortunately enough for those of you who you find yourselves hopped up on caffeine and/or without a cable subscription this evening, there do happen to be a few things going on tonight that you can go do if you're bored.

Lucky you.
