The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 363

If you have been following this series (or even my blog in general), you know how very sentimental I am and how I enjoy commemorating special dates, milestones, and memorable moments. Today happens to be one of those days as one year ago today, G.O stepped upon the stage and sang for us one more time before entering military training camp four short days thereafter. It is silly, but for some reason remembering that snowy Valentine’s Day is making me tremendously emotional as I sit down to write. I write through my tears often so it is ok that they fall today. I chose to write a Vocal Virtuosity moment for today as the time is actually quite perfect to revisit G.O’s performance of his incredibly smooth and sweet Play That Song from the I.Callist Vocal Idol Show on 14 February 2016.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 362

When we least expect it, G.O launches a selca attack and frenzy ensues. Because his military time is being satisfied via public service, G.O is given a little more flexibility in how and when he can utilize social media. He has been incredibly tactful and discreet while still finding ways to connect and issue what we like to call, survival reports. He gave us an earth-shattering one back on 4 February and here on Day 362 of his service, I share it with you.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 361

Remember back in July-August 2014 when the Ice Bucket Challenge was going viral to promote awareness of the disease amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)? If so, then you will remember that G.O was challenged by comedian Kim Ji Ho to take that challenge and bravely allowed an entire bucket….no, ice cooler of water poured over his adorable self.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 360

I will agree that often when taking pictures with people there is a need to lean or squeeze in to be captured successfully in the frame. I may be stretching things a bit here, so humor me. One of my fave little nuances of G.O is his lean in and/or head tilt when he is taking a picture with someone. I do not believe it is always to say, stay in the frame of the picture, nor he does not do it all the time. But, he does it often enough for me to take notice.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 359

Let me just cut to the chase for this Fan-Camming Friday by saying that anytime a fan cam features an accidental flash of otherwise covered up skin and a wink, along with outstanding vocals and provocative choreography, it easily reaches that gold standard of fan camming. This is my choice for Day 359 ~ one week from the year marker of G.O’s service. A cam from amazing masternim letsgoinho taken at the Human Target Awards on 22 November 2011.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 358

Over the past few days I have been giving lots and lots of love to G.O’s past involvement with the neo-soul R&B trio, Tykeys. It is part of his past that I feel was an incredible stepping stone to get him where he is today and not just musically. I think G.O’s time spent with Baek Soo Kyung and Kim Hyun Jung gave him experience and direction that supported and indeed fueled his creativity. He learned about synergy and collaboration which I believe every artist needs, and which he has become keenly adept at. My G.O One Shot for today is a little homage to G.O’s Tykeys stage presence, in .gif form.

The Soulful Countdown to G.O’s Discharge ~ Day 357

In 1985, I made my first journey to Fairmont, Indiana. A friend and I drove from Chicago in a blue and white 1957 Chevy Bel Air two plus hours into America’s heartland. It was summertime and we were making our first visit to the hometown and burial place of the late and iconic actor of the 1950’s, James Dean. Thus began my love affair with the mercurial actor (proves in some small way I was always destined to be a fangirl ~ *smile*). Today is 8 February and is also James Dean’s birthday. Were he still alive, he would be celebrating his 86th. I can think of no better way to celebrate than being able to honor one of my all time favorite actors of the past with my new found favorite artist of the present. Today, my soulful countdown ode to G.O comes by way of his ode to James Dean.
