Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Tunes to Fly To

Posted by SaraG on April 27, 2017

Music

Much like any idol, when I am jetting off to far off places for gigs, I am highly concerned about my airport fashion. I mean, when people are bound to be taking pics of me and splashing them across the internet, I want to look my effortless best. I like the casual look, artfully ripped jeans, a plane but hugely expensive t-shirt, a face mask, and a luxury brand clutch. Part of my ‘I’m hugely famous but I want an ounce of anonymity whilst I’m traveling’ look are my earbuds. I always have them plugged into my head to keep me separate from the rest of the masses. I feel that they give me a tiny bubble of separation from the chaos.

Some Drama That We Used To Know…

Posted by Stephanie on April 26, 2017

Casting News

New drama alert! And the best sort of drama, the kdrama variety. There is an upcoming drama which hit my radar screen which I’m actually sort of excited about, not so much for the drama itself, but because it reminds me of another drama.

Oh. And the possible casting. Read more

Musical Monday – The Many Bored Faces

I have a weird and completely unexpected soft spot for IU. Her music and persona are definitely not a style that I tend to fall for. I’ve historically filed her under the ‘talented but not my thing’ category in my brain and moved on. But when she appeared on Infinity Challenge and was all goo goo over Hyukoh, I had to take a second look. She seemed to have good and interesting taste and therefore maybe there was something else in there for me to get attached to. AND THERE IS.

Fun Friday: Bias Madness!

Posted by Stephanie on April 21, 2017

Fun Friday

Friends say the darndest things. Leila (KpopontheDL) said “Hey! I have a fun game and if you really are my friend then you’ll play!” (Okay, I may be taking creative license here but she’s off on holiday in Paris and can’t fight back so…neiner neiner.) Now that it’s over I have to say it was a really fun time and I loved interacting with my friends, seeing how creative…and pervy they were. In this post I thought I’d share the game and my answers.

How the game works:
Each day, players will receive a scenario and two numbers that correspond to the bias names on your numbered bias list.
Underneath the scenario for the day, in the comments, respond with a picture of both biases, their names, and your reasoning for your choices.
We are working our way down to a final bias so the winner of each scenario will go on to play again. The loser is lost forever!

So here’s my list: Read more

Good Morning, Friends! Just a podcast announcement. Due to some issues we’ve had this week, the podcast will be late. I promise, we are not skipping the week, just running behind. 

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – City Life

Music

Getting recognition in hip-hop as an Asian artist can be incredibly challenging. Think about how many Asian American hip-hop artists you can tick off on your fingers…the number is limited, am I right? And no, that doesn’t mean that there aren’t that many out there, there are…we just don’t know them because our music industry, like all of our other media, doesn’t give them any due attention or respect. To combat this, there are a handful of different projects and companies working to narrow the gap between the east and the west on this particular front, and I am in full support of their work.

Now that the angsty whatnots of the last few days are over, let’s get down to business. The business of talking dramas. Although, I’m going to immediately get sidetracked and tell you what Jami McFeeley told me about impending Running Man cast changes. It’s not enough for a whole post but it made me laugh. Apparently, Mr. McFeeley has decided to give them a fair shake and wait for their episodes to make a decision–because he is good and kind like that. But Mrs. McFeeley? Well, she will always have a warm fuzzy place in my heart and here’s all the explanation I need…

Hahahahhaa
Agreed. Mike drop.

That’s been my last day. The site was down for almost an entire 24 hours. Did you miss me? Did you wonder where we were? What happened? If we were coming back? …..Or is it possible you didn’t notice we were gone at all?

GAH! If the answer si the last one, please keep your yaps to yourselves as, as I’ve mentioned, it’s been a very trying day.  Read more

I will freely admit that I am not a young man in my early to mid-twenties. I have never been and will never be that guy. I don’t get the burgeoning need to be all manly and dominant. I don’t really understand the desire for a girlfriend who is really immature, a danger to herself, needs to be constantly protected, and can’t be left alone. It seems to be a cross-cultural phenomenon though, I’ve seen it all over the place in both fiction and reality. How many of us confident, capable, smart ladies out there have felt a bit left in the dating dust by some cute little thing that can’t be trusted to use a can opener? But man, songs written by those guys about those girls can be super charming.
