Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Works of Art

Posted by SaraG on February 6, 2020

Music

I know, I know, I did a post on Nu’est in December and December wasn’t that long ago. But I’m the one writing the posts and I’m going to have to go ahead and write about whatever it is I want to write about. And that, my friends, is Nu’est. 

My husband is out of town this week – traveling to see a concert in LA and then backpacking the Channel Islands while I hold down the homestead and make sure the kids stay alive. Managing all of the activities and homework and meals all – on top of my full-time job – is admittedly a lot. How single parents do it all the time is, frankly, magical. But I also have to say, in some ways, it’s a nice break. There’s nobody to question my decisions or confuse my well-laid plans except myself. I’m the only one to blame if things go wrong and that makes for far fewer arguments. It also means that if I want to have a friend over to watch Nu’est’s backlog of reality and variety on YouTube for countless hours, then I can have that friend over.

Concert Review: Bewhy in Dallas

Posted by SaraG on February 4, 2020

Music/ Reviews

I am no stranger to flying to some random city for a concert that will likely never make it’s way to my hometown. It’s just part of being a fan of international music and having a little bit of expendable income to throw at it. My husband also flies to see shows, but he’s never gone to a Kpop or a Khiphop show, so when he signed up to see Bewhy (his proclaimed UB), I didn’t think to tell him what it would be like. I didn’t explain to him that it would be a tiny venue that probably didn’t sell out, I didn’t inform him that we would be the whitest and oldest people in the room, and I didn’t share that once the music started, it wouldn’t matter.

New Additions To the LGBT List: The Age of the Short Film

Posted by Stephanie on February 4, 2020

General

I hadn’t realized how much time had escaped since our last addition to the LGBT lists! I spend so much of my time watching these dramas, I think I’m always yak, yak, yaking away about them! Actually, just the other week I started Why R U and was thinking about recapping it! Anyway, this time around we have a strong showing by China with a lot of short films which, as the way of the LGBT short film, could be a crapshoot for ending well. We also have a couple of additions to the HIStory series which, I really thought I’d added on before, but turns out? Nope. How can this be?

Anyway, let’s take a look at the newest additions to our LGBT lists! Read more

Musical Monday – So Different, Still Kpop

Posted by SaraG on February 3, 2020

Music

This week I had the pleasure of attending an all-day training for work on how to better plan for supporting the needs of members of our community with access and functional needs. It was a good training, but to be honest, I’ve been to tons of these and there wasn’t a lot of new content. But, honestly, it was still extremely valuable. I went because we were the host agency and I wanted to make sure that we were well represented but also because I love any opportunity to network with other first responder and first receiver partners. Effective disaster response is largely who you know and how well you know them so it’s important to develop and maintain relationships. 

This is going somewhere Kpop related really quickly, be patient.

VANNER: Denver’s First Kpop Concert

Posted by Stephanie on February 2, 2020

Music

One of the things I had to weigh when I moved to Denver, and I mean it was a serious check in the con column of the move, was giving up the easy access to Kpop. Sure with the internet and a built-in kpop loving friend group, it wasn’t like I was totally bereft, but there’s a difference between being able to hop on the PATH train to the Playstation theater (Prudential Center if the group was big enough) and seeing my choice of Kpop groups. Could I give that up? Sure I could still go to concerts, but now it requires logistics, time off from work, flights, and accommodations. It’s a bigger deal time and money-wise. The truth of the matter, as much as Denver was considered a little big city with lots of culture and music and breweries around every corner, Kpop just wasn’t going to come here.

But just last week, that changed. Studio PAV, who specializes in bringing smaller groups to the US, allowed the fans to decide from a series of voting rounds, where the next group was going to. And Denver won one fo the slots! Yay, Denver! So last week, VANNER became Denver’s first-ever Kpop concert. Read more

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Oh, Those Dulcet Tones

Posted by SaraG on January 30, 2020

Music

I’m still friends with a LOT of people that I’ve known since high school – really since elementary school – as once I’ve got my hooks in you, I never really let you go. But I’m also the type of friend that might come up with some big ideas of things we should do together that might best be left in the fantasy realm. Not that the ideas are bad, oh no, they just aren’t always practical or you know, realistic as compared to my strengths and talents. Like if I ask you to start a singing group with me, know that I am not super skilled in the vocal department. It would not be wise for you to say yes no matter how much you love me. You should say, “why don’t we just watch some music videos instead.”

Cordon’s BTS Visit

Posted by Stephanie on January 29, 2020

Music

As BTS readies to release their new album and ARMY braces to submit themselves to the battlefield that is tickets buying for the upcoming BTS tour, it’s time for the boys tdo start their promotion. Over the weekend we got a visit to the Grammy Awards where they did a split performance and now what we’re really waiting for, their visit to The Late Late Show with James Corden. I love his interviews/events with Kpop artists! Their last visit where JHope and Jin get the crap scared out of them by flying fruit? Or did you see Jackson’s visit where they shared things from their home country? A visit to The Late Late Show is going to be the cutest, less cringiest US interview out there. And I can’t wait to see it!

Although I did have to wait as I don’t have cable, so let’s watch the Youtube clips together! Read more

Jang Hyuk, Thrilling Again!

Posted by Stephanie on January 28, 2020

General

You know how, when I was talking about Taecyeon’s new drama and it sounded really cool and then I watched the teasers and was super underwhelmed? Well, I’m happy to say, Jang Hyuk’s new drama appears to be the complete opposite! (Although I’m not quite certain I’m happy about what picking up another drama is going to do to my schedule…)
