Show Notes

This episode we’re talking about a pretty serious topic — what butt-holes commenters on the internet can be. In particular, we were asked to chime in on an issue going down on Tumblr & Twitter regarding racism in the Kpop fandom… and again… the general butt-holery of the internet. We asked friend and Kpop fan Alexis to join us. We also talk BTS and the AMAs and discuss the reasoning behind those shortened drama episodes.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Workhorses of Kpop

Posted by SaraG on November 9, 2017

Music

It finally happened. For the first time. I actually forgot that I had to put a post up today…you can tell because I’m posting like HOURS later than I usually do. I woke up from a long dream about living in a haunted house where the ghost took on the shape of my youngest daughter and I had to figure out which was which and then I panicked. Crap. I hate missing a deadline…it’s the rule follower in me. Stephanie doesn’t even care, it’s not like she’s paying me to get this up before the sun rises. She isn’t paying me at all…at least not in cash money. She’s paying me in Hobi gifs and fan fic.

Everythings Coming Up BTS

Posted by Stephanie on November 9, 2017

Music

Ugh, my phone ate this post. The entire thing. Who has two thumbs and is not pleased? This girl. How can an irritation this deep be cured? My guess is only a Hoseok gif can do it. 

Oh yeah. That’s the stuff. I now have the will to go on.

I want to say it’s been a while since we’ve had anything BTS on the site now, but that would be a lie. We’re all big fans, there is no hiding that. However, as we now have Ms. SaraG and Ms. Alix doing the music posts and Khottie respectively, I can say that I myself haven’t brought up BTS in a while. Unless you listen to the podcast. So, it’s no secret we’re fans, but now, now I can say that they have officially infiltrated the US.  Read more

Fun Friday: An Un-Elegant Evening

Posted by Stephanie on November 8, 2017

Fun Friday

I don’t know if you remember way, way, way back I happened to mention a project I was working on, a little thing that became my big, big, big super gay fanfiction. Topsu? Ring a bell? Well, what feels like many years and 200 THOUSAND words later, I finished it last month. Afterwards I found myself at odds, what should I do now? Well, one great suggestion from the Denver crew later, and the Topsu Meat and Cake party was born…

Here’s a little secret. (Hey, you know about the fanfic thing, why hold back now?) I heart a good theme. I heart themes and themed parties. I heart themes and theme parties and hot glue guns.

After some hemming and hawing about when to have it, I realized something momentous. My birthday was November 2, which fell on a Thursday. T.O.P’s birthday is November 4th, which is on a Saturday. Technically, his birthday in Korea falls on November 3rd here (time zones man, time zones). Friday happens to be the day the Denver Crew usually gathers to eat, drink, and make K-merry. Perfect right?

So the Birthday Topsu party was born. Let the crafting begin. Read more

Musical Monday – Earth Tone Sweaters are Everything

Posted by SaraG on November 6, 2017

Music

A few months ago, when I was totally overwhelmed by the number of fantastic songs being released, I slipped the song Sorry by The Rose into a post with a million other songs. That was a terrible injustice. I went on to listen to that song on single track repeat for days and have watched the video an unhealthy amount of times since then…including the last two Friday nights during girls night AND Stephanie’s Topsu Party. I’m sorry, The Rose, it was my fault for not giving you the spotlight you so obviously deserve. I’ll try to make it up to you now.

Show Notes

As Stephanie is hastily putting finishing touches on not only her TOPSU meat and cake party, but also her latest Nanowrimo attempt, it seems the perfect time to whip out the Fanfic: Your Dirty Little Secret panel from KCon. We chat about the stigma of not only reading but writing fanfic, the history, the allure, and also dip into the different types and tropes — and generally have an awesome time.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – What Can’t He Do?

Posted by SaraG on November 2, 2017

Music

I’m always a little skeptical when famous actors try his or her hand at being a singer or rapper. I think that it often happens that when a person is super talented at one thing, they start to get a big head about how good they are at everything. It doesn’t help that they are often surrounded by folks telling them how wonderful they are all the time…including people like me that are prone to fawning. I know there are plenty of folks that are actually good at everything, but again…I’m skeptical

Khottie of the Week

What Up Khottie readers! It’s Stephanie’s birthday today!!!!! Besides the massive Topsu party that will be taking place tomorrow evening in Denver (if you will be in Denver feel free to come!) we thought the best way to celebrate would be to highlight all the khottie’s in Stephanie’s life! So in honor of the fact that the only thing Stephanie loves more than blogging is a theme, here is an early Khottie post crafted with love to tickle her fancy on this special day. Read more

Musical Monday – And Another Obsession is Born

Posted by SaraG on October 30, 2017

Music

I have always loved stars. I like looking at the night sky, I liked my college astronomy classes, I doodle stars all the time…on everything, and I have over a dozen stars tattooed all over my body. In my travels around the globe, I have met and become close with so many people that also draw stars almost compulsively. When I look down and see a constellation on a napkin or receipt, I know that this person, whoever it is, is my kind of people. It’s nice, like a secret handshake. We don’t even have to interact beyond the acknowledgment that we are, in some mysterious way, similar.

Khottie of the Week: Seo In Guk

Posted by Alix on October 28, 2017

Khottie of the Week

Anyone who knows me well can tell you that I go through phases (just ask SaraG). I’ll find something I think I’m madly in love with, whether that be a specific song/album, a type of food or an individual (these days it’s almost always a k-individual) and I’ll binge on that item for weeks. And then, suddenly, usually out of nowhere, I’m over that obsession and left with five bags of kettle corn and a has-been potential UB that I have no real interest in anymore.   Read more
