When I was pulling together my fav songs of 2018 playlist, I realized a small flaw in my system of tracking new music. There are a couple of weeks worth of songs that cross over the new year. Playlist #14 has a few songs from the end of 2017 and a few from the beginning of 2018. This means that I when I hit on a song that I loved, loved, loved, I had to confirm its release date before I could add it to the 2018 list. But it also meant that I was reintroduced to a few tracks that I absolutely adored when they came out but lost track of as I waded through what 2018 had to offer.
It was an interesting KMorning! When Xe announced to the group that the CW was in talks to do a remake of Strong Woman Bong Soon with Rhonda Rousey, I almost did a spit take. While I wanted to be excited that another Korean title was doing it’s level best to jump over to the American market, and while yes, the main lead is, in fact, a strong woman, I was fairly horrified of the idea of Rhonda Rousey as the lead.
There is something to the idea of fate or a higher power or higher powers deciding our destiny. I both love and hate it. I mean, when I really mess up in life, it would be nice to be able to blame it on the pre-ordained whim of some god out there or some bitchy sub-god taking out her bad day on a random human. But, at the same time, I would like to be able to claim responsibility for my successes. And I do so love a coincidence. Coincidences don’t fit well with fate.
All the dramas I’ve been watching lately seem to keep falling pretty high on the angst scale. They’re all great dramas and I’m thoroughly enjoying them, but sometimes a girl just wants a bit of fluff and romance. I put out a distress call to SaraG and KpopontheDL for some light-hearted fun and they each came back with a Japanese drama recommendation. Of course, I had to start watching both..and they are both providing the much-needed sweetness and light. Read more
As promised we have Teacher SaraG with us to give us a much-needed lesson in Winner! Ooh, maybe we should have called this episode Winning With Winner! Too late now. We take a moment to let SaraG put us to shame with all the dramas she’s currently watching.
Ever heard of the Inkigayo sandwich? Before LizC had brought it up to the group, I hadn’t! However, rumors of this sandwich have been going around the internet for a while now, rumors of a ridiculous sandwich only available to idols, a sandwich so ridiculous that when you hear what’s in it, you step back and go…what??
Which of course meant we had to try it! Are you ready for this thing? Read more
Because I have yet to mess up writing 2018 instead of 2019, it feels like 2018 was a long, long time ago. That being said, anything released in 2018 is now fair game as a Throwback. It was a year ago after all. Not only that but this little number that has stuck in my head for what is quickly turning into months was released at Thanksgiving. That was many, many holidays ago at this point. It’s basically a classic by now.
