Playlist of the Moment | Kpop Boygroups

Alternative title: The Kpop Boy Groups that won’t let me live. I was going to write a serious post. One full of philosophical quotes and deep thoughtful insights, this was going to be that post. Honest. But then you see, I got distracted, blinded if you will by the cute smiles, catchy lyrics and synchronised…

How I fell in L.O.Λ.E.

Don’t trust anyone but yourself with your faves. I like kpop. This is not a surprise to anyone who knows me or who has in passing read my blog on occasion. While I’ve liked idols and groups, I’ve never really been part of any fandoms. Sure I like EXO, but would I consider myself an…

Four Netflix shows that I don’t understand.

I love Netflix, my whole family loves Netflix. I recommend the service to anyone who cares to listen, and I will keep my subscription for as long as I can. Every country I’ve been to and used my Netflix account on has been a new exciting surprise treasure trove of exciting content. That being said,…

Playlist of the Moment: In the Beginning

For things to begin, things have to end. The first Media Monday, and I thought it would be a good time to talk about the songs that currently motivate me to keep going. As always, onwards and upwards!  I rarely listen to these songs together, but either I find myself listening to their radio stations (thank you…

Comedy Special: Ali Wong Baby Cobra

Today’s Media Monday is a break away from music, instead, a comedy special.  I didn’t expect to laugh so hard. I didn’t expect to laugh so hard and to find everything she said equally funny and relatable. I didn’t expect that I would almost miss my stop because I was laughing so hard, or that…

Doctor Strange Vol. 1: The Way of the Weird

Series: Doctor Strange (2015) Written by: Jason Aaron Art by: Chris Bachalo Publisher: Marvel Comics Prior to this year I didn’t know anything about Doctor Strange. I didn’t know anything about his lore, I didn’t know anything about his backstory, his associates, his powers, nothing. I am the kind of person Marvel was hoping to…

SeoulMusic2K16

Hello there family! 지난 번 이후로 오랜만에 쓰는 것 같아. I’ve just returned from an amazingly epic adventure-time in Seoul. I was gone for 11 nights, and honestly it wasn’t enough time. Seoul is a place that will always feel like home to me, and I’m already planning my return. Song of the Trip There were…

The Joys of Streaming Music

A few weekends ago I ventured into the attic to retrieve a suitcase (because I’m going on an epic adventure that I promise to tell you all about soonish) and I discovered a box of CDs, old as time. Well, not time, but you know essentially ancient. This box of CDs was like jumping head…

Six terribad songs I love unironically

I like lots of different types of music. I am not a musical snob. I watched Glee (and prefer some of their covers), but I also love and appreciate classical music. It’s a spectrum yanno? Sometimes you’re in the mood for some Holst, other times you’re in the mood for some Skrillex! That being said, there…

Star vs the Forces of Evil!

Good Media Monday to you lovely people! Yes, I am aware that it is Tuesday, but temporarily, till Game of Thrones ends Media Monday will be Media Monday.. Tuesday. Shh, shh, it’s fine. Just go with it. I feel like I was just telling you how .gifs almost exclusively influence my television viewing, and it’s…

Playlist of the Moment: Motivation 9000

Job searching is a job in itself. After almost a thousand revisions, my resume is looking pretty snazzy if I do say so myself. In the months after I left my old job, I’ve been scouring the job boards, sending off applications and meeting with recruiters to find meaningful employment. Not just any old job (I can’t go back…

The .gifs that built Television

I am a big fan of television and the shows that I try to keep up to date with weekly are: Game of Thrones (obviously) Archer Elementary Once Upon a Time Mr. Robot There are others like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Legends of Tomorrow, Flash and Orphan Black which I like, but I’m not…

Playlist of the Moment: Is it summer yet?

I am at my happiest when the sun is shining and when the heat is fierce, I can’t help but be optimistic about everything. Vitamin D all the things! What to do when it’s only April and it’s raining outside? Make yourself a playlist full of happy summer feel songs! DNCE – Cake By The Ocean…

Song of the Moment: I.O.I – Crush

Oh my gosh, 축하해! I started at episode four and instantly became super invested in the program, the group and the lives of the girls. This never happens, no really. While I love me some reality TV, I rarely get so invested that I make a habit of checking up on what they’re doing outside of…

Song of the Moment: Meghan Trainor – NO

My name is no, my sign is no, my number is no, you need to let it go. Remember when we used to have girl groups? No? Well, back in ye olde 90s and early 00s we used to have the most amazing R&B girl groups dominating the charts. Artists like TLC, (early) Destiny’s Child, Blaque,  All…

Ex Machina is potato

My love for you is potato. Happy Birthday to Mr.! As it is his birthday today, I told him that he could pick the topic he wanted for today’s blog post. He picked potato and told me to interpret that however I feel. Swell. So today, we’re going to be discussing the last movie we watched…

Produce 101: Pick Me Up!

Happy Media Monday Tuesday! Also happy Birthday Month to meee~! That’s right, it’s March which means a whole month of sunshine and happiness awaits (she says, as it pours with rain outside, huhm)! Right now, I cannot stop watching Produce 101. It’s a Korean survival style show where they start with 101 trainees from different…

Mr. Selfridge

Netflix is a wonderful service. It’s opened up a world of movies and television to me that I never would have even looked at before.  What drew me in was this wonderfully rich world of fiction that mixed in some truth that aimed to dazzle and wow you at every turn. I don’t watch shows…

Song of the Moment: Dalshabet – Someone like U

딱 너 같은 사람 딱 너 같은 못난 그런 애 만나 내 맘을 니가 알았으면 해 ❤ Happy Media Monday Tuesday! Had I written this post when I was supposed to, the song of the moment would have been Stellar – Sting, but I didn’t so here we are! This song is fun, peppy and just…

2015 Movie Stubs

In 2015, I went to see seven movies in the cinema. Actually, there might have been more (lol, memories), but I only kept seven ticket stubs, so seven is our magic number! I prefer to go into movies sight unseen, meaning I actively avoid trailers. The only ones I seek out are teaser trailers at the cinema…

Delta Air Lines In-Flight Movie Reviews

If you’ve been following me on social media you’ll have seen many of the pictures I posted online about my amazing trip to Illinois. But before I got there, I had to travel and part of that travel were two very long plane journeys. -x- As much as I love sleep, I love movies, and…
