Song of the Moment: Lorde – Tennis Court

  Baby be the class clown, I’ll be the beauty Queen in tears It’s a new artform, showing people how little we care, yeah. We’re so happy, even when we’re smiling out of fear When I find a song I like, I get the album but usually just end up listening to that one song…

Song of the Moment: Orange Caramel – Catallena

When I first heard about Orange Caramel, I was seriously creeped out. Aing~ was such a cute song, and I felt like it was totally pandering to the guys. The guy I was seeing at the time totally went for that aegyo ultra cute style so I was doubly uninterested by them. Then I heard…

Week of Television: Is this real life?

image found on flickr I’ll be honest, all these shows are pretty bad. Not bad like yesterday’s post when I wondered why they were still on the air. These shows are bad from their inception. They’re the bad TV that people judge you for, that if I’m being honest I judge me for. But there’s…

Week of Television: Why am I still watching?

Look out below! There be spoilers everywhere! Hai. So, no post yesterday because I came home and promptly collapsed in bed because yesterday felt like the longest day of my life. So much work, so much studying. One more class then I can sleep the weekend away! But, on to today! This TV entry is…

Week of Television: New Kids on the Block

Look out below! There be spoilers everywhere! There’s a lot of great new television out there, here are my top five new shows. Almost Human We’re presented a world where technology can no longer be controlled, crime has risen to near uncontrollable heights and as a result every police officer is paired with a robot…

Week of Television: Television around the world

Week of Television! Whooo~ Happy March! Birthday Month! Today’s entry is all about my television watching habits. I watch all sorts of television, animated, live action, sci-fi, thrillers, action, you name it 9/10 I’ll enjoy watching it. The only genre I don’t really like is horror, which is why I struggle with some police shows…

Album of the Moment: Girls’ Generation – Mr.Mr.

I am not a SONE, for a long time I didn’t like the group because of my own insecurities. Nine perfect girls, being flawless all the time, it made me feel really bad. So I refused to listen to their music, I think for a while I was vocal in my dislike of them so…

Where in the world is Miles Morales?

While cleaning out some old programs, I noticed Comic Rack, and I realised I hadn’t read an Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man book in a while. I checked the wikipedia page with glee, assuming I would have a backlog to catch up on, but it turns out the series was cancelled. -insert sadness here- Clearly I’m not a…

Reborn Babies. Plastic dolls, real love.

Photo credit: Amanda Young I have been deeply fascinated with Reborn Babies for years. Any time a documentary on the topic appears I can’t help but sit and watch the whole thing. It’s considered normal for little girls to play with dolls, but adult women playing with dolls? That’s weird right? Do you want to…

Song of the Moment: Dillon Francis – Without You

This song is a few months old, and I probably wouldn’t have heard listened to it, had I not used Google’s Play Music App’s I’m Feeling Lucky Feature. It’s a smart shuffle, based on the types of music you’ve been listening to recently and the songs you might not have been listening to in your…

Frozen (2013). Do you want to build a snowman?

As always, there are spoilers below. This is a story about love, family and the power of fear. I haven’t included a trailer in this review because the trailer isn’t very good. I didn’t actually know anything about the movie before I’d watched it, only that it was sorta based on a fairy tale by Hans…

Song of the Moment: Kidnap Kid – So Close

Now we’re so close That nothing could tear us away We’ll never fall As long as we’re in the same place It’s 1:47am Tuesday 21st of January 2014 and this is my new song of the moment. I have been sitting at my computer for the past six hours trying to finish this assignment and…

The Tomorrow People. I keep watching, but I’m not sure why.

Okay, I am sure why, it’s because there’s this over arching theme that I need to freaking know about. Where the balls is Stephen’s Dad? Who are Ultra really? Is that serum really stripping them of their powers? And why the hell is Stephen so strong?! Oh right, spoilers ahead.   The Tomorrow People (even…

Song of the Moment: T.O.P – Doom Dada

 “Long time no see.. “ Don’t worry if you don’t understand Korean, he isn’t really saying anything revolutionary,  just that he’s a badass. He’s not lying, he is. T.O.P is one of the few rap artists that I listen to in English, Korean or any other language. Out of the Korean artists I’ve heard rap,…

The Great Gatsby (2013). Do you believe in the Green Light?

The Great Gatsby (2013) is a movie adaptation of a novel of the same name written by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1925. It’s a story about nothing, everything, life, love, obsession and the human condition. We are thrown into a world of opulence, theatrics, beauty and the muchness of life in 1920s New York and we’re told…

Song of the Moment: Bombay Bicycle Club – Carry Me

You know that band that consistently put out songs that you like, but you have no idea who they are? You vaguely know the lyrics to their songs, and you sometimes randomly hum some of their melodies, but you’re not sure what their name is. When their song plays on the radio, you smile, remember…

Song of the Day: Haim – Forever

I initially dismissed this band as a boring high-exposure manufactured band so it is a little ironic that the reason I gave them a chance was because of the Made in Chelsea Soundtrack. Turns out I was wrong! They aren’t some record label’s assembled puzzle, they’re a three piece sister act who seem to have…

The Internship (2013). Warm Fuzzy Googley feelings.

Spoiler Alert: Some, minor spoilers ahead. I know most of us use Google Services, but ask yourself this very important question. Do you love Google? The writers Vince Vaughn and Jared Stern really want you to. If Google was a cult, this would be part of the promotional materials used to convince new recruits to…

Album of the Week: Bastille – All This Bad Blood

I’m such a sucker for indie love songs. I am and I don’t much  care who knows it! All This Bad Blood is a re-release of Bastille’s awesome album Bad Blood with a few extra songs thrown in for good luck.  If I had to describe this album in one word, it would be ‘haunting’. The combination of…

Song of the Day: Lorde – Royals

I didn’t think I liked this song, but then I heard Alex’s cover and really got into the drumline. Now relistening to the original it has grown on me. It is such an easy listen, super repetitive and with the catchiest chorus I’ve heard in a while. The lyrics are really interesting too. They talk about…

Welcome to The Dark World, Man.

I’ve talked about how excited I am with  Marvel Cinematic Universe plans in a previous post and now that 2013’s part Phase 2 is over, I thought I’d revisit the subject. I have not been disappointed. Spoilers will abound, so read ahead at your peril! Iron Man 3 Despite, hating Iron Man as a kid I consider…

Ender’s Game (2013). The trouble with Thirds.

A while ago Boyfriend shocked that I hadn’t read the book lent me his old copy, and I promptly put it on the shelf for several months. It wasn’t till I saw the trailer for the movie that I actually got around to reading it, so I am coming at this from the point of…

I’m going to name my cat Cheska Binky.

I heart Made in Chelsea. I feel like this is the kind of show that I should love ironically while rolling my eyes and mocking the sheeple who fall for this ‘entertainment’. But I love it. I truly love it. Each episode is like one giant advert for trendy places in London. It’s like the Real…

Sex sells, but it’s boring.

IT’S ME – KAHI (가희) ~ #I’m so bad girl, I’m so cool girl, I’m so sexy sexy sexy girl.# I am so over sex selling everything. I don’t mean I want everyone to be covered up Amish style and be ashamed of their bodies, I’m just over companies thinking they can slap a pair…

Little Mix sing in Korean? Alright.

Can’t say I’ve ever really paid any attention to the group, but if this is legit (and I think it is) it is very very cool. Sounds like a K-Pop song, I’m actually a little impressed with their pronunciation. Maybe they’ll make it big in Korea? Who knows. I hope this is the start of…

Man of Steel (2013). Growing up is tough.

Here be spoilers, many of them. Continue at your peril if you haven’t watched the movie! A friend asked me to go see this movie when it first came out, I said no. I have never really been a DC fan, and I know that it is blasphemy, but I really did not enjoy the…

Brown Eyed Girls – Black Box (2013)

BEG have always been a raunchy group and I dismissed them for always playing on their sexuality. There’s nothing wrong with playing up your sexuality, but when that’s all I’m constantly bombarded with it feels a little meh. Besides their debut track Abracadabra I haven’t listened to any of their songs, so I’m coming at…

A-Babies Vs. X-Babies. Cuteness overload.

In a world where you favourite heroes are still in nappies, two groups fight over ownership of the most adorable bear. The disclaimer from the beginning of the book really sets the tone for how silly it all is going to be. The Avengers and X-Men are always fighting to save the world, but what…

5Dolls. CCM has no idea what they’re doing.

Korean Entertainment companies take on several idols, some in groups some as soloists and promote them. Even though each promotion has a different concept, it is easy to pick out the role that each idol plays in the group. As with any company, the last thing you want is consumers to be unable to differentiate…

f(x) – Pink Tape (2013). I love it.

f(x) always have really strong releases, and listening to this album there are so many standout tracks, I’m really impressed. Usually in an album there are three ‘single’ worthy songs, but this album is just full of them. As always, this group is able to flirt with the line between sexy, cool, fun and cute…

Meet Miles Morales. Spider Man.

Spider Man has always been Peter Parker, and Peter Parker has always been Spider Man. Let me be clear, this is not normal. In the comic book universes it is not uncommon for more than one person to take on a singular persona. Even Batman who is synonymous with Bruce Wayne has had others wear the…

The Samsung Galaxy Mega. Bigger is better.

I have the Samsung Galaxy Note, and while some people (haters) have said the phone is way too big, I love it. It’s big enough for me to type with two hands, watch videos without too much eye strain and overall it’s pretty nifty. It is a bit dated now, the Note II is out,…

Moon (2009). Reality is fiction.

(to avoid spoilers, only watch the trailer to 1:00) There will be spoilers, so if you don’t want to encounter spoilers, then you probably shouldn’t read any of this. We are told that in this future we have exhausted our natural resources and the world as we knew it was dying. But the good news is that we have found a…

The Wu Tan Clan’s ASL interpreter is pretty badass.

Last week Wu Tang Clan performed at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, but it isn’t their set that everyone is all excited about, it’s their ASL interpreter. While I can’t say I understand her signs, she’s clearly the star of the show, throwing her all into the music and really getting into it. The video…

I Give It a Year (2013). Very English.

  There will be spoilers, so if you don’t want to encounter spoilers, then you probably shouldn’t read any of this. If you don’t understand or appreciate British (English) Humour then you should probably stay clear of this movie. I have no idea why I thought this would be a suitable watch for my mother and I, it wasn’t. Nat and…

Google announces ‘Project Loon’.

When I read the announcement I had to check the date to see if it was April 1st. It is not. This is a real thing. Google the internet company wants to bring the internet to everyone. In the promotional videos they are very quick to explain that by everyone, they truly mean everyone in…

How Iron Man 3 Should Have Ended.

Obviously all kinds of spoilers. Oh man, Iron man 3, is basically The Incredibles. This just reminds me that I haven’t posted my Iron Man 3 review, I’ll get on that.  

BBM is coming to Android and iOS this year, and nobody really cares.

BBM (which stands for Blackberry Messenger) for the unfamiliar was one of the first texting apps (that I remember and used) available that used data. As the name suggests it was exclusive to Blackberry handsets, each phone came with a Pin that you would use as an identifier to allow friends to add you.  …

Welcome to Level 7.

Marvel is cashing in and cashing in fast! I should say that I love this new reboot of their film and TV franchise because it’s very rare that I can get my parents (who am I kidding, family) to watch and more importantly enjoy watching nerdy things with me. We all knew that they were…

All audiences are not created equal.

Samsung. Samsung, Samsung, Samsung. We’re not in South Korea. We are not South Korean people.   This makes no sense to a Western Audience.

Celeste and Jesse Forever (2012). It hurts.

  There will be spoilers, so if you don’t want to encounter spoilers, then you probably shouldn’t read any of this.   I can’t remember what I was watching or where I saw it, probably flicking through channels one day, but however it happened I came across a video clip for this movie. Rashida Jones…

Pitch Perfect (2012). Acca-scuse me? Acca-believe it!

A few months ago I was browsing Tumblr and I saw this hilarious gif set of Rebel Wilson on the set of her new movie Pitch Perfect and I couldn’t help but laugh. I watched the trailer and laughed some more, and from that I was pretty much sold. Tumblr is great for movie and…

Real Husbands of Hollywood

If you haven’t watched this show, then you should get on it right away. It’s so funny! I’m 10 minutes in and I had to pause it to give my sides a break!
