One of the things about Korean television that I enjoy is the fact that they have no fear about going into a series and saying, "One season, one story. Done." In English-speaking television, this is rare enough to snag alternative titles like "miniseries" or "limited engagement". For Korean TV, it's pretty much the norm. They… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #26: I’m Not a Robot
OH MY GOSH. I watched the first episode of the Cardcaptor Sakura continuation series Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card (which you can check out yourself via VRV or Crunchyroll streaming), and I just about died from how successfully Madhouse recreated the tone and joy of the original anime (you know, 18-years later). Of course, the nostalgia of it… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #26: Cardcaptor Sakura: Clear Card is Nostalgia Crack
So, I had this bright idea to give it a shot to do today's on my phone. Got all the screencaps set-up, starting pounding out the draft and realized very quickly that it's not as easy to manipulate HTML in my posts on the mobile app. Fuh. Thus, another late night post. It's okay, I'll… Continue reading Manga Monday #26: Fictional Skin
Ah, love. TWUE LOVE. What's better than a good love story? I mean, come on, isn't that the whole reason the Hallmark Channel exists, because we just love stories of love so gosh darn much! The tropes of romance are easily consumed, and thus are the perfect crutch for lazy storytelling. Pixar has a unique… Continue reading Freebie Friday #25: “It only took a moment to be loved a whole life long.”
Seven years ago this July, I was a 20-year-old newly married youngin' on my week-long honeymoon in Anaheim, California. Of course, five of those days were dedicated to my new husband's and my Disney fanaticism, fed quite nicely with Park Hopper Passes for Disneyland and California Adventure. Ever since we first vaguely discussed our marriage… Continue reading Thursday Threads #25: Disneyland Honeymoon Couples T-Shirts
With its February release (THANKFULLY) closing in, Black Panther has us pumped for what will be a movie of a lesser-known hero who must face his royal birthright in the face of adversity after his father's death. T'Challa's story, filled with minority characters who dodge their typical tropes, is long overdue. There has been a long-unfulfilled… Continue reading Watch Wednesday #25: Black Panther Trailer Screencaps
If you were watching Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve, then you watched BTS hit a worldwide scale of exposure. Rocking two insanely well-choreographed performances, their hashtag, #BTSxRockinEve, actually went on to completely obliterate the show's original hashtag on Twitter. Yes, BTS is going to take over the world. “i can now see why people like bts”… Continue reading Tuesday Tunes #25: Happy (BTS) New Year!
HAPPY NEW YEAR! How did you spend your New Year's Eve? For me, that was fireworks, a warm dinner, puzzles, games, and a toast at midnight. (Oh, and watching BTS on Dick Clark's New Years Rockin' Eve. SO EPIC.) I feel like things like this--toasts and watching the ball drop--are fairly typical in America, although… Continue reading Manga Monday #25: Komi-san’s Japanese New Year
