I’m a writer in my late 20s, trying to figure out love, life, and how to get the most out of my MA in Literature. I love research and, no joke, analyzing the heck out of every single piece of media I consume – so expect a lot of that here.
I’ve got an an opinion on basically everything. If you like strong opinions, candid talk about mental/physical health and trauma, and the occasional ode to fictional characters, then you’ll probably love me.
And if you don’t… oh well!
This blog focuses on analysis of nerdy media, book reviews, and lots of commentary about race in fandom and the source media that spawns our favorite fandoms.

I’m putting things together for March and this is what my schedule currently looks like! Three of the things are catch-ups (2 for my site and 1 for Patreon) but everything else is fresh content that is NOT carried over … Continue reading
Quick Coverage: All Eyez On YunB Proving Why East Asian Appreciation and Appropriation of Blackness Are Two Sides of the Same Antiblack Coin
I know that not a single one of y’all wanted to know that there’s going to be a South Korean musical version of Tupac’s life called All Eyez on Me performed by a cast that, as far I can tell, … Continue reading
Jump into Indescribable Joy if you’re not ready for the rage: On February 11, 2020 twitter user @revegina uploaded a ninety-two second video set to SEVENTEEN’s만세(MANSAE) that highlighted several supremely antiblack moments in the relatively recent history of Korean pop … Continue reading
If you’re in or adjacent to Korean pop culture fandom spaces and somehow thought we’d be ending 2019 without further antiblackness from idols or their fans… a) I’m not sure how you got to that conclusion considering how bad 2019’s … Continue reading
Few fandoms fill me with the kind of anger that the Star Wars fandom does. In fact, there are times where I’d go so far as to say that I hate it. Times like Wednesday night. When I got home … Continue reading
At the end of the day, it’s not like I was expecting a single person on this podcast to talk about East Asian antiblackness or antiblackness in general. So I’m not actually trying to place my own burden of responsibility on them. But I feel like it was a bruise on an otherwise genuinely awesome episode because there was no need to zero in on Black Panther in the way they did, I feel like… it wasn’t a great moment and it was unnecessary on top of that.

So I’m going to keep going.
Thank you for coming with me for one more month. Continue reading

Sup sweeties? In case you didn’t know (possibly because you’re not on the US’ East Coast or because you’re not in the US at all), September (the peak month for the Atlantic Hurricane season) started with Hurricane Dorian inching its … Continue reading
ETA: I legitimately have NO idea what this hurricane is doing or when it’s doing it. Right now it’s off the Florida coast pummeling the Bahamas and it’s supposed to go north at some point today. Who the hell knows. … Continue reading
