A lot happened in 2020. While it’s been one stressful year, it’s also been a year where I’ve pretty much stayed booked and busy and writing. So for those of you who aren’t super duper online, here’s what you’ve missed … Continue reading
Merry Christmas to me! This came a week early and so… A hasty, hopefully hilarious unboxing.
When I’m working on Day Job, writing the next thing that’ll make nerds frothy mad at me (because I’m right), or even now as I rewatch Love O2O for the millionth time, I’ve always got music playing somewhere. Continue reading
Solidarity will save us from whyte supremacy, but not with people like these publicly and purposefully acting as if wanting people who benefit from Blackness (Black fan/producer/songwriter labor on top of their endless appropriation) to speak up is colonizing them. Continue reading
Title: Ma Girl Artist: Taeyang feat. G-Dragon & T.O.P Setting: There is not much to say about the setting of this video beyond how this looks like the filming budget was light. Like I remember seeing a twitter meme asking … Continue reading

So here’s my fandom racism bingo card for… various K-pop fandoms. It’s majorly multi purpose so it can be used in reference to almost anything when it comes to racism in these fandom spaces. Continue reading
I didn’t expect that I’d be writing about the Black Lives Matter movement in the context of Korean pop and hip hop music – or their fandoms. But that’s what this post is actually about – barring some all too … Continue reading
Have you checked out the rest of the works in this year-long project yet? The first time I think I saw a “But Namjoon” in the wild was almost a year ago when Stray Kids’ Bang Chan came under fire … Continue reading
Back when BTS was a baby group, they were subject to what seems (to me, as a fan coming later on to the group) like a really disproportionate amount of criticism. One theme that got the group loads of criticism? … Continue reading
Episode Notes: Did you catch the previous episode yet? That was an hour long review of BTS’ Map of the Soul: 7! And, unlike this episode, it has a transcript! There’s a chance that I mispronounce Sik-K’s name when I … Continue reading
