“A Small Book of Whimsy” Excerpt

I wrote a book. Its on sale at Amazon, but I want to remove it because its not formatted well, my cover art was done all wrong, and basically I dislike everything I write once I spend a moment to consider how badly it's written. This is the Prologue... that I forgot to place in … Continue reading “A Small Book of Whimsy” Excerpt

Musical Love from #HoloEN Debuts and AMAZEMENT

I had to watch all five V-tuber debuts in the last couple of days. I think I owed it to English speakers everywhere. No, haha, I was just curious, and soon I was enthralled by two performances in particular: the rap piece by Mori Calliope, and the smooth city pop of Gawr Gura. I don't … Continue reading Musical Love from #HoloEN Debuts and AMAZEMENT

Down the Hololive Rabbit Hole – OkaKoro and such…

And so, one day a woman watched a video. She laughed. She almost cried. She wondered why. Why am I watching this?!?!?! I've lost my mind. What the hell is wrong with me?!?!?! https://youtu.be/xDDGuUOhE0Q I actually prefer Okayu's version more than the original by Back Number. She actually sings this song beautifully.

K-Drama 3 – Because This is My First “Boring” Life, but My Friends are Interesting

Do you love hanging out with planks of wood?  Do you find talking to a wall thrilling?  Are you drawn to monotone voices that lack emotion? Are they happy?  Sad?  Excited? Angry?  No?  I mean... no, really, you honestly cannot tell by the steady timbre of sound coming from their mouth and lack of expression. … Continue reading K-Drama 3 – Because This is My First “Boring” Life, but My Friends are Interesting

Itaewon Class-less Teeny Bopper Who Has an Unhealthy Obsession with Her Boss

Sigh... ugh... oh man, I did not want to watch this show to the end.  It was so painful.  It had good moments and good characters, but the main characters were just so... ugh.  Jo Yi-Seo - worst female lead I have ever seen!

Annoyingly Long, Crash Landing On You… and Yet, I Kind’a Liked It

There's a little show called Crash Landing on You.  (This will be a long rantview because this was a VERY long show.)
