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.

Learning Japanese – V-Tuber Style

I don't know Japanese.  My son has a basic ability to understand and read Japanese; in fact, he's been getting really good.  And, he told me why.... He started telling me about V-Tubers and I wasn't sure I'd want to watch anything they produced.  It seemed silly.  Animated people?  What is this, Gorillaz?  (Yes, I … Continue reading Learning Japanese – V-Tuber Style

Let me quickly mention how it started.  I had been quite into K-dramas maybe 5 to 10 years ago.  I took a break when the channel I watched free streams of K-dramas disappeared.  There wasn't a lot of free … Continue reading The Letter “K” in Drama – The Beginning of Rantviews

Another General Hospital Fan Rant – Characters I am Loving Right Now

I have been watching General Hospital on and off since around the early 1980's... I think.  I was more of a Days of Our Lives fan back in the day, but I would catch the shows on and off.  Luke and Laura never caught my attention. But recently, since most soaps are gone, I can … Continue reading Another General Hospital Fan Rant – Characters I am Loving Right Now

Fan Base – Part 1 – a Look at General Hospital

Are you a fan? Do you oscillate between fictional characters? Do you love one day, and hate another? Do you think you know more than that other guy?   Do you like this photo?  I do. I've decided to start writing about fandom.  It's something near and dear to my heart because I, like many … Continue reading Fan Base – Part 1 – a Look at General Hospital

Stumptown is a Weird Name for a Show

Do you find an actor or actress you like and watch everything they do?  Are you a fan, who is like a stalker, because you binge on a favorite actor's every show and movie? If you are, then let me tell you about Jacoba Francisca Maria Smulders, a.k.a. Cobie Smulders. She is best known for … Continue reading Stumptown is a Weird Name for a Show
