Odds and Ends: New year’s resolutions
by | January 3, 2015 | 107 Comments
javabeans: Happy New Year! Everybody keep your eyes real open this year, otherwise you might blink and miss it. That must be what happened to 2014. girlfriday: In all fairness, it might not be 2014’s fault. It might just be that age thing. javabeans: Do you have any New Year’s Resolutions? I generally don’t make... More »

Odds and Ends: Christmas in dramaland
by | December 20, 2014 | 49 Comments
girlfriday: Christmas is coming! I wish an elf would sneak into my house and make it festive and Christmassy, because I sure as hell won’t. Maybe it’s because it doesn’t snow here, but store-bought Christmas is as good as it gets. javabeans: The holidays snuck up on me, which is disorienting both because I’m not... More »

Odds and Ends: Giving thanks
by | November 29, 2014 | 93 Comments
javabeans: So everyone here in the States is probably still in a turkey-induced coma from Thanksgiving, which was on Thursday, which is when we honor the spirit of gratitude of our colonial forbears who survived particularly harsh conditions in their first year on the continent by watching football and internet shopping. girlfriday: Yes, some things...

Odd and Ends: Occupational hazards
by | November 14, 2014 | 78 Comments
girlfriday: You know, I never thought recapping would be back-breaking work, but as it turns out, it can literally break your back. javabeans: Or in other cases, your hip. Apparently my body decided this week that it was done enabling me to sit for hours on end watching dramas… in that it refused to let... More »

Odds and Ends: The hotness effect
by | November 1, 2014 | 264 Comments
javabeans: Let’s be shallow today, because I want to talk about hot men and I don’t know how to be meaningful about that. girlfriday: Perhaps the meaning isn’t the point! Haven’t you heard that life’s all about the journey? I can’t think of a better reason than that. It’s like they said in Cantabile Tomorrow... More »

Odds and Ends: This video is not available in your region
by | October 11, 2014 | 395 Comments
javabeans: Have you noticed that it seems to be getting strangely more difficult to find subtitled dramas these days? I don’t have any numbers or figures to support this, it’s just a feeling I’m getting from reading comments and hearing about people’s difficulties watching things. girlfriday: Yeah is it an actual problem to find the...

Odds and Ends: Awards are great/terrible, we love/hate them
by | October 4, 2014 | 68 Comments
javabeans: Omg why did all the red carpet events come at once? You have a whole, quiet spring and summer and then BAM! Fall happens and suddenly everybody wants prizes. girlfriday: I know, it’s like a fire sale for golden statues or something. I’m convinced we must’ve done something to anger the heavens this week,...

Odds and Ends: There’s no accounting for taste
by | September 20, 2014 | 136 Comments
javabeans: Taste sure is a subjective thing, isn’t it? girlfriday: Well that’s a strange (and somewhat obvious) thing to say. Are we playing non sequitur game? Is it my turn? Sometimes I wish rainbows were made of candy. javabeans: That wasn’t the game I was thinking of, but okay. I actually meant that in the... More »
