javabeans: These chats are fun, but sometimes I swear I’m at a loss about what new interesting thing to talk about. girlfriday: Yeah we often sit here for long periods of time just making false starts at conversation. It’d be seriously awkward if we weren’t better friends. javabeans: Granted you and I could shoot the... More »

girlfriday: So, watch anything good lately? I mean, other than the stuff you’re recapping, obviously. javabeans: Well I’m still trying to watch some of everything (glug glug, the sound of me drowning in dramas), which isn’t too hard in the sense that there’s a lot of entertaining stuff right now, but is hard in that...

Odds and Ends: Genre mash
by | May 10, 2014 | 61 Comments
javabeans: It’s the weekend again! What’s up? girlfriday: Just the usual, though maybe with more dramas than usual because every drama ever decided to premiere this week. I actually don’t know which ones to keep up with because there’s certainly not enough brainspace for all. javabeans: No kidding. How’s that Surrounded by Witch Leaves and... More »
