by | May 17, 2014 | 77 Comments
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

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 »

Odds and Ends: Inheriting the drama gene
by | May 3, 2014 | 146 Comments
javabeans: So my parents are newly Roku’d and Hulu’d, which means they have finally discovered the joys of watching dramas at will, after decades of only watching whatever was on the TV every night (which, in LA, is pretty plentiful as the shows stick to the Korean broadcast schedule for dramas, only about a month...

Odds and Ends: Workaholia

javabeans: What a long week. Then again, when your job is to report news and there IS no news (other than the one big thing in the news), the days start feeling really long. Uh, not to make a tragic current event all about me, of course. But the news has been so inundated with... More »

Odds and Ends: Sick days in dramaland
by | April 18, 2014 | 58 Comments
girlfriday: So how was your week? javabeans: Pretty much the same as any other week, except a little more painful since I’m sick. What’s interesting, though, is that dramas don’t quite have the same punch when you’re not feeling well, because then you’re watching it through this haze. Oh, so there’s a fictional serial killer...

Odds and Ends: Talking dramas in Boston
by | April 12, 2014 | 53 Comments
girlfriday: So we went to Harvard last weekend. We should probably tell people about that. javabeans: Yes, good idea. As we announced, we were invited by the Harvard-Radcliffe Asian American Association to talk at an event in their speaker series, and they gave us the loose parameters of talking about beauty, gender, and cultural stereotypes...

girlfriday: So, I’m not sure how this happened, but another week went by. javabeans: Apparently that’s the thing that time does. Keeps going. girlfriday: Well somebody needs to put a stop to that. Didja do anything fun? javabeans: …that’s a sad question. By which I mean it’s a question that provokes sadness. I guess we’ll... More »

Um, we have some good news and some bad news. I’ll start with the bad news because we actually only have bad news. HeadsNo2 was unfortunately in an accident yesterday, and first of all she’s okay, but second of all she’s still banged up and in lots of pain so we’re sending her tons of... More »
