javabeans: So, last weekend girlfriday and I sat down for a rare movie-watching session, which we hardly ever do, which I guess is kind of odd given how many hours of our lives are devoted to watching our screens full of pretty Korean people. girlfriday: It’s just that movies always get back-burnered on the priority...

by | January 25, 2015 | 201 Comments
girlfriday: So how about that premiere of Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village? javabeans: It’s crazy that it hit nearly 10% ratings in the first episode.

by | January 17, 2015 | 347 Comments
girlfriday: So, what’s up? javabeans: The comment count, that’s for sure. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but since I get emailed every time a comment is posted, let’s just say my inbox is exploding over Healer comments. girlfriday: Oh, I’ve noticed. It’s hard to miss. Kinda like someone having a block party in your... More »

I generally don’t make... More »
