Beanie level: Wrongly accused fugitive

Instead of a drama watching ep1 of season 2 of The Great British Baking Show.

I want a piece of cake so bad right now.

    I have to say that’s a fun little show.

    Who knew pies, tarts and crème pat could be so interesting?!

    I love this mini series to death. I must have watched it a thousand times, and just recently in fact. It’s so sad that the actor who played Gilbert died so young.

Wrongly accused fugitive.

But is it a step up from underpants?

I mean…Gong Yoo.

    Congrats! Yeah, I also would never leave if Gong yoo allowed me to live in his underpants.
    I’m still struggling watching that face. Over sensitive me still can’t get over the finale of that-mess-shall-not-be-named a month ago.
    So I’m typing this comment with my thumb cover the picture.

Just fell down a rabbit hole of Stephan Colbert vs Rain. I cant remember if I watched any of it back then or not. Wouldn\’t of known Rain. Now have the refrain \”Hes singing in korean\” on repeat.

Shine is the other song. It still puts me in a good mood. One hard morning I put it and Harlem Shuffle on as I showered and got ready and they were like a shot of energy. Completely uplifted my mood.

      Oh how fun. They are the group that got me into kpop. I’m glad to hear they were so good live.

I have two songs I have to give some love to this month. Very popular songs that i should be tired of, but I’m not. One is Palette by IU. I’m going to be 40 this year and yet this song really resonates with me. I’m going through a bit of growth and acceptance. I’ve always have tended to like to hide and not draw attention to myself. So being comfortable enough to wear a bright yellow sweater can be as big as being comfortable enough to speak up at work about what would make my day better.

Put this soundtrack on this morning. Made me remember how often I’d watch it as a child. Especially when it come on tv during Thanksgiving (?)
My mom and older brother never complained. Even when I’d want to switch channels just to catch the musical numbers, lol. I just remembered that.
Love, February

So, what does everyone think?

    Tbh I was really looking forward to this. Overall I really like the concept of the song and the MV and their mature vibe, but musically the song is a miss for me. Taemin’s voice is so nice, but why to that music? SM! *cries* In comparison, Key’s solo was much more my style of music. ^^;

    Disclaimer: I’m not a Shawol, and enjoy Shinee’s music casually, so my opinion might not be as positive as that of fans.

          OOH no denying that. Taemin is…fluid? I think sensuous was really the right concept to go with, for him.

        I like it. It is on a repeat right now. We will see if it turns to love. I find it catchy. Love when he drops his voice to a lower register. I’m not sure of technical terms , but I like when he uses his voice in different ways.

        He looks and moves well. The MV did remind me a bit of Retro Future.

        The timing of the string of MJ references is hard. My mind goes right to what I read about Leaving Neverland.
        However, I love Taemin’s dancing and will be curious to see the stages and practice video.

    I really like it! The melody is super interesting and flowy in comparison to the thumping bassline. It’s not as catchy as his other releases and a bit mellow, so it may not appeal to everyone. My only qualm about the MV is the super strong wind/fan that keeps blowing his hair around lol

    Now for the WANT mini album vs MOVE mini album: MOVE is the winner. I’m not a big fan of any of the B-sides on WANT.

      The snakes freak me out. I’m just delving into the other songs. I still need to fully explore Move too. The title track is just so good.

    From a casual fan-It’s more mellow than I expected, but I like it. I like the aesthetics of the music video, though I kinda hate that he’s just in a room. I like the way he utilizes his voice.

    I liked the aesthetics more than the song itself.
    The song is just meh for me, and I like the other songs on the album better.
    But I could watch this MV all day!

    I am digging the MV and the intro part of the song. However, I wish there was more to the song. I feel like it could have gone weird and dark places. Still really good though, just feel like it could have been “slightly” better. That MV though….I could watch it for days.

    I liked it!! I saved it and I liked it more than Move…
    The base combined with the siren type sound as part of the music was cool, and I personally thought they balanced it out with moments of silence and base drops. It did kinda just… end though.
    (@greenfields– I like both Key’s solo and this haha!)
    I also liked the snakes but then I’m creepy and weird and I loved the effect when they disintegrated. The style of the MV with the aesthetic symbolism was right up my alley.
    Who said it should’ve been darker? @umbrellaman? I want to agree but somehow I doubt SM would go darker? Although I guess Monster is pretty dark lol.

      There are certain shots in the video that remind me of Jong-hyun’s Crazy. I’ve been wondering if they were made by the same director. πŸ€”

@fatcat007 post made me think of this poem:
I will be the gladdest thing
Under the sun!
I will touch a hundred flowers
And not pick one.

I will look at cliffs and clouds
With quiet eyes,
Watch the wind bow down the grass,
And the grass rise.

And when lights begin to show
Up from the town,
I will mark which must be mine,
And then start down!

Romance is a Bonus Book.

Intrigued by Director Go. I loved that she reminded her friends that she makes her own money, lol. Also, maybe not strong in people skills but in her job.
Hae-rin please stop showing up at your boss\’s house when he asks you not to. And dont leave bras and love notes behind.

In the middle of Romance is a Bonus Book ep 6.
Just all of a sudden I want the actor that plays the CEO to be the lead in a rom com. And the lead female to be either the actress who was the head of KIS in Terrius or the CEO mother from My ID is GB.

    Isn’t CEO Kim AWESOME !!!!

    I am so, so, so, so glad that his is a competent, nice individual. Yeah, you know that he had the skills to have built that publishing company and it wasn’t ‘genius’ Eun-ho.

    And he is easy on the eyes. Not that that is the ONLY thing :).

      He is very handsome and has a great voice.
      Yes, he is a bit quirky but obviously competent. He seems to take a hand in choosing his employees so recognizes talent and how to best use it. Plus, I like that he brings up the bottom line. Someone needs to be the money person for a company to succeed.
      I am glad that Eun-ho didnt turn out to be the top guy. I think it makes it more interesting.

    He is the Grim Reaper 444 in Black! Although he just had a very short appearance.

Just finished ep 3 of Romance is a Bonus Book.
It would be so nice if Hae-rin became a mentor for Dan-yi at work.
Also love the fabrics, patterns, and colors of the clothes.

Walking to work with freezing hands because I forgot my gloves….again.
Trisha singing about a man named Joe and Tracy asking for One Reason in my ears.
Perfect tiny white snowflakes falling.
Thank you February for this morning.

So, I almost bought a 10 dollar jar of kaya lemon jam off Amazon. Still tempted. Maybe one day make a haul of all the little treats I want to try.

Ok, I have to try one of these love lists. Partly because I love lists. In no order and off the top of my head so apologies to the forgotten.

Libraries
First cup of coffee
Gravel roads
Walking on a brisk day and cold cheeks
Scarves
My old boots
New socks
Dog ears
When my dog would smell of sap and earth
Lemon verbena soap
Summer fruit
Lemon curd
Diner breakfast
The opening guitar on Here Comes The Sun
Standing in the snow at dusk
Sound of hoof beats
The sound of neighborhood children playing on a summer\’s day
Laughing in a group
The wind
Redwoods
Rain
A good hair day
Theater lights going down
Finding a new song
Getting lost in a book
Milk and cookies
Pretty shops
Sweet peas

Just finished ep 1 of Coffee Friends. Everything looks so good. I really like the glasses used for the cold beverages.
I\’ve never seen a toaster like that with water added.
