Beanie level: Rooftop room dweller

@raonah GOT7 superficial analysis. Mark and Jinyoung have this hot looking older thing going on. BamBam has been turning up the dial on the whole sexy look recently and it’s working for him.

For some reason, I can\’t share this live performance of EXO\’s \”Love Shot.\” Perfect, no. Laudable, yes.

P.S. Kai and the camera person @1:26. A true love shot indeed.

Back to Back. “Tempo” and now “Love Shot.” EXO is killin’ it for me right now. Most everything just seems to work.

This song has been such a crazy experience on a few levels:
[1] I loved the song the first time I heard it on YT Music.
[2] Today, it came up again and I decided to look up the artist. It turned out to be a J-Rock group. 🀯 I thought YT Music got it wrong–as they sometimes combine artists pages of similar names etc. They have an interesting range in their genre style.
[3] Just checked out the MV and it turned out to be pretty deep/impactful.

    One Ok Rock are big. πŸ€— I’m not very familiar with the Japanese music scene but One Ok Rock are one of Japan’s biggest rock bands and they have a large international fanbase. Ive been envious of their American and European fans for years. T_T Taka’s voice is <3, Toru & Ryota's guitar is <3, Tomoyo's drums are <3.

      Apparently they might even be bigger than Radwimps–they have more subscribers on YT Music! Most of my knowledge of J-Rock comes from anime and I don’t think they’ve done an OST/OP/ED. How did you hear about them?

        Yup, I think theyre bigger πŸ™‚ Or Radwimps are just about at the same level.
        They did the OST for Ruroni Kenshin live action starring Sato Takeru. ^^ The Beginning. Link to my fave live performance of the song:

        Note: Taka (vocalist) trained for years as an idol, which explains the running but able to sing.

          Thx for the share. Pretty awesome performance. The guy is fit and talented, that’s for sure. Having said that, I wouldn’t doubt that his idol training helped him, but a good few frontmen can do that–running but able to sing. 🙃 Just don’t ask me to name any. 😂

            Me too. Seriously. It’s kinda sad. I’m about to make a post praising EXO for a pretty dang good live performance of “Love Shot” and too be fair, for that intensity of dancing, it was good vocal quality. But that shouldn’t be something so strange for it to stand out so much for me to have to praise.

      He is! What I like about them is that there music is pretty diverse in it’s sound. You really can tell how influential their idols/influences were on them.

I meant to post this a while back. I\’m happy the DB finally fixed the notification system. Now mentions are listed on the All Notifications page, the counter doesn\’t reset after you click it once, and I believe the counter doesn’t max out at 10. All of these changes make the DB experience more enjoyable. Thanks for the update/fix!

At first I was like, here we go with yet another retro inspired MV/song. But as the song progressed, I began to warm up more and more to everything about it. LOVE IT!

So, I\’m confused. I recently started Prison Playbook because of all the positive attention it garnered by beanies. Because it started in late 2017 and finished in early 2018, I checked to see if it was counted as a drama for last year’s Year In Review and unless I missed it, I didn’t see it there. Now that this year’s Year In Review is up, I don’t see it there either. Am I really missing something here. While Prison Playbook is all kinds of awesome, for the purposes of participating in the Year in Review, I feel like I should have started Life on Mars instead.

    Mary says that it was done last year but tbh i don’t remember it being included last year either.

      It was in the list of shows that they took under consideration but not given any beans by any in the DB Team because they weren’t watching it… I gave it 2 of my beans even though it had just begun airing when the Bean Count 2017 came out.

      So yeah for this year’s bean count purposes, LoM would have been better but honestly both dramas are equally good. Except maybe the ep length issue in PP.

      Oh btw @hades did you spot WINNER’s Kang Seungyoon in PP?

        Oh, that’s silly. Oh well.

        I’m only on ep. 3. Not sure if I missed him yet or not. Thanks for the heads up if he hasn’t showed up yet. The only not so amazing thing about PP is that the eps are super long. I’m going to try to watch an ep a day on weekdays and 2 a day on the weekends.

          I think he first shows up in ep3 so if you haven’t finished the episode, you might see him… He is the youngest prisoner- the bread thief (and hence called Jean Valjean)

      I hate reading. I love that Jinyoung isn’t exactly a voracious reader. Non-idol Jinyoung seems so human and I love it. I would want to hang out with him.

      Thanks for the share my dear. 💚

          Sooo…a couple of years ago I would have said that there’s nothing you can’t get from a book that you can’t get from a movie. That outlook is flawed in so many ways, I know. The irony–if we can call it that–here though is that I watch a ton of Asian dramas, and I have to read subtitles.

          While I would not seek out a book to read, what I love about reading is that the end result is a combination of the authors imagination/vision and the reader’s. With movies etc, it’s mainly the director’s/producer’s/showrunner’s. So after reading a book, even though we’ve read the same description of a character, chances are the actual image we come up with for the same character might be quite different.

          But, I grew up in an age of video games and cable, so many an RPG was my equivalent of a book. You know what. You would be surprised how much knowledge you can gain from both.

          And, there is my all over the place answer. πŸ™‚

1. Whenever I hear a K-Pop group sing in Japanese, it’s a total mindf*ck. Are they singing in Korean, or Japanese? It’s the accent, right?

2. Every time I watch a BTOB MV, I’m like, I know that guy (Sungjae) from some drama. Finally figured out that he’s the guy from Goblin. Hope to see him in another drama soon.

Let Jinyoung and the GOT7 boys take you on a Christmas miracle.

Yugyeom bringing the cute. @raonah, you know it\’s a miracle.

Jackson being Jackson.

Mark continuing the attempted bias wrecking.

Youngjae bringing the passion.

BamBam being BamBam

Last but certainly not least, JB.

[1] Jinyoung sure is petty.

[3] Jackson, poor Jackson.

      Me too. It also makes me feel like NCT is indeed as awesome and crazy cool as I think they are. By that I mean, their sound is crazy unique and I love it, and musically, it makes “sense” apparently. lol. Still though, live, they suck, but oh well.

This is one of my favourite animes of all time. I can see so many ways this can turn out to be one of my least favourite live action adaptations of all time. Some things should just stay as an anime.

    Yeah, this is making me all kinds of nervous. I remember Keanu Reeves was attached to the project at some point (when it was going to be a movie instead of a series), but when he dropped out, I thought they’d let the idea rot in a drawer or something….
    Oh, Netflix. Please stop.

      I’m glad Keanu Reeves gave up… now if only Netflix would consider doing the same…

    Cowboy Beebop is truly a classic and while I understand that every 2nd generation (seemingly) needs a reboot (I see you, Lion King CGI 2019 remake), a live-action adaptation of such an epic anime is bound to not do it justice… So why?!?
    *sigh*

      IKR. I can’t wait to see how they nail Ed.

      I would say this though, for all the reasons they didn’t need to do a remake, the CGI in Lion King looks epic.

        my main concern for Lion King 2019 is: how are they gonna sing??? πŸ™
