On My Playlist ~ Orange Drive [Bang Yongguk]

When I said I was opening up to other artists, somehow I knew I would end up somewhere east of the eclectic highway. I never thought it would mean getting lost on Bang Yongguk’s Orange Drive, but indeed it was . . . and I am loving it.

On My Playlist ~ Bullet To The Heart [Jackson Wang]

Listening to Jackson Wang’s recently released single Bullet To The Heart solidifies the fact that GOT7 will not, nor probably ever will, let me settle on a bias in the group. And, I’m okay with that.

On 20 September, Jackson returned to social media after a short hiatus to begin promoting his upcoming solo album, Mirrors, with news of a single from that album being released in the coming days. On 24 September when Bullet To The Heart dropped, I was intrigued, ripe with anticipation, and looking forward to what Team Wang was going to bring. I have to say, the song successfully whet my appetite. I want more. Moreover, I feel the new song is just scratching the surface of something really big coming our way and I can only hope I will be prepared.

On My Playlist ~ Fade Away [JJ Project JB]

I do not even know where to begin. Because, in all honesty, I am not sure I have been this wrecked by an artist. I don’t know when it happened or even how it happened because I was adamant after I slowed my pace with my all-encompassing support of MBLAQ’s G.O. I was staunch in my belief that I would not fall deep ever again for an artist. I wanted to keep my interest and involvement varied, light, mild and carefree.  But the more I watch, listen and experience GOT7’s enigmatic leader, Lim Jaebeom (JB), the more I descend into his artistic lair. I am trapped my friends. And, if he continues to write, produce and record songs like today’s offering, Fade Away, there will be no escape.

On My Playlist ~ 또또또 (Call Anytime) [Kim Jinwoo]

I did not see it coming, but am pleasantly surprised and absolutely thrilled. Winner’s demure eldest brother who is nevertheless, and indeed, the thread that binds the group together, has released his first solo single, 또또또 [Call Anytime], and it is every bit as charming as the man himself.

On My Playlist ~ Mola [Winner]

Friends, I’m shook. You know when you listen to a song on an album and yes, it sounds and feels good but you never fully understand the impact of it until you watch and listen to it by way of a live performance? You know, when the visual concept coupled with aggressive choreography, stinging lyrics, and powerful vocals take the song to another level, whisk the group with it and make you pause a moment to say, ‘oh my god, what just happened?!’ This is exactly the mind-blowing experience I had when I watched Winner performed Mola from their latest EP release, We.

I need a moment.

[Announcement] Changing Lanes ~ The Fangirl Lane

So for months now I have been asking myself: What’s a fangirl to do when her bias changes lanes? Does she simply merge with that traffic and go with the flow? Or, does she take an exit to something new essentially following suit and . . . change lanes herself?

You Know You’re A Fangirl When . . .

1440855930579

You know you are a fangirl when…..you walk into your neighborhood arts and crafts store seeking a frame for the free poster you received when you purchased the latest CD of your fave group. Then, you realize that since the poster is of foreign birth, its dimensions differ from the standard sized frames available on US shelves. What’s a fangirl to do?

The answer: custom framing.

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award

A couple of years ago I sat down with a Jyotishi to have a look at my birth chart in order to see how my karmic path was affecting my present life. Yes, I realize that sounds like a bunch of new-agey hocus pocus.  But, I happen to believe in the inexplicable beauty of how the universe and our lives collide. I am weird like that.

Jyotish, or the science of light, is actually an ancient form of astrology that has been practiced for centuries throughout India. It is a Vedic science that basically describes the planetary patterns at the time of our birth and can give us valuable clues to understanding our life’s journey. When the Jyotishi asked me if I liked to write, I casually said yes. He then told me with urgent insistence to start writing and to begin right away because it would change my life forever.
