Episode 274: Fifteen Times The Fun

Posted by Stephanie on June 11, 2021


Stephanie was VERY surprised at the number of dramas she’s either currently watching or finished since our last podcast! So many things have happened this month: Lee Ji Hoon made her uncomfortable…and not in a good way, texting coworkers at 11:30 at night to squee about a show, finally finding NCT’s Doyoungie in his acting debut, and the foretold news of A.C.E’s upcoming release!

Chatting Love Is Science?, Move to Heaven, My Unicorn Girl, Lovely Writer, We Best Love: Fighting Mr. Second, and literally so many more.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Behind the Curtain

Posted by SaraG on June 10, 2021



Waaaayyyyy back in 2016 I wrote about a super young up-and-comer named Glabingo that I was very interested in following through his career. His first few singles were both clever and interesting. He seemed to have a clear understanding of his musical voice for someone not yet even out of high school and he had the backing of both a label and parents already in the industry to support him through the process. But it’s really hard to truly follow someone’s career when they aren’t putting much music out. As Glabingo popped into my head this week and I went back through and listened to the few songs available, I was reminded just how excited I was to watch his potential unfold and I also really started to think about the other musicians I’ve been lured by and then lost simply because I couldn’t find out any information.

Discovering Kingdom: Favorite Performances

Posted by Stephanie on June 8, 2021


As I mentioned in last week’s Khottie, I spent part of my weekend holed up in the infamous basement of SaraG sipping Coke Zero’s while watching all the performances of this season of Kingdom. Feel free to be jelly. As I’ve said, though I like a lot of the groups taking part in this challenge series, it was precisely for that reason why I couldn’t watch a show where actual groups compete against each other and there are real winners and losers. I love some of these guys so much, I don’t want to see their little faces all sad… you know how they get. So I skipped it. SaraG and Leila watched, Alix convinced me to watch one of the collab challenges, (I can’t resist some rapper Bobby), even my friend Jami started watching the performances. So the idea of watching what seemed to be some amazing performances had been humming in my brain for a while, despite all my misgivings.

So when SaraG threw out an impromptu invite to watch the performances, I said let me throw on some pants and I’ll be over. (Though, between you and me, when she invited me, I thought she was talking about the performances for that week, turns out the show had ended!) After some mushy face with the puppies, we headed down and SaraG queued up all the full performances for every week. (These would be the performances without the responses from the other teams.)

Let me just say, everyone wasn’t wrong, so many of these performances were amazing!

Monday – Not So Secretly EMO

Posted by SaraG on June 7, 2021


The last couple of weeks have been super 90’s music fun. My oldest daughter discovered her love for angry female singers, I fell down a Tegan and Sara nostalgic hole, some of my besties had a lovely conversation about music we used to obsess over (surprising no one, it was all very similar), and approximately 37 people I know all got tickets to see Alanis Morrissette, Garbage, and Liz Phair in September. And most relevant to this blog, TogetherXTomorrow (TXT) put out a new album including the most 1999 skinny white boy rock song ever and I’m completely in love with it.

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Sleepy Head

Posted by SaraG on June 3, 2021


I realize that I schedule these posts to pop onto the blog very early in the morning, but I typically write them in the middle of the day…I try to get them done on a Friday afternoon so I can tick it off my list for the weekend early and focus on fun things – like laundry and grocery shopping. Today, however, as I’m typing away, it’s Sunday night and I have been up since four this morning. I’m already in my jammies, my teeth are brushed, and I’m sleepy. But just as I was about to crawl into bed, I realized that I had been negligent in my duties and needed to get something hammered out and set up behind the scenes so I could forget about it for the rest of the week.

BL and Bubbles Calendar: June

Posted by Stephanie on June 2, 2021


Wow, I think this is the first time I’ve actually been so close to the first of the month getting the updated BL schedule out! I think it might be because I have BL on the brain. I know, you’re going to say, “Don’t you always have BL on the brain?” And I can’t say that you’re wrong. But, this week I can say the tide is especially high considering we just passed the holiday weekend and I spent a good portion of it catching up on some BL watching with my partner in BL and Bubble Tea crime, Alix. We watched so much and some of it was really good!

Musical Monday – That’s How I Like My Dessert

Posted by SaraG on May 31, 2021


I quite enjoy really large groups for a myriad of reasons – the least of which isn’t that if a member decides or has the decision made for them to move on, the group isn’t destroyed. However, when a group has more than about five members, it can get a bit tactically complicated to give folks enough time in the limelight. Producers are either forced to give everyone the requisite handful of lines in a four-minute song or the group runs a risk of a ‘main vocal and his/backup dancers’ situation. And that’s never a good look when we’re dying to hear so and so do his thing occasionally.

Khottie of the Week: VAV’s Lou

Posted by Stephanie on May 30, 2021

Khottie of the Week

Back in the Khottie Saddle Again! Not sure why I needed to capitalize that, but I’m leaving it. This round had me searching our old file “TBD Khottie” a treasure trove of hotties previously missed. It includes the likes of what seems like all of ONF, some of The Rose, a smattering of GolCha, bunches of IMFACTs, and, one, I repeat, only one member of VAV. My eyes stopped there. Is it possible? Is there only one VAV member left? Of course, there could be a few more hiding under the age restriction, but the idea of completing my set? Crossing something off the list? Oooh, I can’t resist! So here we go, this week’s Khottie…. VAV’s Lou! Read more
