I feel completely overwhelmed by the quality of arts that is available to me. On the Asian end, Answer Me, 1997 and Gaksital are totally rocking’ my socks off. The former drama is reminiscing an era slightly half a decade ahead of mine, but I can still relate to its stories and characters. Gosh, episode 12 came out and heck, my heart just feeeeeels.
It is so silly and nostalgic to think of my teenage years, when I used to go insane over certain celebrities, when everything seems like the end of the world, when I talked like a James Dean wannabe and pinned after older guys when I was already attached myself. And all those one sided, hopeless crushes, they killed me.
Gaksital is killing it for me in a different way. The taut plotting and rich complexities between and within the two male leads are making it the best period kdrama I have ever seen.
TIFF will be in full swing in a week’s time, so even more goodies to come. All these films I am dying to see-it’s just a matter of time and money. I’m frugal, and the money saved from buying used textbooks goes away in a flash on things like this.
If only I could live a life of leisure and be guiltless of responsibilities. But hell, what would be the point then?

she forgot to rewind the tape.
and again I weep with lady who. Lost the meatball and gained no means.
Where is father? And his camera?
Won’t there be a memory of this miserable shit?
there’s clapping during rehearsal
even some tears
some real people
Please welcome the real downer of the evening
wait for the firetruck
that’s the highlight.
of) a good night, I hope

I blame my tendency to be overly invested (read: obsessed) on my curiosity. Once I beceome attached to something, I absolutely have to know everything there is to know about it. I work efficiently too, under the overarching umbrella of “Acclaimed BBC Dramas” I have Sherlock, Jane Eyre, and Downton Abbey.
The first is far more enthralling than the others (part of the magic is because of how naturally Holmes is updated). I remember halfway through watching A Study In Pink and exclaiming “this is bloody brilliant!” Honestly, this is before I became a Cumberbatch devotee!
I read frantically, training my eyes on all of the original ACD canon and before the week is out, I can talk pretty knowledgably about Holmes.
