I finally finished Buzzer Beat. Yay for me! (I had skimmed the episodes before, so I knew what happened... either way, I adored that show! It gave me lots of good vibes. Plus, gratuitous shirtlessness!)

I made a list of all the dramas I've started but haven't finished, and have decided that I shall finish them. I have 36 series I've started and not finished. Some won't be finished for awhile (I have a great aversion to viikii and don't watch there much at all, so I'll have to wait for sub groups), some probably won't be finished at all (looking at you, Meteor Garden 2). But either way, it's a good goal for me to have. I like to finish things.

Next up: My Queen (2 episodes on viikii, but I love it enough that I'll willing to suffer), followed by Kurosagi and Stand Up!! (3 episodes left of each).

I decided to follow the rest of my peeps, and do my top 12 drama boyfriend list.

In response to [livejournal.com profile] cranberrysheep's Drama Boyfriend Playoffs, I listed my top 12 (well, technically it was 13, but who's counting) ideal drama boyfriends. And then [livejournal.com profile] ambergold and [livejournal.com profile] princess_dexter made more detailed posts, and well, I decided to as well!

And because I wanted pictures (and since a lot of my choices are from dramas I watched ages ago, when I didn't know how to screencap) I didn't have any ready to use caps, so I spent awhile going through my big ol' folder of drama discs. But this also meant I spent awhile rewatching my favorite parts of various dramas. But I'll get to that later.

Amusingly about half are from twdramas. Apparently I still love me some Taiwanese men after all ;P. Oddly, a lot of my choices are from unpopular dramas as well. And I totally have actor repeat offenders (three of them, actually!)

Anyway, list! (Note, the frst 5 aren't really in any concrete order. I love them all too much to choose between them)

Yeah, it's 2am. I'm dead tired. I should be sleeping. Hell, I should have been sleeping hours ago.

But... BUT...

Instead I am watching Buzzer Beat episode 8 raw. Because I cannot help myself. I was checking for the episode shortly after it aired (being in this time zone makes it easier for me to keep track of when shows air. Seoul and Tokyo are both one hour ahead. China, Hong Kong, and Singapore are all in the same timezone as me. Nice and simple.

ANYWAY, Buzzer Beat. OMG I love that show. I watch it with a rabidity not seen since Atadan. I half love, half hate watching shows as the air. It's annoying since I want to know what happens ASAP, but on the other hand that keeps me interested. (ASIDE: WTF NATSUKI?! Okay, yeah, totally hate her. She's getting into the kdrama secondary girl-bitch category, which is not a good place to be...)

Still watching and obsessing over What Happened in Bali as well. I'm on episode 11, but then I got impatient (I had to leave and actually do stuff, which meant I couldn't watch more, but I HAD to know what happened!) and skimmed through the episodes up until 16. OMG SO MUCH LOVE. SO MUCH. Sometimes it feels like my heart is being ripped from my chest though. I guess that's good. I know I'm going to cry at the end.

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG Buzzer Beat episode 7!!

REAL KISSING! *flails and then dies*

It's like, midnight, and I've been dead tired since 9, but I've been trying to download episode 7 all day (computer issues), and I'm glad I stayed up (despite the exhausted dizziness...)

Eh, so much to say! I'm splitting it up!

What we've been doing in Taiwan for the last few days + pictures )

I HAVE been watching things while here. I watched the most recent Buzzer Beat (ep 6), and I finally started Meteor Shower (OMG I LOVE IT, but it's so weird). I ALSO randomly started What Happened in Bali.

I'm really really glad I missed the typhoon in Taiwan. It mostly affected the south, but it did hit Taipei as well. Either way it's horrible. I mean, 80 inches of rain, houses being washed away by a river, an estimated 600 people buried in mudslides... I mean, I look at the pictures, and I just can't believe it.

Otherwise I'm still annoyingly sick. I say annoying since I don't actually feel that bad (other than a dry throat, slight congestion, and occasional earaches), but I have trouble sleeping and concentrating.

I spent awhile out today buying stuff for Taiwan (more clothes... I swear, by the time I finish preparing I'll have a whole new wardrobe!), BECAUSE I LEAVE IN SIX DAYS. I also got my international driver's permit. I need a few more things, but I'm pretty set otherwise!

ALSO! Can I say just how much I love Buzzer Beat?

And just not because of the epic, unending, TOTALLY gratuitous fanservice (though I admit, it helps ;P )
Because THIS happened in episode 5 (spoilers) )

I'm watching Buzzer Beat 4, and while I've always loved Naoki (he's a bit vanilla, but totally sweet), he just endeared himself to me totally.

Naoki is going to visit Natsuki, and hears her screaming. He rushes in to find her freaking out over a bug that got inside. SO HE GENTLY REMOVES THE BEETLE FROM THE DRAPES, AND BRINGS IT OUTSIDE TO LET IT GO.

I don't kill insects. Anyone who would rather save a bug than kill it is a friend of mine ;P

(I attempt a Buddhist standpoint, that all life, regardless of size, is of value. I don't kill insects, I don't unnecessarily uproot plants, I try to respect all life. My religion professor once told me a story of one of her students who spent time in a Buddhist monastery, and had to refrain from swatting mosquitoes. I thought that amazing (thought not very smart, in general, what with all the diseases they carry in the subtropics), and sought to mimic those views in my own life. I'm not Buddhist, but I sometimes wish I were.)

I still don't understand people who are afraid of insects. I probably never will. But who am I to judge, I'm terrified of whales.

Ohhh goodness. Somehow, through no real fault of my own, I ended up reading some RP fic for GD and TOP. I read one really good one, and a couple of okay ones. But the best was when there was an arranged marriage between TOP and Lee Hyori! I LAUGHED SO HARD.

But anyway, I meant to post this awhile ago, but whatever. I'm still loving Buzzer Beat. It's not anything groundbreaking, but I don't care. It has a lot of the same feeling that Hachimitsu to Clover had, which naturally makes me love it. (Random OT - This fall I'm going to watch H&C again. For some reason that show reminds me of autumn)

Anyway, caps and such!

The guys were all like "yay navels!", and Mai was like "YAY ABS", it was awesome.

I just spent the last two or so hours ripping all 8 millions of my Big Bang CDs to my new computer. I have TWELVE of them. I'm only missing five (the second Korean single, both indie Japanese minis, and two of the live albums). Yes, I keep track.

Anyway, I ripped my entire Asian CD collection (which is over 50% YG albums, amusingly enough).

I finally received my YesAsia package that I order AGES ago. Stupid incest movie held things up (yes, I bought Boku wa Imoto ni Koi o Suru... I'm weird like that).

So you know how I'm always squee-ing about how Korean album packaging is awesome? Yeah, well it turns out it's basically just YG Fam packaging, because the SNSD album I got isn't nearly as nice (though the photo booklet IS amazing). On the other hand, both the 2NE! album and YB's solo album were amazingly done. Especially Young Bae's. I have no real idea how I'm going to fit it on my shelf (it's round), but otherwise, amazing.

I took pictures, and have them uploaded and stuff, but I'm wicked tired right now, so I won't get around to posting them tonight.

IN OTHER NEWS, I "watched" Buzzer Beat 3, and HOLY FANSERVICE BATMAN. Like, seriously, About half the time Pi was shirtless. Occasionally he was sweaty. Sometimes he was hanging around with other shirtless nicely muscled guys. Either way, he was shirtless. SHIRTLESS. The jdrama gods have smiled down on me.

So I'm off. I'm reading a D/Hr fanfic to see if I'd like to rec it, but I'll probably fall asleep before then. Plus I have to put away all my albums

I guess the verdict is yay brain-splitting-headache-of-DOOOOOM (as opposed to staying at work, but without headache of doom), because I managed to watch three episodes of dramas today! Which is super good, considering I've had a hard time staying awake to finish one episode recently.

I got through episodes 11 and 12 of Triple, and episode 2 of Buzzer Beat.

I am loving Buzzer Beat more every second (and not just for the INTENSE FANSERVICE WHERE HOT GUYS ARE HALF NAKED IN EVERY SINGLE EPISODE). It's interesting, the characters are good, and the love triangle between Naoki, Riko, and coach Tomoya is going to destroy me because they're all such good people. But amusingly I was watching Crows Zero 2 the other day, and was like "hey, is that the bad-boy basketball player who slept with Pi's girlfriend in Buzzer Beat?!"... IT IS! So now whenever I see him I picture him getting beaten down by Shun-kun.

But anyway, SUCH a good show. It's perfect for me, reminds me a lot of Hachimitsu to Clover (except like, totally different plots, but the same sort of slice of life feeling). I'm so used to twice weekly releases of Triple, that only getting one episode a week is sad for me. Stupid kdramas, making me expect things!

They're totally adorable, and just made for each other. *is sad for awesome coach Tomoya*

I got to see my hospital cat today! )

WHY, OH DEAR GOD WHY isn't Triple subbed yet?! WHHHYYYY?!

And, for that matter, why isn't Buzzer Beat subbed yet?! (Granted it just aired yesterday, but damn it, I'm impatient). I just skimmed the raw of episode 2, and SO CUTE. I love it so much, and there's lots of shirtless Yamapi. NOT ONLY THAT, there is WET SHIRTLESS YAMAPI. That's a bonus right there. Love you, Japan!

In less gleeful news, workplace is not allowing me to do a leave of absence, so I have to quit. And lose my health insurance (kinda... it's a long story). I'm not pleased.

I don't think Buzzer Beat is going to be like Triple for me (ie. massively intensely addicting), BUT wow, I loved it! It's a fun drama, and I'm really looking forward to the next episode.

Plus all of the characters are around my age (most of them are 24, I'm 25), so I can relate more.
IN OTHER NEWS, Did I not know what Park Bom went to college in Boston?! She went to Berklee too! I knew someone from high school that went there. She studied for awhile at Lesley University, which is another school in Cambridge, that's actually in the middle of "Japantown".

Obviously Park Bom is my favorite member of 2NE1, but I think she's one of my favorite singers overall. I love her voice, and she's so awesome as a person.
Eh, I have a lot to say today...

I downloaded Microsoft office, but it's in french, and I'm all like "whhhaaaa?!", because while I did take french lessons back in the day (um, 1994 if I remember correctly), all I remember how to do is say stuff like "hello", "how are you", "TQ2 can't play the guitar", and I can count up to 39.

Does anyone know if there's any way to change the default language? Or am I stuck. N/M I downloaded another version that's in english. YAY for language compatibility!

So I'm watched the first episode of Buzzer Beat, and about halfway through I encountered the best scene. One where Yamapi fondles his manboobs manly pecs. MADE OF WIN.

Totally not related, but it's Yamapi being pretty, so whatever
Gratuitous shirtlessness care of Japan )

So yeah, summary of my day so far; hot guys fighting, and hot shirtless guys playing basketball. Not a bad way to spend my time.

I'm glad Kitagawa Keiko is the love interest in this though. I think she's adorable, AND her character's a music student which makes me like her all the more.

ALSO while I was watching I caught a glimpse of someone, and was like "IS THAT AINO MINAKO?!"... IT IS!!! Komatsu Ayaka is in it too, which is awesome since it's like a partial PGSM reunion (Ayaka = Mina, Keiko = Rei)! That makes me happy for some reason.

I need a Yamapi icon.

Crap, I hate it when this happens. I know I just posted, but I DID NOT KNOW the new season of jdramas was starting so soon!

Yamapi's new drama starts airing today/tomorrow, and Nagase's airs on the 18th! Otomen starts a little later (01Aug09).

I'm not sure how I'm going to handle watching five live aiiring dramas (Buzzer Beat, Karei naru Spy, Otomen, Triple, AND Easy Fortune Happy Life), plus I will inevitably fall into the crack that is Koishite Akuma. Plus Meteor Shower starts airing this August, and possibly Down with Love and Calling Big Star will be airing soon... maybe. Not to mention the new MingEn drama which might air sometime, and I will not miss FOR THE WORLD.

I kinda hate Japan for how many goddamn dramas they put out in a year. I CANNOT keep up.
