Because I'm mentally challenged and deleted my first "friends only" post by accident.

[Headbanging to |Over My Head - Sum 41]

Rather quickly, Henry and I went through the 2017 version of Legend of the Condor Heroes (hereinafter LOCH for short). After hearing me talk about this trilogy for so long, Henry finally gave in and decided to watch the trilogy with me! Muhuahahaha! We ended up watching the 2017 over the 2008 version because I couldn't find an HD version of the 2008, which I prefer over this one. But more on that later. I'm going to be lazy and not do my own screencaps this time around.

LOCH 2017Collapse )

In the meantime, I had started watching Ashi Girl while waiting for episodes of I Will Never Let You Go to build up. Then with Henry, we started watching Romance of the Condor Heroes. So far, all the characters in it are...bad. At least it's good for a laugh?

This was the best drama I watched in 2018. Technically, I finished the last four episodes in 2019, but whatever. It's due to laggy streaming that made me finish the drama slower than I would like. So strap in while I talk at length about My Queen.

My QueenCollapse )

I'm back on the internet after my long Christmas-New Year break!

Just in time for the Christmas/New Year season, I finished Back to 1989, which takes place during the Christmas/New Year period.

I Love the 80'sCollapse )

I'm currently watching My Queen by myself and watching Back to 1089 with my mom. We're close to finishing the latter and I'm a third of the way through the former. So it's time to think about what to watch next!

Drama current and futureCollapse )

[Headbanging to |連名帶姓 - a Mei]

After not having enough Spheres broken in Fights Break Sphere, we watched several movies to try and get our fill of sword fighting violence:

Blade of the Immortal/13 AssassinsCollapse )

Unrelated to sword fighting violence, we also watched less violent movies.

Now You See Me 2/Oceans 8/It (2017)Collapse )

In terms of reading:

BooksCollapse )

[Headbanging to |Truly, Madly, Deeply - Savage Garden]

After seven episodes, I decided to drop Legend of Fu Yao. Surprisingly, it's not because of the CGI gerbil.

More Martial Arts HogwartsCollapse )

Now I have to figure out what to watch next. I'm leaning towards My Queen to watch something with Ethan Ruan in it that's Taiwanese. But there's also:

* Ashi Girl - time traveling comedy. Pros are obviously that it's a Japanese drama and short.
* Ever Night - about fighting and revenge. Internet claims that the fight scenes are really good. I crave a good fight after watching so many fails. But it would also be good to have a break from xianxia dramas. It's also not done airing yet.
* Heavenly Sweetness Ash-Like Frost - fans of 3310, including my sister-in-law, all recommend it. But it would be good to have a break from xianxia dramas.
* Love Sandstorm - run-of-the-mill Taiwanese comedy. It's short so I'm leaning towards it.
* Warrior Baek Dong Soo - Internet also claims the fighting is good in it. But so far, I've yet to find a Korean drama I like and am hesitant to start one.

I should watch something short.

Over the weekend, we finished breaking spheres.

Is a rose by any other name...?Collapse )

And after hearing me complain about the lack of sphere breakage in this drama, Jabba went ahead and broke a Christmas ornament for me.

[Headbanging to |怎麼辦 - S.H.E.]

...mostly playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey, of course!

So far, I'm liking it a lot more than Origins in terms of having the more engaging main story. They also structured the side quests much better so that they're actually not bad to complete plus I don't feel as bad turning down/not completing side quests. Those two main changes are enough for me to overlook the combat (still not great), sailing (still terrible), and super detailed RPG elements (there's just too much! - not a huge RPG person).

I made little progress in my subbing. It's good that I only have four more episodes to go because fatigue is setting in. At this point, I'm pretty sure I'll finish. But I'm definitely not at the pace I was when I started. Writing was also okay, although my reading has come to a halt thanks to sudoku. No more bedtime sudoku!

In drama news, we're reaching the end of Fights Break Sphere but you wouldn't know it by the pacing and the oddly misplaced mainland Chinese humor. I'm still in the beginning of Legend of Fu Yao but I'm getting mighty annoyed with the Goblet of Fire-like school competition. Let's get back to Ethan Ruan, his smirk face, and his CGI gerbil (I can't believe I look forward to that!). I don't care about wishy-washy senior brother and his hag junior sister story line at all.

I think I prefer Greek feta cheese to Bulgarian feta cheese. Greek is just creamier with a stronger taste. That is all.
