Another Monday is upon us and I bring you the 2nd installment of Music Monday. Last week, I said this would most likely be devoted to Shinhwa and indeed my prediction was correct. They released their 11th album, The Classic, on May 16 and I have been listening to it non-stop ever since. For those who don’t know, Shinhwa is a Korean idol group who debuted in March 1998. They are considered legends as they are the longest running idol group in Korean music history. 15 years together is pretty unheard of in the idol world. They have done a lot which I will not write about here as it would just be ridiculously long, but they are pretty frickin awesome (and I highly recommend you watch Shinhwa Broadcast which is one of the most entertaining things I have ever seen.) I thoroughly enjoy this album and if I can stop procrastinating, I hope to write an album review in the this week. Until then, here are the tracks I have been listening to obsessively: Continue reading

My my how time flies. It’s already May and we are almost halfway through the year. Craziness. The past couple of months have been interesting in terms of my mental and emotional state which explains my long absence (not that I am regular about my blogging anyway). February started off fine and then an unexpected repair on my car brought me down and then I spiraled. My spiraling continued throughout March and April was basically the month to pick myself back up. I was reminded of the darkness that I have within myself and hopefully I won’t go there again.

Having no previous experience with the Beautiful Creatures series, I went into this movie pretty much blind. My only reference was the fairly awesome trailer and the presence of acting heavyweights Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, and Emma Thompson immediately grabbed my attention. I have a fascination with the supernatural so this was right up my alley.
One month down, 11 more to go.

After a delayed release, Gangster Squad starring Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone and Sean Penn arrives in theaters today. I really wanted to see this movie after seeing the trailer which is badass. With a cast like this, I figured the film had to be good and my expectations were fairly high. Did Gangster Squad live up to my expectations? Continue reading
