Please Monsta X and BTS do not listen to this – Featuring Tya

One of my Discord Children, Tya, stops by to talk about Fan Fiction and one again we go completely off the rails. I learn some things I never knew about BTS. Tune in for fan fiction talk, stay for Yoongi's feet. 

 

Something I wanted to clarify really quickly. When Tya says AMBW it stands for 'Asian Man (men) and Black Woman (women).

Monsta X, If you Ever Hear this, Pretend like you Didn’t.

This episode can also be called "Lee Jooheon, Iris is waiting for you."

 

In one of the wildest episodes in the two years of this podcast (Has it been two years? 2020 has been 150 years, so we don't even know), Iris and Kat come on to talk to Leslie about all three of them being Hagbebes. A term (not lovingly) coined by younger Monbebe's who can't drive or pay for their own concert tickets. Leslie, Iris, and Kat believe this just makes them groupie witches and are patiently awaiting their powers. 

 

Bra talk, stalker talk, Dasani talk.  Listen in! Also Dasani, if you want to sponsor us.. hey...

 

Content warning: Brief mentions of medical procedures and poop. I told you this was a wild ride.

Quinzel’s Quick COVID Prose

"Be clearly aware of the stars and infinity on high. Then life seems almost enchanted after all" -Vincent Van Gough (I think?)

Also Infinity on High is the name of a Fall Out Boy album, but I digress.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Everything around us is in ruins. Everyone around us is no longer here. It hurts.

And I believe that in the midst of the ruin, the fire, and the smoke, when I look up, I see stars.

And when I see stars, peeking through, shimmering in the darkness, I know things will get better. I know eventually I will be pulled out of the darkness to be fully embraced by a shimmering, loving light

But in this moment, I am still very, very sad.

Supernatural and Randomness

Oh my god. This episode is long y'all. As long as the road on Supernatural. 

 

Kim and I come together to discuss the ending of Supernatural. While we do talk about it, it also devolves into talks of our past, Aaron Carter, Lance Bass, and K-Pop. I hope you will join us.

Zoom Santa: A Wonderful Way To Avoid the Holiday COVID-19 Blues

You haven't seen me write as much. Well, in these times of COVID 19, movie reviews are non-existent and, to be fair, my emotions have been all over the place.

I don't say this to get you to feel sorry for me. I say this because I imagine you're a lot like me. While taking the current pandemic seriously and doing your part to slow the spread, you've watched comic book conventions, movies, and many other things that you love get canceled. And at the time I'm writing this, we really don't have a way to gauge when, or even if, things go back to normal.

I had come to terms that since things didn't slow down by the end of summer, that the holidays wouldn't look the way that they have in the past.

But what has transpired is feeling like I live in two different worlds, one where COVID-19 does exist, and another where people carry on like it never existed in the first place.

While that's another post entirely, I've made some executive decisions regarding how I do the holidays this year and one thing was for certain, Mall Santa was out.

Living in the times of COVID-19 means constantly asking yourself, "is it worth it?" for every interaction and move you make. Pandemic or not, Santa is always busy. Even if you social distance from him, there's not quite a way to social distance when standing in line for hours.

As cautious as I am, I still miss the magic of Christmas. I miss the Christmas Parades, the Breakfast with Santa, all of it. That's why I am so glad that Zoom Santa is a thing.

Zoom was already gaining popularity well before the pandemic, but its popularity has since skyrocketed. We've found a way to communicate with one another while remaining distant. Life goes on, people say, but we do things a little differently so someone's life can continue.

That's the cool thing about Zoom Santa. while you aren't physically able to sit on Santa's lap, it gives kiddos a chance to have one-on-one time with Santa, which I think makes it a more personalized experience.

There are other people doing Zoom Santa, but Billie Taylor, a school teacher, really stood out to me. He cares about his community and wanted to give back. I was able to get him to sit down and interview with me about what gave him the idea to become Zoom Santa. Keep reading as I get to know a little bit more about this awesome Zoom Santa.

Quinzel Lee: What gave you the idea to do Zoom Santa?

Billie: "Well, 2020 has been kind of a strange year to say the least. With Covid-19 having a huge impact on the way we carry out our daily lives these days, and the need for social distancing, it hit me that there might be a lot of people that would normally take their kids to go see Santa that will choose not to do that in order to stay away from large crowds. Times have also been tough for many of us financially, so this idea seemed like a way to both make a little money for my family and bring Santa to people who want to avoid large crowds."

Quinzel: What is one of your favorite childhood memories of Santa?

Billie: "One of my favorite childhood memories about Santa is about how my Grandpa would dress up as Santa every Christmas and come to our house with gifts and candy. It was so exciting to have the “actual” big man himself in my own house! This only worked for a few years though, because at a certain point I realized that Santa was actually my Grandpa. Knowing that he was my Grandpa didn’t make it any less special to me though. I was still excited when he would come over as Santa on Christmas eve, even when I knew it was my Grandpa playing Santa."

Quinzel: What Christmas movie do you think portrays Santa in the best way?

Billie: "I love so many Christmas movies, but my favorite portrayal of Santa is in The Santa Clause movies. In this movie, you see a regular guy, hard-pressed by life, through a series of events transform from this selfish guy, into Santa Claus, full of Christmas love and magic. I know it is kind of cheesy, but it shows us that anyone can be Santa, and in fact, we are all Santa. If we allow love, compassion, kindness, and the spirit of giving to come into our own hearts, in a way we all transform into Santa."

Quinzel: What does your family think about you playing Santa?

Billie: "They love it! My younger kids still believe in Santa, so they are excited that Daddy is being one of Santa’s helpers. One thing about me is that I am a huge nerd who loves to go to comic conventions, and cosplay as some of my favorite characters. For the past eight months, there have been no comic conventions due to Covid-19, and I have been extremely missing that part of my life. My wife made the comment to me that being Santa is my opportunity to cosplay during these strange unprecedented times, and she is happy for me to get that out of this as well."

Quinzel: Last question. If Santa could bring you anything you wanted, what would you want and why?

Billie: "I could easily go for the “all the feels” answer and say that I would wish for all of the political tension to end in our country, or for there to be an end to Covid-19, but how about I go nerdy with this question. If Santa could bring me anything I wanted for Christmas, I would love to have a PS5 with the Spider-Man Miles Morales game! In the past 15 years, I have only purchased one video game console. My kids are no longer babies, and I just wrapped up my Master's Degree, so it would be fun to have this game to fill some time! And I absolutely love Miles Morales Spider-Man, so the thought of web-slinging through New York as him sounds like a good time!"

If you are as inspired by this story as I am, you should definitely book a session with Zoom Santa. The awesome thing is that it's not only super personal, a memory your kids will never forget, but very affordable too. For some good old-fashioned Christmas fun, check out Zoom Santa's Facebook page where there are daily posts of all things Christmas.

Schedule a time slot today and make Christmas special this year!

Christmas 2020 may be one of the most, for lack of a better word, unique holidays we have seen in this lifetime, but people like Billie are determined to make the best of it.

The Rona Episode: How I’ve been coping K-pop Edition

First off I need to apologize for the audio quality. I don't know what was going on here, but it will be fixed for next time. 

 

Welcome back y'all. I've missed you. I now have an adult child and possibly a beard. In that order. I've fallen in love and I want to take you on the journey with me. So sit back, relax and have a listen.

I watched the Monsta X ‘Fantasia X’ Film, and now I have questions.

I am going to start the entry out by saying I rarely use the N word. Like ever. However, I am pretty sure I uttered it 10 times in two minutes and 58 seconds.

If you are like me, you have already preordered their newest comback album which is set to release next month. This video was part of a scheduled release. I watched it and because I get confused with time travel, I have some questions. Here we go.

  • Why is there always crime and time travel?
  • Where the hell are we in the space time continuum?
  • Why is Shownu so damn fine?
The things I would do to (and for) this man.
  • This isn't a question, but Joohoney's voice hits in the beginning
  • Why did that man let Changkyun snatch up his paper? If a grown man came to me and snatched my news paper, we'd be fighting.
I think everyone is still. Is this another clue?
  • Judging by the hair in 90% of this clip, most of this is pre Fantasia. Like, they stole keys to get to the fantasy world? Or is this after Fantasia, they lived out their fantasy and everything went to shit after? Are they just trying to get back to happiness?
  • Minhyuk would risk it all for Joohoney and you cannot tell me a single word different.
I am going to be 100% honest with you when I tell you I'd risk it all for any of them. Ask my husband.
  • My dudes, where did y'all find flip phones?
  • Also, where the hell did you find a pay phone!?
  • Why is Joohoney either always trying to 'Hack the Gibson' (If you don't understand that, you may be young) or thieving shit? Which goes back to my first bullet point.
  • It looked like when he twirled the key ring on his finger that he only took one set of keys, but he gave Shownu one, and he gave Hyungwon one. I don't know anything anymore.

So this is where I stand on it. I've watched it three times today, and will probably watch it again when I have a moment. What did you get from the video? Are you looking forward to Fatal Love? Also did you realize immediately that on the preview of Fatal Love, that is Minhyuk's mouth? If we realized it instantly, does that mean we have a problem?
