WELCOME TO MY PAGE!
WELCOME TO MY PAGE!

This month I'll be traveling to see the solar eclipse.  The  next one will be in 2044 so really hoping the clouds stay away on April 8th!

I usually do an April Showers theme, but I'm going with a celestial one in honor of the eclipse.  In addition to space images, I'm including my favorite stars.




                                                                                         
                                   BIO                                                        

I started watching Asian dramas around February 2019.  Eternal Love was my first and my first love.  I started searching voraciously for another Cdrama that would make me feel that way again.  Several months later I found Goblin and fell in love, this time with Kdramas.  Now I’m searching for another drama that will make me fall in love all over again.

I love romance, character development, strong women, and good relationships whatever form they may take. I also enjoy martial arts, fantasy, historicals, Kaiju, and action dramas and movies.  In addition to Cdramas and Kdramas I also watch dramas/movies from  Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, and the Philippines.   Lately, I've been exploring older movies going back to the silent films in the 1920's and 1930's.

Mostly I just want to watch a romance with all the goofy tropes including the Subway product placement.  I don’t care if it’s boy-girl, boy-boy, or girl-girl I want everyone to live happily every after.♡♡♡

 

My rating system explained, tongue in cheek.  

An addendum to understanding my ratings:  I rate pre-1990's kung fu and kaiju movies on a curve.  They were usually cheaply made for a niche audience.  I also give silent films from the 20's and 30's some leeway as they were breaking new ground in film storytelling and acting.  The dramas and movies that I've rated as 10's were the first in a particular genre that made me fall in love with it.  They were also from early in my drama watching life and would  be rated lower now.  They may not be perfect, but they hooked me into the drama and Asian movie life, so I left them at the 10's they are.

WATCHLIST EXPLAINED


CW: It stresses me out to try and keep track so I rarely use it.  

PTW:  So many dramas, so little time

 On Hold: It's not you, it's me     

Dropped:  Oh, yeah, it's you, not me 



        Our PALE BLUE DOT ❤
"To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

-Carl Sagan
