Recast ABJD – A Year Later – Would I Still Recommend Purchasing Recast?

I shared my decision to purchase my first recast BJD, about 14 months ago now. I wrote a very in depth, as neutral as I could manage, post about the pros and cons of buying Recast ABJD which you can read here.

A year has passed now since my first recast dolls arrived, and I have bought many other Recast BJD since then.

Fantasy Football Tips To Give You The Edge

FANTASY FOOTBALL TIPS TO GIVE YOU THE EDGE

Author: Ashley Munson

The 100th season in NFL history is now just around the corner and, whether you play against your friends for pride or you’re so confident you decide to put your money where your mouth is, the time has come to align your fantasy football stars. Whatever your reasons here are our top five picks who you should be looking to nab in the draft.

5 – ALVIN KAMARA

Kamara left the college set up in Tennessee with respectable if not incredible numbers and was only picked up in round three of the draft in 2017 by the New Orleans Saints but his performances as a rookie caught the eye and he’s established himself as a top quality running back and has made back to back Pro-Bowls. Over his two years in the NFL Kamara has averaged 9.5 receiving yards with 5.1 rushing. Throw into the mix his 31 touchdowns to date and you can see why he’s in our list. read more

Top Ways to Burn Calories with Summer Sports

To lose weight, you need to burn fat and excess calories. However, busy schedules and unhealthy lifestyles during winter may result in numerous weight-related conditions such as obesity. During summer, the weather is warm, and so this is the perfect time to get active and shed some weight. Summer sports are mostly outdoor activities which are more productive and require a lot of energy. Apart from being active, these sports are suitable for both adults and children and are more fun and enjoyable.   read more

BTS World Game Review

BTS now has an official visual novel style game that puts you in the role of managing your favorite boy band. Unfortunately, it is a great concept but has poor execution. There are lots of features which sound fun, but somehow still miss the mark. Even if you love BTS, which I do, this game still feels dull and boring. But somehow it’s cute, and I still find myself playing it and hoping it will get better. I’m grateful they made this game and took time to translate the text to English. Even if it is rather mediocre at best. read more

What I’m Listening To This Week – Monsta X – Who Do U Love?

  1. Monsta X – Who Do U Love?

Monsta X released a new song last week, and they’re on US tour right now. I wish I could go, but it doesn’t look like they’re anywhere close by here. They go to Las Vegas this fall, and I do have family in Vegas, but I dunno if I will be able to take off work, because I might be planning some other vacations this summer.

2. Ariana – 7 Rings

This Ariana Grande Song is about 6 months old now, but I just heard it for the first time last night. It’s to the tune of “A few of my favorite things” from the Sound of Music, but the beat is more hip-hop/pop-y. It actually kinda has almost a kpop feeling to it, I could picture Blackpink singing something like this. read more

What I’m Listening To This Week 6/23/19

I didn’t share a music post last week because we were moving, and still been super busy. Here’s what I’ve listened to the last two weeks.

1.) HYO – Sober English Version.

This song is so catchy. I find myself singing it all the time now.

2.) Troye Sivan – Fools

I first found this song via BTS’ Jung Kook’s cover but the original is good too. I think I actually prefer Jung Kook’s version more though.

The next 3 songs are by an artist named Amber. I really like her voice and the beat to all of these songs. read more

Canadian Bet Calculator Explained And Where To Use Them

Canadian Bet Calculator Explained and Where to Use Them   

 

It seems that there are new types of bets being introduced all the time. Despite the innovations, there are still several that seem to have been around forever and the Canadian bet is one of them.

 

The Canadian bet is a way of getting a large win if your luck is in. Rather than a straightforward win accumulator such as a double or treble, this bet doesn’t fall apart if one selection fails to be a winner.

 

You can get a return on your stake from this bet even if just two of your selections is a winner. Five selections are required for a Canadian (sometimes referred to a a Super Yankee) and there are 26 different bets being laid. read more

What Am I Listening To This Week? Still Not Tired Of Love Songs Or Kpop English Covers

It’s that time again. Time to share with you what I’ve been listening to this week. The first song on the list actually isn’t a KPop song. Are you shocked? lol. But I did discover it when I saw a cover of it by an Asian youtuber. So there is that.

Here’s the original non Kpop version

Lauv and Troye Sivan – I’m So Tired of Long Songs

Here’s the cover I found. Not as good as the original, but still pretty decent.

2. BTS – Fake Love

This is one of my favorite BTS songs and there are a lot of great English Covers Out there. But first, here’s the original by our boys BTS read more

What I’m Listening To This Week – Kpop, English Covers, and Other Music

I thought it might be fun to share like a weekly top 10 of songs I’m listening to each week. It can be a new feature on my blog. The music won’t always be new songs, it will be very eclectic.  Here’s what I’m listening to this week. I have been listening to a lot of Kpop, including some awesome amazing English covers from talented amateur youtube performers. Check them out below!

1.) Goblin – OST – Beautiful (Crush)

Ok so Goblin is one of my favorite Kdrama, like in the top 3 for sure. This is the opening song, and there are dozens and dozens of English covers of this song. Someone should make like a US version of this drama, and use one of these covers for the opening song lol. But I know it’d never be as good as the Korean version, but then I could get more of my friends and family to watch this show because it’s so good. Le sigh – lol. I seriously kinda want this song to be like my first dance wedding song. It’s nice and slow, and most of the lyrics until the last verse are appropriate. Even then, the last verse, although it is sad, especially if you’ve ever watched Goblin, even still taking it away completely from the context of Goblin, you could analyze the lyrics to be like either, you need someone when you have a sorrowful day, their love gets you through those days, or well sadly, life is cruel and in the end, you will be parted from those you love, because one of you will pass away first, leaving the other person with only memories, and since it’s the last verse, it could be after a long life together. Thus even though it’s sad, still symbolizes a life full of love and memories together. And the first few verses – depending on whose cover you’re listening to, have lines like “It’s a beautiful life. I’ll be the one to cherish you. Now and forever girl I’ll stand by you.” which definitely could apply to a wedding. And it’s just so beautiful – I tear up every time I hear this song. read more

Cortex Complete Smart Dolls Will Release Soon

According to this post on the official website, the first full, non-hybrid, cortex smartdolls will release for official launch in just 2 weeks on 6/13/19. The models available will include Mirai Anniversary, Gaia, and Melody. They will be fully assembled dolls, and not model kits.

They had a soft launch of Mirai Anniversary and Gaia Complete Cortex dolls earlier this month, which I completely missed.

I am anxious to see what the prices will be on the 13th when the official launch begins.

The vinyl version Smart Dolls cost 52,000 yen, which is approximately $475 USD. For those not familiar with Japanese import dolls, such as Asian ball-jointed dolls or Dollfie Dream, this price may seem shocking. However, for those who are already collecting other similar dolls, these prices are quite reasonable. read more

Arguably, the best buzz was finding an unheard of prospect and seeing him flourish and become the star of your team. read more
