Tuesday Update

Since there’s no “Pride and Prejudice” this week, we have another week to speculate about the mysterious corpse that just showed up.


Meanwhile, today you can check out my essay, “Subtitled Love Affairs: Why Millions of Americans Prefer Korean Television,” at the pop culture blog, the Hooded Utilitarian. The editor, Noah, is an interesting guy who writes about romances as well as comic books. Korean stuff goes under the radar here in the States, so I’m chiming in with some thoughts on K-dramas. Stop by and join the discussion.


You’ll see a few ads on the site these days, as I experiment with ways to pay for the endless supply of coffee that keeps me screen-capping into the wee hours. But I’m picky about what I advertise and I promise to stay classy.


Grandmother is annoyed that I never have time to write about her in the uncaps, so she gets her own screencap here. In one of my fantasy lives, I live at “Three Meals a Day” and grandmother forces me to eat delicious home-cooked dinners every day. We should all have this grandmother. I hope everyone gets some home-cooked food to celebrate the new year!
