Every Sunday we’ll be reflecting on the latest additions to our long list of Favorite Things. This post is your weekly update on the best trash in this universe. You’re welcome.
This is our first Fav Things post! This was our first week having a blog in which to document the trash that is our daily existence! YoooOOOooooo /INSERT 10 MILLION CELEBRATORY LINE STICKERS HERE
Okay, anyway, we both agreed that this felt like an absurdly long week. It might have something to do with the fact that it preceded a long weekend, and also the world lost Alan Rickman which was NOT OKAY and we are pretending it nEVER HAPPENED. Let’s focus on the rest of this extremely long post instead in order to avoid confronting our feelings. Btw, this post will ALWAYS be really long. We’re not sorry.
Cheese in the Trap
I watched the first four episodes of the new drama and I was hooked. Because of who I am as a person, once finishing the latest episode I went and barreled my way through the entirety of the web comic the drama is based off of, which was made possible by Odd Squad Scanlations. The way they translated the comic to overlay on the original webtoon is literally the coolest shit I have ever seen, check it out.
Side note: you should know I keep thinking of this song and have been humming ‘cheese in the trap, ch-cheese in the trap‘ all week.
This Tumblr post:
I honestly don’t really know why this has made it onto my weekly favorite things list, but truly, it is a gift to the world.
Park Bo Gum
Now, listen, hear me out here because I have appreciated this baby child since I first started watching Answer Me 1988 in November/December (when did this show start??) but this week I followed a blog that posts pictures of him on the regular and, damn if that isn’t the best thing ever.
Ugh, that sweet face. Kill me. Just end me here, he is too precious for this world and I am ON BOARD.
Bonus Answer Me 1988 Bun Dance Because Reasons (even if it isn’t PBG):
TRUE BONUS: TUMBLR EDITION
While Mari & I were editing this post, this glorious coincidence happened on my Tumblr dashboard and it was far too good to pass up adding to the list of favorite things. And, yes, prkbgm is the blog I followed this week.
Without You – Parachute
I DON’T HAVE THIS SONG ON INFINITE LOOP. YOU CAN’T PROVE IT. YOU HAVE NO EVIDENCE.
… Okay yes I do. Because Parachute is my favorite band ever on this planet and I am mindlessly devoted to them in an utterly shameless way. In fact, no one is allowed to look at my face on March 11th when their new album drops. Just leave me there to die. But also tHIS IS A GREAT FUCKING SONG AND I DON’T WANT TO LIVE THIS LIFE WITHOUT ANNE. [AND ANNE DOESN’T WANT TO LIVE WITHOUT YOU, MARI- Anne]
This Tumblr text post:
Because no other Tumblr text post has ever managed to summarize my entire personality with this much terrifying accuracy. Someone should really print this out and tape it to my forehead as a matter of public safety.
LJS at the Burberry Menswear show in London
No ssshshhhhHHSHHHHH I’M FINE I’M TOTALLY OKAY DON’T WORRY ABOUT ME THIS IS MY FAV RING OF HELL GOODBYE
First to be inducted into the Swash Hall of Fame is
Asia’s Princess Asia’s Prince, Lee Kwang Soo (Running Man). Specifically, Kwang Soo’s U.S. commercial for the Toyota Rav 4. When we discovered this earlier in the week, our immediate reaction was pure dumbfounded amazement/disbelief followed by deep appreciation. Also, we rapidly became confused as to whether we had, in fact, shot this commercial ourselves while sleepwalking because it totally seems like something we would do.
Parachute’s 2016 Tour Schedule
… WHICH ONCE AGAIN DOES NOT STOP IN VEGAS EVER
… AND WON’T BE ANYWHERE CLOSE TO VEGAS EXCEPT ON A RANDOM THURSDAY
WHY DO YOU DO THIS TO ME
WHEN I LOVE YOU SO MUCH MORE THAN EVERYONE ELSE DOES WHY
/SPIRALS INTO DESPAIR
Anne’s internet connection
My internet connection is the devil. I have had the technicians out at my house not one, not two, but THREE times within 7 days because my modem was so often offline. I am SO GLAD I pay so much for the approximately 3 minutes of internet browsing time I can glean.
The ordeal ultimately resulted in having to move my modem to a second cable jack (the only other cable jack in my apartment), which was conveniently behind my bed. Thus, my entire room had to be rearranged. It’s been real, internet, oh-so real.
The loss of amazing performers
There has been a lot of death since the start of 2016 and notably we lost two people who had a profound impact on the lives of so many.
Rest in Peace, Alan Rickman and David Bowie. We are so thankful for everything you gave the world.
This week’s choice was a total no-brainer for both of us because Henry is the world’s most adorable trashcan and this post made our entire lives beautiful and perfect. We fn love him in general. He is a puppy of the world GOD BLESS. #magic #socool
