Review: Mistborn Trilogy by Brandon Sanderson

Having read across a few different genres, my fantasy experience was limited to the famous books – Harry Potter, Lord of The Rings, Eragon and a few manga series. I was interested in exploring more fantasy and I found out about the types of magic systems in fantasy stories ranging from soft systems to hard…

Apple Music on Android still sucks, Here’s how to deal with it

Even after all these years, Apple Music on Android still sucks. So much so, that it frustrates the hell out of me. I have used alternatives like Spotify but I still prefer Apple for the larger library and the app interface which focuses on album recommendations and curated playlists. I have developed ways to overcome…

Review: Strong Girl Do Bong Soon

Like the other K-drama I watched and reviewed, I started watching this one with the same motive – to supplement my Korean language studies with light entertainment. As it so happens, the entertainment was just superb. I expected a fun romantic comedy and it delivered perfectly. I watched the hour-long episodes in two or three…

Review: I’m Not A Robot

For a long time, I refused to consider giving a chance to Korean series. I’m not averse to watching shows in foreign languages; I don’t have a problem with watching subbed content if it is good. In fact, I prefer it over the dubs because I feel it loses a lot of the charm of…

Twice, Onces and K-pop

Some time in 2018 as I was browsing YouTube, I came across a playlist called ‘popular music in Asia’. The thumbnail was attractive: beautiful girls in bright colourful outfits so I clicked on it (naturally). I did watch a couple more videos in that playlist but none of them stayed on my mind like the…

Feel-Good Manga & Anime

Action and Thriller manga are definitely great and have their own place but there is so much more variety to explore in the Manga/Anime medium! At the end of an exhausting day, especially if you are having a bad day; there’s nothing like a nice fun manga to cheer you up. These laid-back manga are…

Best Music Service in India (2019) (Spotify vs Apple vs Google)

Exclusive content has made it much easier to choose between video streaming services. The best content on these platforms is unavailable anywhere else. That makes it easier to choose one. Game of thrones and Star Wars? Hotstar. Stranger things and Brooklyn Nine Nine? Netflix. Seinfeld and Harry Potter? Amazon prime video. With music streaming apps,…

Online Privacy: DNS and VPN

Using the internet the way we do everyday is frankly very unsafe. There are companies who are very keen to know each and everything you do on your devices that should be morally out of their reach. These corporations make big bucks by selling our data to advertisers so they make accurate profiles of our…

Stranger Things

Normally, I avoid Action/Crime/Drama TV series and stick to Comedies. I did try watching a few non-comedies (Suits and Breaking Bad) but I didn’t like them. I got into horror movies and books last year and thoroughly enjoyed most of them. I like it when horror movies work on slowly building tension and having a…

Using a BlackBerry in 2019

I use a phone with a QWERTY keyboard. In this day and age.I get a variety of reactions when I pull out my phone in public (mostly pity for being poor, I guess)Which phone is that? When was it released? Keypads are in the past now!Is that a BlackBerry? Didn’t they die out long ago?…
