Jungkook, BTS, and Popcast Cashing In On Lazy K-Pop Takes
Dec 19 2023
Jungkook, BTS, and Popcast Cashing In On Lazy K-Pop Takes
At the beginning of December, Popcast, a NYT music podcast featuring host Jon Caramanica (NYT music critic) and special guest Kara, positioned themselves as the "grown ups" in the room up against gremlin Stans to discuss how uh... (checks notes) Butter and Golden are a sign of a great decline.This was a click bait power grab...so right back at ya! Alison, Lia and Megan are here to say "if you're going to go for clicks don't be lazy, don't be boring, don't be smug, and don't cherry pick your hot take data." And don't listen to the Popcast episode unless you used to LOVE dating wannabe gatekeepers that would show you their extensive bootleg cassette collections and talk about how they loved a band back when...(sorry this triggered Lia's PTSD of hooking up with dudes that wanted to lecture her on Phish when she DID NOT CARE). Or unless you want to hear people dunk on Trolls 3 or Steve Aoki because that makes them super edgy. Or want to hear how TXT are the uh (checks notes) disappointing Big Hit baby brothers.Do listen to us though. Because we aren't any of those things.NEW!

Halloween Special: Wild World of Fan Fic

Halloween Special: Wild World of Fan Fic
Happy Halloween! Your intrepid hosts (Alison, Tonya, Megan and Lia) decided to brave the wilds of fan fic and see what lurks in the woods. We read fic with shapeshifters, a walk through the omegaverse,  alternate universes and grim reapers. No shaming, just exploring where fantasy and fandom can lead...with a side detour to get thinky over implications of AI. Please be warned there is talk of shipping and puppy play...and Lia lets you know exactly what goes down in Omegaverse. But please don't take it too seriously. This is strictly for fun. Meow.PS: We also aren't here for shaming fan fic.

When We Have to Hold Another Fave Accountable: RM
Sep 6 2023
When We Have to Hold Another Fave Accountable: RM
In the second installment of her NEW AND LEAST FAVORITE SERIES ON THE PLANET, today Afternoona Army host, Lia, asks why did RM use his giant Instagram platform to showcase a song from a convicted abuser of women. Is she advocating censorship?  No. Does she think RM personally endorses abuse. Nothing even close. Is she an anti? NO! GOD! NO! But as a literal card-carrying member of ARMY, does she have the right to use her small corner of the internet to ask hard questions to members? She thinks so! Otherwise she feels complicit in poor choices and that's not okay. Current mood: BLERGH.NEW!

When We Have to Hold a Fave Accountable: Kim Taehyung's Live
It's never fun to hold a favorite idol accountable. For us, BTS is generally a place of safety and deep joy. We love ALL the members AND we love this amazing and diverse ARMY fandom. But today, V made some choices in his Weverse live that left us with questions, and it's fair to ask them. Join host Lia and friend-of-the-pod Becky (who is also a V bias) as we discuss what we observed in the live, why we found it disappointing, and what we hope we can expect from Kim Taehyung moving forward. This isn't the conversation we wanted to have over our lunch, but it felt important to address. NEW!

The Rose: Tonya and Amy Recap the Post Lolla Experience
It all started with a message from Tonya to Amy on Instagram. "The Rose is playing a special Lollapalooza after show on Friday, August 4 in Chicago...would you want to go?" Spoiler alert. Amy said "YES," and is now a changed woman. Join us for a very special Afternoona Army and Afternoona Delight collaboration with me (Tona) and Amy as we recap the experience of seeing The Rose at their post Lolla midnight show at The Vic Theatre in Chicago. We take you on a meandering tour through the Chicago suburbs to a local K-Pop store, bubble tea cafe, and dinner and snacks at Joong Boo market before finally heading to the city to wait in a line two blocks long with the lovely, welcoming Black Rose community. Then...the transformative experience of seeing The Rose live, getting home at 3:00 a.m., and decompressing the day after. It's a whole journey, folks, and we're so excited to share it with you!Places to visit if you're in the Chicago burbs...Kpopstar in MundeleinBubble Tea Lab in MundeleinJoong Boo Market in GlenviewThe Vic Theatre in ChicagoThe Rose Resources...The Rose official website: https://www.officialtherose.com/The Rose on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/5na1LmEmK2VzNLje9snJYW?si=gIPpoAcJRt2-_ypHWPiGpAThe Rose on Apple Music: https://music.apple.com/us/artist/the-rose/1301579986A very comprehensive fan-created Spotify playlist (as of August 2023) of group and solo releases: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/0r6EPQ4pG16AtOzCu3Y4u8?si=fpmUg1z1TGKRUEQi7y7S_QInformation about the official app, The Rosarium: https://www.officialtherose.com/app. Premium members get access to exclusive content and presale codes for concerts.Official YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@theroseofficialOfficial Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/official_therose/Official TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@official.theroseThe Rose is also on Facebook, Twitter, and Discord, and you can find links on their website, above.Both the website and The Rosarium app have tour dates and links to ticket vendorsTour information: The North American tour dates for the Dawn to Dusk tour have already finished presales and are on public sale.
