fromis_9 - Glass Shoes

fromis_9 - Glass Shoes

fromis_9 are a 9-member girlgroup formed through the 2017 reality show 'Idol School', with the name 'fromis_9' meaning 'from Idol School 9'. Today I'll be taking a listen to their pre-debut single 'Glass Shoes' which aims to project them into the hallyu wave, with a soulful and pure schoolgirl vibe, similar to that of earlier Gfriend works.   Being a fan of girlgroups and especially ones with bubbly and sweet tones, I anticipate Glass Shoes will meet my expectations and be a song I'll

fromis_9 - Fun Factory

fromis_9 - Fun Factory

fromis_9 returns with their 2019 album 'Fun Factory' after riding off the success of last year's hit song Love Bomb. The title track 'FUN!' aims to be a bubbly and gleeful Summertime song to bring a cute and playful atmosphere, and who better to represent a bubbly Summer song than the innocent and pure girls of fromis_9!   Having been a fan of fromis_9 since the explosion of cuteness from Love Bomb (no pun intended) I've been looking forward to see what fromis_9 come up with next, cons

Apink - One & Six

Apink - One & Six

Apink returns with their 2018 album 'One & Six' and the title track 'I'm So Sick' also known as ' 1도 없어' officially. Apink aims to transition into a more mature and feminine concept over yesteryear's 'No No No' and 'Mr. Chu' hits. One & Six being one of Apink's more recent works at the time of review, the members have developed and grown their vocals and trained their singing to be top-notch over the years given that the group debuted all the way back in 2011.   I have hig

EXID - I Love You (Single)

EXID - I Love You (Single)

EXID's 2018 single, I Love You, marks the comeback of their vocalist and leader Solji, who was absent from previous comebacks due to complications with her health. The five-member group returns with their new single, I Love You, a single that harkens to the themes of 80's disco and pop culture with the overly-engineered synths, VCR effects, polaroids, extreme shots of saturation and color, as well as the amazing vocal performances from the girls.   I've been a big fan of EXID and am gl

Input Club's Hako Violet - Lightweight & Consistent

Input Club's Hako Violet - Lightweight & Consistent

When Input Club and Massdrop - oh, sorry, I meant Drop - had a feud on mechanical keyswitches, Input Club settled and made their own 'Hako' flavor of tactile switches. What I have here today is the Hako Violet by Input Club, one of the lightest if not the lightest tactile switch I have ever used in my life, at just a 50g bottom-out from what I researched online about this particular switch.   The Hako Violet is the brother of Input's Club Hako line, next to its siblings, the Hako Clear

SuperM - SuperM

SuperM - SuperM

Dubbed 'The Avengers of K-Pop', the Korean pop SuperM is a group comprised of SM's current greatest male vocalists, rappers, and dancers. The group has made their official debut with the release of their self-titled album 'SuperM' with the title 'Jopping' which is described as jumping & popping.   I find it cool that SM has decided to create a super group with all the elements of the individual groups together into one. I believe this is for North American success projection, but o

High Impact Weapons Are Fun - D2 Shadowkeep

Decided today was a Warlock day, so I hopped into Rumble and started experimenting.   I initially ran Coldheart and a curated Lonesome(Reckoning sidearm), but that didn't go over so nicely in a lobby of Recluses and Riskrunners. Following that, I started looking around in my vault for different kinetic weapons, as I still wanted to do a build with Coldheart.   What I have for you today is not a build featuring Coldheart. Instead, I have a build that I'm tentatively namin

Online Acquisition: RX 470

Online Acquisition: RX 470

I regret to inform that the R9 270X I purchased locally has ceased to function properly. The card, while somewhat functional, has begun to artifact. Not being too fond of the red bars across my display, I decided to pick up a RX 470 online. Five days later, and here's the card!  This new card is specifically a Sapphire Nitro+ 4GB unit. I have to say, I really do appreciate the physical LED controller on this model. Software can be updated in a way contrary to my liking, but no one is t

Oh Hayoung - OH!

Oh Hayoung - OH!

Oh Hayoung of Apink makes her solo professional debut as a singer in her first mini-album, the lovingly-titled 'OH!', which is cutely her surname. I was super excited to hear that she was making a solo album as I am a huge fan of Hayoung, she's my second favorite member of Apink, closely behind Jeong Eunji, South Korea's #1 vocalist and absolute fluffball of cuteness. I find Hayoung's voice unique with its misty, pillowy soft natural tone and ability to effortlessly reach highs. She blends

BTOB Blue - When It Rains (Single)

BTOB Blue - When It Rains (Single)

BTOB Blue is a subunit consisting of BTOB's Eunkwang, Changsub, Hyunsik, and Sungjae, essentially all the vocalists of BTOB minus the rappers, Ilhoon and Peniel. When It Rains is the quartet's 2018 single, and of course will follow the ballad style that the vocalists of BTOB are known for. I love the vocals of BTOB a lot so having all the vocalist in a subunit like this seems like it will make for a soothing, relaxing, comfortable, warm ballad to listen to when it rains, no pun intended.

Jeong Eunji - The Space

Jeong Eunji - The Space

Eunji's EP, The Space, features her next exploration into her solo career, with her new title track, The Spring, a ballad made for thinking about the season of Spring. I am a huge fan of Eunji due to her amazing voice, and I put Eunji as South Korea's #1 vocalist. Her voice is also unique and soothing with a cool tone to it. I can't wait to listen to this EP and share my thoughts on each song. I have chosen to leave out the piano version of The Spring due to it being relatively the same as the o

Ace of Angels - New Moon

AOA's latest EP, New Moon, released November 2019, has officially come out, and having bene a long-time fan of AOA for the latter part of my life, I am extremely excited to check it out. This time around, AOA has 5 members with the departure of Kwon Mina, but if their Mnet Queendom appearance taught us anything, it's that AOA can slay the entire K-pop industry no matter how many members leave. Their title sing Come See Me has been highly anticipated, so I will be sharing my thoughts on not

MX Brown - Tactility? What Tactility?

MX Brown - Tactility? What Tactility?

The MX Brown is the last of the Cherry originals, its siblings being the MX Blue and MX Red, a clicky and a linear switch respectively. The MX Brown is the tactile switch that completes the trifecta of Cherry's flagship switch line.   I personally prefer linear for its smooth actuation, and tactile for its actuation indication, and unfortunately the MX Brown isn't tactile at all. It's almost a linear. I describe it as a Red with a food baby. The bump is so minimal, yet it is just enoug

Think of Task Manager like a report to the department head

A common complaint or concern I hear with Task Manager is that what it reports doesn't seem very useful or that they wish what it'd report was something more meaningful. A commonly cited one is CPU % Utilization, which people have commented that it doesn't really represent what the CPU is actually doing.   After stewing on this I thought of a way to think about what Task Manager is better thought of: a status report to a company's department head. For example, let's take a company's he

MX Blue - The Worst-Sounding MX Switch

MX Blue - The Worst-Sounding MX Switch

The MX Blue is a part of the iconic trifecta of original Cherry MX switches next to its siblings the Red and Brown, as well as their distant relatives, the Clear and Black. The MX Blue is the flagship clicky switch manufactured by Cherry and cloned by the likes of Gateron, Kailh, and Outemu, but what they all have in common is the same mechanism, the click jacket, to generate their tinny, wimpy, dissatisfactory click.   The main draw towards opting for a clicky switch such as the

The Blue ZIlent V2 is a silent tactile switch offered by ZealPC, the same vendor who has created other famous switches such as the Zealios V2, Tealios V2, and the Healios. This time around, Zeal has created the Zilents V2 which was made to compete with the MX Clear. The Zilents V2 are offered in 62g, 65g, 67g, and 78g weights, similar to its brother, the Zealios V2, which are also offered in those four weights, and additionally in four colors, with a progressively darker stem color with eac

Demystifying Ray Tracing Further

With NVIDIA's RTX cards out and the company pushing ray tracing, I figured I have a look around at what I could in the graphics community through blog posts and whatnot about ray tracing itself. Then interacting with the community it seems like there are some misunderstandings and perhaps a warped interpretation of what's going on. So this post is a random assortment of thoughts regarding the encounters of others discussing this topic and what my input is.   Ray tracing describes a typ

Discussing Myths: You can't boot Windows that was installed for another computer

This is a statement I see prevalent in tech circles: Whatever computer you install Windows on can't be booted on another computer. The most common cited reason is the drivers that were installed on that particular Windows will conflict and cause issues with the hardware in another computer. This is false. If only because I've not only successfully booted into Windows installed for another machine, but managed to do work in it. I used this method to fix someone else's computer and even when the d

Explaining "Asynchronous Compute"

One of the more touted features of applications using DirectX 12 and Vulkan is "asynchronous compute." Over the years it's seemed to gain some mystique with people saying one thing or another creating a sort of stir of information. In this blog we'll go over what asynchronous compute is, where it came about from, and how NVIDIA and AMD handle it.   What exactly is asynchronous compute? Instead of trying to find an answer from the interwebs as this term didn't really exist much bef
