'Kill This Love': BLACKPINK's Back to Kick (Br)ass

BLACKPINK's back in our area - and quite frankly, they ought to just look into getting a sublet or something because these frequent visits are getting kind of ridiculous. Kidding! May they buy a house and remain in our area forever and ever. (And may we all remain forever young.) Jennie, Lisa, Rosé…

The Top 60 Songs of 2018

The year is almost over, and I still loathe lists. In fact, I sat down to do this about seven times and simply couldn't do it. So...I won't. And you can't make me! Instead, I'm choosing to take you through a very cool, urban and interesting journey through my favorite songs of the year in no real…


'Solo': The Emancipation of BLACKPINK's Jennie

So let it be written, so let it be done: BLACKPINK is the revolution. Unlike the West, where girl groups rise to fame before someone decides they're Alice_Deejay_-_Better_Off_Alone.mp3 before crawling back for a reunion tour years later to recreate the nostalgia for some coin (see you at the Fifth…

'Square Up' Is Proof: It's Time to Join the BLACKPINK Revolution

Look, they said it themselves: BLACKPINK is the revolution. It's been approximately 84 years, give or take, but the fabulous foursome known as BLACKPINK - that's Jennie, Rosé, Jisoo and Lisa - are not only in our area again, they've gone and razed our homes, set fire to our crops and let our…

Pop Goes The Future: The Many Reasons to Live for 2018

2017 might have been a tough one for many of us, but just as a wise woman once said after filming Evita: nothing takes the past away like the future. And so, as opposed to adding to the noise of the endless lists recapping the best parts of the past twelve months or dwelling on the…

Only Gang to Run the Game in High Heels: Blackpink Cover Wonder Girls' 'So Hot'

First of all, I hope that everyone had a fantastic Christmas. Unless you don't do that, in which case, I hope your December 25th was fantastic for no particular reason at all. Mine was predominately dedicated to chasing around a new puppy, which is probably why I hadn't gotten around to writing…

The Top 20 Songs of 2017

Surprise: I'm breaking with tradition. As opposed to doing a complete Top 100 Singles list as I've done for the past almost-decade or so (today is the ten year anniversary of MuuMuse, by the way), I've decided to take a different approach. Not because there aren't more than enough good songs out…

BLACKPINK Cover Miguel's "Sure Thing" & Beyoncé's "Yoncé"

It's become quite clear now that BLACKPINK, K-Pop's great hope for girl groups, are refusing to leave our area any time soon. This is not a problem. Following the release of their record-breaking, pink-hued summer smash "As If It's Your Last," the girls — they're Jennie, Jisoo, Rosé and Lisa…

As If They're Our Last: BLACKPINK Are Still K-Pop's Great Hope

BLACKPINK's back in our areaaa — and not a moment too soon. To be fair, there must have been an immense amount of pressure on the girls to make their comeback this week. (Err...beyond the already too intense, exhaustion-inducing expectations put upon Korean pop acts as it is, of course.) Seven…
