    What are you watching?

    OK, so Solar injured her back during a rehearsal, and I believe it was suggested she try pole dancing as a back-strengthening exercise. She liked it so much, she decided to study it seriously. After a year, she was able to perform this with her instructor (it's considered an art form in Korea...

    What book are you reading right now?
