When a beatboxer in a Japan and a freestyle dancer in the US meet (where else?) online, it makes for vival video magic. [boing boing]

“What I like about women is always strength, but Chinese women are even stronger. It’s like strong women on steroids.” Diane von Furstenberg talked to the Wall Street Journal about bringing her goods to the Chinese luxury market, and what might be “the China century.” [WSJ]

Seems like everybody is excited about getting some of that Chinese luxury dollar, as U.S. real estate developers are building properties with the Chinese buyer in mind. [WSJ]

While many victims of last year’s accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant in Japan are still seeking compensation for their injuries, they’re not turning to the courts for assistance. [Washington Post]

Some folks in Iran are developing a video game called “The Stressful Life of Salman Rushdie and Implementation of his Verdict,” which would show what life is like threat of a death fatwa. [Wonkette]

We’re saving our pennies and counting down the days until the clothes that artist Yayoi Kusama created for her collaboration for Louis Vuitton are available. [Fashion Copious]

New York State Assemblywoman (and Queens native – holla!) Grace Meng could be New York State’s first Asian-American congresswoman. [NYT]

Apparently in China there is not one but FOUR restaurants staffed entirely by robots. One question: how much do you tip? [Eater National]

You guys, The Man With The Iron Fists, the directorial debut of Rza of the Wu-Tang Clan, looks AWESOME. [Rolling Stone]

China is getting its own Netflix-like video service. [Deadline]

Awkward! South Korea backed out of signing a military pact with Japan, their first since World War II, at the last minute. This may have been due to pressures from, conservatives, liberals and, well, everybody else in South Korea. [Washington Post]

Dear Moviefone: I’m pretty sure EVERYBODY knew no. 24 on your list of 25 things you thought people didn’t know about Full Metal Jacket. Especially Asian ladies who still get harassed by dudes yelling “Me so horny!” in their faces. [Moviefone]

Best Coast covers “Rhiannon” for an upcoming tribute album to Stevie Nicks, and it is ever so dreamy. [NME]

In an interview with Boston Review, author Junot Diaz shared some thoughts on the writings of women of color: “And what they were producing in knowledge was something that the world needed to hear in order to understand itself, that I needed to hear in order to understand myself in the world, and that no one—least of all male writers of color—should be trying to silence.” [Boston Review]

This is hilarious, and a must-read, y’all: “How To Be A Reverse-Racist: An Actual Step by Step List For Oppressing White People” “8. Make sure most representations of them in the media are negative. They should almost always be portrayed as pasty, stringy-haired, rhythm-less, sexless, uptight, and booooring.” [Black Girl Dangerous]
