BIRTHDAY CELEBRASIAN! Wayne Wang

January 13th, 2011 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana




Happy birthday to filmmaker Wayne Wang, who turned 62 yesterday!

As you probably know, Wang is the director responsible for bringing The Joy Luck Club to the silver screen–a triumphant Hollywood breakthrough for Asian female actresses (and shining moment for my boyfriend Russell Wong)–as well as critical favorites like Chan Is Missing and Dim Sum: A Little Bit Of Heart.

We can’t wait to see more films–like his upcoming Chinatown doc–from Wang! But, like, more Tamlyn and less JLo, y’know?

AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! The People In The Panda Suits

December 6th, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

Pandas are sickeningly cute. But they’re also dumb as fuck. They survive almost entirely on bamboo, which poses all kinds of problems; they frequently kill their young by accident or neglect; and they seem to have something against sex and reproducing more sickeningly-cute-but-dumb-as-fuck panda spawn.

Researchers at the famed Hetaoping Research and Conservation Centre in Sichuan Province, China, have been working their asses off to keep these adorable dummies from disappearing off the face of the planet, and one of their innovations is dressing themselves up in panda suits when it comes time to introduce the real pandas into the wild. To, presumably, get those pandas raised in captivity used to being around other pandas, or something like that?

No idea if it’ll work–the last panda the Hetaoping researchers introduced into the wild, Continue reading AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! The People In The Panda Suits

ROCK OF ASIAN: Nisennenmondai

February 10th, 2010 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Look at these adorable ladies:

They are Nisennenmondai!

Aren’t they sweet? They’re Nisenenmondai (which apparently means “Year 2000 Problem,” remember that?), a veteran Japanese trio that has been playing a sick blend of lo-fi/wall-of-sound/punk/noise/distortion rock for a decade. The music is, all at once: cerebral, playful, aggressive, daunting, methodical, modern, mathematical, organic impulsive, deliberate, visceral and new. Hunh.

In short, Nissenmondai sounds (IMHO) like this:

Business Cat, Business Cat, What Are They Feeding You?

February 1st, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Diana

Dear Business Cat,

I know you’re an actor and all, but you seem to have a lot of chutzpah (not to mention specs and a necktie), so I’m just going to follow my gut here and ask you a quick question.

Do you have any administrative experience? See, Intern Jasmine is really overloaded (our bad) and she totally needs an assistant. All you would have to do is order her meals, file her taxes, make sure her car registration is paid, call her in for jury duty, check her business email, reply to her business email, spellcheck her tweets, pick up her dry cleaning, break up with guys she’s tired of, untag photos on Facebook that associate her with former friends, make reservations at her favorite restaurants, and… whatever other odds and ends you still have time for. You also have to read DISGRASIAN every day (and spellcheck my posts too, as I get carried away sometimes).

I’m going to be up front here. The pay isn’t great. But at DISGRASIAN HQ there are (in excess): warm windowsills, cardboard boxes, crinkled up pieces of paper, tuna juice, laps, carpet squares, string, yarn, twine, ribbon, very tall spots for sitting (or standing or planning a pounce), tiny stuffed mice, ping pong balls, little toys that roll and make Continue reading Business Cat, Business Cat, What Are They Feeding You?

Why We Hate Olivia Munn

December 15th, 2009 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana

She’s smart. She’s brash. She’s funny.

Her first name is adorable, her last succinct and easy to pronounce.

She has more Twitter followers than we do.

Her nose freckles are cuter than Diana’s nose freckles.

She has a blog too, but she never complains about it–and she isn’t getting a furrowed brow and grey hair like we are.

Oh…

AND SHE LOOKS…

ROPID: Cuter Than A Baby Prawn

November 6th, 2009 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana

Meet Ropid (Rapid + Robot), a new robot just unveiled by scientists in Japan that jumps, responds to directions…







…and is about 10,396,574 more adorable and fun to watch than your obnoxious little cousin with 1 year of ballet and 4 years of piano lessons under her belt, who your aunt dresses up in stupid party dresses every time there’s the teeniest, mundane family function going on–who she will HUSH AN ENTIRE ROOM FOR (sometimes even an NBA Playoff game) so that the little fucker can sing a song and dance it out, then follow with an encore presentasian of a plunked-out, shitty Sonatina on the piano.

10,396,574 more adorable and fun to watch than your cuz. And you can turn it off.
