Diana, You Got Served

March 10th, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Jen

A really effin’ weird Korean dude has taken Diana’s idea of pillow-humping and done one better by marrying his. The bride is Fate Testarossa from the anime series Maho Shojo Ririkaru Nanoha. Fortunately, the pillow wasn’t a male character, because I hear there are laws against that.

I have so many questions about what horrible turns life has taken for one to get to this point, but mostly what I want to know is…

For the Poseur in You

Y’all, we read about this new website Asian Poses over at 8 Asians this week, and it has not stopped cracking our shit up.

Asian Poses is basically an online compendium of all the weird poses our peeps use in photographs, with explanations of origin here and there.

I just hope the site remembers to catalog this Asian Pose at some point, too:

This is one of those days I wish I spoke Japanese:

Please… Somebody. Anybody. Tell me what’s going on here. Or here.

Because whatever it is, I am totally into.

Thanks, Ru!

Japan’s Ambassadors of CuteZZzzzZZZzz

March 13th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

In an effort to raise its cultural profile in the world, Japan has named three young women ambassadors of “cute.”

The three women represent archetypes borrowed from anime, manga, and street culture: a schoolgirl, a Lolita, and a girl described as a “fashion leader” in the Harajuku district. (Oh how I long to rip that crazy weave off the Harajuku chick and throw it to a feral cat.) At a press conference announcing their appointment Thursday, Tsutomu Nakagawa, the head of the cultural affairs division at the Foreign Ministry, explained the purpose of these so-called ambassadors:

We want people abroad to know these kind of people exist in Japan and to feel close to them.

Okay, but who at this point doesn’t know that “these kind of people” exist in Japan?

  1. People who live under rocks.
  2. People who live in caves.
  3. People who have never heard of the internet.
  4. People who have never heard of television.
  5. People without a pervy boner in their body (yeah, right).

And, more to the point, how many in the world actually think that only “these kind of people” exist in Japan?

Thanks, Lory!

Casting A Wide Yet Narrow Net

October 21st, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Intern Jasmine, always supporting my future big break on the big screen, just sent me a notice for a part in a movie!

Imagine my dismay when I realized that the audition call date had passed–because I AM between the ages of TWENTY AND SEVENTY (aren’t most of us?).

Sadly, though, I’m not fluent in Nepalese or Tibetan.

Well, I’m fluent. Just not fluent-fluent.


Thanks, Jasmine!

When In Bloat, Try Animasian

March 11th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

The Sun reports that Britney Spears’s new video, for a track nobody cares about her song, “Break the Ice,” will debut next month. Here’s the exciting part: the former pop princess will be depicted in zzZzZzANIMEzzZzZz (see above).

Don’t be fooled, everybody. The cartoon fantasy character may have real/long/luscious locks, a tiny waist, and perfectly perky breasts… but we’re pretty sure it’s still certifiably nutbars.

Toilet Trasian

December 20th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

My race car-driving friend Pete sent me this video today:

…and it got me wondering how my parents succeeded in potty-training little ol’ me. Did they blink their cute anime eyes and wave their chubby little hands side to side while singing “wee wee, piss piss?” Sounds way too nice, too hippy-like, and I hate hippies, so I can’t imagine I learned how to pee like one.

I gave my sister Phuong a call and she explained that my mom’s method was… sit me down, make a whooshing sound, and boom! Instant potty training at age one. That’s it? For serious? What she neglected to mention, that I am pretty convinced actually happened, was my mother’s gentle raise of eyebrow accompanied by a stern but delicate whisper: “Your cousin learned how to do this a month ago.”

Oh, how times have changed.

Thanks, Pete!

Another Lame Movie Adaptasian

March 21st, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Actor Emile Hirsch is “in talks,” according to Reuters, to star in a live-action, adaptation of SPEED RACER, which will be directed by the Wachowski brothers.

I never really was a fan. I didn’t get it. This guy solved crimes or something with a race car–HUH? Also, wasn’t this a Japanese series, so why did the lead character have big blue eyes?

In hindsight, I have come to believe that…Speed Racer’s gay. His eyelashes are so darn pretty and long, they suggest secret (and frequent) mascara usage. And he and the Crime-Solving Car are always so clean and shiny, a clear sign of excessive grooming. Plus, what’s up with the jaunty red kerchief? GAY GAY GAY, or, at the very least…Clean-Freak Cross-Dresser.

Oh wait, maybe this is why the Wachowski brothers want to do this movie. Well, one of them, anyway.
