Because Nothing Says “I Love You” Quite Like An Asian Baby

February 14th, 2011 | 2 comments | Posted by Jen

On this Valentine’s Day, we ponder the question: What’s the best way to say “I love you”?

With flowers?

Chocolate?

Diamonds?

Skywriting?

(Not microwaves, obviously.)

Fuck that! This is the real way you show your significant other you’re in it for the long haul:

Do you believe her?

I don’t buy it.  Here’s why:

File Under: Baby Docs We’ll Watch Over And Over Again Because They’re About Babies

November 30th, 2009 | 7 comments | Posted by Diana

If you haven’t heard, Focus Features will soon bring us Babies, a Thomas Balmès documentary that follows “four babies, in Mongolia, Namibia, San Francisco, and Tokyo, respectively, from birth to first steps.”





Quick question: Can you possibly watch this trailer without blurting out, “I want one in every color?”

More questions, actually: Is it, like, wrong to get totally baked and watch Babies, like watching Planet Earth while going munchy in couchlock? It’s not like the babies in the movie can see you. Or that you have to keep ‘em out of drawers or support their neck or anything.

Your Baby, Too, Can Look Like Obama’s Kin! [AMAZIAN JR. BABY PHOTO CONTEST]

October 2nd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

We couldn’t help but squeal this week when, while cyberstalking casually browsing through AP photos of the Obama and Ng families during vacation time in D.C., we discovered another picture show of little Savita!

How brainy families go on holiday

Imagine our delight when we realized that our Baby of the week spent the holiday rocking one of our favorite tiny clothes designers: Kumquat! (Perhaps you’ve noticed Giant Robot’s love for the baby brand, as well.)


You kinda have to look closely to see past the harness, but she’s definitely wearing the Organic Squirrel Tree collection (also pictured above, right):

Konrad Ng, Savita (in harness), President Obama, squirrels and stripes

So we got to thinking. Shouldn’t every baby deserve to look as cute as the President’s niece? Shouldn’t all children have an equal opportunity to adorn their munchkin legs with hip prints and soft, organic cotton? We sure think so.

That, friends, is why we’ve partnered up with Kumquat to bring you this week’s AMAZIAN JR. BABY PHOTO CONTEST!!! (We’re looking for cute photos of Asian and Asian-mix babies. We know that babies of all ethnicities are cute, but we happen to have an especial desire to collect photos of those munchkins with at least a drop of yellow in ‘em. Please understand!)

Here’s the lowdown.

  • Entrants must only submit photos of babies they know personally.
  • Entrants must only submit photos they own and have permission to share (Please don’t even bother trolling the web for photos of random cute Asian babies; we’ve already done it and will definitely recognize ‘em!).
  • Photos must be of tykes between the ages of 0 and 3.
  • Photos must be cute.
  • Please limit your submissions to 2 photos per baby, maximum 10 babies.
  • Submission cutoff is 11:59pm PST on Friday, October 9.
  • The winning photo will be selected by DISGRASIAN and Kumquat, and posted on Monday, October 12.
  • Contest winner will receive a $50 Gift Certificate for Kumquat! WOW!
  • Note that all babies, not just cute Asian babies, look cuter in Kumquat.

PLEASE SUBMIT ENTRY PHOTOS TO info@disgrasian.com.

GOOD LUCK!

BABYWATCH: Barack Obama And Niece Savita Ng In The World’s Most Adorable Hangout Sesh

September 29th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Not gonna lie–my womb does a little dance every time I lay eyes on a cuter-than-a-panda toddler, especially one with almond eyes, jet-black hair, chubby little hands and feet. This occurs especially when I gaze at a munchkin with a sweet name like “Savita Lola Yan-Song Ng,” whose giggly, tiny face is the product of genetics from two crushworthy, Babe-a-licious parents (we’ve had our eye on hot Mom and Dad for a long while, to be sure). And even more especially when that little ‘un is being tossed in their air by our cool-ass President:

The Prez and niece Savita. Warning: This photo may cause a diabetic coma.

Look at that little cardigan! The squealy laughter! Those pink cheeks!

Unfazed? Try to resist this (you can’t):

Tee hee!

Oh, if only this precious scene could last forever. My uterus is literally doing the freaking Roger Rabbit.

AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! The Japanese Toddler Who Survived Being Run Over By A Train

September 21st, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

A 15 month-old toddler who wandered onto train tracks outside of her home in Suzaka City, northwest of Tokyo, and had a oncoming train grind to a halt on top of her, has survived with only scratches for injuries.


HuffPo reported that the girl lived because she got trapped in a 50-centimeter gap between the train and the tracks.

“The train pushed her along the level crossing and dropped her into a pit between the rails,” Fuji Yoshida police spokesman Kenichi Nagata told PTI.

Props to the train driver for noticing the baby girl and applying the emergency brakes in time, too.

Introducing Naleigh, The Baby Who Might Make You Hate Katherine Heigl A Little Less

September 18th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Last week Katherine Heigl announced that she was adopting a special-needs baby from Korea, where Heigl’s older sister was also adopted. When I speculated that this might make Heigl less annoying-seeming, most of y’all were, like, “Hellz to the naw” and “Haaaaaaaaaaaaaate herrr.”

Heigl released photos Thursday of baby Naleigh (a nickname for Nancy Leigh, after Heigl’s mother Nancy and Heigl’s adopted sister Margaret “Meg” Leigh) on her foundation website. Can you look at these pics and honestly say you still hate her?


Yeah?

Damn, y’all are cold. Colder than us even!

Katherine Heigl to Become Less Annoying by Adopting a Korean Baby

September 10th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Somewhere on the road to becoming America’s next rom-com sweetheart, Katherine Heigl stumbled. Newsweek published a story in July trying to chart how that happened exactly, noting that the phrase “I Hate Katherine Heigl” generated twice as many results as “I Hate Tara Reid” (although Heigl is still safely behind “I Hate Gwyneth Paltrow,” which yields 52,400 results at present count).

Her first misstep? When she called Knocked Up, the work that made her a legit film star, “a little sexist,” a comment that continued to haunt her a year-and-a-half later when the movie’s director Judd Apatow and star Seth Rogen appeared on Howard Stern and mocked her for it, with Rogen adding that Heigl saying “batshit crazy things” was “kind of her bag now.” Then there was that whole Emmy nomination withdrawal kerfuffle, when she managed to look a gift horse in the mouth once again by insulting the entire writing staff of Grey’s Anatomy, who had made her a legit TV star.

The latest with Katherine Heigl is that she and her husband are adopting a special-needs baby from Korea. (Heigl’s older sister Meg was also adopted from Korea.) She broke the news first on Ellen, which will air this Friday.

So far, not even Perez Hilton–who was specifically cited in the Newsweek piece as having turned on Heigl–has had a bitchy thing to say about this. Is becoming a new mother what it’ll take to soften public opinion toward the 30 year-old actress?


All we know is that babies are a lot like crack. And Asian babies are kinda like rock that’s so addictive, it makes you forget you’re smoking crack in the first place–you’re just naturally euphoric and giddy and it’s totally normal that your windows are melting–like the stuff Whitney used to smoke that put her in hardcore denial, when she claimed that Whitney “don’t do crack” and “crack is wack.” And Asian babies make you forget, kinda the way crack does, that people suck and say stupid things and are chronically annoying, especially when they’re strapped to those same people in a cute Ecuadorian baby sling. Take a gander at aznbabyz.com if you don’t believe us, then imagine one of those little ones–with their chubby cheeks and sausage legs–attached to Katherine Heigl’s hip, and then try hatin’ on her. Pretty tough, right?

Thanks, uccloud9!

Cute Wars

July 9th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


A couple of years ago, my boyfriend and the cutest dog in the world (see above) were approached by his DISGRASIAN female neighbor, who had one burning question she wanted answered:

“Who’s cuter? Me? Or the dog?”

I don’t have a photo of this chick on me, but let me tell you. I’m not convinced she would’ve won this competition with a cactus (ZING!). The answer, which she didn’t like, was a stunned: “THE DOG.”

Point is, humans can’t really contend with the cuteness of animals. It just doesn’t work. We don’t have the huggy softness of pandas. We don’t have sad, round, kitten eyes. We don’t employ a tiny frolic like the baby pudu deer. We don’t have wet, little, puppy noses.

Few people have a shot against a cute animal. And I will argue that when it comes down to it, we’ve really only got one secret weapon against our animal kingdom pals: the Asian baby.

“Pandas, you don’t have a prayer.”

My GOD, our babies are so damn cute that their cuteness could melt glaciers.

So if a teeny-tiny Asian baby dukes it out with a tabby cat (like in this photo competition we just discovered via Buzzfeed)…


…we honestly don’t know who has the upper hand. Probably the kid. Probably.
