ROCK OF ASIAN: Silversun Pickups

February 3rd, 2010 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Okay, so the Silversun Pickups were nominated for a Grammy (in the category of Best New Artist, which ultimately went to the Zac Brown Band) and didn’t win. That kinda sucks, unless you believe in the “Best New Artist Curse,” in which case you may have been rooting against these adorable kids the whole time.

If anything, watching the Pickups attend their first big awards show (see video of their red carpet entrance below) served up a good lesson–albeit a hard lesson–in “winning isn’t everything.”

Congratulasians To Efren Peñaflorida, 2009 CNN Hero Of The Year!

November 23rd, 2009 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana

The people have spoken, and what they have said is that our man Efren Peñaflorida, with his pushcart school, is a hero among heroes. Try not to cry during his acceptance speech:

Perhaps we could all learn something from his tireless efforts and pushcart lessons. Peñaflorida said:

“Our planet is filled with heroes, young and old, rich and poor, man, woman of different colors, shapes and sizes. We are one great tapestry. Each person has a hidden hero within, you just have to look inside you and search it in your heart, and be the hero to the next one in need.”

And right now, from behind our walls of daily snark and selfishness and shame, we kinda believe him.

She’s Getting Bai

January 12th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Not sure what perplexes me more:

Red-y to Wear

A) Bai Ling was invited to a legitimate Golden Globes after-party.

B) Bai Ling was not nude at said legitimate Golden Globes after-party.

C) Bai Ling’s peace sign actually looks spirited and, well, peaceful.

D) I truly have nothing mean to say about Bai Ling after looking at the above photograph. Nothing mean at all. NOTHING MEAN WHATSOEVER.

This series of conundrums obviously leads me to believe that the world is coming to an end. Take cover, guys!

Rock the HanbOhk

I’m sure Sandra Oh will get some shit today for wearing this dress to the SAG awards last night:

But here are reasons why I like it. It was not chosen for her by a stylist like my cunty next-door neighbor, it does not scream Spring-Trend-as-Decreed-by-Vogue (color! metallics! lace! trains!), it was designed by Kim Mee Hee, an L.A. designer based in K-town who makes traditional hanboks and bed linens, it’s actually a riff on a hanbok, thus showing Oh’s personal style, a quality that is nearly dead in Hollywood.

Come On Baby Light My Fire

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

Is it just because I live in Los Angeles that the phrase “Awards Season” has become common parlance? Are people in Iowa talking like this, and by “this,” I mean, like douchebags?

“Awards Season” 2007 has come and gone in predictable fashion: the Golden Globes were a joke, the Oscars were a bore–and a fashism blackhole–and I still don’t REALLY get the difference between the Independent Spirit Awards and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, except that one statuette is bird-shaped, the other is a thespian, and both are butt-ugly.

That said, the Taurus World Stunt Awards show–hosted by our half-Asian homey Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson–just took place in L.A. and it looked awesome.

Très cool party trick! Is there a way to try this at home without killing myself?
