AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! Kosik, The Talking Elephant

October 18th, 2010 | 2 comments | Posted by Diana

Name: Kosik

Hails from: Gyeonggi-do Province, South Korea

Occupation: Elephant at Everland Theme Park

Known for: His ability to “speak” human words (it is unclear whether or not he can fly when holding a feather). CBS recently reported that Kosik, a captive elephant at Everland Theme Park, has developed the ability to speak seven words in Korean (which is three more words than I can say, if you don’t count food). He is the only known living elephant to do so, and even though it’s unlikely he can understand what he’s saying, scientists are dazzled by his ever-improving pronunciasian.

Watch:

Foulmouth Strikes Again

June 11th, 2010 | 3 comments | Posted by Diana

Angry Asian Man posted this fabulous instructional video, which is part of a series that aids grownup Korean speakers in pronouncing the more, er,  important words of the English language: the bad ones!





Nothing warms my heart more than hearing a Hardass Asian Grownup drop an f-bomb or call someone “you fucking bitch”–or reach my father’s apex of frustration: “Oh, shit” (it only happens when he makes an anomolous mistake, like losing his keys).

And so my only hope is that more Koreans will immerse themselves into this line of study. And that such tutorials will soon be created for ma peeps the Vietnamese, Jen’s peeps the Chinese, and all of y’alls peeps as well!

I also see this tutorial as a bit of a backdoor guide to reading DISGRASIAN, properly prepping little old ladies using umbrellas as parasols and friends from our parents’ singing groups to join us in a dialogue about fucking burritos and declaring the world’s biggest asshole–and, if we’re lucky, helping us cut a few fuckers’ dicks off. That’s the fucking shit!

It’s a generasian bridge, so to speak. And a damn fine one at that.

The World Loves A Sausage Party

February 22nd, 2010 | 3 comments | Posted by Diana

The only downside I can see to the growing South Korean trend of using a snack sausage as a substitute fingertip during the cold months of winter (which we read about on HuffPo)…

"Brrrrr... so cold... but... need... to play... Doodle Jump!"



…is that you can’t eat the sausage while you’re using it as a finger!

Lawd knows, sometimes a girl just wants to eat the sausage.

Conundrums!

ROCK OF ASIAN: Pumashock

October 7th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


Our friend Joyce recently introduced us to the vocal stylings of her girl, Pumashock (aka Natalie White), and we’re becoming a bit obsessed.

Cuz here’s the thing. Ms. White has got a voice like butter, million-dollar smile, freaking gorgeous face, swimsuit model body, longstanding devotion to video games (photo above is an homage–can you place it?), deeeeeep affinity for Korean dramas and K-pop… and seems like an all-around, super fun, super nice chick. Are all of these sweet-ass qualities together in one pretty package a common find? Hell no. Is Pumashock, then basically DISGRASIAN’s wet dream? Oh, yes.

Witness, for instance, this near-perfect interpretation of the Wonder Girls “Nobody” (Like, WOW):

And if you think that accent is just a fluke, check out her synthed up interpretasian of Lee Hyori’s “U Go Girl” (Also, like, WOW):

There’s something about her silky, smooth delivery, cheeky winks, and sweet, inviting smile that is ever-so seductive and, well, surprisingly perfect. Sometimes, it’s damn nice to be shocked.

Jose Canseco vs. Hong Man Choi: At 76 Seconds, It Lasted Longer Than We Expected

May 27th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


Jose Canseco fought 330-lb., 7’2″, Korean kickboxer Hong Man Choi in his first Mixed Martial Arts fight, yesterday in Tokyo. Frankly, we thought it went pretty well! See for yourself:

Seriously–damn, dude. If we were Canseco, we’d have spent that minute-plus running around the ring like a scared little girl, too.
