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

We’re having trouble deciding who’s cuter in this photo: John Cho or his Amazian Jr. son?

Asian people love small animals.

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.

It’s taken awhile for us to get moving again after four days of turkey-stuffing-mashed potatoes-stuffing-nap-US Weekly Magazine-stuffing-red wine-turkey-pizza-Rock Band-stuffing-gravy-dog park-cookies-pie-ice cream-Contemporary Adult Fiction-mashed potatoes-white wine-aunts’n'uncles-brunch-scotch-Star Magazine-Facebook-gravy-tequila-cashmere throw blankets-stuffing-PayPerView movies-gratitude-turkey.

Fortunately, our pen pal Margie kicked off the morning with a photo of exactly how Jen and I are looking at DISGRASIAN HQ today:

I mean, we could look worse.

What a Wonderful Takei-sian!

September 15th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

If these aren’t the cutest wedding photos we’ve ever seen, we’re not sure what are! Many, many, many congratulasians go out to George Takei and his handsome hubby Brad Altman on their recent nuptials! We foresee a future of lots and lots of super-duper happy years spent together in domestic bliss (although, speaking from personal experience, we must insert the caveat that sometimes domestic life is just “super” and not always so “duper”).

Anyway… where should we send presents? More importantly, is there any cake left? We’re starving.

Yawning Pandasian

September 5th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

If this photo of one-month-old panda cub A Bao yawning is enough to turn my vegetarian, dog-fostering, PETA-member friend into a gushing and rabid freak–one that declares, “I want to keep him in a jar! Where he will yawn all day long! In my jar!”–who’s to blame for the downhill spiral? The too-fricking-cute panda or my friend?

I blame the panda. You can’t yawn like that and expect to be left alone.

Thanks, Eliza!

Beatie Baby

July 23rd, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

No longer-Pregnant Man Thomas Beatie and his newborn daughter, Susan Juliette, released their first photos to the public via People Magazine this week. Look at that precious young thing! Her sweet little face is actually so angelic that it has totally helped us forget all of the crazy “eek!” tingles we got watching a pregnant man talk on Oprah.

More details from People:

Susan – named after Thomas’s mother and conceived through artificial insemination with donor sperm – arrived after 40 hours of labor, with Nancy at Thomas’s side acting as his coach.

…Both father and daughter came through the birth in perfect health. “I weigh two pounds less than I did before I got pregnant,” adds Thomas. “And I don’t have a single stretch mark!

Wait, let’s back up.

40 hours of labor?!? Formerly pregnant men talking about stretch marks?? Consider us tingly again.

The Beatles are big on my mom’s side of the family. I have one uncle who definitely believes he is the Vietnamese incarnation of John Lennon, who named his first daughter Michelle about ten years before she was born, and rocks out tracks from Rubber Soul on an electric piano every time we get together for holidays. He’s got both a son and daughter, both of whom are pretty weird and rad, but noticeably not musically inclined (or Beatlemaniacs for that matter).

I try not to bring that little factoid up, because unlike most of my relatives I think he’s actually a little disappointed that his kids will probably end up in medical school instead of playing the guitar too high up on their chests on top of the Capitol Records building. And I am DEFINITELY not going to send him this video…

…of a ridiculously cutey cute cuterson Amazian Jr. who isn’t even out of diapers but can rattle off a baby version of “Hey Jude” faster than you can say “Hokey Pokey.” I swear, if anyone sends this to my uncle, he’ll try to return his kids for a refund. So don’t!

Thanks, Pete!

There Ain’t Nothin’ Wang With A Little Pterodactyl

February 13th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

I did not think that it was possible to find anything cuter than the above teeny, tiny, toothless pterodactyl fossil, which was recently discovered in China by a team led by Xiaolin Wang of the Chinese Academy of Science.

That is… until I saw…

…the teeny, tiny, toothless pterodactyl fossil posing in a teeny, tiny tree.
