BABEWATCH: TED Fellow And Embrace Co-Founder Jane Chen

September 28th, 2010 | 1 comment | Posted by Jen

Name: Jane Chen

Occupation: Co-founder of Embrace, a non-profit that makes a low-cost, life-saving infant warmer, and TEDIndia Fellow

Why She’s a Babe: Jane Chen is a good-looking do-gooder. Not only is she a babe, but she’s helping to save the life of babes in the traditional sense of the word with the Embrace Infant Warmer, which looks like a mini-sleeping bag and can perform the role of an incubator for babies born prematurely at less than 1% of the cost of a traditional incubator–$25 versus upwards of $20,000. Chen and her team of Amazians plan on piloting the Infant Warmer in India before introducing it to other developing countries. And anyone saving babies–a bit of an obsession of ours, we’ll admit–is beautiful in our book.

Watch Jane’s TEDTalk in which she explains how the infant warmer works:

Jon & Kate–Still Doing Gr8?

April 30th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

It’s getting increasingly difficult to defend Jon Gosselin: the pudgy, frustratingly meek father from Jon & Kate Plus 8. Our position hasn’t changed dramatically–we’re not suddenly saying he’s a bad guy.


But he himself has stated that he exercises bad–well, “poor”–judgment sometimes.

Y’know, the kind of poor judgment that causes a man to ignore the fact that he’s a relatively famous reality TV dad, and get piss-drunk at a bar while surrounded by phone cameras and college co-eds? Or, most recently, inspires that very same man to voyage out (while his wife is in another state promoting her book) to a different bar–this time with a female friend he refers to loudly to as “babe,” bail from the watering hole at last call, panic at the sight of photographers and their mean ol’ lenses as they snap away, and have the “babe” speed off in his SUV, him riding shotgun, without so much as turning the headlights on?

Poor judgment, indeed. We’ve gotta say, we don’t know for sure what shenanigans Mr. Gosselin is up to in his free time away from Capt. Wifey. But we do know that this guy makes a lot of mistakes.

And Asians hate few things more than a bunch of fuckin’ stupid mistakes.

SPORTS ILLUSTRASIAN: Lost in Translasian

Million Dollar Babes: Dinesh Patel and Rinku Singh

Uh-oh! Somebody’s jock is in a twist, and it’s all our fault. Two weeks ago, we made Rinku Singh, winner of The Million Dollar Arm contest and one of two Indian pitchers recently signed to the Pittsburgh Pirates, our “babe” of the week. Apparently, Rinku saw this and thought we were accusing him of being a perv (from his blog on themilliondollararm.com):

One very, very bad thing about the news is that they say I on the BABEWATCH (http://disgrasian.blogspot.com/2008/11/babewatch-rinku-singh.html). this not true. i not watching girls. i only pitching, training, eat, watch baseball/Movies and sleep. American women very dangerous and very crazy. I like only Indian woman. Dinesh and JB, Sir have been harrassing me about this BABEWATCH. I do not like the BABEWATCH.

Since I can’t leave a comment on his blog, I have to clear the air here.

Rinku. Duuude. First of all, sorry. Second, chillax. We meant this only as a compliment, and it may be the nicest thing you hear said about yourself in the near future since baseball fans are notoriously vicious. In America, the word “babe” can be applied to both women and men. (Don’t bother looking this up in a dictionary; dictionaries don’t teach you anything about slang.) In this case, you are the “babe.” And we are “watching” you. Once a week, we like to feature certain people on our blog simply because they are nice to look at. I guess that makes us the pervs!

But, hey, at least you understand one very important thing about your new home–American women are dangerous and crazazy! Remember that when those groupies come to watch you pitch and ask to, like, stroke your bat and shit.

Thanks, Mark!

BABEWATCH: Sunita Williams

September 30th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Sunita Williams (née Pandya)

Age: 43

Occupation: NASA’s Deputy Chief of the Astronaut Office

Why She’s a Babe: It’s no secret that we have a thing for astronauts. But even among people who have the Right Stuff, Sunita is exceptional. She holds the record for the longest spaceflight for a woman, at 195 days. She ran the 2007 Boston Marathon–in space, in four hours and 24 minutes. Then she ran it again, on earth, in 2008. And for a Naval officer and total badass, Sunita has really sweet, endearing qualities. Like how she brought samosas with her on her 6-month space odyssey. Or how she got her long hair cut on that mission to donate to Locks of Love. On top of all that, she’s a rabid Red Sox fan…so, yeah, she’s basically our idea of a perfect woman.

BABEWATCH: Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng

August 5th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


Name: Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng

Occupation: Teacher

Why She’s a Babe: Because Barack Obama’s half-Indonesian half-sister–whom Barack described as “looking like a Latin countess with her olive skin and long black hair and black bridesmaid’s gown” at his wedding, in Dreams from My Father–is the definition of regal. And she knows how to rock a power suit. She’s married to Canadiasian Konrad Ng and has a Ph.D in Education, and, no, we’re not talking a Player Hater Degree, obviously. Speaking of Players, did we mention that she’s Barack Obama’s sister and she’s out there reprzentin’ for her big bro? And helping out family–that’s hot.

You Tell Us (POLL!)

July 8th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


Ever since I wrote last week about So You Think You Can Dance‘s Mark Kanemura (pictured above with his dancing partner Chelsie Hightower), I’ve noticed a lot of people have been visiting DISGRASIAN to find out Mark’s orientasian. I have my own thoughts on the matter, but they’re completely unreliable, since I think everyone’s gay and want to be their #1 fag hag. So you tell us–is Mark Kanemura straight, gay, or stray?


  I think Mark Kanemura is…

straight

gay

stray (straight but seems gay)

BABEWATCH: Alexa Chung

June 17th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


Name: Alexa Chung

Hails from: England

Occupation: BrIt Girl and TV host

Why She’s a Babe: Normally, we don’t go in for girls who are more famous for what they wear than who they are, but there’s something effortlessly cool and likable about the 24 year-old Chung, who is 3/8 Chinese (Dad is 3/4 and, yes, we had to get out the calculator to come up with that one). Plus, she has a grunge-y gamine style that sets her apart from most celebutards and lands her in every UK magazine. And when Chung was a host on Popworld, a British pop culture, news, and music video show, we love how she put off a few of her famous guests with her breezy irreverence, as she did with the humorless lead singer of Panic! At the Disco or with Gwen Stefani, when she asked what Gwen’s new poop-fume will smell like:

BABEWATCH: Anthony Kim

May 6th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Anthony Kim

Hails from: California

Occupation: Professional golfer

Why He’s a Babe: First off, have you ogled those crazy-ripped arms of his? Can golf really make you look that good? Also, after winning the Wachovia Championship this past weekend, making Kim the youngest player to win a PGA tourney in 6 years, the 22 year-old golfer has been heralded as “the next big swing” and a possible rival to golf’s untouchablasian, Tiger Woods. And even though we know shiznit about golf, we think that’s hot.

BABEWATCH: Nicole Joy Tan

April 29th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


Name: Nicole Joy Tan

Hails from: Australia by way of Singapore

Occupation: Actor

Why She’s a Babe: We hate to repeat ourselves, but we’re suckers for a cute Asian chick who can rock those bangs. And not only does Nicole have great hair, she also has great skin, sunkissed the color of a hot beach bunny (to which the above pic does not do justice). And she plays “Bec,” one of the bitchy popular girls, in our latest obsession, Summer Heights High, a hilarious, 8-episode, Australian comedy that our friend Nathan turned us on to.

HBO recently bought the rights to this Office-set-in-high-school series, in which creator Chris Lilley plays the three lead characters–so look out for it in June! If you can’t wait that long, buy the DVD here.

BABEWATCH: Fatima Bhutto

April 1st, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen


Name: Fatima Bhutto

Occupation: Writer and poet

Hails from: Pakistan

Why She’s a Babe: Because the 25 year-old, Columbia University grad was born into one of Pakistan’s most powerful and conflicted political dynasties (father Murtaza and aunt Benazir–the former Prime Minister–were both assassinated) but has managed to make her own way in the world as a journalist and author of two books. And while Bhutto wants to stay out of politics for now, she remains outspoken about her country, saying in a recent interview, “It has to stop being this autocratic, dynastic environment… When that day comes and this happens…if there’s a way for me to serve this country, then I would be proud to.”
