And You Thought Today Was Bad

April 8th, 2011 | 1 comment | Posted by Diana

I once had a coworker that never actually read any books. She did, however, always read the NYT book review section before all social engagements, so that she’d be prepared to converse semi-knowledgeably about the newly released texts creating conversation among reader folks (aka pathologically pretended to be reader folk). I’ve always found this trick to be pretty abhorrent–HOWEVER, we all have our bad days. So I’m gonna hop on the hypocrisy train for just a minute!

Soooooooooo… I haven’t actually read physicist/string field theorist Michio Kaku‘s book, Physics of the Future, which pulls together conclusions about what the world will be like in a century based on interviews with 300 of the world’s top scientists. And maybe that’s a good thing, since NYT’s Dwight Garner found all that science talk to be “dull” and “charmless.” (<– See how I did that there? You’d like, never even know!) I did, however, read Kaku’s essay about 10 of his most fascinating conclusions, which was originally published in the NY Post.

Here are the headlines, via excerpt: Continue reading And You Thought Today Was Bad

ROCK OF ASIAN: New Album From The Slants!

November 18th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

We’ve got a lot of love for Portland’s The Slants, a synth-rawk outfit whose dark dance anthems (for reference: check their record Slanted Eyes, Slanted Hearts) trumped The Faint and The Killers in our party playlists loooooong ago.

The Slants: Remixmasters

But they must have known: deep inside, the people even more jiggy energy in them, just waiting to be tapped. The band just released Slants! Slants! Revolution—an album of their tunes, remixed for even more lively party people than us (or funkier partays than ours). Think about rolling with all of your gaysians to da club on Fridays, or rolling large on Hollywood Boulevard after a Depeche Mode concert, or tripping out in baggy jeans in the desert with all of your, ehrm, closest friends–this would be the perfect soundtrack.

B Here For Ur Peeps

October 24th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Did you know that 1 in 10 Asian Americans suffer from hepatitis B? Probably not, which is why B Here is here.


B Here, as you’ve hopefully heard, is a new campaign designed to raise awareness of hepatitis B, a life-threatening liver disease that affects up to 2 million people in the U.S. – many of whom are Asian Americans. Eek factor: 10% of infected people can develop chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis or hardening of the liver, or liver cancer. Not cool.

We would like to kick diseases that affect our peeps in the shins.

Join us in the effort! B Here is currently hosting a university tour that makes one more stop next week, with two performances at UC Davis on Tuesday, October 27 and Wednesday, October 28. If you’re in the area, pack them seats! It’s practically a parade of our favorite musicmakers, rumpshakers and funnypeople–from KevJumba (♥) to Kaba Modern to David Choi (The lineup’s so good you almost forget you’re learning about something!).

Can’t go? Well, there are lots of different ways for you to spread the word. Help the peeps out.
