For all of you unlucky bastards who have to fly this Thanksgiving, here are a few tips to make your travel less painful:
- The new full-body scanners are safe, according to experts.
- If you opt out of the full-body scan, you will be subjected to an “enhanced” pat-down procedure.
- Every TSA officer has received 8 to 12 hours of training on the enhanced pat-down.
- If PDA freaks you out, you can choose to have the enhanced pat-down in private.
- Snow globes are not allowed on the plane.
- You can download David Choi’s “Please Don’t Touch My Junk” for free to listen to while you’re stuck in that horrible, junk-touching airport security line:

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.
We basically love everything about the Hong Kong-born, California-raised Jane Lui. There’s that sweet, naturally pretty face of hers, coupled with her skinny frame and goofy-adorable aesthetic. And there’s her very familiar immigrant story and too-cute happy energy. But above all things, we love the strong, smoky, sensual voice that emanates from somewhere within the tiny person: a power tool that comes unexpectedly from its host.
Since discovering Lui’s greatness, we’ ve combed through her official site, stalked her on MySpace and Facebook, followed her on Twitter, and subscribed to her YouTube channel–uh, call us superfans (or creeps). What we really can’t seem to get enough of, though, is this collaboration with YouTube star SingingDork888, a cover of The Turtles’ classic “Happy Together” that gives us all kind of sweetheart tingles:
It makes us sigh, like black-and-white pictures of our parents when they were skinny, young, and smiling.
SoCal residents, catch some live Jane Lui action with DISGRASIAN favorites Kina Grannis and David Choi this month (May 14th at 6pm) at the UC Riverside campus Bell Tower. We’re gonna try and be cool in the back, but it’ll be hard.
There is something so appealing about producer/singer/songwriter/Internet phenom David Choi, even if you’re not typically the type to body-rock to soft country beats, swoon to a gentle harmonica lick, or sit around a campfire hanging on to every last tongue teaser of a gentle man’s sentimental-albeit-sensual, soft lyric (à la John Mayer, Jack Johnson, et al.).
There is a universal quality to Choi’s warm, lovey appeals, yet his distinctly smoky voice and occasional dabbles in twinkly amusement, along with his adorably forlorn mug, yank him edgewise of the smarmy pack.
Oh, we know what you’re thinking: What’s up, Johnnys-come-lately? I’ve been down with Sir Choi since ’04, yo! He’s won a zillion contests! He’s covered your favorite Britney song! We know, we know. Our friend Slanty tipped us off to his genius late last year, and reader Bobby sent us a note this week reminding us that we’ve slacked on showcasing the guy.
But you know, it’s never too late. And since it’s been raining for three days in LA–casting a luxuriously stormy gloom over the city that’s just perfect for staying in, gazing out the window, and melting into acousta-ballads–what better time to talk about a Choi than now?
Melt with us here.
