ROPID: Cuter Than A Baby Prawn

November 6th, 2009 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana

Meet Ropid (Rapid + Robot), a new robot just unveiled by scientists in Japan that jumps, responds to directions…







…and is about 10,396,574 more adorable and fun to watch than your obnoxious little cousin with 1 year of ballet and 4 years of piano lessons under her belt, who your aunt dresses up in stupid party dresses every time there’s the teeniest, mundane family function going on–who she will HUSH AN ENTIRE ROOM FOR (sometimes even an NBA Playoff game) so that the little fucker can sing a song and dance it out, then follow with an encore presentasian of a plunked-out, shitty Sonatina on the piano.

10,396,574 more adorable and fun to watch than your cuz. And you can turn it off.

ROCK OF ASIAN: Good Asian Drivers

September 24th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


The photo really does say it all, doesn’t it? Good Asian Drivers are a silly, funny, adorably angry band that combines folk guitar with spoken word poetry and ballsy, ticklish lyrics (we’re suckers for “fuck” and “dildo”). They’re out to break stereotypes and rock out–not terrible goals.

Basically, they’re cute and fun, and we want to challenge them to Slayer on Guitar Hero.

See more of these wacky Bostonians here.

Hey Pax Thien Jolie-Pitt,

Dude, high-five from your Vietnamese sister. What’s up, little man? You’re so cute. You’re so friggin’ cute. I’m so glad you’re not stuck in an orphanage in our homeland eating old rice with your fingers while wearing sandals made out of tires, peddling aluminum coke can helicopters to Isreali tourists. That would suck! Instead, you have scored in life, big time. You have an angelic face, you have bitchin’ hair, you still fit in little pants, and you have parents that will probably let you go out on Fridays and date before you’re 29 (bangs head on desk).

One thing: I’ve noticed over the last year or so, that since your supernatural adoption, you haven’t spent a lot of time on foot. I’ve been meaning to write you about this for months, but hesitated because I thought maybe you had a thing, a condition perhaps, some sort of foot measles or toenail infection or broken knees or something, and god, how awful would that be for me to bring up your “condition” on a public forum like DISGRASIAN? EEEK! I didn’t want to do it, no way. “Can Pax walk?” I only asked myself, because I was too scared that you couldn’t and that someone would think I was a total asshole for asking.

But then I remembered that Jen, my writing partner and pal, doesn’t judge. So I asked her if you could walk and she said yes, he actually went skiing last weekend! So then was like, fer sure that you could walk. PHEW! But just to get really really fer sure, I then found some pictures of you jumping alongside your mom (Side note: Where does she buy all of her flats? Are they all Lanvin?) so I think it’s all pretty much confirmed. You’ve got two feet, and you can get around on ‘em just fine. Sweet.

So just one thing. Not to be your Hardass Asian kinda-sorta-related-only-by-ethnicity sister, but shit, you’re no spring chicken, kid. I think it’s time to get to steppin’, if you know what I mean. And what I mean is, YOU’RE TOO OLD TO BE CARRIED.

I get it, you’re roaming all around town, you get tired, you’re a little guy, blah blah blah. But I have a solution for that. Maybe what you need is a pair of those shoes with the rolly wheels!

I gotta say, these things are pretty cool. They freak me out a little, but that’s just jealousy talking.

So in conclusion, I think you and your family seem pretty happy, but I definitely think that if your lithe mama has to tote your tush any longer, homegirl is gonna exhaust herself like an anorexic marathon runner. Feel free to call me with any questions.

Talk soon! xoxoxoxoxo

You’ve Gotta Fight! For Your Right! To Scrabulous!

January 17th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

We can’t believe the gall of Hasbro for trying to crash the party on the Scrabulous, a Facebook Applicasian invented by our Amazian of the Week heroes Jayant and Rajat Agarwalla (pictured above).

Having realized all too late that Scrabulous is, as we mentioned months ago, the funnest damn thing online since cyberscrewing, Hasbro apparently wants to make sure no one else is cashing in on their caché–they want Scrabulous’s ass shut down. Hasbro is THE MAN.

We can only scoff at this stupidity–we’re witnessing the panic mode that sets in when an archaic corporasian doesn’t have the balls or vision to rise with technology. But sledgehammering people’s free, online joy does not pave the pathway to success… haven’t any of us learned from the ghost town of the music industry? If not, uh… we have a few thousand unemployed record executives wearing “Fuck Napster” shirts for you to talk to.

Fellow readers, let’s not take this sitting down! Join us in protesting this nonsense, and keep those delicate Facebook friendships (likely held together ever-so-precariously by the common thread of Scrabulous fun) alive! Sign the “Save Scrabulous” online petition here.

(Speaking of Facebook, if you haven’t joined us in Facebook’s DISGRASIAN NATION, we’re missing you. Come on in!)
