Obama Bow Japan

To the angry, inflammatory, right-wing pundits (like Michelle Malkin and Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh), and all of the folks that are losing sleep over the fact that President Obama (gasp!) bowed while shaking the hand of Japanese Emperor Akihito…

…there’s a fascinating new concept we’d like to introduce to you called “SHOWING RESPECT.”

Jason Wu Puts Fur Collection in Cold Storage

February 4th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

After announcing only a few weeks ago that he was designing a “significant fur collection,” Jason Wu, who created Michelle Obama’s inauguration ball dress, is now saying that the line is on hold fur now while he focuses on ready-to-wear, i.e. Sorta-Real People Clothes.


TRANSLASIAN: Global warming is real! Luxury is out! And I really don’t want a tofu pie in my cute little face!

Glad you finally took stock of the world around you, kid.

Jason Wu Is Fur-real Real

January 23rd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Jason Wu, the 26 year-old designer who created Michelle Obama’s inauguration ball gown, told the Fashion Week Daily last week that he is currently working on a “significant fur collection, and the message will be all about luxury.”

Honey, have you picked up a newspaper lately? (Of course you haven’t. They’re all going out of business.) But haven’t you heard of those pesky little nuisances called “global warming” and “the global financial crisis” that are signaling the end of the world as we know it?

Listen. I love a fur as much as the next animal-murderer. But since you’re suddenly all that, you might want to think before you blab to the press. And though people say wackjob animal activism is on the wane, I would hate for you to get a tofu pie to that sweet, sweet face of yours.

Seems Rather Inconvenient

Great news!!! Reuters reports:

Hong Kong’s winters could vanish within 50 years, with the number of cold days declining virtually to zero due to global warming and urbanization, the head of the city’s weather observatory warned on Friday…

Over the past century, temperatures in Hong Kong rose around 1.2 degrees, almost double the global average, said Lam, who warned that the city’s winters might actually vanish half a century earlier if Hong Kong’s rapid urbanization trends were taken into account.

‘We would really start losing the very distinct seasonal march throughout the year … We would really look more tropical than we (are) now,’ Lam told reporters.

The number of summer ‘hot-nights’ in Hong Kong, with temperatures above 28 degrees Celsius, has already jumped to 30 a year — an almost four-fold increase from the 1990s, said Lam, as heat trapped during the day by the concrete city and its teeming skyscrapers is unable to dissipate fully at night.

Lam attributed Hong Kong’s forecast temperature rise of three to four degrees by the end of the century to urbanization and global warming in equal measure.”


Ruh-roh. Check that, I meant “Bad News.”
