DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! The ‘Asianate Yourself’ Facebook App

March 11th, 2011 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

So, there’s this Facebook app called “Asianate Yourself,” where you can make yourself Asian, which some people find offensive, especially since the app was created by a Hong Kong-based soy sauce company that should know better, but as people who came into this world already “Asianated,” can we just say that we totally get it?

I mean, if people wanna be us, I can’t blame them. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em, right?

That said, the Asianate app sucks balls. For one thing, there’s nothing “Urban Asian” about sumo. Actually I have to admit that I don’t even know what “Urban Asian” means. Is that, like, as opposed to “Jungle Asian,” like Diana (yes, I know this is a slur but Diana’s owning it so maybe you should too)? Or is “Urban” the roundabout way of saying “Morbidly Obese” when applied to Asians, the way it’s the roundabout way of saying “Black” when applied to African-Americans?

And that’s the other thing. Why would you Asianate yourself right into Body Dysmorphic Disorder? Asianated people can’t deal with that shit. None of our Asianated aunties–who’d be the first to tell us at our family reunions we’ve gotten fat–would approve.

What they would approve of, however, is Asianating yourself into…

Our boyfriend Daniel Dae Kim!

ROCK OF ASIAN: Onra

February 23rd, 2011 | 5 comments | Posted by Diana

Reasons why French beatmaker Onra is my obsession:

  • SPEX (obvs)
  • Hot-ass variety beats
  • Lickable likeable French accent
  • Chinoiseries (rel. 2007), the widely-lauded, smooth-souled, crackly, interpretation of 30 old Chinese and Vietnamese vinyl albums he lugged home to Paris from a trip to Vietnam
  • Dead sexy, head to toe. Even his fingers are sexy. I want to [blank] them.
  • Latest full-length: Long Distance (rel. 2010), which can best be described fun, funky, funky, funky, flirty, fresh
  • Forthcoming Chinoiseries Pt. 2
  • Occasional beard
  • merveilleuse vie paresseuse
  • Given name: Arnaud (say it aloud, reverse it; you’ve got his stage name)
  • Half-Vietnamese, half-French, he is the human equivalent of my two favorite comestibles: cà phê sữa đá and bánh mì
  • Love of cigarettes, basketball, vinyl rekkids, computers, joints
  • Inclination and ability to sample and build albums with respect to the source material’s societal context, while avoiding the pitfalls of politicizing his tuneage. Always, the music remains deeply, easily individual. Howdoyoosay, “Onra tracks are like a travel diary, joining the artist in a lighthearted pursuit for cultural and personal identity?”

BABEWATCH: Phil Yu, aka Angry Asian Man

November 2nd, 2010 | 11 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Phil Yu, aka Angry Asian Man

Age: 32

Hails from: NoCal

Occupation: Blogger, Community Leader, Full-Time Mensch

Why He’s a Babe: Our friend Phil is on the cover of this month’s KoreAm Journal lookin’ hella hawt. His scruffy good looks aside, however, it’s what Phil reveals in the the accompanying Q & A–conducted by our other pal, Jeff Yang, in what is probably Phil’s most candid interview to date–that explains why everyone crushes on Angry Asian Man. Dude’s a total rock star–we’ve spoken at packed conferences where people line up just to get a whiff of his Angry Asian Man Essence–yet he couldn’t be more humble, self-effacing, and dedicated to his readers, his community, and the things he writes about.

But the KoreAm interview also reveals some bad news for all of us AAM groupies: Continue reading BABEWATCH: Phil Yu, aka Angry Asian Man

BABEWATCH: Divya Narendra, The Real-Life Indian Dude Who Wasn’t Played By An Indian Dude In ‘The Social Network’

October 12th, 2010 | 5 comments | Posted by Jen

Name: Divya Narendra

Age: 28

Occupation: CEO and co-founder of SumZero, a professional networking site for investment banker-ish people, co-founder of Harvard Connection (later named ConnectU), and suer of Mark Zuckerberg

By now you know the name Divya Narendra, one of the founders of Harvard Connection/ConnectU who sued Mark Zuckerberg for stealing their idea for a social networking site. You know this because you’ve seen The Social Network, where Narendra is played by Max Minghella. Minghella isn’t Indian like Narendra, although he is of some Asian Persuasion (Minghella’s mother, a native of Hong Kong, is Scottish and Chinese). Still, this is kinda creepy, no?

Narendra IRL with the impossibly impossible Winklevoss Twins, top, and Narendra in the movie, below

What Narendra IRL and Narendra in The Social Network do have in common is that they’re both hot, in that Ivy League, elitist fuck-sorta way. (Although apparently, Narendra IRL comes from humbler origins.) And ladies, good news: Divya Narendra’s interested in women. We know that from stalking–what else?–his Facebook profile.

Daniel Henney Goes Outback Doesn’t Look Like Any Reality Show We’ve Ever Seen [PHOTOS]

April 8th, 2010 | 6 comments | Posted by Diana

In the years since leaving my old development job at a reality television company by saying, “This genre just insults my brain and I can’t do it anymore,” I’ve become a bit of a reality junkie. Funny.

I still don’t watch Survivor or Amazing Race or anything like that, but I never miss an episode of Celebrity Rehab/Sex Rehab/Sober House/Celebrity Addiction Show Rehab* with Dr. Drew. I cry during reruns of Say Yes To The Dress. I actually threw something at the TV in protest of the injustice displayed in the latest Tool Academy graduation ceremony.  I flipped my lid when I met Tim Gunn. I entered a contest to appear on Man Vs. Wild. I’ve watched every Kitchen Nightmares episode–both the awesome British and wacked-out American versions–three times over.

Total junkie!!!

Most reality show talent (not Tim Gunn, for crying out loud, but the sub-average Joes and Janes willing to sacrifice dignity and privacy for a toxic 15 minutes of fame) are hard to look at. It’s trainwrecks doing tequila shots with even ickier trainwrecks, or former teen idols past their prime, or narcissistic celebrities trying to revamp their image–y’know, the intolerable rep cultivated on another reality show.

So when I read on Figgy and Fatty that Daniel Henney was starring in his own reality show for Korean TV, I gasped a worried gasp.  Had he sold himself short? Is the beautiful and nummy Daniel Henney a trainwreck??

BABEWATCH: The Calvin Klein X Underwear Campaign

March 16th, 2010 | 7 comments | Posted by Jen

You may remember that, about a month ago, we told you former footballer Hidetoshi Nakata was appearing in a new Calvin Klein underwear campaign. Then our pal Erica tweeted about one of the ad campaign’s videos–which also features Twilight‘s Kellan Lutz, True Blood‘s Mehcad Brooks, and tennis star Fernando Verdasco–and suffice it to say, we haven’t gotten a whole lot done ever since.

Feast your groins eyes:

YES, GODAMMIT, WE WANNA SEE YOUR BLEEPS!!!

Thanks, Erica!

BIRTHDAY CELEBRASIAN! Jerry Hsu

December 17th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Happy 28th birthday today to pro boarder Jerry Hsu!


233584662_9aefc68ee9


This dude is the reason that Diana rides an Enjoi skateboard (poorly; with near-catastrophic drop-in attempts under her belt). Known fondly as Asian Elvis, he is not only a skate prodigy but a pretty sweet photographer, and one of our heroes.

Here’s hoping he ends up passed out in a pile of his own birthday vomit tonight! It’s the only way to celebrate.

We ♥ The Future Mr. Hyphen

November 13th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

This weekend, one man will be crowned as 2009′s Mr. Hyphen!!!

700x300_hyphen09
This will be the 4th-ever Mr. Hyphen meta-pageant, made possible by the partnership of Hyphen Magazine and the Oakland Asian Cultural Center.

The festivities sum up as such:

While structured like a pageant with rounds of talent, fashion and Q&A, Mr. Hyphen turns stereotypes on their heads in front of a sold-out crowd. Striking a blow for equal-opportunity all-in-good-fun ogling, Mr. Hyphen is an energy-filled evening of fun and charity. Rounds will be decided alternately by an audience vote and by an illustrious panel of judges. The man who is crowned Mr. Hyphen wins a $1,000 cash donation to his nonprofit organization.

If you’re in the Bay Area, ‘twould be downright sad for you to miss the parade of hotness! Especially since you can swing the vote! So here’s the info:

WHEN:
Saturday, November 14, 7 – 10pm

WHERE:
Oakland Asian Cultural Center (Pacific Renaissance Plaza, second floor)
388 9th Street, Suite 290
Oakland, CA 94607
(510) 637-0455

TICKETS:
Buy Advance tickets here (available until 4pm, November 13): $15
