Hole-y Sh*t, Is That a Magic Asian?

May 1st, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

I’ve been really, really excited-like, all week long, since I found out that Asians are magic.

SO excited that I started seeking out magical proof of our Asian magical magicness, and actually–or perhaps magically–stumbled on a video of cute magical Asian gal doing an actual magic trick!!

Let’s check it out!

Um.

I. Um.

Don’t think I like magic so much anymore.

Time to go practice the violin or something.

We Deserve A Break Today

Every once in awhile, though we really love the day-in, day-out, double-double-toil-and-trouble of blogging each week, it’s nice to know that we can take a breather–cuz somebody else is doing our job for us.

This time, it’s the crew over at Rotten Tomatoes (which airs on Current TV), who just discovered the celestial secret to creating an age shift (y’know, like in your new favorite film, 17 Again) in a movie:

Duh, ain’t it obvious? A MAGIC ASIAN.

Willing Suspasian of Disbelief

July 24th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

I may be the last person in the world to have done it, but I went to see Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix last night. Quite frankly, it rocked. Intense, fantastic, emotional, frightening… arguably the best Potter movie yet.

Yeah, yeah, I know. Some of you have problems with the Potter movies… they’re riddled with inconsistencies, they unrealistically threaten the lives of their young characters on a daily basis, they’re ridiculum–er, ridiculous. I get it. Some of you hate magic. You hate adorable kids. You hate flying animals. Fine.

Me, I have but one gripe from last night’s flick:

In a moment of admiration, cutie patootie Cho Chang applauds Harry’s magical teaching, then confesses her learning weakness: “I’ve never been able to study anything before.”

SOME THINGS I AM WILLING TO OVERLOOK, BUT A LIE LIKE THIS, I CANNOT!

DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK!

May 18th, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Diana and I discussed this one a fair amount today, because we thought that GQ’s Jim Nelson had really earned it, even though we disgraced his cheesedick-ass yesterday, but then we decided that, one day, we would run into the guy somewhere, kick the shit out of him, and that would be that.

Now on to the DISGRASIAN DU SEMAINE. It’s a two-parter.

This week, Disney announced that it will be releasing its first Chinese-language, animated movie this summer.

“We respect and appreciate the deep-rooted rich Chinese local culture,” Stanley Cheung, managing director of Disney China, said in a statement.

We concur! Chinese culture is rich! We invented the compass. We invented gunpowder. We invented spaghetti. Wow. It feels so weird to be on the same page as Disney.

But wait. There’s more:

The movie, based on a novel written by the late Chinese children’s writer Zhang Tianyi, is about a boy who discovers a gourd a squash-like vegetable often used in Asian dishes that grants him wishes.

Granted, this magic gourd is pretty damn cute.


But it’s a VEGETABLE. A GODDAMN VEGETABLE.
