Intern Jasmine’s Links Of The Daysian

So apparently John Cho (before he was famous) met Morrissey (who has been famous for a long time, and is still famous now) once in a pool hall frequented by Filipino gangsters. There is nothing about this story that is not awesome. [Vulture]

“The Mindy Project” has only just debuted this week on Fox, and there is already a backlash from bloggers and TV writers against the show’s creator and star, Mindy Kaling. Nisha Chittal weighs in for Racialicious. [Racialicious]

The Chinese Really Love Their Dogs (And Not To Eat, Wiseass)

October 28th, 2010 | 4 comments | Posted by Jen

First, the good news: The Chinese are no longer eating their dogs (almost)!

Hear that, Morrissey, ya prick?

A recent story from the NY Times, which loves to print pieces about how China is overcoming its barbarism one “civilized” step at a time–showing a particular affinity for “Chinglish” stories –reports that, although once banned, dogs have become increasingly popular as pets in recent years. The Times story tells tale (tail?) of status breeds, fancy canine day spas, and animal-protection laws becoming a phenomenon in China.

Now for the bad news: The Chinese embracing dogs-not-as-food idea has gone way too far.

I give you Lu Lu, the purse-carrying pooch from Henan Province:

As dlisted‘s Michael K. put it, “I mean, her pussy’s hanging out!

Also: if you’re going to make that poor dog carry a purse and walk on two legs, eff that janky teddy bear shit and get that girl some Chanel! Even a knockoff–and I know those haven’t been banned in China–would suffice.

Viva Hate: Dr. Moz Classifies Chinese People As A “Subspecies”

September 7th, 2010 | 15 comments | Posted by Diana

Oh, Moz.

You, ol’ boy, have always been a curmudgeonly, conflicted, narcissistic, arrogant little cunt of a man. A curmudgeonly, conflicted, narcissistic, arrogant little cunt with the voice of a silvery angel, but a cunt nonetheless. And maybe that’s what most people love about you. In an age where most rock stars are just reality-star-husbands-in-training or rehab seat fillers, it’s quite a rarity for a music persona to commit fully to the persona, and completely reject being a real person. So the magical music man that is less a man than an endless well of contradictions can be a welcome reprieve, a thing to be endlessly fascinated by, a mystery perpetually left unsolved: A fay macho-guy. A gaudy, attention-whoring recluse. A bitter-tongued poet. A bleak dreamer. A senescent child.

In the decades that I have followed you and your work, I’ve always rationalized that the element anchoring all of your wild idiosyncrasies–the extreme beliefs and outlandish statements, offensively defensive attitude, insistence on flapping that damn mic cord all around the stage like a lasso while every other performer in the world has gone wireless–was intelligence. You are a self-taught educated man. A smart man. A man of many nuances.

How then, did this comment, made to poet and Guardian writer Simon Armitage, come to pass?

“Did you see the thing on the news about their treatment of animals and animal welfare? Absolutely horrific. You can’t help but feel that the Chinese are a subspecies.”

Our Children of Invention Are Smarter/More Successful/Likely to Give Us Grandkids Than Your Children of Invention

May 8th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Jen and I typically, like Morrissey, hate it when our friends become successful.

Every so often, however, this is not the case.

Like right now, for example: we’ve been watching our pen pal Tze Chun’s film, Children of Invention, make the festival rounds and rack up gobs of sparkling accolades and awards. And they’re not little awards, either: Special Jury Prizes at the Nashville, Sarasota, and San Francisco International Asian American Film Festivals (for example), The Grand Jury Prize at the Independent Film Fest in Boston, blah blah blah win win win. Agh!

Most recently, Invention scored the Grand Jury Prize for Best Feature in our very own grown-up hometown, at the LAAPFF.

Cute kids + Sweet filmmaking = Awards and applause

And you wanna know something? We couldn’t be happier. Weird.

Thanks, Tze!
