Then and Now

Korean pop sensasian Rain showed up Friday at the ImaginAsian Center‘s special screening of Speed Racer looking nerdtastic! It’s a huge improvement from his artichokey, rent-boy look of yore. Well done, dude.

Speed Racer, in which Rain makes his Hollywood acting debut, opens May 9.

Memoirs of a Geisho

April 7th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Interesting news from Japan–male escorts who entertain and amuse female clients, commanding as much as $50,000 a night, are becoming a cultural phenomenon. These “hosts”–or geishos, as I like to call them–are paid to take their female clientele out on the town and pump up their egos (and only their egos, apparently). Which is great news for women around the world. Women who want to have a good time this side of an oily male stripper. Women who don’t want to be thought of as geishas any longer. Women who want gender equality and like to say stuff like, “I Am Woman, Hear Me Get a Lap Dance.” Women who don’t have gay best friends to remind them how fabulous they are. And women who want to date men like Yunosuke (pictured), who, with his artichoke haircut, surgically-slimmed down nose, tweezed eyebrows, and lipglossy lips…looks exactly like a woman.

Thanks, Josh!

Wiggin’ Out

February 21st, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

East Coast correspondentasian Greenie sent me a fun Wired story this week about Satoshi Fujita, the Mystery (left) of Japan. But instead of fuzzy hats and droppin’ negs, this nerd-turned-master-pickup-artist’s game centers around wigs and magic tricks. And, judging by the profile’s photos of Fujita and his students, not just any kind of wigs.

Artichoke hair wigs?!? That’s what gets these dudes laid?!?


Thanks, G!

An Open Letter to Asian Boy Bands

August 21st, 2007 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen



Hey Dudes,

Wazzup?!? I’m writin to you not so much as a fan but as a curious onlooker. I wuz mindin my own beeswax the other night, eatin delicious Chinese food in the SGV with my BFFs, and I noticed on their flatties, there wuz some singin competition, like AI but with Azns. Even though the sound wuz off, I could tell that all the boyz were DISGRAZN. How, u ask? It wuzn’t the 1-handed gluvs or all that scary man jewelry. And a lot of the boyz were really really key-ute.

It wuz the Artichoke Haircut.

WTF am I talkin bout? Take a look in the mirror. What’s wit all those layers? Are u addicted to mousse? Didja–as my BF Diana would say–get n2 a fight with a weedwhacker? Are yr hairdressers blind?

Wen I look at u, all I see is Meg Ryan circa the late 90′s, after she wuz cute and b4 she became a plastic surgery droid. This gives me awkweird feelins I can’t really xpress. I realze that boy bands are sposed to have preposterous hair, but u gotta draw the line somewhere.

____________the line___________

Plz stop this asap.
