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!!!

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:

ROCK OF ASIAN: Kenji Shinagawa

May 27th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

We have You Is Awesome to thank for introducing us to the gorgeous, gauzy tunes of Kenji Shinagawa (we’ve been digging through their archives like kids stealing into their big bro’s LP collection lately. Mint condition copy of Rio, anyone?). Shinagawa is a songwriter, as well as a guitar and loops man–one of those heavenly fellows with both a poetic soul and ticklish spirit. You’ll find his songs to be extremely evocative, yet distant and relaxing as a long afternoon on the sand.

Listen and look here. Buy here.

Foiled Again

December 2nd, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Every time–I’m talking, EVERY SINGLE TIME–I get a quick glance of a photo and see this one tiny Korean girl rocking rainbow rave style (minus the large tribal earrings), looking eerily like a low-rent rendition of my high school obsession (a diminutive raver pixie named Tiffany), I wrinkle my nose and scoff. I think: She’s ruining it. She’s fucking ruining it! She’s not rocking the colors right! Her shoes are whack! Her knees are all wrong! She looks like a nerdcore Skittles fanatic. She’s not even cool! What is WRONG with this sista??

And then I realize: that ain’t no sista.

That is…

ONCH with poor Joel McHale
