We know the bar is low for both teenagers and actresses when it comes to awareness of global events and having brains larger than peas and all, but we were still stunned when we read little Taylor Momsen‘s response to OK! Magazine’s inquiry about her thoughts on the Haiti earthquake fallout.

Yeah, she's 16.

From OK!

“Um, right now I’m trying to just finish my record and getting through the last season of Gossip Girl for right now. So not so much thinking about that.”

Added Taylor, “But it’s awesome that everyone is ya know working towards a good cause.”

Feeling High About Evan Low

December 3rd, 2009 | 3 comments | Posted by Diana

You probably agree: Evan Low was one of the true highlights of Angry Asian Man’s 30 under 30 list this year.

He is, after all, only 26. He’s also adorably handsome, with the kind of ready smile that somehow seems to denote a firm handshake and kind demeanor. And in 2006, months before the little bugger had even been elected to City Council in the city of Campbell, SF Mayor Newsom had officially declared June 5 “Evan Low Day” for San Fransiscans. The guy has his own day. Seriously.

Mayor Low

Mayor Low

As a city council member, Low quickly racked up distinctions as the first openly gay, Chinese American and youngest person in the Campbell City Council. He was also noted as the State of California’s youngest, openly gay official.

So get this: on Tuesday, Low was promoted from vice-mayor to a one-year term as Mayor of Campbell, which now makes him the youngest gay, and one of the youngest Asian American mayors in the whole freakin’ country. Hot diggity, this country needs more Gayors!

We can barely contain our excitement about a young, hot, gaysian rocking such a prestigious city office–but we will because we’re also reallyreallyreallyreally jealous that he has achieved so frickin’ much with nary a wrinkle around his happy eyes.

New Hampshire: Asian and Heard

January 8th, 2008 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana
This guy??

I creeped out listened in on a bunch of young New Hampshire voters yesterday talking about the issues and why they vote. To my delight, one of them was Asian. To my dismay, “The Asian” was also a 20-ish stuttering Republicasian voting for John McCain. Dammit! Whaaattt? NOOO!

My party bias aside, I was at least excited to hear her thoughts on the most major issues facing voters today: “I donno, I think Bush has done a really good job with the war.” And the problems that the future leader of the free world would need to tackle: “Nothing really. I think everything is pretty good.” And why her candidasian would be the best guy for the job: “I’m pretty sure he’d do change for the good.”

On her major sources for news and information: “I read the newspapers and talk to my parents… [I'm a Republican] because my parents are.”

Well shit, at least her parents are happy with their little DISGRASIAN.

Happy 18th birthday, Michelle Wie! We know we’ve been a little tough on you in the past, but hey, you’re a superstar and you can take it.

OMG, we just realized that you’re a superstar and you’ve only just turned 18 and you’ve got no worry creases or laugh lines or drinker’s pooch or nicotine stains on your teeth yet, just a career and millions of dollars and the limit of the sky. Ugh. We feel nauseous. We feel old. We feel jealous. We hate you all over again.

Let Thumbs Rule

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

For those who don’t know, the US Championships of text messaging took place on Saturday in NYC (I know! I thought the same thing too! Who didn’t somebody ping me on my Blackberry? Maybe they messaged my Treo instead, etc., etc., etc.). AFP reported over the weekend that roughly 250 people’s thumbs took a crack at combinations of Buddhist passages, shorthand phrases, and the lyrics to Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious–for a chance to best the reigning West Coast champ Eli Tirosh and take home $25K. The winner ended up being Morgan Pozgar, a 13-year old girl who said, “It’s all about the thumbwork.”

“In the end, 13-year-old Morgan Pozgar faced off against Michael ‘Cheeser’ Nguyen in the east coast final, with Pozgar slipping past her challenger to face west coast champion Tirosh, a law student from Los Angeles.

‘I just wasn’t fast enough,’ said Nguyen, a 23-year-old engineer from Pennsylvania. Asked how it felt to take second place, he was clearly disappointed: ‘I just got beaten by a teenage girl, but you know.’


Note to Michael “Cheeser”:
Hey. How’s it going? Fine here. Anyway, here’s the thing. It’s bad enough that you’ve allowed yourself to be nicknamed “Cheeser,” and worse that you’ve allowed that name into print. You are a 23-year old engineer living in New York– why are you spending your Saturdays thumbing it out with a bunch of teenagers on Sidekicks? Actually–you know what… do what you gotta do. If you want to compete, more power to you. But pouting after you lose is just NOT COOL. IT’S TEXTBOOK DISGRASIAN BEHAVIOR. And for that matter, in situations like this, just LET THE LITTLE GIRL WIN. IT’S A TEXT MESSAGING COMPETITION. There are BETTER THINGS for you that are so far out of her reach– like driving a car or owning a car or having sex (in a car). Let that massage your ego a little as you go to bed tonight.

And for next time, remember it’s all about the thumbwork. Stop using your wrists so much, dork. As my Vietnamese Grandma always said, “Second Place is just First Loser.”
