BABEWATCH: Annie “Ecstasy” Leung, The Guinness Book Guitar Heroine

February 1st, 2011 | 4 comments | Posted by Diana


Name: Annie Leung

Age: 25

Occupation: Pro Gamer

Hails from: Orange County, CA

Why She’s A Babe: She’s got all the AZN cred to make your parents happy–born and raised in SoCal, a background in piano, a degree from Cal, and, la-dee-dah, a Guinness World Record. Incredibly, Leung realized the dream that Jen and I have always shared–a world record in Guitar Hero playing–by scoring 789,349 points playing Dragonforce’s “Through The Fire And Flames” on Expert (right now, I am totally typing between heaving sobs).

Yes, her gamer handle, “Ecstasy,”  sounds suspiciously like a stripper name. And for sure, we might need to have a little talk about those hooker boots (Gurrl!) that seem to find their way to Leung’s GH competitions. And I feel like we could help her out a little in the “stage presence” department (If you don’t bleed, it ain’t rock!).

But damn, y’all. Betch is HOT. And her fingers move so fast!

John Yoo Is Not Such a Bad Guy After All

July 22nd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

An Australian comedy show recently infiltrated one of Torture Memos-author John Yoo‘s law classes at Berkeley, dressing up one dude as an Abu Ghraib prisoner, and, weirdly, Yoo didn’t waterboard the guy! The Bush Administration legal expert, who, in a 2005 debate, couldn’t find anything illegal or indefensible about crushing the testicles of a child, even offered his class-infiltrator time to leave before he called security!

Awww, what a softie. I bet he’s great with puppies and babies, too.

Here’s Hoping There’s a Queer Garden

April 23rd, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana

Let’s do the math (since Asians love math):

Gaysian = Fun

so

Gaysians [must] = More Fun

ergo… a

Gaysian conference = FUN x

That’s just algebra, guys (at least we believe so). Can’t fight the facts.

Anyway, who isn’t down for a little FUN TIMES FRIGGIN’ INFINITY? What’s not appealing about a Skittles-colored, über-hip, designy flyer? Who wouldn’t be excited for a little West Coast love?

No one that we can think of. So we expect to see lots of bright, shiny, happy faces seeking out the good times at Cal’s 2nd Annual Queer and Asian Conference, which happens next week (MAY 2nd) in the beautiful Bay Area.

We’re giving you plenty of time to shift your schedules, so don’t miss it.
