#100PostsIn24HrsForAAPIHeritageMonth - 1 - Time To Press Start

Sunday, May 24, 2015

Between feeling like I've been kinda lazy, a little shamed, and being in the right place at the right time, I've decided to go on a quest. On one hand I don't think this should be too hard and I think I can do it early, but I also feel like I could peter out around sixty-five. Maybe I crumble at thirty. At the same time, while my posts can be short, I won't be posting one word posts for 30 entries, although that could be fun at some point. I think that's it. Pressing start now @ 12:15 AM CST. Bing.



My blog posts aren't always me writing it out in-depth.


Do your own quest then.

David So And Your Angry Friend

Saturday, May 23, 2015

I think in another world I could have been this guy - and I can still be militant and vigilant - but I'd like to think more relaxed most of the time.

For the most part.

A Lullaby Rant: If I'm A Joke I Think I'll Be A Pun Inside A Llama

Thursday, May 21, 2015

This is just one of those posts where I'm a little ranty but I'm still lazy so it's kind of a mild mannered rant and it's probably more like a bedtime story that you would read to your pet lamoid to put them to sleep...

All I'm saying is that I work with people online, offline, and in-between on a lot of different fronts and you know when people either respect what you do or they don't in whatever arena it is. It's not rocket science. It's data. You may not always agree, or be up on every project and endeavor, but at least there's a respect for the work and the effort.

I like that.

Because you have to have that if you want change. If you want dialogue and work to be done no matter what you're doing. Change occurs all over and in different ways. No one has a monopoly or patent on how change has to happen or who's involved in that change, or where that change takes place.

If some of that change takes place on a half robot llama with a built-in PS2 because it's a cyborg llama going old school I'm just going with that's okay (and technically pretty cool as who wouldn't want a cyborg llama?)

Keep the same 'ol same 'ol.

I'm going with furry and electric.

WTF Is Wayward Pines And Did You Say M. Night Shyamalan?

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

In answer to the question posed in the title I think the answer is "What's apparently the Twin Peaks of now" and "Yes. I did say M. Night Shyamalan."

Wayward Pines airs on Fox Thursdays at 9/8c.

We all know who Vincent Chin is - and he would have been 60 today.


Random Kelly Hu

Monday, May 18, 2015

Kelly Hu is busy as hell these days it seems - from Arrow episodes, Mortal Kombat X and Battlefield Hardline video games to Beyond the Game.

Nice to see Asian American actors and actresses who've been doing it for a while, keep on doing it.


That's it.

And Ultron Gets Pitch-Slapped

From Forbes

We all knew it was going to tumble anyway because it just couldn't do a 3rd week, but I do like the fact that Pitch Perfect 2 took it down.

Just something about the juxtaposition.

We Have Food Allergies (AKA That's Just A Good Article) + 40% Of Asian American Kids?

Sunday, May 17, 2015

All I'm saying is that this is a good, long, in-depth article.

“I gave him soup to help him feel better,” says Wong. “He ate it and then threw up, and I saw that he was scratching his belly.” She didn’t realize at the time that even before his first sip of the soup, her son was having an anaphylactic reaction: the microscopic particles of peanut proteins released in the air during cooking were causing his throat to swell and close. Fortunately, she called her doctor, who urged her to take her son to an allergist right away.

Wong’s son, who is now 11 years old, is one of the 6 million American children affected by food allergies. Asian-American children are 40 percent more likely to suffer from food allergies than the U.S population at large, according to a 2011 report published in the journal Pediatrics, the only American food allergy study which offers statistics specifically on Asian-Americans. On top of that, treating food allergies can present very unique challenges within the Asian-American community.

Literate + Vietnamese.Adopted: A Collection of Voices + The Vietnamese Diaspora Calls Your Name

Sunday, May 17, 2015

Description: Vietnamese.Adopted: A Collection of Voices is a group of writings each in their own form and style, un-censored in content or subject matter, allowing each person to speak on what being a Vietnamese Adoptee, Adopted Vietnamese, or Vietnamese War Orphan, is to them, as well as in relation to the greater Vietnamese and World communities. Shaped by their own experiences, observations, country, and language, it is the goal of this book to make these narratives, opinions, and perspectives available to the greater Adopted and Vietnamese communities.

Amazon Link: http://www.amazon.com/Vietnamese-Adopted-Collection-Voices-Various-Authors/dp/0988585863/

I'm happy to be a part of this anthology and do what I can to help get more voices from the Vietnamese Diaspora, Vietnamese American, and Adopted Vietnamese communities out there. If you think you know the Viet community, but don't know some of the stories and migration paths of Vietnamese War Orphans and Adopted Vietnamese - you don't really know the community. It's like denying the guy who's legs are gone because they got blown off in the war as he's asking you to buy the lottery tickets that you'll never win anyway.
