I was watching this Vevo Live Set, and just in general these are really good and they kind of remind me of Tiny Desk as far as having their own style, and wanted to add up as well.

When White People Go Bad x The JACL KICKING ASS: Governor Jim Pillen of Nebraska

Monday, November 06, 2023

It's been a while since there was a post specific to White People Going Bad. 

After reading the JACL's response to the not so honorable Gov. Jim Pillen of Nebraska, thought that there was no better time than bây giờ to do another post.

Here's the JCL's email in total.


During a radio interview in September, Governor Jim Pillen of Nebraska responded to an article written by Yanqi Xu of the Flatwater Free Press, regarding runoff pollution caused by farms owned by the Pillen family. In his response, Gov. Pillen noted that he had not read the article but continued on to say “All you got to do is look at the author. The author is from communist China. What more do you need to know?” JACL denounces Governor Pillen’s remark as racist, xenophobic, and contrary to the advancement of an independent and free press in this country.

The United States has seen a startling increase in anti-Asian hate and violence, specifically targeting Chinese and Chinese American communities. This rise has sadly been fueled by elected officials such as Governor Pillen as well as media personalities who have used their platforms to promote hate and intolerance in society. Legislators and governors in other states have introduced laws restricting property ownership targeting Chinese citizens in the United States hearkening back to the Alien Land Laws of the last century.

The JACL Omaha Chapter Board added: “When community members do not voice their concerns over actions of leaders that negatively impact certain groups, an appearance of complicity or disregard can be construed by the public, and history has shown that innocent people will be targeted.” 

Our elected officials must be held accountable for their actions and should take accountability themselves for such. We call on Governor Pillen to apologize for his smearing of Yanqi Xu and his use of anti-Chinese rhetoric. 


Thank you JACL for the response!

From Greta Lee On Love And Being Uncomfortable

Monday, November 06, 2023


A good interview with Greta Lee on Past Lives (from October), who can also be seen on the Apple+ TV show The Morning Show. Here's a quick byte:

"I did not think my Korean was good enough for this film. I think I grew up after years and years of being criticized for my Korean being bad and like disappointing my ancestors and not being a good enough Korean — that is baked into my experience as an American. But with this movie and with Nora and with Celine and her vision for the movie, it became this incredible opportunity..."

Re: Halloween Hitler Pose AKA COKOTEE Led Mask AKA No One Gave This One A "But...."?

I get it in some ways - the kid is supposed to be flying---but sans the other arm, it kind of looks like the kid is just saluting Hitler.

And....I mean--I know this is just me--but I feel like the kid underneath the mask could be Asian....and then that would be completely wrong....

Holy Fuck Georgia. Leonard Cure Killed By Police In Traffic Stop. Exonerated in 2020. Served 16 Years In Wrongful Conviction. WTF.

Wednesday, October 18, 2023


Picture from the Innocence Project of FL @FLA_Innocence

News still needs to come out about this shooting--and that means real news, versus what the GBI, or GSTs want the public to hear--and we need those body cameras.

We definitely need to see the body cameras.

Maybe they figured after the ruling on Manuel Paez Terán--Tortuguita--they were untouchable?

How does speeding turn into killing someone? 

Leonard Cure, after receiving around $800K just this year as part of the settlement, and being out 3.5 years...he went crazy and started attacking the officer?

Sure, maybe there were some triggers--but I'd put my money on Leonard just going to jail and then looking to get out...like he did before.

I just don't see it. 

Show us the body camera.

Suni Lee + SELF Article (Long Good Read)

Monday, October 09, 2023

Image from the SELF article. Photo by Chrisean Rose

As an elite athlete, Lee’s body is her instrument. There’s an intimacy and awareness borne from years spent testing her limits and becoming extremely familiar with every nook and cranny, every strength and weakness. Now, overnight, her body felt completely foreign. She was supposed to be getting ready for the postseason. She was supposed to be celebrating her final collegiate season. She was about to turn 20. Instead, she wondered, What’s wrong with me? [...]

Her message is a reminder for anyone facing health challenges as well as the broader community of girls and women in sports, especially in the Hmong community, in which Lee has noticed girls tend to take on more traditional roles at home. “That’s why I want to help pave a way for other women,” she says. She doesn’t mean that everyone should do gymnastics. Rather, she wants to encourage people to find something that is meaningful to them and that brings them joy, and to not give up on themselves.

Jeannie Mai, Jeezy, And Let's Hope For The Best

Thursday, September 28, 2023

I won't go into conjecture on the latest articles or comments, and unlike the rest of the internet and pitting Asian against Black and vice versa, will only say that everyone loves them both and it's unfortunate that this has happened (unlike SYJ where we KNOW she's married to the DEVIL).

Here's to hoping they can work it out, or at least have a path forward for their sake and their daughter's sake.

C'est la vie.

My Goodness, Just Leave Hasan Minhaj Alone - He's A Comedian/Politcal Satirist

Monday, September 25, 2023

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling like all this "Hasan Minhaj is a liar" news is really just people not liking the subject matter of Hasan and it seems like a lot of these people coming out are...well....a lot of White People who seems to focus on a lot of White Things and White Comedians.

Robin Williams, even though some of his voices could be a little out of date today, was the king of hyperbole and story telling. That's what comedians and satirists do. But I never heard that about Williams. His cocaine stories were never put up to a litmus test of if everything actually happened. 

No--he did cocaine and told us funny stories about it (well you know....as much as being a cocaine addict can be funny).

They embellish life to make a point to make us laugh and think.

Do people really think they tell us the truth about themselves all the time? Or don't write pieces for their skits/shows which aren't the absolute facts? 

What world are we living in?

Is someone going to sue because Star Trek isn't real?

Just leave Hasan Minhaj alone.

And yes, he would be a great Daily Show Host.

Iron Horse Road: A Tale from Gold Mountain

Friday, September 22, 2023

Here's a podcast by Micah Huang and Hao Huang about Chinese laborers and the Transcontinental Railroad:

Iron Horse Road: a Tale from Gold Mountain recounts one of the great untold epics of American history: The story of the Chinese laborers–neither truly enslaved nor truly free–who built the most rugged stretches of the Transcontinental Railroad. More than 150 years ago, these Gold Mountain Men tunneled through mountains, dangled over cliffs, and dragged entire trains over alpine summits where other Americans feared to tread. The prosperity of the gilded age was founded on their blood, sweat and grit, but their story has long been suppressed, minimized and forgotten. For Iron Horse Road, the father/son team behind Blood on Gold Mountain retrace the steps of these workers from the Sacramento hills to the snows of Donner Summit. Equal parts history and travelogue, Iron Horse Road uses binaural 3D audio to transport the listener to deep canyons, echoing caverns and windswept peaks–a world where adventure is always around the corner, and the past is carved in blood and stone. 

In the Camps: A Refugee Musical (9/23--9/30)

Friday, September 22, 2023


Check out the musical, in its second phase  where they'll host four intimate community performances at Indigenous Roots Cultural Arts Center--info below.

Introducing IN THE CAMPS: A REFUGEE MUSICAL by Saymoukda Duangphouxay Vongsay! The project is currently in its second phase, where we’ll host four intimate community performances at Indigenous Roots Cultural Arts Center.

NOTE: Only 60 seats are available per show. Late seating WILL NOT be permitted - please come on time!

The story

Using songs and humor, IN THE CAMPS will take place in a refugee camp and tell the story of Laotians who’ve escaped communist Laos. While in the camps, refugees built makeshift past lives to remind them of who they were before the disruption of war. An older woman turns a storage hut into a beauty parlor. She offers hair washing, scalp massages, and haircuts to remind herself that there is still beauty in the world. A former monk erects a martial arts gym behind one of the food distribution tents. He trains young Laotians on how to regain their strength, confidence, and power. An ex-communist soldier tries to blend in. He fears violent retaliation from victims and their families if he is found out. He is also hopeful that in a camp full of Buddhists, he will be forgiven. A young newly-wed must decide on the length that she will go and the boundaries she will cross to reunite with her husband who is missing.

Craig Day Milne Charged With Felony Hate Crime At Wing Luke Museum

Friday, September 22, 2023

You just have to at least like the fact that Milne is getting charged with a hate crime because that doesn't always happen.

The King County Prosecutor's Office announced Monday they rush-filed charges of a hate crime and first-degree malicious mischief against 76-year-old Craig Milne. Prosecutors have asked for Milne to be held on $30,000 bail. Meanwhile, the Wing Luke Museum remains open as staff and volunteers continue to heal from Thursday night's violent attack. 

Police say Milne yelled racist statements and took a sledgehammer to shatter nine windows of the historic museum in Seattle's Chinatown-International District.

Executive Director Joël Barraquiel Tan says there has been an incredible outpouring of love and support from the community.

He says staff, volunteers and leadership have constantly been checking in on each other since the attack and are committed to educating the public about Asian American and Pacific Islander history in Puget Sound.

"Over 100 years of anti-Chinese policies and vigilantism that isn't that long ago, that isn't too many generations ago, and I think this recent hate crime and vandalism is just connected to that," said Tan.

Asian Art Museum + Murakami: Monsterized

Friday, September 22, 2023


Takashi Murakami: Unfamiliar People — Swelling of Monsterized Human Ego is the first solo exhibition in San Francisco by Takashi Murakami (Japanese, b. 1962). An internationally recognized artist, Murakami is also a major figure in global pop culture whose influence extends to fashion, consumer products, curation, and entertainment. With a boldly colored, upbeat style and a pop sensibility that draws inspiration from anime and manga, Murakami’s accessible and fun creations deliver more than meets the eye: beneath the surface of his work lies a nuanced examination of human behavior, informed by historical and art-historical references and a wry sense of humor.

The larger-than-life paintings and sculptures in Murakami: Monsterized use monsters as a central motif to address the complicated nature of the world around us. The artist’s recent works suggest that our rapidly changing and increasingly digital landscape is populated by monsters — whether harmful or helpful — many of which humans have created and perhaps even become. Blurring the line between frightening and fun, these monsters embody the forces and behaviors that threaten and haunt us, as well as those that offer us diversion and escape from chaos. Several new works created for this exhibition find Murakami responding to a social environment marked by a global pandemic and a shift toward virtual interaction. Paintings of distorted figures reflect the swelling egos of individuals promoting themselves relentlessly on social media, while works recording the artist’s creation of NFTs, including avatars, look with optimism toward a digitally liberated future.

Senior Curator of Japanese Art Laura W. Allen locates Murakami’s imagery in a lineage of Japanese supernatural creatures including the kaiju (giant monsters) of postwar manga, television, and film — such as Godzilla, who makes a memorable appearance in this exhibition — and extending back to the “menacing and adorable” yōkai (supernatural entities) of Edo-period scrolls. “The visual DNA of Murakami’s characters has origins in centuries-old styles in Japanese art,” says Allen, “such as depicting Buddhist arhats and Daoist immortals as wizened beings with strange features, bulging eyes, and bared teeth.” To these venerated historical sources, Murakami adds the “technicolor palette, goofy expressions, and eclectic mixture of motifs” that have become his trademark — boldly remixing tradition to reflect the complexity of the present day.
