Lucy Letby And White Woman Privilege

Monday, August 21, 2023

Glamour UK does a pretty damn good job of putting this out there, and at the same time, it's something we all know too. Hence the word Karen and its origination.

But still--that White Woman Privilege (because it is there)--it's amazing what that buys some people.

In Lucy Letby's case, it bought enought time for to murder 7 babies.

Think about that one for a while.

Knowledge Drops From Norman Chen

Monday, August 21, 2023

If you don't feel like you are safe, you don't feel like you can belong — you remember Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs — we cannot thrive, we cannot succeed, we cannot be respected, respected by others. And so it's fundamental that we believe, that we belong, and that we feel safe in our society.

And this really has a damaging effect on mental health for our community. Mental health is a significant problem for the AAPI community, as for other communities. But we have the terrible statistic that, among AAPI youth ages 15 to 24, suicide is the leading cause of death. And our group is unique in that, unfortunately.


Asian Americans Getting Put In The Middle Again (AKA WTF Is Going On In Florida?)

Monday, August 21, 2023

You really do have to ask the question of what is happening down in Florida. When I grew up it was simply the place old people went to retire and you visited the Disney place (I can never remember which one is there and I'm too lazy to Google it).

Now? It's just a bastion of WTF racially, where it's like anything goes.

How do you not spend money on DEI?

How do you say that Black Americans benefited from Slavery?

How can you say that modern America doesn't oppress the whole MF BIPOC community?

And now you have this wedge of putting APIA's in the middle

I will agree with Gregg Orton and say as well that opportunity, justice, and equity, cannot be a zero-sum game.

A Little Chloe, A Little Flower, A Whole Bunch Of Awesome

Monday, August 21, 2023


Recently featured on CBS last month here's a little bit of Chloe Flower.

From the NY Times

Big Break: After studying at the Manhattan School of Music and the Royal Academy of Music, Ms. Flower developed her Popsical style, which implements pop song structures with trap beats and strings, but she struggled to find someone willing to take a chance on her work. Around 2008, a well-connected friend brought her to a Babyface concert in Atlantic City, and Ms. Flower met the artist backstage. She later emailed him a GarageBand demo of her music. “His manager wrote me back saying, ‘He likes what he heard,’” Ms. Flower said. “I flew to L.A. with my mom to meet him and he signed me the same day.”

Stream her music.

All Hail Lilia Vu (AKA The Best MF Women's Golfer In The World)

Monday, August 21, 2023


And for being the best Lilia Vu gets a cool $1.3 million dollards.

Not bad if you can get it, and not bad considering that at one point she thought about quitting pro golf.

From the Wikis:

Vu turned professional in January 2019 and finished T27 at the inaugural LPGA Q-Series to earn status for the 2019 LPGA Tour, where she made one cut in nine starts.[1]

In 2021, she won three titles on the Symetra Tour and rose into the top 250 in the Women's World Golf Rankings for the first time.[6] In addition to winning the Garden City Charity Classic, the Twin Bridges Championship and the Four Winds Invitational, she also collected the 2021 Potawatomi Cup and bonus prize money.[7][8] She finished the season first on the money list, winning Symetra Tour Player of the Year honors and earning her LPGA Tour card for 2022.[9]

Vu beat Angel Yin in a playoff to win her first major at the 2023 Chevron Championship.[2] She took her second major with a six shot victory over Charley Hull at the 2023 Women's British Open.[10] The win moved her to number 1 in the Women's World Golf Rankings.[11]

Life Moves + Bloggy Time

Monday, August 14, 2023

While to me, online is in many ways the same as offline, and life is everything that someone is, there's still that aspect to "real life", or meeting IRL (because even if I met you over video/chat/facetime, etc it's still nice to meet in person).

In that way I won't say that real life has gotten in the way of my surge to blog more this year, and specifically this summer, because blogging is a part of life too--it's not just this compartmentalized space that I think of as not "real life"--but other life events have needed their own time and space and it's just needed to sit for a bit over the last few weeks.

Should be back to some more regular blog time (and seriously--I have some writeups on Warrior that just need to be done).

Loop It: Captain and Umie + Rap Việt

Monday, August 14, 2023


From Vie Talents Rap Việt with Captain and Umie this is a loop of their performance from a few weeks ago, and yes, this has been on my playlist.

And yes, you can thank me later (I take love in the form of hot biscuits and gravy or in gigantic bowls of phở).
