In memory of MARK AGUHAR 1987-2012

January 2, 2014 / 0 comments

Two years ago, I clicked through to a tumblr with the tagline “BLOGGING FOR BROWN GURLS” that my friend had recommended on Facebook. The next thing I knew I was at the beginning; having spent a couple hours scrolling backwards through hundreds of fascinating, angry, hilarious, soul-baring, gender bending posts. I checked the site a…

Racist Tweets attack Asians on Twitter

The 12 most infamous racist tweets, ‘Twitter attacks’ on Asians

December 31, 2013 / 30 comments

Twitter can be a powerful social tool; anyone can share their feelings at any moment, tweet their opinion about any event, from anywhere.  Because Twitter works on that impulse, the reactions can also provide a window into the brain of the tweeter. And taking those related tweets together, one can also get a sense of…

Humanity Has Fallen: ‘Red Dawn,’ ‘Olympus’ inspire racist tweets

December 30, 2013 / 3 comments

When it comes to motivations for racist violence, the case of Olympus Has Fallen and Red Dawn just may take the racist cake (NS;LX that came up on Google). It’s by far the most illogical and mind-boggling event. I never thought a MOVIE would inspire nationalism to swell up so big and muscley (and apparently the…

Asian(a) can’t drive

December 30, 2013 / 0 comments

When Asiana flight 214 crashed at San Francisco International Airport back in July, the ignorant Twitter monkeys came out to swipe at the low-hanging fruit. Patting themselves on the back, they fed each other variations of “Asians can’t drive” jokes.

Sorry Kate Gosselin, you can’t marry into racial empathy

December 29, 2013 / 11 comments

I reserve a special place in my heart for Asians that justify and encourage ignorance by demeaning and clowning themselves by playing up stereotypes. I have a similar cramped, dark and musty space for those that should know better. Earlier this year, someone obtained a photo of Kate Gosselin pulling back the corner of her…

> NS;LX: Traditionally, the phrase not surprised; low expectations (abbreviated ns;lx) has been used as a concise manner to express how one is no longer amazed or shocked by behavior due to the historically predictable actions.

I want one. Tonight, the Houston Rockets gave away a collectible Jeremy Lin keychain to the first 5,000 fans at the New Orleans Pelicans game. Very relieved that the eyes are round. Like, I am really happy they went that direction. Thank you Kenda Tires and Houston Rockets for not allowing a slanty eye keychain…

Two Years Ago Today… Jeremy Lin was picked up by the New York Knicks

December 27, 2013 / 0 comments

> Just came across this tweet-fact from Jessica Camerato: Two years ago today, Jeremy Lin was claimed off the waiver wire by the New York Knicks. Crazy. Then in a little over a month from being picked up, Lin would come off the bench with 25 points and 7 assists to lead the Knicks over…

How to turn YouTube videos into GIF files

December 27, 2013 / 0 comments

> I’m ashamed that with all the time I’ve spent laughing at, and enjoying the internet, that I have yet to pay my respect to the internet with a proper GIF. Reason being is the GIF-making process just seemed like it was way too involved. That, and I haven’t found anything to ignite my passion….

Jeremy Lin’s Reverse Layups vs. Memphis Grizzlies (GIF)

December 27, 2013 / 1 comment

Jeremy Lin had 5 field goals last night — two three pointers and three reverse layups — in the Rockets’ win over the Memphis Grizzlies last night. Two of Lin’s reverse layups were just badazzxssssss – we’re talking reverse layups at full-speed, one-handed, acrobatic, adjust on the fly NBA shit.

Last night wasn’t Jeremy Lin’s best individual game statistically, but what he put together on both ends of the court is exactly what the Houston Rockets are looking from the point guard position.

Nina Davuluri wins Miss America, reactions on Twitter

Nina Davuluri is Miss America, but not American according to racist tweets

December 26, 2013 / 0 comments

If I filed blog posts like I filed real files, I’d file this blog post in my tabbed manila folder labeled ‘NS;LX’  which stands for ‘Not Surprised; Low Expectations.’ Even if I didn’t flinch when I heard about all the idiotic tweets about our new Miss America, it’s still worth mentioning how ridiculously low the level…

Justin Bieber, One Direction fans attack Lorde, her boyfriend with racist tweets

December 25, 2013 / 3 comments

You know that footage of teenage girls at a boy band concert where they’re visibly shaking, holding up signs made of glitter, wearing homemade shirts, screaming ‘I love you’ at the top of their lungs, all the while on the verge of fainting from all the adrenaline?

Virgin America’s VX safety video is the best in-flight safety video ever

December 22, 2013 / 3 comments

Getting through a long flight can be tough but luckily for us, airlines are making flight experiences more fun than ever before, but not all. As such, we need more airlines that provide a fun experience from take-off to landing. We need more Virgin Americas and fewer Frontier Airlines. Instead of nickel and diming customers…

I’m a couple years behind on this, but I didn’t have a blog in 2010, so cut me some slack. Here’s a video of Joe Wong killing it at the 2010 Radio and Television Correspondents’ Dinner. Wong goes on for about 15 minutes without breaking his deadpan delivery.

You know Chandler Parsons, right? In addition to being an NBA player for the Houston Rockets and Jeremy Lin’s bestie, Parsons also looks like the 6-foot 10 inch member of One Direction.

Here’s Why SantaCon Sucks

December 16, 2013 / 0 comments

SantaCon stumbled across the East Village and into Brooklyn this past Saturday. The get-dressed-as-santa-barcrawl-thats-it-cum-frat-party started just a couple blocks away from me at Tompkins Square Park. Unlike San Francisco, it’s nice to see the media here is nearly unanimous in its revulsion.
