Hello there [|Thursday: 19th @ 2:04pm|]

MTV contacted me and wanted me to let you guys know that they're casting for a new episode of True Life: I'm Clashing with my Parents. Apparently they want to focus on the Asian American community and would like to hear from people about their experiences with immigrant parents and your "struggle" between your parents' culture and American culture.

Part of the message says:
"I saw you are the moderator of Are You Chink and I was wondering if you could message this to members, or post. A lot of times when we post people don't take it seriously, and think it is Spam. We are really interested in the Asian community, and hope to feature someone who is going through this situation. Our main goal of the show is to resolve the conflict between them and their parents, and have both sides understand each other better. We are looking for US residents between the ages of 16-24."

Any one of you who has heard of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog might have heard of something they did for the DVD called Commentary! The Musical. Well, they uploaded it on The Tube Of You and one of the tracks is:

This should teach people not to go putting up stuff in any language (without getting a translation first) just because they reckon it looks "cool".

Witchdoctors and Assassins 2008 A.D. (NYC APIA Open Mic) [|Thursday: 2nd @ 9:03pm|]

thedeathparade
October 10th and 24th @ The Asian American Writers' Workshop
6:30 - 8:30 P.M.

A new reading series and open mic for Asian/Pacific Islander-American youth (from middle-school to recent college graduates) at The Asian American Writers' Workshop.

***PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE ARE TWO SHOWS: October 10th AND 24th, 2008***


Who are the Witchdoctors and Assassins?

As bodies that have witnessed onslaughts of violence and trauma from
supremacist regimes, we are sounding out for decolonization. We refuse
to play the “victim” in the countless oppressions against us. If you
ask us who we are, we say we are “witchdoctors and assassins”*. By
assuming these roles, we are demonstrating our creative resistance
against the traditional act of “performing” our race, gender, class,
sexual identity, and beyond on the world stage.

We are Axis of Praxis, your resident arts collective, coming to you
with our interpretation of the revolutionary theater. As witchdoctors
and assassins, we will be actors in the conjuring and dispelling of
the violence and trauma that we have witnessed in its most personal
and destructive forms. We invite you not to become only spectators in
this process, but participants with your own stories and revolutionary
fervor. Join us as we don our masks in performance, become puppets,
and transcend the stage with an impromptu dance party. See that the
instances of oppression you have witnessed in your lives on a daily
basis is no less or disconnected from the headlines of Asian America—
whatever and however that body means to us and to you.

* Leroi Jones/ Amiri Baraka. The Revolutionary Theatre. Liberator,
1965

Take the N, R, Q, W, F, B, D, V trains to 34th Street/Herald Square

Hello! [|Wednesday: 9th @ 4:28pm|]

Hey! This is my first post here.

I wanted to tell you all about this MMORPG I've been playing and hopefully convince some of you to hop online and start playing with me.  If we can get enough people we can form a guild or something.

The game is called Fiesta and you can download it for free from the game's official website.  Even though it's a free MMO, it's actually very good, with tons of quests, raid dungeons, and pvp maps.  The GMs also run different events on each server every day of the week, so there's always something to do in the game.

If anyone's gonna play, be sure to let me know here and post your in game name and server.

I play on the Epith server with a cleric named Pfhor.

And I've put some screenshots behind the cut below.

The Olympics has become a political event, official [|Friday: 11th @ 11:41am|]

Sod the athletes, let's make this whole thing a political sideshow!

Google search: "Paris torch"

...and people thought the Olympics is supposed to be about sports or something

(Next up: protesters assaulting handicapped torch bearers, news at 11)

Michael Cho [|Tuesday: 8th @ 2:09pm|]

I used to live in the area and now am currently living outside the country so I'm getting my info off the net; so sorry if I come off as a bit abrasive.

So here I go...

Have they done an autopsy to see if Cho was on any sort of medication/drugs/alcohol to cause him behave differently?

Did gang activity in the area cause the officers to behave more aggressively?

Is the La Habra PD equipped with non-lethal weapons?

Sorry I'm just sick of reading stuff off the net that say how great of a guy Cho was and other personal information that would not be known by the officers involved at the time. Perhaps he was, but Jeffery Dhalmer was reported to be a "nice" guy as well. While I agree that the amount of shots fired was excessive, and perhaps a first shot wasn't even warranted, but the way the story's being told is too one-sided. Maybe I'm wrong for being so indignant, just want some clarity.
