Burmese food. The next frontier. Know any Burmese people? I'm sure you can't say you do. Recently watching Rambo 4, and seeing Stallone decimate an entire pack of Burmese soldiers in crude horrific form, made my hungry. What sounds like a messed up country if you do any reading, especially with the victor of an election, Read more
This is what the softball picnic throw the ball around and meet each other day looked like. My cousin Mike and Eugenia came later on. The field was taken, but we only had three people, so it became a sit and watch people play tennis, talk about the final four, and eat... That's Bill (he looks like he ate something sour) and Big J. We had pizza, super...Read more
Today, I was filmed for a documentary on Vincent Chin. You might be thinking, (if you know about Vincent Chin) that there already was a documentary years ago by the duo of Renee Tajima Pena and Christine Choy called, Who Killed Vincent Chin?It's a strange title come to think of it, since you do know who killed him literally, but figuratively, who killed him? Wa...Read more

At Fred Segal in Santa Monica is the debuting of the Damien Hirst $ Warhol $ Levi's collab gear. I wouldn't normally jump at seeing this, but I get a different perspective riding with Dr Romanelli, since he's involved in apparel, sometimes hardcore designer style and sometimes artistic. See that box on the left, when you buy some denim, it comes ...Read more
Hope the others are okay that there's a robot in the flyer. We've been on panels in the past, and sometimes, GR becomes the bad guy, for a bunch of reasons like this flyer which may be leaning our way. But sharing is caring, right? The robot is all about shared love. A bit hard to read, since it's a little small. Maybe we'll unlock ...Read more
The new king of pop? I interviewed Rain this morning. It's always tough with interpreters, especially ones in Korean. Why is that? I think we've had issues with translators in Korean since day one. Either way, Rain seems like a good guy, on a good track, and we'll see in which direction he's going rather quickly.
We're doing more talks.
First I'm on a panel discussion at UCLA. THURSDAY April 10, 2008 Moore Hall, Room 100 7-9:30 for SubVerses at UCLA.
Second, there's one where Martin and I will be in Chicago on WEDNESDAY April 23, 2008 at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Asian American Resource and Cultural Center (MC 203).<...Read more
In the Japan Times, one of the gnarliest articles got published on sunday. Imagine, the killing of 2500 dolphins captured on film and put into a documentary. It's going to happen. Or, better yet, it's happening. A crew literally hid cameras in fake rocks, placed underwater mics, and hid for hours at a time in camo gear to film the killing of dolphins to the point ...Read more
