Reader Brian Lee sent along this music video for Decipher’s “Angry Asian Man.” The video does a wonderful job of capturing the feeling of isolation that I think speaks to anyone who grew up as an outsider.
You can check out more of Decipher’s music at his Band Camp site, download the song, and buy the album.
Rider Sessions continue with Ichigo’s aniki, Kamen Rider Nigo! This time, with color! Two hours compressed into four minutes. The jam in the background is just something I came up with that I thought would help pass the time.
If you just haven’t had the time to watch this last episode of “Walking Dead” on your DVR, I’m going to spoil part of the episode. Glenn, played by Steven Yuen, and Maggie, played by Lauren Cohan, have sex in a drug store. The lead up to the clothes dropping is one of my favorite scenes so far in this season. So awkward. So awesome.
We don’t have many examples in American television of Asian males having sex on screen. Okay, so we don’t actually see Maggie and Glenn doing the sexy, but this counts. Now I haven’t seen absolutely every television show that has featured an Asian male, but the last time I remember seeing an Asian guy having steamy sex on screen was back in 1994 when Russel Wong bagged the Noxzema girl in “Vanishing Son.” I didn’t watch “Lost” so I have no idea if the Korean couple got it on, and I can’t remember if Hiro-kun ever did anything other than blink really hard and raise his hands in “YATAAAAH” on “Heroes.” Also, apparently this past episode of “Glee” that I missed was the sex episode so maybe Harry Shum, Jr.’s character got some on screen sexy time.
Anyway, the point is, we don’t see Asian men getting the sexy in American media all that often. I’d like to think this is more an oversight than a sinister plot by Hollywood to perpetuate the asexual Asian male stereotype. I mean, honestly, there aren’t that many Asian males in American cinema and telly to begin with. So the ratio of sex scenes to characters might actually be accurate. It’s just that there are more non-Asian characters in film and TV so we get to see them have more of the sexies.
My hope is that if they survive long enough, we’ll get to see more of naked Glenn and Maggie time. After all, once you go yellow… um… you want to… erm… bang the fellow? Eh? Eh? Whatever. She like-a the sauce and wants more! So there!
Just some advice and ideas about creating portfolios to show off your best work.
Holy shit, edits! The first part of the video is out of focus because apparently, I’m a damn moron. But no worries. A death cough forced me to actually edit clips together so the rest of it is in glorious focus!
