Hmmmm…..

Here’s the U.S. preview of the next week’s episode of Heroes:

Now here’s the Canadian preview:

Hmmm…

Which one would you rather watch? I also wonder does this illustrate in terms of the difference between Americans and Canadians (cuz I love grand sweeping generalizations)

What can I say? My people are good at winning at reality shows. HOLLA!

Dat Phan – Last Comic Standing Season 1 —– America tasted some Viet love and couldn’t go back…

Chloe Dao – Project Runway Season 2. I absolutely love her! Maybe it’s also because I love Project Runway….

Another reason why I love Chloe Dao:

On the same season of Project Runway, there was another Vietnamese contestant, Guadalupe Vidal. I kind of secretly wanted them to hang out and wig the other contestants out by speaking Vietnamese…..However, Guadalupe didn’t win. Would she have won if she wasn’t competing another Vietnamese person, since we as a people DOMINATE this shit?

 

 

Er…I dunno…she’s kind of crazy

Hung Huynh – Top Chef Season 3. I haven’t really watched this show….but hey, look at that faux hawk!

Granted one could make the argument that these wins just demonstrate that Vietnamese people in America have a history of working in restaurants, and in the garment industry. If so, give me a reality show about doing nails, and let the wins continue!

But finally, what’s better than winning a reality show? Having your own. Let me give some props to the ridiculous awesomeness that is Tila Tequila…

A Return to Form

October 19, 2007

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven’t been blogging a lot lately. I have been working on applications. It wasn’t really that I was working so hard that I didn’t have the time. In fact, if anything I made great heights in wasting time. However, what it did do was make me feel guilty about blogging, or any activity that takes brain cells. But now I’m back! I’m trying to start up a video blog called “Absoludicrous”. I got the wordpress domain on impulse after I watched a video of Mr. T coining that fabulous word. I wasn’t really planning on having another one, but now I feel guilty if I let such a fun domain go to waste.

About National Day of Panhandling for Reparations:

OCTOBER 10, 2007. People of all races across the United States will take an hour or two to sit in a range of locations in our communities: outside of businesses, libraries, museums, art galleries, or on busy street corners. We will wear signs reminding passersby of the history of slavery in the United States. We will collect reparations in the form of money from white Americans for the enslavement and free-labor of Africans and African Americans during the establishment and economic rise of this country. This money will be immediately paid out to black passersby. Both parties will be offered a receipt. We will do this to offer a convenient opportunity for American citizens to acknowledge, apologize and compensate the unpaid labor of African Americans, the travesty of slavery, and the rightful due of reparations.

This work began in 2003 as a street performance by artist damali ayo. In living flag: panhandling for reparations damali panhandled for reparations on the streets of various cities across the United States. In each of her locations she engaged a steady flow of reparations received and paid. October 10, 2007 marks the first annual National Day of Panhandling for Reparations where others join damali in this performance.
