Cool, comfortable headphones are hard to find. You have ones that are really good to use but ugly to look at, or vice versa.
In comes earbuds by Skunk Juice!
Taking you from the streets of Vietnam to the beautiful 2012 Saja Bridal Wedding collection, this week’s Happenings cater to the feminine side with a touch of war hero and a sprinkle of underground hip-hop. I think I’ll be wearing a white dress to the movies.

“High fashion. Fierce performances. One unforgettable night.” That really sums it up. It’s cliché, but I honestly had the time of my life at Glamorama, which was held at the Orpheum Theatre downtown on the night of September 23. I mean, fashion shows by nine established brands, performances by none other than Far East Movement and Cee Lo Green plus various dance routines – what more could I ask for? It’s one of the biggest events I’ve been to so far with the hottest celebrities and it’s all for a good cause! There really is no better way to use entertainment as a way to give back to such an important cause such as AIDS and HIV services, prevention, education and research.

Being fun-employed is fun up until you realize that every time you go out, you’re dipping into the precious little life savings that you’ve managed to save up (god knows how) and you’re still not employed. Boo.
For those of you who are on a tight budget, I’ve put together a quick list of ways to enjoy the last bit Indian summer without spending too much.
Tan on your driveway.
Sometimes, the beach is too far. And the gas money it takes to get there should be saved towards something important, like new headshots because yours make you look like an overweight preteen. And your friends might be too busy doing important things like working and making money to hang out with you. So why not work on getting some color back into your pasty self? Grab a towel and last year’s suntan oil and lay out on your driveway. Give it a couple of days, and you’ll be a nice buttery brown color. That’ll show your friends to neglect you.
Took a great shot last Christmas? Love to draw, doodle or Photoshop? We wanna see your work in Audrey!
What does “winter” or “the holidays” mean to you? Maybe snow angels? Maybe partying it up on New Year’s? Maybe all the resolutions you failed to keep in 2010?
Regardless, we want to see it! We want to see what “winter” (specifically, December through February) means to you, whether it’s the holidays, New Year’s, even Valentine’s Day! You just might get your photo or artwork into the next issue of Audrey Magazine!
Submit your photos that in some way reflect the Asian American experience as well as the theme of “winter.” You don’t have to be a pro, so submit your photo by October 17, 2011. To submit, please see instructions below.
We’re looking forward to seeing your work!
Images should be in digital jpeg format, at least 300 dpi resolution and 2400 pixels on the long end.

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark may be a bust (the newly revamped version pretty much does away with Arachne, the role Filipina American actress T.V. Carpio was to play), but we’re betting the new Sony Pictures film The Amazing Spider-Man, starring cutie Andrew Garfield and Bollywood actor Irrfan Khan as Nels Van Adder, the Proto-Goblin, is gonna be the bomb. You’ll have to wait till next summer to see it, but check out the teaser trailer now.
DailyCandy’s new talking head isn’t just any head; it’s the lovely noggin of South Korean-born American television news correspondent, SuChin Pak. DailyCandy, an email Newsletter based in New York, has recently hired Pak to be their woman about the town and on TV.
Although she had to undergo a grueling interview for the position, for most viewers, Pak won’t need much of an introduction. Pak is easily recognizable from her frequent appearances on MTV as part of their news team. She also appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show in 2007 to discuss her struggles with confidence and beauty issues relating to being an Asian American woman.
Pak’s interests and knowledge base are seemingly vast, as she is the founder of Hester Street Fair, an alfresco small biz bazaar in New York’s Lower East Side, as well as the host for the National Constitution Center’s “The Exchange,” a program where high school students to discuss their views on relevant constitutional issues.
Check out Suchin’s charming job interview here.
Lucky for Pak; her extensive resume, Mad Men aspirations, and charming head shot were just enough to land her a position with DailyCandy. Unfortunately for us, with her experience and sweetness, it looks like we’ll be making a trip to the dentist sometime soon.
