Picking up at nearly 3 million views, this video from Los Angeles based chiropractor Ryan Lee has gone viral over the past couple of days on the internet. While we're sure Ryan was very intentional on marketing the services of his clinic, we can't help but wonder if he bothered to show anyone else this video before allowing it to go live on the YouTube. In fact, he appears just tad bit creepy and this video might even turn away customers. But then again, he is receiving a lot of public attention (although we're sure he wasn't expecting this kind). Check out the video below!

Hands down, my favorite editorial of the year so far. i-D once again, never disappoints. Click on for the rest of the editorial!
One of the biggest debates concerning Asian culture has been how Asian parent's raise their children. The phrase "strict Asian parent" has become a well-known stereotype and yet many of us can find some truth in this. It is said that Asians pride themselves in their academic achievements and are generally pushed towards a successful career. But what is the price for this success? How often do we hear of Asians who are allowed only a limited social life and pushed towards their books instead. How many times have we heard the story of an Asian forced to pursue a career their parents want...
Last season, Fox had very few successful outcomes. While we had high hopes for their newest multi-camera comedy Dads, the excitement may be short-lived. The comedy stars Seth Green and Giovanni Ribisi playing childhood friends (now in their thirties) whose lives are flipped upside down when their father's decide to move in with them. The cast will also include one of our favorites, Brenda Song. Unfortunately, the pilot preview fell short of our expectations. Aside from a few laughs, the preview began sounding problematic with Brenda Song forced into a schoolgirl outfit and performing a...
It is said that people become brutally honest during times of intoxication. We allow ourselves to feel heartbreak that we try to hold back, we tell people the things we are most afraid to admit, we even make mistakes- lots of them. Watch Wong Fru's most recent short "To Those Nights" as a reminder that the heart and mind wander to interesting places when under the influence of alcohol.
You’ve got questions — we’ve got answers! Psychotherapist Meme Rhee addresses your most pressing dilemmas, including long distance relationships and Facebook love etiquette. (Got a conundrum? Email us at Editor@Audreymagazine.com)
I’m in a long-distance relationship with someone from across the world. Recently, I’ve been so busy that I don’t really have the time to think about him or have the motivation to call him. Is it possible to be too busy that you temporarily put him aside or are those signs that I’m losing feelings for him? — Fading Away
Psychotherapist Meme Rhee answers: Healthy relationships require the attention and effort of each individual. In an ideal partnership, that exchange is balanced. However, to achieve a level of emotional congruency and patience with your partner is not easy, and it’s particularly difficult when you are geographically challenged. It is possible that you are too busy to think about him, and it’s also possible that it’s too painful to think about him and by “putting him aside” you’ve found a way to manage your feelings without feeling too inconvenienced by them. Because, let’s face it, who wants to pine for someone on the other side of the world?

We all know Asian Americans have musical talent. Have you heard Joseph Vincent croon a tune or Clara C bang on her tambourine? It must have been ingrained into us since the days of yore when our parents
forced piano lessons down our throats gently encouraged us to play piano.

We know there’s a story inside all of us just itching to get out.
The perfect excuse to sit around and daydream all day, calling it “work” has just arrived: Hyphen magazine and the Asian American Writer’s Workshop are presenting their annual Asian American Short Story Contest – the only national, pan-Asian American writing competition of its kind.
April is here, which means it’s that time again … HIFF is back.
HIFF, short for Hawaii International Film Festival, showcases films from around the world twice a year here in the islands. April marks the 2011 Spring Showcase, hosted at the Regal Dole Cannery Stadium. The film festival runs for a week (April 1-7) and boasts a wide range of foreign films from Australia to Turkey. And due to the high residency of Asian Americans here in Hawaii, there is usually a higher demand for films from Asia. There is a total of 29 films being showcased for the spring festival, and 16 of those films are from Asian countries (Korea, China, Japan,Thailand and India).
It’s been almost a month, but don’t forget — Japan still needs our help. And Japan Society, the 104-year-old nonprofit bringing together Japan and U.S. culture, art and issues together into one multidisciplinary hub, is putting on Concert for Japan, a day-long marathon concert on Saturday, April 9 to benefit disaster victims in Japan (including performances by super-hip Japanese girl band The Suzan). Every last dime from the proceeds go to the Society’s Japan Earthquake relief fund, which has collected more than $1.5 million as of March 21.

To begin your Eco-Fashion journey, you gotta start with the basics: your undies! Now more than ever, there are many labels within the industry promoting eco-conscious underwear and lounge wear. Before, it was a bland mix of neutral colors and hardly a selection. Now, Eco-Fashion has become popular and you can find all kinds of style within the lounge wear and intimates collections. Don’t know where to look? Here are my top three favorites to keeping it eco-friendly and stylish.
Tucked away behind an art gallery in the heart of Beverly Hills, a block away from famed Rodeo Drive, Nelson J Salon is a hive of activity. Bleached blondes going blonder, stylists and clients gossiping away (about anyone we know?), and owner and master colorist Nelson Chan is hustling from one chair to another, his blonde mop and black glasses making him instantly recognizable.
He takes one look at my hair and instructs an employee, “Shampoo. The rosemary mint.” I’ve been neglecting my hair of late, immobilized with indecision. Shorter? Straighter? Colored? Cropped? Needless to say, I need the calming yet invigorating deep cleansing shampoo by Aveda (most likely to get out the argan oil I’ve been using lately in a vain attempt to inject some life into my lackluster locks).
What is it about spring fashion this year? Everything is so colorful, so bright, so … downright cheery! I’m feeling positively ebullient (yes, me, the glass-is-half-empty queen), so in homage to one of my favorite feel-good movies, The Sound of Music, here are a few of my favorite things right now.
