Memorial Day is around the corner and people everywhere are rejoicing. Why? We get a three-day weekend. Now that you have some time, how about spending your weekend doing the things you always put off? Admit it, you have a giant list of things that you never seem to find time for. Here's what we have in mind: 1. Work Out. Every January, gyms are filled with people motivated to begin their new years resolution. By May, this motivation has usually died.
Diary from Cannes 2013: Day 4 May 19, 2013: The sun came out on Sunday, and so did... every single Asian film that I wanted to see. What I got used to very quickly as a first time Cannes attendee (with a low-priority press badge) is that every single day, I'd look through the list of hundreds of press screenings, competition screenings, and market screenings; plan my day in at least three different formations amidst much confusion and indecision; and then when I finally decided on my schedule, at least a third of it would fall through for some reason or another (screening full, interview...
A new reality show, Roll Models, is coming your way. From the producers of K-TOWN, this show takes a deeper look into the Asian American youth culture of Southern California. In particular, Roll Models focuses on the world of import cars, modeling, and go-go dancers. The show will feature well-known import models such as Nikita Esco, Michelle Yee, Gina Darling, Beckie Joon, Danielle Lo and Melyssa Grace. We are told to expect a lot of drama from these strong-willed girls who are not afraid to get in your face. Already, the show has gathered quite the buzz and people have been more than...
The release of The Hangover Part III couldn't have come at a better time. We're due for another Daily SHAG (Smoking Hot Asian Guy) and who better than The Hangover's Peter Jae (you may remember him from one of our favorite series K-Town Cowboys!), who worked as a stuntman for the film. Peter is also currently working on stunts for the upcoming Michael Mann film, Cyber, starring Chris Hemsworth, Viola Davis, Tang Wei, and Wang Lee Hom. If you happen to be a fan of abs, you're in for a treat! Click on for more pics:
Technology has come quite a long way. Just ten years ago, texting was not a main form of communication, we had to actually remember phone numbers, and we went to the library to get information. Now, we live in a society of smart phones, gps systems, and social media. But apparently, we're not stopping there. Trying to make its way to the top of innovative technology is the process of doll cloning. Said to be perfect for the "tech-savvy ego-fetishist" individual, Japan's Clone Factory specializes in 3-D printing of human faces. For the price of $1300, you can now place your face onto a doll's...
This week, Forbes Magazine published their list of The World's 100 Most Powerful Women 2013, their annual list of the impactful women from seven categories: billionaires, business, lifestyle (including entertainment and fashion), media, nonprofits and NGOs, politics and technology.

Its no secret that we still face racism today. Every time I start to believe that I live in my ideal/equal world, acts like this bring me back to the reality that we still have a long way to go. From men making videos discussing why they hate Asians to teenagers making instagrams titled Asiansareugly, racism continues to use social media for its brutality.
Recently, tons of Twitter users have spoken against the Asian community after watching the film Olympus Has Fallen. Now I understand anger towards an antagonist of a film, but this is no excuse for attacking an entire community. Why on earth are you going to perpetuate hate for all Asians just because you see a film where the villains happen to be Asian? If you see an antagonist that is Caucasian, do all Caucasians suddenly deserve your hatred as well?
We’ve witnessed this too many times in real life to simply take this as a joke. You may say we’re overreacting and being sensitive, but trust me- if you were told that someone wants to physically harm and/or kill you simply because of the way you looked, you’d be angry too.

Not gonna lie- we had quite the laugh with this Fung Brother’s short. Using the dishwasher as storage? A drawer full of plastic bags? Yup, they definitely nailed some of our own parents’ habits.

What comes to your head when you hear the words 3rd Line Butterfly? Most likely, you’ll think something associated with elegance and beauty. You’re correct, but if you are unfamiliar with them, 3rd Line Butterfly is more than just a pretty name—they’re a band that packs a punch and leaves you in its trance.
The South Korean rock quartet—consisting of lead vocalist and guitarist Nahm Sang-ah, guitarist Sung Kiwan, bassist Kim Nam-Yoon, and drummer Seo Hyun-jung—has been an indie music mainstay since their debut in 2000. They formed the year before when friends and musical collaborators Nahm and Sung were dismissed from their former bands and Sung called up Nahm to make some new music. Since then, 3rd Line Butterfly has released four full-length studio albums, an English-language album, and one EP and has toured North America as part of the Seoulsonic tour, which included performances at SXSW.
In support of their latest studio album Dreamtalk, which was released in October and won multiple 2013 Korean Music Awards including Album of the Year, 3rd Line Butterfly performed in front of international audiences, including the second night of San Francisco Music Matters Asia where we caught up with them.
