“Apple has refined the iPhone and iPad designs almost to the point that it’s difficult to think of how they’d meaningfully improve them without major underlying changes (such as a breakthrough in storage or battery technology). But the software is just getting started.”—
I’m only nominally technologically inclined—but the stuff that I’m able to do with music due to the gateways that the Apple OS and iOS has opened is incredible to me…and that this is really only the beginning is amazing to me.
You know, it’s 11:15pm on a Sunday, and all I really want to do is talk because I’ve spent the entire day on my own, but it’s like “Dude, that’s ridiculous. No one wants to listen to you talk about how everyone but you is a douchebag, because really, that makes you sound like a douchebag.” So, instead, I’m posting this song because it was mentioned in another post, and it’s my way of say “Yeah, I heard that.”
You know a good way to ensure that I go out and have a good time and not drink too much? Invite me to a party in Downtown Fullerton. I like whiskey, but I don’t like DTF’s angry-ass cops. I swear, it’s only bar patrol—but there’s usually one or two cops out there in partial SWAT gear. I shit you not.
When I was a kid, I fucking loved the This Is How We Do It album—I had it on cassette tape. I used to listen to it in the car with my mom. Shit always get awkward when this song came on…I would usually try to hit the fast-forward button as soon as I could.
It has become increasingly apparent that being an Asian-American male in Orange County is equivalent to sitting on the lowest rung of the ladder of sexual appeal in America.
Look. I know the stereotypes: Oh, I must have a small penis. I must think of women as being less than me. All I know is math and science.
As far as Orange County goes, you only appeal to women if you look like something they’ve seen on television or in the movies.
You don’t see people like me in either of those mediums…not unless you’re actively seeking out Far East Movement music videos or trying to find copies of The Debut on DVD.
(In fact, the last time you saw a Filipino dude on TV or in the movies is when you saw Hook or City Guys on the small screen. Right? Maybe you flipped on America’s Best Dance Crew?)
Anyway, the fact is that it is near-impossible for me to find a woman that finds me attractive out here. Also, the answer isn’t "You should go out to Irvine."
You fundamentalist assholes realize that an angel loses its wings every time you try to hook me up with an Asian girl just because I happen to be Asian, too. Right? I don’t see you fuckers trying to hook me up with an Irish girl.
Yes, I’m Irish, too.
Prove me wrong. I fucking implore you.
Prove to me that being an Asian-American male isn’t akin being a sexual leper. Or does that whole archetype of the nerdy, clumsy Asian seem to ring true to you?
Give me examples. Please. Reinstill some faith in humanity for me.
Otherwise, I’ve been taught that being Asian is something I’m supposed to be ashamed of in a society that superficially tries to tell me I’m supposed to be proud of my individuality.
