I am strangely turned on.
I ask all my AS brethren to put wax in their ears and tie me to the mast.
I’m not sure how big this story has been outside Australia, but Johnny Depp and Amber Heard’s bizarre apology video has been all over the news and the interwebs here for the past few days, and it’s certainly easy to see why. Here’s a “behind the scenes” video courtesy of Australia’s number one YouTube comedian, Natalie Tran.
We have been posting a few Asian based TV shows recently and adcmelb pointed out this one that some of you may like…
Bubalabobo has been watching a bit of TV lately and came across this gem from Korea.
The above clip from the pilot episode of the short-lived sitcom All-American Girl, features a then-25 year-old Margaret Cho and a then-40-year-old Jodi Long, as her mother. The show lasted all of 19 episodes from 1994-1995 and used the “plight-of-the-Asian-family-torn-between-two-cultures-and-coping-with-life-in-the-US” formula. The storyline and its characters were based on Margaret’s stand-up act (before it relied on profanity and revolved around the word “lesbian”) but unlike Margaret’s early routines, All-American Girl needed the laugh track to get laughs.
As it doesn’t feature any Asian girls this video is technically off-topic, but if you want to be able to continue to enjoy sites like Asian Sirens at the same speed you always have, net neutrality is very much on topic. I can barely afford to run AS as it is, so I certainly won’t be able to pay extortion money to US cable operators to maintain its present speed. So if you’re one of our vast majority of US readers, stand up for a continued free, fair and open internet!
Even though she checked “no” for “shoots nudes” at her Model Mayhem page, Korean-American actress Lena Young (aka Lena Hwang) sure made an exception for her role as the ditzy “Bibi” in this year’s comedy/horror The Coed and the Zombie Stoner ….or perhaps she was referring to only still photography.
Above (at 1:34) we see Bibi/Lena and company streaking through their college campus, unaware that a good portion of the student body have become zombies. However, the girls soon find out what it takes to sedate and subdue the flesh-eaters and make their way to safety.
Another notable Asian lady in the cast, albeit in a much smaller and fully-clothed role, is veteran B-movie actress Christine Nguyen (first featured at the old site here and then shortly thereafter here), who plays the university librarian.
I wouldn’t put The Coed and the Zombie Stoner at the top of my “to watch” list for Halloween horror, as it leans way more toward comedy than it does horror, and lame sophomoric comedy at that, but due to its gratuitous nudity and Jamie Noel as a wonderfully foul-mouthed sorority president named Bambi, it’s worth a look.
