Asian Cultural Learning

leave a comment »

If you know Cantonese, you know that the title phrase of the book has a certain negative connotation that comes with it.. But, it’s probably not what you think it is. It is in fact a pamphlet from 1965 teaching people of the great Republic China how to shoot down air planes. Or, “How To Shoot Airplanes.” Try asking your Cantonese friend (preferably a guy) how to say “how to shoot airplane” in Cantonese and you’ll understand the ironic humor in this piece. Of course there’s also culture reflection and all that…

Speaking of cultural reflection, we can’t leave out our glorious rising Sun of the East: Japan. Technologically advanced, culturally dominant, and extremely weird! Do take notes from their latest Wii warned ya manual. Don’t say wii didn’t warn ya!

A Page From Paris’ Handbook

Yea, it’s been awhile. Just thought I’d stop by and say hello. Time sure flies. While I’m still trying to re-consolidate my old ideas, the rest of the world has been moving along quite comfortably. (Ahem: clickly, click, click, click). Well, I’ve got nothing more. Just thought I’d get back into the game with some bangs. And, quite frankly, I can’t think of a better (and worse) way to start December.

Lady Sovereign

with one comment

Lady Sovereign is the latest protégé of JayZ. Imported from England, she’s also known as “the biggest midget in the game.” Yup, you heard me right, a British girl rapper. Her style? If you ask me, she’s kind of like Eminem for chicks. Her album officially drops next week. But thanks to the Internet, you can get it now from iTune. If you’re into Hip-hop and juvenile humor (which I am), I think you’ll enjoy this one. Love Her or Hate Her? You decide:

Scaring Kids With Photo Booth

leave a comment »

If you have iLife06 and iSight for your Mac, you can help your children to some cool Halloween photography. All you need is PhotoBooth and a dark room. Simply select the X Ray effect, and get ready to scare the bujeevus outta yourselves. I recommend showing your kids some of these before bedtime. Sweedreams ensured. 😉

Ms. Dewey – The Search Engine

Haha.. this has got to be my favorite search engine all time. Oh, it’s totally useless. But, you’ll be missing the point if you even care about its search result. Go a head try a search or two. I highly recommend “yo mama.” You’ll see…
