Hell Yes To This Documentary Series About Cosplaying!

How Cool!

YouTuber Todd Kenreck of Invader Boom has begun a documentary series on cosplaying called “Cosplay Boom,” the first episode of which has been released and future episodes of which depend on Kenreck’s fundraising efforts through crowd-funding site Patreon.

The first episode is really, really cool: It’s titled “Origins” and it’s a series of interviews with cosplayers and costumers on the subject of how they got into cosplay. You’d think that the biggest trend in their answers would be “I’m nerdy,” but really it’s more “This is so much fun!” There are people who cosplay because they admire the characters they’re cosplaying, and there are people who just like to dress up in costumes. (The gentleman dressed as Carl Fredericksen from “Up” is 100 percent my favorite.) Keep reading »

“The Daily Show” Solves Catcalling With A Few Simple Suggestions

"Act Like A Psycho" Is My Favorite

“The Daily Show”’s Jessica Williams has figured out how to stop catcallers from harassing you on the street and had a few suggestions for women, including changing our route to work, acting “like a psycho,” and these three rules: “Rule number one: Always wear oversized headphones. Rule number two: Master the fake phone call. Rule number three: Avoid eye contact at all costs.”

I mean, that probably won’t stop the catcallers anyway, but it’s worth a shot. On another note, when is Jessica Williams getting her own show? She’s awesome. [The Daily Show]

Give me a holler on Twitter.

When I started writing my memoir, Good Chinese Wife: A Love Affair With China Gone Wrong, I began networking with authors who wrote books set in Asia. I imagined developing solid friendships with a group of supportive authors. There’s a Chinese saying, huxiang bangzhu. It means “mutually helping one another.” That’s what I pictured.

Fast-forward six years. My memoir was being published and I arranged for review copies to be sent to authors I’ve gotten to know through social networking or in person. I knew I couldn’t expect rave reviews just because we have a connection or because I had given their books five stars on Amazon and Goodreads. But for the most part, I had been extremely pleased with the feedback.

Well, except for this one guy. Keep reading »
