Farewell My Sweet, BellyButtons!

New youtube video!!!
Also today is my 8th day in a row of going to the gym! YAY new years resolutions! Making a change for the better!
And, today, I ended my love affair with Tortellini…

Hazard Potential

I wrote something a little bit more serious for youtube this week… I’ve just been super frustrated by all of the offensive language I hear on a daily basis, and sometimes it is really difficult to stand up to everyone and be labelled “the crazy, angry feminist” or just the “feminist killjoy,” overreacting again! (not that I don’t do it, I just don’t have the guts to all the time). Plus it can be exhausting, and quite disheartening. So, I thought maybe in this format I could reach out to a wider audience. I just want people to realize that words do hurt people. And words can also make a hell of a difference… who knows, maybe these words will influence somebody… or even a few somebodies. (fingers crossed!)

‘way too asian’ music video!

I almost forgot to include this masterpiece!

I had the priviledge of being in two of Ray Hsu’s incredibly awesome and boundary breaking courses while at UBC: Asian Canadian Writing and Writers Without Boarders. Both of which I took along side the talented and hillarious Tetsuro Shigematsu- and so while in Hsu’s Asian Canadian course we all combined forces and created this epic music video as a response to Maclean’s extremely offensive “too Asian” article.

Fiddling with “The Knackers” (2010)

Here is footage from a show I played with the Knackers (a Vancouver based Celtic Rock band). I fiddled with them for about 4-5 months in 2010… but then I just got way too busy with Uni life 😦 They sure are an awesome bunch though!

Performing with the Knackers

I am definitely interested in playing in a band again, and really committing to it this time around now that I am done my BFA!
