I finally got my Steve Young throwback!

Got it!

Mitchell & Ness reached 100K Facebook likes and celebrated with a 24-hour sale. All people who are registered on the site can get jerseys for $100.

There was only one jersey I have always wanted from them. I had bought jerseys from them discounted before, but this one was a rare find.

Now I have it. Now I can smile.

This Steve Young jersey either was never on sale or not even available for sale. But I got it now. Yes!

NBC’s Crisis and their confusing portrayal of Chinese people

I will give them this prop: Chinese people watching Chinese TV. Although I can’t understand why they would hire someone who doesn’t know Chinese to speak Chinese. That sounds like the Cantonese of someone who doesn’t know the language and tried to say something they read off a script. Horrible.

The mom got it. The husband, I don’t know. His English is bad, which is good I guess. But the wife’s English is too perfect. Like that’s the only language she really knows.

What a shame.

What a very exhausting weekend of fun

On Friday I met with some outta town friends for a late dinner. We tried out this Tokyo fried chicken spot. Let me tell, you that place is good.

Following, we met up with other friends for some boba. Now that was fun.

The very next day, we spent 14 hours at Disneyland and California Adventure. I had never been to California before but it was a blast. I didn’t get a chance to see it all but I love that place. Too bad I don’t think I’d be going back there anytime soon. But it sure was memorable.

Life’s Good

Samuel:

Something I wrote. It means a lot to me to remember that Life’s Good with God.

The perfect slogan.

LG Electronics Inc. years ago adopted the backronym slogan “Life’s Good” and I’ve actually been a fan of it. It’s a simple slogan and it’s memorable. Everytime I see their commercial with their smiley face logo, that slogan pops into my mind. It really sticks to me.

Life is good.

It’s a hard concept to grasp at times. After all, there is a bunch of things that happen in life that aren’t good. Job losses, broken relationships, car accidents, bills to pay and food to buy. There are so many other things that happen that make you think that life isn’t good. We worry and we stress out about it. Can we not have these bad things happen to us?

Jesus reminded us about these tough times and told us about the good things in life.

Matthew 6:25-33 (NIV)

‘Crisis’ getting canceled was exactly what I expected

Goodbye.

I haven’t been paying attention to the news so I only found out today that “Crisis” has been canceled. Too bad. I thought they had a great pilot.

But of course, as I continued to watch the show I was feeling that it wasn’t going anywhere. Plus, it almost became a chore to watch and continue on. It just kept dragging and ultimately, they took too long to get anything going and it died.

It was a good storyline with real potential. But if you aren’t wowing people in every episode, they won’t tune in. They didn’t and this died. It was bound to happen.

But I can at least put to rest my frustration with privileged white people. So many spoiled teens in the movie, I kind of wanted them to stay kidnapped forever.

‘Fresh Off the Boat” may not last more than one season

The show covers lots of truths of a typical Asian family living in America. It looks funny. It appears like something fun.

It won’t last.

Sadly in America, Asian people don’t make it in the entertainment world. We are a novelty, something that we laugh about and then forget. No matter how great this show could be, it’s stereotypes left and right and before you know it, it’s gone.

I want to see this show succeed, but I don’t see it lasting more than a season. It’s just the way White America views us. Oh well, nice try.

Got so much on my plate

I’m trying to figure out if I got time for things now. I got this AAJA convention going on in mid June. Also at the same weekend, it’s the BTTF screening with some of the actors.

I want to go to Cooperstown for induction weekend, but I don’t know if that will happen.

Also, I got two concerts I am going to: Paul McCartney (August) and Fleetwood Mac (December) both back in the Bay.

Then also I got a wedding to go to this weekend and I plan to do a lot more stuff with church too.

I can handle it, but I hate so much uncertainty in the future and not something solid saying that I can and will have time for it. But hey, who knows what happens in the future now? I just know I got a lot I wanna do and I have to make sure I save up my time and money for it.
