Two big things in my life

First of all, Prince music is back as they are set to do a Grammy tribute to him tonight.

Second of all, I finally am letting go of my beef with Ms. Korte. I am mailing this and it is closure.

I debate Dallas Braden about Tom Brady’s swag

As an A’s fan, Dallas Braden has always been one of the cool guys. He represented Stockton. Hew threw a perfect game. He hates A-Rod. All good with me.

But he also has some opinions.Ā Whatever, not a big deal. But today, he had an interesting opinion that I disagreed with.

‘A Walk to Remember the Musical’ was exceptionally glorious

Last night I attended A Walk to Remember the Musical. I loved the movie so much and finding out that Janel Parrish was in it was even sweeter! I like her a lot. I think she is super pretty and talented. Plus she promised me that she there would be a chance to meet her after the show. That is awesome!

The Prospect Theatre is a very unassuming theatre in Hollywood. There was no sign for the place. I knew where the general vicinity of it was, but I had to ask the bouncer where I was and he directed me up towards the stairs.

There was a two food/drink item limit or a $15 charge would be placed on each attendee. Oooh, I ordered two of the smallest thingsĀ because I was planning to eat at Shake Shack later. Still, the whole setting was very intimate. The stage was set up with music stands. I didn’t know what to expect for this show. I figured it couldn’t be a full production show, but was curious how they would perform.

I saw Princess last night and I felt all the Prince vibes

I miss Prince. But a chance to see Princess (a Prince cover band with Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum) was special. The whole night felt like a Prince karaoke dance party.

I got to the Teragram Ballroom and the evening started with Computer Blue — the first lines of it. It was amazing to see so many Prince fans just being so happy. The stage was filled with members of the band as if they were to dressed as part of Prince’s crew.

Even though this was a special kind of music, it felt like Prince was still with us. It is indescribable to tell you how much I loved just hearing the songs, then singing along with them. The group even had their comments on how much they didn’t like Donald Trump. Regardless, the evening was full of dancing, full of mimicking everything accurately to Prince. Then at the end, they tossed the fake flowers to the crowd (I got one) and we waved and sang the final part of Purple Rain together.

What an amazing show! It was so special. It was perfect!!

St. Jerome Catholic School will be no more and I am sad

This really saddens me. The elementary school I attended from grades 2-8 is going to shut downĀ at the end of the school year.

I am so sad because I wpent so much time here and I learned a lot as a kid. I made great friends, learned a lot of valuable things and I was challenged to fight against the authority (in one way shape or form).

It was a pretty good school considering all that it was. It wasn’t a big school but it provided me a place where I was comfortable learning. It was kind of organized compared to the first school I attended.

I had a lot of great memories here. I am sad that it’s leaving. What a shame!

My opinion on Steve Harvey’s racist comments against Asian men

Oh and the people were laughing with it too.

What sucks is that the stereotype of Asian men isn’t very flattering, thus making Asian men not desirable. And Steve Harvey believes it too.

Do I care what he thinks? No. But I have much less respect for him because of this.

And I do still believe the stereotype of Asian men. Why? Because most of the Asian men I see are these stereotypes. They’re basically good at math, or doing some kind of tech work, they aren’t out in about in the Hollywood premise and all that. Some of it is not our fault. Some of it is culture. So theĀ perception of Asian men is exactly what Harvey is saying. It’s unfair and it’s wrong but it exists because it’s an unfair truth.

Not all Asian men fit the stereotype. I am not the stereotype. And I can try my best to change theĀ view of Asian men. But as long as the public perception continues of this and the men actually further these perceptions, it will remain. I’m not racist against my own kind but I am not ignorant to why these stereotypes exist.

Asian men are desirable. They are awesome. ButĀ the perceptions of us (some by our own fault, some by the fault of others)Ā breathe it into existence.Ā It’s unfair. It’s wrong. It shouldn’t happen this way. I’d like to see it changed but Harvey doesn’t help it. But it’s the time we live in unfortunately.
