Eddie Huang for TIME Magazine

I have to admit that when I first heard about Fresh Off the Boat becoming a television series on ABC, I wanted to boycott the show. I had seen the commercials for it and the acting sometimes made me cringe, but it wasn’t until Kevin told me that he was entirely caught up on the series that I thought it deserved a shot. How quickly I changed my tune…

I was afraid that by others watching the show that Asian Americans would be faced with those confirmations about our stereotypes or that everyone would immediately assume that my childhood was exactly like Eddie’s which was going to be portrayed negatively. In fact, my childhood and my brother’s was a lot like Eddie’s and it wasn’t portrayed negatively. I am now a fan of the show and I think it does something great for Asian Americans. It gives us something to relate to because I can guarantee you growing up, I never felt like anyone could really relate to me in this sense.

The Hunting Ground

Describing the fallout after her assault, one Harvard student says, “I went to the dean of students’ office and she said, ‘I just want to make sure that you don’t talk to anyone about this.'”

Directed by Kirby Dick, The Hunting Ground tells the story of how major universities across the country are looking the other way when it comes to women getting sexually assaulted on campus to protect their name and their brand. I’m very fortunate to have gone to a school where this wasn’t a huge issue, but that doesn’t mean that it doesn’t happen outside of school. 1 in 4 women will experience sexual assault in their lifetime and you should never tell anyone that this happens to to stay silent. I think this film is going to be very important and I think it sends such a strong message to both universities and other young women that could potentially find themselves in a situation like this. The film will be released February 27th in select cities.

Song of the Day

Andy Grammer – Honey, I’m Good.

Oh boyyyy, Ryan is taking me to see Andy Grammer this week and I’m so excited! The last time I saw him was when he did a show in Seattle while I was in college and since then he’s put out another album that I’m still getting myself acquainted with this week. At first, I wasn’t too partial to this song, but this music video is just too cute. Really looking forward to dancing along to this at the show Thursday in the city!

“After Us”

I read a blog called Doobybrain every day and every so often they highlight Wong Fu Production short videos and they’ve always been so so good. “After Us” definitely hits close to home. It reminds me of my own breakups, but also the type of rebuilding after a breakup that we all go through and that I’ve even seen through my own friends and those closest to me. I thought this was very well done.

And after watching the actual video, watch the behind the scenes for how it was all done.

Ariana Grande – One Last Time

I never thought I would be that excited about “One Last Time” being Ariana’s next single, but ever since I heard the news that it would be, the song has really been growing on me.

Taylor Swift – Style

So Taylor released her music video for “Style” this morning and it’s not really anything we expected. I mean it’s not a masterpiece or the most original thing we’ve ever seen either, but it didn’t blow us a way. Things I wanted to see: either a hotter guy or a Harry Styles look-a-like because c’mon, we all know this song is about him, right?

Okay, now excuse us while we go listen to this jam 10x in a row.

Alyson Stoner’s Tribute To Missy Elliott

When Missy Elliott took the stage at the Super Bowl, every former Missy fan was wondering where her right-hand woman was! Of course everyone was thinking of the little girl who was a phenomenal dancer. Well, Alyson Stoner is all grown up! She’s not dancing as much as she used to, but she does have a singing career and her dancing is still as good as she was when she was a child.

Justin Baldoni’s Adorable Baby Announcement

I don’t know about any of you, but I’ve been completely hooked on Jane the Virgin since the show started. One of the lead actors on the series, Justin Baldoni, just announced that him and his wife Emily are expecting and they did it in the most adorable way possible. Since it’s Valentine’s Day and the love is strong and apparent from this video, we’re still going along with our Valentine’s Day week theme. If this doesn’t at least make you tear up a little bit, then I’m all out of ideas!

I’m looking forward to the day when I learn one of my best friends is expecting. Tears. For days.

PS: At the very end of the video, Emily and Justin learn the gender of their baby, but they’re deciding to keep that part to themselves for now!

Wedding Mondays

We’ve been on a really good streak of posting this weekend! This is mostly because I had to stay in from having a pretty nasty cold. I know we’ve skimped on Wedding Mondays for the past couple of weeks, but on the week of Valentine’s Day? That’s just unacceptable. I stumbled across this sweet proposal video this weekend and I knew that it was the perfect one to kick off this week right.

Dave + LJ, we can’t wait to see your actual wedding video someday!
