My Own Show - Episode 2
Scott Yoshimoto is back with another episode of “My Own Show“. This episode has special guest DanAKADan of afterschoolspecial along with a bunch of Asian American artists on and off the camera like Paul Dateh as (DJ Data on the radio), Cathy Nguyen, Kevin Lien, CP, and more. Here’s a synopsis of episode 2:

DANakaDAN (himself) of afterschoolspecial is in town, and SCOTT (scott yoshimoto) and CASEY (casey nishizu) find themselves rocking out to “Future Rockstars” by afterschoolspecial on the radio on the way to the video shoot for the very same song. Still looking for help for the upcoming party SCOTT, CASEY and DJ ACKUS (alex bretana) are supposed to throw, they turn to DANakaDAN for help. But they are interrupted when DJ ACKUS gets a message from CP (himself) about a new track he just produced. From there, the track is then taken on the ultimate journey: from just an idea, to the making and tracking of the song, to a music video with crazy dancing and choreography, to an instant viral video hit on the internet, to finally the song climbing up the charts on the radio.

In the short is the original song Dance Like Yesterday and the remix with DanAKADan. Pick up these songs Original on Dance and remix on Dance

Charice talks Sunshine Corazon on GLEE

Charice Pempengco talks about her new role as Sunshine Corazon on GLEE. Her character is a foreign exchange student from the Philippines and rival to Rachel Berry (Lea Michele). Charice really relates to her Filipino character. It’s almost like playing herself. She shares about her first day walking onto the GLEE set. It’s a dream come true for her. Watch Glee Season 2 episode 1.

Her Oprah connections are paying off big time. See her performances on Oprah : In This Song, Note To God, and her first time. We can’t believe how quickly she’s been thrusted in the spotlight.

Glee Season 2 episode 1

Glee is back BIG. See the return of Mike Chang (Harry Shum Jr.) and Tina Cohen-Chang (Jenna Ushkowitz) in Glee Season 2 episode 1. The latest addition to William McKinley High School is Filipino exchange student Sunshine Corazon (Charice Pempengco). From the Glee promo, Charice and Lea Michele have a sing off in the girl’s bathroom to the tune of “Telephone” by Lady Gaga. Charice has quite a bit of the storyline and dope vocals in this episode. We’ll add spoilers beneath the video below. Looking forward to see more Charice, Harry Shum Jr. and Jenna Ushkowitz this season.

Download the episode on Audition. Also get the Telephone with Charice at Telephone

Glee Season 2 episode 1 (Telephone by Charice x Lea Michele)

Glee Season 2 episode 1 highlights/spoilers:

Rachel attempts to recruit Sunshine Corazon, a foreign exchange student from the Philippines, by promising opportunities to “sway in the background” during Rachel’s solos. However, when Sunshine joins her in an impromptu ladies room duet on Lady Gaga’s “Telephone,” Rachel is blown away by her talent – and is not-so-secretly worried that her own glee club spotlight might be stolen.

Rachel tells Kurt and Mercedes about Sunshine’s amazing vocals, clearly threatened but claiming she’s worried that the “lesser glee clubbers” will lose solos – not her. She reveals that she’s secretly paid off Azimio and Karofsky to traumatically slushie them in front of Sunshine to scare her off, but Kurt and Mercedes think Rachel is being awful. Anyone who can help them beat Vocal Adrenaline is automatically in, they insist. Rachel relents and promises to show Sunshine she’s welcome, giving her directions to the audition.

Sunshine is a no show for glee club auditions. Will learns that the reason Sunshine never came to tryouts is that Rachel’s directions took her to a local crack house (a low-traffic crack house, Rachel insists, but still . . .). Although Rachel says that she was protecting the other glee club members, Will insists that she make things right with Sunshine. Rachel invites Sunshine to the auditorium, where the new girl unleashes a mind-blowing rendition of “Listen” from “Dreamgirls.”

Will welcomes Sunshine to New Directions but is interrupted by Dustin Goulsby; Dustin’s the new coach of Vocal Adrenaline, and he’s secured Sunshine for his team with a new condo and green cards for Sunshine and her mom. Sue alerted Dustin about Sunshine in retaliation for Will abandoning the hate campaign against the coach, but Sunshine also confesses that she was reluctant to join New Directions because she felt the jealous, over-ambitious Rachel couldn’t be trusted. After the glee club finds out why they lost Sunshine, Finn lets Rachel know how upset they are with her.

Artie urges Finn to help him get on the football team in a bid to reclaim Tina’s affections, revealing that Tina dumped him after falling for Mike Chang at “Asian Camp.” Artie had neglected Tina in favor of his own self-centered pursuits, and Tina likes Mike because he’s into things that SHE’s into, like his abs.

The Necklace with Karin Anna Cheung

The Necklace with Karin Anna Cheung

Another alum from “The People I’ve Slept With” worked on a short for the Interpretations Film Initiative. This time it’s Karin Anna Cheung. She goes from a promiscuous woman to cold hearted bad ass. In The Necklace, she plays Charlie, who reminisces about the past and her actions the night before… Directing this short is Michael Aki, who also directed Strangers. The cinematography style is very similar in both films.

Here’s the director’s statement on the short:

Busy with submitting and promoting our latest film “Strangers,” we thought a break was much needed before heading into our next project. However, Cousin Eric Nakamura informed me about Interpretations and Toyotas (in addition to other) open invitation to submit a 3 minute short. I wasn’t interested at first but after his inspiring conversation, I picked up the phone and called the team. The deadline was looming so Bill and Robert took the task of collaborating with me on the writing, rewriting and revising of various ideas that would not only fulfill the requirements of the contest but more importantly stay within the context of our CineHous world. Karin Anna Cheung, who I had wanted to work with ever since we “tested” her some years back, was available between promoting her and Quentin Lee’s successful film, “The People I slept with.” Pryor and I scouted locations and we dusted off Angela(the Panasonic 24P) for one more go at it. Thanks to all for their participation and support. We hope you enjoy our short. Oh yeah, big chinchin thanks to Goh Nakamura for doing some score.
