Lyrics to Telling You by Jenny Suk

this is love
its written all over my face
its something id try describing
but its hard to say a thing
this is love
it seems like a world of your own
when you could feel the butterflies
fluttering theyre outgrown.

so when i see your face
it gets harder everytime
to let go of us.
do you recall when i would
tell you

i love us. i cant go. a day without
your sweet lovin
i cant hide. they all know. so lookout
my hearts runnin’
heyyou, i’m tickled up
and i know i
aint picture perfect…

this is real
hearts will start to colide
it feels like we’re entwined by all our roots
to grow aligned
said i need you need you.
another way to say
i gotta have yu have you
the sound of your voice
is echoing

whats sweeter than sweeter than sugar, love.
is the taste of us x3

Kill Joy by Steve Nguyen x Brian Tan

Kill Joy by Steve Nguyen x Brian Tan

Our very own Steve Nguyen and his friend Brian Tan entered this submission “Kill Joy” to the Interpretations Film Initiative. It’s a full blown production with sets and props. And don’t forget the special effects. Warfare is no game. Here’s a synopsis:

On routine patrol through a small Iraqi hamlet, a convoy of US Army vehicles is suddenly ambushed. Private McKay, the squadron’s newest recruit, finds himself thrust unexpectedly into his first ever combat experience. His ears ring from the shrieking of exploding shells, but McKay hesitates to return fire. In a matter of seconds his understanding of warfare is forever changed as he raises his gun and unloads on the target. An epic film about the war in Iraq, the film is basically about the danger of socialization, the power of social change, and the effects of warfare on our veterans. While there have been countless war films in the past, Kill Joy seeks to present an unbiased glimpse into the lives of those fighting in Iraq. As an objective film that seeks to neither glorify nor condemn the US invasion, it hopes to encourage viewers to think about their world view and challenges them to make their own mind about armed conflict on a very real, applicable level.

Kill Joy by Steve Nguyen x Brian Tan

When Steve told us about this project, we didn’t know he was going all in on it. Beyond the high production value, there is an underlying message for the film about warfare and society in general. Here’s a quote from the film maker:

Soldiers are often not understood. Our film, Kill Joy, seeks to provide you with a glimpse into a day in the life of an ordinary US Army private and how he has to come to terms with killing for the first time. The film is about how males in America are brought up and socialized to kill, and how traumatizing killing someone can be for the men and women serving in our armed forces.

Leave feedback for the film here.

Still Got Rice? (Asian Pride 2010)

Here’s a cool Asian pride anthem for 2010 called “Still Got Rice?” by 3Peat. The Seattle-based trio comprised of brothers David “D-One” & Andrew “Inglish” Fung along with rapper Noah put out the track to the beats of Tupac’s Changes. The song is packed to the max with Asian American references galore. From Asian American YouTubers to entertainers to Asian food, you’ll find someone or something you’ll know. The question is how many of these references will you get. The song is reminiscent of Chinese School off the Ping Pong Playa soundtrack. Look for the channelAPA.com logo at the 2:07 mark.

You can download the full mixtape from 3Peat for FREE here

Still Got Rice? by 3Peat

Lyrics to Still Got Rice? (Asian Pride 2010)

[INGLISH]
It’s the A Z N and you heard the rest
a lot has changed now it’s 2 k 10
But we gon bring Azn Pride back again,
Cuz we up on the rise just watch the trends
We still keyboard clickin, bubble tea sippin
When you hit the age Hennesey drinkin
cover song singing, guitar stringin
Mixing our parents language with English
MTV, kinda put us on first
ABDC best dancers in the world
From William Hung to Jin and Far East
We got the best duck and grilled meats
koi fish tattoos on ours arms and chest
still pwnin the standard aptitude Test
They hate cuz we so well at school and!
Nerds turn rich and rich people are the coolest
Asian Guys need more Asian pride
one day they’ll say THAT ASIANS FLY
No lie, but some things will never change
Asians girls and white guys that’s the way it is

Yeah and we still got rice, still got food, still got spice
Yeah and we still got girls, still got brains, still got rides
Yeah and we still got rhymes still got shops, still got rice
It’s not longer the A Z N, uh but we still got pride

[D-One]
It’s the A-Z-N ninja, flunk the tests
Still messin up the curves, who thunk we left
we came a long way from tha suped up cars
To bein some of the Worlds biggest YouTube stars
They said, yeah Asians got online views
But can they pack crowds or rock a venue
We juss way too humble to say we’re cool
But you saw Paqiuao on Pay Per View
Dancing like Kaba, throwing those Jabbawookeez
On the Quest to be best, sweat out his Poreotix
Dumb en D-Pryde rappin, Traphik got us laughin
Kev with Wong-Fu man its clear they got Passion
Clara C and David Choi, acoustic pop masters
Far East blew up cuz hip-hop turned faster
Michelle Phan says use this now en not after
Everyone’s into K-Pop en Christian like the Pastor
Asian comedians on a mission for the laughter
Russell Peters, Ken Jeong, vision moving faster
Some people think Bobby Lee is takin us back
Playin stereotypes I think he’s just making us laugh
While Jay Park is out making them scream
Niga Higa gettin money, makin that cheese
But for now, online’s still the only place you an see
A cool new true-school yellow face on the screen

Yeah and we still got rice, still got food, still got spice
Yeah and we still got girls, still got brains, still got rides
Yeah and we still got rhymes still got shops, still got rice
It’s not longer the A Z N, uh but we still got pride

[NOAH]
AZN but now what it look like?
Nothin changed with the ways of the crook type or the book type
Still get it in mayne
Benz or the lex hop in the whip mayne
Gotta do it big Coppin all the fits the mayne
Still own shit that’s we get paid
On melrose might cop that
No shelltoes we off that
Lil YouTube grind we got that
Take a pic of the food might blog that
Everybody know wassup with the cuisine
Wouldn’t mind right now some sushi
Or a hot bowl of pho fuck a two piece
Everybody know we the one to see
In the future like told you
Might might cheers with hennny or soju
I been waiting damn long for this day man
I could get up on a track and say man
My love for the AZN
N we tryna entertain like afian
From the rapping hoopin acting doin
Things that they ain’t never seen
We could do anything with a big dream
Tryna uplift here do big things
Everybody know where the hell we at
We tryna take it everywhere there and back
The good with the bad the bad with the good
Let em all know we that damn good!!!
