PIC: The Cheese Line Up at our team Cheese Festival!

I think a couple more kinds of cheese showed up after we had already started digging in.

Not sure why we didn’t write down all the cheeses that were there. Probably because we were all too busy cheesing out.

SMAP vs The Black Eyed Peas at Rock-Paper-Scissors on Japanese Show

I made a post on 8Asians about Japanese boy band SMAP’s parody of the Kpop girl group Girls’ Generation video of “Gee” and then got sucked into watching more videos of SMAP online.

So I found this hilarious video of SMAP with Black Eyed Peas. It’s not subtitled to English, but I’m pretty sure most people can still watch it and understand what’s happening. All you need to know is that the video features SMAP vs BEP at a batsu (punishment) version of Rock, Paper, Scissors. The only thing better is if they would have played rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock.

(Skip ahead to 1:40 if you want to skip the random interview part and get to the good stuff).

MYX TV GETS LUCKY WITH 8ASIANS
The network announces their partnership with the most recognizable collective team of Asian American voices online.

Redwood City, CA (August 17, 2011) – MYX TV, the country’s premier Asian American network, announces its partnership with 8Asians, a national team of bloggers and journalists that tackles issues as they relate to Asian American pop culture and interests. Catch their exclusive content – blogs, videos and podcasts on MYX TV starting this month.

“There are entertaining and intriguing personalities behind 8Asians,” said Anthony Garcia, Head of Production for MYX TV. “Not only are they diversifying our content, but also adding layers to the Asian American voices in media.”

8Asians is the brainchild of editor-in-chief and founder, Ernie Hsiung. His co-editors, Joz Wang and Moye Ishimoto describe him as the ‘benevolent dictator’ of whom many embarrassing pictures are available online. Wang (aka “Cult Leader”) and Ishimoto (aka “Resident Pie Maker”) work with contributors from San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Jose, Pennsylvania, Hawaii, North Carolina and Denver.

The partnership with MYX TV merges their vast online following. Their sites, 8Asians.com, GASP!, POP88, 8Asians Tumblr, 8Asians Events and The A-Word have built them online fame as popular Asian American voices.

“8Asians wants to challenge the notion that Asian Americans are all the same and have one opinion through our diverse voices and viewpoints,” says Ernie Hsiung, Editor-in-Chief of 8Asians. “Our goal is to make as many people as uncomfortable as possible by adding more Asian American characters online and now, on television.”

The voices on 8Asians is a testament to their mission, as it boasts of contributors from both coasts, all genders, all political parties and a variety of careers and ages.

“We are excited to partner with MYX TV. Their idea of bringing out new perspectives on Asian Americans and sharing them on multiple platforms are in sync with our goals,” said Joz Wang, Editor and Marketing Head of 8Asians. “And with Ernie on TV, watch out Barbara Walters! He’s Asian and has sexier hair.”

Catch 8Asians on MYX TV, available nationwide and online.

ABOUT 8ASIANS.COM:

In addition to the main blog at 8Asians.com, the family of sites also includes GASP! (a shopping blog), POP88 (podcast featuring interviews, news, games and the best in J-pop, K-pop and other Asian pop music today), 8Asians Tumblr, 8Asians Events (Asian American events listing site), and The A-Word (8Asians’ official podcast).
