Harry Shum Jr., also known as Mike Chang from Glee, made a special appearance at a Q & A session at Colorado State University Saturday Apr. 6. The event was the start to CSU’s Asian Fest, a month long celebration full of different activities hoping to bring awareness to Asian American culture. For more information about upcoming activities visit http://www.apacc.colostate.edu/. During the interview Shum spoke about his experience in the entertainment industry and how being an Asian American has impacted his career. After moving from Costa Rica to California at a young age, Shum felt as though he had to assimilate to a brand new culture. His first language was Spanish, and growing up he had to learn both Chinese and English. According to Shum, he was bullied as a child and always felt different; then he found the arts. Through the arts he was able to open up and finally feel comfortable in his own skin. He wanted to prove the world wrong and found success through dance and theatre.

The ugly black ties that you always have just sitting there on your wrist, just in case you need to put your hair up, are like an annoying itch you can’t scratch. It’s a necessity you can’t live without. Girls, you know what I’m talking about. But guess what? I have just found the solution to this fashion faux pas.

Does this look all too familiar?

Does this look all too familiar?

This weekend, I had the privilege of attending the FACE Design competition in Denver, hosting the talent of a ton of different designers, presenting their products. One designer’s speech in particular stuck out to me. Maybe it was the adorable white lace dress she was wearing that made me automatically adore her idea, but I personally like to think that my bias towards her fabulous outfit had no sway in my love for her product. She had created what she calls Black Ties.

These ties have the exact same function as a regular black hairtie, but it comes with an extra little bonus. When you are wearing them on your wrist, they look like a bracelet.

Black Ties that look great!

Black Ties that look great!

While perusing the Bloom Jewelry website, I got a small taste of this fabulous creation. There are eight different black ties too choose from and each one comes with two different styles. Adorable and chic are just a few of the words I would use to describe them.

Ladies, if you are sick and tired of your boring black hair-ties, then I would definitely recommend these for you. Time to throw out the old and bring in the new.

For more information on this fabulous product, look online here.

The Las Vegas Strip, where entertainment is king

A  less than wise man once told me,

“Nothing is on a continuum anymore, it’s all either crap or transcendence.”

I wish that were true. Nothing would make reviewing books, movies and music easier. But you’re hard pressed to find a critic that acknowledges that nothing is all good and even less is all bad. That said, let me kindly introduce myself, I’m Kenny Myers and it’s going to be my pleasure to present you with as much of the good and the bad of cinema, literature and music as it’s released.
