In 1986, the United Way attempted to break the world record for balloon launches, by releasing 1.5 million balloons, which resulted in two deaths, millions in lawsuits, and a devastating environmental impact.
did they die of fun
Hey! There’s a cool thing happening. ABC is making a pilot for a new sitcom called Far East Orlando and it’s only the second primetime network show featuring an Asian American cast, after Margaret Cho’s show All-American Girl which aired for only one season 20 years ago. This is really encouraging to see and I’m definitely gonna watch it.
people better watch the fuck out of this show
When this shit comes out, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, my Asian people, can we NOT get overly sensitive about the tiniest things being culturally inaccurate? and can we PLEASE not get offended by minuscule details and try to over analyze everything??? I loved All-American Girl, and even though I was super young when I watched it, I knew how important it was for Asian Americans. That show ended up failing, and it had a lot to do with Asians getting upset over dumb shit like a Japanese actor playing a Korean girl’s dad or the art on the walls and just stupid shit like that. It’s TV, there will be inaccuracies, and there will be a lot of Asian jokes, but let’s just take a deep breath and enjoy that fact that we are comin up!!!
