They are renditions of a Japanese "Pillow Book"... A few people that I have shown this to have not exactly been pleased with the fact that she
didn't exactly create anything original. I definitely recognize some of the pics from somewhere and it may well be from a J-Pillow Book, which is clearly
about sex and different sexual positions. I did come across information about her having an exhibit and having had her artwork on display before in China and
in Nova Scotia and a few other places. I personally have stumbled across art bloggers arguing that her "paintings" are crap and shouldn't be
exhibited because it takes away from real painters and artist who can't get their work on display because the studio or gallery is giving space to Lucy
I never bothered to paste a link or paste the discussion from what I found, because some of the people got pretty damn mad about her being givin gallery space.
In it, a few stated that all she does is copy known works and then because she's Lucy Liu, someone puts it up as art while real artist have to slave for
something that they do honest work in. I do my own drawings and have a lot of natural talent in painting and such, but generally don't use it and refused
to go to art school for it, so? I wasn't exactly vibin with them, but at the same time I understood their frustration, because they as artists, can't
copy known works and think that someone won't pull their card as soon as they see it. One person said that her art proceeds generally go to UNICEF and
things like that, but they pretty much attacked dude like blood thirsty sharks and stated that she needs to stay acting and not trying to use celeb and charity
to get her "hack-kneed" work up in a gallery.
That's when I remembered how competitive artistry and painting is, and the fact that I was pretty good at describing why we have so many "starving
artist" sales. It is the same reason why I never went to art school. Once you actually go to "school" for a creative process, you start to lose
your unique-ness. If anything, you can quickly start to resemble the very teacher you idolized in class, or fall into "the standard forms" of known
painting and drawing, thus eliminating any chance of distinguishing yourself from anyone else.
I don't know why I just went through all that... It's 1am, time for me to get back to writing, later ZG, LOL! If Chrissandra was up and saw me on here
she would demand that I go to bed... Annnd maybe I should... gonna be a heatwave here on the East Coast... 90 degree weather with 100% humidity, plus haze...
think... I'll try to workout in this weather... I could stand to lose some weight anyway... -_- I'm babbling... 4 no real reason... goodbye!

It definitely sucks how actors have things handed to them on a silver platter while other people have to struggle.
Did you know that she'll be doing more voice work? She'll be voicing silvermist in the straight to Dvd movie, Tinker Bell. Oh yeah! Also, she will
be playing Nola Lyons on Dirty Sexy Money. She described Nola as "whip-smart, overachieving and very fashionable." Correct me if I'm wrong, but
wasn't that what her character from Cashmere Mafia was like? And when asked whether her character was going to be romantically paired with anyone, Lucy
said " "I hope so. I think I'll be romantically paired maybe with all - everyone that's up here, including the women." Hmmm.

OOOO!?!? Lucy's gonna play a *%#!!?!? I'm watchin it!
Seriously though, you're absolutely right, she did play the same character in Cashmere Mafia. Let's hope that she doesn't create the same result.
As for direct to DVD, that's the first signs of slippage, uh-oh. Here's to hoping she continues forward, but I'd like for her to move out of her
brothers house... it's... kinda weird, at least to me it is.

Asian Americans Need Not Apply

Fox Reconsiders Charlie Chan Ban
Charlie's Angels Sequel Angers Asian Americans
The crime-fighting female trio that captivated America with their mastery of espionage, martial arts, and skin-tight leather pants is back again. Teenage girls
across the country may be ecstatic about the film sequel to the blockbuster hit Charlie's Angels, but some fans aren't so pleased with Full Throttle.
Among the skeptics is an organization of Asian American moviegoers that is somewhat goaded about scenes in which Lucy Liu's character, Alex, introduces her
parents: a white father, played by John Cleese, and a Chinese mother, who only appears in an old photograph.
Much uproar from the Asian American community has surrounded Lucy Liu for her over-sexualized "dragon lady" role in Ally McBeal, but for the
most part, her role as Alex Munday in the first Charlie's Angels film was celebrated as an attempt to show the non-stereotypical side of Asian
Americans. Alex Munday was portrayed as an Asian American woman with vigor and confidence, an exceptional rendering that wasn't constantly
epitomizing cheap Oriental clichés. But the implication that Liu's character is biracial -- half Asian and half white -- has the Media Action Network for
Asian Americans, an organization dedicated to monitoring the media and advocating balanced and sensitive portrayals of Asian Americans, steaming. "
Hey Xiaohong, go over to Model Minority and start telling them how great Lucy Liu is and see how far you get... HAHAHAHAHA!

(Thanks to Mamazilla)
Lucy Liu is scheduled to appear as a guest on The View on January 4th. Given her comments to CNN
regarding the Rosie O'Donnell "ching chong" joke earlier last month, the issue will no doubt
come up and Lucy Liu will no doubt act as a "voice of the community" to excuse Rosie O'Donnell from any charge of racism.
Snail Mail to Lucy Liu can be addressed to either:
Lucy Liu's agent, Mary Ellen Mulcahy
9057 Nemo Street
West Hollywood, CA 90069
The William Morris Agency
c/o William Morris Agency
One William Morris Place
Beverly Hills, CA 90212
Please write a letter to either or both of these addresses requesting that Liu represent the APIA community's concerns when she appears on the show this
Thursday. This probably won't do much to stem the impending disaster, but at least you'll have done your part.
And, of course, stay tuned to Mamazilla, who first broke the news.

[Media] [ Stereotypes] [ Asian Americans]
So, tonight, I caught CNN Headline News' Showbiz Tonight show, wherein Councilman John Liu was supposed to respond to Rosie O'Donnell's
pseudo-apology. Aside from the fact that watching the segment was a complete waste of my time (Councilman Liu said nothing new and was so poorly edited into
the segment that he didn't even make sense), I was infuriated with the brief interview that was conducted with Lucy Liu regarding Rosie's
(Geese says; So let me get this straight Xiaohong? You honestly have no idea how Lucy Liu is perceived by too many ASIAN AMERICANS, because your funky-ass
doesn't even live in America! HAHAHAHAHAHA! LOSER! So you are talking s**t about someone where in their home turf, in their own country! For every FAN she
has, she has almost DOUBLE the number of CRITICS FROM HER OWN COMMUNITY HERE IN AMERICA! This is the problem with living in another country and then talking
s**t without knowing what is actually going on in her own homeland. Read the rest of this blog from Jenn who is ALSO Asian American and then go on ahead and
follow the links and go on there and start talking s**t to her next! GO ON! And mind you I could be here all damn night with the amount of people who are Asian
American and UTTERLY SICK OF HER ASS! I on the other hand, I'm timid in comparison to what I have read and seen, worse than that though is unlike many of
them I believe she has talent but she settles wayyyy too much. There comes a point when it has nothing to do with race or the Hollywood conditions and it
simply has everything to do with... This person is just gonna take whatever is washed down the pipe and swim in it anyway, regardless of it is sewer water...
In her exchange with CNN, Lucy Liu said:
I think Rosie O'Donnell is-… is a comedian and comedians do things that are outrageous and not politically correct all the time. If everyone has the
right to their opinion, and, uhm, I think that if everyone had to apologize for everything, than it would just be ridiculous.
Yeah, well, Lucy Liu hasn't exactly been known for her racial solidarity. Although she is Hollywood's most prominent Asian American
celebrity, she has not once used her celebrity to even address issues facing the Asian American community. She has never reached out to the APIA community,
spoken on behalf of Asian American issues, and has done her best during her career to emphasize her "Asian"-ness without being
Remember, that it was Lucy Liu who played the most infamous modern-day dragon lady on Ally McBeal. It was Liu who donned a Japanese-style
kimono to emulate the Asian masseuse/geisha stereotype in Charlie's Angels. It is Liu who has been cast as (as well as producing) the new Charlie
So, sure, if I were Showbiz Tonight, looking to find the nearest Asian American to discredit Councilman John Liu, I might turn to Lucy and
ask her to sell out her race, once more, to her White audiences. And Lucy Liu has criticized the
Asian American community in many interviews, arguing that we are trying to alienate her, and so she chooses to define her career independently of the
politics of her race.
But, I just want to remind Liu that it is precisely these moment, when Liu speaks out against issues of Asian American solidarity, that makes us want to
revoke her race card.
