“Friend Zone”

No news for right now, other than the same burnout that I was reporting before. I think it’s the Portland rain. I need to move to sunny CA or something.

Anyway, someone sent me the Fung Brothers video above. It’s pretty funny.

  1. No white guys? I’m not surprised. We’re the ones scoring who’s AF, not black guys.

  2. “No news for right now, other than the same burnout that I was reporting before. I think it’s the Portland rain. I need to move to sunny CA or something”.

    I think you need to move back to your former hometown of NYC, where the energy is high and ambition is what it takes to get things done.

    There are plenty of Asian immigrants here for you to work with, and grassroot level organizations for you to put a mark on, since Asian activism is a passion of yours if I’m not mistaken.

    I would never trade the Big Apple for sunny CA, where the weather is too congenial for relaxation, and perhaps frivolity, like what the Fung Bros are doing in their video. But that’s just me!

    Wow his “Last” post lasted like what, 2 seconds?

    Chr, a man (i mean whatever he is) of his word. Won’t be seeing that podcast after 1000 posts either.

  4. What does “I won’t ever post on this site ever again” mean?

    Just like we all thought. He just wrote that so Byron would post his negative stuff on here again.

    The guy is dying for attention. Go get a pet dude.

  5. Wow, I was pleasantly surprised! I’ve seen some of the other videos by the Fung Bros., and while they’re pleasant enough, the videos always had an all-too-familiar self-deprecating quality to them. Kind of a “Yeah, we Asian guys ARE nerdy and White guys ARE usually cooler than us, but hey, can we at least get a laugh out of you?” quality.

    But this video actually made a pretty strong point that a lot of Nice Guys™ don’t seem to get: Maybe you’re only stuck in the friend zone because you only want “hot” girls, the kind of girls who’ll instantly make you look like The Man because every guy on the street will check her out.

    You can’t accuse women of being shallow if you’re being even more shallow in the first place. If you want a 9, then she has a right to want someone who’s handsome, tall, and rich. That someone is probably not you, especially if all you have to offer in return is your Niceness®.

    So go out with girls who actually like you. Who knows, maybe the confidence you build up through relationship experience will one day make you attractive to those who are physically out of your league.

  6. The part about the “black” guys always “scoring” is very prejudice. It reminds me of the over sexualization “black” people go through daily days. What is worse is a lot of “black” people are starting to buy into that line of thinking as well. Yeah, that part is very Tina Kim-ish.

  7. Dr. Z Some stereotypes exist to some degree and sometimes it exaggerated by rumors and media coverage.
    At least Bryon took my advice and showed a video of Asians hooking up with other hot Asians. Enough of feeding into Sigfried’s obsessive fetish and Chr’s insecurity on this blog. To this day, the white dominated media in news, tv and movies either want ignore the strong Asian male presence in America or promote their divide and conquer of showing white males with Asian woman. (or SOW’s) The Fung Brothers keep it real with pride and say no to sellouts.:(

    Yeah, and the media needs to take that Mandingo stuff back where it came from.
