DIM SUM Music Video!

written by: Mr. APA

I'm still working on the other article for over a month now but I just saw this and had to share it with you guys.  If there's ever been a YouTuber who's subscriber base doesn't equal what I feel is his real following, it's AndrewJFung.  His youtube page showcases a young and upcoming Asian Personality with everything from Jeremy Lin (Asian NBA rookie) to Rap videos about how awesome Asian Girls are.  He was actually recently featured in the young online magazine The Other Asians

We took a Vow to Never Sleep - Asian Americans in the indie music scene

Hey readers, I'm back after a long hiatus.

Moving to a new city is really stressful and extremely busy. I see that Lionel and APA went a little crazy in my absence. My apologies - usually I'm the level-headed guy that keeps the group together and out of trouble. I'm one that pulls Lionel out of strip clubs before he gets on the pole, I'm the one that consistently keeps APA from going back to the local high school at 2:30 pm (he tricked me twice by saying he was going to his grandmother's funeral. It did not work the third time), and I'm ALWAYS the one that has to bail ImSoChinese out after he gets arrested for soliciting INSIDE THE POLICE STATION.

You can understand why I needed to take a break. Either way, I'm back now to talk about Asian Americans in the music business. By now, everyone knows that multi-Grammy winning band Linkin Park has Mike Shinoda on the mic and Joe Hanh on the turntables, but here are a few lesser-known bands with Asian-American members that you really need to check out.
