TEDxUofW - Simon Tam: A New Slant on Racism 

My first TEDx talk. I was a bit shaken and sleep deprived but I hope you’ll enjoy the talk. Next one will be better ;)

I wanted to focus on the stupidity and systemic racism that’s present in our government, as evidenced by the United States Trademark Office trying to control identity. There’s no doubt that when you deny people the right to take control of their own identity, you treat them as second class citizens.

If Asians Said The Stuff White People Say

Photo 7 Jun 11 notes Breaking Asian American Male Stereotypes…
This was really cool to see. Sometimes, I forget how our art can impact people in different ways - but to know that we helped other people find their voice (literally) and to empower them to break beyond the stereotypes placed on Asian American males…that’s pretty cool.
It’s a good reminder of why I continue climbing back onto a stinky tour bus time after time, to melt faces around the world.

Link 5 Jun 11 notes Wanted: New Lead Singer | THE SLANTS»

Can you help spread the word?

Portland’s The Slants is the first and only all-Asian American dance rock band in the world. The group has a solid history of nearly 7 years, which includes: 3 full-length releases and 1 remix album, nearly two dozen tours and over 300 live shows throughout North America, 10 music videos with over 10,000 views (including one with over 335,000 views), and coverage in over 1,500 radio stations, TV shows, magazines, newspapers, and websites.

The band is looking for a new Asian American singer (male or female) who can be committed to keeping and growing the momentum behind the band. The perfect singer is one who can perform at least 5 shows per month, do weekend regional tours, tour 2-4 weeks per year, has a dynamic stage presence, isn’t afraid to help take the band in new directions, and cares about social justice issues. We’re not looking for a clone of our current singer and we’d love to explore new frontiers with sounds or experiences.

That time where we had a chat with George Takei and he gave some incredible advice about being an Asian American in the entertainment industry.
