A (JADED) RAVER RETURN TO EDC

Read about my return to EDC

#SorryAsianParents

(Original post was on iHeartRaves)

After taking a year off, I attended my 8th Electric Daisy Carnival. Which also happened to be the 20th Anniversary of the iconic festival hosted by Insomniac Events. I, like many seasoned ravers, have uttered the phrase: “This is going to be my last EDC”. And like the many, we have failed multiple of times to live that statement through.

Many things have inspired my return to my favorite festival: My travel partner returning home from her duty in the Peace Corps, the 20th birthday of EDC and my crews itching to return to Vegas and rage. These are just a few reasons, but do you really need a reason to go back to E. D. Mother Effin’ C!

Dear Andrew, My Friend Who Was Taken From Us Too Soon

Something I wrote for my friend who was taken from this world too soon. RIP Andrew Chu

(Note: This is not a comedy piece. My friend Andrew, who was a genuine great person, was taken away from us too soon. He did not drink, do drugs, or have a hateful cell in his body. It’s a shame what happened. An accident. So be safe out there folks, and cherish the people around you. You never know what will happen. This is an open letter to the man who made me want to not only become a better Asian, but a better person of the world. I’m a man who does not know how to really handle feelings and writing is the only way I know how. Every time I try to talk to someone about Andrew, I can’t help but to fight off tears and sorrow. So I don’t speak at all. Instead, I write.)

Dear Andrew,

I really don’t know how to start this, but I’m…

The Rise of The Fuckgirl

Posted on

This is true

GET OVER THIS WORLD

Let’s cut the sexism. This fuckery exists in both genders.

Fuckgirl exists too. 

FullSizeRender-1What is a fuckgirl?

A fuckgirl is a girl that loves to play games and seeks pleasure out of breaking guys’ hearts.   She is sly, sneaky, smart, and manipulative and knows exactly what she wants and how to get it.  She wants all of a guy’s attention without the commitment of a relationship. Once she has conquered a man, she drops him like nothing ever happened, and moves on to the next.  Why? Because it’s just no fun anymore. Often, you can find her juggling several different men at once.  She obviously does whatever the fuck she wants and doesn’t give a fuck about who’s feelings she hurts in the process.

Of course, there are different levels of fuckgirls. There are those with morals, there are those without morals, and there are the ones in between. For example, the ones without…

Merry Christmas from Koko and Airec and Deadpool

Posted on Updated on

I forgot to re-blog this from Xmas. Opps. Typical Airecisms

#SorryAsianParents

By Airec Sype.

Howdy y’all. It’s been some time since we both have posted on our blog but here we are today. We both have been working on various different projects and still have been writing on different platforms. So it’s sad that we have been neglecting our baby. I (Sype.) am posting on this site because my credit card that was funding the payment for A Dark Minded Giggle expired and it was gonna cost me about 100 bucks to buy back the domain name . . . yeah, f*ck that. So I’m using this.

Let me start off with MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! Whereas most families are spending their Xmas together, my dysfunctional but functional Asian family is spending it not together (I’m sure there is a better word for that). Any who, I’m sure we will all be together right before I leave.

Some khao poon and sticky rice with chicken and Thai green chili lime sauce Some khao poon and sticky rice with chicken…

Puns in Ikea . . . Yeah, Puns Are Still Funny

Posted on

By Airec Sype.

Simon Gilmore released this about video of him shopping, or rather his girlfriend shopping and he annoying, her at an IKEA. In the two-minute video, the Australian relentlessly throws puns after puns at Dona. Got to hand it to him, his quick wit is something to admire as he unleashes ’em one after another. Some may say that these puns on the Swedish labeling of items are painful and that he should stop, but then there people like me who enjoys the play on words and loved every minute of the video!

Puns are amazing, they have been around since the dawn of comedy. Sure puns are easy to make, but my God, that one good pun can knock you on your little punny! No, I don’t think that works but you get what I mean. There is just an art form to the comedy of a painfully bad, but yet good, pun.

Here, have CollegeHumor explain it to you!

Well anyways, I can understand this mans pain(s). I’ve been shopping with girls before and it kinda sucks; there’s too much time looking at stuff and thinking about maybe buying the stuff. So him making a day out of it seems like the right way to spend his time walking around IKEA. At first Dona doesn’t seem to enjoy it, but she eventually comes around.

If you want a play-by-play of how it all went down, check out The Australian coverage of it. Actually from reading their piece, we learn that Gilmore is a part-time comedy writer. Well, who would have thought.

Check out the video and have a few laughs, I know I did.

Till next time, Sype.

Bernie Sanders Tour: Just In Time For Festival Season!!!

Posted on

 

By Airec Sype.

It’s that time of year again where everyone’s posting Facebook or Twitter political updates, telling everyone that they care for more than just funny memes or cat pictures. I’m not here to push some kind of political agenda upon y’all, I’m just here to post funny videos and links.

Funny Or Die just released a video projecting Bernie Sanders campaign as a music concert tour titled “Bernie Sanders Summer Tour.” It’s pretty funny. The two comedians asks the people in attendance for their “favorite hits,” referring to Sanders stance and political platform (like free education and higher taxes on the wealthy). Some of the attendees are in on the jokes and some look lost with the festival fever trope.

Remember that I’m not here to push some kind of political candidate on you, just to make you laugh. If I did however had some kind of stance on Sanders, then I would probably post a video like that below for you to see. That’s how you would know if I had a stance on this whole Democrat primary election.

Till next time and vote intelligently, Sype.

 

 

Old People Things: Part 2

Posted on Updated on

sleeping airec

By: Koko and Airec

Welp, here we are again to tell the world that we’re getting older! During one of our frequent conversations about our aging bodies and our concerns of today’s youth, we realize again that time is still not on our side. So as we grow older (and hopefully wiser) we start to notice all the things we do differently, and the changes in the ways we view and navigate the world. This lead us to some realizations (again) that makes us a little more our age and young adult-ish.

So here is our continuation of Old People Things. We present to you, the long-awaited, part 2!

1. If 2 or more things must be remembered- you have to start a list

2. Personal property insurance

3. Planning what your children’s names will be

4. Having several bank accounts, all for different purposes

5. Your body has its own bedtime

6. A cup of coffee is a morning ritual

7. A ‘crazy Friday night’ means a bottle of wine and The Bachelorette (Airec is animes and sitcoms)

8. It takes 2 days to recover from 1 night of drinking

9. You wish you could still dial POPCORN to find out the accurate time so you can properly adjust your wrist watch

10. You wear a wrist watch

11. You’re old enough to know what POPCORN was

12. You always have Pedialyte in your fridge- ready and waiting

13. Thinking of how inappropriate a girl’s  clubbing/festival attire is

14. Standing around awkwardly at an 18+ Club

15. Having Icy-Hot within arm distant

16. Thinking of names for your future pet and what kind

17. Tipping correctly

18. TUMS. So many TUMS.

19. Choosing to get a hotdog before heading home to cook over partying with a bunch of 21 year olds on a Thursday night

There it is, 19 ways we are older now. We both have felt the cruel wrath of time as our own bodies continues to break down. It doesn’t feel like it now, but you will get old someday; it’s just a sad fact of life.  We’re sure that soon we’re gonna have another list of how we are entering adulthood. So watch out for that. There’s no denying that our party side is now slowing down and our ideas of fun are shifting. We just accept the fact that we’re old people now, but hey(!), we’re still cool!

Till next time, Koko and Airec.
