You guys know about vampires? … You know, vampires have no reflections in a mirror? There’s this idea that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. And what I’ve always thought isn’t that monsters don’t have reflections in a mirror. It’s that if you want to make a human being into a monster, deny them, at the cultural level, any reflection of themselves. And growing up, I felt like a monster in some ways. I didn’t see myself reflected at all.

A 42-year-old Russian fisherman was brutally attacked by a bear, but he was suddenly saved when the ringtone his granddaughter installed on his mobile phone went off and Justin Bieber’s “Baby” sent the bear running back to the woods.

Just some badass East Asian/Southeast Asian actresses who I’d love to see in more things. I was doing research for a fancast and although most of these ended up not being useful to me, I thought putting them together in one post might make a useful resource for people trying to find an actress of the right age/ethnicity (for fancasts, etc.)

So, here you are! :-)

Michelle Yeoh (age 51) - Chinese/Malaysian

Ming-Na Wen (age 50) - Chinese

Li Gong (age 48) - Chinese

Lucy Liu (age 45) - Chinese

Grace Park (age 39) - Korean

Linda Park (age 35) - Korean

Zhang Ziyi (age 35) - Chinese

Maggie Q (age 34) - Vietnamese (+Irish/Polish/French on the other side)

Rinko Kikuchi (age 33) - Japanese

Jamie Chung (age 30) - Korean

What was striking to me doing this research is that there seem to be far fewer well-known Japanese actresses compared to Chinese or even Korean… anyone have any idea why that would be?

In his series, The Good Badlands, photographer Guy Tal seeks to show us that though it is often hidden, and may only appear briefly, there is delicate and subtle beauty in abundance for any viewer with patience and desire.
