I am asian. May. 3rd, 2004 @ 08:52 PM Reply

As some of you may remember, our April Fools prank this year involved a "McDonaldization" of Newgrounds... Where it appeared that we sold out our entire site branding to the golden arches.

While perusing the McDonalds site for inspiration, I stumbled across their "i-am-asian" website. Is it just me, or does something about this site just not feel appropriate???

In other news... I'm flying back out to San Diego on May 10th. While I'm on the west coast I'll be attending the E3 expo in LA, which runs from May 12-14th. If you want to follow along with E3, check out e3insider.com!

I expect to make some Alien Hominid announcements while I'm out there. Don't worry, it should all be good news! :)


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

that I am asian thing is saying that:
1. Eating McD's makes them more American.
2. That Americans only eat McD's

I am hurt by this. I like Chinese food does that make me more Asian?

Have you seen the trivia page? Some of those facts are just frightening.

The sun never sets over the golden arches? Wasn't that something that the British used to say when they were trying to TAKE OVER THE WORLD?

i feel like that it maybe be either a porno site... but i doubt it or a site where asians get to know other asians. I dont really know and im to lazy to look at the site for real, hope my guess was right.

Hah...

Don't you love how McDonald's will take a general kind of thing and claim it as their own? Lots of people are Asian...that doesn't mean they all love McDonald's, as McDonald's is trying to lead you to believe.

You'd think some Asian Affirmative Action organization or something would take that domain...but no, it's our favorite symbol of capitalist propaganda!

Racial and ethnic differences seem cheapened when corporations blatantly try to profit off them.

Hooray!!
You know what? You guys are wasting your time making games for PS2 and Flash. You know where the REAL market is? The VIRTUAL BOY! I just KNOW the Virtual Boy is going to make a huge comeback and be the next best thing!! I can't wait to see Alien Hominid shooting his goo pellets straight at my head in headache-inducing glorious red and black 3D!!!
No but seriously I'm excited to see what you guys come up with ;)
