quote:"Just reminding you ladies that Oct. 1st is the final date for submissions for the GBD Teen Board of Directors!!! So send in your creations. Anything that shows why you would be great for the position! I am getting a lot of feedback re: the vague-ness of the submission request. There is no right or wrong way, just do what you are inspired to do! In our education system, things are so rule-bound and specific, I think that this really open request encourages a more true expression. Try not to think too much about what we want, ‘cuz we aren’t looking for specifics, we are looking at your creations."
quote:"I have read this book many times. As a kid I used to read it, and then weep… I always related so much to Jo, and her journey. And when I cut my hair and got all that “hate mail” I joked about how I was like Jo when she cut hers, and they were all like, “But Jo, your hair was your one beauty!” She was creative, abrasive,and so not in touch with herself as a female. And every time I got to the part where she said no to Laurie’s marriage proposal, I cried. heehee… Her journey seems like the quintessential teen journey of finding oneself and failing all over the place, all the while standing up for who you think you are. And in the process getting to know who you truly are, and who you want to become."
quote:"It’s not like any of the four major networks have the best track record when it comes to Asian representation, but one in particular stands out head and shoulders above the rest this fall—the CW, the network merger of the WB and UPN. Aside from a handful of “urban” shows it inherited, the network’s focus is on shows featuring pretty white people like Gossip Girls and the new 90210. With hapa Kristin Kreuk no longer on Smallville, the landscape is even worse.
We all know there are plenty of good-looking, slutty, superficial Asian Americans in real life—the perfect types to appear on a typical CW show, so let’s reflect reality in all its dimensions."

quote:"There is something special when women come together. It is such a comfortable, warm and truly inspiring experience. About 15 ladies got together last night at my place, and it was soooo beautiful. We ate, chatted, avoided stepping on the dog, and really just hung out. A lot of our time was spent introducing each other and sharing why we value and love the ladies we brought with us… There were some tears. Okay, a lot of tears. haha… we are such girls. I love it…"
quote:"Okay. So exciting times! We here at GBD are looking for a passionate and committed group of teen females to be our Teen Board of Directors. Now, this will require a wee bit of responsibility and time… As in: you are able to respond to e-mails promptly and are willing to meet on-line (Skype, forum, chat, etc) twice a month. But the fun stuff will be soooo worth it! heehee.
Girls will get to be an integrial part of building the company. They will be a part of testing, giving feedback on company ideas as well as generating ideas and helping GBD stay in touch with the ever changing needs of the teen market.
Here is your challenge should you wish to play: Send us a creation of ANY kind (anything that can be sent via e-mail) that shows us you are the kind of person who we would love to have as a voice in our company! Woot! We are so excited to hear from you. E-mail to email@example.com! Due Date: October 1st!"
Question: Got anything big on Smallville? (Get it? Big on small?) -- Josh Ausiello: You're brilliant! Smallville is putting the finishing touches on what I'm told are two of the biggest episodes in years -- 8.10 and 8.11. The former marks the return of Lana, while latter is being penned by celebrated comic book writer Geoff Johns. "
quote:"You know Kristin Kreuk as the half-Chinese half-German hottie on Smallville. Admit it, all you men out there watch this show primarily to see her - and now you guys can drool over her while she plays a familiar character in your favorite childhood video-game, Street Fighter. Based on Capcom of Japan’s classic video game, Kreuk stars in the upcoming movie Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li as Chun-Li. The movie is expected to hit the big screens in February 2009."
quote:"OG: And Kristin Kreuk, she is in this season, right?
BP: Yeah. She'll be in five episodes in the middle of the season. And we kind of see a new side of her when she comes back, which is fun.
OG: Is it the Chun Li side?
BP: Kinda! We wanted to give her character the finale that she deserves. More than, certainly, the videotape we ended the finale with. That's gonna be a really fun run as well. I actually can't wait to see her as Chun Li. We did one episode in China and she was just phenomenal. She did her own wire work and she just kicked ass. "
quote:"What inspired your move into web entrepreneurship? With the position I’m in I can have an impact on teenage girls. I don’t think there’s much out there that’s valuable to help. Everything seems to drag young women down. The message seems to be: ‘Buy a bunch of products and you’ll feel better in your life.’ There’s not much to encourage them to be expressive, creative or confident. I wanted to do a magazine where the pictures wouldn’t be airbrushed but I discovered how much it costs to launch. Kids aren’t reading magazines much any more, either, so we’ve done it online.
You’re in the new Street Fighter film – how are your martial arts skills? Pretty decent. I did karate, dance and gymnastics when I was growing up so I was good at the wire work for the fight scenes. I spent five weeks training with stunt coordinators. I don’t know if I could kick your ass if we met on the street but I’m decent at looking like I’m good at fighting."
quote:"The awesome new addition to our family! He is too cool… I only had rabbits growing up, and my poor father ended up taking care of them, so this puppy is a really crazy experience. There is a whole new heartbeat in the house, and a whole lot of snorting. Like seriously, you would think there was a pig here! He is going to be a pretty big Frenchie… Right now he is 4 and a half months, and his paws are freakin huge, and he is already bigger than Kernie (Kendra’s dog and GBD mascot–BTW it is Kernie’s B-day today, Happy 5th)!
We haven’t named our little guy yet… What do you ladies (and gentlemen) think we should call him?
I was told stories since before I was born. Once I learned to read I never stopped. I was that oh-so-cool kid who broke the rules by hiding under my covers past bedtime with a flashlight reading. I read out loud to my sister and my cousins ALL the time. And now I am an actor. Human stories, stories of humans. Who we are, why we are, how we can be better… Finding the honesty and the depth in all types of people and experiences. I love that stuff. So when I watched this I got soooo excited. What beautiful ways to share and collect the stories we are already telling. What creative ways can you peeps think up to share your stories?? Perhaps we could create something together… Thoughts?"
quote:"Kristin Kreuk, Smallville's resident sweetheart, will be playing as Chun-Li while big man Michael Clarke Duncan will play as the Vegas boxer, Balrog, and Minority Report's Neal McDonough will be the tyrant M. Bison, who was last played by the late-great Raul Julia on its previous big screen debut. Ironically, Mortal Kombat movie star Robin Shou will play as Street Fighter Alpha master, Gen, in this title. Shou played as Liu Kang in the MK movies."
quote:"The film hinges on a single act of monumental courage. A Sikh war veteran played by Jimi Mistry (his first decent lead since East is East) plucks a young Muslim girl from certain death when she is trapped by religious extremists on the rocky road to Pakistan. Kristin Kreuk’s terrified beauty hides behind Mistry’s wooden gates while he faces down the village bigots with his noble profile and sad eyes."
quote:"Gian, a Sikh soldier played by Jimi Mistri (best known for his role in East is East), resigns from the British Indian army for a quiet life. On his way home he rescues Naseem (Kristin Kreuk), a young Musilm girl from a massacre and they fall in love. As their love flourishes and eventually finds acceptance in Gian’s village, the search for Naseem’s family goes on. When it proves successful, their delicate world is shattered. "
