Back in June, 1st Lt. Ehren Watada -- a Japanese American Honolulu native -- refused deployment to Iraq because he believes the war is illegal and immoral. Watada became the first commissioned officer to publicly refuse deployment to "the unlawful Iraq War and occupation."
Well, I don't know how I missed this news, but People Magazine's latest Sexiest Men Alive issue (that would be George Clooney, again, according to People) includes actors John Cho, Daniel Dae Kim, and Edison Chen (star of the Grudge2 and a Hong Kong pop star), and also Survivor's Yul Kwon (profiled in the mag's section entitled "Sexy Men in Sexy Environments.")
Jeff Yang comments on the men in his Asian Pop column
Do You Think We're Sexy?From Gedde Watanabe in 16 Candles to Daniel Dae Kim in Lost, it seems like the image of the Asian male has come a long way, baby. Or ... has it?
What a weekend! Thanks to everyone who attended our Music Issue Release party on Friday at 111 Minna. All Hyphen events are fundraisers and the money we earn goes right back into printing and promoting the magazine. So thanks to everyone for the support, especially to those who subscribed.
Dear Hyphen Reader,
We're always talking about ourselves over here. (Well, it is our blog). Now it's time for you to tell us about you. We're conducting a reader survey to find out who you are and what you like and don't like about Hyphen. It's all about making it a better magazine for you, so have your say!
And if that's not a lofty enough goal for you, we'll throw in another incentive: you could win a prize. Survey participants who give us their contact info could win a Hyphen t-shirt or a CD by various bands. (Of course, if you don't want to give us your contact info and enter the prize drawing, you don't have to. You can be anonymous if you like.)
The survey originally ran in the print version of Issue 10, so it assumes you have a copy of the magazine. If you've never picked up a print copy of the magazine, you can still take the survey. Just let us know that you don't have a copy of the mag and why.
It only takes a few minutes to answer the questions. So we hope you'll share your thoughts with us.

Love, the all-volunteer staff of Hyphen
