Writings

These are various types of writings I have done. Some, which are most of the fictonal stuff, are more personal. It has been quite awhile since I have written much of anything, other than the screenplays for the film career of recent years. So, most of these ramblings may be dated and juvenile. Enjoy!

Essays, Interviews, & Articles

Miss Misery’s Last Doorway Productions (2009 – 2010): When I’m not working on a film project, working 9-to-5 as an UI prototyper, nor obsessing over the latest posts on Facebook, I’m moonlighting as a horror journalist for Miss Misery’s Last Doorway Productions site doing Q&A’s with various film industry folks associated within the horror industry.

AsianMall.com: Maggie Lee Interview (2002)
I recently interviewed Maggie Lee on AsianMall.com. She’s a Chinese-American singer hailing from Orlando, Florida, if y’all didn’t know. At only the age of 19 now, she seems ambitions and determined in pursuing her artistic career with full support from her parents. Which is a damn rarity among Asian-Americans. (Not to point any fingers!) But, it’s all good, you do what you love and the money will eventually follow… hopefully. { read it }

Starting early in the internet promotion of music, Kristine will be around for a long time on the WWW with power of new media. Listen (pun intended) to what she has to say. { read it }

 

Who I Am and Why I Do What I Do (1998)

Electric Shadows: Asians in American Films (1994)
Back in 1994, I wrote this essay for a class about Asians in the Media which decontstructed the state of the way Asians were portrayed in the media. Most may not recognize or remember the films mentioned in the essay but I believe my thoughts of Hollywood Asian America is still relevant today.

Fiction

“you seek truth, beauty, and wisdom…
it hurts more than hatred and loneliness to
attain them… you have to be ugly…”

The last of the monk wolves walks the Earth in seeking answers to his Origin. Half-man/half-beast, and part machine, he has learned his birth was the Creation of the Sexual Appetites of demons and angels. His Experience of Life polars between the conditions of Heaven and Hell. And his refuge lies only through Wisdom in Order to nurture his Immortality of his Flesh & Spirit. But, he must Suffer before he can get to the Good…

fic-asian :: AsianMall.com online fiction column

Fic-Asian was a fictional column that I briefly wrote for AsianMall.com in 2001. It was a writing concept that I had proposed as a short fantasy story with Asian-themed situations/characters. It ran the intro and the first story, “Untitled For Your Discretion”. I decided to pull it and place it here on rayhom.com because I felt it was too experimental for Asian Mall. The series continues as part of the Ugly Heaven universe. Hope y’all dig it…

Poems

You can’t write poetry on the computer.
– Quentin Tarantino

Below, are my attempts at poetry. Although, writing poetry was never my deepests desires, but the words come on to me like a stripper in a gentlemen’s club. And, I place my pen to paper like dollar bills to the strings of a thong. Whoa, that deepens to nothingness.

A.B.C./R.I.P. (1993-2001)
What I’m about to share with you is something I first wrote back in 1993 during my Coming-Of-Age years. Initial responses were either that it showed that “you’re proud of who you are” or “you sound very angry”. I’ve matured and am no longer the “youth-filled-rage” image portrayed in the poem. Nor am I as full of pride to blind my own shortcomings and, also, I feel that what I had to say in the poem was far too idealistic. But it was the first thing I’ve ever written and I felt liberated when I had written it. Let me get your first impressions…
