Leo Chiang, whose award-winning documentary A Village Called Versailles is up for yet another award– this time an Emmy Award, in the “Outstanding Continuing Coverage of a News Story – Long Form” category.

Hats off to the great work of Mary Queen of Vietnam Community Development Corporation (MQVN CDC), as well as the Vietnamese American Young Leaders Association (VAYLA).

jozjozjoz is a taiwanese-american gal who lives and blogs underneath the hollywood sign and who doesn’t clean her fishtank unless the fish starts to do the backstroke. she is also able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, but cannot stop from bumping into door handles, cabinet doors, and anything else that protrudes or has a sharp edge. she does not run with scissors for this same reason. she can pet the fur off a dog but don’t ask her to go anywhere near a horse. or a moth. or a roach. her dealings with L.A.’s finest (aka the parking violations department) are legend, as are her giant sneezes. Other than the two too many joz’s, jozjozjoz is a perfectly normal, relatively sane individual who defies the odds, reaches for the stars, and carries moonbeams home in a jar. She’d rather be a fish… but not in her own dirty fishtank. http://www.jozjozjoz.com
