Crossing East: Refugee Dreams Revisited

Listen to Stage & Studio May 31st at 11 am on KBOO 90.7 FM. Dmae Roberts and MediaRites present Refugee Dreams Revisted as part of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. This special hosted by Margaret Cho focuses on the experiences of Southeast Asian refugees in Portland, and features Cambodian musician Daran Kravanh.

The refugees who came to America were Vietnamese, Cambodian, Laotian and the ethnic minorities from Laos—the Mien and Hmong. Most had fought on the same side and helped the US military in the war in Vietnam. The Mien and Hmong — the rural people in Laos — were particularly vulnerable for helping the CIA with covert operations. Staying in Laos was not an option.

Thu, 05/12/2011

Two very odd and popular webcomics are collected in book form by mainstream publishers, while their creators continue to innovate on the fringes of the internet.  Axe Cop, a fever dream of a comic featuring gun-toting dinosaurs and ninja moon warriors, is written by six-year-old Malachai Nicolle and illustrated by his 30-year-old brother EthanDash Shaw's BodyWorld originated as the digital equivalent of a biblical scroll, telling the otherworldly yet strangely familiar story of a quiet community entranced by a plant with telepathic powers.

Special thanks to Mel Reslor, who edited the Dash Shaw segment, and to Liam Delta for his recording assistance on the AxeCop segment.
