Happy New Year from AAV

Back after some time off for family, travel, and R&R, the editors at AAV wish everyone a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.

We hope some of you had a chance to take a look at our Asian American Village 2006 Year in Review, check out our holiday Secret Asian Man double feature, and see some of our year-end featured jobs specials from the IMDiversity job bank.

This week, we kick things off on an unfortunately less-than-happy note following the terrible New Year’s Eve bombings in Bangkok that left 3 dead and 38 wounded, in a news analysis by frequent contributor Andrew Lam.

On a brighter note, we've got another new piece about an exciting development: PBS the broadcast of My Life Disoriented, a new Asian American drama pilot that's running this month on Independent Lens.

We saw and really liked some of the early cuts (and posted the filmmaker's release earlier), and think it has a good chance of getting a longer life. We got in a new interview with some of the My Life Disoriented stars courtesy of our good friends at Sampan in Boston (where the show will on on WGBH Jan. 7).
