OK, I swear this is the most wonderful thing ever.

http://www.geocities.com/asianprince213/

Go to that site, then click on all of the pages at the bottom, starting with "Bad Boy Life"

It's been a long time since I've laughed this hard. Please everyone back me up on this.

That is hilarious Marxboy.
One of his possible dates is Mayim Bialik ("Blossom").

I too found this site to be both interesting and amusing. I even left a friendly message in his guestbook, but was horrified when I read through a few of the pages of other messages.

Perhaps I am naive, but there was so much hatred in what people were saying. Is the Net really so full of pure nastiness and the desire to spoil her peoples fun?

Well I suppose computer viruses are the evidence that it is.

Folks if you do go there, and it's worth the trip, please think of leaving a small friendly message in the guestbook. You don't have to be honest. It is the Net, after all.

I wish I were a rich recording artist with gold jewerly.

Clever? Not really.

Funny? Hell yes!

Real? Of course not. Come on, nobody would really make a web page like that for themself, but dammit, it's fun to pretend, ok?

And to all the rest of you:

Thank you! ::bows:: Thank you!

I have submitted this to TubaDiva for Wierd Earl's consideration.

Well if you do a search on google on Tuan Anh it appears that there might really be a Vietnamese singer of that name who looks like that.

Or someone has gone to an incredible lot of bother. Speaking Vietnamese would help to figure out just what the truth is

I found Tuan Anh somewhere on that site and google gives this site
http://www.asianjoke.com/pictures/tuan_anh.htm
which definitely is the same guy. Can't mistake that groovy moustache! OK Asianjoke.com doesn't inspire confidence but you can click through to this site
http://www.vietmedia.com/music/singe...Topic=TUAN+ANH

which is conveniently in Vietnamese and lacks photos.

Ah found it. On the page about his music, he says he recorded under the name Tuan Anh and there does seem to be a real artiste of that name. Who no doubt would be heartily pissed off by this site.

My favorite quote from this site: "My favorite color is light purple and I am very intelligent" (from the Pictures section0

That's genius. I'd like to shake the hand of the person who made this site. They should go to http://www.engrish.com/index.html for some more inspiration on wording.

Oh, hello there. You caught me styling my thick, beautiful hair which was dented along with my car and the six gorgeous girls I keep in my back seat But don't worry; I can always get more girls and wigs, as money is no object for me. Fortunately my face (have you ever seen a more stunning one?) was unblemished. Not that it would have mattered much, as I can afford constant plastic surgery well into the 12th millenium.
Ah, the autograph hounds have found me. Mustn't disappoint them, although if they become annoyed, I'll just buy more...
Good stuff,MarxBoy.

This IS one hilarious site, but it's been around for quite some time. He has updated it quite a bit, but I definitely remember somebody at Snopes about a year or so ago pointing us in that site's direction.

IIRC, it's most definitely a joke. I think it's quite a well done joke, however. What amazes me are the people who think he's for real.

It'd be even funnier if he was!

And Redboss, I agree with you about the hateful people that were spewing venom all over his guestbook. I think it was hardly called for, but the best part is he DID fool them into thinking the site's legit. I guess the joke is on them!

I can't figure this, on his photo gallery in the section 'A prince in search of a princess'on hte section where he mentions all his jewellery he is shown in deeply moody relflective type pose holding a deeply moody cigarette but...
In the last photo of that section he says

Quote:
I'm giving a smile to all the women out there! Since I don't smoke, my teeth are pearly white.
Remember to right click 'cause the 'Asian prince is so hot!!'

LOL! I am jealous of his thick, long, fluffy hair. I do so want to see the backseat of one of his sexy modified vans.
But seriously, the way he looks in his photos (oddly feminine) remind me of pictures of Indian deities like Krishna- an odd combination of male/female features. I wonder what the real story is.

Asian Prince has a MULLET!



I'll bet http://www.jesus.com would probably be a good bet too.

This dude-Asian Prince-looks like that guy from that video, the one that went, "I'm crucified, crucified, like my savior!" It was on Beavis and Butthead, with two-and don't take this the wrong way-REALLY fem guys dressed in lace prancing around and this girl with huge breasts wearing a lacey 1700s type dress sitting in a bathtub, or something?

Help me out, here.

My pleasure, Guinastasia. You're thinking of a band called Army of Lovers. The song is, aptly, "Crucified," off their album "Massive Luxury Overdose."

Well, he says in the caption of the cigarette shot, "I don't smoke the cigarette was used for effect."

Quote:

And the status bar continually reads, "Ashley is good in bed! Laura is hot too!"

The minute I saw this, I thought of that other fake site, with the really unattractive Asian guy saying "Am I not hot?" Anyone notice that that same guy is on the "Possibly Gay Males" page? (FTR, he's a character actor, and I doubt he thinks he's hot, but he does make a decent living getting kicked about by Chow Yun-Fat and other such action stars.)

It says that Tuan Anh is a male singer unlike any other, and apparently has been at it for more than ten years. He was influenced by Boy George, but now Boy George has been forgotten, and Tuan Anh is by himself. He likes white and the number nine. (I'm not sure why they mention that either.) He came to the U.S. in 1979, after spending some time studying at the college of sciences in Saigon. When he got here, he decided to follow a musical career, and got his start at the Maxim's club is Houston, TX.

That's the gist of it anyway. I've seen his posters up in Little Saigon. I always thought he was a woman wearing a fake moustache too, and I guess I just ignored the (male) name "Tuan Anh" under the strangely attractive picture.

That was supposed to be Imelda Marcos.

Did anyone read his guestbook entries? There is some seriously homophobic, hateful crap in there. If this guy is for real, I'd be concerned. There is everything in their from suggestions that he should kill himself to death threats.
