Angry Reader of the Week: Raymond Lee

"Passivity is generally unattractive. Passion is almost always attractive."

All right, everybody. It's time, once again, to meet the Angry Reader of the Week, spotlighting you, the very special readers of this website. Over the years, I've been able to connect with a lot of cool folks, and this is a way of showing some appreciation and attention to the people who help make this blog what it is. This week's Angry Reader is Raymond Lee.

Who are you?

I'm Raymond Lee. I prefer Ray. Starbucks likes to call me Greg. I've stopped going to Starbucks.

What are you?

Everything I own is purposeful. I have shoes for every occasion. I like keeping up with dance trends. I would lose all motivation to live if hobbies stopped being a thing. I enjoy cuddling more than my wife does. Most of my Instagram time is spent watching basketball comedians. My love for the Lakers and R&B is genuine.

Where are you?

In my home in Atwater Village. Currently my wife is looming over me making sure no grammatical errors are being made. A basketball game is on TV. Right now my day is as I intended it to be.

Where are you from?

...I used to want to be in a gang so I could ask guys this same question.

I was born in New York, New York. I remember nothing of New York. I grew up mostly in Koreatown, Los Angeles and Glendale.

What do you do?

Currently I'm on a show on HBO called Here and Now, and in rehearsals for a play called Cambodian Rock Band going up at South Coast Rep. I am grateful to make a living as an actor and do not take it for granted.

What are you all about?

Right now:
Being interested and purposeful. Living with intention and seeking answers. Having a point of view and if I don't have one, working towards forming one, and then voicing them.

I find:
Passivity is generally unattractive. Passion is almost always attractive.

What makes you angry?

Leaf blowers. Pop-up ads. Institutionalized ignorance. When I let vegetables go bad I feel like I’m living wrong. The NRA. People who don't like dogs -- I don't trust them. These fucking degenerates who hunt rhinos and lions and elephants. Selective listeners. The white savior narrative.
