searching, still searching for that video of me

as of late i have been perusing vietnamese websites more and more. okay, just timnhanh and yume since theyre the only vietnamese websites i know that allows video uploading. i'm trying to find a video which the guard at tissot hcmc branch ( ______________ ! insert expletives) took without my consent some time ago. i find it flattering and creepy and creepy and creepy, having a complete stranger flash a camera in my face. since i'm super paranoid, i'm thinking it would be one of those videos labeled vietnamese woman cheap. or perhaps, filipino woman cheap. if only i could remove any sexual meaning from it. for what use exactly would a man take a video of a woman he doesnt know? but women are so othered, so sexualized.

my brother, the karate kid

(the sight of that boy wearing headband, hollywood's idea of teenage boy's virility during the 80's, is just precious...)

i was watching tv a few days ago when i chanced upon karate kid, and of course i remembered my brother. because for me karate kid = my brother and my male cousins as teenagers (who were older than me). he's the reason i probably watched almost all the bond , bruce lee and jackie chan movies during that time. (drunken master anyone?) he's also the reason i knew about leprosy before i went to school.(watch ang panday) i also think he and my cousins were the reason i associate porn to a particular type of jazz, but that's another matter. it needs be mentioned that we watched these movies on betamax.

aside from having the same parents, love for movies is the only thing i have in common with my brother, then and now.

i can only wonder......
