Literary Material

Okey-dokey. I write about The Philippines. I try to capture the darkness and light of my people. I write about the 1980's alot--my decade! Well. This video incorporates alot of that. It's been making the rounds of alot of Asian American blogs and sites, because it's incredible. In The Philippines, one of the ways that they get prison inmates in the city of Cebu to exercise is by choreographing classic dance numbers. Like this one, where the inmates dance to Michael Jackson's Thriller. There are over a thousand of them.
There's alot of literary material there.

Wow, Noel, I spotted like two dozen of your family members in that video!

Don't the Alumits know that it is wrong to steal electronics and hump animals?

Prince, next time I see you, I'm gonna kick your ass. I only have one dozen family members in that video!

that was quite hilarious. Also check out a Bollywood rendition of the same song. When I say rendition, I mean total knock-off

Indian Thriller

A friend sent me this video recently, and I was seized by a sudden desire to travel to the Philippines and commit a crime. If they ever do anything from Newsies, I'm there.
