#SorryAsianParents EP04 Post-Election Thoughts w/ Yanez and Jerry

Heeelllllooooo,

Welcome back! I am still here and making these ever-so-long videos. Usually, we try to keep things light and comical, cuz, you know, sorry Asian parents, but this time we are going dark . . . wayyy dark. As you may know, the 2020 election has happened, and we’re currently still in the mix of everything, so we’re going to beat a dead horse, or elephant, that’s still in the room. My friend Yanez and Jerry will be joining me today to talk about how we feel post-election, post-Trump (if he leaves the White House), and everything in between. 

I know that this topic is hot and everyone has their opinion and we have ours. In this video, we will share a few laughs, give our spicy take on things, and probably step on a few toes . . . so keep that in mind if you do decide to watch this. Whether you agree with our opinions or not, I ask just keep an open mind and remember this is just a conversation with three civilians trying to understand our political state in today’s America. Also, I tried to fact-check every statement that we made to cover our asses in case we needed to. For everything else, there’s Google.

We recorded this video on Friday the 13th! I would have had this video out sooner if I didn’t have to edit some stuff out (like the Jordan Klepper segment on The Daily Show, “The Divinity of Donald Trump.”) 

*Disclaimer (again)

We’re not political experts or anything; we’re just concerned citizens who wanted to talk about the 2020 election and how it has affected our lives. If you feel as if our conversation might offend you, then you should probably STOP WATCHING now. We mean no harm and don’t want to offend. We are just here to have some laughs while getting some things off our chest.

#SorryAsianParents Ep03 Stupid Stories About Growing Up in Visalia and Sucking at HS Football

 

Hi hi,

So this was supposed to come out last Friday, and I couldn’t post it because I was working on a farm. No Internet and knuckles deep in three different types of manure…not fun.

On this ep, we got ourselves a foursome. Kevin, Chris, Andrew will be joining me to talk about some of the stupid things we did growing up in Visalia, CA. Spoiler alert, we did them because we were bored, so we drank a lot. We also talk a little about playing high school football. Not that we were good or anything….we sucked, so now we’re just laughing at ourselves, talking about how it was growing up in Visalia.

If you want to laugh at some kids being dumb @$$ or hear of what we think of our hometown today, give us a go…pretty, please. Also, share your “legal” stories too. If you got them.

PS!!!! I just now realized I forgot to add a title to my last video….Yes, I am a dumbass.

First #SorryAsianParents Video w/ Daniel About EDC 2013

 

Hello, y’all.

I know it’s been a while since I posted something on this thing. And lately, I’ve just been posting videos from my project with my friends and I. I hope to get some good, painstakingly long writing to y’all soon. The last two months have been a little crazy with my brother passing and me contracting COVID/pneumonia. But I’ve recovered and promise to get some stuff down soon. But in the meantime, here is a video my long time buddy Daniel and I created for my #SorryAsianParents YouTube channel.

I know I have two other channels (Weebthusiast and Stage Name Comedy), but this one is primarily going to be me putting my friends on blast via the Internet. For this channel, it’s going to be recordings of my friends and I telling old stories or just exploring our thoughts about random things or current events with little to no filter. So expect a lot of videos of us yelling into the mic or getting excited at the most obscured things. And we’ll prob have a book club on the side.

So, I hope y’all enjoy it because as long as quarantine is going on, more of these “learning experiences” videos will be made!

 

 

 

Hi-hi. I guess this is the first video on this channel and what a better way to start it off than with one of my oldest friends talking about stupid shit we did. In this video, we are recapping (reliving) the most excellent Electric Dasiy Carnival EVER!!! 2013. Well, the one with the best friendship lineup ever, at least. You get to listen to some of our “coming of age” stories from EDC like the pool parties, neglecting responsibilities, and all-out good times with the ZipperSquad. Yes, I know. But it was the early music festival days, so everyone had a name for their squad.

I hope some of this gibberish can help those of you who are missing festival season right now during this quarantine. Times are tough, and we will get through it together. If y’all have a story y’all like to share, then post in the comments below. Bye-bye.
