Playing HS Football in Visalia and the Fat Airec Chant – #SAP EP03

 

With a bunch of free time on my hands, I decided to go back and clip some of my older videos. This here video is from EP03 with Kevin, Andrew, and Chris, where we are talking about growing up in Visalia. In this clip, we talk about some cringy things we did in high school and talked about what it was like to play on a losing football team. It’s ok to laugh at us; I know I would. 

If you have any stories about high school and football growing pains, feel free to write them down below.

My COVID Story and Trying to Remember High School Bio – #SAP EP01.3

 

This video is part of the original recording I did with Daniel for my #sorryasianparents YouTube Channel. In this clip, I’m telling him about my COVID experience…Then we horribly try to explain how a virus works using our English Degree from SFSU. Boy, our biology teachers would be mad. We deff fail at this Asian part of our lives. All for laughs, am I right?

#sorryasianparents EP06 – Better Late Than Never: Finally Becoming Invested In Our Financial Future

Heeeellloooo,

I am back and this time with some new faces. Truth be told, I don’t know anything about finances. And it’s probably not surprising that many millennials, who also grew up poor, don’t “got dat money smarts” either. Thankfully, I have Rocky, Robert, Jan, and Josh here to explain to me stuff I should have known before I racked up all that credit card debt.

Join us as we talk about the stock market, cryptocurrency, big banks, the lack of financial education within the American public education system, and many more. I’m sure you’re tired of hearing that one friend who knows-it-all yap on about Bitcoin. Which is why I think you’ll enjoy a bunch of amateurs give their take on coins and stocks and what it all means for someone just dipping their feet in the investment pool.

A fair warning, even though we do give out some advice based on our investing journey, please take it with a grain of salt. Like a few of your bankers, we are not fiduciaries. What we know we learned from Reddit, YouTube, and failing. If you want some hardcore advice, then you’re probably in the wrong place. This video is just for some laughs as we discuss our scary, uncertain financial future. Oh, these student loans!!!

#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.

#SorryAsianParents – Kevin Telling Stories About His Father

 

Hi hi,

On this segment of SorryAsianParents, Kevin Chang will be joining me in my tiny apartment to catch up. He is one of my longtime friends from high school. We played football together and raised a little hell: disappointing our Asian parents one party at a time.

In our conversation, Kevin will tell me what he’s been up to, a bit of Hmong history during the Vietnam War, and about his family. We will gingerly touch on his relationship with his father….and you know how we Asian kids be with our Asian fathers. I want to thank him for sharing his family’s history with me, and now with you. Despite how many of us (first-generation Asian Americans) share the same story as Kevin and I, we are reluctant to talk about these small incidences that have shaped our lives. So let’s try and normalize it!!!

I’m honored he agreed to share his story with me and allowed me to post it on my passion project.  If y’all have any stories to tell about Laos, people from Southeast Asian, immigrant stories, or any tales of trying to live up to an Asian father (or mother), feel free to comment below and tell us. I know Kevin would love to hear other people’s experiences.

ps. I’m sorry for some of the framerate dropping here and there. I am in the process of getting new hardware soon so fingers crossed the next videos will run smoother. Bye, bye!!!

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.

Stage Name Comedy #02: Mental Health, Substance Abuse, and 3*tt Stuff

This is a quick video, I guess 40 min is quick, between Seth and I. The tone is a bit more serious than we intended due to the subject matter. We start off the convo with male anal foreplay and end it with a bright note about mental disorders and substance abuse. I want to remind everyone we’re not doctors so we may get some details wrong and we’re not giving anyone advice about anything. We are just talking about our experiences with alcohol, depression, social pressure on how to handle our emotions as a “man” and how I’ve experienced difficulty coming to terms with my *shudders in my computer chair* feelings as an Asian American male. I also apologize for my pj’s and shitty Internet connection.

Also, why does YouTube new uploading program kinda suck?

Stage Name Comedy Ep.00

So my buddy, Seth Austin, and I started a YouTube channel for vidcasting. It’s called Stage Name Comedy. We’re just some wannabe entertainers with our friends giving our unqualified opinions on current events or whatever else we find funny. This was just a mic check and testing out our format. The next recording I’m deff going to have better equipment.

Everything here is just for laughs and I’ll prob turn my lengthy blog post into video as well. We’re probably gonna make some enemies but I guess enjoy?

 

Well, this is two average joes giving our first unqualified opinion on interracial marriages, different levels of Karens, what two unemployed dreamers in La La Land have been doing, and the economy reopening up. Everything is meant to be jokes and fun so sorry if we offend, we did not mean
