Every love that made me lose my reasoning. Every chord that made my conscience ache. Every day spent counting hours. Well, none of them comes close to singing back a song inside my head.
I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.
Everybody's been dropping "chink in the armor" puns like crazy since that Jeremy Lin headline!
I don't know. Sometimes, when I look at myself in the mirror and there's several Asians in the room, I don't know which one is me. As for Asians being open game, I wouldn't say so. I mean Grump and I make fun of ourselves a lot, but the whole Jeremy Lin thing has shown that in general people are too politically correct to take a joke. I mean, changing his B&J's flavor just because it's got fortune cookie in it? Get a sense of humor ffs!

Personally I am partial to Filipino " Black Dog " . *
* Seated one night after returning from the Napali Coast on the island of Kauai I found my self at a " LUAU " after being on the camping trail for a week . Funny I thought to myself as I was invited :
" wow how's that for luck here I am a stranger and now seated with a plate of all kinds of stuff . "
As I ate the first shock was when I was asked how I liked the " Fish Eyes " of which I thought at first were dried salted olives and I smiled and said yes .
Next was the biggy as the nice local Filipino martial arts instructor dude who invited me as I walked past his home that night -
" Oh " - said he :
" You like [BLACK DOG ] "
I was raised in a huge farming area with lots of farm laborers including Filipinos and I knew what they ate and as my newly made friend asked I just sort of smiled as I swallowed their pet .Heh heh - it didn't taste bad , kind of good to be truthful with a cold San MiguelI ate all kinds of crazy stuff in Mexico when on many a surfing safari there like [ smoked crickets with corn fungus ] ( this fungus is considered a gourmet delight comparable to Italian white truffles ) , went down smoooooooovely with a cold Dos Equis
Easy All :
It started for me with Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in 54 on a Blues Harp and progressed , then life .....some death ....Evolving as I went like a small rock in a stream rounding out as I went with the flow as I go through the white waters and waterfalls of life . Life has always been interesting to me
Meee Loooove you LOoooooooong Tiiime!
I sat on it for a little bit. Thats what he said.
I guess if its not okay for Carlos Mencia to pick at Mexicans... I guess its not okay for me to casually be throwing out Racial slurs of the Chieneseses. Sorry guys... I'll start use my own nationality's racial slurs.
We still all look the same.
