The New obsession.

I have new obsession. Before you create an uproar, I know, I've done it before.

Harry Potter? Eurovision? Antique Literature? (I should maybe keep that last one to myself..)

But this is different. Every time exam season comes around, I find a new passion....luckily this year has thrown up my favourite so far: Huge In Asia.

All weekend I've trawled through the group's vast video archive, and each has given me childish delight, to the point where the laughter became manic. The general jist is that two 20-somethings from the USA travel to Asia to become celebrities.

It's inspiring stuff, unlike the rest of the Youtube bandwagon, and made me ponder my future choices... Life is what you make it, and so many people take it more seriously than they should. Humour can be derived from almost any situation. Therefore the clash of culture between the brash (but kindly and enthusiastic) Americans, and their Asian counterparts is profound, and often hilarious.

If there's one blog/website that you subscribe to this year (other than mine, obviously, and Dann's) then this has to be it. The two film-makers are my new heroes, and have inspired me to achieve new levels of life-experience, and I hope they do the same for you.

Ch-ch-ch-ch-check it out.
Their Hanoi Music Video
Crossing The Rubicon
No Walk in the Park
Ghost-ride the Volvo

Hope you enjoy.

I was going to go interrailing this summer but my mate fell through, was so excited as well :( But now I think I'll just try and plan an epic Europe trip after first year.

Also, I heard the urine of the golden hairs is revered for its healing properties in Ghana.
