Toil under the sun

What does man gain from all his labor at which he toils under the sun?

2: 11
I denied myself nothing my eyes desired; I refused my heart no pleasure. My heart took delight n all my work and this was the reward for all my labor. Yet when I surveyed all that my hands had done and what I had toiled to achieve, everything was meaningless, a chasing after the wind; nothing was gained under the sun.

hands wrinkled with age stretch out to soak up something unfamiliar

Hey guys,

I just wanted to reach outto you and ask for your support in spreading the word on a web series I'm involved with.

I'm sure most of you know by now that I'm involved with a web series called KTOWN COWBOYS. We premieredit at the APA Film Festival in LA and Sold Out 600 seats and won an award for Best First Narrative Feature Film. We then released it as a web series a couple of months ago and have been releasing anew episode every week.

We all know that Hollywood is point blank racist. They rarely create any good roles for people of Asian descent.Youtube and web series has been a new channel for underrepresented ethnicities to get their work out. For me, its been a platform to promote myself as an Actor and gain the exposure I need to get work on a grander scale. The more hits you get on these channels themore these industry people take your project serious. There are so many other projects out there that are trash but get millions of hits just becausepeople support them and then in turn, the major studios give them deals.

KTOWN COWBOYS has been a huge success in LA and its pretty much the buzz of the city. I have people come up to me everywhere I go because of this web show. But this is just one town. There's no reason why I shouldn't be able to reach my hometown in NY through the power of the internet. That's why I'm asking if you guys can show your support and please spread the word. All it takes is a Post on your page and word of mouth.

This road that I'm traveling is not an easy one. I've sacrificed and left everything I love back home and traveled across the country to be in a city that I hate but I'm trying to make the most of it because I believe in what I'm doing. It seems almost impossible at times but I'm willing fight the fight. I only ask for your support. Please spread the word. Thanks for the taking the time out. I really do appreciate it. Can't wait to be back home.

Because James Told me too and I've been way too lazy to updatee- My defense of KTOWN (We'll be seeing a lot of each other this semester)

This was my comment taken in response to the blog entry by I'm not a Writer.
(A business man that can write is a very dangerous man)

Hey James,
Although I agree with a lot of your points, I actually believe that there is a lot that K-TOWN can do for the furtherment? of Asian Americans, maybe without meaning too.
The stereotypes you listed are extremely prevalent, but I think the ones you are mixing that have to deal with Asian accents (the way Asian American speech is depicted) and Asian American sexuality ( which is the whole you knowwwwwww)

Seeing Korean Americans as fun loving, drunk, and brash individuals is an entirely new direction for Asians on TV. Today if Asian Americans are not depicted still as Martial Artists or foreigners, they are given extremely generic roles as COP #4 or Doctor #2.

So it's interesting to see Asian men who are looked in a sexual sense with all the boozing and hooking up. Asian women who don't perpetuate violin playing, straight A students.

I feel like KTOWN will follow in the example of Harold and Kumar by showing not all of us can be extremely successful businessmen like YOU lol.

Something I thought was unique for Jersey Shore was how much pride both Italian "Mike the Situation" and non-italian JWOW and Snooki had for being a guido.
I sincerely hope the cast of KTOWN don't refer to themselves as gooks or something other misguided terminology but I'm sure because it looks as if they will be exclusively partying in KTOWN that they will have a lot of KOrean pride, somehting completely absent in TV today.

For me Gay porn makes for at least interesting TV.

Next post the KTOWN COWBOY that hates California. Miss ya Petterrrrr.
