Here are a selection of micro-videos that amply illustrate what is going on in Asia this summer. With that being said, let it be well understood that there is quite a bit going on, let me tell you all. And it is all so very different from what you would find in the West that it becomes noteworthy, though rather difficult to classify individually. Here, the videos depict China, Vietnam, Thailand, and Japan.
I hope that you all will enjoy these micro-videos and visions of Asia as much as I do.

Local Popular Music
All through Asia there are small groups of musicians that are making their scene. They are notable in very many ways. One of the things that I like about them, are their own individual uniqueness. You wont find clones of Nicki Minaj here. Thank goodness.
Of course, I have other earlier posts that delineate the many, many musical venues and styles that are present in China. What I happen to like is the way that traditional music is fuzed with popular Western musical styles. Merged, they result in a very interesting sound.
Such as this example.

No pics of protests in Hong Kong?
No videos of re-education camps and organ harvesting facilities?
These are fun.
No pics of the laborers in Chinese fields or sweatshops producing electronics
Let me say this once, and say it clearly: to hell with China.
Tom&Jerry at the airport instead of CNN?
Now that is a huge improvement!
"...and the Egg Fu Yung, here..? (waves hand & rolls eyes in exhasperation) TO DIE FOR..!!!"
Are you making fun of the size of Asians?
I'll take my chances.
Fascinating blog. Brings back memories of our time in Asia (HK to be precise). Thank you for posting.
Wouldn't want to blow a fuze.
See, it's not even clickbait.
