Keep on Wondering...

     Why, it's all to do with the following!

2. Analyzing and blasting said films
3. Films featuring Asian and Asian American actors
4. Musings on aforementioned films

6. And not just books, TV shows, more films...
7. Collages and pictures of said collages
8. Featured Asian/-American Cool People
