    well could one of you artists go ahead and make a video already. i mean, i tried to send my parents a video about life on guam for christmas, so they would know what life is like here on island. . . and the closest thing i could find was a video in which like 80% of the film took place in chamorro village. . . where the pretty much just talked about bbq.
    PLEASE! i wish i had some talent- cause then i could attempt one on my own.

    i loved everything and missed everything about the Island, except for the traffic. i saw three lanes of traffic not going anywhere and said to myself, “self, we can cut that traffic like a hot knife through butter with our spankin’ new fixxie!”

    This song (Breathe by Sia) is very close to my heart…so even before watching the entire film, I felt moved. I first heard it during the finale of HBO’s “six feet under”…when one of the female leads decides to make a big move and its the last scene as she’s driving away and sobbing uncontrollably. AND…when I decided to move back to Guam, this song was on repeat on my ipod for weeks on end and (it was even my myspace profile song, lol) I blasted it when I first drove my car from the warehouse on our open roads.
    This was a great find and just what I needed to end my heavy-minded week. Thank you Latitude 13, you rock! 🙂

    Great find Joshie. That was awesome.
    Just like Mimi, this song brings to mind that final episode of Six Feet Under.

    Yeah this video made its rounds sometime last year.
    Personally I found the video to be really cheesy, the song just slightly less stomach-churning than “2 girls, 1 cup,” and the editing to be rather pedestrian.
    No, I don’t know how to do any of it. That doesn’t mean I can’t think it’s pedestrian.
    This doesn’t necessarily stem from my own distaste for living in Guam. I was more bothered by how the video decided to portray the island, with sweeping shots of a just-built wedding chapel designed to milk money by manufacturing human warmth and a sacred ritual, the just-as-cultural-as-Spam Pleasure Island, and some nature shots that somehow give the locations an air of anonymity, rather than being iconic.
    This video, for me, is mostly representative of the underlying problem Guam has, which is a lack of a strong cultural identity, pride and stewardship. Instead the video is all too eager to portray Guam as a knock-off metropolitan area with horrible traffic and some out-of-the-way nature spots that could be from Tahiti as well as Guam. The video doesn’t do Guam justice. I hear more cultural pride in 2-minute Malafunkshun skits.
    This video was more of an eyesore than that one blog post about the spinning ballerina. 😉

    This is really beautiful! I am sure that if you challenged yourself you could come up with something greater. I believe you can! You do you very well!

  11. Gene Park says:

    Now that’s a goddamn lie.
    I’m a dirty, whorish and naughty Korean… not so much filthy.

    I’m not sure why. Funny story to go along with it as well.
    Thanks for sharing the video. Don’t let Gene discourage you from creating. He has very discriminating tastes. He thought I was cool until he met me in person and (eventually) realized that I didn’t have green eyes. After that, it was all down hill for me.
