Yo Yo Ethno! - A Short Documentary

After taking some time off to vent my displeasure at murderous terrorists in Iraq, I resume what the Telepathic Brinjalees set out to do waaaay back in the first second post.

Presenting: a video-ethnography I did in 2003, with the wonderful 'n graceful Farin B Salleh and sweet 'n petite Joanie Koh, examining the identity crises issues the youth hip-hop subculture in Singapore faces. Befittingly, this mini-docu's entitled: Yo Yo Ethno! After Joanie suggested it, it sounded so crazily crass that we all had a good laugh. But still. It's a great title. I love it.

So enjoy it, but it's a bit huge though, 100-over mb. I'm not too sure how to stream it, and whether Internet Archive allows it. If anyone has any bright ideas, let me know.
