    Interesting to note how much the Western world has become fascinated with things Asian- particularly anime, manga, japanoise, Chinese vases, etc. etc.

    Alas, perhaps this phenom is the "Asian Persuasion" thing... Any leverage with this cultural facet?

    Spasiba! ;)

    Not a terribly new phenomenon though. "China" (ceramics), asian spices, silk...

    True... Europe of the Victorian era was known for having these sorts of fads... like there was the Egyptology thing. And then all the operas that took place in the East.

    The far east is also facinated with american culture. I guess its how "different" it is that makes it cool.

    I guess you could say that my asian persuasion tends towards a very cute 27year old Indian man. :D

    Balle! Balle!

    :) Cute.

    Odd, I now have a hankering for sugar cane candy and slow dance to Dariush.

    I've found the interest in Asian tattoos very funny.

    I have family members (white and hispanic) who've gotten them. They have no idea if they even say what they think the say, they just take the word of the person who did the work. I took a picture of a cousins tattoo to an Asian coworker who said it roughly means what he thought it said but not exactly. English phrases don't always translate well into Asian languages.

    Yeah, someone gets a tattoo that thet think says 'Fighting Spirit' in kanji but really means 'Little Penis'. :eek: And then they wonder why they can't get dates with asian woman :p


    Not speaking from experience as I do not have any tattoos -- or a little penis for that matter either :D
