Meanwhile, at the Museum...

Pretty much how any guy would feel
after seeing what a mastadon was packing.

Till Sudden Trauma to the Head Do You Part

A good sharp headbutt should do it,
Julie thought as her aged and filthy rich
groom moved in to help her out of the car.

Two Cambodian Girls

and the Meaning of their Young Lives

Mary spent her childhood pondering her life's
incongruous mix of poverty and contentment,
and whether escaping the former
would mean losing sight of the latter.
Julie only cared about making funny noises
blowing on pieces of grass.

Camera Shy or Politically Savvy?

Manuel didn't care what the guy offered him,
no way he was going to
"Just look at the camera and say Trump."

Meanwhile, Out On The Water...

Arthur's shoulder really was sore from badminton.

But it didn't look like anyone else was going to
jump in and try to save Barry.

Gangsta River Cruise in the Malaysian Interior

The one they called 'The Plunger' stared at his victim.
"Now?" he whispered to his boss. "Can I do him now?"

Ramone sucked on his cheeba, long and deep. "Patience," he breathed. "Wait until the river is at its deepest. Then..." He blew the smoke from his lungs and stroked his mullet. " can escort our white invader overboard."

Ricky just let his hands hang loose between his knees. He loved this shit.

to combine his love of cooking
with his dream of becoming

On the Mean Streets of Northern Thailand

"Just make some funny faces,
he'll give us candy or something..."

"...Or money! Ooh!
Maybe he'll give money!..."
"Hey man, check this!
Susan got a light saber,
that's Jabba the Cat
and I'm usin' the force
like a mind trick yo!" 

"So it's like that then?
You just gonna walk away?
('Kick his ass, Willie!')
...Cheap-ass whitey..."
('Kick his ass!')

Imperfect Dreams in the Thai Royal Military

Someday, young Permsik promised himself.
Someday it will be ME wearing the raspberry beret! Someday it will be ME in front!
Steering! And braking! Yes, braking!
Yes, someday that beret will be on MY head!
But...what of my hair?...
