Hype as in things we hyped, things we got together
and did, things for fun. Just like anything else,
hype is to swa fei. Swa fei is fun and it leaves
memories. I know a few people who work their butts
off in and out of school, just for school. And
worse, when I ask them what they want to do, they're
not sure. Well maybe they think skool work is
fun. I don't. Skool depletes a lot of my energy
and zombifies me. We create our own fun. We hype
what we want. Screw the trends; we create our
trends. So, hype, as in what we hyped together.

- 11th grade, benbry, amdrew, nr9, tomkit, nick,
mankit, asy_9 - gathering at Baseball Park for
mass tag, aka "puja
germs" (which is pretty damn mean...
name was borrowed) for that afternoon; badminton
after. Not really a project, but sort of a recreational
reaction to the puja germs song, the first song
to complete in the Mankit CD.

A good phrase.

- Promoting localness.
TAS being its own culture (which dumbly, doesn't
fit properly into a real US culture nor the
Taiwanese culture), is hidden from the fact
that locals are cool. Hmm, I don't really know
if my list is complete... pretty much everybody
was involved in some local hype. I wasn't that
involved, but I agree that locals are good and
much of TAS is ignorant about this fact.
more hype; touch chin, ufc, loop hit trick
