http://www.ladyboyreview.com/index.php?/topic/8286-edward-sweeney-in-vietnam/#comments I had felt like posting this for weeks since I completed watching ES's videos posted by Duke007. I had tried to explain that I know cities visited by ES probably better than he (ES) did but Duke007 hoovered the post in a typical PY style. However, although I don't want to spend too much energy to struggle for the truth, I would like to add a review of Edward' Sweeney's videos, not that I want to flame out what he did but many forums mates wouldn't have hesitated to flame me if I had posted such approximative information. To start with, I must reckon that Edward Sweeney makes very good quality videos. I am talking of his filming and his mastery of his video tools, hardware and software. I wish I would be able to make such good quality videos. I would probably create my own Youtube channel at least to post counter reviewing videos of Vietnam. Having said that, I don't find so much interesting stuff in ES's videos. I don't know if his way of speaking is so colorful as it seems to be, but as a non native English speaker, they bore me and I feel sleepy before watching the half of a video. I can't blame him for his language but I have noticed for long his habit of filming his big face on half of the screen letting less than the half in the background for what should be actually dealt with. Why not if what he says is so interesting ? BUT when I saw untrue information being developped in half of the videos, I must react at least to say that I can't agree with it. I've remained silent for a few months not only because I had been busy with Vietnamese ladyboys but also because I felt like flaming ES as a retarded idiot without culture and full of prejudice. I decided to wait till I would find time to write calmly on the subject. Again before criticizing his videos, I can't reach his level in video making. I started using my camera video mode during my last trip. I made a first attempt and believed it didn't work. So I kept the file and realized 2 weeks later that I had made a short video. I made a few more short videos but I missed what I think is the most important : find a subject and an opportunity to shoot people without being too much disturbed. Everyone remembers another short video I posted in another thread. On a technical point of view, this video is a crack. I spent a couple of hours though to improve it and add texts and logos. I am not a vlogger but what's in the video is more important than a vlog spreading fake information. (At least in my eyes) The first thing that jumps at you when watching ES's videos is his lack of culture. I can't judge whether he is cultured or not, but like many white men, he is unable to adapt to a foreign culture. I don't know if he is a farang racial supremacist but he seems to act as one, at least he must have some kind of britannomorphism in his mind. The world was made neither by British nor by American people and one should consider that local people may be as smart as white men to build their country at their own image. France paid an expensive price after forgetting this principle in Vietnam. In Vietnam, people pronounce « tr » as « ch » in western langages. «Left » is «trái», « white « is « màu trang » but it has to be pronounced « chy » or «mau chang ». Similarly the ladyboy in Hanoi « Trang » is called « Chang » (as in Chinese) when speaking. So the city’s Nha Trang is to be pronounced «Nia Chang » and not «Nia Tllang » as in ES’s video. In HCMC, the central post has kept its signs « la poste » in French and Sweeney is unable to say « la post » (as in English). This doesn’t sound serious. But it’s just a question of form. Now, let’s get down to bullshits. The first one I heard is that no one will hook up a girl in Hanoi. Did I hear correctly ? ES should have looked for real information on the net before saying such a fake information in his video. He should have watched videos like these ones:
