Seasons greetings to all, and may your holidays be spent with your family and the friends that have become like family. The tafBlog happily gifts this most excellent minute-long video clip of WOOSHA from TAF2010, aka the amaZOMG family group game. For the TAF alum who don’t know what WOOSHA is, think of it as Big Booty multiplied by 20 with a square root of awesome.


TAF 2010 PHOTOS!!!!

As a whole, tafLabs collected over TEN THOUSAND PHOTOS during this year’s TAF – holy moly! So we’re very excited and happy like Melody to finally share many more photos captured during TAF2010 with all of you!

Thankfully, we’ve whittled that number down to a nice and tidy 480 photos for now. You’ve seen about half of them before. Some of these pics are edited, some are not, many are touching, too few are embarrassing, but all of them are meant to preserve the memories of Loving Out Loud at TAF2010. So if you saw a picture of you and your friends that you liked in the Yearbook or Slideshow, you can right-click and save the photo! And better yet, the images are sized to a resolution of 1600, perfect for new desktop wallpapers! Our suggestion is to view them using the “View with PicLens” just above the start of these thumbnails and using your arrow keys to flip through this epic gallery. WOOSHA!

Keep checking back as we hope to add more photos, including small groups!

TAF Night 2010 – Swing Choir Update

Woohoo TAF Night acts! We’ll be uploading all the acts in the next week or so, or as much as our TAF Blog upload speed allows. We wanted to get the program swing choirs out to you first though, so everyone can spend this weekend learning (or re-learning) all the amazing moves!

JH “Better Than YOUth”

Youth “Pretty Girl Swag”

Youth “Got More Swag”

We’ve had an amazing week with everyone, and have much more video footage to come so keep staying tuned! Just because we’re all leaving Manchester College for another year in a few hours doesn’t mean the TAF spirit is over as well. TAFLOVE 365 y’all!


The 30th birthday of the Taiwanese American Foundation’s annual summer conference starts TODAY! We here at the official TAF blog are excited to welcome those traveling in from across the country to Manchester College to LOVE OUT LOUD! And we hope for those of you following from home, either parents or past campers & staff unable to attend this year (insert sadface), this blog will keep everyone updated on the exciting events of TAF2010 and satiate some of the not-at-TAF Blues that can hit hard (insert more sadface). Maybe, just maybe, we can give the outside world a little taste of TAF (insert happy face!). There will be a plethora of updates and media content on display, such as the daily newsletter, video recaps, and other silly things, so stay tuned and share with others!

And to start you off right, we present to you a new music video called “TAF RULES”, starring Young Mingy feat. A.L.O. Enjoy and WELCOME TO TAF 2010!!!
