Did you bring the plastic men?

One of the best scenes in a movie I've seen in a long time, it's sort of out of context if you haven't seen the movie and a little hard to hear some of the subtle sounds that add so much to this fantastic piece of work... check it out, from the movie The Salton Sea.

A living legend

I went to Daniel Johnston's show the other night. A living legend. If you're going to watch this, watch the whole thing you'll like it by the end.

They don't build'em like they used to...

I've recently been watching all of my old Jackie Chan movies. Dragons Forever, Wheels on Meals, Project A I and II, Police Story 1–3, Armor of God...the list goes on. This is the stuff that started it all for me. I remember the excitement I used to get when I got my hands on a poorly dubbed version of any of the above. An extremely important part of the VHS era for me was hunting these down in Seattle's Chinatown or getting scammed from some overseas video company I stumbled across in a Blackbelt or Inside Kung Fu Magazine. "ONLY $39.95 for Dragons Forever on VHS!!! What?! I'll take it!!!" Only to find it was some terrible dub of a dub of a dub of a dub of dubbed dub. Now all kids have to do is google it, enter your mom's credit card number and VOILA! A crispy, fresh, clean DVD with superb picture quality right at your doorstep. Well, I earned my viewings dammit! And I'm damn proud of that. Ok, rant over. It didn't matter as long as I could play, stop, rewind the fight scenes as much as I pleased. Eventually I started making mix-tapes of my own. It is such inspiring stuff to watch, especially now that I'm a bit older and can appreciate what goes on behind the camera. These guys will always be the best. Even with Donnie Yen and a few others trying their best to keep things alive in Hong Kong...I don't think they'll ever be able to do it the way Jackie, Sammo, and Biao did it back in the day. Whether that be their intent or not, it can never be done again. They're living legends, I tell ya. Now lets go watch UNDEFEATED!!! Kidding. Please, no. Instead we watch Jackie sing!
