flip the disc

Random assortment of HK themed LPs on ebay that I'd love to own, but should probably not bid on...

pin-up stars

Going through my posters and found a small roll with these old "star" posters. Poor John Sham was never the HK Tiger Beat heart throb...

I think we all know this guy

Jan 29th! Kung Fu Fridays is back on the BIG screen!

Back by popular demand! I've decided to resurrect my old film series and bring it back to a space that has been karmically good to me - The Royal Cinema aka The Golden Princess. This space used to be a Chinese cinema back in the 80s and is where I fell in love with Hong Kong cinema. I'd be the only white guy in the audience many a time. Then when it closed, I was able to rescue movie posters and prints. It later reopened as The Royal and I brought my monthly film series there in 2000. Thirteen years later I find myself in charge of the cinema's programming along with my wife Katarina. Funny how life goes!

Found out that Sony has a DCP of Snake In The Eagle's Shadow, which was the first title I ever screened for what would later become known as "Kung Fu Fridays," so I decided to revisit a classic, 20 years later. 

For more details, The Royal's site and the Facebook Event

And I learned how to make and embed .gifs!
