I think I have done about 10 films that have shot within one minute or five minutes of where I live in Hong Kong. That is why I can’t leave, that is why I have to stay there. Chungking Express is actually shot in my apartment. […] The bloody film was shot in my bloody apartment! (laughs) I should’ve stayed in a hotel. I’d be working all day and sleeping on the floor at night. We couldn’t mess up the set. The film’s very special in that way given the connection to my personal life…

The interesting thing is after the film—I guess it was the Hong Kong tourist board put out a map of film locations—for three of four years there’d be people following this map to my door. Especially Japanese tourists for some reason. They’d go on the escalator and look for the apartment. So, I’d be going off to work or to a bar and there’d be people waiting downstairs. Once I found kids literally on my doorstep wanting to go in.

I know this is college but the NBA needs to stop with the dumb t-shirt and nickname jerseys or whatever and bring this look back. The old Bulls and Kings jerseys used to have this same baseball script type with the numbers on the bottom-right. And the Clippers still have this look but the “Los Angeles” is in like 10pt font and is barely legible and theirs doesn’t look as clean. These Kansas throwback jerseys look great, though.

R.I.P. the Gray’s Papaya near the W 4th St. stop in the Village. Will miss your all-Filipino staff and the drunken late-nite hot dogs. Middle fingers to the landlord who upped the rent by $20,000 and the “juice bar” that is taking its place.

Bruce Lee’s test shots for a proposed period piece he had planned. He wanted to make a true kung fu masterpiece but when he asked for an exuberant amount of money for the time, the studio (Shaw Brothers) backed out.

I can only imagine what could have come out of it. Even these still pictures exude a certain air of being very special.

I love the fact that one of the most iconic musicians of our time (if not the most iconic) was a fan of kung fu movies. From buying Bruce Lee flicks to actually visiting the Shaw Brothers studios when he went to Hong Kong. Michael was doing it long before the Rza.

Today Hong Kong producer Run Run Shaw has passed at the old age of 106. Besides being a Person That Doesn’t Rap But Has A Rapper Name, he is most known for founding the great Shaw Brothers Studios which produced an enormous catalog of kung-fu films, notably featuring martial artist Gordon Liu.

Sometime in the early ’90s however, his movies somehow found their way into the hands of some rappers from Brooklyn and Staten Island and would serve as the core foundation of the Wu-Tang Clan. To this day, the Shaw Brothers influence is still found in nearly all Wu-Tang songs, from their album and track titles, their individual personas, and especially with the RZA’s sampling of the movies they produced.

The Shaw Brothers influence would finally come full circle in 2003 (and reach its greatest audience) when Quentin Tarantino, a fan of their films, created his homage to all things martial arts, KILL BILL. In Tarantino’s kung-fu epic, he payed tribute to the Shaw Brothers movies by using the original Shaw Brothers intro, casting Gordon Liu as two different characters, and even putting a song by the RZA on the soundtrack in which he rhymes Oren Ishii with "Half Chinese-Half Japanesy. So thanks for that.
