Goodbye, Cine-Art House!

I've spent much memorable times in this unique cinema in HK. "Love Letter," "In the Heat of the Sun," "Smoke," "The Emperor and the Assassin".....

We'll miss you!

Photo fever

Thanks to Ron Weinstock, I found two more sets of great photos. One set with the great Joe Louis Walker at the Surf Club, the other with Linwood/Clarence band at the Surf Club, too. Plus these two awesome photos. I feel like I'm uber cool, like in a Johnnie To-esque freeze-frame. Enjoy!

What a weekend!

Best weekend I've had in awhile. Sat in with San Francisco boogie woogie king Mitch Woods at Grappa's with his Hong Kong version of Rocket 88's. Click on the song name to watch the performance (albeit medium quality).

That Will Never Do (4:59)

Boom Boom (6.04)

On Sunday, I met Director Yim Ho (嚴浩), a talented Hong Kong "New Wave" auteur I've often admired who directed <似水流年>, <滾滾紅塵>, and <天國逆子>. He's working on a new film on the Nanjing Massacre in China. It was very odd because I met him in a karaoke out of all other unlikely places.

I can't believe it!

Apparently someone put this 9 second clip of the Clarence Turner's Band's performance at Shilla Bakery on google's video page. I'm a bit puzzled because it's so short. I'm sure a longer version exists somewhere. Can somebody point me to the right clip?

Perhaps I need to go to youtube for that. Anyway, this is way too funny! I can't believe anybody would want to pirate our music. It's sooooo good it hurts! Feel free to click on the picture below to access the short clip!

Here are some photos Ron Weinstock took for Clarence and his band at their winning performance at the Surf Club. They're very nice. I wish I was there.


So long, Star Ferry!!

I am glad I got the last ride 3 weeks ago after the Methodist concert at the Cultural Centre.

Photos from Regen Ceremony

Here are some photos from yesterday's ceremony:


車淑梅,李力持,王雅文, other Regen and RTHK staff





The dynamic duo (黑白雙殺)

I was extremely fortunate to take part in such a meaningful event. Thanks to the Regeneration Society for inviting my brother Roger and me to be involved in the process. My brother wrote a theme song for Regen's annual ceremony, and we got to perform the song as the opening act.

The ceremony was to celebrate the 10 bravest regenerated individuals (十大再生勇士) in the past year. Everyone had a unique story and they had all overcome their deficiencies and succeeded in their own lives. They serve as inspiration to me since they have never given up in life. I've had very minor obstacles in my life yet I always find myself complaining. Yesterday was a humbling life experience and next time I complain, I need to remind myself how fortunate I've been.

Those who want to get a taste of the ceremony last night, click here and tune into 37:00. Enjoy!

Before the ceremony, my brother and I were in the lunch room with some of our most revered RTHK DJs such as 車淑梅, 李力持, 王雅文, etc. They were very easy-going and we chatted about everything. Especially with Director Lee, we chatted about our favorite Stephen Chow films and his desire to create Disney-like family-friendly films in Hong Kong. I also chatted with Ms. Wong about Chinese oldies and how I used to listen to her program when I was younger. All of us clicked immediately as we share similar interests in music and film.

All of the DJs were very professional as they rehearsed everything once from beginning to end and had the rundown ready about 2 hours before the show. They really give the HK entertainment industry a good name (after all, they are from RTHK).

My most sincere thanks go out to the Regen Society members who planned the event and the volunteers who helped out yesterday. It could not have been more successful. It was an unforgettable experience.
