Hong Kong film junk and other nonsense from a N.Y. gwailo

A very, very blog birthday!
One year ago today, this icky yellowish stain of a blog was born out of boredom. From an inauspicious first blog post about Loletta Lee to a balls and shaft birthday cake (see below), courtesy of my friends in the film COME ON GIRLS, 365 days later. I would like to thank ALL of my readers who take the time to stop by every now and again to check up on my baby and make sure it's fed. I hope this spot acts as a respite from your internet travels. A quick stop at an oasis of silliness. I really intend for this blog to be a spot used for nonsense. At times, maybe, posting things of consequence, but for the most part, a fun low brow foray into the seamier side of HK cinema. This place wouldn't be the same without you guys and gals. I've made a bunch of new friends this year through this blog and I hope to continue to cultivate those friendships this coming year while continuing in a tongue-in-cheek Category IIIish direction. Thanks again! CATEGORY III OR BUST!
Hong Kong Cinema is like sex and pizza. Even when it's bad, it's still pretty good.
I have had a love affair with Hong Kong Cinema for over 17 years now. I have accumulated over 3,000 HK films and many other HK film related items throughout those 17 years. With this blog, I am hoping to share my collection with other HK cinema fans. With my writing, I am trying to keep things light,fun,and tongue in cheek in hopes that my love affair with HK cinema continues and remains as fresh as the days I first fell in love with it. Thank you for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
