Spotlight/Shoutout: Chow Yun-Fat

So, another purely selfish S/S, but aren't they all?

It goes to Chow Yun-Fat,

but this one has to begin with the QATFYG.

Has anyone in this sphere seen "The Corrupter?"

I remember back in 1999/2000, I saw this in the video store every week, and I always wanted to see it.
But I was too young at the time (tragic age discrimination ) but I always planned on watching "The Corrupter" when I was older.

However, over the years I have grown a distaste for Mark Wahlberg.
I just don't like him in most things. On some levels he and I get along, but things like "The Italian Job" or "The Happening."


I had forgotten about this movie, but I was watching "Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior" tonight, and I was reminded of all the Chinese things I like, including Chow Yun-Fat.

(Other Chinese things that are awesome: Food, 12 Girls Band, English teacher salaries, Western Muslims and their hats, Ceramics, Mongolian Lineage, Yao, and the WOK!)

PS: Crouching Tiger is the Fried to my Rice.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
