“Why did I use kung fu to make movies – to display the art and to aestheticize fist fighting”
Lau Kar-leung (Hong Kong Film Archive 1999: 89)
There have been a couple of highlights during the past week – one nice long conversation with a new professional contact (a nice man) and a presentation I had to give to a bunch of people (no big deal, but it went well). But otherwise this has been a most distressing week for a couple of different reasons that I think best not to publish on the internet. I spent most of my day off so far having little cries and talking myself down off some psychological ledges. I decided to find something to publish in this blog (given that I don’t have enough concentration to actually write much myself). I found this quote from Lau Kar Leung among my notes. It reminded me as to what is really important: chopsockies. An afternoon on the couch watching kung fu movies is in order, I think.
Hope you all have a good weekend.
