INSPIRATIONAL PEOPLE: BRUCE LEE
Don’t know Bruce Lee, the greatest icon of martial arts cinema and a figure of popular culture? Well, you’ll definitely remember his name after you watch this video.
The tune in the background, Motivation - Kelly Rowland, fits perfectly with the video as it sets the right mood and the right message.
"I’ma be your motivation." If you’re working hard at something that seems too difficult or impossible, especially if it’s physical skills, Bruce Lee may just be the inspiration you need.
WONG FU PRODUCTIONS’ “SHE HAS A BOYFRIEND” SHORT
HER: “Yeah, I can come by the bowling alley where you work.”
HIM: “Cool. Totally hook it up.”
HER: “Awesome! My boyfriend loves bowling!”
[ HIM: “haha, I’m sorry what’d you say?”
HER: “My boyfriend loves bowling.” ]
Basically — THE FORMULA:
Guy approaches girl.
Girl is nice, mentions boyfriend.
Guy is like “aw dang it!” or “ef !!”
That’s exactly what I usually see in the bars/clubs unfortunately!
Great short film as can be expected from Wong Fu, especially because the topic is, as usual, very relatable to the youth.
KI HONG LEE IN “NEW GIRL”
For the Wong Fu Productions, Ki Hong Lee, and New Girl fans - this might excite you like it did me. I love seeing people advance in their careers.
Recognize who’s next to Zooey DeschaneI? It’s actor Ki Hong Lee. I first saw him in Wong Fu Productions’ short film Away We Happened. He was great! I loved his expressive facial expressions! While catching up to New Girl, I recognized one of the actors who wasn’t mainstream or part of the main cast. Yup, you guessed it! I had no idea that he was beyond web series/films but had actually started on TV first. Before New Girl, he also had a small part on Modern Family and had a larger role on The Nine Lives of Chloe King as Paul, Chloe’s friend.
I dare you to start paying close attention to the actors who play small parts in the shows you love (if you haven’t already) because you never know - you might see them as part of the main cast in another show you enjoy just as I mentioned in a previous post about Michael Trevino being in Charmed but is now in The Vampire Diaries as Tyler Lockwood.
MICHAEL TREVINO IN “CHARMED”
Before Michael Trevino was Tyler Lockwood in The Vampire Diaries, he was Alastair for the ”Malice in Wonderland” episode of Charmed in 2005.
It’s amazing how we’d watch our favorite shows and never pay close attention to the many other actors who become involved for an episode or 2, but then later down the road you find yourself paying closer attention to them. Charmed was one of my top, favorite shows and I watched every episode. I never would have guessed that he was a part of it even though he’s a great actor. He plays Tyler Lockwood well in The Vampire Diaries. It’d be nice to see him in a movie soon.
The graphic designer who made this did a great job! Michael Trevino looks cutthroat here as Tyler Lockwood from The Vampire Diaries.
Here’s a way for breathless fans to pass some time as they wait for the movie. In what author EL James calls a “natural extension” of her trilogy, now you can uncork a bottle of… 50 Shades Of Grey Red Satin or White Silk as you re-read those dog-eared tomes about Anatasia and Christian
Smart. Great way to expand the book’s brand. What do you think?
Isn’t this amazing! Do you see what I see? An advanced, modern, millennium version of a thaumatrope! It’s also reminiscent of a film as it toys with the persistence of vision.
