Friday Pretty Post

Remember the Young and Dangerous franchise?! I’m not talking about…

…’18 year olds’ zipping across ends of greater LA in a red M not getting a ticket, nor staying the night at the hugeass house 5 minutes from Highway 1 by sportscar, an hour by foot or 10 seconds jumping off the stairs, the glass, rolling into the Pacific (escape plans, we need some) of a single rich boy you think is a Mr White who is into STARING and permanent fuchsia lipstains  (or is color tattoo’d on?!?!?   is he the MalibuKenHeisenberg of fuchsia meth? ) whom you’ve met for 5 minutes in total over several fateful bumping and have an itch to peek his morning shower hair makeup routine to get to know his deep thoughts…

…but the HK 90s franchise that made stars out of the collective bunch of now 40+ uncles:

I am not a fan of any one of them, but collectively?!  Damn was it a nostalgic fun ride.

And yes, I have a few words on a certain K drama.

Here yuma, I come in peace and I have a most sincere offer on the table:

I’m happy to resort to me swapping my slightly over 100 pounds, almost identical ht with your embodiment of female ideal of late body with yours,  as the only reason I can think of you fking everything and everyone is in fact… bless your heart, you are suffering from your grueling weight loss and you are deprived of food items and you envy puffy cheeks and chubby stature, and you are craving a XiaoLongBao, constantly, 24/7.   I would be happy to make your life easier so everyone attached to your Return of Condor Heroes and Foxy demoness and a XiaoLongBao could make an easier living and we as bystanders who can’t help but watch the ultimate doomed marriage of any combination (I do not want to spoil and ruin anything of your most ‘colorful’ imagination) between a hero, a condor, a fox and a yummy dimsum (tiny piece of heart).  I didn’t say it out loud it’s doomed because you are attached but we know our Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio a romance crossing taboo barriers of lifeforms of humans and demons and on top of that with a little lump of juicy meat-filled doughy goodness would never end well *very straight face of mine.*  The public needs to resume a life without all the unnecessary emotions and inexplicable swearing and smashing of things.  I have no idea where it stems from, do you?!  But all I can sense is you are not happy and your unhappy wrath on the world is not making me happy for one.  All I’m asking is on one condition, as long as I can control that mind or whatever u have inside your head.  I will make do with your body and your face.   I Swear.  Ain’t I a sunshine.

With due respect, and whatever I can do, here, have my arm, mookie.

Return of Condor Heroes: The Blight of yuma

Just when WSJ coined a new term ‘dama’ in our OED lexicon for the formidable

“bargain-hunting middle-aged Chinese aunties” who “keep a tight grip on the family purse and an eagle eye on gold prices.”  “financially illiterates” whose “pluck and knack for scooping up gold is not out of strategic calculation and risk assessment, but a matter of following the herd, whose uncouth and uncivilized behavior irks”

…the first thing that comes to my mind is a billion of damas will be easily KO’d by one peculiar irking beast:

The best (and worst for my sanity) time warping wuxia memes MV EVER!

O MYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY @____@

If you are a fiend of TVB wuxia of the 80s, I dare you to not squeeeeeeeeee and be frozen with your 'mind is BLOWN!' face after seeing any of this (if you haven't, ie me) for the next wk or foreseeable future.

Even if you don't, the time warping awesome memes r  to die for!!!

1)  We have the handsomest prettiest man ever in Cdramaland Leslie, ohhhh soo young and the young Joey Wang fresh off their explosive CPdom of Chinese Ghost Story. *sooo young and too much gorgeousness around and gosh my heart is bleeding TT___TT*  To witness Leslie at his most dazzling: himself in modern clothes, crooning and SMILING, and Joey also in her most out of this world gorgeous: as XiaoSin and STILL rocking the chemistry fake-playing guzheng?  I am lost for words.

2)  A young, boyishly dashing Andy Lau will forever be my perfect Yang Guo, he's also my vote of doing a best acting job amongst the trifecta of best known YG (Louis Koo, Huang XiaoMing and Andy).  My forever favorite Leslie played YG in an 80s B movie, but he's too flawlessly femininely pretty for the role.    I don't care too much about XLN, and imo Carmen Lee is a very limited actress but she encapsulated XLN's aura the best. *I find Idy a bit too melodramatic like a Lin DaiYu in looks when a XLN should be too removed fr world and out of touch of being a human being to feel or care or angst.  Same token, LYF is too cute and warm like a babydoll.*  To my surprise Andy and Carmen looked so matching together and channeling their YG and XLN singing a duet.  Now i wished they did that 90s RoCH with Andy+Carmen instead.  *I've just never felt any connection with Louis K on screen at all*

3. Barbara Yung and Felix Wong.  Singing the most perfect drama title song EVER, there will never be a poet turn lyricist as talented as Jim Wong in Cdramaland (RIP *sob*) and there won't be a better song+lyric team than Jim and Joseph Koo.  The counterpoint duet consisted of two perfectly constructed succinct poems to two harmonizing separate melodies merging in unison at the chorus like the hero and heroine in the epic, the flawlessly contructed song brought home a lot of the breathtaking visuals and emotions described in the masterpiece throughout its verse, the chorus…even the coda.  I was awed as a kid and more so now the fact memorable thematically matching theme song for a wuxia is an extinction. And! Felix! Bow! Dancing!  'Nough said.  *sobbbbbbb and cryyyyyyyy some more*

Because there's not enough of Leslie+Joey goodness,
Leslie and Joey doing the talk show promo in TW:

Gaaaaahhhh now I desperately need to rewatch LoCH83 and RoCH85 (I like this drama adapt more than the novel proper, unheard of, and of course major Blasphemy! for any JinYung) and Chinese Ghost Story. and then MUST rewatch Leslie classics.  Can't do unless there's a rabbit hole with 48-hrs day in it.
