OK - back to Asian film

Not that I have actually watched anything lately or even kept up with what is going on other than checking in on Grady's Kaiju Shakedown Blog. So I fall back on my old standby, photos. I realized I have about 1000 pictures that I long ago scanned and never got around to posting. So basically that is all I am going to do till I clean out the cupboards and hopefully by then I will be in the mood to start watching Asian films again! These are all pictures of older Hong Kong film actors that many of you may have long forgotten. Some of them were never very famous in the first place. But I liked them anyway.

OBAMA! OBAMA! OBAMA!

Now that the election is finally over I should have time to get back to watching Asian films again and occasionally update this very dormant blog. I have been really focused on this election for months - in reality I have been obsessed by it - and have spent much of every day watching CNN and have lived and died with every up and down movement in Obama's poll numbers. But he did it. We did it. I never thought I would see a black man elected President in my lifetime (and I hope I still have a ways to go) and am truly amazed and so proud that I did. The Boston Red Sox winning the World Series and now Obama - this has been a great century so far!

It feels like a very dark cloud has been lifted from our country and from the world. The past eight years have been a national disgrace and a national shame and I feared that our collective souls had been so withered that we might not rise to this occasion but we did and I feel great. I am not ashamed to say that I wept when the words "Obama is the President Elect" crossed the screen. It was a communal cathartic moment shared by millions around the globe. Maybe the world isn't a different place today but it sure feels that way. Go Obama!
