I found an old promotional postcard from my father’s video store for Flashdance. On the back, it says “On videodisc” for $29.95. 


Bruce Lee Eve

Posted: 27 March 2017 in Uncategorized

I attended a Bruce Lee Eve film festival back in 1987. Here are some flyers from it. It was the first time I saw two of his movies at the proper aspect ratio of 2.35:1. Until then, I had only seen the pan-and-scan versions on Beta and VHS. The 35mm prints were really bad though. Lots of splices and scratches. 

Of note is George Dillman. My initial impression of him wasn’t good. He struck me as a man who’d had his picture taken with Bruce Lee and then claimed to be a close friend (see flyer below).  He was cocky and standoffish. Flash forward 30 years and a quick Google or YouTube search reveals just the type of “martial artist” he is.

High School Art

I found this drawing I did in high school. It was from a step-by-step how-to draw. I actually have zero artistic ability. I wish I had put more effort into drawing. There are a lot of ideas I’d like to put to paper.
