B-BALL: Lin Art

Web   -   FB   -   Youtube

   With the first few games of the 2014 NBA Playoffs already played, The Rockets look like they will fall in the first round to the Blazers.

   I thought I'd share some of the Jeremy Lin art I've been collecting from around the net before the Rockets season is over.

   I've read some harshly critical comments re: Lin's performance in the Playoffs, which is all part of the 'Linsanity' backlash, which is subconsciously racist. Secret KKK trolls loaf in their computer chairs waiting for Lin to foul up.

   In truth the entire Rockets team has been incredibly inconsistent against the Blazers, 2 mistakes for every good play. But Harden & Howard must shoulder the bulk of the blame as they got the big money 2 shine on this very stage, so far there have only been a few glimmers of superstar play.

   This is my first post about Lin, but I became a fan back when I saw him in Summer League for the Golden State Warriors. My hopes were super high for the first Asian-American to shine in the NBA. He couldn't do it with the Warriors, but we all know what happened in New York.

FILM: Teacher's Diary w/ Ploy Chermarn (พลอย)

"The Teacher's Diary (คิดถึงวิทยา)"
A film by Nithiwat Tharatorn (นิธิวัฒน์ ธราธร)
 The film stars Ploy (พลอย) - Chermarn Boonyasak (เฌอมาลย์ บุญยศักดิ์) as Ann, a teacher at a small rural school located on a lake.
   As U can C, Teacher's Diary looks like a remix of The Lake House, which was already a remake of the Korean film Siworae.

   Siworae starred Jun Ji-Hyun (전지현) & Lee Jung-Jae (이정재) who also worked together in Thieves

"An exhilarating portrait of international icon Bruce Lee's journey from troubled Hong Kong youth to martial arts legend, KUNG FU blends dance, Chinese opera, martial arts and drama into a bold new theatrical form. This world premiere production follows Lee in America as he struggles to prove himself as a fighter, a husband, a father, and a man."

"Delicate, and yet simultaneously forceful and unsettling, the works seem to hover in a dream state of surfeit and exaggeration."
