Hong Kong Tourist Simulacrum

It's like a Baudrillard fever dream or a Don De Lillo novel come to life: tourists in Hong Kong posing in front of a fake backdrop of the skyline because the real one is too hazy to see. (via @979KingsRoad)

Hong Kong World Tour 2008

Headed up to the Big Buddha on Lantau Island today - instead of a marathon bus ride, these days there's a cable car taking you up the mountain straight from the MTR train station. Pretty hairy for any vertigo-challenged passengers, but amazing view all the same, floating up higher than the enormous mega-cities that have all sprung up on Lantau; over the airport; over the harbour etc... Of course there's now a Starbucks up at the Chinese-style tourist village complex they've built with the cable car.

Breeze Loo Live On!

Hollywood hotshot Justin Lin (a mere three clicks from Apocalypse Now, six from Kevin Bacon) has a new film out, 'documenting' the replacement of Bruce Lee after his untimely death midway through shooting Game Of Death. Wired have the scoop. BC's idol MC Hammer makes a cameo.

c71 hkwt5.0

Leaving the world's biggest shopping centre again tonight, could always stay another day here but there you go. had pretty much the full hk experience crammed into 2 weeks, amazing food, consumer overload, heading into dawn with the prawn behind the decks, loving all the chinglish everywhere - a good time, all the time, as a wise man once said. flying at the same time as the euro final, but that's a small price to pay for squeezing out another day here.

chimp71 hong kong world tour brought to you by the power of lius, layce, los and mace, and the prawn and mrs prawn, queen of fonts.

chimp71 hong kong world tour report#1.1

Stocked up on dvds, all legit so far, and all at about 10% of the uk extorto price. don't think i'm going to get so suckered in by a virgin oxford st sale for a while. a few kurosawa, some johnny to, who's supposed to be the heir to the ringo lam/john woo school, audition, volcano high (korean film about an school full of superhero pupils), the kid stays in the picture etc...
caught the korean cannes winner oldboy tonight, which is a stunning piece of cinema. been hearing good things about sympathy for mr vengeance from the same director for ages without getting round to it - if it's anything like as good as old boy i can see what the fuss is about.
stayed up for the roonaldo spectacular too, nothing like seeing england win at 4.30am. (sucks if they lose at that time though. no. don't...even. think. it....)
surveillance update coming soon once the new chimpocam is installed.
