For laughs

Funny stuff: 大侠就是我
蝶梦(穆杨) 焦版杨宗保

Also, want the mp3 version of this song: 只如初见. So far all I can find is the shorter female sang version.

The definition of "侠"

Inspired by a tangent to this post.

So after all that musing about the definition of the western superhero, I got thinking on what my interpretation of "侠" is.

ZOMG I laugh...

Didn't think I'd find this kinda stuff on youtube. Beats trying to get enough points on Chinese BBS to look at the MVs.

Because I'm a fangirl... wuxia map

Apparently, Changzhou/常州 (where Zhaozhao/昭昭 hails from) and Guanjiangkou/灌江口 (where Erlang Shen/二郎神 hails from) are both located in Jiangsu/江苏 province (where I hail from :p). *fangirls* ^_^

Also, not sure if I covered all the famous mountains of wuxia fame... I think I got the most often used ones... Kunlun, Hua, Emei, Tai... Am I missing some?

Edit: added Hengshan, Wudangshan, Jinggangshan, Xiangyang, and Kaifeng.

Edit2: Apparently I have the wrong 灌口... it's actually supposed to be next to Chengdu in Sichuan.

Spit-take...

From an EG pseudo-fic on the bbs:

我家小白白啊~~名字叫做白玉堂,字泽琰。外号锦毛鼠。
不过,这个名字起的就不是太好。 因为从五行上来看:
玉字属金,堂字属土。泽字属水,琰字属火。
五行中单单缺了木。

(snip)

那么改成什么好呢?白是你的姓,不能改,含有五行的字也动不得~~那么就只有改外号了,“毛鼠”两个字也有“猫鼠”的谐音在所以也不能改。那么,我看就叫你“棉毛鼠”好了

(snip)

——切忌高楼啊。
平时的住房就要小心,遇见含有“高”的楼房建筑,比如说冲霄,凌云的,千万、绝对不要乱闯啊!


...Note that 白玉堂 died infiltrating 冲霄楼. I have to wonder if his name was chosen for exactly the above purpose. But probably not since his earliest literary incarnation as a mouse-spirit probably didn't include 冲霄楼.

Movies Gallore

So [info]cashew and I had a girls day/night/day out yesterday and today, our last day(s) of freedom before classes start... tomorrow. *sobs*

Anyhow, we rented three videos from Blockbusters yesterday evening - "Big Fish" and "Once Upon A Time In China" I & II. This afternoon we saw "Hero" in the theaters. So yeah, reviews are as follows:

Big Fish review )

Once Upon A Time In China review )
