Edd Cartier’s art for L. Sprague DeCamp’s The Hand of Zei. Looks like art from a ’50s Disney movie that was never made.
Much more at The Golden Age.
If you can look beyond the grainy footage, the silly sound effects and the monotone voice over, this is one of the best demonstrations of Hung Gar’s tiger and crane forms I’ve ever seen.
It’s amazing seeing the exact moves I’ve seen in so many kung fu films broken down into actual fight relevant applications.
To make things worse, the guy demonstrating the moves is real life Hung Gar master Chiu Chi Ling aka the tailor from “Kung Fu Hustle.”
Love everything about this, including the voiceover.

As long as he stands for love!
Just started 2000’s Kamen Rider Kuuga and I’m already so happy about that.
Wait wait wait, a novelization of a remake of a movie that, great though it is, was a ripoff of Dracula?

The manager of comedian and actor Lou Ōshiba posted on Ōshiba’s blog that Lou will appear “in the new Kamen Rider Series starting in October.” Read More…
I have no familiarity with this comedian, but there’s no way I’m not excited about whoever this dude will be playing in Kamen Rider Drive. I mean, look at him!
St. Tropez, 1960.
Sprinkle me mayne.
It’s a very rare intersection where Lupe doesn’t come of as particularly pedantic and Ty doesn’t sound like a creep.
This comes from Noz’s wonderful roundup of summer songs. This reminds me of that magical little time before Food & Liquor dropped, when we all thought Lupe would be a lot more versatile than he ended up.
Marlene Dietrich, 1942
Raymond Chandler (July 23, 1888—March 26, 1959) makes his cameo in Double Indemnity, sitting outside Keyes’s office, reading a pulp novel.
One of my favorite movies. I had no idea.
"A Fair Acrobat Soundly Thrashes A Man" (1898). He threatened her father; she "boxed [him] well about the head." -via Bob Nicholson
