IPOD TO: Dining Rooms - Cinemaroma 2
WEB TO: Reef Keeping Made Easy

Well, it's official. They announced the Living Dead Dolls Art show!

I was asked to create a Doll for the show and I accepted!

They sent me a blank doll, and I can go to town on it doing whatever I want! I can't wait for you to see what I am doing.. Officially, I'm not supposed to show the doll before the show on Oct 31, Halloween! I'll keep "making-of" photos and share them with you after then.

Kim and I are planning to go to the opening in New York City! So I'm going to get my hat, buckle and boots ready!! Although, Kim is worried I'll look like an idiot! Ha, as if. ;-)

The official announcement is here: Living Dead Dolls Art Show!

IPOD TO: The Horrors "Sheena is a Parasite"
WEB TO: Dream of Doll "Superdolfie"

So went out and caught Scanner Darkly today. Linkletter's roto-film. I guess since I haven't read the book I'm missing a lot of key information. The film was hard to follow, and generally without a point. The roto-work really didn't anything at all for me other than establish a style. A style I felt could have been abandoned because it didn't raise the film up. Sorry Linkletter, I'm still a huge fan of "Dazed and Confused", and "Waking Life", but "A Scanner Darkly" really didn't leave me with any sort of satisfaction from viewing it. A huge amount of effort and money went into this film.. and for me, the end effect fell flat. The only saving grace for me was the cast. Keanu, Winona, Woody Harrilson, and Robert Downey Jr, are always a good ensemble, and entertaining to watch. So at least you can get your money's worth watching the brat pack.

However, the opening trailers had a great suprise! "The Science of Sleep" by Micheal Gondry looks promising! So keep your fingers crossed.

WEB TO: My Next Watch

Ok, so what you are looking at here to the left is an official phenomenon! I'm serious. Here they are! Straight from New Zealand, smuggled in with love to us here in Dallas Texas with care via Kiwi native, Abby Cutriss! Thanks lass!

So now the boys in Dallas have "short shorts" for "men". Yeah.. it's the genuine article alright. Real for goodness Stubbies. Look out for photos soon!

And if you are asking yourself, what is a Stubbie and how will it affect me!? Consider this:

IPOD TO: Public Enemy
WEB TO: Retro Art from Plan 59

Well, as you may notice, Kungfukoi.com got an overhaul! I have pumped 1.21 jigawats of Web 2.0 goodness into this puppy! The future is here baby, and we're surfing in on the cusp!

I am celebrating a fresh look for the site, with something we can call... "Retro-Geek". Thinking back to the days of DOS, and Intellavision, when you had to use your imagination to play a video game.

So now, in a time where the Web has decided to reinvent itself and upping the version. I thought it appropriate to do the same with our little nest here. Only, with our reboot, we're going back to the roots! Before the days of Flash, and animated loading pages... There was simple. So KungFuKoi would like to celebrate those days with our latest facelift.

In all seriousness, the site is 100% dynamic XTML/CSS Web 2.0'd up! What that means to you, is that I now have the site entirely under my control... easily. So expect me to be tweaking on the design over the next week(s). I have the broad strokes in place, but as you might see, there still are alot of pages that need to be stripped of the old HTML code, and updated with the fancy CSS standard. So as I run across them, I'll conform them., add new content..etc. I have tons to upload.. now I should be able to do it easier. Enjoy!
