Brandon Lee died making "The Crow".  He got shot with a real bullet that was supposed to be a blank.  I don't believe the media or anyone picked up on whether or not foul play was involved.  Everyone knew he was shot though.  I'm surprised you diodn't know that.

Yes, I knew--that's why I asked the question. It fell out of the news after that. Some say he had an obsession with death and placed the bullet. But no one ever said for sure.

This is all so true! lol

Judo is better than karate.
I only practice Judo.

The martial arts are about striving to achieve a black belt.  The martial arts are about money.  

Chinese martial arts are the best!
I practice a Chinese martial art.  

High kicks are stupid.  
I can't do high kicks.  

Tournaments are extremely important.  
I'm good at fighting and I win trophies.  

The martial arts are about building character.
You'll never be any good, but keep coming anyways.

Korean martial arts are the best.  
I practice a Korean martial art.  

Board breaking techniques are not important.  
I couldn't break out of a paper bag.

I don't believe in colored belts.
I learned in the backyard and nobody ever promoted me.

The martial arts are about building better people.  
Like me.  

Grappling arts are the best.
I practice a grappling art.  

Sophisticated arts like Tai Chi and Aikido are far superior.
Fighting frightens me.

He's a good martial arts teacher.
He's in my organization.

He's a lousy martial arts teacher.
I don't know anything about him.

My style is the best.
I don't know anything about any other styles.

Promotions are not important.
There's a grading coming up and it's important.

Throwing techniques are less important than grappling.
I can't throw anyone and I'm tired of trying.

I'm an innovative, modern Western martial arts teacher, doing my own non-classical thing.
I'm more interested in teaching than learning, and Asians ignore me because they know how ignorant I am.  

Martial arts politics are the necessary result of official recognition by respectable associations to protect the public. I'm an officer in a large organization.

I hate martial arts politics.
None of the large organizations recognize me or have the slightest interest in my existence.

In this system, we adapt the technique to fit the person.
Do it the way I said to.

Competitions are a waste of time.  I've never won any competitions.  

Forms or kata are the highest expression of the inner essence of the martial arts.  
I read that somewhere -- and I've had enough of tournaments.  

Kata or forms are useless.  
Bruce Lee said forms are useless.  

One style is not better than another -- it's the individual that counts.  
Please don't go to another school.

Practice makes perfect.
Please sign up again.

He doesn't deserve his rank.
I didn't get promoted as fast as him.

Size and strength are not important.  
I'm bigger and stronger than average.  

Science and leverage will always win out over brute force.  I'm smaller and weaker than average.  

The purpose of the martial arts is spiritual development and liberation from the ego.  
I'm so humble and wise, it's terrific.  


It sounds like Christians to me, lol!

The Amreican Movie Channel is supposed to be having a martial arts movieathon called Fists Fly in July. I don't have the details on times yet, but Enter the Dragon is supposed to be one of them. Anyone watching it? If it isn't over we should have a virtual movie party. Everyone brings their own popcorn, heehee!

Okay, found the schedule:

Hm. Only half the link turns blue. Maybe try highlighting the whole link, use the right click to copy and paste the whole thing into the field. Yup, works!

Sorry, Whitehorse, I'm just your avearage trogladyte--no American Movie Channel--just the occasional video and dope slaps and body slams around here (if you don't give me any popcorn).

But sorta weirdly, I just noticed Tibby's earlier posts; you sound like the build of a bouncer, Tibby; and I was just watching a Robert Deniro/Chales Grodin movie, "Midnight Run"; 'bout a bounty hunter(Deniro) who has hours to apprehend a mafia stooge(Grodin).  Well, in the end credits, it lists the names of the actors who played the mafia boss's three thugs.  One of them is nicknamed "Tibby".   Ahem.

Anyway, an interesting, entertaining movie.  Has the same kind of ending as Steve Martin's "Leap of Faith".  It's a lot about faith, and friendship.  

I'll put this under movies, too.

I have a cousin in Dallas who worked his way thru College doing that. lol, I havenít been in any Mafia movies that Iím aware of, but Iíll have to check that one out now! Just call me the Godtibby ;-)

Just out of curiosity, which post was it that you read?

Yes, I figured out from your other posts you'd be too young.  The Midnight Run movie was made in the 80s.  

I think I skimmed your earlier posts here on this thread, page  1 or 2 or so.  

I like the movie b/c it seems to be a pretty well written script.  To me a lot depends on how a story is woven.  This one seemed to pull it off.

When I saw your name in the credits, I said, "Hey, there's Tibby!  Hmm.  So he's a mafia thug."

hehe.
