Although kung fu is a creative outlet, I often miss the career path I dabbled in years ago in acting and stunt work for film. I miss the work, and it shows through some of my past projects like Pui Chan: Kung Fu Pioneer and Journey to the West (right).
I was told by my partner in crime, O, that it was a good idea to start a blog. O said that the life I lead is anything but typical, and that sharing the nuances of my day to day might be interesting to people.
It is my belief that if you say you are going to do something out loud to another person, it is more likely you will get it done. So I am hoping that you will help hold me accountable to some of the projects I hope to accomplish this year. I have received gracious feedback on Kung Fu POD, and I am hoping to film some new episodes.
As a matter of fact we have a new one out this month, so please subscribe and check it out. I am also hoping to launch an audio podcast, which will be a bit of a departure from my usual Wah Lum and kung fu related subjects. I’d like to delve into different subcultures that I am passionate about and chat with experts in those areas. (comic books, film, music, food, other cultures and traditions, etc.) Of course there will be some martial arts episodes, but I am hoping to explore new cultures and subcultures too. The name of the podcast is Culture Chat. Please listen and don’t be too critical, since this is all fairly new for me. I know so many interesting and knowledgable people, and I felt they should share their stories and wisdom with others. The first few episodes have already been recorded, so I am hoping to post some of them soon. When I get back from Brazil I will be working on getting it on iTunes.
During my travels in Brazil, I plan to continue to write this blog, and also work on the Culture Chat podcast. So if you give it a chance, I think you’ll enjoy the chats. I am also hoping you will hold me accountable to getting it done! I am always interested in meeting new people from different cultures, so reach out and say hello and let me know if you would like to have a chat on my podcast! Also, let me know what other subcultures you are interested in hearing about in the comment box below or on Twitter or Instagram.
