My film debut

Yesterday we spent most of the day filming the 24th film produced by the Happy Jellyfish People's Democratic Language Bureau. You may remember our previous experience with this crazy Norwegian lady at the DVD release party for "Cantonese - the Movie: This Time It's Personal." We began filming at an abandoned mansion on top of a peak overlooking all of Hong Kong, where Kelly and I play terrorists plotting an attack. Some photos from the abandoned house:

And me in costume:

And then it was on to a cafe, where we shot a pivotal scene. I don't want to give anything away, but there's a brutal terrorist attack and the day is saved by "the policeman of the world," Aluminum Man:

Kelly acting as cameraman:

Here's what I like about Hong Kong - on a Saturday afternoon at a crowded cafe in one of the busiest parts of Hong Kong, you can be wearing an orange robe, be shot by a man in silver spandex with a mask and a fake gun, fall dying to the ground, and people just calmly step around you.

Lunch - beef balls! They have a very odd texture. Very...springy.

Then we had some important shopping to do. We headed to a huge Chinese department store in Kowloon. The items on our list: bookshelves, coffee table, rug. What we got? Ears.

This is a model of a human ear showing important acupuncture points. We bought three. We don't know why.
