The Golden Rock - Resurrection Edition

This may be the first time many of you are reading The Golden Rock, which would mean 1) It’ll take a while before you find out my poor musical taste, 2) It’ll take a while before you find out my expert typo skills, 3) How lazy I can get when I get really lazy, and 4) I may have a lot of time on my hands.

Essentially, what this blog does for you is the role of a news aggregator. I look at tons of blogs and RSS feeds so you don’t have to. Plus, I might know more Chinese and Japanese than you, which is supposed to give me a slight advantage. Then again, so do many of you.

A typical post would probably include many sections like this:

- China’s CCTV will broadcast two and a half hours of live footage from the set of John Woo’s The Battle of Red Cliff. Knowing a thing or two about filmmaking, that means it’ll be at least two combined hours of setting up shots and only half hour of them shooting different angles of the same scene. In other words, I can just go to school for that. Plus, hasn’t it been proven that the general public don’t care about filmmaking?

So the link means you click on it to see the actual report, and you would want to do that because as you can tell, each section includes more smart-ass comments than actual news reporting. As a mass communication in college, I can tell you that’s what a blog is for. If you want unbiased news reporting, so watch the BBC. Nevertheless, I can guarantee that I don’t report and make smart-ass comments on things I don’t know about, and I don’t assume that my word is the word of all (*clears throat*). In fact, I’ll even ask you readers out there for some help, though that has never quite worked out in the past. Hell, I’ll be happy if this blog gets more than 100 readers a day.

Let’s let it start here. Next time, I’ll explain what a box office post is, and I’ll eventually find time to get to a real post. If you’re still reading by then, I owe you an e-drink. Copyright © 2002-2024 Ross Chen
