I don’t know about you, but this blogger has a pretty unhealthy obsession with a few things. A list:
1. Kung Fu movies. Some people dig Spaghetti Westerns, some dig zombies, but for whatever reason I will never get enough cheesy kung fu. Samurai flicks, too, the Japanese version of kung fu. It’s a problem, but where’s my hotline?
2. Gangsta rap with surprisingly pretty beats. Notorious examples include Aesop Rock, DJ Shadow, and, of course…
3. All of the above, otherwise known as RZA. I once went to a screening of the 36th Chamber of Shaolin sponsored by him and was greatly impressed by his taste, intelligence, charisma, and humility.
Speaking of which, his Chamber Music Part 2 Legendary Weapons is coming out soon, and he happened to release a track on Soundcloud today! Coincidence? Not at all, actually. Here’s the track.
