Jim Kelly is alive and kicking on Facebook

I met Jim Kelly over the weekend and just want to quickly note that his Official Facebook Fan Page is now up. Mr. Kelly also has a domain registered for his Official Website for all of the people not on Facebook, but it hasn’t gone up yet; he only recently started building his online presence. Avoid the fakers, the posers and the identity thieves and connect with the man directly. If you have the chance to meet him at an event, signing, convention and you’re a fan of his and his work, take that chance and talk to him. You won’t regret it, unless you don’t come correct, that is.

OOOEEE!!! Meeting Jim Kelly

20120708-010632.jpg
I just got the opportunity to meet Jim Kelly, one the best martial artists in the world and star of many classic action films. He’s a real cool down to earth cat who took time to talk with me. I was so star struck, I reverted to childhood, my voice even got all high and shit. What was the coolest thing about our talk was that Jim is such a humble man, rather than go on about himself, he was very interested in what I was doing. In addition to the picture he posed for with me, I also got an autographed 8×10 from Three The Hard Way. For those who haven’t seen it, check it out. I’ve embedded a clip below; if it seems familiar, Keenan Ivory Wayans and the late Steve James paid homage to it in I’m Gonna Git You Sucka.

UPDATE: Jim Kelly’s Official Facebook Page is now online at http://www.facebook.com/JimKellyKarate! Got it from the man himself, you can’t get more verified than that.

The family jewels are upon us

The CIA released their "family jewels" yesterday, a series of documents detailing abuses of power. You can read it at the CIA’s Freedom of Information Act Electronic Reading Room, but it’s over 700 pages long, so you might want to download it from The National Security Archive to peruse at your leisure. The CIA also released the CAESAR-POLO-ESAU papers, which is a detailed (11,000 fucking pages detailed) analysis of Soviet-Chinese relations and internal politics during 1953-1973.

In related news, the US Senate has issued a subpoena for documents relating to (possibly illegal) surveillance of US terror suspects.
