Memory’s unreliable … Memory’s not perfect. It’s not even that good. Ask the police; eyewitness testimony is unreliable … Memory can change the shape of a room or the color of a car. It’s an interpretation, not a record. Memories can be changed or distorted, and they’re irrelevant if you have the facts.

— Leonard in Memento (2000)

Live Action “Sleeping Dogs” Fight Film

best part of “in the mood for love”


In the Mood for Love.  No dialogue needed.  If you’ve seen the film, you know what I’m talking about.  If you haven’t seen the film yet, you need to watch it.

Saw that documentary a while back.  Sick soundtrack and one of the best bball documentaries out there.  That being said, if you aren’t a bball/NBA fan, I’m sure you would have found it to be one of your run-of-the-mill documentaries.  Yes, there’s probably a lot more depth the documentary could have gone into, but it was pretty cool to see some of the back story of players who are now starring in the NBA.  Check out part 1 of the documentary here: http://youtu.be/11lvAG7WKP4

Rest in peace, MCA.

p.s. I made a pilgrimage to Rucker Park a couple years ago.  It was the middle of winter time, too cold for basketball, so no one was playing.  But just being there, you could feel the magic.  Sure, it looks like a fancier version of the majority of outdoor courts around the world, but when you think about the history behind it and all the greats that have played there, you can’t help but feel like you’re some place special.  If you’re in NYC and a ball fan, I highly recommend making the trip to Harlem to check it out.  Make sure to remember to bring a basketball.

Besides the Adam Yauch of hip-hop and music fame, there was also Adam Yauch: filmmaker and hoops fan.

Before he was diagnosed with cancer in 2009, Adam Yauch directed the documentary  Gunnin’ For That #1 Spot and distributed it on his film production company Oscilloscope Labs in 2008.

Gunnin’ was one of the more insightful and entertaining looks on the sport, featuring a great cast who, for the most part, have since found success in the NBA. It was also the first to give us near unfettered access to the world of Michael Beasley. Mike: please never stop watching Spongebob and filming home-made horror movies.

Recommended viewing for a basketball fan even if you haven’t been following the sport the last few years. Plus its finale takes place in the sport’s largest stage, second to The Garden: the legendary Rucker Park court in Harlem, New York City. 

Rest in Peace MCA!

Ted.

This.  looks.  awesome.

I should get back into Wilfred.
