      This is Pierre Kirby:

      Pierre+Kirby3.JPG
      (Pierre Kirby in "Untouchable Glory" aka "Ninja Untouchables".)

      Who is he? Just one of the most obscure, and interesting, action stars of the 1980s. Forget Arnold, never mind Stallone and don't worry about Van Damme because Pierre Kirby (if that's even his real name) is probably the biggest badass out of them all for not only his films, but the kind of life that he lead outside of them.

      In the late 1980s, Pierre Kirby rose to prominence as the star of many Godfrey Ho movies; who is Godfrey Ho? A big time director in Hong Kong action films at the time, Godfrey Ho has used so many pseudonyms in his work that it's sometimes hard to tell what movies are his and what isn't, but he always used the same technique for his movies. Known as "cut-and-paste cinema", Godfrey Ho would take existing footage from an unreleased movie and splice in his own to put together one movie.

      ("Terror Serpent" aka "Thunder of Gigantic Serpent" is one such movie wherein "Movie A" deals with a little girl and her pet snake who grows into a giant monster because of a experimental substance that got loose from a laboratory. Meanwhile, in "Movie B", Pierre Kirby plays a man who's trying to take down a mob that's trying to get their hands on the same experimental substance for means of world domination.)

      Sometimes this wouldn't be so obvious but, for the most part, it was because in order to link together "Movie A" and "Movie B" they would just edit together two characters seemingly talking to one another, either over the phone or apparently in the same room; but, obviously, they weren't. Also, the previous footage would mostly consist of an all Asian cast while the new footage would be mostly Caucasian; this is where Pierre Kirby comes into the picture (pun intended).

      (Pierre Kirby in "Zombie vs. Ninja".)

      Pierre Kirby, supposedly a citizen from England (although his voice was overdubbed in his films), came to Hong Kong as a sailor of privately owned Yachts. That is to say that he would sail Yachts for rich people around from port to port so that they wouldn't have to, as well, he sailed yachts for business and entrepreneurs alike. The story goes that, somehow, he sailed one such yacht into Hong Kong on a business deal, ran into Godfrey Ho and struck up a conversation that led Pierre Kirby into a starring role in about a dozen of Godfrey Ho's films in the late 1980s.

      So, whatever happened to Pierre Kirby? That's where things get interesting; very, very interesting. According to a fellow co-star, Pierre Kirby left one day to sail a yacht to the Philippines and, the story goes, his yacht was boarded by pirates wherein he was immediately thrown overboard and seemingly never to be heard from again; or, so it would seem. About six months later after his disappearance, a crew member that had worked on a film with Pierre Kirby saw him in the middle of a crowded lobby at the Hyatt Hotel in Hong Kong. He yelled after him, even tried to push his way through the crowd to get to him, only to find that he had gotten lost in the shuffle of so many people and Pierre Kirby was never seen again.

      To this day, no one really knows what ever happened to Pierre Kirby... and that, my friends, is a true bad ass.

      Been busy lately, sort of, or at least I will be:

      smiley9.gif Started an outline for the RTMN entry over on Roosterpedia that I have taken upon myself to tackle. It'll be a brief overview of the groups history and will also serve as an archive of information regarding it, as well. I'm not saying that I will do an excellent job on it, and will most likely make mistakes, so once I'm done with it feel free to look it over and fix things; that's the glory of a Wiki!

      smiley9.gif The Five Awesome RvBers are back on track, more or less, although it'll be a week or so until we're finally back to normal, I think. It sucks that we lost years worth of videos, over a few hundred, but we're not going to let that stop us, so it'll be nice to get back into the swing of things and making videos again.

      smiley9.gif I've been working on new episodes of my Let's Play series, "8(bit)Minutes", which I plan to release as a seasons worth (about 12 episodes) so, right now, I'm slowly creating a buffer. Which I think is my problem with most projects. I get so excited about them that I tend to release them like crazy and that often leads me to losing control, thus with this way of thinking I can at least try to keep it under control in small bursts.

      smiley9.gif I've also been, foolishly, thinking about bringing back Beards and Jackets; at least, in a smaller and less expensive format. I've just had the need to write lately as well as create; but create what? Videos, actually; how so? Video reviews. I've started writing a script up for a pilot episode of a video review show I'd like to do, but we'll see how that goes.

      smiley9.gif Plus a few more that I've got on the back burner at the moment which I'm not ready to reveal just yet (because they might not even happen).

      So yeah, trying to keep myself busy with some creative projects. That RTMN Anniversary video I did really opened my eyes to the fact that it was both fun and that something I can do can get a great response from people, which is always encouraging. How about you guys? Working on any creative projects lately?

      Oh, dude, always join! If ever we're going to invite someone into our special one on one time, it'll be our Travie. smiley8.gif Bow chicka bow wow.
      I have L4D on XBOX, and haven't played it on XBL much. Much prefer playing a group of four people I know instead of some group of randoms who decide they'd rather shoot me with a shotgun than the zombies. So definitely get on that.
      I also just recently downloaded Castle Crashers and Uno, so if you have them, DEF party up with me. Lastly, we play retarded crazy awesome one on one Halo 3 all the time, so a third person to help me practice my headshots would be greatly appreciated.

      In short, XBL at all times okplzthx.

      Someone in my comments asked when you'll be visiting me and for how long, due to that plane picture in my images.

      It's an excellent question. When can I expect you, sir? I hear Jackson is an excellent vacation spot. smiley8.gifNot really. It's actually pretty terrible and boring. But there are lots of nearby towns with stuf to do! Come seeeee meeeeee!

      Actually, I am probably more grateful. I look forward to passing along the "catchyness" of the song to others through out the day.

      It was pretty excellent pizza, if I do say so myself. I made it all by hand, entirely from scratch. The dough, the sauce, and the toppings. I'm amazing!
      Give me a few more trial runs, and I'm sure it will be worthy of deck pizza.
