Dan and Dave collaborated with Bruce Lee Enterprises to create a new deck of playing cards to celebrate his birthday. Bruce Lee would have been 73 today – 27th November.
The Chinese dragon design on the backs of the cards celebrates his birth. The faces of the cards were inspired by the iconic tracksuit he wore in Game of Death, and feature a black stripe running through them, “like water”.
On each of the cards is a different philosophical quote from Bruce Lee’s teachings. The Aces however, which are traditionally the most elaborate cards, were left blank to symbolise a free mind.

This custom Dunny by Sket One pays homage to the humble condiment soy sauce. There’s nothing humble about the price however ($475 but sold out now), but that’s just testament to the quality of the piece.

Bruce Lee and alcohol don’t seem to mix, but this short film was apparently just sponsored by Johnnie Walker for it to be made. The CGI Bruce Lee took 9 months, which included consultation from his daughter Shannon Lee. It’s good to see his digital portrayal become more realistic over the years.

Our feline companions continue their dominance of the web, though we’re not sure how many lives they’ll have left when rolled in sushi. Here they are in bizarre ads by Japanese company Tange and Nakimushi Peanuts…

We’ve just seen this interesting article on Gateway Hong Kong that details the cost of living in Hong Kong this year – great for anyone interested in moving there.
Like the article implies, the costs can vary according to your preferences on where you live, food etc but we know from experience that you can get by very cheaply if you stick to local goods and services. Of course, if you have relatives that you can stay with or your family has a home there (which may be common for many overseas Chinese), then you can already discount the rent.

Professional model painter Joe Dunaway shows how it’s done with an extensive online portfolio of models he has painted. Plenty of popular culture film characters (Predator, Gremlins, Hellboy, Aliens etc), but this one of the Monkey King caught our eye. Check his showcase on the link below, but don’t miss the drop down menu at the top for a more comprehensive list of his work.

Created by Gongdreen (Yu JuHyun), these tape dispensers shaped liked clouds are as charming as tape dispensers can get. Our choice would be the white one with striped colour tape, though sadly, the rainbow isn’t included. Get one at the Gongdreen site for $14-$18.
