I must confess...I'm an unabashed fan of Twitter. It's helped me get this lightly-read blog in front of a few more eyes and provides an opening into the creativity of some wonderfully thoughtful and funny people.
That said...Twitter can be a stupid jerk sometimes. If you're on it, you know its faults. And, none of them is worse than the intentionally-spread false celebrity death rumors that pop up there from time to time.
Earlier today, "RIP Jackie Chan" was a trending topic. I was in between meetings when I saw it and some obscure, possible blog fodder immediately crossed my mind. Thankfully, though, Chan is alive and well.
I like Chan well enough. I've seen most of his American movies and obviously appreicate his otherworldly stunt work. But, my most lasting memory of Jackie Chan is from a 15-year-old music video -- from a time when Chan, Warren G. and Adina Howard(!) were pop culture commodities.
I still can't decide if this is a really good bad song or a really bad good song.
Glad you're still with us, Jackie.
You too, Warren.
Adina's still alive, right?
