Cold Bishop, do you ever plan to resume your great articles?

Sure do... But a computer crash destroyed all my writing and accompanying notes. Not so rough for this than the larger Chang Cheh filmography write-up, but demoralizing nonetheless.

Luckily, the Shaw project was still largely at the notes stage; I lost capsule reviews for a few early kung-fu films, but since my approach was becoming more auterist as the decade progressed, I already decided just to watch all the films on my list and just backtrack/rewatch/write after.

The Chang project on the other hand: around 50 or so capsules/mini-essays gone. I'm not necessarily looking forward to rewatching all those films. Still, I'm treating it as a challenge to be more concise during my second go around.

I also lost plenty of exhaustive viewing guides I made for the genre and decade projects. And some unfinished pieces I was also hoping to finish (particularly my I Love Melvin traumatic-psychodrama-disguised-as-chipper-musical piece, which I wrote and rewrote numerous times. And which I'm still determined to get right.)
