And here we go…

Welcome to Kong-Cast.  Yeah, I know a hyphen in a URL is a pain the posterior, but with nearly every .com bought up and being sold for ridiculous amounts of money, a hyphen was the way to go.  Maybe in the future I will get a hold of Kongcast.com, but I am not holding my breath.

This is a resurrection of sorts for me, since I used to host a Hong Kong Movies site called Cantonkid.com which I started back in 1999.  I ran it for a few years after moving to Hong Kong in 2000.  The long and short of it is, I lost the domain name when trying to do a transfer to a new ISP and never was able to get it back.  That experience kinda killed my desire to webhost again until now.

Anyway, the web and the way things are done have certainly changed quite a bit since then, so I am having to learn whole new skill sets.  And now there are so many sites around these days that focus on Hong Kong / Asian cinema and reviews, (and many of them doing it far better than I ever did) I hope for this site to be something a bit different.  Ultimately, the plan for this site is to include multimedia and regional tidbits as well as discussions about cinema and popular culture.  If that is something that interests you, I hope you will check in from time to time to see what’s what.
