Happy World Goth Day to all us dark-souled, black-hearted ghouls & gremlins! FOREVER ALLOOOOONNNE!!!
Keeping WGD in mind, it was good timing and tangentially relevant that BCB’s ol’ pally Steven Ho — despite having his arms full with real Asian baby twins (alas, Conan’s fake Asian Baby got raffled off on YouTube) — walloped Conan with another action-packed plus BLOOD-DRENCHED appearance a couple days ago….and it literally GUSHED with gory goodness (sorry)!
If I had a quarter for every time someone said to me, “So, I’m gonna stick my sword inside you”….. I would have 50 cents. ANYHOO I learned a lot about how Hollywood works from watching these segments, including THIS awesome “dummy-soft-shoe-hand-punch-kick-to-the-face” trick (just watch, it will all make sense) and how they will serve you fake movie blood in a nice shot glass (FYI don’t swallow). Classy shit! Side note: WHO is that hawt stunt piece with the axe & the earring?? (good band name). Yowza. Talk about gettin that blood pumping.
As always, Steven Ho kills it…and You Will Know Him By the Trail of Dead left in his grisly wake…Good Stuff! Great Fun! Uh, I mean….the victims have been bled…strewn with time’s dead flowers…bereft in deathly bloom…
So our buddy Steven Ho has been crazy busy raising twins (Congrats!) and apparently ignoring his OG Asian Baby — but he’s BACK on Conan this Thursday and ready to bring the pain….and maybe transform Conan into a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle**.
Man vs. Man-sized Turtle….whas gonna happen?!?
This is gonna sound fucked up, but when I was a kid I totally liked TMNT. Not only “liked” in the sense of being a rabid fan of the cartoon, but like, LIKE liked. I wanted to skip through the sewer together shouting COWABUNGA and fight Krang side-by-shell (my signature weapon would be PoGo Ball) and have dishy, heart-to-heart convos about Shredder’s emotional problems or whatever an 8-year-old thinks love is. I had the hots for Leonardo specifically. He was the leader but not in an overly alpha, douchey way. As for April…I wasn’t sure if I hated her or wanted to be her (that dayglo yellow jumpsuit, pow!).
Soooooo that right there is the special place that TMNT has in my heart — and I am releasing that creepy anecdote out into the universe so it doesn’t hold power over me anymore. YOU DON’T HAVE TURTLE POWER OVER ME ANYMORE, LEO!
Don’t you dare miss Steven Ho and a very special 6’4” red pompadour-ed Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle this Thursday night!
**For which Steven is especially qualified: he played Donatello in both Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, son!!
BCB buddy the indomitable Steven Ho sent us this gem from last night’s Conan. As usual, it involves plenty o’ spin kicks to the gut, glass breaking o’er heads, and a jolly assortment of beat downs (courtesy of Steven, of course).
And since this is a Holiday Party, it also involves heartwarming festivities like candy cane jousting(!), ugly Xmas sweaters, and the requisite over-aggressive drunkenness. This video should set the bar for all office holiday parties to come.
Our fave stuntman/martial artist/hi-end furniture store owner/NEW DAD Steven Ho is back, and as usual, busting Conan O’Brien’s balls. If there is unfinished bidnid that needs finishin’, Steven Ho will be the one to uh, FINISH IT!!! Just look at the fear in Conan’s eyeballs!
Don’t miss what is sure to be a delightful evening of whoop ass.
Thanks Steven and Congrats!
BcB Favorite Steven Ho is back on Conan tonight. Be prepared for some martial arts/comedy at 11PM on TBS. I know I can’t wait, cause these bits are the only thing that can fulfill the void that Stephen Chow left in my soul.
Professional stuntman and martial artist (and one of BCB’s favorite people ever) Steven Ho will be making another appearance on Conan O’Brien this Wednesday. Steven has been putting Conan through stunt school, which has involved breaking bottles over Conan’s head and slicing open watermelon on his stomach (check out some highlights here). What will Steven think of next?!? A roundhouse kick to the nuts? Lighting Conan’s pompadour on fire? This stunt ish be cray-cray.
Be sure to tune into this epic showdown (and watch Conan confront his own mortality) Wednesday night on TBS.
For those of youse who may not have caught it last night, professional stuntman and martial artist Steven Ho (aka ASIAN frickin CONAN) was on Conan O’Brien’s show, back for the first time since Conan found a new home on TBS.
And did not disappoint! In his continuing epic saga of putting Conan through stunt school, Steven pulled out the big guns, or swords — by cutting a watermelon on Conan’s stomach in half (eat your heart out, Gallagher), hitting Conan in the face with a staff, and incorporating an Asian baby!
Steven was also nice enough to provide BCB with some behind-the-scenes shots! Behold:
Can’t wait to see Steven’s next schoolin’ for Conan, and I hope Asian Baby continues to be a recurring character. It’s giving me some good ideas on how to best utilize my future progeny. Be sure to check out Steven’s past Conan appearances and other good stuff here.
UPDATE: Steven tells me that said Asian Baby is kind of famous, and even has his own website. AB first appeared as a stunt prop on The Tonight Show, and was later raffled off on Facebook and YouTube and shipped via UPS to Coco fan Linda Schenk. Check out AB’s site for more of this stunt baby’s adventures. Go ‘head, Asian Baby!
