ABOUT THIS PROJECT
Hello everyone! Allow me to elaborate on the details of the portion of the Journey to the West I will be focusing on.
Book 1: The Monkey King
A mischievous, powerful monkey bursts out of a giant rock and begins to roam the nearby mountains. He soon stumbles upon a tribe of monkeys, who immediately crown him king. Life as king proves to be dull and monotonous for the Monkey King, and he leaves his beloved monkey clan to seek extreme strength, power and eternal life.
He goes on to master the art of shape shifting, find his secret weapon--an iron rod that shrinks and grows at his command, and eat an entire tree of magical peaches that grant eternal life.
However, throughout the Monkey King's quest for power, he causes trouble. A lotof trouble. First the Monkey King trashes the Dragon Palace in the depths of the ocean, and when that wasn't enough the Monkey King flies to the Jade Palace in the heavens to cause further havoc.
Book 1 ends with the Monkey King finally being put in his place. Buddha punishes him by trapping him underneath an enchanted mountain.
And...Book 2 will begin with the Monk freeing the Monkey King from his prison and embarking on their journey to retrieve the Buddhist scriptures!
Thank you so much for looking at my Kickstarter page. I truly hope that you find my story compelling, and are also interested in sharing this fantastic story!

RIP Andy Griffith: Watch "Aunt Bee's Restaurant" Where she opens the first Chinese Restaurant in Mayberry!
Name: "Aunt Bee's Restaurant"
Synopsis: Aunt Bee takes a job at a Chinese restaurant, but her superstitions get in the way of her work.
Originally Aired: February 6, 1967
Starring Keye Luke as Charlie
Keye Luke was born in Canton, China. He grew up in Seattle, Washington, and entered the film business as a commercial artist and a designer of movie posters. He was hired as a technical advisor on several Asian-themed films, and made his film debut in The Painted Veil (1934). It seemed that he appeared in almost every film that called for Chinese characters, usually in small parts but occasionally, as in The Good Earth (1937), in a meatier, more substantial role. In addition, he played Dr. Kildare's rival at the hospital in the Dr. Kildare series at MGM, but it was as Charlie Chan's #1 son in that series that Luke achieved his greatest recognition. In the 1970s a new generation was made aware of his talents by virtue of his recurring role in the TV series "Kung Fu" (1972).
and Lloyd Kino as Jack Born: May 8, 1919 in USA

Phelps drops 200 free, won't go for 8 golds News from The Associated Press:
Eight was enough for Michael Phelps in Beijing.
The world's greatest swimmer dropped one of his eight Olympic events on Monday, leaving him with seven at the London Games. That means the 14-time gold medalist won't equal the record eight golds he won four years ago.
And Phelps is just fine with that.

The recent terrifying spate of 'cannibal attacks' seems to have spread to China, as a drunk bus driver was caught on camera gnawing at a woman's face in a horrific random attack.
The unfortunate woman will apparently require plastic surgery to repair the damage done by her crazed attacker.
Drunk Chinese man tries to eat woman’s face during ‘cannibal’ assault nydn.us/OcGWtb— New York Daily News (@nydailynews) July 2, 2012
According to local news reports, the driver, named Dong, had been drinking heavily during lunch with his friends before the outburst on Tuesday.
He then ran on to the road in the city of Wenzhou, in south-east China, and stood in front of the car being driven by a woman named Du, stopping her from moving.
Dong climbed on the car's hood and started beating the vehicle while the panicked woman screamed for help.
When she left the car and tried to escape, the bus driver leaped on top of her and wrestled her to the ground.
Witnesses said that the bus driver had gone 'crazy' and was successfully resisting attempts to subdue him.
When police arrived, they managed to take Dong into custody, bringing the appalling rampage to an end.
A CHINESE man has done nothing to allay fears of a zombie apocalypse, as he became the latest villain in the bizarre global face-eating— Martyyyyyy (@MartyHawksiano) July 3, 2012
Du was taken to hospital, where doctors said she would need surgery to repair her nose and lips.
The incident comes in the wake of a number of similar attacks committed by drugged-up psychopaths in the U.S.
Perhaps the best-known of these came in May, when Rudy Eugene chewed a homeless man's face off before being shot dead by police.

A Video about June 4th that every Mainland Chinese should see: How did Hong Konger react to the news
Thousands of people came to Hong Kong's Victoria Park to mark the 23rd anniversary of the crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in Tiananmen Square. HRIC talked with a diverse group of individuals at the vigil.
Heckler Interrupts Hu in Hong Kong
Chinese President Hu Jintao was interrupted by a protestor during a ceremony in Hong Kong.

On Saturday, police had to use pepper spray to fight back protesters trying to present Mr Hu with a 100,000-name petition calling for an investigation into the suspicious death of a Tiananmen Square dissident.
One journalist was earlier dragged away for shouting a question about the Tiananmen Square protests.
Chinese President Hu Jintao arrives in Hong Kong to mark 15 years of its handover from Britain and inaugurate its new leader, at a time of record-breaking levels of discontent toward Beijinghttp://youtu.be/3RMtswqz0fI
Protests and heckles as China swears in Hong Kong’s new leader - The Globe and Mail:
New Hong Kong leader Leung Chun-ying caused controversy within minutes of being sworn in by Chinese president Hu Jintao on Sunday, choosing to deliver his inaugural speech in Mandarin, not the local dialect Cantonese that is spoken by the majority in the city.
For decades, China’s Communist Party has promoted Mandarin as the country’s official language and a way to unite the country’s wide-ranging local dialects. However, in the fiercely independent former British colony of Hong Kong, Cantonese still reigns supreme, and has long been a staple of cultural exports to the mainland, including Hong Kong TV dramas and, of course, Cantopop.
For thousands of Hong Kongers, this weekend's 15th anniversary of China's takeover of the semiautonomous territory isn't a moment to celebrate but a chance to air grievances from corruption scandals to human rights to a widening gap between rich and poor.
Chinese President Hu Jintao arrived here on Friday to install Hong Kong's new but already unpopular leader, whose swearing-in on Sunday's anniversary is expected to draw large-scale protests. Hu, surrounded by tight security, is unlikely to see them.
China has kept its promise to retain the freewheeling capitalist ways of the former British colony, but residents have grown increasingly uneasy about being ruled by the country's authoritarian leaders. Only 1,200 elites among Hong Kong's 7 million residents had the right to vote for their chief executive.
