Rapid Fire GIF Set 2

This is the second in a series of posts of animated GIF's from Brandon Lee's Rapid Fire. If you missed the first part of this series, please check out:

IN MEMORY OF: Brandon Lee (February 1, 1965 – March 31, 1993) [Rapid Fire GIF Set 1]

The Kitchen scene:

Here are the above GIF's combined into one:

20 years ago today, I recall sitting and eating dinner with my family. Our TV was on and the 7pm news was showing. Then the piece ran and I was in disbelief. Thinking it was some cruel April Fool's joke by Network TV. That night at 10pm and 11pm, I channel-surfed through the various news programs and all of them reported Brandon Lee's tragic and sad death. I was still in a state of denial. 

Finally the news sank in and I faced the harsh truth of Reality. Identified with Brandon Lee in a few ways. The most obvious connection was that we were born in the same year, 1965. Bruce Lee was an idol growing up. Showdown in Little Tokyo showed promise. Rapid Fire delivered the physicalness. The Crow was going to feature his acting chops. And then twenty years ago yesterday it was all over.

RIP Brandon Lee
