March 31, 2011: I just received a new shipment of Dragon of the Black Pool shirts in all sizes, as well as a bunch of new Pork Chop Express tees. Grab 'em while you can! Also, it is my sad duty to announce that once my current stock of shirts are gone, I will not be able to provide more, since my licensed supplier did not renew their contract with Fox. I have enough inventory that should supply fans through the end of the year, but if you've been holding out getting one of these shirts and tanks, I strongly suggest getting one now while you still can!

December 10, 2006: BTLC fan Chris Roberts writes in about an unexpected appearance of Wang's BTLC Restaurant, the Dragon of the Black Pool: I was watching my dvd set for the early 90's TV show "Eerie Indiana". I was shocked when I got to an episode called "No Brain, No Pain". The episode opens with the line: "Simon and I had decided to make a rare appearance with the family. Stuffing ourselves at the Dragon of the Black Pool Chinese Restaurant..." And wouldn't you know, the neon sign in the window of the restaurant is the exact same one from Big Trouble in Little China. If you can get your hands on Eerie Indiana: The Complete Series, its the last episode on disc 4, called "No Brain, No Pain". Sure enough, that's the sign! I wonder if Fox studios did Eerie Indiana and found that sign in some dusty backlot corner and decided to use it. Click here to see some screen captures.

your wardrobe today!
October 18, 2005: I've
sent the new design to the printers, and expect
to receive my first batch next week! That said, I'm now taking pre-orders for the New Burton
Tank and New
Burton Tee shirts! Order today and be one
of the first to get it in time for Halloween! The older tanks and tees are now on sale - get em' before they're gone!
October 15, 2005: I've
begun work on Episode III of Big Trouble
in Little South Park. Click
here for an exclusive sneak peak at one
of the opening scenes!
6th, 2005: After two+ years of selling
the same Jack Burton tank and tee shirt design,
I've decided to try redesigning the image to
more closely resemble the actual Chinaman logo
seen in the film. The new shirts will have a subdued hue tone,
finer detail, and more accurate coloring. They
will be available in all sizes (even XXL!) Look
for the new shirts in Oct / Nov.This means I will begin phasing out the older
Burton design shirts, so if you like that logo,
you should pick one up today! Click
here for the Tee Shirt section.
September 20th, 2005: There's still quite a while before Halloween, but I'm starting to get requests for how to make a Jack Burton costume, so I thought I'd post this helpful info:

March 5, 2005: Huge Buzz!
BTLC fan and World of Warcraft player Curt recently sent me a screenshot of this interesting item he acquired while playing the popular online RPG...
February 14, 2005: Dragon of the Black Pool Jacket - After running a poll a while back, it seems that many Big Trouble fans would like to see a Dragon of the Black Pool jacket available for sale. They will be yellow wool letterman-style jackets with brown suede or leather arms. The Dragon of the Black Pool logo will be professionally embroidered on the back. At this time, I'd like to take signups for the Wang Chi-inspired jackets, which will likely cost between $125-250 dollars, depending on the material quality. I won't be making very many
(perhaps 10 total), so be sure to sign up for one of these one of a kind jackets now! If you are at all interested in one of these, please contact me and let me know what jacket size you'd want.

September 4, 2004: Egg's Residence Revealed!
BTLC fan Deranged Liquid Sheep recently did some research on BTLC locations and found the location where the interior filming was done for Egg Shen's residence. It was shot at a firehouse, Engine House 23, in Los Angeles.
Sure enough, a picture to frame comparison confirms this. Notice the large firehouse door in the back and the roll-up gate on the left that revealed the pole used to slide underneath Chinatown?
If you know of any other locations from the film and can take a picture of it, contact me. I'd be interested in doing a piece on this in the future.
