Guo Degang, a non famous crosstalk actor, recently published another book: Guo Lun.
Guo Degang's first book, formerly known as "People in the Jianghu", was changed to "Living Just" after being persuaded by the editor.
Guo Degang is a person in the Jianghu. He has Jianghu spirit. He is not shy about this.
He said that the so-called Jianghu spirit is the concentration of Chinese traditional culture. Loyalty, filial piety, courtesy, wisdom and trustworthiness are included.
The achievements of Guo Degang are the rivers and seas in the Jianghu; What shaped Guo Degang was loyalty, filial piety, benevolence and righteousness.
His experience of success, frustrated past, reading experience and life experience are all in these two books.
Today, Zhe Kongkong, from the book list team, takes these two books as the blueprint to reveal the secret of how Guo Degang, a Jianghu talent, was refined.
1、 That crosstalk is for dinner
What is the most important thing in one's life? having dinner
Chopsticks are tools for eating.
The head of the chopsticks is round, symbolizing the sky, and the tail of the chopsticks is square, symbolizing the earth. The so-called sky is round and the place is round. In the Eight Diagrams, the head of the chopsticks is the divination of the Heavenly Kingdom. When it is dry, it is heaven. When you use chopsticks to pick up food and send it to your mouth, it is people's desire for food.
In the simple values of the Chinese people, eating is the top priority, because it is about survival, and happiness is: let yourself eat better.
Guo Degang came to Beijing for dinner.
Just arrived in the capital, Lao Guo lived in the Green Pagoda, which was located on the wrong side. There is only one bed, one chair and one saddle in the room. At that time, when Guo Degang was engaged in creation, he was sitting by the bed with a horse tied up and writing hard.
Guo Degang has been to many places, such as Haidian, Tongzhou and Daxing, because he is short of money.
For some time, Guo Degang lived in Beiyangwa, Tongxian County, and could not pay the rent. The landlord blocked the door, slammed the door, kicked and scolded. Lao Guo hid in the room, but the atmosphere did not dare to make a sound.
To save money, Guo Degang makes his own recipes. Go to the market to buy bundles of green onions, and then buy some packets of noodles. Go back to your residence, boil the noodles in a pot of boiling water until they are rotten. Then put some sauce in it, and it's ready.
Every day when we arrive at the meal point, we will heat the pot and eat it with scallions. Despite the mediocrity of the food, Guo Degang was very happy. He said that he ate nutritious food, including both vitamins - scallions and carbohydrates - noodles.
There is a small Pingju Troupe near Puhuangyu, which can seat forty or fifty people. Guo Degang went to perform and said that he would pay 1000 yuan a month. Unexpectedly, after two months of singing, he didn't give a penny.
Guo Degang lived in Daxing at that time. He rode a broken bicycle to and from work every day. He had a broken tire and was reluctant to spend money to repair it. He had to breathe three times for a round trip. Later, bicycles were scrapped and buses were used instead.
Once, after the night show, there was no bus, so Guo Degang had to walk home.
Walking to the Xihongmen Bridge, big trucks shuttled by one after another. Guo Degang moved forward step by step along the curb less than a foot wide, holding the railing and taking advantage of the light of the headlights.
At midnight, Guo Degang stood on the bridge with no one around. He looked up at several stars and a waning moon. When I think of the past hardships and uncertain future, my nose is sore and my tears rustle down.
While crying, Guo Degang recited Mencius to cheer himself up. When heaven is about to take on a great task for his people, he must first work hard, strain his muscles and bones, and starve his skin.
For many years, Guo Degang has never cried, this is the only time.
He said to himself, Guo Degang, you remember that everything today is your eternal capital, and you must succeed.
By chance, Guo Degang passed a teahouse in Nancheng and saw a group of children talking crosstalk in it. He thought, "This is where I came from, so I can't move any more.".
Since then, Guo Degang has become a regular guest of the teahouse, and he has talked about it from time to time. A piece of paper was pasted on the wall of the teahouse to listen to crosstalk and storytelling. It costs two yuan each. Guo Degang brought crosstalk back to the theater, which had something to do with his early experience.
When he first opened the theater, Guo Degang made a rule that even if there was only one audience, he had to follow it.
One day, there was only one audience in the theater with two or three hundred people. The old man Xing Wenzhao, Liu Baorui's disciple, stood there and said a stand up crosstalk, one on the stage and one off the stage.
After talking for a while, the audience's mobile phone rang, and the old man stopped to watch him not talking. The audience also felt embarrassed. After answering the question, they said a few words, hung up in a hurry and continued to listen to crosstalk.
When Guo Degang came on the stage, he pointed to the audience and said, "You have to listen to crosstalk well. You have to say hello when you go to the toilet. You can't run if you start today. I have more backstage people than you.".
The audience laughed. Guo Degang also smiled and burst into tears.
Another time, there was a performance in Guangde Building. In the cold winter, heavy snow was falling. In the afternoon, when the market was over, only a dozen tickets were sold. Guo Degang counted some money for the tickets, and then took out two hundred more from his pocket to buy boxed lunch for everyone.
After eating the boxed lunch, everyone stood at the door in the face of the wind and snow, holding bamboo poles and chirping, listening to crosstalk. Once someone comes in, go straight to the backstage, put on your coat and speak immediately.
Guo Degang is willing to do this, so he doesn't feel bitter, but he needs a partner who is willing to work with him.
When eating, five fingers hold two chopsticks. They must support each other to eat. The same is true of human life. A single thread does not form a thread, and a single tree does not form a forest. Without assistance, people can't accomplish anything.
From 1995 when Guo Degang said crosstalk in a teahouse to today's popularity of Deyun Society, some people came for two days and left. Some people quit halfway because they didn't make money, while others insisted.
Guo Degang said that at the beginning, I didn't know how popular it would be today, nor did I think about how it would be if I stuck to it. It was just that when I walked all the way to the black, I just pushed the car.
Today, Guo Degang has long passed the era of noodles with green onions. He can eat whatever he wants.
During the Shanghai commercial performance, the tickets of the Ten Thousand People Pavilion were sold out on the same day, and the organizer arranged a crab feast, with steamed buns and crab meat, which were very delicious.
Finally, Guo Degang served a dumpling. He thought it was black sesame or bean paste, but when he bit it open, he found it was filled with crabs.
Guo Degang has a problem with eating. No matter what delicacies he eats, there must be two small plates of pickles on the table. His hobby is the same as that of his storyteller, Jin Wensheng.
In addition to eating pickled vegetables, Guo Degang also likes pickled vegetables. As long as he has free time, he will go to the vegetable market to buy all kinds of radishes and pickled vegetable heads. When he comes back, he will pickle them. When he is greedy, he will take whatever he wants.
In Caigen Tan, it is said that if you chew vegetables, you can do everything.
Guo Degang, who came out of poverty, must understand this truth.
2、 Traditional disciples
Guo Degang has a strong side in his bones.
He said, "Wealth and honor will last forever, and heaven can't help me;"; I have no choice but to be upright and upright.
In Guo Lun, he wrote about Du Shiniang and Zhang's sisters in the Republic of China, all of whom are famous martyrs.
Rigidity comes from the immersion of traditional culture.
Guo Degang said that although some people in the outside world pass me on like a bandit, I am actually a scholar and a scholar.
As long as he was free, Guo Degang would go to his study. He loved classical literature, twenty-four histories, four masterpieces, and folk notes.
He reads not for decoration, but to enrich his mind and understand what life is like.
Guo Degang said that my son Guo Qilin dropped out of school in the third day of junior high to talk about crosstalk. But you should know that my study is bigger than the theater. I can show you the books you can tell me at once.
No diploma, no education, no school, no school.
For some time, Guo Degang assigned his son homework to read the Twenty Four Histories and the Draft History of the Qing Dynasty. He said to his son, I can't give you a diploma after you finish reading these, but you will learn these principles all your life.
In traditional culture, there is a very important concept: Tao.
The ancients believed that all things in the world follow the Tao, without exception. It has no birth or death, no beginning or end, no exterior, no interior, and no change from ancient times.
There is a fable in Zhuangzi. Dongguozi asked Zhuangzi for advice. Where does Tao exist? Chuang Tzu said, everywhere.
Dongguozi asked him to be more specific. Chuang Tzu said four things: ants, grass, bricks, and dung. One is worse than the other.
Chuang Tzu said this not to emphasize taste, but to show that Tao exists everywhere, even in the lowest things.
In the traditional culture, the pursuit of Tao is related to the dignity of life and the significance of existence. The so-called "dying in the morning" means "dying in the evening".
Crosstalk is Guo Degang's Tao.
Until now, Guo Degang can't drink, smoke, play cards, dance, or socialize. He said crosstalk on the stage and pondered crosstalk off the stage.
Guo Degang said that some people use crosstalk as a craft to support their families, just like shaving and pedicure. Some people use crosstalk as a toy and play for a while, but do not play. But for me, this is my life.
In Guo Degang's opinion, traditional crosstalk is not only for the sake of Daoliang, but also for the purpose of promoting morality.
In the market era, in the AI century, Guo Degang and his crosstalk, with the help of the latest media and cutting-edge technology, made films, went on variety shows, and acted as a host. They were very busy and did not dare to neglect for a moment.
Because he understands that the death of Wen is loyalty, the death of Wu is fierce, and the death of a woman is chastity. Now, the death of Xiangsheng is not for sale.
honour the teacher and respect his teaching. In front of "Chongdao" is "respecting teachers".
On June 23, 2007, Guo Degang went to Anhui to record variety shows. Suddenly, he received a phone call and learned that his mentor Hou Yaowen had died. After hanging up the phone, Guo Degang burst into tears and immediately called Deyun Society to arrange the funeral.
In the morning of June 24, Guo Degang and Yu Qian took the first flight back to Beijing. When the car was driving on the highway, Yu Qian wept and sobbed, saying that the old man was too cruel
Hou Yaowen was just 59 years old. On his birthday on July 17, Guo Degang had already booked a hotel to celebrate Master's 60th birthday. However, God intended to make people leave early.
Guo Degang and Yu Qian wept all the way to the Rose Garden. After getting off the bus, the martial brothers gathered around them. They rushed into the mourning hall without greeting.
After seeing Hou Yaowen off at Babaoshan, Guo Degang could not hide his grief on the way back. Disciple Kong Yunlong comforted him again and again.
Guo Degang sighed, "Master and apprentice are like father and son. How can they not feel pain? One day I died. If you can cry like this once, I will be worth it.".
Before Guo Degang finished speaking, Kong Yunlong was in tears.
3、 Jianghu people can afford it
Guo Degang in "Just Passed" hates his peers and satirizes the public, like an angry King Kong; Guo Degang in Guo Lun talks about history and culture, and is more humble and good at looking.
For example, Guo Degang has explained the word "theory" in the book title more than once. He said that Guo Lun's words are really unworthy. Even if I want to learn something, I dare not claim to compete with you. At best, it is a report.
In fact, this is not contradictory. Gengjie and humility are two aspects of traditional culture.
In the words of Guo Degang, Jianghu children can take it up and put it down. If you can't put it down, you must. Few people live to be 100 years old. Laugh when they are happy, and laugh when they are unhappy.
Life is to make people laugh, and occasionally laugh at others.
Once, a friend came to visit and said that a website scolded Guo Degang for buying fans and carrying sedan chairs for himself.
Guo Degang smiled, noncommittal, and only advised his friends to drink tea, and told about his recent discovery: when cucumber is fried with shrimp, salt is used to marinate the melon slices, and then stir fry them, which makes them more delicious.
Guo Degang advised his friends and disciples with this philosophical attitude.
Once, a disciple posted a microblog and was scolded in the comments. He was so angry that he tried hard to scold back.
Guo Degang gave him two ideas: first, to blackmail him. Since we can't talk together, why should we be tired? Second, it is right to praise each other.
Disciple was puzzled, and Guo Degang gave him an analogy. Two people bet ten yuan to see if Zhuge Liang and Kongming are the same person.
Then, if one side insists on two people, the other side may as well admit defeat. In this way, he can only spend ten yuan to make the other side confused for a lifetime.
A few years ago, Guo Degang still seemed indignant when he mentioned some rumors about him in the society. Now, he has compiled these anecdotes into jokes and written them into books.
For a while, under the influence of Guo Degang and Yu Qian, Dewun Society was all the rage for playing walnuts. What I played was Wen Play Walnuts, not ordinary walnuts. There are many kinds of cultural game walnuts, including lion head, big chicken heart, childe hat, etc.
Walnuts are valuable because they are scarce. For example, there may be only one tree on a mountain, and it can pick out two identical walnuts.
After hearing that Guo Degang and Yu Qian played with walnuts, many vendors selling cultural walnuts said something from time to time:
oh dear! We sold a pair of walnuts yesterday for 300000 yuan, which was bought by Guo Degang. Yu Qian also bought a pair of four hundred thousand.
Someone asked Guo Degang to prove it. Guo Degang laughed and said, "It's all a rumor. We've never spent this money unjustly. No matter how much I love, I can't love it to this extent.".
But when this word is spread, people are willing to believe it, and say it with nose and eyes.
Some people even said that they saw Yu Qian come to buy walnuts with a box full of money. The number of each piece of money was still connected. According to him, Yu Qian dares to rob the bank?
Guo Degang's seemingly understated ridicule comes from his complex experience in the past and the classic books he has read.
How many roads a man must walk and how many books he must read, so that, as Sushi said, he will not be surprised when he dies, and will not be angry when he adds it without reason.
Zhang Wenshun once said to Guo Degang that he could not survive without an enemy. A person is not wronged, wronged or misunderstood. This life is not perfect.
Guo Degang, 45, probably had a deeper understanding of this sentence.
Recently, Guo Degang hosted a variety show called Crosstalk with New People.
Along the way, I felt a little disappointed. I felt that there was no new person in crosstalk, and the name seemed to be an irony.
Once, the host Bai Yansheng had a meal with Ma Ji, and someone asked Ma Ji if the Chinese crosstalk was declining? Ma Ji didn't speak for a long time, and the man continued to ask. Ma Ji looked up and said, Isn't there Guo Degang?
Indeed, crosstalk also includes Guo Degang. But throughout his life, it is not easy to become Guo Degang?
Guo Degang is rooted in traditional culture.
Guo Degang really benefited from the positive things in traditional culture, which at least gave him three benefits:
The wisdom of survival born of hardship and died of happiness;
The way lies in the firm belief of thousands of people that we are going;
And the optimistic attitude of a lifetime.
As Guo Degang himself said, crosstalk circles are very famous and profitable, but it's really difficult to become a corner!
Three points of ability, six points of luck, and one point of noble support.
It's just the so-called time, luck and fate!
