Then after a further time all the stories faded away as well and he was left without defenses or recourse, a lonely human soul drifting vaguely into the white. This was what was left of a human individual when you took away his home, his family, his friends, his city, his country, his world: a being without context, whose past had faded, whose future was bleak, an entity stripped of name, of...
Google has more bandwidth and storage than God.– Shoulsie
This is a hilarious summary of the confused minds of Chinese people (from China Herald). What do you want from us? When we were called “sick man of Asia”, we were called peril. When we billed to be the next superpower, we’re called the threat When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to open markets. when we embrace free trade, you blame us for taking away your jobs. when...

1) I got into the USA Ambassadors program at the Shanghai Expo and will be interning there from July to the end of October. 2) I didn’t apply to other things in the meantime, so I didn’t waste time doing useless applications. 3) I have Tap-Tap Revenge on my iTouch and Snood on my laptop. 4) I think I might have just murdered my Chinese essay. It’s only three pages, but...
Gone With the Wind - 70th Anniversary →
But first and foremost “Gone With the Wind” remains superb entertainment, its flaws (whatever they may be) notwithstanding. Indeed, in many ways it’s those jagged edges that provoke us to such strong feelings toward this picture, which somehow matters more in every respect because it is not smooth and perfect. Its greatness—like that of so many other masterpieces—lies as much...

U.S.-China (China-U.S.?) Showdown at Hopenhagen →
The EU and Mr. Obama have proposed that the EU and the U.S. aim to slash their total emissions on the order of 80% by 2050. Mr. He, the Vice foreign minister of China, said it is easy to make such long-term promises. “I doubt the sincerity of developed countries in their commitment,” he said.

Why Did She Do It? essay by James Schamus on the...
Why did she do it? The question is itself an admission of the impossibility of ever really answering it. And yet we ask. Another, more specific, way of asking: What act, exactly, does Wang Chia-chih perform at that fateful moment in the jeweler’s shop when she decides whether or not to go through with the murder of her lover? And here, two words - act and perform - indicate the...
TOP TEN CHINA MYTHS OF 2009
eshkosesh: 10 China Myths I READ THIS BEFORE YOU DID! BITER!
So this morning my intern at ITS told me that a certain girl that I am not a fan of will be working with us next semester at ITS. I immediately blurted out, “I am going quit.” When he asked me again if I was sure and I told him I was [but I was only half-serious!] he then told me that he would send me her schedule for next semester and then I might be able to have priority hours and...

lavieparisienne: I was wrong. It’s today. I’m not exactly sure why, but more than anything I’m really nervous to leave France/go home. Almost as nervous as I was to come here in the first place, if not more. It’s a dfferent kind of nervousness, but it’s still there. Of course, I’m excited to go home, but the nevousness is stronger than the excitement. Psych and psych-like major(s) and/or people...

lavieparisienne: Nothing to do with Paris, but it still hits pretty hard. What happened to the Republicans over the summer who were going to vote yes? For a minute there I thought I might be able to come home to equality in my state, but I guess not. Thanks New York. Can’t wait to come back! This really hurt me. I didn’t know what was going on but now that I find out more about the...
