That's entertainment

I haven't posted much lately. Been busy with work and getting things ready for my trip to the US lately, so I have a lot of little things to post about. This upcoming weekend is a long weekend for us, since Monday is a holiday... Mid-Autumn Festival. I'm looking forward to the long weekend, but have not planned to do anything yet.

I'm really looking forward to my trip to the States since I am feeling like I've had enough of China lately. I get that feeling every 4 or 5 months now... China fatigue, I guess. It comes and goes.

A few years ago I saw a mini-series, of sorts, here on Chinese TV which I really enjoyed. I did not know the name of it, and the show is in Chinese with Chinese subtitles. Even though it didn't have any English in it, the acting and story were good enough that I could figure out most of what was going on. It was a very enjoyable series.

I was talking to a friend about it a few weeks ago, and she said she thought she knew what show I was talking about and that she might be able to find it on DVD for me. I didn't think she would be able to since I have only seen it on VCD in only a single store, but she found it! If you are in China and want to order it you can do so here. I still do not know what the name of it is.

Speaking of entertainment... we've been enjoying keeping tabs on the elections. Even though Chinese keep telling me they aren't interested in politics they seem to know alot about what is going on in the US elections. Some things kind of baffle my Chinese friends, such as how the press all said Hillary was going to be the next president and now they all say Obama is going to be the next president. Luckily the press corps doesn't get to decide who the next president is! Good article here...

HOW OBAMA BLEW IT in the New York Post

In the past the press has been able to say they were not bias, and some people believed them, but this year they are being very overt about their political leanings. The lies about, and smears of, Sarah Palin grabbed from any leftist web page and published without any fact checking is truly amazing and shows how desperate the leftist press has become. You can just imagine some person in the press going to their little Obama shrine when they first wake up and offering their prayers...

Our Obama, who art in Washington
Flip-flop be thy name.

They Presidency come, they will be done
In D.C. as it was in Chicago.

Please take away our daily bread
And raise our taxes
As we appease voters who want social services.

And lead us away from self defense
And deliver us from sovereignty.

For thine is the way of globalism
And the power of Socialism
Forever and ever,
Yes we can.

Truly amazing to me, and pretty comical to my Chinese friends. Actually, it is all rather funny to watch. When you consider how the democrat politicians seem to always care about what the rest of the world thinks about us, you would think they wouldn't acted like such asses all the time. Oh well, less than two months until the next election cycle.
