Twitter Weekly Updates for 2011-01-29 (I can do Beijing's Siberian winter winds, but this?) # @shanghaiist perhaps wine production in China will surpass Australia in three years, but when will it be *good* wine? in reply to shanghaiist # @ecoangelhsu ooh-ooh, is it one of those documents where there is a whole paragraph that is only one giant run-on [...]

Acting as the cartoon voice for young Judge Dee for CCTV

Recently, I stupidly decided to try to squeeze in some voice acting work on a CCTV cartoon project… … normally I love cartoon voices. Unless you’re Jim Carey, its not likely that most actors are ever going to get the opportunity to pretend to be cartoons. So well, it can be a joy to record. [...]

The Second Brunch of 2011 (only a week late!)

As you may have noticed, one of my New Years Resolutions is to try to organize weekly brunches. Unfortunately, last weekend I was out of town for another Huatuo event (this time in Southern China — ie: the land of no winter heating, ugh). And unfortunately I had to miss out on the brunch. But… [...]

Huatuo Annual Meeting in Huai An

2011年1月15日华佗论箭·郑和舰队年会速递 The Annual Meeting for Huatuo CEO Forum and Zhenghe Fleet (down in Huai An in Jiangsu Province, one of those provinces that doesn’t do heating in the winter… ugh). Still it was a fun event, and I managed to finish that China Mieville book, so not all bad

World’s Coolest Nationalities (According to AC360)

I try to download the AC360 podcast (when I’ve got my VPN up, as its oddly blocked in China… what did you do, Anderson Cooper, to hurt the feelings of the Chinese people, hmm?) and was incredibly amused today to see their list of the world’s coolest nationalities. Sure, I obviously get why Mongolians are [...]

in Yichun… 借箭华佗 郑和兴洋 开创中国民营经济新模式

I had an interesting trip down to Yichun in Jiangxi Province last week to attend a groundbreaking ceremony for a new highway construction project. The red earth of the area was one of the reasons for the success of Jingdezhen pottery (much like the beautiful clay in North Carolina!). The best part of the event [...]

First Brunch of the New Year 2011年的第一个早午餐

One of my New Years Resolutions for 2011 is to have a weekly brunch with friends on Saturday (when I’m in town). For the first brunch, we picked the lovely French bistro, La Taverne, as they have a really nice set brunch (three courses for 88rmb!). Eggs and tomates parmesan, salad, bacon, fresh french bread, [...]

Monkeys as Bunnies 猴子演兔子的卡通片呵呵

Cheeky Monkey has started to expand into translating scripts as a way to support ourselves in between plays (or, as has been the case, when a play doesn’t make it through the censors and is effectively banned, ugh). For one particular gig, this then evolved from mere translation to directing and supplying the voices for [...]
