Via BadCanto, i.e. Dictionary of Politically Incorrect Hong Kong Chinese; Youku video for those in China after the jump The team in white is Kitchee, and they’re good. They beat the team in purple, ESF, 16-0 earlier in the year, according to the Youtube video above. But apparently ESF lied about the score, saying they... Read more »
Via NetEase Jon Pastuszek of the excellent NiuBball was, I’m sure, waiting as anxiously as I for tonight’s fifth and final game between Shanxi and Beijing. Unfortunately, we’ll all have to wait a little longer. Per Pastuszek’s translation of an official CBA release: In order to ensure league safety, Game 5 of the 2011-2012 CBA semi-finals between Beijing... Read more »
The above is taken from a BTV preview of tomorrow's deciding Game 5 in Beijing. Sunday's incident in Shanxi is only alluded to because everyone is already pretending it wasn't a big deal. Asked about what Beijing's fans will be like, Stephon Marbury proceeds to bumble through 12 seconds of an answer before finally giving in to the temptation to diss Shanxi's fans, albeit gently. One sort of wishes he would've just come out and said they were pieces of shit, because they sure seemed like it.
Via CCTV special about Marbury I’m sure we all remember the post-game fracas in Taiyuan, Shanxi after Sunday’s game, so we’ll jump straight to Stephon Marbury in his own words in his weekly China Daily column: I couldn’t believe this. Yes, I had experienced opposing fans throwing stuff at us before while on their home... Read more »
Wall Street Journal’s recent blog post about Mao Xinyu, the grandson of Mao Zedong, coupled with the above Caixin picture of Mao from a CPPCC session has given us ample opportunity to revisit an article in Global Times a year and a half ago upon Mao’s promotion to the rank of major general. Wrote a sly copyeditor... Read more »
“Highlights” from the 2012 Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference are after the jump. I just want you to know I nearly lost an eyeball to my own prying fingers while compiling this. Unless otherwise noted, links (plus above picture) are via Global Times.
H/T Alicia Seeing as how much we hate censorship, we should probably commemorate Reporters Without Borders’ World Day Against Cyber-Censorship. Every March 12 (I realize it’s March 13 in China, but America is 12 to 15 hours behind [excluding Hawaii, obviously], so give me a break) is dedicated to the “support of a single Internet without...

At the 53-second mark in the above video, the Shanxi fan who accuses Stephon Marbury of punching him in the head and then kicking him after Sunday night's game tells the journalist:
Because there were too many (Shanxi) fans, too crowded, when Marbury came out, the fans were careless so they squeezed around him. He (Marbury) had a water bottle in his hand and hit me square in the head, knocked me to the ground and kicked me in the face.
Tudou video for those in China after the jump. UPDATE: Video of accuser and Marbury’s response: “He got a wild imagination.” First, let me say as plainly and firmly as possible that the end of last night’s Beijing-Shanxi game was a joke. I’ll repeat here what I tweeted last night in apoplexy: the referees were intimidated by Shanxi’s fans and gave... Read more »
Because, you know, he can really easily give you a ticket, dock some driver's points, as it were. I'd like to have seen this driver talk his way out of this one. "Sorry, officer -- you were standing in the middle of the road." I mean, he was.
Pornhub (No. 83 on Alexa) and Livejasmin (No. 72).

GreatFire.org is a great resource for checking which websites are blocked within China. For example, via that tool, you know that the Great Firewall blocks eight of the world’s 50 most popular websites (as ranked by Alexa): Facebook (2), YouTube (3), Blogspot (8), Twitter (9), WordPress.com (18), t.co (29), IMDB (41), Blogger (44) and fc2.com (47)....

So the one on the left, standing, says, "Slap those mainland bitches who come to Hong Kong to give birth! And I don't mean with fines..." The one on the right, sitting, goes, "We can't be like them -- now we're arresting birthing agents. What is this, China?" And the first one's like, "I'm talking about mothers," to which the other responds, "You calling me fat?," prompting, "You're way too ugly to be a mother," and finally, "Well you're a locust!" And then the one on the left throws some liquid at the one at the right...
The video after the jump depicts a Stephon Marbury unlike any you’ve seen. At 35 — currently winding down his third and best season in the Chinese Basketball Association (he just scored 52 and 53 points in consecutive games in the CBA semifinals, against his former team, the Shanxi Zhongyu Brave Dragons, no less) — he’s...
