Nike’s been without a head for long enough. “We should thank Dashan. One day they will build his statue, high and gold in important place in big city in China. then you will say sorry. he is right.” –BJC commenter Got a Dashan statue to submit? Send to email@example.com.
Perchance, might I ask, how does he lead? By being dead? By making everyone feel inferior at the feet of his boundless magnanimity? With puppy-like, blind devotion? By making evangelists of us all and self-subjugating to a symbol and a spirit, when in fact that symbol and spirit is a myth written by people as real,... Read more »

The above video first appeared on Youku four days ago and currently has nearly 48,000 views. The two singers -- a Chinese tour guide and an American student, according to the video's somewhat melodramatic description (They are a guide, a student. It was tourism that made them acquaintances, a song that made them familiars, reality that made them bewildered) -- present their version of "Beijing Beijing"《北京北京》. Judging by the video's comments, the duo has struck a chord.
The Shanghaiist uncovered a bit of a gem earlier today, “Young Lust No. 5: ‘Red Guard Romance,’” by Bill Griffith (Zippy the Pinhead, anyone?) and Jay Kinney. A series of similar comics, mostly from the 1970s — created as satire of DC and Marvel’s “romance comics” – appears on Kinney’s website. The Red Guard Romance series was... Read more »
Macao-based graffiti artists GANTZ5, via NeochaEDGE Well, this sucks: The demolition of a courtyard, on Qinlao Hutong in Nanluoguxiang, was wrongly conducted as it was not included in the government plan for the construction of an underground parking lot, said cultural heritage campaigners yesterday. [Global Times] I guess now’s as good a time as any to... Read more »
Conan O’Brien isn’t the only showman who knows the entertainment value in a good cross-ocean rivalry. Via Tea Leaf Nation, which has a very good recap of the show, Da Peng goes on the offensive. 56.com video (sans English subtitles) for those in China after the jump.
Via Deadspin, the adult illustrators over at Art of Jaguar have drawn Jeremy Lin getting suckled by four incredibly lusty women. Everything about it is pretty good except the caption — “linside me” is so last month. I know it’s a workday, fellas, so click continue reading with discretion.
The above video came to my attention two days ago and is now beginning to make the rounds, namely British media and Huffington Post, though it's also found on southeast Asian newscasts and has been reported on in China. The officer who saves the woman is Qiao Jinhai. I'm sure we'll be hearing more about him.
Traffic Light (红绿灯) is a show on Beijing Television (BTV) that airs an ostensibly instructional segment called “Accidents That Should Never Happen.” Everything about it is ridiculous. The only way to make it more ridiculous is to watch it in slow motion, set to music.
A commenter on a previous Dashan post wrote, “This is unacceptable; Dashan has work hard for lot years, forgoing family ties and responsibility to elderly parents and chance of creating happy family of his own. By personally sacrificing good life among his own people in developed west country, he has come China to help bridge... Read more »
From Global Times, partially: Giant pandas Gongzai and Yingying seem unusually excited. Gongzai wants Yingying to come down from the tree and he tugs and slaps his half-brother’s legs. They both fall on their fluffy bottoms and start wrestling in a ball of black-white fur. After the fun is over they walk away and begin... Read more »
One would think it’s bad to have typos in your advertisement, but I’m not sure I would have clicked on “Jouroney to the West” on Youku if it were spelled correctly. On this leap day, why get sloshed when you can read links?
He's a charmer, that Dashan. Yesterday we posted about how cute it was that he -- China expert Mark Rowswell -- finally discovered ChinaSmack, one of the most popular China blogs on the Internet, and today we find out that he likes ChinaSmack so much that he's posting multiple comments.
