Quote of the Day

"You can't help but feel that the Chinese are a subspecies."

-- Insufferably pissy emo O.G. Morrissey, pontificating on a news story about the ugly Chinese dog and cat trade

I really wouldn't know, since all I know about the Chinese I've learned from watching Ni Hao, Kai Lan with my daughter. As far as I can tell, they're all small furry animals with emotional issues or annoying grandfatherly men in argyle sweaters obsessed with the color red.

Much like present day Morrissey fans.

I adore The Smiths and love much of Morrissey's solo work, but GAWD, the man is a total asshole when he's not being an artist. This is like the umpteenth time he's said something racist, not to mention all the times he's flirted with British fascism; every time, the fucker ends up trying to walk it back and threatening to sue everybody who "libeled" him or "misconstrued" his remarks "out of context," ad nauseum.

He's one of those jackasses who should just shut up and sing, not because I have a problem with artists being political (they ought to be), but because he's a fucking wanker when it comes to anything other than singing snarky songs about how depressed he is. The wonder isn't that The Smiths broke up and never reunited, it's that Johnny Marr put up with Moz's bullshit for five years.

Ni Hao Chez! This is awesome, not more than 2 wks ago I was exposed to Kai Lan per a library DVD checked out by our 2.5 yr old. I likes to add to your knowledge too: I verified with a Chinese co-worker, Ni Hao does indeed mean hello, despite the fact the dialects across the Chinese provinces vary so widely some are incapable of communicating with some others. Makes me think its similar to the tribal structure in Afghanistan. Maybe China is what Afghanistan can become with a few more decades of evolution. Yikes.
