“After” Movie

Here is the official website to my cousin’s movie called “After.” Even if I didn’t know the director I would still want to see this movie.

Last week I went to Chengdu and since I had taken pictures of the pandas earlier in the day I decided that I wanted to take a nap and then would be ready for another set of shooting and I should since I wanted to make the most of my money, I’m kinda cheap. So around 1930 I went to the Sichuan Opera and had to buy a seat even though I never once sat down once the hour long show began, I asked if I had to buy a ticket if I wasn’t going to use the seat. I got a lot of great shots but I only posted some of the 550 I have from the night: Sichuan Opera 川剧

Last week I went to the Panda Breeding Center during one of the only sunny days that central Sichuan has had in the last few weeks. Here are some of the pictures that I took: Panda Breeding Center 成都大熊猫繁育研究基地

OK all I can think when I hear things like this is this fantastic quote:

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”     -Joseph Goebbels

You to start to wonder if the idiots making these kinds of public statements also believe the crap that is spewing from their mouths or if they actually know what is going on and believe the people to be so stupid in this day and age where you really can’t control the flow of information no matter how great your firewall is.

This is quite funny and well done. AND most importantly I fully endorse watching this to learn Chinese. (I don’t know how much that matters since my Chinese isn’t great but I do endorse it anyway)

I went this past weekend to Chengdu and mid-trip decided to pop down to Leshan to see the GIANT Buddha that was carved into the mountain. Here are the best of the pictures I took: Giant Buddha 乐山大佛
