"Joel - You can’t put that in your newspaper!
Maurice - Why not? It’s the role of journalism, to give people what they want!
Joel - No, that’s the role of professional wrestling."

Vem aí o “nevoeiro”

Hoje no nordeste da China abateu-se um “nevoeiro” histórico que provocou o fecho de auto-estradas, aeroportos e escolas. Neste video, onde não se menciona a palavra “poluição”, percebe-se a gravidade do problema. Todas as imagens são filmadas durante a manhã.

Nesta zona os sistemas de aquecimento central, fornecidos a carvão, começaram entre 15 e 20 de Outubro. Em Pequim e na província de Hebei o aquecimento estará disponível a partir de Novembro.

婚纱进行曲

Quando se passeia pelo principal jardim de uma cidade na China, é muito comum encontrar uma noiva seguida do noivo, fotógrafos e assistentes na criação do álbum de fotografias do casamento, mesmo que este seja só daí a uns meses. Esta colecção do jornal NetEase mostra o esforço, a paciência e a originalidade dos casais chineses na busca do click perfeito.

Snapline: A long snap shot ahead of Rockland 10 Years Party
Snapline’s music may sound futuristic, but it’s far from optimistic. Their songs contain none of the humming, gleaming prosperity that frontman Chen Xi remembers from the Star Trek reruns he watched as a youngster. Instead of harmonizing or singing, he screeches and rants (albeit rhythmically) against guitarist/keyboardistLi Qing’s apocalyptic riffs and Li Weisi’s bombed out baselines. It’s a soundtrack more suitable for Blade Runner than the starship Enterprise.

Weibo censors delete post of masked Mao portrait criticizing Beijing air pollution
Apparently the censors at Weibo are still quite touchy about the recent “airpocalypse” in Beijing, when the U.S. embassy’s air quality monitor seemed to go off the deep end and reported record high levels of pollution in the city back in January. The above image was found in the latest roundup at FreeWeibo, which relies in part on data from Weiboscope, a University of Hong Kong tool that checks popular Weibo feeds to see what posts have gone missing (that is, deleted/censored). Weibo posts with these images have gone missing on a number of feeds (1, 2, 3). Apparently the combination of Mao + criticism of Beijing’s air quality are a no go.
Translations:
Look at these two clever pictures! Haha. (看到两张神图![哈哈])
Just as the great leader said: The people, only the people, are the driving force in the creation of world history. Netizens are truly gifted! So creative. (【正如伟大领袖所言:人民,只有人民,才是创造世界历史的动力!网民太有才了!太有创意了!】)

Searching for Sugar Man

Ar, para que te quero?

Hoje o céu não só tem um misto de cores entre o cinzento e o laranja, com um sol distante e censurado pelas tais cores turvas, como emana um odor desagradável pelas ruas. A garganta tenta libertar-se de mucos que oxalá fossem só do tabaco e um sabor arenoso preenche toda a boca. Isto já não é apenas uma tempestade de areia. Se estás noutro lado do mundo, vai à janela e enche esses pulmões porque aqui respira-se um cenário semi-apocalíptico. — em Shijiazhuang, Hebei, China
