Wow, I didn't know there was a grafitti scene in China; on the other hand, (a) why shouldn't it  (b) haven't been there for years.
This bohemian mansion is terrific, has a touch of Hundertwasser.  This project was very likely officially authorized (for the sake of tourism), right?

There was a five year plan to move all Chongqing universities outside the mountain barrier near Shapingba.  This was to accelerate economic development in the communities of the region that had not changed significantly since the period of the peoples communes.  At the same time, moving the young people away from city center reduced their exposure to the influences of gambling and prostitution.  Creating the graffiti street was a way of having huangjiaping remain an important artists location and destination after the removal of the art institute... Not sure if it worked but I hope so.

Amazing info, thanks! Well, I'm not the one to judge – but I've never heard taking away educational infrastructure would increase a region's employment and wealth ...  Now it gives me a bitter aftertaste, not to keep the whole art institute, along with the graffiti street. Surely now it's at least a compromise, so yes, knock on wood!  Anyway I wonder, how modern graffiti culture in (mainland) China looks like. Since probably I soon won't go there myself, hopefully there will be documentaries some day.

Also, pretty sure that Moneistruth is a troll. No one can claim that buying an iPhone makes someone moral and be serious.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=AfzQzG… Its scary to think that Microsoft is planning to make every computer on the globe obsolete by software design.  Think of the magnitude of the waste.

Microsoft has been using planned obsolescence for a very long time. Along with hundreds of other companies. It's really sad, and it seems that the only viable solution right now is to buy as local as possible, and to take really good care of your things. By all means my laptop should not function as it's almost 5 years old.

That's another reason for me to use Linux. So I still got 32-bit machines from the time of XP, and run up-to-date and safe(r) software on them. For everyday business, I don't need much ressources. Btw I read more and more (Asian) governments are about to change towards free OSes in their institutions and in education.

Amazing picture. Not what I immediately expect as a street scene in China! :)

Judging by the numer of comments hidden by the owner this has sparked some kind of controversey, but I don't read Chinese so cannot guess what it was. :(

It was just a Chinese guy who is upset about how important girls think an iPhone is.  I suggested some western philosophy on happiness and he said it was garbage.  I suggested some Chinese philosophy on happiness and he said it was garbage. I suggested he learn about NPD and possibly seek treatment.  :P  This is right across from a gate of a major art institute.  The colleges in the city proper are being moved to impoverished areas recently made accessible by new roads and tunnels.  The idea is to spur development in the new college city and at the same time move the students away from the city center where there are more negative influences.  Since many businesses cater to the student population there is concern that moving the school will hurt.  They came up with the idea of making the street into an "art street" with a lot of studios and tourist attractions etc. Hope it works out.

No controversy really. It was just this crazy guy that is advocating mass murder of Chinese people by an aerial bombing campaign because he can't afford to buy an iPhone for some girl. :P He started out claiming that the graffiti proved government oppression of the poor or something and I told him I lived there and a lot of average people do. Somehow it turned out wanting to advocate mass killing because of iPhones was what he was really wanting to talk about. I asked him to chill out and he wouldn't so I Great Firewalled him. :D ;P He might be one of those run amok stabbing people types. Kinda scary. [link] He calls himself "I am" like god in the Bible and has seriously violent fantasies. I just didn't want that crap on my page.

Narcissistic Personality Disorder [自恋型人格障碍,简称NPC] 与冯小刚谈电影创作的联系
2010-07-18 15:24:11
由美国精神病学协会(American Psychiatric Association)2000年版诊断与统计指南(Diagnostic and Statistical Manual)对自恋型人格障碍的定义如下:

个体符合以下9条标准的5条及以上,并且在各种场合下都表现出固定的行为模式:

1. 对自我的重要性有一种宏伟堂皇的感觉。

2.先入为主的认为自己应该活的无限制的成功、权利、才能、美貌或者理想爱情。

3.认为自己特别、独一无二,应当且只能被其他同样特别或者地位高的人理解,伴随。

4.要求过量的仰慕。

5.有一种理所当然享有一切的感觉。

6.人际交往中对他人持一种剥削和利用的态度。

7.缺乏同情心和换位思考的能力。

8.经常嫉妒他人或者认为他人嫉妒自己。

9.表现出傲慢,蔑视他人、恩赐他人的行为和态度。

这篇日记似乎适合我豆瓣里很多个具有此倾向的人。转自《三联生活周刊》

今日看到三联专门做的《唐山大地震》的媒体宣传。文章中被采访的导演冯小刚,说了一句令我吃惊不已的人,也使我忽然明白了很多。冯小刚就不是个自恋的人。

“我的电影一定要和观众建立一个沟通渠道,这是我的本能。我怎么可能比观众高端呢,我比观众水平高?我比观众对生活的认识深刻,我比观众有智慧……如果你这样想的话,你首先是个非常愚蠢的人。但真的你看,很多导演,他们都这么认为,然后你经常可以听到他们说,我不愿意拍一些迎合观众的电影。这句话是什么意思呢?他是这样的感觉。我高你低,他才能说出这样的话来啊。这儿在座的都是观众,怎么就说您比人高啊?要说对生活的认识,谁也谁更肤浅啊?”

We have here another instance of a prevalence of a constellation of negative affects manifesting in an obsessive repetition of negating ideological themes that attempt to dominate discourse by repetition itself and as a result must reject any attempt to use logic or reason.

"Affect refers to the experience of feeling or emotion.[1] Affect is a key part of the process of an organism's interaction with stimuli. The word also refers sometimes to affect display, which is "a facial, vocal, or gestural behavior that serves as an indicator of affect" (APA 2006).

The affective domain represents one of the three divisions described in modern psychology: the cognitive, the conative, and the affective. Classically, these divisions have also been referred to as the "ABC of psychology", in that case using the terms "affect", "behavior", and "cognition". In certain views, the conative may be considered as a part of the affective,[2] or the affective as a part of the cognitive.[3]" [link]

你看起来比较悲观。应该看一下哈佛大学幸福课。 公开的。也有中文字幕。[link] 这样的话会开心点。 写中文吧。你的英文我看不懂。 不好意思。 无为这个概念学过吗? 我自己经常学。 天天心里很安静。 要了解consumerism的话,最好从心理学开始吧。[link]

教养很重要。

逍遙遊:
惠子謂莊子曰:「吾有大樹,人謂之樗。其大本擁腫而不中繩墨,其小枝卷曲而不中規矩,立之塗,匠者不顧。今子之言,大而無用,眾所同去也。」莊子曰:「子獨不見狸狌乎?卑身而伏,以候敖者;東西跳梁,不避高下;中於機辟,死於罔罟。今夫斄牛,其大若垂天之雲。此能為大矣,而不能執鼠。今子有大樹,患其無用,何不樹之於無何有之鄉,廣莫之野,彷徨乎無為其側,逍遙乎寢臥其下?不夭斤斧,物無害者,無所可用,安所困苦哉!」 You can lead a horse to water but you can't make him drink.

Life and career

He was born in Granville Summit, Pennsylvania to parents Philip J. Packard and Mabel Case Packard. Between 1920-32 he attended local public schools in State College, Pennsylvania where his father managed a farm owned by the Pennsylvania State College (later Penn State University). In 1932 he entered Penn State, majoring in English. He graduated in 1936, and worked briefly for the local newspaper, the Centre Daily Times. He earned his master's degree at the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism in 1937. That year, he joined the Boston Daily Record as a staff reporter and a year later, he married Virginia Matthews.

About 1940, he became a reporter for the Associated Press and in 1942, joined the staff of The American Magazine as a section editor, later becoming a staff writer. The American Magazine closed in July, 1956, and Packard moved over to Collier's where he worked as a writer. Collier's, too, closed by the end of 1956, allowing Packard to devote his full attention to writing books. In 1957, The Hidden Persuaders was published and received national attention. The book launched Packard's career as a social critic and full-time lecturer and book author. In 1961 he was named a Distinguished Alumnus of Penn State University. He died in 1996 at the Martha's Vineyard Hospital in Massachusetts.
The Hidden Persuaders
"The Hidden Persuaders" redirects here. For the 2011 British film, see The Hidden Persuaders (film).
Vance Packard's book The Hidden Persuaders, about media manipulation in the 1950s, sold more than a million copies.

In The Hidden Persuaders, first published in 1957, Packard explores the use of consumer motivational research and other psychological techniques, including depth psychology and subliminal tactics, by advertisers to manipulate expectations and induce desire for products, particularly in the American postwar era. He identified eight "compelling needs" that advertisers promise products will fulfill. According to Packard these needs are so strong that people are compelled to buy products to satisfy them. The book also explores the manipulative techniques of promoting politicians to the electorate. The book questions the morality of using these techniques.[1]
