It's probably been a literal 2 years since I've even logged into this site, had forgotten I even had it. But today came across the reminder in my Inbox and actually clicked it instead of immediately discarding it without reading. Since the last blog entry here, I've done a lot. My short film "Pigs in Zen" was in the Alternative Film Video Festival in Belgrade, as well as screened in various art galleries in Beijing, Malaysia, Shanghai and Berlin. "Goodbye Shanghai" won a bunch of awards. I di...Read more
Here's part of my half-hearted attempt to keep myself promoted. Notes: 2010 so far has been decent, as we launched a new TV show, "The Joy of Kitchen" 《乐享厨房》on Shaanxi TV 陕西卫士 6 pm Sunday nights.

The debut performance for my new theater/performance collective, 5th Wall, went much better than planned! We had about 175 paying customers over 3 shows, and well over 200 people in attendance, which was way more than we planned for!
For those of you to whom I haven't spoken in a while, I started 5th Wall with a couple of collaborators this fall. Our mission is to provide original, experimental performances here in Shanghai, breaking down the theatrical experience for the viewer so tha...Read more
My feelings on blogging are neatly summarized in the MC Frontalot song, "I Hate Your Blog."
