alleged gangster, people like him bring shame to new territories folks, given i grew up and my parents devoted their youth and career in the NT.
post-it portrait profiling pathetic psychopath personage
juillet 2019 ne reste que 2 jours mais c’est déjà un moi assez fatiguant pour les hongkongais. les grands défilés ont été commencés en juin. la star ferry a été débordée des manifestants, les stations de métro mtr temporairement fermés etc. sont les situations jamais eu avant, au moins à hong kong, cette ville reconnue pour sa efficacité. j’ai pris plusieurs photos, toujours en désordre, mais ça vous donne un peu de mes idées pour ces dernières journées de perturbations.
it has been a busy june in hong kong. while cramped an occasional irrelevant post like the bread post into the fin-du-mois line up, this one jolted the hong kong protests aside as june 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of of the stonewall uprising. the struggle is far from over if one looks at the gender, social, economic, racial, etc. discrimination directed at lgbqtsti people, still rampant and sometimes vicious.
just like the poster of audre lorde project reads “the history of stonewall is trans”, and to that we should add people of color (i.e. latina/o/x, africans/blacks in usa’s problematic lingo) as a substantial number of them were among those courageous enough to revolt against the police raid.
as with many movements, those who pushed through the front line, the most radical, the most marginalized did not see or had benefited minimally from the fruits of their struggle. sylvia rivera actually had relaunched street transvestite action revolutionaries (S.T.A.R.) a year or so before the end of her life, if that’s benchmark to show how much and at the same time how little had been achieved, for the marginalized within the margins of the lgbtqtsti people.
with corporate pride events choking major cities, let’s not forget the trailblazers, the most discriminated among the discriminated, the STARS that they are, twinkling in the distance with their blessings. on the 50th anniversary of stonewall and looking ahead for lgbtqtsti rights, we need their visionary lights to guide as in the never ending quest for social and economic justice.

If you leave
, a number plays its visits from time to time in the airwaves resembling a not-so-distant relative. Whether it’s from the radio or boombox, in the car or at a fast food joint, I always allowed its melody in to my unsuspecting ears. The music of the electronic 80s never falls out of favour, I wonder if it has anything to do with the above PG-13 but not risqué at all lyrics. Two other lame reasons for the song to occupy my brain space in me. Firstly, Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD) has a Merseyside origin, and Liverpool was where I lived away from home for a long period of time (just over a year) the very first time. Secondly, although I have never watched “Pretty in Pink” from the beginning till the end, Molly Ringwald, Andrew McCarthy and Jon Cryer do appear various other works, “Brat Pack” or not, that I like.
songs from “tous les soleils“, a film with many italian references make me remember it to this date. i dunno if i would have the same curiosity if i understand italiano and the various dialects / languages close-by.
“Luna Lunedda” (Pizzica) – La Tarantella: a very boisterous and joyous opening
with italianness exaggerated to hilarious proportions, perhaps to appease the residents of l’hexagone. the story took place in Strasbourg, centered on a professor of classical music to weave a credulous storyline.
“Silencio d’Amuri” is a rather sad or romantic number towards the end.
quelle fin triste mais egalement musicale
sogna fiore mio
the film reminded me of yves montrand and marcello mastroianni who left their marks in french cinema. how many famous french actresses or actors can perform in spanish or italian anyway?
ps. if u speak italian, can u tell me if any of the songs were sung in dialects or languages other than italian?

she might or might not be a significant figure of the expat and missionary communities in nanjing china in the world war ii era, what is written on her and her personal experience will sure be a part of the war / massacre / peace / never again narratives for a turbulent era. her name is Minnie Vautrin.
so here is what I penned around the christmas season of 2017:
what to write or not -rthk late night documentary repeat had an episode on the massacre in Nanjing, sooming my focus in and out throughout the 50 plus minute, a missionary’s story caught my attention – Minnie Vautrin 魏特琳. Reading this in December when everyone walking into shopping centres got bombarded with jingles make the contrast more vehmenly sad. Vautrin, probably suffered a nervous breakdown from witnessing so many people dying around her, took her life within a year of returning to USA for a sick leave.
today, 14 may is the anniversary of her suicide.
