Surely Australian royalty in this context? Or Canadian royalty from your point of view? 😂💂

Huh??? People keep saying in the YT comments that 'Goodbye' sounds Chinese too. Can you explain why, please? They don't sound like any Chinese music I've heard.

I’m afraid I don’t know who to credit for this great picture someone just emailed me.

Mr Gow, you might like to know that Ms Hong Fincher says that she has "muted" some people because she can't cope with the pressure and has to meet a work deadline. Hopefully you were blocked by mistake. I don't agree with you, but your comments were reasonable.

Mr Stewart is referring to the 'Pots, not people' shift. For a quick intro to the debate, see here: (I found this by googling, so recommending that article, not the whole site)

It's a great article. But there's one point to add: Graham's preaching worked because almost all Westerners knew the basic outline of Creation-Fall-Redemption-Resurrection. They just needed to commit, turning facts in their head into heartfelt faith. That knowledge has gone too.

Doklam? Where's that?! 🙉 It's not a place you'll see mentioned in Bhutanese official media.

The Bhutanese regime is extremely good at propaganda and nobody ever seems to question it.

The accommodation mentioned is privately owned and privately maintained. Doesn't the private sector need to take some responsibility too?

It's pretty normal for films to be released on different countries at different times. Until the late 90s it was often many months between e.g. UK and US premieres.

The leading evangelical magazine 'Christianity Today' published a (cover?) story warning that IBT was run by a cult two or three years ago.

Cheer up! 😂👍👍 Have you seen the instrumental/'making of' MV for 'Goodbye'? You'd think an instrumental doesn't need engsub but this one does.... 🎤

This will only happen if there's a revolution. Look at the list of white people given citizenship since 1949: they're all personal friends of Mao. And look at the law on who got automatic HK citizenship on 1997.7.1: it's explicitly racist.

Lactose intolerance is the normal state of human beings. Lactose tolerance is a mutation present in some northern Europeans & their descendants. He's been rejected for being human! 😱

That isn't actually what the people are charged with. Identity theft and fraud are crimes for US citizens and foreigners alike. That's important, because it means there's no double standard here.

is definitely Chinese. But I wonder, is this perhaps fundamentally a generational issue? Now that the Mainland has more pop culture of its own (Hunan TV, Wolf Warrior, Jane Zhang, etc., etc.), perhaps 90后/00后 are less exposed to Cantonese culture & language??

A decade ago it was reported that the 春晚 dress rehearsal was watched by a PBSC member, who made the final call about running order/deletions. Things may have changed, but there can be little doubt that the show gets high-level attention.
