Unhealthy obsession with high-school blow jobs. But enough about me; it's a fun site.

Not as outrageous as English Russia, but then they're two very different countries.

My favorite Chinablog / current events aggregator right now is EastSouthWestNorth.

Very nice, with a strong Shanghainese perspective. I've been reading it along with ESWN and they're both great reads.

This is a good one - it's really pretty up-to-date on what Chinese internet-goes (they call themselves "netizens" for some reason) are getting exercised about, and I love that they provide the forum reactions to all the stories. Which is usually an interesting mix of ultranationalism and criticism of the Chinese government.

tabloidish but nice to know the same appeal is present thus letting us know that all that stuff we buy at Walmart is helping them to become so much better human beings.

If China blogs are your thing, my expat brother runs his own over at It's kinda humorous, and has lots of pictures.

might I recommend China Vortex highly for a strategy/internet/business/economy perspective on China?
