8:56 pm - fair trade internet shopping site
Fair Trade's getting mainstreamed. Slowly. Slowly.

http://store.americanapparel.net/

This site is amazing. Internet clothes shopping site. The page design is so good. It's pleasurable just to browse. There are little models, and you can rotate them and see the garments from all angles (by clicking the 'more photos' little icon). Helps for the undies. You can check exactly how far those fair trade g-strings go up your arse.

When are we going to get a store here?

Labour MPs leaked Bush's proposal to bomb al-Jazeera


· Information on president's wish passed to US contact
· Aide and official facing charges over document

The Guardian


Two Labour MPs have defied the Official Secrets Act by passing on the key contents of the British document revealing that President George Bush wanted to bomb the Arabic TV station, al-Jazeera.
The document, a transcript of a meeting with Tony Blair in April 2004, is already the subject of an unprecedented official secrets prosecution in Britain, against an aide to one of the MPs and another man.

David Keogh, a Cabinet Office employee, is charged with leaking information damaging to international relations to Leo O'Connor, researcher to Tony Clarke, former MP for Northampton South. The two are due to appear in court today for committal hearings.

Poster boys!
What was I thinking?

Perhaps a reaction to thinking too hard about about the ills of the world

3:09 pm - boy of the hour
I don't have posterboys all over my room or anything

I just like this one (my userpic) and seeing as I'm in a China-mood everyday these days (and I romantic mood ALL THE TIME), I thought I'd post it.

You seen Balzac & the Little Chinese Seamstress? Beautiful, beautiful man in that movie. LuoMin, played by ChenKun. Puty I haven't found a better picture online.

Aaaahhh how I miss that boyish, effeminate Chinese style

11:30 am - Wal-Mart in China
http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/english/doc/2004-11/29/content_395728.htm

(a little outdated now, but still staggering!)

SOME HIGHLIGHTS

"If Wal-Mart were an individual economy, it would rank as China's eighth-biggest trading partner, ahead of Russia, Australia and Canada."

"Last year, the firm bought US$15 billion products from China, half from direct purchasing, the other from the firm's suppliers in China."

"So far, more than 70 per cent of the commodities sold in Wal-Mart are made in China."

[013] Young Girls Bathe in Public (1/4/2006) In yesterday's post, Young Girl Bathes in Public, at least the young girl was wearing a swimming costume when she leapt into the bathtub in front of the spectators. Of course, such a gimmick goes stale quickly and it is necessary to beat it. Indeed, someone has...
