    On the subject of WoW and China, I've always wondered how Mists of Pandaria was received by Chinese and Korean audiences. As a lame mashing together of East Asian tropes? Boring because it was overly...

    I held out for a long time too. Caved a few years back. The 'phone' bit is secondary -- or rather, of no greater significance than any of the other utility functions of a modern smartphone e.g....

    I was recommended and saw this film a while back for the famous (in certain circles) Vespa scene. A delightful film, I agree.
