The Champagne Cabana / Re: Tv
« Last post by Granny Mae on Yesterday at 10:13:47 PM »
"If You Are The One" Is a show I'm watching on SBS VICELAND (Ch32) in Oz. It is about Chinese males choosing a female as a partner to either go out with or to get more involved. It is in Chinese with English sub titles. I am leaning quite a bit about how both sexes think. Has anyone else seen this? I expect it is being shown in China.

From Internet Novel to Screen: Are Adaptations Becoming Hot in China?

Romance, mystery, and martial arts — these are some of the most important ingredients that went into one of the year’s biggest initial public offerings (IPOs) of a Chinese technology company.

China Literature, web entertainment leader Tencent’s online publishing unit, saw its share price double on its first day of trading in Hong Kong on Nov. 8 after an immensely oversubscribed IPO that raised HK$8.33 billion ($1.07 billion).

The company, which was formed in a 2015 merger between Tencent Literature and Shanghai-based Shanda Cloudary, operates an online book marketplace similar to Amazon’s Kindle Store, as well as an e-reader service accessible through Tencent’s WeChat messaging app.

Some of China Literature’s e-books are free-to-read for the first few chapters, but users who get hooked must pay a fee to keep reading — a major source of revenue for the company.

China Literature has also been betting big on selling adaptation rights to novels or comic books published on its platform to filmmakers, TV producers or game developers. The Chinese film “So Young,” for example, premiered in 2013 after being adapted from the college romance novel “To Our Youth That Is Fading Away.”...

Fire Walk With Me (1992) (Remastered)

Did you have to have seen Twin Peaks first? To recognise how iconic Dale Cooper is, maybe. But he's barely in the movie. The movie is all Laura. ALL Laura. To love or hate Laura is to love or hate the movie. Anyway, 25 years ago, Laura told Agent Cooper "I'll see you again in twenty-five years," and the revival/reboot season 3 of Twin Peaks will start showing in 2017... so I watched the 1990 pilot, and I watched the 1991 finale (plus the two penultimate episodes), and I watched the movie, Fire Walk With Me. Twenty five years ago I did watch all of Twin Peaks too. Could the movie stand on it's own? I have no idea.

Watched this again. As a psychological horror odyssey with Laura at the center, it remains aces. (Sheryl Lee probably makes it - another actress might not have.) And just as the original Twin Peaks had a focus - the murder investigation - FWWM has a focus - Laura. And the ring exists in FWWM. A lot of things make a little more sense in Twin Peaks season 3 because of FWWM, and vice versa. I'm baffled that this movie should have been considered a failure, but I do remember that it was. I recall reading reviews saying it was an embarrassment to Lynch and a disappointment to fans. People are dumb.

There was a traveling salesman whose car became hopelessly stuck in a snow bank during a recent blizzard in North Dakota. It took him several hours to make it to the nearest farm house, but barely alive, he finally reached the front door and knocked on it.

An old farmer answered and the salesman pleaded for a place to spend the night. 'Why sure, young fella, I can give ya a place to bunk,' said the hospitable old man. 'But, I ain't got no daughter for ya to sleep with, like ya always hear about in them thar jokes.'

'Oh!' said the salesman. Then thinking a moment or two said, 'Just how much farther is it to the next house?'
