Diana and I discussed this one a fair amount today, because we thought that GQ’s Jim Nelson had really earned it, even though we disgraced his cheesedick-ass yesterday, but then we decided that, one day, we would run into the guy somewhere, kick the shit out of him, and that would be that.
Now on to the DISGRASIAN DU SEMAINE. It’s a two-parter.
This week, Disney announced that it will be releasing its first Chinese-language, animated movie this summer.
“We respect and appreciate the deep-rooted rich Chinese local culture,” Stanley Cheung, managing director of Disney China, said in a statement.
We concur! Chinese culture is rich! We invented the compass. We invented gunpowder. We invented spaghetti. Wow. It feels so weird to be on the same page as Disney.
But wait. There’s more:
The movie, based on a novel written by the late Chinese children’s writer Zhang Tianyi, is about a boy who discovers a gourd a squash-like vegetable often used in Asian dishes that grants him wishes.
Granted, this magic gourd is pretty damn cute.
