SEO list: Where to add your Google Sitemaps.

You've created the Google Sitemaps file with one of the many available Wordpress plugins? You added it to your Google Webmaster Tools account? You added it to your robots.txt file? Good. I did that, too. But all that work, just for Google? Of course, Google is the mighty giant and most important, but now that you have gone through all the hardships creating it, why not…

WARNING! Do not buy The Sims 2: Pets (if you have a wife)!

After buying the Nintendo Wii the weekend before last, we headed back to the store on friday evening where we bought it, near line 2 station Dongchang road. We wanted a second Wii controller all week badly to play Wii Sports: Tennis and other games against each other, and the game store lady told us she would have new ones in last week. And she did!…

Buying a Nintendo Wii in Shanghai.

I wanted a Xbox 360. But then I saw that the prices for HDTV's didn't drop that much and that we probably weren't going to buy one anytime soon. No HDTV, no Xbox 360 necessary. I don't wanna play Halo 3 on a 21 inch screen TV. Who would? So I thought, this might be a good time to buy something to get rid of all…

Insane rain in Pudong!

I just had left my home to walk to Longyang road to grab a subway to go downtown for lunch with a friend, when a insane rainstorm started. In the last days it had rained here every once in a while, mostly for about 5 minutes. So I thought 'let's wait', which was a big mistake. 3 minutes later I was completely wet, from up to…

Old Shanghai in Ang Lee's new movie.

Lust, Caution: Old Shanghai

Lust, Caution is the new movie from Ang Lee. Most of the story seems to take place in 'occupied Shanghai', so I am guessing in the late 1930's? The story is about a 'ordinary' girl who has to make a dude fall in love with her, then kill him. That bitch! Just kidding, the story seems way more deep than my words could ever describe it... But that's what you would expect from a director who can turn cowboys gay, isn't it? Anyways, there are only very few shots of old Shanghai in the movie, it must be more difficult with each day and every new skyscraper to 'turn back time'. Most of the shots are pretty dark, which is clever, so the removing of the skyscraper-lights gets kinda easy... I know video editing, just believe me. Still, there are some day shots like in the image above. So check out the trailer if you're into Shanghai's history look. The trailer is, of course, available at apple.com in 25 different HD resolutions. Check it out.

Top 25 Cities with skyscrapers.

German magazine "Spiegel" has published a list of 25 cities - ordered by the amount of skyscraper they have. It's a quite interesting list and it even has some surprises. Shanghai will, of course, sooner or later rise to No. 1 - don't worry! Here we go:

Hongkong by AP

No. 1: Hongkong, China! 7422 skyscrapers.

No. 2: New York City, USA! 5445 skyscrapers.

No. 3: Singapore! 3503 skyscrapers. 4 million people.

Bluetooth-posters for Tarantino's Death Proof in Germany!

So Tarantino's part of the Grindhouse series titled Death Proof finally reaches Germany. They are going to show Death Proof in cinemas first, and Rodriguez' part Planet Terror one or two months later. Since there are no Matinee-cinemas in Germany it makes kind of sense - you have to adjust to your audience, not the other way around. Anyway, german distributer Senator must have found a…

Whenever a doctor cannot do good, he must be kept from doing harm.

Warning! The following post is rather... 'rough' and makes multiple use of the s-word. And the d-word. Now you'll probably want to read it even more, huh? So this whole mess started almost a month ago, but I didn't want to write about it before it was over. Now my stomach is back in order, I can eat whatever I want whenever I want without having…

Yepp, that's fun. I love spam!
