    No, Chinese girls aren't sluts. No, foreign students aren't players. It's just a town full of geeks with low standards.

    It's a fresh history that Campuses of Qinghua and PKU OFFCIALLY became public parks and tourist spots.

    Remember students from these universities complained alot about how the visitors ruined the enviroment and disturbed their lives when national holidays came. No idea how this tourism part works now, but at least they can get some money for hiring people to clean up the mess visitors left.

    The Red House is the best dive bar in 5dk. Their pizza is cheap and a damned sight better than Pyro's. The alcohol is solid. Besides the cheap draft beer, they have Chimay and a couple of other good Belgian ones. It's Wudaokou's shanzhai version of The Tree (owner/operator is a former employee).

    D-22 and 13 Club are solid music venues. I've never been disappointed by a show at D-22. I've never been to 13 Club because I don't care for metal.

    The Bridge's coffee and atmosphere are superior to Starbucks by several orders of magnitude, plus they have okay food and decent wine. It is only quiet because it is expensive. Their American style breakfast is the best deal in town. Pete is right to call this the best cafe in the world. It is everything a cafe should be.

    Lush and Pyro's are okay, but their in-your-face American-ness unsettles this septic. Beer pong and pub trivia are probably the most important customs for us to share with the locals, however, so when the time comes for the Great Cleansing Fire of Purgation, these places and their occupants will be spared. Except for the management. Backs against the wall, you motherfucking pigs!

    Helen's is awesome for lunch during the day, and at night it's great if you take it easy on the fake cocktails, order a hookah, and slip a few chunks of hashish under the tinfoil when no one is looking. Otherwise, the clientele will annoy the fuck out of you and you'll end up with a wicked hangover from their shitty booze.

    La Bamba's Mexican food is the weak sauce and Propaganda is a festering abcess on the ass of humanity. I don't know about Sensations, but if the scene is anything like PPG, then it ought to be filled with concrete with everyone inside.

    It's a crying fucking shame that the huge beer garden by the subway isn't open this year. That place was the bee's knees.

    The biggest problem I have with Wudaokou is the people. The quantity and the quality. If someone handed me a sword on a Friday night and set me loose in Wudaokou, my arms would get tired before the cops would catch me. And I imagine the chengguan would cheer me on, seeing as they're not allowed to display their characteristic brutality so near the nation's most prominent universities. This laxity of the normally bloodthirsty parapolice is the best explanation I have for the remarkably large number of beggars and vendors permitted to choke the streets in this neighborhood. In any sort of homicidal rampage, I'd spare those unfortunate souls and assault their patrons first.

    "Hot Box of Suck" (http://www.thebeijinger.com/reviews/2010/07/16/Hot-Box-of-Suck)

    "This dark shoebox of a club is probably my least favorite bar/club in Beijing. I would not say this lightly. Stepping into the cavernous confines of the club's "dancefloor", I can almost smell the STDs in the air. Raging dickheads waddle through the throngs of students, parting the human seas to reach the bar, where they can purchase another cheap glass of death booze with which to fortify themselves for a night of creepster-ing and generally being an a-hole. Did I mention that I don't like the clientele? Anyway, if you're on a budget and like hearing the same ten or fifteen songs played in a row, I suppose Propaganda is the place for you."

    Exit G, one of the line 4 ones. It's the exit right outside KFC, though I think if you take C from line 2 then walk towards KFC you'll go past it too.

    @ Dando, Scott: Chinese black beer is not stout, but it's pretty heavy. It's not brewed with the same microbrewery specialist enthusiasim/pretension so it's not exactly exceptional but that doens't mean it's bad. You'll never find it bottled though, only on tap. Usually served right out of the tanker it was fermented in. Down in Henan there are quite a few big outdoor BBQ places that do red and black beer stupidly cheap, usually just finished that day. It's not only Qingdao that has the good beer.

    There's a place not too far from my neighborhood that serves black and green beer. Scott and I rolled down there a month or so ago, it was pretty alright, actually.

    Repetitive music has often been negatively linked with Freudian thanatos. Theodor Adorno (1948, p. 178) provides an example in his criticism of Igor Stravinsky, whose, "rhythmic procedures ostinato closely resemble the schema of catatonic conditions. In certain schizophrenics, the process by which the motor apparatus becomes independent leads to infinite repetition of gestures or words, following the decay of the ego." Similar criticism was levelled at Ravel's Bolero.

    Summer of...'07? '08? He came to a shithole nightclub in northern Michigan. It was transcendental. He poured a bottle of Hennessy on the front row and offered up a very profane prayer at the end of the evening. And of course he stopped, dropped, opened up shop, etc. One of the best hip-hop shows I've ever seen.
