Comments on Street performer in Shanghai

There's a missing sentence from your blurb for this video. Here's the correct version:

From Youku, a street performer outside the Shanghai train station on January 1. Looks like it was a pretty windy day. WARNING: THIS VIDEO FEATURES SOUND THAT IS SO UNBELIEVABLY FUCKING LOUD IT MIGHT ACTUALLY DAMAGE YOUR HEARING. There's more video here.

If Danwei becomes any more NSFW, it's going to be hard to justify a daily browse...

Our apologies. I didn't realize it was all that loud when I posted it, but I guess our workplace may be a little more tolerant than yours.

Also, we've had reports from some of our readers outside of China that Youku is pretty slow. What sort of transfer rates do you get on your connection?

Not sure your workplace is more "tolerant" -- you'd be surprised who ends up Up Here -- but the sound drowned out the Host of Angels singing Eternal Praises to Me, which is something I personally will not tolerate.

And my connection speed has been good since Gabriel nixed the Cisco-built Heavenly Firewall. We've decided to use social engineering to get the Cherubs to stop browsing pr0n. Thanks for asking.
