Pingxi Sky Lantern 2010

Post your northern Taiwan events here! (Events in Taipei and Xinbei should be posted in the Taipei / Xinbei Events forum.)
Forum rules
This forum is for the listing, promotion, and discussion of the specifics of events in northern Taiwan (but not Taipei/Xinbei). Please include a date in your title (e.g. 3/25) and - in the post - an address in English if possible. If you are providing the information in the form of an online photograph/flyer/poster, it is also advisable to provide the essential details in text as well, so as to facilitate ease of cut-and-paste.

As we wish to encourage people to post their events here, negative commentary isn't welcome in the Events forums. You are, however, more than welcome to post the same debate-encouraging negative criticism of bands, artists, etc. in the Arts & Entertainment or other appropriate forums.

Please PM the Moderators or Admin if you have any concerns or queries.

There was a concert in Pingxi too. Kou Chou Ching (I think that's their name) were on. They were terrible - the general reaction in the crowd around us was along the lines of "WTF is this".

I got one landed in my yard, still burning. Melted all over my favourite rose bush. Just glad the kid wasn't playing there at the time. :fume:
Fucking fuckers.

Not the ones they are fishing out of the rivers in the Pingxi area. They'll be cleaning for months.

The frames are metal, and the paper can be substituted by plastic/thicker paper. If they were teh traditional ones -bamboo and rice paper- they would burn faster, but the last master maker is too old so the technique is al but lost. We are stuck with the "modern equivalents"... made in China, I suppose?

The American oligarchy spares no pains in promoting the belief that it does not exist, but the success of its disappearing act depends on equally strenuous efforts on the part of an American public anxious to believe in egalitarian fictions and unwilling to see what is hidden in plain sight.
