Not sure Che would approve, but if they're like mine, your students probably would.

I don't know whether Mini Che is supposed to be straight kawaii, or whether he is supposed to belong to one of the kawaii subcults such as kimo-kawaii (weird-cute) or kawaii-noir.
Maybe it would be good to see more pop icons "cutified", just to stop us taking them too seriously.

That's the one I was talking about, right at Taipei main Station. I throw up in my throat a little every time I walk by....

Yeh, we've got one of those newly opened in Tainan, on the site of the former KFC. Ironic really.

I was going to take some pics for an introductory ppt, but you've saved me the trouble.

Havn't found any really suitable written material. The NCKU library has some stuff, but its a bit too heavy duty/serious/long for the students.

Really kicking myself about leaving that "coffee table" Che bio, which was about the right level, back in the yook. Could have Amazoned one, I guess, but pricy and too late now anyway. Maybe next year.

If you want to, I can help you translate some stuff from Spanish originals. Let's say it will be another perspective. :wink:

If its the place I think it is...thats right in my hood. The bakery across the alley is a great place.
BTW, I heard that KFC is coming back into that new building.

Them little mini-Che's are hilarious....tiny little killers on t-shirts...LOL!

That's very nice of you, but I'm not sure its worth it this time around. I'm fairly resigned to this being a half-assed effort on my part since I havn't done much with it yet and I'll have to start it this or next week (forgot this lot finish early).

If I have another one of these classes I'll maybe have another crack at it.

You can live here and have a great life and not be the least bit into living the local life. Clowns will try to diss you for it saying you gotta get down with the program, but fuck em, treat this place like a buffet and yous be on a diet.

I'm much more of a nasty rotter in real life, especially with vapid or vacuous verbiage from the ill read & intellectually challenged. - TheGingerMan
