Lay Down Outdoor 仆街劇頭

A new kind of outdoor exercise display.
仆街風潮與廣告風波。

台灣行政院陸委會請到在網路上爆紅的「仆街少女」, 拍攝觀 光宣傳短片。 2位少女在台灣各個觀光景點「仆」在地上的相片,原本希望藉以吸引港澳遊客來台觀光,不料卻被港媒批評用「仆街」做廣告,根本是用粗話在迎客,台灣網友也痛批陸委會無知,連香港文化都不懂,還想吸引國人家來觀光。
台灣網友罵翻天,批評陸委會真的是「沒救了」。「無聊當有趣,kuso當政績」,反問陸委會說,要是外國將台罵「O你娘」硬要說成是宣 傳創意,那台灣人會不會買單? 不過,陸委會則是護航到底,表示「尊重不同意見,陸委會只想呈現台灣社會的活力與熱情」。

Vivien Leigh 費雯麗

風靡世紀電影「飄」的女主角費雯麗。
Vivien Leigh (Mary Hartley), Lady Olivier (5 November 1913 Born in Darjeeling, Bengal, India– 8 July 1967 53 years old) was an English actress. She won a Best Actress Academy Award for her portrayal of Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire (1951), a role she also played on stage in London's West End, as well as her portrayal of the southern belle Scarlett O'Hara, alongside Clark Gable, in the epic civil war drama Gone With The Wind.
In 1969, a plaque to Leigh was placed in the actors' church, St Paul's, Covent Garden; and, in 1985, a portrait of her was included in a series of postage stamps, along with Alfred Hitchcock, Charles Chaplin, Peter Sellers, and David Niven to commemorate "British Film Year".

The ROC Flag 國旗國格

Is Republic of China a province of China? No. Taiwan is The Republic of China, The Republic of China is Taiwan, definitely not a province of China.
Old news new awareness: You cannot display the national flag of the Republic Of China(ROC) but the People Republic Of China's five stars flag.(PROC).

中華民國的國格在那裡? 台灣是中華民國, 中華民國是台灣, 不是中國台灣省。
舊聞重播: 在台灣凡有中國來台交流活動時不准懸掛中華民國國旗, 郤可掛中華人民共合國的五星旗。現在總統立委要選舉了, 中國國民黨馬英九又在說愛「台灣」掛中華民國「國旗」騙台灣人的選票啦。

Can we recover?
Will the world ever be
A place of peace and harmony
With no war and with no brutality?
If we loved each other
We would find victory
But in this harsh reality
Sometimes I'm so despondent that I feel the need to

Fly like a bird
Take to the sky
I need you now, Lord
Carry me high
Don't let the world break me tonight
I need the strength of you by my side
Sometimes this life can be so cold
I pray You'll come and carry me home.

4 Dangers and 3 Persistences 四個危險三個堅持

蔡英文黨主席對馬英九總統「兩岸和平協議」的回應
DPP Chairman Tsai Ing-wen responses to
President Ma Ying-jeou KMT's "Cross-Strait Peace Agreement"
中國國民黨和馬英九的「兩岸和平協議」,將使台灣人民面臨「四個危險」:
第一、犧牲台灣主權:中國最近兩任領導人多次提出「在一個中國的原則下,終止兩岸敵對的狀態,簽署和平協議」的主張,試圖凸顯兩岸是國內議題,並確立「一個中國」原則。

第 二、改變台海現狀:簽署兩岸政治協議的前提,必須先明確認定兩岸雙方的主權定位,這必然將改變過去半個世紀台海兩岸主權互不隸屬的現狀。在對岸堅持「一個 中國」的原則下-,將落入兩岸事務屬於中國「國內事務」的陷阱,如此將排除國際社會共同維持台海現狀與區域穩定的正當性,中國也可以名正言順地阻止任何國 家對台軍售。

第三、危及民主價值:台灣與中國之間任何的政治協商必須有民主授權與「台灣共識」為前提。而馬總統逕自將此一高度爭議、影響台灣前途的議題列為重大政策,操弄成為選舉的議-題,這種輕率與冒進的作法,非但不尊重民意,且製造社會的爭議和對立。

第四、破壞戰略縱深:將「和平協議」納入「黃金十年」當中,言明要在10年內處理,無異於設定了政治談判的時間表。馬總統的躁進與莽撞,讓台灣失去了兩岸折衝時所需要的籌-碼。

民主進步黨和蔡英文的主張, 「三個堅持」為前提:
一、堅持主權:堅持國家主權的立場,任何兩岸協商不能以「一個中國」做為政治前提。

二、堅持民主:堅持2300萬人民享有決定台灣前途的權利,任何涉及變更台灣現狀的政治協商結論,必須以公民投票為前提。

三、堅持和平:堅持中國必須撤除對台灣的武力威脅,放棄武力威脅的意圖才是真正促進台海永久和平的基礎。

NT$316 增316元

Ma's government will increase senior farmer's benefit by NT$316 equivalent to US$10 per month, from current NT$3,000 and with strict restrictions. Senior military retirees from NT$13,550 to NT$14,150 with other fringe benefits. He doesn't care about Taiwan senior farmers. Reject KMT Ma, elect DPP Tsai for Taiwan President January 14, 2012.

馬政府公布將每個月增加老農津貼補助316元目前是3,000元,附加離農津貼條件以及排富條款等措施。這種政策根本就是把「老農」當「賤民」,充滿「階級歧視」。老榮民養老金額,從13550元調高為14150元,每人每月增加600元。而丟給老農民一根316元骨頭。(註:台幣316元對換約美金10元)。這樣的政府這樣的馬英九還可讓他再連任四年嗎?

Railroad Lunchbox 台鐡便當

This video reminded me my faded college school day commute. I had to take 12+ hours local train back and forth. There were tea and lunchbox services on the train and at train stations. I could still hear the voice, "Lunchbox, lunchbox, hot lunchbox,..."

這段影片勾起了我大學時代南北乘搭台鐵火車的記憶: 多多年前,火車上有專門的倒茶服務員,得一手提著熱茶壺,一手幫客人斟茶。記憶中每回上學校和返家在台鐵十二個多鐘頭慢車上煤炭煙薰加上人擠人的滋味; 還有火車上和車站的叫賣聲 「便當,便當, 熱的便當, ...」。

The Red Bean Poem 紅豆詞

This song, The Red Bean Poem (Verse of Hongdou Ci), lyrics from the classic Qing dynasty novel The Dream of Red Chamber. 
 
『紅豆詞』曹雪芹詞,劉雪庵曲。

滴不盡相思血淚拋紅豆
開不完春柳春花滿畫樓
睡不穩紗窗風雨黃昏後
忘不了新愁與舊愁
咽不下玉粒金波噎滿喉
瞧不盡鏡里花容瘦
展不開的眉頭挨不明的更漏
展不開的眉頭挨不明的更漏
啊……
恰便似遮不住的青山隱隱
流不斷的綠水悠悠

Salute 敬禮

看了這則新聞
『比輸軍階 馬向倫斯斐敬禮
國防部長高華柱昨在美國國防部前部長倫斯斐(Donald Rumsfeld)演講前致辭透露,馬英九總統接見倫斯斐時,倫斯斐發現兩人都出身海軍,開玩笑說馬比較資淺,應向他敬禮,結果馬真的向倫斯斐敬禮。』
報導說是玩笑, 我的笫一個反應是馬有失國格。非關軍階高低資歷深淺, 「馬的」是代表台灣(中華民國)國家正式接見一位外國退任的國防部長; 中華民國(台灣)總統是三軍統帥, 倫斯斐理應向馬英九敬禮才是, 那有馬向倫斯斐敬禮的道理。有失外交禮儀, 自扁身份不可取。在非正式的場合開開玩笑輕鬆氣氛則人之常情。
喔, 這不是笫一次, 陳雲林在馬接見時不稱他總統, 叫他「您」。飽讀四書五經的人 這樣不自重又如何讓別人敬重呢。

Same Root 同根生

台:「哼!你才是豬咧!」
看不下去的老師說話了:「既然都是豬,就該和平相處。」
茶翁說:「既然都是同根生, 何必以一千多顆飛彈對準台灣, 在台中國人又何必吵嚷要回歸中國; 中國, 台灣兄友弟恭和睦共生, 多好啊。」
「喔, 在台灣要與中國統一的人, 請儘管回你的中國去歸根落葉吧。」

My Beloved Taiwan 心愛的台灣

Lyric by Dr. George Mackay from his memoirs From Far Formosa, a missionary from Canada in 1872. Dr.Mackay established a new educational system, esp. for female education. He also brought in new western civilization , new plants and medical sources. During his 29 years missionary work Dr. Mackay founded over 60 churches. Approximately half million people have received or affected by his programs though his missionary stay in Taiwan. He was buried in Taiwan.

歌詞出自馬偕台灣回憶錄From Far Formosa。最早的教育學府—牛津學堂,是馬偕自1872年由加拿大來台宣教中,對於台灣人民最大的貢獻;一八七二年三月九日,加拿大基督長老教會宣教師馬偕叡理(Rev.Dr.George Leslie Mackay) 登陸淡水,作佈教、教育及醫療工作。擇定淡水砲台埔小山丘上,興建校舍,並親自規劃監工,1882年校舍建成後,為感念其家鄉安大略省牛津郡(Oxford County)居民的捐助,遂命名Oxford College,中文名為:理學堂大書院,後人稱之為牛津學堂。馬偕過世後葬於台灣。
