My poor blog, how I neglect you.
I'm in a frustrating position where I want to post here more often, but find myself without the time or inspiration for an entry. Or I twist myself in knots trying to think of the wittiest possible take on a subject before abandoning the idea as ultimately fruitless or "done somewhere else, probably better".
Then when I do get some time - such as a few stolen moments on holiday in Beijing last week - the Great Firewall stopped my upload attempts.
Anyway, that's enough self-flagellation - hopefully I will get a chance over the next few days to post a few things that have been sliding their way through my brain meats.
For now, I thought you might enjoy this short film made at the Shijingshan Amusement Park in Beijing's west.
My fellow improviser Amy - who I had travelled with to attend the fourth annual Beijing Improv Festival - was keen to check out the so-called "Fake Disneyland.
And so it was that we arrived on a Monday morning to find one of the strangest places on Earth.
