The Paul Collins Beat performed at Downtown Bar a couple days ago. Here are some photos of the show that were posted by disintegration.qzone.qq.com. Something about this band makes me wanna be with a rock n roll girl…

Dinner in Badaguan, Qingdao

March 13, 2014 in Photos by Steven

Amanda demonstrates the perfect form for using chopsticks during a dinner in Badaguan, Qingdao. Get more info on Badaguan here, and about using chopsticks here. The young lady’s info is not shared, but if you do see her around Qingdao, ask about the Yang Boshi Peanut Challenge (not to be confused with other regular old peanut/chopstick challenges) – the most peanuts lined up in a left to right row, picked up with chopsticks …. the record is 4. Check out more photos of Badaguan (Taipingjiao) in Qingdao.

Qingdao Spring Beach

March 13, 2014 in About Qingdao, Photos by Steven

Only in Qingdao can one go to the beach in March, in a coat, and dig in the sand. Just ask Ethan Gu’s daughter, whose photos were sent in by her baba. The location is the Old Stone Man Beach, known in Qingdao as “Shi Lao Ren“. Check out these other photos from a foreign student Kine at the Shi Lao Ren Beach during Summer. For more on Qingdao and the number 2 Beach (not what it appears, it’s a nice place, really!), check out this CNNgo feature on China’s “Beach Lined City”, that would be Qingdao.

Viva la primavera Qingdao!

January 13, 2014 in Photos by Steven


Check out this vintage photo of an “Old Outside” shagging a ride on the back of a minibus in Qingdao. Tales of this curly haired giant Deadhead hitching through Taidong are recalled by seasoned Qingdaonese bus riders from the 90′s. Note the lack of cars on pre Millennial streets.
