early contender for flyer of the year here.
Morgan, aka Da Admiral, aka Desert Fuck Eagle, aka Dave VanBurren.. the editor of SmartShanghai and a dude whose presence will be missed in this city. He’s leaving Shanghai and moving to dat northside to start SmartBeijing.
i’m a bit worried he may have to return to Shanghai though because the quality of English-language journalism and websites in Beijing is so high…i’m not sure the market can handle another… seems redundant. I mean, Beijinger? They are killing the game. Look at that web design…that’s proto web 4.0.
pretty much every DJ in Shanghai is playing at Shelter tonight for this *free* send-off party, including Armtrick, ROM (Ice-9), Conrank, Drunk Monk, Lon, TzuSing, Hamacide, and myself.
So come down with some blue-box West cigarettes and gin & tonic tokens for Desert Fuck Eagle aka the dude who wrote this piece of primary-source journalism.
One of my favorite Shanghai moments was seeing Morgan’s band Boys Climbing Ropes play as The Velvet Underground on Halloween last year. Next-level.
I know you finna hold it down in dat north bra.
Velvet Underground – Femme Fatale
