ATROCITY news from China. I have to say this is a good one. I cannot imagine hiring a stripper for a funeral:

Christmas day I watched a new series on Netflix called Sensitive Skin. It stars Kim Cattrall and addresses Condo Cancer from the other side of the issue. Here we have a couple who are above middle age but are  going through a mid-life crisis. They sold the house in the burbs and move into a luxury condo. Can’t afford furniture, cash poor and the male half of this duo keeps experiencing his expensive Jaguar getting broken into. So here we have a couple who now live in an area undergoing gentrification. Interesting to see television addressing this issue. With early gentrification comes poor public service and irritated people. Still no stopping it in sight and no upgrades to our infrastructure. Oh well…stay tuned….
