Chinabounder’s Book

The “Shanghai Sex Blogger” is back in the news thanks to a press release pimpingtouting his new book. (No, it’s not about his sexploits in Shanghai; it’s about why China “will never be great.”) In that same link, Danwei puts the pieces together and reveals the blogger’s probable identity. If, at this point, anyone still cares.

What’s the deal with this Tim Lies bloke?

He read online that he’s an “actor”/”rock musician”/”Peking University Professor”.

I agree with Richard’s comment (on his Aug. 2006 post) that Chinabounder, if not for all the deliberately provocative and ultimately uninteresting sex talk, would make a very decent China blogger. I’ve read a few of the posts about his sexual misadventures in Shanghai, and I’m unimpressed. On the other hand, much of what he says in response to Zhang Jiehai’s lunatic ravings is right on the mark as far as I’m concerned. If it’s true that Zhang Jiehai is a professor of psychology at the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences, then he (Prof. Zhang) should be ashamed to be brought so low by a blogger whose aim is clearly to provoke just such a reaction. CB must have been delighted with the result. I’ll keep an eye out for his new book. If nothing else, it might provide a chuckle or two. And who knows, the book might also inspire a new generation of angry, fist-shaking fenqing. God knows, they’re always good for a laugh.

It is true that a mob of scrawny little angry chinese youth is a tremendously funny and entertaining.

Could Tim Lies be the real Chinabounder? Could he be Superman’s Clark Kent?
Could he be Dr. Jekyll’s Mr. Hide?

By day, he’s just a mild-mannered, nationalistic Peking University Professor…but, by night, he is transformed into a sex-crazed, hung, big-nosed, rock’n foreigner on-the-prowl!

If Tim Lies isn’t The Chinabounder, the real Chinabounder may have a legal claim against Tim Lies for stealing his persona:

“Megwoman charts the adventures of Lucifer Jones (played by Tim Lies), a middle-aged musician who winds up in China after being deported for unknown reasons from the United States. Upon meeting a motley crew of hedonistic English teachers, Jones chases the end of a rock rainbow where lies a pot of gigs in a handful of live venues. Being a “semi-autobiographical” production, the industrious Lies decided to cast himself in the lead role, which sees him bed numerous women and pursue a life akin to that of a boozed-up college undergrad.”

This Tim Lies fellow reminds me of Randall Pereenboom who wrote the book “China Modernizes”.

They’ve both figured out that all you’ve got to do is tell ’em what they want to hear, and they’ll eat it up.

50 Reasons Why China May Never Be Great by chinabounder? you gotta be f* kidding me! I mean, come on – is this guy serious? I would probably buy his “50 ways to get laid in China” rather than this one. If i want to know 50 Reasons Why China May Never Be Great, wouldn’t I get a book done by prominent economist or politician?

So question for the book buyers, why would you trust a d1ckhead for his political and economic views (in buying his book) when he is only famous for his d1ck?

That’s probably because no one in America has seen a skinny person since 1970.

โ€œ50 ways to get laid in Chinaโ€

You might as well save your money to pay for the sex in the first place since that’s what 99% of Asia expats do.

HAHAHAHHAA to perhaps true

“So question for the book buyers, why would you trust a d1ckhead for his political and economic views (in buying his book) when he is only famous for his d1ck?”

that made me laugh so hard. but seiously, in a lot of his posts you can sense that he does have great knowledge of China.

Hong: you are the one who is good for a laugh. You are a Chinese who goes round trying to affect the ways, language and mannerisms of ‘sensible’ white folk, laughing at the excitable coloreds.

You are no different from those countless Asian women who upon marrying their 65year old pot-bellied duds at the post office, then proceed to quack in this faux gwaipo accent. I don’t know how those white guys can put up with it. It would drive me up the wall. But then the white man who goes for a chinese girl is, in his own society, scraping the very bottom of the barrel, and is typically the type that most white women would instantly recoil from anyway. And he has probably spent time inside for kiddy-fiddling. Disgusting.
