有天看見作家陶傑在看我好朋友在HK Magazine的文章，在香港有著同等娛樂性和機智口吻的大概就是陶先生吧。他的論政專欄就是有種Hunter S. Thompson的感覺，正是我杯茶。陶傑處處顯露他聰明的洞察力，也不乏幽讀者一默之舉。這本書結集了一些他的文章而成，不知道是不是只刊載HK Magazine，不過可以肯定的是全部都是舊文章。如果你是那些“我討厭政治”的人或不關心社會的話，可能看書的時候就了解不到箇中精妙，畢竟所有文章都是有關時事的。
I came across the writer Chip Tsao reading my homie’s articles in HK Magazine. The only other column I found entertaining and witty consistently was Chip’s political column. It had a bit of a Hunter S. Thompson tinge to it which is really how I like my political commentary. Chip has some smart ass observations most of the time, and humors the reader with it. This book is more or less a collection of some of his articles. I don’t know if they are exclusive to HK magazine, but none are new. Warning. If you do not know, or care for Hong Kong politics and current events. This collection is entirely based upon them, so it would be rather difficult to understand without knowing the back stories.
摘錄/Book excerpt ::
(關於K-pop歌手PSY還有他的大熱單曲“Gangnam Style”/On Korean pop artist, PSY and his phenomenal hit, ‘Gangnam Style’)
“But unlike countless western backpackers who have benefited from the omnipresent poster images of heartthrob George Clooney in Singapore or Shanghai and earned one-night stands with Asian girls from local bars, the popularity of the South Korean pop star is unlikely to prompt many Asian males to break through the glass ceiling in New York and London, except maybe with Hollywood producers being tempted to replace Jackie Chan in the next installment of ‘Rush Hour.’ The new YouTube pop emperor is robust and noisy rather than sneaky and reticent, which is a big plus, but he is a bit too chubby to be called sexy. You don’t have to hide your eyes behind a pair of sunglasses forever if you’ve got a pair of eyes like Justin Beiber’s. The global hype, however short-lived it could be, gives us Asian men enough face. So even I would seize the moment, and head to Lan Kwai Fong this weekend to try my luck.”
