Pop China blog

Rene Patnode of the How They Got Game group is currently teaching in Harbin, China. As he gears up for a return to the U.S. and the life of a graduate student, he has started up a weblog that reflects his current research and interests in Chinese media and popular culture. It's called Pop China. In addition to a variety of topics ranging from game-advertising crossover to movies and globalization, also have a look at Rene's paper on the connection between PK ("Player Kill") and the Chinese-American American Idol-clone Super Girls here.
