Daily Chinese Proverb: Time is Right

Posted by Charlie @ Discovering Mandarin Tuesday, 8 September 2009 0 comments

The original meaning and use of this Chinese Proverb was probably more like 'a good time to go to war'.

tiān shí dìlì rén hé
The time is right
(geographical and social conditions are favorable)

Animation: Magic Cube and Ping-Pong

First found by the wonderful guys over at NEOCha. Beijing based Ray Lei (雷磊) animted this lovely and peculiar short. In a wonderful world, where everyone has rubiks cubes as heads, this animated short is fun.

Whilst you won't learn any Chinese through this video, it is a bit of fun, and has a great soundtrack written by by Li Xingyu (李星宇), a mix of 8 bit computer sounds and any of you familiar with Pink Floyd are in for a treat too.

I present to you Magic Cube & Ping Pong:

Border Project is another animation by Ray Lei which hosts a rather interesting take on urbanisation, I'll let you make up your own minds about it. Whilst quite a different style to Magic cubes above. It is interesting to see the animation that is coming out of the youth of China.
