Ode To Flying Pig

Hong Kong, China

Ordinary Gweilo posts about the fact that the South China Morning Post did not run a review of the Rogers Waters concert last month but ran a letter to the editor complaining about the lack of a review.

The letter writer argued that a picture of the giant inflatable pig that was launched during the song "Sheep" would have made a great feature photo, since the new Chinese lunar year is the Year of the Pig.

While the SCMP's lack of a review shows its stodginess, the absence of a pig picture is understandable. Before the show, I spoke with the photographers from AFP and Getty, and they confirmed that, per industry standard, they were only being allowed to take photographs during the first three songs of the concert. "Sheep" was deep into the show, well after the news photographers would have been escorted out.

But not running a review of one of the few international acts to hit town? That's lame.
