八和/阿姐/Savannah

有關這個題目,討論的人很多,但理性和值得一看的──就我讀過的小部份而言,──沒有。
直到Joe Chan也寫了一篇(明日見報/博):

市場價值定勝負 北九栽決合理

"據稱,SCAD將斥資一億五千萬來改建場地,這亦表明SCAD預期收入高於這個數字。八和會館不論怎麼樣加碼,效果亦不會相同。
...

不論八和會館投資多少,它都是從供應那方面著手,難以反映需求。我們只可以在一些剛剛過時的主流學術討論中,找到「供應帶來需求」這個謬論。在現實世界中,永遠是需求帶動供應,SCAD投資巨額,純粹是預期中的需求驅使它這樣做。因此,八和會館的投資不能與商業機構的投資相比。"

都說認識了Joe Chan是一個curse
和他相比,大部份男人都有點乏味。

I think Joe Chan has you to thank for in recommending his articles in your blog as it has become the only time I read his blog. Mind you the excerpt you quoted here is insightful. It is just that I can't seem to get myself to enjoy reading his articles regularly. Not my cup of tea.

Now, try to compare the men you meet to Joe Chan may be quite unfair. And I think it is an unbreakable curse if you want it to be.

Got me thinking about what you wrote,

"記得Joe Chan帶我們在Mukesh的店子裏選購山吐許時,他忽然對Mukesh說:「This is a curse。這兩個女孩子這麼年輕就見識過最好的東西,將來還有什麼看得上眼?」"

Joe may be right but I suspect Joe might have been too "fatherly" and simply couldn't foresee these two little young girls may one day grow up to appreciate life as simply a sequence of "best"s. There are time and places for different things and different quality of "stuff". Finally, one day they may realize "stuff" is just material "stuff" after all and "stuff" may not have much to do with the pursuit of happiness.

P.S. "和他相比,大部份男人都有點乏味。" I think it may be more fulfilling to try to find interesting things from each man or each person we meet.

今時今日咁時勢,等閒麻甩保得住兩口粥水都算喇,將就下啦~

陳講師講得你哋無錯...嘿~

*我都享受過 second-best、third-best 之類0架;宜家咪又係要明白,好多嘢唔係 the worst 就算0架喇。

哈哈,其實是我本人太乏味,才會物以類聚罷了。

你想找理性討論, 四個字: 緣木求魚. 為什麼呢? 北九裁判正是理性--是你與我及香港人所認識的唯一一種理性, 就是叢林資本主義--的裁判.

香港人對這種理性耳熟能詳, 而且正深受其害, 誰不知委員會沒有逾越規則? 現在要批評的, 正正就是為什麼要"高舉"這種"理性"的標準?

根本是忍無可忍.

理性的荒謬往往被強調"某一種理性"的人無視, 除了訴諸理性的對立面, 也就是感性以外, 沒有其他方法.

八和除了高舉本土藝術發展的旗織外, 粵劇界一盆散沙,有系統的學術成分不高(粵劇本來是很有文化,但卻沒有一套很有系統的教育系統, 粵劇行裏受過高深教育程度的人有幾個?)就八和會館可以成就一家有規模的粵劇培訓中心, 讓年青一輩繼往開來?這次正好讓香港演藝界知道我們與國際級的藝術學院相比相差多遠。現在政府有資助大學的粵劇研究, 看來等這班研究人士羽翼豐盛之時, 粵劇界才可有望把此藝術納入正統,脫離“老人家纔有興趣的消閒玩意“。

SCAD也不用政府資助, 就現在的環境來看,政府這決定比當年搞迪士尼高明的多。

對於供應與需求的問題. 因為以前唸過marketing, 這世上的確有供應帶動需求的, 就是新產品,例如未有電腦前發明電腦, 未有高跟鞋時發明高跟鞋.
企業家的其中一個目標就是create needs, 當然你可說這這供應與需求(S與D)在經濟圖表的概念上不同.
