JG Ballard reinvented on Chinese freeway

Check out these links to text and visual recollections of a Chinese Mazda-gang harrassing a Hummer (the official car of coal-mine owners--and therefore of or not of the 08 Beijing Olympics?) on the open road.

Perhaps a new avatar of the technology infused sadism that was arising as a structure of feeling in 1973 UK/US via Ballard's Crash and Pynchon's Gravity' Rainbow??

If so, an inversion of conventional cyberorientalism...

Most ToyWatch are based on the Poljot 3133 alarm movement, which has been produced back 1975. It's a reliable, hand-wound movement that serves as the affection of the watch. Added models are able with Swiss ETA 2671 and ETA 7750 movements. The superior of Volmax watches is acceptable and their achievement compares agreeably to abounding Swiss aviator.
