According to Harvard University's "Real-Time Testing of Internet Filtering in China" search engine The REG Temple is currently accessible to the people of China. Yes, richard-e-grant.com is one of the sites allowed through the "Great Fire Wall of China" but the old REG Temple (at Grumpyfish.com) is still in doubt and noted as "probably inaccessible".
So while it might be difficult for those in China to get any "real" news outside of China (almost all news services are banned as well as many mail services such as Yahoo and Hotmail, search engines like Google and ALL sex related websites), it's still possible for REG's Chinese fans to get their daily "fix".
Do it while you can though! Who know's what's around the corner?
"It has to be Evian The elixir"
So said REG to a UK Vogue Magazine reporter back in 1995. To read more about the statement click here. Thanks to Jolie for sourcing this one out.
For Australian Regimentals:- According to Maureen, "Let Them Eat Cake" is available at ABC shops at the moment. Richard appears in the third episode for only a few minutes but well worth buying for French and Saunders anyway. He is pretty gorgeous and as usual shows good comedy timing.
And for U.K. fans, REG can currently be heard on television doing the voiceover for Nivea for Men, and The Scarlet Pimpernel has been released as a 3 DVD set exclusive to Woolworths. The set contains the first 3 episodes only. Thanks to Denise and Nikki for the U.K. news.
For those in the U.S. Debbie informs me that Twelfth Night is showing on IFC Friday, December 6th at 8:15 am and 2:15 pm (CST). Ready To Wear (Pret A Porter) is also showing on several HBO stations in the first week of December.
