Well ZAPCULT is intended to be a record of the media consumption of it’s proprietor, that’s me, Woody Sabran. Whenever I watch a film, listen to a cd, read a book, or visit a site that I rate high enough to recommend to others I’ll record it here along with a short description and a famed ZAPCULT rating. If you see a piece of work here that you enjoyed too, give it your own rating and add your own comments.
If you see a film on this site, and you’ve an open mind, there’s a high chance you will enjoy a majority of the other films I’ve commented on. Same with the books and music. Hopefully contact with this site, for no matter how short a time, will lead you to make some media discoveries of your own, and in turn will lead me to make those discoveries too.

Found in China
This blog tells a story. It may be sometimes rather boring or silly, but still, you'll need to start with the very first blog posting in order to understand it all. Otherwise you'll be asking yourself "What in the heck do guppies have to do with a highly unusual military facility in the middle of China?" Like most blogs, the first posts are at the bottom, so scroll down a couple of meters / yards from here.
One evening in late June, a Californian living in Germany discovered a topographical terrain model in northwest China. The replica, set in arid desert in the Ningxia Autonomous Region, includes artificial snow peaks, glacial lakes and valleys. Its fenced area is huge, measuring nine football fields long and seven wide.
Posting under the user name KenGrok, the American alerted a Google Earth bulletin board to the find. At the urging of a moderator, KenGrok scoured China's border regions to see if the terrain model replicated any existing territory.
Sure enough, it did. About two weeks later, KenGrok matched the model to a portion of the Sino-Indian border, Aksai Chin, at the east end of the Karakorum Range some 1,500 miles to the southwest.
So why has China built a "sandbox" model of its sensitive border with India?
A lot of Google Earth users became curious, and KenGrok parlayed his discovery into a blog titled "Found in China" that reaped global attention.
KenGrok declined to give his real name and voiced wonder at the interest that his sighting has generated.
A McClatchy reporter traveled to the site and found an armored-tank base surrounding it, near the village of Luoxi in Yongning County. Visitors weren't allowed in. Asked the purpose of the terrain replica, an army guard said: "It's for all kinds of military training. You wouldn't understand it."
