Six Wives Fanmix

Alas, the wonderful TV show The Tudors has come to an end! historical and inaccurate all at the same time, bit all in one: very entertaining and easy on the eyes (like, no ugly person on that show I swear) I found myself screwing around on my iPod and iTunes making a mix for Henry's infamous six wives to listen to. Each of them unique in their own way. Most of the songs are 'classical' but a wee bit of pop in there. The songs either represent the wives themselves and/or their thoughts towards Henry and vice versa. If all fails, its all good music I say!

Anna & The King Picspam (Part Two)

I got a few people asking in my last post why "Anna and The King" is banned in Thailand. It's a crazy long story, but pretty much the reason why its banned is that its considered inaccurate to Thai history and the royal family, King Mongkut is King Bhuminpol's great grandfather, Thailand's current reigning King, hence its the same dynasty (Chakri) so what's the big deal you ask? there's loads of historical movie's out there which are historically inaccurate, such as "The Other Boleyn Girl" and to be honest, I have no damn clue why. Beats me, check out Wiki for more details on Lèse majesté. Here and Here.

Back to our spam shall we?

Anna & The King Picspam (Part One)

Okay. I'm half Thai and a very proud one and this movie is about...well, Thailand back when it was Siam during the Victorian period and during Rama IV's (King Mongkut to the rest of the world) reign in Thai historical terms. Every version of Anna and The King is banned in Thailand. Only Anna's memoir is occasionally published in Thailand. I was lucky enough to see it on the aeroplane going to Canada back in 2000, my dad, who is Thai, refused to watch it and went to sleep. Mum and I, however enjoyed it, and I watched the cartoon musical while I was in Canada as well. Eight years later. I accidently come across it on a television, on our 'poached' African movie channel (I KNOW, SO FREAKING RANDOM) and fell in love with it again, it never aired again, as I'm pretty sure the Thai official's found out about it and cut the channel off...but who knows? the reception could of been bad? :/

I come to Australia and for my final assignment this semester at uni, it was a rather free for all, so I chose to write about what I knew best: Home. That is Thailand. And I decided to rent Anna and The King again just to watch and for the third time, fell in love with it. Now that I'm in Australia, I can buy it to own, I ordered it off Ebay and I'm awaiting for it to arrive. In the mean time I made this picspam of the entire movie. I have never made a picspam of an entire movie before, so I've split in to two parts. I'm posting the first part tonight then going to bed as its past one AM.

Enjoy!

Let Me In

Let The Right One In Fanmix

I saw "Let Me In" for my birthday and I pretty much loved it. I'm starting to read the book now, but its also the end of the semester at uni for me, so I haven't gotten very far. Anyways, when the holiday's do begin, I shall read it fully and savour it. I did how ever managed to make a fanmix while sitting on the bus on my way to uni, hehe. It's only eight tracks (I usually have ten tracks on my fanmixes) and it's half instrumental and half lyrical songs. I hope y'all like. Oh, and my yearly Halloween icon post is comin' up as well, those icons don't post themselves :P
