Ah~ I thought I would do a post compilation of the Chulpan Khamatova TV serials that I’ve been able to find on YouTube. Starting with these two~ Children of the Arbat (Дети Арбата) and Pepel (Пепел). I’ve seen Pepel with Google translated subtitles, but I haven’t seen Arbat yet, as subtitles online are incomplete.

Here we go:

  1. Children of Arbat
  2. Doctor Zhivago – Доктор Живаго [review]
  3. Dostoevsky – Достоевский [review][español]
  4. Pepel

Han Hong brought out the big guns with the most perfect rendition of Heavenly Road (天路) [1] I’ve seen her do. You know she means business when she pulls that song out, so she -of course- was crowned the winner of this season of I Am a Singer. Well, it was about time! LOL

I still wish she and Meav could collaborate in a song together.

I won’t lie to you- I searched for “Naked Beef” first, then for “Beef Naked” LOL

I had been using my wiz google skills to try to find some songs released circa mid early millennium (2000-2002), once that failed a couple of times, I went in deep into my disc backups. After some digging around through old-OLD really purani school files… which were mostly poorly labeled (Hey! I found a Psy and Jolin Tsai tracks with no names downloaded circa 2005), I found what I was looking for et more~

What’s rare and I might post?

  • Amanda Latona – Can’t Take it Back
  • Amanda Mumba – Everybody Doesn’t
  • Ano – 4 tracks of Fruits from the Tree
  • Marit Larsen & Marion Raven – Synger Kjente (or ten tracks off it)
  • Out of your Mouth – Music (Madonna Cover)
  • Tangleroot (20 tracks)
  • The Sunwater Diaries [1] (2 tracks)
  • Capitanes de Lata (the Gloria Maria Solaris children play)

so if any of those search words bring you here, let me know.

Anyway, down the rabbit hole of Amy’s memory lane that included pop, country, r&b, hard rock, metal, electro hip hop rock and what not~ I realized that I have Canadian years gap compared to many of my friends, knowing Canadians bands that had only-Canadian hits between 2003-2006. Out of your Mouth (above), GOB, Our Lady Peace, Billy Talent, Barlow [1] are some…

… and of course I remembered this video of Bif Naked. I knew she was ingrained in my mind because of Buffy, but this video for Tango Shoes and Bif Naked on a tank cruising through downtown Vancouver, Pender St. with spottings of Tinseltown and whatnot. Can’t get more Canadian than that. I remember seeing the video on Much.

Oh, man~ it does take me back.

It’s been 15 years, nothing has knocked Dancer in the Dark out of my #1 favorite movie. I hardly remember the Oscars ceremony (of any year), but Bjork’s Swan dress is a classic in the public consciousness. Her performance of I’ve Seen it All, though shorten for the ceremony, is still better than the would be mash-up with other songs from previous years. And if I’m not mistaken, this year’s performances were even more rushed… yet, the broadcast never seems to run on time.

I can’t wait to get Vulnicura in my hands.

This is my favorite shot of the lot~

You’d think Hi! Blitz (or any other blog) would post this, but I had to get this from Tabu’s Instagram.
