I want more McDull!

LOL’

I confess, I saw “McDull, the Alumni” because I saw a clip of Bibi, and thought it was hilarious. My first thoughts? To tell you the truth, the film is really really REALLY weird. Firstly because it starts out with some peeing contest bathroom humor – because it’s supposed to be a “double feature” but whatever~

If you actually skip that part, the film is better.

Then they tell you the story of George Washington, played by McDull and his mom. George Washington liked to chop stuff, so one day he chopped the soy chicken!!! Guilty he went to his mom and told her “Mah, I chopped the chicken.” His mother in return told him that what he had chopped wasn’t chicken, but duck. LOL ~ Turns out, McDull is a series… and this is what happens when you just watch the films. LOL

McDull, the Alumni is the third film in a series of McDull stories~~~ starting with My Life as a McDull, and followed by McDull Prince de la Bun. LOL But of the three, Alumni is the one that has to do less with McDull. Moreover, a 4th McDull film titled McDull, Kung Fu Kindergarten is set to open in Hong Kong in two weeks time (though apparently it already opened in Mainland China).

McDull… or Mak Dau (in Cantonese) is the main character. Mak Dau is a little pig with a dark spot on his right eye. On the day of his birth, his mother wished for him to be intelligent… no, no~~ a businessman – no, no~~ how about as handsome as Chow Yun Fat or Tony Leung? xD But in the end, she only wishes her son would be lucky in life.

So that’s how McDull starts the journey of a pretty unremarkable life. He’s not the most handsome, he’s not bright, but he gets by~~~ dreaming, trying, failing, and trying once again.

On Alumni, McDull does a crossover with real life, as the Spring Blossom Kindergarten is celebrating it’s almost 50th anniversary, in which they will be celebrating almost 50 years of educating almost 50 years worth of graduate students who have now become pillars of society.

ZOMG!
a la Juri! DVD + Photobook!

Mainland pop star Zhou Bichang (a.k.a. BiBi) turns movie director! Since signing with her new record company, the 2005 Super Girl first runner-up has directed three shorts that were first released on the Internet. They are now collected on DVD, allowing fans to witness her developing visual creativity and narrative flair. The first one, “Hide and Seek”, was highly popular in the 3rd Global Awards of Chinese New Media competition. BiBi plays an angel in the second chapter “Angel’s Corner”, which expresses her concern for various social issues, while the final piece “One Half Each Person” is more self-reflecting.The DVD comes with a 210-page full-color photobook, in which the bespectacled singer appears entirely without makeup. The book also includes photos she has taken around the world, as well as excerpts from her diaries written between April to December of 2008.

Ooh la! Short films~~~

Bibi Chow - Make Up Remover, Good to Be Myself

Too bad it’s not subbed. But still, would be interested to see it.
And it’s okay-priced. Would you consider? LOL

Teaser tease!
This gave me the chills, and it’s only the teasing part before the trailer. LOL

Looks abso-bloody-lutely fantastic~
We know the story… but it’s all about the vision,
and the Cheshire Cat looks freaky O.o

*EDIT*
damn, will get back to you when they re-post this.

*EDIT*
Disney’s finally letting the teaser do its magic again. =D

I love dinosaurs! LOL

I don’t really buy fashion magazines though… xD

but their photoshoots are very pretty. =D Yay for pretty photos!
not all photoshoots though, some are rubbish…
but Fashiontography is nifty! See more Fashion and Photos!

There’s an interesting article on the DailyMail.co.uk with former Marie Claire editor Liz Jones talking about why she’s fallen out of love with the mags she once loved.

Here’s an interesting excerpt;

Take the shoot in Kerala, India, in the June issue of British Vogue: in a region where most people live on less than $1 a day, there is Daria Werbowy in a £3,690 cotton dress by Yohji Yamamoto and a silk/linen ballgown by Ralph Lauren costing £9,500 – the little children used as obscene accessories.

Even the more downmarket, mainstream magazines relentlessly push clothes very few of their readers could afford. In Grazia is a silk dress by Gucci costing £3,600, and a few pages later we find the most ridiculous garment of all: a red snakeskin-trimmed jacket by Louis Vuitton costing £7,400.

Though Yohji Yamamoto is pretty crazy awesome. LOL’

Anyway, you can read the whole thing here.
Really, do read it… here’s another quote to get you interested!

I spoke to one beauty director of a big British glossy, and she told me that she can ‘never be critical of any of the big brands. You can say that my job is, really, to write press releases for them. Only tiny, boutique brands with no advertising budget would ever be given a bad review in my pages.’

And this is why independent rules. LOL’
