FiKaLo’s YouTube Channel

September 1, 2010

Add me on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/fizuleika

My channel is a bizarre mixture of favourited news parodies, Christian and Australian rock music, Ukrainian folk dance videos and videos by my friends. I can’t say that I’ve uploaded any of my own works; I’m not sure I’m willing to put myself out there in such a confronting medium. Then again, the temptation is to create some videos on how to pronounce Aussie words in a Victorian rural accent, like “emu”, and place names like “Moe” and “Korumburra”.

emu = eeeem-you not eee-moo

Moe = mow-eee not moe

Korumburra = kuh-rum-buh-rrah not kor-rum-bor-ah

Flight of the Conchords Season 1, Episode 2

July 20, 2009

“Inner City Pressure”

Pet Shop Boys – “West End Girls (2003 Remaster)”

There’s a suspicious similarity between these clips…

I’m hooked on Flight of the Conchords. I used to watch them on Australian comedy tv shows, when they were playing them on free-to-air tv, anyway. Their songs regularly get played on Triple J radio, too. So, imagine my excitement a year or so ago, when I turned on the tv to find that FOTC had their own tv series! Hooray!

FOTC is rated M in Australia. (15 years +.)

More Batman!

August 13, 2008

Ok, I’m not usually one to rabbit on about movies and stuff, especially as I am not particularly into movies. However, I do have a few favourites and, finally seeing The Dark Knight last night I must say I was soooooo amazed!! It was awesome and I thought it was fantastic. Between that and Batman Begins, I have been convinced of the plausibility of the Batman story. I love the dark, moody Batman vibe. It does it for me way more than the 1990s plastic-feeling movies. (The early originals were pretty entertaining, though!!)

According to Wikipedia, the character Batman traces back to the late 1930s. Two-Face is from 1942, and the Joker 1940. Amazing how these modern movies have such a rich history in comic book lore!

Growing up in the 1990s, I regularly watched the Animated Series (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Batman:_The_Animated_Series), featuring Mark Hamill as the Joker! As life is, ideally, an amalgam of Star Wars and Batman, it seems a perfect match!

Anyway, I’ve rambled on enough. I’m sick, and I’m meant to be writing a uni assignment on Australian agriculture. Here’s some links, and every other reference can be found on Wikipedia.
