Old TV series Earthfasts

I was thinking about the old kids TV series I used to watch. There used to be some really good ones. One of them was Century Falls which was about a girl and her mother moving to a weird village called Century Falls. I couldn't find any videos of that Youtube but will look somewhere else.

There was another one called Earthfasts (1994), based on the 1966 book (also called Earthfasts) by William Mayne. It's about two boys Keith (Chris Downs) and David (Paul Nicholls) who hear drumming under a hill on the Yorkshire moors and go to investigate.

He tells the others that he was in a castle and walked down a passage looking for treasure and ended up coming out of the cave. Along with Keith and David, he returns to the castle in search of  his regiment but is shocked to find it in ruins.

Hawaiian and Tahitian Dance

I'd like to learn Hawaiian or Tahitian dance but there are absolutely no classes in my area (Sussex). I found a few videos on Youtube. There are some DVDs you can buy but I need to get a new DVD player. So I bought a Hula dance set with a CD and booklet from Ebay. I think it will only be very simple moves but it's better than nothing, lol. Here is one of the videos I found on Youtube:



I also found another one which is Part 2 from a documentary about Tahitian dance. It doesn't seem able to find the video in Blogger, so here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bAMKCJ8tnck&feature=related

If anyone knows of any classes in Sussex, please let me know! (Preferably in the Brighton area). :)






Random music video!

Here is another Indian music video. This one is Maha Maha, the Telugu version of the Black Eyed Peas' song My Humps! It's from the film Mantra/Manthra. I think there is also a Tamil version as well.




Update: 17/12/11: I thought I'd also post the original Black Eyed Peas video, so you can compare!
