Pugwall was an Australian kids TV series from the late 80s/early 90s.  Based on the book of the same name by Margaret Clark, it was about a boy called Peter Unwin George Wall (played by Jason Torrens) whose nickname Pugwall came from each of the letters of his name. Pugwall lives with his parents and younger sister Marion (Emma Snow), nicknamed Marmaloid. His big dream is to be in a band and when he gets a guitar for his 13th birthday he forms the Orange Organics with his friends Orfo (Jay McCormack), Bazza (Troy Beckwith) and Stringbean (Ricky Fleming).

Pugwall is the guitarist and sings as well, Orfo plays the drums, Bazza the keyboard and Stringbean is the bass guitarist but they are missing one thing- a lead singer. Then Pugwall has a bike accident, which leads to him meeting Jenny (Rebecca Blomberg) in hospital, who turns out to the singer they're looking for.

The second series was called Pugwall's Summer. I remember watching this in the summer holidays. Pugwall's Summer is more familiar to me, maybe because it was a bit later and I was older. According to it was shown in the UK from 1992 to 1994, so I would have been about 10 when Pugwall's Summer was on. It looks really dated now but if they showed it on TV now, I'd watch it again! lol.

Here's the first series opening of Pugwall:

J Soul Brothers (Japanese boyband)

I don't know that many Japanese boybands. It's funny but I mostly know Korean groups and Japanese solo singers! I know KAT-TUN, Arashi (although they're more of a rock group, I think) and Hey! Say! JUMP but not many more. A friend recently introduced to me the band (or vocal and dance unit) J Soul Brothers, so I thought today I'd do a post about them. And of course it fits into the J-pop and K-pop theme I'm doing this month! This is a good opportunity to find more J-pop boybands too. :)

The J Soul Brothers were originally formed in 1998 but have gone through two line-up changes. The current incarnation- full title Sandaime (Third Generation) J Soul Brothers from EXILE TRIBE* or J Soul Brothers III- was formed in 2010 by HIRO who is the leader of Japanese boyband EXILE (which has an impressive 19 members!) and founding member of the First Generation J Soul Brothers.  It was decided that EXILE and former Nidaimie (Second Generation) J Soul Brothers members NAOTO and …

Dance Videos

It's time for another dance post! I thought I'd feature both modern dance and belly dance today. :)

First of all here are a couple of dance videos by choreographer Rumer Noel. This is one to Everyday by Ariana Grande that was uploaded in January. According to comments on YouTube the man dancing with Rumer at the beginning is called Lucas la Parada.

Dance Moms- Chloe Update

Series/Season 7 of American reality show Dance Moms is currently showing in the UK and I recently heard that one of the original dancers Chloe Lukasiak will be returning for the finale.

Chloe and her mum Christi weren't liked by the dance teacher and studio owner Abby Lee Miller and Christi often clashed with Abby. They left at the end of Series 4. Abby treated Chloe horribly in my opinion, once referring to her as "that girl over there" instead of her name. I always disliked the way Abby punishes the girls if she falls out with their mothers. Also Abby seemed to want to Chloe to fail in competitions, which was weird because she was one of her students representing her!! I think she just wants to be proven right a lot of the time. Chloe was my favourite out of the original girls (Chloe, Maddie, Nia, Mackenzie, Brooke  ans Paige, although Kendall joined quite early on) and I was glad for her when she finally left because she didn't have to put up with being treated li…
