Les Miserable Curse on Humanity (Hathaway performs Fantine)

Video

The curse on humanity and dreams of happiness, love and safety dashed and the way the world is and hopes and dreams of a better place (Les Miserables is a very overt Christian sermon describing the biblical perspective of history and life for both men, women and children; a morality tale…most people miss that).

‘I Dreamed A Dream’ Anne Hathaway’s stunning spoken and sung performance of Fantine’s song, with the words. I consider this is one of the all-time great performances by an actress. STUNNING.

Real Kiwi Men Song (the Southern Man Beer Ads) #3

Video

The song set to some of the “Southern Men” Speight’s beer ads.

Manliness is not about beer drinking, but it lubricates the loins of masculinity. It’s odd that the marketing ploy of the beer company went with such a definatively anti-Auckland and anti-urban parochial take on manhood, but it was so compelling, that even Auckland Jafas bought and drank Speights beer because they wanted to be “hard southern men” an icon of New Zealand masculinity. It obviously worked.

This is one of the famous “Southern Men” Speight’s beer ads that brought us “good on ya mate,” “reckon,” and “She’s a hard road findin’ the perfect woman, boy!” Classic.
