As finding episodes for this show isn’t that easy on Vimeo (try a search for “behind the barriers episode 2″ 2and you won’t find what you’re looking for) I decided to make a list of all the episodes so that I could easily view them when I found time. Hope this makes things easier for a few people.

This made me laugh… a lot :-P
“This film looks good, it’s about some Japanese guy who is in love with a younger girl.“, my friend Matthew said.
“Never heard of it.” I replied.
He showed me the trailer.
The music, the Japanese man… as soon as I saw him sitting at the cold, clinical kitchen table eating that salad I thought… “Murakami!”.
Then a second later the credits announce: “Based on the story by acclaimed novelist Haruki Murakami”. Haha! I couldn’t believe I spotted the style so easily given I wasn’t expecting it or hadn’t heard of a film based on his work… I haven’t been in a Murakami mood recently (by which I mean I haven’t indulged in any of his books) so he wasn’t on my mind. I suppose the theme is easy to spot though, as is common in many of Murakami’s books; lonely single Japanese male, penchant for simple, clean food (often pasta or a light salad), overly clean apartment… and so on.
I can’t wait to get a chance to watch it, but I only hope that it really will capture the magic of Murakami!

Wahhh, I’m so happy! I just came back from London (just over 2 hours drive away from my home) having gone down there with my younger brother… and dad(!) to see Sek Loso play @ The Garage. It was awesome!! The band played really well :D
Last year Sek formed a new band, with guys from the UK – currently it’s Eric on drums, Chris on bass, and Bonehead (ex-Oasis) on rhythm guitar. Let’s hope it stays that way! My brother knows Eric, so we met up with him, his dad, Chris, and Chris’s gf and mother before the set for a drink and a chat :)
Pre-set photo with Sek and my brother Josh. My pic was pants, so it’s remaining hidden :P
It was nice to see quite a few Thai people turn up, smiling away, the girls screaming as Sek came on :P A lot of farang turned up too – also nice to see! Represent!
Eric, the Loso drummer.
Chris, the Loso bassist.
The one and only, Seksan Sook Pimay
And more Sek
Video clip: Clicky click :)
It was Bonehead’s birthday, so they brought out a cake in the middle of the show and everyone sang happy birthday to him. They then played a cover of “Live Forever” (an old Oasis song) which was fantastic, running straight into a cover of “Voodoo Chile” by Jimi Hendrix. Awesome.
Video clip: Sek rocking out!
Bonehead, and Sek.
We love you Sek :P
After an hour, they finished their set, and bid us goodnight, but everyone started chanting “Loso! Loso! Loso!” wanting more. They came out and played 3 more songs :D
Oh did the girls whoop when he took his top off!
Video clip: Ahh, nice song which I forget the title to now!
Everyone started dancing when they played Som Sarn!
A Thai guy decided to play “poster guitar” in front of Sek on stage haha :D
