US Campaign for Burma Screening of Burma Soldier
NEW YORK PREMIERE: BURMA SOLDIER at The Paley Center for Meida Followed by a Panel Discussion
Join us for an exciting event happening this week in New York City. The Paley Center for Media and the U.S. Campaign for Burma are hosting a screening of the new award-winning HBO film "Burma Soldier." The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Myo Myint, the subject of the film. The screening is on Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 6:30pm.
"Burma Soldier" tells the harrowing and unforgettable saga of a former Burmese soldier who risks everything to become a pro-democracy activist. Through the courageous story of Myo Myint, we learn how the ruling army in Burma keeps its citizens living in terror, demolishing any sign of dissent. Burma Soldier reveals the transformation of an oppressor into a committed activist, protesting against the system that he used to represent. Click here for trailer.

I'm author of History in a Year by the Conservative Voice aka History of the World in a Year by the Conservative Voice.
I'm the Conservative Voice.
I'm looking to make contact with those who might use my skill.
I have an m-audio mobile pre amp fed by the audiotechnica 2041sp condensor mic pack. Prior to 15/4/06, I'd used a Shure sm-58 that required a nuclear blast to register a sound or the internal mic of my aged imac, which has a penchance to recording my breathing. I also used a Griffin itrip, until the community convinced me it was not hiding my talent as well as the other mics.
I am a Writer and an occasional Math Teacher (Sir, what's the occasion?). I like to sing, having no instrumental talent (cannot even clap in time, and yes, I'm aware singing badly IS obnoxious).
I have performed the finale to Les Miserables before an audience of 500. I have also sung before a similar audience (students, parents) renditions of 'I Will' (Beatles), 'Mr Cairo' (Jon Vangelis) and 'I am Australian' (Seekers). Now I seek another profession because the audience hates me ..
