About the documentary:“Into the Current” tells the story of Burma’s unsung heroes—its prisoners of conscience and the price they pay for speaking out the truth. The film follows former political prisoner Bo Gyi. Now living in exile just across the border in Thailand, his life remains bound to his 1,700 prisoner colleagues who are still behind bars. The documentary highlights the plight of Burma’s political prisoners and their efforts to free the country from dictatorship, through rare archival footage filmed by the Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) and historical scenes of Aung San Suu Kyi as the visionary leader of the country’s non-violent democracy movement.
Seating is limited. Please RSVP at info@Burma-Network.com by Friday, November 11th.

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 ..
