Recommended Posts

Welcome to the boards, AzuriTigerClaws--to go to a specific sub-forum, click on "Forums" just above "TCM Message Boards", & keep going down past the list of boards; sub-forums include "Musicals", , Pre-Code (before censors clamped down on film industry in 1934), and about 15-20 more.  This is a slow day because Olivia de Havilland is having a retrospective on TCM.  Explore and have fun.  Have a good day.

I am certainly not the designated welcoming committee head here, Ann but let me extend my most warm regards.

 

I think it shall be super to hear opinions and ideas from someone from outside the US of A, and anyone who loves musical theatre and films is a friend of mine.

 

Thanks for joining up!

Thanks CaveGirl. I'm Asian as well so you'll also be hearing opinions from someone who isn't White.

You is one crazy mixed-up kid.

 

You got that right!    I'm glad we do have someone from another country (Australia),  just like I'm glad there are many Canadians, like you here.   This brings in different perspectives and we need that.    Everyone can get tunnel vision if all they hear is an echo.

Are you saying that all us Americans have been expressing identical opinions all these years?  I somehow missed that.

Of course not.  I'm surprised by what looks like a defensive interpretation of the comment.

 

What I was getting at relates to movies;  e.g. the noir films TCM has been featuring.   These films are based on a specific American time period in American locations (cities) and reflecting mostly a post WWII American 'mood'.   So it would be interesting to me if non-Americans relate to these films.  Do they have the same impact, so to speak.   The same holds for westerns.

On another board, there is a discussion about BFI 100 films. And if you disagree with the American critics/views you are toast  :lol:

Swithin, you mean you did not use the "Tongue in Cheek" icon to telescope your jocular point?

 

Tsk tsk...for shame.

 

I don't know if I am Asian as I have not as yet had my DNA checked by that Ancestry.com site.

 

I've been seeing the ad where the guy who thought he was German just found out he was Irish instead and wondering if I could be Swedish/Viennese instead of Mesopotamian/Polish.

 

That Ancestry ad reminds me of the "Fawlty Towers" episode where Basil insults all the German guests with National Socialist references.

 

Uh, what were we talking about again? Oh yeah, welcome again to our new Asian-Australian guest!

I once ate at one of those fusion cuisine restaurants, Adolf Wong's German-Chinese Bistro situated on Wilshire just off La Brea.

 

Gotta say, the Sauerkraut Mu-Shu Shrimp was surprising tasty.

 

But unfortunately an hour after I paid the check and left, I again got hungry...but this time to invade Poland.

 

(...sorry for the lame joke here, Ann...welcome to the boards...and btw, if you stick around, you'll soon get used to these lame jokes of mine...well, at least almost everybody around here seems to have relented to accepting them anyway...well, except those who have me on their ignore function, anyway)

I think too much is made about this sort of thing.  There's a word for it that NOW when I need it, I can't THINK of it!  :angry:

 

Anyway....My "ethnic" and/or "nationality" make up is Polish, Russian and French.  Since my MOTHER is Polish and FRENCH CANADIAN, and my biological Father was POLISH and RUSSIAN, I often joke that the "double dose" of "Polack" makes me MORE Polish than the rest of it!  :P  

 

Some people center on one thing or another.  For example...when hearing of my "mix",   ask me..."You're FRENCH?"  to which I reply,

 

"Only PART French.  Which means I don't FIGHT WITH MY FEET!"  :lol:

 

And on the subject of cuisine, in Southwest Detroit, which in earlier times(like when MY family lived there) was a HUGE Polish community, and in the last 30 or more years has shifted to one on the country's largest LATINO communities, there was for a shor spell, a restaurant called "PEDRO WISNIEWSKI'S"  Offering "Polish/Latino cuisine"!  Closed down before I had a chance to check it out.

 

However, whenevr anybody asks me my "nationality", I reply that I'm an "American".

 

 

And welcome!

That's a shame.

 

(...I'll bet the Pierogi Rancheros were pretty good there)

I wonder when she says she is "from Australia" if that means she is now here in the states and has been for a while or if she is posting from Australia (as in she is living there now and has been all her life).       That would be different than a hyphen-American type thing.
