Dibesh Pokharel, his youtube world, long before the Audition
Dibesh Pokharel aka Arthur Gunn who is making a round on social media for his performance on American Idol audition 2020, has actually been quite active on YouTube through his own channel for long and been publishing his works through the channel. But then, there are thousands of talented people yet less known. Dibesh Pokharel was one of the talents who was not that well known among Nepalese viewers and listeners until recently. However, as said above, he has been quite active on Youtube and spotify and you can check some of his songs that he has uploaded there and also an interview by Abhisek Mishra on a radio show during his Nepal visit in 2019.
Out of all his numbers, Nyano Ghar is our favourite so far. Nevertheless, miss not other songs from him available in his youtube channel.
It’s good to see that he got the attention he needed to pursue his music career in a style he is comfortable with.
Full Oscars speech of Joaquin Phoenix
Phoenix’s speech during his acceptance of Oscars award for Best Actor for his role in the movie Joker.
I’m full of so much gratitude now. I do not feel elevated above any of my fellow nominees or anyone in this room, because we share the same love – that’s the love of film. And this form of expression has given me the most extraordinary life. I don’t know where I’d be without it.
But I think the greatest gift that it’s given me, and many people in [this industry] is the opportunity to use our voice for the voiceless. I’ve been thinking about some of the distressing issues that we’ve been facing collectively.
I think at times we feel or are made to feel that we champion different causes. But for me, I see commonality. I think, whether we’re talking about gender inequality or racism or queer rights or indigenous rights or animal rights, we’re talking about the fight against injustice.
We’ve become very disconnected from the natural world. Many of us are guilty of an egocentric world view, and we believe that we’re the centre of the universe
We’re talking about the fight against the belief that one nation, one people, one race, one gender, one species, has the right to dominate, use and control another with impunity.
I think we’ve become very disconnected from the natural world. Many of us are guilty of an egocentric world view, and we believe that we’re the centre of the universe. We go into the natural world and we plunder it for its resources. We feel entitled to artificially inseminate a cow and steal her baby, even though her cries of anguish are unmistakeable. Then we take her milk that’s intended for her calf and we put it in our coffee and our cereal.
We fear the idea of personal change, because we think we need to sacrifice something; to give something up. But human beings at our best are so creative and inventive, and we can create, develop and implement systems of change that are beneficial to all sentient beings and the environment.
I have been a scoundrel all my life, I’ve been selfish. I’ve been cruel at times, hard to work with, and I’m grateful that so many of you in this room have given me a second chance. I think that’s when we’re at our best: when we support each other. Not when we cancel each other out for our past mistakes, but when we help each other to grow. When we educate each other; when we guide each other to redemption.
When he was 17, my brother [River] wrote this lyric. He said: “run to the rescue with love and peace will follow.”
Web Series: Just another love story (Ep 1)
The 13-minute long first episode of the web series that starts from a club scene and ends up in a bed scene with apparent desire and lust between two besties
Much-awaited web series starring Priyanka Karki and Shristi Shrestha is out now. The web series had already trickled curiosity among Netizens through its brilliant cinematography and teaser-like music video, Pahaar by Sajan Raj Vaidhya, and many had assumed that this must be worth-a-wait web series. Watching it, must say, expectation is met.
When Nepalese film artists and film makers are being criticized for being too dramatic and too lame on story line, “Just Another Love Story” has come to force think every critics to reconsider their broad generalization. Though, it’s a web series and only first episode is released, but looking at this one piece of puzzle itself, one can confidently say the story line is definitely brilliant.
And the acting? Don’t even ask. It is just fabulous. Both the actors, Priyanka and Shristi, have acted so brilliantly that it does not even feel like an acting and actually looks more like as if someone secretly filmed them. It’s so natural and just so real. These duos have set new benchmark for all.
However, there needs some improvement on lighting and sound and also subtitle could be made bit easy to read. Just a technical thing. Hope that will be taken care in coming episodes.
The 13-minute long first episode of the web series that starts from a club scene and ends up in a bed scene with apparent desire and lust between two besties is a very promising web series worth a wait for remaining episodes and see how things would unfold justifying it’s title and the buzz and applause it earned for everything.
All in all, it’s a bold acting, bold concept, and bold decision from the team involved, to come up with web series on homosexuality in a society where heterosexual love story itself struggles to fit in.
Just loved this, Just another love story.
