Hello all! Sorry I have not been around much, but I have been focusing on other things in my life. Piett, sorry to hear about your band, but if it is for the best then you made the right move. YanÃ©, great pictures. I Failed to Make it Legal, you are very right about how polite everyone is here. That was why I chose this thread to start posting in. Sorry about the problems you had with your other user name. Happy birthday Arsinoe!! This weekend I went to see a movie that made me think about TPM and the royal five. The moive was called The Emperor and the Assassin. I don't know how widely the film is showing (it is only in one theater here in Portland), but if you can, go to see the film. It is almost three hours long, but is great. It takes place in ancient China, around 223 BC (about the time of Alexander the Great). The Cinematography is Beautiful and the costumes are magnificent (hence the conection to TPM, since so many of the Queen's costumes were based on Imperial Chinese costumes.) The movie also showed some very strong female characters, a Chinese noble woman and a fourteen year old blind girl. The story is about the Chinese King who united all of China under his rule and became Emperor. It is based on historical characters and events. If you have the oportunity go see this film!
