King Of Mykonos - Wog Boy 2 is Fakan Gud lolol

Wog Boy, #2 in Greece


 The Kings of Mykonos: Wog Boy 2 has opened at #2 of the Greek box office.
Paramount Pictures reports that the film sold 43,000 tickets on 50 screens, behind Sex and the City 2 with 50,000 tickets on 100 screens. No euro figures were provided, and international box office sites have not yet updated their results fro Greece.
The film, which received financing from the Greek Film Centre and Greek distributor Odeon S.A., has made $4.1m in Australia since its release on May 20.

Greek-Australian actor/comedian Nick Giannopoulos, who shot to fame after the hit Aussie comedy The Wog Boy in 2000, not only took the stigma out of the derogatory nickname ‘Wog’, he subsequently made a prolific career out of it. Ten years after The Wog Boy became the 13th Australian film to ever to break $10 million mark at the local box office, Giannopoulos has done something that few Aussie filmmakers ever get the chance to; he’s made a sequel. Written, produced and starred in a sequel, to be more precise.
In The Kings of Mykonos: Wog Boy 2, Giannopoulos returns alongside Vince Colosimo as Steve and Frank, two Greek-Australians who leave Melbourne for the gorgeous Greek isle of Mykonos in order to claim an expensive family heirloom. Of course, recovering their inheritance isn’t as straightforward as it sounds, as Steve and Frank discover they’re not nearly as Greek as they originally thought they were.
Despite being involved in a heated interview with a local Adelaide radio station just prior to our interview, Giannopoulos was in good spirits as we sat down to talk about his new film, which hits cinemas across Australia on May 20th.

St. Nicholas and Demitrios Church Summer Festival 2010















The Vancouver Greek Summer Festival is an annual celebration of food, entertainment,and family fun -- from the famous "Roast Lamb" and "Loukoumades" (a specialty Greek dessert)to the dozens of live singers and dancers on the Performance Stage to face-painting for the children(and adults!).

The first Greek Summer Festival was held in 1987 as a small weekend event, attended mostly by members of the St. Nicholas & Dimitrios Church as a fundraiser for the church. Since then, the festival (now simply known as "Greek Fest") has grown to 10 days over two weekends, encompassing the Canada Day Holiday.
It is now attended by almost 40,000 people from all areas of the culturally diverse Lower Mainland, as well as many visitors from around the world.

Greek Fest has always been free to attend and is run entirely by volunteers. All proceeds go back to the community, whether to finish the church or to various charities and community organizations. In the past, Greek Fest has supported St. John Ambulance,Collingwood Neighborhood House, BC Children's Hospital, and the Vancouver Fire Fighters Burn Fund and the Make-A-Wish Foundation of BC and Yukon.

To help serve the members of the community better, the St. Nicholas & Dimitrios Church will be starting a multi-year,multi-million dollar project to build a Community Centre. This Community Centre will be home to a Greek Orthodox School, and will also include a gymnasium and meeting rooms for various after-school and sports activities and programs open to everyone.

Proceeds from Greek Fest over the next few years will be instrumental in bringing this project to fruition.

Join us from June 29th to July 11th 2010 to Live a Day the Greek Way!

Monastiri Taverna in Chania Crete

 The Venetian engineers spent two millenniums building and maintaining the beautiful harbour of Chania. They would calculate the air and the sun's position and build the harbour piece by piece always knowing its potential. The Monastiri is a taverna which has adjusted to the heart of this tradition. The traditional cuisine in conjunction with a charming sunset, good wine accompanied by the soft sound of the waves, and the friendly service, make Taverna Monastiri one of Chania's top choices of dining - both in the afternoon and in the evening. It is a must to try all the house specialties and the very original cakes.

Konyali / Konialis Greek Turkish shared musics - TY romeikos2



The famous Turkish song Konyali is very well known throughout Greece. Naturally it was already sung and danced by the Greeks of Anatolia- Karamanlis, Cappadocians Pontians and others. A version with Greek lyrics was first recorded by Roza Eskenazi in the 1930s. the tune was known also throughout Thrace and was danced as either a free style "Koutsos" or as a "Laisios" - a game dance imitating a hunter, rabbit and dog. In Konya itself and in Central Anatolia it is most often danced playing spoons "Kasik Havasi" or as a Kocek/Kiotsetsi

Anatolitika/Oriental - Greek Urban Music from Smyrna



The sub genre of "Anatolitika" or "Oriental" in Greek urban song touches the areas of rebetika, smyrneika and light theatre tunes (epitheorasis). Usually a Greek orientalist view of the "East" of pashas, maharajahs, harems and sultry females, musically it is a melange of east and west with elements of Greek Turkish and Arabic music with often strong Latin influences and a Hollywood feel. These songs, starting with a few examples in the 20s and 30s (Miserlou being one of the early examples - see my Misirlou upload), became very popular in the late 40s and 50s.
