        I'm looking for full versions of the traditional Taiwanese
        songs like the ones above. Where can I find them?
        \_ There are lots of free Minan songs from mainland China here,
           so you'll see simplified characters:
  (children's songs)
           By the way why do people say Taiwanese when it didn't
           originate from Taiwan?
           \_ related question, how come some of the old Taiwanese songs
              sound just like Japanese songs?
              \_ because pro-independent minded Taiwanese for some reason
                 admires Japan and missed the day of brutal Japanese
              \_ because taiwan had been a japanese colony, and many older
                 taiwanese were japanese educated.
                 \_ there is more than that.  A lot of my friends' parents
                    grand parents were Japanese educated too in Manchuria
                    but they *HATE* Japanese to a point that they don't mind
                    to start another war to settle the old score.
                    \_ Manchuria was different.  Japanese was much more
                       brutal there especially given that guerilla
                       resistance was rampant in Manchuria.  Also, Japanese
                    \_ Manchuria was different.  Japanse ruled Taiwan for
                       a much longer time under more peaceful conditions.

                       especially given that guerilla resistance was
                       rampant there.  Also, Japanese
                       rule of Manchuria was never secure, even after 1931.
                       You may ask, why is there less resistance in Taiwan.
                       Well, cause Qing China gave the island away, while
                       KMT and CCP never officially gave up on Manchuria,
                       even though the initial conventional resistance
                       even though the initial conventional resistance (1931)
                       even though the initial conventional resistance in 1931
                       was rather pathetic.  Also, there were plenty of
                       people in Manchuria who collaborated with the
                       Japanese.  My mom's side is from Manchuria, so I would
                       love to believe that Dong Bei Ren (people from
                       love to believe that Dong Bei Ren (i.e. people from
                       Manchuria) were all red-blooded patriots, but that's
                       not really true, unfortunately.
                       not really true if you study history.
                       \_ First of all, Japanese killed more than 600,000
                          Taiwanese during the 50 years of occupation (out of
                          total population of less than 3 million)
                          I wouldn't consider that a "peaceful occupation."
                          Secondly, Qing didn't "give it away."  Qing only gave
                          up after *ALL* its navy vessels and half of its army
                          got annihilated.   These are two facts that
                          Taiwanese love to ignore in order to justify its
                          independent agenda.
           \_ because they need an excuse to justify their reason for
              taking lands away from the aborigines and impose discrimentory
              immigration and birth policies toward others.
              \_ so you're ready to give up your house, apartment, etc to the
                 tribe that once lived on it?
                 \_ If you don't care about compensate aborigines for land
                    grabbing and genocide, then, stop crying faul for
                    228 incident.
                    \_ Taiwan government already paid compensation for
                       families of 228 victims a few years back.  When will
                       commie PRC pay families of Tiananmen victims?

                          1932?  Did French ever compensate to the Algerian
                          Revolution?  give me a fucking break

                       \_ I think the poster who asked "why do people say
                          Taiwanese ..." was referring to the dialect, not the
                          \_ the dialect is called "Ming Nan."  If you want to
                             be specific, the dialect is actually coming from
                             the city of XiaMen.  Remember there is a
                             significant percentage of Hekka population who
                             is been in Taiwan as long as rest of the Ming Nan
                             fractions. To say Ming Nan is "taiwanese" implies
                             those Hekka and abroginies are not.
        \_ Try, they have a bunch of CD's from asia.  I can't
           read Chinese, but searching on "taiwan" finds a bunch of CDs
           and/or artists.  You can also search in Chinese. -oj

Now he invites every body to a second serving of his unique-style melodies on Heroes of the W orld. The all-round talent expressed that he got the inspiration to his special hip hop mix of stylish R&B with Peking opera elements for his best-sell ing album Shangri-la when he watched the silver screen drama Farewell My Concubine (starring the late great Lesley Cheung). This time the tradit ion of the Chinese opera can not only be heard via Lee Hom's specific vo cal treatment and compositions, but also through the adapted outfit that adds even more eastern flavor to his highly anticipated new tunes!

Louis Koo In competition in the Cannes Film Festival and receiving as many as 11 no minations in the Taiwan Golden Horse awards, Election is indeed the best Hong Kong triad movie in 2005. Johnnie To offers a very different take on the Hong Kong triad genre in E lection. Simon Yam Tat Wah and Tony Leung Ka Fai portray two triad leade rs who struggle with each other to head the Wo Sing Society. The film ne ver romanticizes triad leaders as heroes (like the Young and Dangerous s eries), nor condemns them as criminals, but offers an extremely realisti c portrayal of gangsters as human beings. Apart from the two superstars Simon Yam and Tony Leung as potential Chairpersons Big D and Lok respect ively, the film also has Louis Koo playing the young, brilliant, and col lege-educated rising star in the triad. Veteran Wong Tin Lam is the infl uential senior triad member Uncle Teng. Well-experienced actors includin g Nick Cheung, Eddie Cheung, Lam Suet, and Gordon Lam, who has excelled in many other Johnnie To movies, vividly portray other gangsters in the film, and Maggie Shiu is Tony Leung's wife.
