Happy Hooves...

Image
Well seen as we haven't had a circus themed blog in a while we though we would treat you to some Friday Circus themed fun in the form of these two happy hoofed elephants! Now we all know the basics about Elephants, their large, their mammals, they have a decent set of ears and they love classical music? We'd forgive you for not knowing the later as we have only just found this out ourselves through watching the below video!

This rather talented violinist was due to perform the Bach Concerto the Two Violins with the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra at the Circus World Museum in Baraboo in Wisconsin, United States when she decided perform her warm up for some rather unexpectedly appreciative recipients. The Elephants can be seen swaying along to Bach, proving that those ears didn't just evolve to help cool them down! These guys go a way to prove that even the most unlikely of people (and animals) may enjoy something once given the chance to partake in it. The same goes for our ci…

Our Anacondas might want some.....

You may or you may not have heard of Nicki Minaj, and you may or may not have heard of her new song Anaconda, which we can only presume is be named in lieu of her love of the significant serpent. Well Nicki's new song and more importantly the video were released to world this week to millions of eager fans, some of which include the Lady Boys of Bangkok, who love abit of Nicki on and off stage as our fans will know if they have seen this years show! Weeeeell her new song is certainly different, take a look below....
Did you watch it? Yes - that is a strange sample of Sir-Mix-Alot's classic I like Big Butts and yes rather ironically the video may as well have been called I Like Big Butts because it features a biblical amount of large buttocks. Not that the Bible has much mentions of butts, but if Nicki Minaj was the messiah it certainly would do. All these butts kind of take away from the song, which is different from her usually forte of catchy beats, memorable choruses and fa…

Oh how we love you narcissistic animals....

Seeing as it's Friday we have a special treat for aaaaalllll (used in the most ironic sense) blog readers out there! We here at the Lady Boys HQ love animals, big animals, small animals, medium animals, fictitious animals and especially vain animals, so what we have for you today is our round-up of the best animal selfies that we have collated from all over the weird and wonderful land of the Internet! This blog post was inspired by the selfie monkey which has been all over the news recently for his rather dashing self portrait taken with a stolen camera! Kim Kardashian aint got nothing on this prehensile picture prodigy!
First up we have what has to be the internet's favourite animal, the domestic cat....Now if you get all your factual information on the evolution of animals from Cravendale adverts as we do, you'll know that cat's have developed opposable thumbs and with these thumbs have apparently become quite self obsessed. Evidence of which is below (the bottom o…

Ed Fringe and it's art infused oddities....

Image
Tis that time of year again....time to don your tartan and ingest some art infused oddities at this years Edinburgh Festival Fringe one of which includes us, The Lady Boys of Bangkok. Ed Fringe holds special place in our hearts as it was where we held the first production of our show 16 years ago; a show which is......lets face it is rather an odd mixture of fun, frolics and Lady Boys! It's kind of show that Edinburgh Fringe not only attracts, but also helps to promote and flourish as it's own entity and it's the incredibly warm reception we received from the audiences there all that time ago that spurred us on to still be performing to this day! So basically this blog is about all things Fringe this month as it takes over Edinburgh, in homage to the worlds largest arts festival.
The Fringe Festival started life in on the back of the Edinburgh International Festival in 1947, when 8 theatre companies turned up uninvited to perform shows in Edinburgh, taking advantage of lar…
