I was sitting here, with nothing particular to do, and I came accross a video of Mr Kevin Spacy.I remembered that in previous months, I have posted a journal of him impersonating famous actors on a show called 'Inside the Actors Studio'.So. We all know he is one of the best Actors, and then we all knew that he is a teriffic impersonator.Here is a reminder of the original video.
Now, if that wasn't enough talent, the bastard can sing perfectly as well!!!And here he is....Kevin Spacy as Mr Bobb
An Australian traveller raised eyebrows and the suspicions of customs officers after he was found with two live pigeons and an aubergine down his pants.Customs officials said the 23-year-old man was caught at Melbourne Airport (Australia) following a trip to the Middle East.Officials searched the man after they discovered two eggs hidden in a vitamin container in his luggage. .Customs Service national investigations manager Richard Janeczko said the pigeons were found wrapped in padded envelopes
It was less than a Great Escape.Two New Zealand prisoners who were handcuffed together as they fled a courthouse foiled their own getaway when they ran to opposite sides of a lamp-post, slammed into each other and fell to the ground.Jailers nabbed them as they struggled to their feet. Their escapade on Wednesday was captured by a CCTV camera at Hastings District Court on New Zealand's North Island. The footage shows the two men trying to make a break for it - but apparently forgetting they were
Quite an amazing thing happened this week. First, a bit of history.When I was 16, I joined my first ever Band as the keyboard player. They were all quite a bit older than me, with the band leader being 40 at the time. The first contract I ever did with them was on a 'Warners' Holiday Center in Cornwall, South West England which was a 6 month contract.We were the resident band, playing 6 nights per week, plus each night we would have a guest caberet act.Every Saturday for the 6 months, a Guy call
Today, Fred, aka Papa, or whatever else you normally call him (better not mention too many nicknames here!!), became Number 1 in the all time vote rankings.It's nice to see, and I think it is well deserved as he is one of the most active members on the site with both input in forums, great and well thought out journals, and a regular atendee at TF gatherings.Congratulations mate, 100k just around the corner...WHO is it gonna be, and more to the point, how many cases of beer are you giving for th
It's been a long time since I posted and music journals on here. Today, I have been truely blessed to learn of some fantastic music. I have of course heard the music before, but maybe it was in a pub, restaurant, LIFT, and I never got to know the name / artist so could never find it again.Earlier today I noticed that someone on my msn list had 'Adagio for strings' as their current song. 'Adagio for strings' sounds very classical, and as she is only about 23 years old, I became curious. I looked
It doesn't seem possible, but it is a year since we had a great party in Absolute to celebrate Rene's Birthday.Shame you cannot be here this year, Rene, and we all hope your health is getting better.Happy Birthday!!!http://www.thailandfriends.com/Igasoq
Shaken and scared passengers queue on the wings of a jet after it made an emergency landing in New York’s Hudson River yesterday.A fleet of small boats and commuter ferries rushed to the Airbus 320, which was brought down by a bird-strike on both engines.
The five-strong crew guided their 150 passengers through flooding emergency exits and on to the wings. Some wore lifejackets, others picked up buoyancy equipment thrown from boats. Amazingly, no one was badly hurt.

Dr_Mike has posted another event at the same place in January, go along,
I'd like to make an apology to all involved for not being able to make it to Baan Kru Noi on Sunday, especially as the event was posted by me!!!As some of you know I have been pretty bloody sick for almost a month now. I just started to get better towards the end of next week, and then it all came back again.I have this violent cough which is keeping me awake 24/7, and I am so exhausted at the moment.I am trying to take it easy and get myself fixed up in time for next week, as a few of us are of

This is a story in one of todays newspapers from the UK. I know a forum was posted on this topic yesterday, but it's easier to post the photo's here.Thoughts? These shocking photographs show the moment tragic Craig Ewert draws his last breath after he opted for assisted suicide rather than spend the rest of his 'short' life locked in a 'living tomb.'
Retired university professor Craig, 59, who suffered from motor neurone disease (MND), was filmed as he passed away comforted by his wife at a
I have a Kenwood stack home cinema system which cost me a small fortune a few years ago, and which I love dearly.
Sadly, during several moves, all the leads got lost.
Kenwood have discontinued the product, and no longer have the leads in stock.
I have scoured the internet but to no avail.
I just can NOT bring myself to throw it away.
Does anyone know of a specialised shop who deals in Hifi;s, stero's, sound systems, and who could probably make up the leads?
Thanks in advance.

Some Australian Guy has just done a little job for me. I've never actually met him, but was put in touch with him. We have only ever communicated over the phone and by sms.I sent him an sms today, and asked if the work had been completed, and he replied 'Tomorrow'.A couple of hours later, my phone rang, and it was him.Here's how the conversation went:Stuart: Hello?Him: Hey, I am so sorry I could not call you back earlier, i was a bit tied up. Great to talk with you.Stuart: Yeah, good to hear
