All through the Red Shirt Protest, people were saying (myself included) "that would never happen in a western city"...refering to the length of time and scope of the protest itself and the destruction and disruption it caused......"those guys would have shot long ago..." etc etc etc.
Well, today, I went for my daily survey of the roads.....Rama 4, through Silom, and on too Siam/Central World......what did I see? 100's...no....1000's of volunteers on their hands knees scrubbing away the fire and
It's 2am and I'm watching the news BBC.
I was getting all riled up listening to that numbnut reporter make it sound like the Thai army was randomly killing puppies, followed by the presenter's interview with the Thai ambassador to the USA.....she desperately wanted paint a picture that was sensational, but K. Don whatshisname wasn't falling for it.....I was thinking; "Ah crap! these assholes have got me all riled up with their narrow armchair opinions being flogged off as news" and then she ask
Have you seen this?
Hero spoof movie meets Tarantino!
I totally got a kick out of this movie.....the "Hit Girl" action was some of the best action sequences I have ever seen. This kid Chloe Grace is going to be huge HUGE friggin star! Kinda like you knew Nathalie Portman in The Porfessional (Leon) was gonna be big....this kid is going to be SUPER BIG!
Was watching "The Spy Next Door"....and at some random point, I hear a female voice say "Imagine".....and this reminds me....there have been two or three other movies in recent times when the same thing happens....cannot recall the other movies. Just a random insertion of the word "Imagine"
Anyone else heard this or know anything about it? FYI: quite possibly the worst Jackie Chan movie ever made...shame on him!

Almost the same time I was posting a comment in the Santica forum...another fire broke out in Bangkok. This time Rawhide in Soi Cowboi has been gutted. (I live on Soi 10, and heard the sirens, and saw the smoke, so I ran over to have a look). Luckily, no-one was hurt, but the bar, which has been undergoing renovations for the last little while, has been gutted.What the hell is going on?
Inspired by Peemarc's entry, I too have an investment opportunity to discuss:
As you may or may not know, I have been working on raising capital for a new, live music F&B venue, here in Bangkok. I have a great concept, a very solid marketing plan, and an extremely good location. The project has a budgeted need of 16million baht, of which I have already secured 10million. Investors are expected to receive 100% return within 18 months of opening the doors. After that, projections are 80 - 1
I'm trying desperately to set a static IP address and port forwarding so my Utorrent client will work properly. I have already tried, in vain, to follow the instructions on a number of blogs found on the internet.
f*cking hell!if anyone in Bangkok wouldn't mind trying to talk me through this on the phone, send me a PM. there'll be food and booze available for your trouble!

you self-important spoiled little ungrateful prat. Next time you get the urge to preach some hollier-than-thou my-****-don't-stink bullshit...pause...and ask yourself, "Am I really as spot on as I think I am, or am I delusional, and have some ego-centric fixation on my beautiful self?" with friends like that, who needs enemas?
How pissed off am I? I am so pissed off, I actually find myself struggling to find the right words. And I realize some may think this a bad move, or bad publicity...but I figure if I am going to, inevitably, be bad-mouthed behind my back, but one pissy ex-friend, I should address the issue here, for all to see. Yes, I had said I would open a bottle tonight. I didn't. I also thought I might actually have the time to sit down and enjoy at least one round of drinks. I grabbed my first of the night,
