80s Was Number 1 For Music

The 1980s is still the most popular music decade of the past 40 years, according to a survey.

A survey by digital music broadcaster Music Choice found almost one in three people prefer to sing along to music from the era of synthetic pop.

The 80s beat the music of the 1990s to the top spot as well as that from the 1970s which came third.
The decade also saw one of the biggest aid relief concerts of all time, Live Aid, which was voted the most important music event of the past 30 years.
It is unsurprising then there has been the reformation of famous 1980s bands such as Spandau BalletDuran Duranand the Pet Shop Boys.
The relevance of the 80s can also still be seen as the motivation of many modern music artists such as Lady Gaga.
Her performance at The Brits highlighted her style and sound inspiration from such cult legends as Madonna and David Bowie.
The popularity of 80s tunes is also reflected in a list of songs requested for the first dance at weddings.
While the 1973 hit You Are The Sunshine of My Life by Stevie Wonder took out the number one spot, Van Morrison's 1989 song Have I Told You Lately came in at second place.
It was followed soon after by the 1981 ballad Endless Love byLionel Richie and Diana Ross at number four.

World's Best Party Spots - Vang Vieng, Laos

What used to be just a few streets and a bus stop has morphed into one crazy party town complete with late island booze and dancing, whacked out natural drugs and enormous rope swings into a raging river.

A huge attractionin this town is grabbing your mates and big plastic tubes and go floating down the river with  amazing scenery and, perhaps more importantly, six bars chock full of hotties lining the river banks. Bar staff literally pull you in as you hold on to a stick of bamboo.  I borrowed the impromptu “Pump Stick” and fished out a few females for my friends . . .and two for myself!  “Ladies, grab the stick and pull . . . NO LADIES! THE STICK THE STICK!”

There is no shortage of free Laos whiskey floating around that river – Sheesh! Beerlao, the only beer available in the country, is a decent drop and a couple of huge bottles are essential when you get back in the tube for another float to the next drinking station – You heard of “Road Beers” -now we have RIVER BEERS!.

Rope swings and beach volleyball ensure all the kiddies are having half-naked fun, in the sun and when the sun goes down so do the girls . I mean – the party just gets even heavier (like my dates when I drink).

An island of bars with lights, DJ’s and bonfires start up every night and draw the young crowd out from every hotel. If you want to sit back and chill try asking for the ‘happy menu’ at any of the local restaurants.  Suffice to stay there is something very funny about the happy menu cocktails and snacks,  and I assure you that you won’t find a better price for a “Mushroom Shake” or “Opium Tea” on the planet (well maybe Afghanistan but those burkas as so itchy during making out.

Be warned, with the fun you get at these prices, a lot of people fall in love with the party town and never want to leave.

An accident at the Olympics

A riddle for Geoff cause he's tried both and he has the vid to prove it!!!!!

A riddle:
At the exact same time, there are two 35-year-old men on opposite sides of the earth.
One is walking a tight rope between two skyscrapers at the 85th floor.
The other is getting oral sex from an 85-year-old toothless woman.
They are both thinking the exact same thing...
What are they both thinking?

New requirements to enter Thailand

All passengers arriving in Thailand must have sufficient funds before entry is permitted, the Immigration Department says. New requirements are:

Transit Visa holder:
Must hold minimum THB 10,000 per passenger or THB 20,000 per family.

Tourist Visa holder:
Must hold minimum THB 20,000 per passenger or THB 40,000 per family.

Visa on Arrival:
Must hold minimum THB 10,000 per passenger or THB 20,000 per family.

Non Immigrant Visa holder:
Must hold minimum THB 20,000 per passenger or THB 40,000 per family.

Via Pattaya News Flash

I find the requirement for the Non Immigrant Visa Holder to be surprising to say the least. To get a Non Immigrant Visa you have to show that you have sufficient funds to support yourself so why do you need to show you are cashed up every time you arrive at the border. Not understanding but I will of course comply.

Tiger Woods

Tiger Woods holds a press conference for the world cause he got caught cheating. Amazing. Do people really care that much? The best bit of the conference was the shot of his mother and mother-in-law, (I think), sitting on the front row with rolling pins. Hope the papparzzi got a shot of that for the morning papers.

Now if George Bush or Tony Blair want to apologise then I'm all ears but a top golfer for infidelity, they're having a lark surely. Before anybody says, "well you watched it", my answer is it was difficult not to with the coverage it received.

What I did get from the P.C. was the feeling that Woods truly believes he is special. Obviously not been in the real world for a while.  
One final comment. He'd over rehearsed. It came across as a performance rather than something he truly felt, something from his heart. His contrition and anger were false. Maybe it's difficult to be sincere in a pantomime.

Fast Track Service at Suvarnabhumi Airport

Want to get through an airport like a V.I.P.? Want an extra hour in the bars? If you answer yes to either question then Thai Fastrack could be for you.

Services include pick-up at the arrival gate, fast tracked luggage collection and fast track Immigration. What's not to like.

Great Caution

The British Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) is warning its citizens throughout Thailand to exercise ‘great caution’ in advance of a Supreme Court ruling on the fate of exiled former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra’s 76 billion baht in seized assets.

A statement posted on the FCO’s website and signed by British Ambassador to Thailand Quinton Quayle reads as follows:

“The political situation in Thailand is tense and uncertain. British citizens should exercise great caution throughout Thailand and avoid demonstrations or large gatherings of people that might turn violent. It is likely that there will be mass protests by anti-government demonstrators in and around Bangkok. A court decision due on 26 February 2010 is a potential flashpoint. If, as is quite possible, anti-government protests turn violent, British citizens should stay indoors and monitor the media and this website.”

The foreign services of a number of other nations have posted similar advice on their websites.

If they ever hold the Olympics in Pattaya.......

Birds and the bees

Little boy goes to his father and asks "Daddy, how was I born?"

The father answers: "Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway. Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo.

Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe.

We sneaked into a secluded room, where your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive.

As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a blessed little Pop-Up appeared and said: You've Got Male.

Youtube Disco

Youtube Disco lets you set up and save playlists of your favourite vids. You have a Search panel and a Playlist/view panel so you can do both in tandem.

Just think, you could set up a playlist of all Geoff's vids so you can watch them one after the other on a rainy Sunday afternoon. I think I need a Stella!!!!!!
