Cop escort, hospital find street food & a Fosters girl
Cop escort, sickness street food & a Fosters girl A typical evening on Nguyen Tri Phuong during the Asian Indoor Games. Cops on big bikes roar past, information pills sirens screaming, escorting buses of athletes too and from their accommodation. Meanwhile a Fosters girl cruises the tables, eventually convincing me to try the export style. When you add a block of ice to Fosters, it actually tastes OK.

Phatty’s punter & owner Elvis dance Having a couple of drinks at Phatty’s in District 1 when “Suspicious Minds” came on.

Stephen Have you noticed that most pop songs now contain a large proportion of meaningless chants & baby noises? Dumbing it down for their fans.
Stephen Sombre ride to work this morning after witnessing the aftermath of a fatal bike accident. Rubberneckers nearly caused another.
Stephen Scorpions call it a day. They should have done so before Wind of Change was released, this web but overall they rocked.
Stephen Just had a quick play with Voiceband for iPhone. Awesome! Can’t wait to start recording some stuff at home.
Another for the ‘disbelief file’: http://bit.ly/8Z1j0E .
Stephen Observing an interesting trend. People comment incessantly on the little things, viagra sale but won’t touch the big things. Wanna know what I think of people like that? No, prostate you probably don’t.
Stephen Hard Rock Cafe needs regular rock bands – they deliver live music 6 nights a week. Seriously considering taking up the keys again, forming a band, and going for it. They pay well, I hear.
Stephen Listening to the American Hitmen CD I bought at the Hard Rock Cafe on Saturday night. It’s REALLY good. WAY better than how they sounded on that stage with that mixer (found out later he is an IT geek, not a sound technician), sound system & set list. This is hard to categorise, but is very heavy and has influences from Korn, Queen, Muse & Alice in Chains. I really like it.
