  4. Thanks for the verification Stick, it did seem strange a complete change in business model from relying on advertisers to finance it, to going to full paid content. Also I realised something fishy with domain name and a possible copyright breach. When I saw Paul101 post last night my first impression was “Someone is milking the cow here” $25 per month / $120 per year for unsubstantiated gossip, I can’t see whoever is behind it getting too many subscribers. For a start who is really so interested enough in such gossip to pay for it? I know I wasn’t in my “Bar Days” which ended over 20 years ago, and how can the owner guarantee 5 such exposures every month. My bet is it will be gone by Songkran.

  5. To be 100% clear, this is NOTHING TO DO WITH ME or the owners of StickmanBangkok.com. (For those who don't know, I sold 2/3 of the site in 2015 and then the whole site was sold to a third party on 2018. I was paid to write the column from 2018 until a year ago at which point updates on the site stopped.) This newsletter is the work of a disgruntled former employee who has gone rogue. It has nothing to do with me, the founder / initial creator of StickmanBangkok.com nor does it have anything to do with the current owners.

  7. Go-Betweens are a Brissie band, most of the really good bands come from here. I used to live next door to the Saints squat in Petrie Terrace. The Go-Betweens have had a bridge, a tunnel, and some other stuff named after them in Brissie

  10. Maxwell was Criminal, got found guilty yesterday, but Randy Andy one is a civil case brought by Virginia Giueffre (née Roberts) In the light of the Maxwell verdict there are calls to bring criminal charges against Randy Andy Even if criminal charges are brought, papers cannot be served in the presence of the Queen or near any official residence (how far is near, i.e. 100 yards, 100 miles etc, is not defined) Furthermore if papers are successfully served then extradition proceedings have to take place, somehow I couldn’t imagine UK Courts sanctioning the extradition of any resident, let alone the queens son, in light of the ongoing Harry Dunn case, where the US won’t turn over Anna Sacoolas.

  13. Maybe if Tik-Tok didn’t publish such crap as The Penny Challqnge she wouldn’t have to suffer videos of kids electrocuting themselves As for publisher responsibility, the argument between “Platform and Punlisher is a mute point” you must be referring to US Section 230, which generally provides immunity for websites and platforms with respect to third party content. Fortunately all the world does not bow to US laws, no matter how much the US thinks it does. The European Union has Directive2000/31/EC and Electronic Commerce Directive 2000 The UK has the above plus Defamation Act 2013 Other countries also have there own laws, guidelines and precedents set in recent court hearings You could quite easily disappear down a Rabbit Hole on this topic.

  14. Yes it would stop the nonsense from bored hypocrites pretending to be outraged by posting very mild AKB vid made years ago, and then making vile implications at the responses, and one with a name stating his penis is hungry! at least I can see the funny side, some on here have had a sense of humor bypass as well as a common sense one. Happy new year lads.

  16. Belfast [2021] A young boy and his working-class Belfast family experience the tumultuous late 1960s. A mostly feel good indulgent homage to the directors own life growing up in the troubles as seen by a young kid, that makes for an entertaining drama with the entire musical score done by Van Morrison.

  18. C'mon C'mon [2021] When his sister asks him to look after her young son, a radio journalist embarks on a cross-country trip with his energetic nephew to show him life away from Los Angeles. A remarkably likeable drama with plenty of talking and listening going on, shot in black and white with extraordinary performances. Well worth seeing when the mood suits.

  19. Landscapers [2021 TV Limited Series] A devoted and mild-mannered British couple become the focus of an extraordinary investigation when two dead bodies are discovered in the back garden of a house in England. Based on a true and bizarre event, the story is directed skillfully in an original black and theatrical comedic style using two top actors making for an intriguing series.

  20. The French Dispatch [2021] An ode to journalists set in an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional twentieth century French city that brings to life a collection of three stories published in "The French Dispatch Magazine". A trademark Wes Anderson film, quirky, original, a visual feast worth seeing.

  23. Simple reason, it gives me an escape into some sort of normality while working away from home. The site also lets me communicate with like minded people when in places where there is no one to communicate with. I donated as a thank you and to help make sure the site continues. For long lasting return, value for money and pleasure, best $100 I ever spent. Big thank you to all the guy?s that participate, make this board a friendly and interesting place to visit. May it long continue.

  24. A one-year degree in pantomime is being launched by a university. Staffordshire University claims it is a world first and the masters course is aimed at people working inside as well as outside the industry. Students on the course, due to start in September 2022, will get practical training in the art form as well as research the discipline. "We want to see how far we can take this," Associate Professor of Acting and Directing Robert Marsden said. The role of pantomime in the 21st Century was also going to be examined, he said, "particularly post Me Too and Black Lives Matter". Questions including "how do we address the gender issues, how do we tell the story of Aladdin in 2021, how do we get that balance of male/female roles?" will be asked, Prof Marsden added. As part of the course, students will create and produce their own original show which will be performed in the local community. The university says they will also be getting formal training and networking for future careers through placements and work experience. The aim is not just to produce actors, directors and other staff for pantomimes. Prof Marsden said skills picked up on the course could be used in other areas. As one example, he said there was a "whole module on setting up a theatre company" which could give students "lots of critical, practical skills". The course has been put together with the Wilkes Academy of Performing Arts and its principal, Jonathan Wilkes, has regularly appeared in pantomime at the Regent Theatre, Stoke-on-Trent. "It has been a big part of my life and I'm looking forward to passing on my knowledge and skills to support the next generation of panto professionals," he said. Pantomimes became typical Christmas fare in the Victorian era and are often crucial to theatres for income and reaching new audiences. The course is being backed by seasoned pantomime performers Stephen Mulhern and Christopher Biggins, who said "we should all be preserving traditions". https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-stoke-staffordshire-59729658 FFS what next, this is even dumber than underwater basket weaving, and I know what to call a pantomime dame “Madem Twinky” or whatever, depending on pantomime, but what do you call 2 men dressed as a Horse? Just knew BLM would be part of it,
