"Lady Gaga fans gush, critics blast fake-watch Tweet"[^]. from "The Nation," Bangkok English-language newspaper on-line.

Excerpt: "A crew of more than 1,000 has been working to prepare Rajamangala National Stadium for the big event, and police have stepped up security and traffic-control measures. For the biggest concert ever put on by promoter BEC-Tero, props and gear have been hauled in by three 747 aircraft and by sea in 23 shipping containers. One piece of equipment was so large that a gate at the stadium had to be removed to fit it in.

Fans have camped outside the stadium for days, hoping to be first inside and win the prize of meeting the Lady Gaga in person."

Once again, glad I don't live in Bangkok !

best, Bill

p.s. my first views of Lady Gaga's songs on YouTube left me as nauseated as most of Madonna's previous hits, from which a lot of LG's material is clearly taken. But, then, a friend, sent me to a link to her doing a solo acoustic (piano) performance of "Poker Face," I believe in front of a live audience in Amsterdam, and I was delighted by it: my sense is that behind the vast marketing machinery that created and sustains the LG brand/icon, is a person with real musical talent.
"Humans are amphibians ... half spirit and half animal ... as spirits they belong to the eternal world, but as animals they inhabit time. This means that while their spirit can be directed to an eternal object, their bodies, passions, and imaginations are in continual change, for to be in time, means to change. Their nearest approach to constancy, therefore, is undulation: the repeated return to a level from which they repeatedly fall back, a series of troughs and peaks.” C.S. Lewis
