    Why are Thais completely immune to musical repetition?

    Since the weekend I have been awoken by the sound of rather calming, chanting music emitting from the tannoy speakers situated in and around the market area of Mueng Thong Thani.

    The thing is, the music has no beginning or end - it is there when you wake up between 0700 and 0800 and plays on a relentless loop until well after dark. Today I found out that I have to put up with this until the 26th, so I have just viewed a room in Ekkamai and will be moving in at the end of the week.

    Earlier I tried to locate the source of the music so that I could sabotage the cables or something but to no avail. Apparently the music is 'for' the Chinese vegetarian festival which is what, exactly - to do with Thailand?

    Why does it have to be played in public with no escape? ...Sure it's just not one of many ways that the government distracts and hypnotizes it's people and keeps them happy subdued cattle?

    Anyway, back to the music - a Thai could be subjected to a thousand back to back plays of Hotel California and still have a smile on their face, why is this?

    Has part of their brain been removed? ....The same part that gives normal people a sense that somebody is behind them trying to get past on the pavement?

    Wow..............Ekkamai........... thats a step up the residential ladder mate. I may be moving the family back to Bangkok as well.

    I never understood why you lived out in the sticks as the travel expenses, not to mention traveling time was working against you.

    TGS - You will change the noise pollution against the car smoke pollution...

    out of that

    There is not a single Thai song or singer that i like!

    Probably due to their special tones and not understanding the language...

    Is there any Thai singer / music worth listening ?

    Move all you want sCamp, it is the same all over Thailand. Loud music, loud tv's, loud speakers, loud motorbikes, loud buses, loud cars and loud people.

    You are likely to change one problem for another.

    Palmy is well fit...I went to a concert of hers and she's a great entertainer...guess she's about as Thai as DJPrat...
    Palmy was born Eve Pancharoen on 7 August 1981 to multiethnic parents - her mother Thai and her father Belgian. Educated in Australia.

    Travel will be more expensive living in the city but you are spot on with the time wasted.

    Ekkamai is not posh anyway, I once lived there in a ladyboy's apartment and it was average size.

    Fuckin' vegetable festival - and it's Chinese?

    This is just silly, I mean... Take the Japs for example, they are hard working, sincere, openly erotic, advanced, faithful, submissive, inteligent and they don't celebrate other peoples vegetables by playing echoey shite in public on a 12hr loop for one week.

    I just watched the "Raping of Nanjing" special on TV and you can add vicious, callous and without remorse to your list of good points mate.

    I have also worked with them and one on one they are as dumb as fvck.

    My favourite Thai restaurant has abandoned the pleasant pop song backing music in favour of "traditional" Thai music which sounds like a rabid cat scrambling over milk bottles. . Honestly, it sounds utterly fucking awful, like a classroom of retarded kids all trying to play different songs on xylophones or something. All percussion with no discernible melody.
    I asked one of the staff if they minded listening to the same music all day / every day, and they just smiled at me. Business seems to be as good as before, so what the heck do i know..?
