We are very happy to welcome Graham, of the Big Mango Bar, to join us today for a quasi-interview. With his recent post on the Mango Blog, questions and rumors have been flying high about “the future” – including (predictably) the usual broken-record-rants from the usual sockie (you know, same guy that has been endlessly predicting the capture of Keith Summers, and then answers his own taunts on Kenny’s site – well, ’nuff said.)
Without further ado – here’s Graham!
RDD: Graham, thanks for joining us for this little Q&A. As I pointed out in the opener, it seems like our special (as in ‘education) friends over on Kenny’s site have their own theories about reality – and while he certainly pretends to have a big mouth, it seems like there’s little substance behind it all … one might conclude “as usual”. Do you have any thoughts on that?
Graham: …. the sockies….. Ha! I just knew I’d get a rise out of that bunch of broke ass losers. For starters, they STILL hide from me!! Come on, I am only little. Come and have a go… I dare you… I double dare you!
RDD: Well, to be honest, I wouldn’t bet against you. These guys, and there seem to be just 2-3 of them, have proven over the years to be consistent cowards and no-shows – in fact, how long has this been going on?
Graham: 5 years. Kenny and his sockies are all upset because after 5 YEARS – I am not thinking of doing something else. Yes, 5 years. For 5 years Kenny has tried to harm me and failed!
RDD: Wow, has it been that long – time flies, I guess. So, after 5 years, the Big Mango has thrived (as far as I can see), as you’ve gone through a renovation, expanded and updated interior and exterior. I really like the new look, which I had a chance to sample when I stopped by during my trip last year. 5 years, and at worst the Big Mango has held it’s own – yet, when we compare that what Kenny has ‘achieved’ in 5 years…. well, not a whole lot – particularly with indications that CSUN plans to wipe off the ugly stain that he’s become sometimes this year, but I digress…
Is there anything you wrote that could have brought about all that misunderstanding? I read the same blog post, and I saw nothing else there, than your genuine having grown tired of how Bangkok has changed.
Graham: That’s right. All I wrote was that the visitors to Bangkok have changed. (of course, the sad fucking losers have always been there) I have a new project that I am working on, so am looking to leave Bangkok. Why the fuss? The only people put out by this are the jealous assholes!
RDD: A new project? Could we be looking at a Big Mango sister bar in some other location? Phuket? Paris? Monaco? Los Angeles?
Graham: (enigmatic smile)
RDD: I also read somewhere that a question got censored?!?!
Graham: Good one. I don’t censor any questions – Not that I get any. I might ignore certain personal questions about people which is none of their business. Unfortunately these kinds of people are only looking to use this information to create some kind of trouble. If you want to ask me a question, do it to my face. Don’t hide behind a monitor. Everyone that is upfront an honest with me, gets an honest answer.You want to know who owns the Mango? Well, it’s not Nick and Mike. They are long gone.
RDD: Right, myself, and Gulliver, and BigDummy – we’re all co-owners, if “those” sources are to be believed. I sure hope you’re not going to ask us to work in the kitchen, or cleaning the short-time room…
Graham: The bathroom on the second floor, or my penthouse on top?
RDD: Yes, that one I love that persistent meme about the short-time room. With 3-4 short-time hotels right outside the Big Mango, who’d need a short-time room on premises. Just stupid… oh, right, and then there’s the other meme that you “hate Mango customers” – I would think that if you hated customers, they wouldn’t keep coming back, yet they do… I guess your customers must be gluttons for punishment?
Graham: Oh, right, the numpty that claims I wrote that I hate Mango customers??!??! Where did I say that? I actually said that I don’t see many of them as customers, but as friends who I like to hang out with.
RDD:: I’m still intrigued that it’s been 5 years – and doesn’t Kenny (or his sycophant) realize that, if the Big Mango is still here after 5 years, and has expanded and constantly improved, that this is far from considering it a “failure”?
Graham: The Mango failed? Really? How does a hobby fail? It’s not like it’s costing me money… But get this, and this is the best bit…. in the Mango, all the wankers that are against it – don’t drink there! So I don’t have to be near those uneducated cheap assholes. Great! I have, and still hang out with great people. I visit the gogos and have a great time. I am popular and liked in my circles. I can only assume that it pains Kenny and his pals that he gets no mention whatsoever on the Mango blog. He is too insignificant to subject the Mango readership to. Kenny ‘needs’ all this on his site to keep the 2 or 3 readers entertained.
RDD: So, effectively, it’s a win/win for you? The “wankers” (as you call them) are afraid to come near the Big Mango, you don’t have to deal with them, and you get to have a great time with like-minded friends. Sounds like “winning” to me.
Graham: Exactly! How many of them can say that? They are either fat-ass broke english teachers or a two-week sex tourist? Or in the case of moRonru and Kenny – someone who is petrified of ever bumping into me because they fear a good kicking.
RDD: Well, I think that covers all the “hard questions” I had. Thanks for taking the time. Let’s go hit some Gogo bars next time.
