I've been pleasantly surprised and impressed by it so far. Peter Doherty (of Babyshambles) is awful though. Smiley

Good work Mr. Geldof and company...

Yes. He was terrible. Too far messed up with drugs and booze.

Was very surprised to see Bill Gates on there.

Yep, me too. I could have sworn I heard someone calling out about a Windows problem though ... and there should have been a blue screen behind him, surely?

The Live 8 Thread

Seeing the word "AOL" just sends a shiver down my back (as some of you will know from reading my threads in the ADSL forum.

Beyond that, I am watching it aswell, me and my family just don't like Bob Geldof cos we believe he is doing this all for his own gain.

Well his "Track" wasn't popular until he started Live 8. It was afterwards. See what I am getting at?

I cant count on my hands the number of expletives I've heard from Snoop Dogg before the 9pm watershed.

I have heard a good bit of bad language today. I asked sombody on MSNM and aparently it is permitted before 9PM if it is a charity event, but he wasn't 100% sure on that, but its what he was told.

On the internet there is no restriction, however, you're definately not allowed to say 'fu**ing' on TV, live or not, before 9pm.
