Oliver Green

Oliver Green, aka Ganja Gonzo, is a footloose fool blazing swathes through Asia. He grew up in Egypt's Sinai peninsula and went to school in Indonesia and then found England altogether too tame. After living in Bangkok for five months, saving and working and blazing around on big fuckoff motorcycles, he secured a job with a scabby Thai NGO in Phnom Penh. He is a teacher and does humanitarian relief work too. On weekends and holidays he shoots off into the bush on his Honda Dream to find and explore the jungle-ravaged relics of the lost civilizations of Angkor. He is proud to be a member of the Pigdog team.

Clowns Take on God in Mysterious Annual Ceremony
Last Sunday's (the 6th) Grimaldi Service at a small church in East London was a red-letter day for clowns worldwide. About a hundred old-school red-nosed clowns made the sombre trip to darkest Dalston to pay their respects to clowns who died in the last year and to thank God for the gift of laughter in a bizarre ceremony presided over by the eccentric Reverend Clown Roly, resplendent in a garish red lumberjack shirt with oversized gold lapels.

Bad Demo-Craziness
The tumultuous events in Indonesia have left Megawati Soekarnoputri in the vice-president's seat. Nationalists cheer but sensible people shudder: is she from the same Soekarno family that includes presidents, porn stars, dangerous drunks, phallus-obsessed megalomaniacs and gay dancers? She sure is! So, discarding journalistic integrity, let's take a look at her family to gauge just how dangerously insane she really is.

The Deep Dark Underbelly of the Star Wars Myth, or Ramayana Remembered
It's a fact: Star Wars is a blatant plagiarism of an ancient Asian legend, and the long lines of devout Star Wars freaks are really unscrupulous Asian copyright busters. From Indonesia to Thailand to Nepal, videos are available for sale or rent before they're even released in the US and UK due to this nerdy camcorder-clutching bunch.

Perilous afternoons at Café Freedom
The most dangerous bar in Phnom Penh is Café Freedom on the west side of Boeng Kak Lake. The number of dangerous things here is great and comes from a whole load of different angles. There's a constant threat of siege by the military police, who are likely to come at any time to apprehend the viciously insane Scottish owner, Brian.

Shameful Arrests of Good-natured Ganja Ladies in Phnom Penh's Russian Market
PHNOM PENH, Cambodia -- Early on the morning of Friday the 12th, when the Russian market in downtown Phnom Penh was beginning a day of hard sell and fish guts, police arrested seven of the much-loved local ganja ladies when they resisted certain policemen's extortion attempts.
