    For the gram

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 31/08/2018

    » Let's face it: we live in a day and age where our lives are all about social media. People use it for things as vain as conjuring up the perfect image for their followers, to things like having a good online presence for their business. Whatever the case, one of the main platforms that we use daily (if not hourly) is good ol' Instagram. Since 2010, IG has all of us sharing photos, choosing filters, taking videos, being obsessed with the right aesthetic and posting on our stories. IG is pretty easy to use -- what's so complicated about taking a photo and uploading it -- but come on, you don't want to be an IG noob. Here are six apps to turn your IG cred up a notch, and except for one, all of them are available on the App Store and Google Play.

    Down with comics

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 21/08/2015

    » From the 1970s onwards, a huge number of Thai children have grown up reading Japanese comic books that formed a big part of their pop-cultural upbringing. Thai publisher Vibulkij led the charge by becoming the first to actually acquire licenses to publish comic books in Thailand in 1992. Adopting the Japanese model of releasing weekly magazines containing single chapters from various series, Vibulkij launched Friday, Thailand's first weekly manga magazine. These magazines gave readers the advantage of reading ahead of the collected volumes, of which only several were released each year for each series.

    Publicity never bad

    » Thanks for your brave attempt at clarifying what bridge is and is not (Life, Feb 15). One of the unintended consequences of the saga is that the Pattaya bridge club, small by international standards, is now the most famous in the entire world, with several hundred newspaper and TV reports and tens of thousands of comments on blogsites talking about it. The tale has also made Jeremy Watson (the organiser) and myself (the founder, in 1994) the best-known bridge players throughout the five continents even though our standards sadly fall short of the brilliance usually required for notoriety.

    Tirzah's Kind of Love

    Brunch, Chanun Poomsawai, Published on 02/09/2018

    » 'I'm not dancing, I'm fighting/ I'm not shining, I'm burning," Tirzah Mastin sings over the sparse rigidity of four-to-the-floor beats on the title track off her 2013's debut I'm Not Dancing EP. This was her way of rebelling against the EDM trends in pop music -- an admirably bold statement coming from someone who was just starting out. Hailing from Essex, Mastin operates mononymously as Tirzah. Under that moniker she explores her penchant for all things leftfield, fusing post-grime and futuristic R&B with experimental pop -- all courtesy of her school pal producer Mica Levi.

    When literature becomes light

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 23/07/2018

    » Haruki Murakami's books exert a strange pull that's earned him a devoted following around the world -- and Thailand is no exception. One foot planted in the reality of the modern world, the other trudging through a surreal dreamland as the ground beneath his characters' feet keeps shifting, Murakami entrances and confuses, lulls and hallucinates. His novels and short stories also occupy that exclusive territory in the literary world: he's a best-selling author who's also every bookmaker's favourite to win the Nobel Prize. He's also one of a few post-war Japanese writers whose style and substance transcend cultural and national boundaries.
