    A political roast

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 14/10/2016

    » The last few months left of the year usually welcome numerous dinner parties and gatherings with friends and colleagues. That is, if you're not stuck at the office finishing off all that work that's accumulated and sadly won't magically disappear. Head to another party and maybe it'll all blow over?

    Breaking bad news

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 27/01/2017

    » Now that 2016 is finally over, we can rest assured that all the bull**** and f**kery it brought with it will never be repeated. Right? RIGHT?! Bleh, who knows what the future has in store for us. Let's face it, this time last year the thought of Trump becoming the 45th President of the United States probably made you spit out your coffee or, if you're a hipster, choke on your kale juice. But then again, never say never, right?

    » If there's anything this country hasn't quite got a grip on, it's coming to terms with the truth and censorship. Oh sure, ban the Daily Mail and pornographic websites (nothing ruins a country like coitus), and blur out taboo subjects all you want -- we still know what nipples, guns and cigarettes look like. Instead of letting citizens think for themselves, the censorship nazis have decided to put a PG filter on anything that may conjure the slightest spark of controversy.

    Bothersome Bangkok

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 11/09/2015

    » Bangkokians’ got 99 problems -- and we’re still counting. Sure, there are perks, such as having the safety net of motosai drivers when we’re running super late, a 7-Eleven at every street corner so we’ll never starve to death -- even the persistence of luxury malls, which keep popping up so we’ll never be without brands at which to throw our hard-earned cash. But the reality is us city-dwellers don’t always have it as easy as others might think. Bangkok is a tough city to live in, but know this, Dear Readers, you are never alone -- all 6.3 million of us have, on more than one occasion, also found ourselves in these face-palm-worthy situations. Forget first-world problems, here are 10 common struggles Bangkokians regularly face.

    The campaigns

    Guru, Jarupat Buranastidporn, Published on 03/10/2014

    » Recently, Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha issued a 23-page policy statement on how he intends to get this country back on its feet. Of course, we’re not one to criticise his foolproof plans, nor suggest that he should come up with another song, this time collaborating with popular artists like Thaitanium or Joey Boy to keep the young’uns from switching radio stations every time the tune comes on. Instead, Guru enlists the help of aspiring change-makers from different industries to come up with their own political campaigns of what improvements they’d like to see, what laws should be implemented and even the lyrics to their own songs; so if the present and future PMs ever run out of ideas, they’ll know where to look.
