    More than just a role to play

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 06/10/2017

    » Kelly B Jones is pretty well known in Bangkok’s acting circles; in recent years, among many roles, she played the lead in Culture Collective’s play Death of Miss America and was in two feature films by Asylum Films, King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table and Troy 2, which is due to to come out at the end of October. But Guru, enamoured also by her ability to juggle different roles outside the world of acting, decided to sit down with the talented actress and voice-talent to dig deeper into her quest for making the planet more eco-friendly, one school at a time. Her current position as Director of IPC Green International Preschool and Nursery, Bangkok’s first eco-friendly school, is testament to this journey we all need to start walking, together. Read on to find out more about how Kelly balances her calling for acting with her passion to make the world a greener place.

    Directing Twelve Angry Men

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 07/10/2016

    » Loni Berry, the man behind Bangkok's multicultural, English speaking theatre, Culture Collective, is set to be putting on Twelve Angry Men towards the end of this month, the first of a string of plays the theatre will be staging this season. We're uber keen to see what he's got up his sleeve for this one, considering his Lisbon Traviata won Best Production at the 2015 Bangkok Theatre Festival. And personally, we did love his musically witty Death of Miss America. From Asian stereotypes and homosexuality, to nudity, Berry's performances always tackle prickly topics that make viewers stop and think. We thought it's wise to dig a little deeper into the artistic director who's making such great, mind-altering and risky moves for theatre in Bangkok.

    What's spinning on GURU FM

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 05/08/2016

    » "Without music, life would be a mistake", said existentialism's darling, Friedrich Nietzsche. Guru does solemnly agree. And who pushes a significant portion of music in this city? Bangkok's live DJs, of course! They're like our unsung heroes, our hidden gems. They really do hold the keys to our city!

    The sound effect

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 08/09/2017

    » With the number of independent films being made and an increasing number of recording artists taking the leap into the unknown without a label, knowledge about sound and how and where to best capture it becomes key. Luckily you're in the right country. Thailand is a production hub for Southeast Asia when it comes to film and now even more so, music. So, if you've written music for a video, a movie, a music album or you've got this song in your head that you always dreamed of recording... where do you go to turn such far-fetched notes into reality? You could of course do it yourself and start off at home! All you'd need is a condenser mic, a laptop and a few other bits of hardware (e.g. an audio interface, headphones, a MIDI keyboard) and software (Logic Pro or Ableton are some of many) and you'd be well on your way. Or you could go to the professionals, who would have all the gear at your disposal as well as the know-how to see your visions turn into reality. We decided to investigate some of the city's existing recording studios to see what they have to offer in the way of making music.

    A North Fest you won't forget

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 24/02/2017

    » Oozing the same appeal as a vampiric rock God and donning picture-perfect porcelain skin that would make any woman green with an envy, actor/singer and famed Thai celeb Dome Pakorn Lam was answering floods of calls about his new project in Chiang Mai when we sat down to interview him. This is one celeb that means business. Completing his look was an army green barber jacket and black jeans that had chains dangling from the sides; we thought this fashion trend had died down years ago but somehow Dome made it hot again. We got to grips with Dome's true passion in life, music, and what he's doing right now to fulfil this passion.

    On the spot inspiration

    Guru, Catherine Faulder, Published on 11/03/2016

    » Is it just me or have Sundays become synonymous with: a) almighty hangovers-turned-champagne brunches that result in an even bigger Monday morning headache or b) staying in bed all day because you want to sleep off the tiring week that flew by quicker than you could say, "Dude, where's my double non-fat soy decaf iced vanilla gingerbread frappuccino?"

    Hear me now!

    Life, Catherine Faulder, Published on 19/11/2015

    » Wannarit Pongprayoon turns up half-an-hour late, his handsome face hugely apologetic. He’s wearing a forest green shirt, ripped diesel jeans and a pair of worn down grey Converse. In real life, Wannarit may come across as somewhat shy and awkward, but when our photographer pulls out a camera to take some shots, he pulls off the “I don’t care, I woke up like this and I still look like a rock-star look” incredibly well.
