    Revolutionary's road

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 02/04/2019

    » Poet, novelist, piano player. And that was before Gil Scott-Heron had reached 20. He wrote and recorded his best known song, The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, in 1971, and from then on produced a unique and polemical body of prose, poetry and music that led him to be dubbed the "Father of Political Rap", the originator of "nu soul" and many more titles. He preferred being called a "bluesologist".

    Life, Melalin Mahavongtrakul, Published on 15/03/2019

    » A teen love triangle and the supernatural collide in Saeng Krasue (Inhuman Kiss), the reimagining of a well-known Thai folktale set in the era of World War II. A rural village is under a mysterious attack and the locals whisper the words of krasue -- a woman by day, and a ghostlike creature by night -- who leaves her body at home while her head and internal organs fly out the window to devour raw flesh. The condition is contagious through saliva.

    Beyond the ropes

    Guru, Pasavat Tanskul, Published on 19/10/2018

    » In Bangkok's Charoen Krung area, tucked within an alley lies Maison Close, a dark bar/art gallery and home to some of the more uncommon tastes in art from abstract calligraphy to ero guro. However, as you enter the venue on some nights, art isn't the only focus but a blindfolded woman hung in suspension with ropes. The ropes have been tied up by a rope artist and her model serves as a canvas for elaborate and intricate patterns. Despite looking uncomfortable, the model, dubbed a rope bunny, is in a state of stillness and relaxation, with the ropes symmetrically wrapped around the curves of her body -- something beautiful or mesmerising. This is shibari or the art of Japanese rope bondage. Enter at your own risk.

    Nitro-Tastic

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 26/07/2019

    » If you missed out on Crash Team Racing aka CTR back on the PS1 then man, you missed a lot. Crash Bandicoot was already an iconic character in the PS1 days and CTR came along and gave us even more fun to be had with Crash and his friends and foes, eventually becoming a beloved title, so much so that until now the debate rages on whether Mario Kart or CTR is the best kart racing game. You have no idea how many hours I've spent playing the kart game either by myself or split-screen with friends (because split-screen was the only way to do multiplayer back then. Dang, I'm old). You can imagine then just how excited I was when they announced CTR: Nitro-Fueled. In the vein of the previously released Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy, this game remasters CTR and brings back to our childhood days. But it's not all just about nostalgia.
