    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.

    Mitski, demystified

    B Magazine, Published on 26/08/2018

    » Born to an American father and a Japanese mother, Mitski Miyawaki spent her childhood essentially being a nomad and a stranger in foreign lands. After stints in countries like Congo and Turkey, she relocated to New York, where she pursued her artistic passions, dabbling in film study before eventually focusing on music. This gave her a bit of a head start in the industry because, by the time she graduated, she'd already self-released two records, Lush and Retired From Sad, New Career In Business, as part of her school projects.

    To paradise and back

    Life, Published on 09/10/2018

    » Memory and fact, fiction and documentary, characters and lives -- perhaps they're not all that distinguishable, and that's why they all mingle freely in the Thai film that just had a world premiere at the 23rd Busan International Film Festival this past weekend. Nakorn-Sawan (literally, "paradise city", and also a name of a province) is the feature debut by Puangsoi Aksornsawang, a young filmmaker whose delicate sensibility is attuned to the joy and sorrow of family life.

    Spin the world some more

    Life, Published on 03/10/2018

    » Inside the sound control room of Chon Buri's Karma Sound Studio, the three members of Thai alternative rock band Slot Machine were standing in a corner, bobbing up and down in excitement as a line of journalists stepped through the door. One by one, we were greeted by the band's latest record producer Brandon Darner -- a former Slipknot drummer whose list of credits also include chart topping hits with Imagine Dragons.

    A hint of political maturation

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 25/09/2018

    » The Bangkok Art and Culture Centre has been put under bureaucratic pressure, its budget cut and its relations with Bangkok Metropolitan Authority strained. One way to support this hub of contemporary art in downtown Bangkok is simple: visit the place, admire the art and the events, and show that the city needs a modern, open-minded art and culture venue unshackled by the old guard.

    Old versus new

    Life, Suthon Sukphisit, Published on 21/09/2018

    » Culinary art keeps evolving. Nothing is the same when looking back 50 years, when the same kind of food was completely different from today. It is quite difficult to predict future food style. It would be possible that shrimp with spicy soup might add vermicelli or black bean. Or pad Thai might add red tilapia fish. Or soybean milk might replace coconut milk in green curry.

    Celine Dion floats Bangkok's boat

    Life, Kong Rithdee, Published on 25/07/2018

    » That "sinking boat" song -- that's how Celine "My Heart Will Go On" Dion, joking with the casual humour of a seasoned Las Vegas residency entertainer, refers to her most played, most loved, most karaoke-d, and perhaps most clichéd number. How many times have you heard it? Hundreds, if not more, intentionally or accidentally. And yet, apparently, there's nothing compared to hearing it live, 21 years after that big boat sank in Titanic, belted out at top octave and lung power by Dion herself, as she did to the roaring crowd at Impact Arena on Monday night in her first-ever concert in Bangkok.
