    The day the music died

    Life, John Clewley, Published on 09/07/2019

    » The legendary leader of the famous and influential Petch Phin Thong Band, Noppadon Duangporn, died last week at the age of 77. He was well known across the country, not just as the founder of one of Isan's biggest bands but also as a comedian, radio DJ and movie actor.

    No offence

    Life, Gary Boyle, Published on 22/01/2019

    » You'll be familiar with Jim Jefferies' schtick. He's the archetypal Aussie bloke, unconcerned with politically correct ways to address hot-button topics. His rants wrong-foot you with boozy observations that crystallise into astute commentary on modern society, like he's some kind of pub savant.

    Up, up and way off

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 17/11/2017

    » Amid the incoherent plot, awkward writing, choppy pacing and the dullest villain in recent memory, Justice League shows glimmers of what could have been.

    A cinematic wonder

    Life, Kanin Srimaneekulroj, Published on 02/06/2017

    » Filled with explosive action, deep, heavy exposition and nearly gratuitous fan-service, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice (which I will henceforth refer to as BvS) is a film that's tough to have a definitive opinion on. While the pacing of the film can sometimes feel slightly disjointed and random -- partly due to it being a set-up for DC's planned Justice League franchise (roughly equivalent to Marvel's Avengers) -- everything still comes together with such polish that I found it enjoyable, if a bit uneven.

    In praise of crazy

    Life, Ung-Aang Talay, Published on 01/03/2016

    » There is a story by the American writer Donald Barthelme in which a condemned man is offered the chance to hear one last song before he is executed. He requests Charles Ives' Fourth Symphony, a good choice because with its demand for a huge orchestra, chorus, organ, three pianos (one tuned in quarter-tones), and ultra-complex scoring, the wait involved in preparing a performance would be sure to keep him alive for a long time.

    Playing with roles

    » Two plays and a dance opened in Bangkok last Thursday. All three of which required their performers to play multiple roles.
