    Feeling all right

    Brunch, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 26/08/2018

    » There is a stillness -- borderline boring -- to Scrubb's chosen mode of visual expression. The constant of stony faces and stock-still poses that embellishes all of the band's album artwork, editorial photo shoots and magazine covers is bequeathed on us too, as Torpong "Ball" Chantabubpha and Thawatpon "Muay" Wongboonsiri laugh through gritted teeth that it is actually a strain for them to smile for the cameras or to assume the role of a dancing monkey.


    Swing the night away

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 12/09/2017

    » The biggest swing party of the city returns this Saturday, so shine your dancing shoes and bring out your swirly skirts and suits. Hosted by Bangkok Swing, Diga Diga Doo! will be a roaring night out with spectacular shows, live performances and a swing floor on which to dance the night away.


    DNCE the night away

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 15/08/2017

    » You'd expect the crowd at DNCE to be younger -- I mean high-school young -- but it wasn't as young as many as expected. It's a school night, after all.


    Swinging with the guys and dolls

    » I like pie, I like cake. I like everything you bake.


    The wonder of Oz at Thong Lor Art Space

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 11/08/2016

    » Everybody knows about Dorothy Gale and her adventures in Oz, but L. Frank Baum also has a bevy of other characters just as endearing and unique as the little girl who got tornadoed into the magical land away from her home in Kansas. If you've never heard of Tik-Tok before, Thong Lor Art Space offers you the chance to get up real close to what is possibly the world's first robot character portrayed in literature in The Adventures Of Tik-Tok, Man Of Oz this month. The first half will recount the adventures of the Wizard of Oz and Dorothy, before heading towards the land of Ev, where the "mechanical man" who was forgotten in a cave is later found by Dorothy.


    Monstrously good

    » 'Shrek, can we go to the floating market?" Donkey begs.


    Flight of fancy

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 11/06/2015

    » Some things never get old, and the classic farce Boeing Boeing is one of them. Remade and reinterpreted around the world for over 50 years, there was no surprise that the comedy, first written by French playwright Marc Camolleti, would eventually land rather fittingly on Thai shores. A playboy juggling three different air hostess fiancées — I'm not altogether sure that someone Thai didn't come up with this plot.


    Tale as old as time

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 03/03/2015

    » It brings an emotional tear to eye when cartoons can capture the heart-wrenching trials of humanity, but when humans can come across convincingly as cartoons, the result is undeniable glee. Disney's Broadway spectacular, Beauty And The Beast, which is showing in Thailand for the very first time, brings the 1991 Oscar-winning classic of the same name to life.


    Packing a punch of emotions

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 20/02/2014

    » It’s definitely something to question. Why hadn’t someone staged a muay Thai play in Thailand earlier? Maybe our sabai sabai temperament is the cause, but after all these years, Ekachai Uekrongtham has finally created a piece of theatre — Muay Thai Live — that single-mindedly uses muay Thai as the main fuel to create a spectacular live show. First opening at Asiatique earlier this year, Muay Thai Live encapsulates the origins and heroes of muay Thai in history, spanning 300 years from the past to present day, into an hour-and-a-half timeframe.


    Degrees of Fame

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 01/02/2013

    » Can you learn to be a star? Perhaps, or at least that's what a lot of young people believe, for it has been biologically embedded in our instinct to want the easiest and most entertaining job that also comes with fame and money.
