IHC After Dark: Tune in, turn on and listen to some Thai psychedelic rock

Thai musical congregation Khun Narin Phin Sing, from the Phetchabun Province, conjures up some mystical vibes in their indescribably beautiful psychedelia. Google translates the song title and YouTube uploader quite trippingly as “Khun Narin Racing Harp” posted by “Melting The Drug.” The spacey guitar sound is emanating from a phin, which is a type of two to three-stringed lute popular in Thailand and Laos.

If you’re in Thailand and an old man says he can give you a tattoo that makes you invincible, it’s probably bullshit
It’s a really damn nice looking tattoo, but the tattoo artist was apparently making money by telling people his tattoos would protect them from knives or guns. Didn’t work.

For some reason, the hottest fashion accessory this year in Bangkok is Hitler

Since they were on the other side of the world while Hitler was trying to take over Europe in the 1940s, I guess it’s understandable that the average teenage Thai is pretty far removed emotionally from the idea of Hitler. But it’s still odd that this year, Hitler seems to be the hottest fashion accessory in Bangkok.
