Bangkok Wakes to Rain

Places remember us... In the restless city of Bangkok, there is a house. Over the last two centuries, it has played host to longings and losses past, present, and future, and has witnessed lives shaped by upheaval, memory and the lure of home. A nineteenth-century missionary pines for the comforts of New England, even as he finds the vibrant foreign chaos of Siam increasingly difficult to resist. A jazz pianist is summoned in the 1970s to conjure music that will pacify resident spirits, even as he's haunted by ghosts of his former life. A young woman in a time much like our own gives swimming lessons in the luxury condos that have eclipsed the old house, trying to outpace the long shadow of her political past. And in the submerged Bangkok of the future, a band of savvy teenagers guides tourists and former residents past waterlogged landmarks, selling them tissues to wipe their tears for places they themselves do not remember. Time collapses as their stories collide and converge, linked by blood, memory, yearning, chance, and the forces voraciously making and remaking the amphibian, ever-morphing city itself. Bangkok Wakes to Rain: 'Beautifully textured and rich with a sense of place, this is a big, ambitious book. I love the way Sudbanthad so compellingly captures not only the long arcs of these lives - but also the smallest moments, and how those moments linger in memory, how they haunt.' Karen Thompson Walker, author of The Age of Miracles 'There's a simple, ingenious conceit to this book - the stories a house can contain, from Bangkok's colonial past to its antediluvian future. This is a bold and tender novel about the unforgivable and the unforgiven, and how to live past what you thought you could not survive. Sudbanthad arrives to us already a masterful innovator of the form - a startlingly original debut.' Alexander Chee, author of The Queen of the Night 'Pitchaya Sudbanthad's beautiful, ambitious first novel Bangkok Wakes To Rain moves with an elegant restlessness that seems to match the city's own. Reading this book feels like waking to a singular and important new voice.' Rajesh Parameswaran, author of I Am An Executioner

Hoarding: Digital Hoarding, Animal Hoarding and...

Many people enjoy collecting things. But what happens when their "collections" grow out of control? People who have a psychological disorder called hoarding may let their teddy bear collections or garbage collections take over their entire homes! Their obsessive and compulsive acquiring of junk, collectibles, and everyday items may result in their homes becoming uninhabitable. Many hoarders' homes are even condemned! Hoarding is a big problem! It is said that there are 300 million hoarders in the United States. Many people may have no idea that they live next to a hoarder. Hoarders are often embarrassed with the state their lives are in because of their illness, but they often feel helpless to stop their compulsive behaviors. Some hoarders are aware that their issues are problematic, whereas others are prone to a sort of "clutter blindness". They cannot readily see the stacks of trash and belongings that they are tripping over as they walk through their homes. Hoarding causes injuries, pest infestations, disease, and death. It makes all of the useful areas of a house completely unusable, such as the bathroom, kitchen, and bedrooms. There are many types of hoarders who collect many different types of things. Hoarders can hoard animals. Many "pack rat" hoarders even collect digital items they will never use (photo files, music, software, porn, and movies), which is not as problematic as collecting physical items. What Is Hoarding? According to UrbanDictionary.com, hoarding is defined as "to keep and collect things that may or may not have value". A person who hoards may have large collections of comic books, nostalgic items, and antiques. He or she may collect pets or animals. Or a hoarder may fill his or her house with garbage, newspapers, artwork, or even an earwax collection. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Katherine Thompson.

Alive AG Watergate 21 House Musik CD Culoe De Song
11,92 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Culoe machte sich als zentrale Figur des Afro-House Movements einen Namen und liefert einen psychedelisch-verträumten Mix für das Berliner Watergate-Label!nnNach der spektakulären zwanzigsten Ausgabe der Watergate-Mix-Serie war klar, daß ein beeindruckender Thronfolger gefunden werden musste. Und so fiel die Wahl auf das Genie von Culoe De Song, einem der hellsten Sterne am House-Firmamente, der das Ruder für Watergate-Mix 21 zu übernehmen sollte. Vom nördlichen Ufer von Südafrikas Ostküste hat Culoe sich in den letzten 10 Jahren seinen Weg in die internationale Szene geebnet. Von seiner ersten Veröffentlichung des südafrikanischen Export Black Coffee von der Have Another One Hymne auf dem mächtigen Innervisions-Label und Tracks auf dem renommierten japanischen Impressum Mule Musiq bis zum Longplayer Washa auf seinem eigenen Label De-Song-Music. Er mischt die Fundamente des modernen House und Techno mit der Ästhetik der traditionellen afrikanischen Musik, und so wurde Culoe De Song einer der wenigen zentralen Figuren für die Afro-House-Bewegung. Der Mix verfügt über eine extravagante Reihe von bisher unveröffentlichten und bekannten Stücken, darunter vier absolut atemberaubend exklusive Originale von Culoe de Song selbst, die als EP auf Watergate Records folgen werden. Culoe vereint Talent, Philosophie und Kunst zu gleichen Teilen und ist dabei psychedelisch und verträumt. Wie einst Hunter S. Thompson sagte: Buy the ticket, take the ride TRACKS: 01. Culoe De Song - Deadman's Walk (exclusive) 02. Francesco Chiocci - Nightmares 03. Em Ex - Fire (exclusive) 04. Culoe De Song - Bang Royales (exclusive) 05.
