The Most Comfortable Prison: Bangkok Covid Quarantine

The Most Comfortable Prison: Bangkok Covid Quar...

August 30, 2020 By bangkok7

Hey everyone. I’m taking a break from weekly reports of goings-on on Patpong to recount my time in a Bangkok Coronavirus quarantine (Coruarantine for short, copyright BKK7) hotel. Not because I want to, but because a friend requested that I blog about it. So here goes. As you know, there’s been a months-long ban on

The Suburbs of Babylon Chapter 10

August 28, 2020 By bangkok7

TBIF, friends. In honor of the coming weekend–which for me will probably be sub-par, because I always place my expectations too high–below is another chapter from my widely-panned and thoroughly disappointing first novel, The Suburbs of Babylon. The first 9 and 1/2 chapters can be found elsewhere on this site… “Chapter Ten In the absence

Post-Pandemic Patpong Points Part 3

August 23, 2020 By bangkok7

Hello net surfer. Bangkok Seven here, with another testimonial from deep inside the dark nether regions of the red-light district. Since escaping quarantine earlier this month, I’ve been haunting the dim, dismal streets of Patpong nightly, and reported on the state of things in two previous Sunday blogs. And just when I think I’ve said

The Suburbs of Babylon Continued…

August 21, 2020 By bangkok7

Happy Frowback Friday, reader. Below is the next excerpt in the continuing weekly publication of my self-published and universally panned semi-autobigraphical novel, “The Suburbs of Babylon.” The following is a tangential mini-chapter in between the regular storyline. It represents a moment in my young life when I “snapped” mentally, and briefly lost grip on reality.

Patpong Teeters on the Edge of Greatness

Hey friends, how’s it hangin’? It’s been a week since my last report on the recent recovery efforts in the three red-light districts in BKK. This week I’ve got more updates about Patpong, or as I like to call it, The Pong, or when I’m feeling French, L’Pong, or when I’m singing in the shower,

Happy Friday, mongers. It’s a magical day for me, Bangkok Seven, because several businesses on Patpong Soi 1 are set to open today, including a trio of gogo bars run by the King’s Group. I can almost taste the lime in my San Miguel Light. A full report on the state of these bars is

State of the Red-Light: August 2020

If you’re one of the five people who regularly read this blog, you’ll know that I—Bangkok Seven—am not a reporter. I don’t do “journalism” in this blog. Rather, I regularly shit onto the internet whatever happens to cross my mind that week. But these are strange times, and strange times call for even stranger mutterings.

August 7, 2020 By bangkok7

Happy Friday, internet. Time to kick back, put your feet up, and enjoy a well-deserved couple days of R & R. Or if you’re a whoremonger like me, 48 hours of shameful depravity. But for now, here’s another installment of my prolific, self-published, wildly unpopular novel, The Suburbs of Babylon… “Chapter Nine There is a

Seven’s Levels of American Tinder Hell

August 2, 2020 By bangkok7

What’s up, gents. So today is my release date. Out of quarantine and back into society. Into the wild. Into the red-light. I’m sure I’ll have a lot to say about it next week, but in the meantime, here’s a semi-interesting distraction… During my long sojourn in Los Angeles, I didn’t do much. The governor
