Happy Friday, internet. Here’s the 2nd half of Chapter 13 of my less-than-inspiring novel, “The Suburbs of Babylon.” “Rosarito is a paradox.  Seasonally it is jammed tip to tail with college coeds drinking, dancing, whooping and shtupping with wild abandon.  The sight of which is positively energizing.  However, the town itself is nothing more than

‘Sup reader, my name’s Bangkok Seven and this is my blog. On Friday’s I like to harken back—to ‘frowback,’ if you will—to past points of pertinence in my life, especially ones that helped lead me inevitably to this blissful existence in Thailand. For the past several (and next several) Fridays, this journey has come in

Happy Friday, one and all. I don’t know about you, but I’m getting sick of wearing a mask. A decade ago, if you’d have told me that in 2020 the entire world would hold it’s breath for a whole year, I’d’ve said you were looney. But here we all are, in the same global asylum,

Well it’s Friday once again, and a weird Friday at that. We here in TLOS are experiencing a rescheduled Songkran holiday, sans water fights and everything else that makes Songkran Songkran. But it’s a government holiday, so instead of working I’m going down, down, to Pattaya town with a loaded god complex and a pocket

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

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.

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

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

It’s Friday, reader. My last one in quarantine, and my last one spent outside the red-light since the first week in March. Below is the next chapter of my semi-fictional semi-autobiography, written and self-published around a decade ago. But the observations contained therein are still relevant—especially the ones about LA strip clubs, and especially given

It’s Friday in Thailand. Seven’s first Friday in Thailand since the beginning of March. Sure, I’m spending it in a quarantine hotel room that feels smaller by the day, but at least I’m here. I’m home. Home sweet home. And to celebrate, I offer another installment of my tedious tome “The Suburbs of Babylon.” Specifically,
