What’s up, everyone. I’m Bangkok Seven and this is my blog. On Fridays, I like to frowback to those days of yesteryear. When Thailand wasn’t even a thought in my head, and life was a giant, steaming pile of shit. We’re smack in the middle of summer, friends. That might mean something where you are,

These Fridays, they keep coming. Thailand remains shut, despite lying news articles claiming expats can get back (the waiting list for a flight is 2 months). I remain trapped in the hellscape of California, where 99% of the population are fucking retards and the only bright spot is easy access to wine. For those of

Another Friday, another week trapped in the US. At least this time, I’ve left the confines of Los Angeles to do some wine tasting in the Central Coast. This took me through Santa Barbara, where the following excerpt from my mediocre manuscript “The Suburbs of Babylon” takes place. I hope it distracts you even momentarily

Happy Friday, reader. If it is, in fact, Friday where you are. It’s Friday in Thailand at the moment. I’m not in Thailand, and it’s not Friday where I am, and I’m not happy. But Happy Friday to you, anyway. Below is the final segment of Chapter 4 (titled ‘Home’ and referring specifically to Los

Happy Friday, reader. At least, I hope it’s happy for you. As a Thai expat trapped in the US since March due to Coronavirus, I can say with confidence that I’m not having a happy Friday. I hate it here, and as the Thai government continues to extend bans on incoming foreigners for no good

It’s Friday again—not that it matters, since every day trapped indoors due to Covid-19 is exactly the same as the one before, except when Seven posts part of his self-published meh-moir, “The Suburbs of Babylon.” Today’s offering is a continuation of Chapter 4, titled “Home.” If you’re interested in knowing the continuity of the story

TGIF, everyone. Thank God It’s Frowback. Below is the continuation of chapter 4 of my blolific (prolific and yet still blows, copyright BKK7) novel, “The Suburbs of Babylon.” I’d say more about it, but 1—I know you’re just aching to get started reading, and 2—I’m too busy getting drunk in celebration of yesterday’s announcement by

Well reader, it’s another Frowback Friday. Frown-back, locked-down, and non-essential. If you’re lucky enough to be working, or living in a country that hasn’t gone full-fascist, congrats. But if you’re like me, you’re trapped like a rat in a cage despite all your rage, as our overlords extend and extend and extend again those decrees

But you are in for 5 minutes of alleviated boredom, because I, Bangkok Seven, have posted below part 2 of Chapter 3 of my mediocre self-published novel,

Greetings fellow quarantine/totalitarian/Orwellian nightmare victims, it is I—Bangkok Seven. Former and hopefully future Patpong whoremonger. Below is the first part of Chapter 3 of my ongoing Friday frowback offering better known as “The Suburbs of Babylon,” or the novel I wrote in my 20s and 30s that nobody bothered to read. I’ll be honest, it
