Oddendum: A Sevenisms Glossary

Happy weekday everyone, it’s your man Seven, reporting from the heart of the gogo. For this month’s Oddendum, I have something particularly odd and overtly endum. Over the course of the past year, I’ve invented some words that as far as I know did not previously exist in the lexicon. Mainly out of laziness, I…

Verse of Vice: The Long Road to Thailand

What’s going on, reader? How’s life treating you? It’s Frowback Friday, and even though technically this isn’t a Frowback, and even though I know you don’t like poetry, I just had to post this. It just appeared this morning on my laptop. I must’ve really tied one on last night, because I don’t remember writing…

Shameful Habits of a Bangkok Bachelor

Happy Sunday, intrepid net surfer. You’ve found your way to Bangkok Seven’s weekly column. Today’s offering is a confession of sorts, but it’s also a celebration (confelebration, copyright BKK7). I confess that, as a middle-aged bachelor, I have not adopted the kind of self-care that is usually taught to husbands by their wives. And at…

Some Bangkok Gogo Girls Part 5: The Ices

Hello from the red-light trenches. I’m Seven, and this is a re-post of a previously-published piece. It’s Part 5 of the ongoing “gogo girls” series, and the last one that qualifies as a frowback. Either this Sunday or next, I’ll post a freshly-squeezed brand spanking new one. But in the meantime, here’s this oldie but…

The Red Light District: A Beacon of Feminism

Well hello Internet, what’s shakin’? It’s your man Seven, back with another one of those block-rockin’ blogs. This week, I turn to my softer side—or harder side, depending on how you look at it. In our modern lexicon, a word that I’ve always loathed was “feminism,” both for its meaninglessness and its ludicrous hypocrisy. Meaningless…

Some Bangkok Gogo Girls, Part 4

Hey everyone. It’s me, Seven. How’s it hangin’? Everything copacetic? I hope so. Listen, it’s Frowback Friday once again–that time of the season for reposting blogs that originally appeared elsewhere on the interweb. The good folks over at BKKNites had the temerity to print this as part of my Gogo Girls series last year. I’m…

Some Bangkok Gogo Girls, Part 3

Well hello again. It’s Frowback Friday, which means another installment of Seven’s Bangkok Gogo Girls series. This was previously published over at BKKNites and received no small amount of enthusiasm from readers. Literally tens of people commented. OK I’m exaggerating but I’m sure at least ten people read it the first time around. Shooting for…
