Thailand Problems: Part 1

Bon jour internet, J’mappelle Seven. If you’re one of the 10 people who read this page regularly, you’re probably thinking “Aw, no, not another series!” Maybe I missed my calling as a network TV show creator, because I can whip out series ideas like nobody’s business. Here’s the next one coming down the pipe. I’ll…

Thai Therapy: The Cure For Unemployment

Greetings from a beachside hotel in the greatest country in the world: Thailand. Seven’s on vacation this week, so fingers crossed that this flimsy wifi can handle the photos for the articles. This week’s frowback was initially a request from a reader back in the spring of last year on how to find work as…

Seven’s Ten Top 10: Finding a Thai Wife or Girlfriend

Thailand Problems: An Accidental Ode

Howdy-ho, gents. Seven again. Comin to ya between pints in Patpong. In my life as a Bangkok whoremonger, I’ve often thought up sweet, gogo-inspired poetry whilst sitting stage-side in a red-light bar, but I usually forget the thing by the time I sober up. For today’s Frowback, I submit the first one that I was…

Verse of Vice: a Red-light Rhyme

Happy Friday gents, it’s Seven again. I’ve got another ditty for you. It’s been on the internet for a few months already—I think over at Sweet3Mango. I submit it here for your enjoyment (or loathing, and either way I couldn’t care less), along with the old intro: “Seven is a jack of all trades. No,…
