BANGKOK: -- In a sad and surprising post, Stick, the blogger behind one of Bangkok’s oldest expat blogs, Stickman Bangkok, announced that he’s packing it in and calling it a day after writing about Bangkok’s naughty nightlife scene and publishing glamour photos of bar girls for 19 years.

 

Many of the city’s expats (or, c’mon, sexpats) will feel a bit lost without his weekly updates about girly bar gossip and photos to peruse over their morning Nescafe (or, let’s face it, beer).

 

The blogger, a man from New Zealand named Nick who keeps his identity semi-concealed and boasts legions of farang male fans, moved back to New Zealand a few years ago after selling his site to an investor. He remained the site’s main paid blogger, using his network of bar bosses, regulars, and naughty nightlife insiders to get up-to-the-minute info about the the city’s go-go bars and underbelly news.

 

It worked well enough. It was hard to tell he wasn’t out trolling Soi Cowboy, Nana, and Pattaya’s Walking Street himself to dig up the site’s info. But, on Sunday, he wrote that the person he sold the site to can no longer pay him so he’s quitting.

You could just reprint any of his old columns from the 80's. Nobody would notice.

 

You could even invent Trink bots to write his column automatically. Burma Shave, TIT, huMAN natURE, Lek at Cowboy 2 is worth a try out, Balloons at Rainbow 3, 1950's New Yorker style............ and repeat the formula.

 

You would have to prime the bots not to repeat his early stuff about underage girls though.

 

Trink's column defined anachronism.

 

(You're not Trink, are you?) :ph34r:

True dat

Wow, don’t you people know a game of poker when you see it. There is way too much money invested in the Stickman website.  Stick was not getting paid so…… run the math. I think he will be back fairly soon before the website devalues too much.

If Trink is still alive, it would still be impossible to "bring him back" as he is permanently stuck in the 1950's.

Still alive, his weekly book reviews are in the same paper that published his Nite Owl columns.
