Editor's Note: Where Have All The Bloggers Gone?
When I started this website about Nana Plaza, and Soi Cowboy, Werewolf was always losing his wallet and cell phone, Bangkok Bad Boy was bringing dirty girls to short-time hotels and writing about it, Mango Sauce was talking about who-knows-what (I rarely understood what he was saying, but he had interesting stats.)
Pattaya Ghost was getting in trouble with bar owners for commenting about something or other that they didn't like.
Dean Barrett was either photographing a friend's wife upcountry (Fon), or hanging out with his favorite Coyote dancer (he even went to her university graduation,) or just getting wonderfully distracted by some gogo girl who walks by thinking he's too old and Dean thinks that she just hasn't realized their short-time love yet.
Elephants were seen at the entrance of Nana Plaza at night, or walking through Soi Cowboy looking for tourists to pay to feed the animals.
I never did really know if the blog Bangkok Girlfriend was written by a real Thai girl, or some white girl, or some white guy. The English was too good, talking about things that guys wanted to hear.
I've forgotten what twofatfarangs were writing about. The Big Mango Bar use to be inside Nana Plaza, before moving down into my old neighborhood on the sub-soi, and their blog had the address of 'Farang Speak 2 Much.' Hog's Breath was a neighborhood bar inside Nana Plaza for expats, until Spanky's took over the space.
Baron Bonk would write about what he saw when he made the rounds of the Bangkok clubs. No more.
Dave The Rave is still giving us updates on his blog and managing Angelwitch. Stickman is still doing his weekly column on his website with photos. (The Not Stickman anti-Stickman site came and went with some uproar.)
Bangkok Eyes is still going with its commentary and photos of entrance ways.
Many of the blogs about the nightlife of Bangkok are gone. We need more blogs to be written on this subject to provide a more rounded impression of the scene.
Does anyone know of any good blogs that are currently being written on the subject of the nightlife of Bangkok, Nana Entertainment Plaza, Soi Cowboy, and Pattaya? Let me know.
