Well spotted, a Grapple Fan eh?

 

It was compulsory to watch wrestling, on television, in my childhood household.

Thanks.

There must be more to this story because the Twitter account would work from anywhere in this world. And he had lots of followers. It seems all posts are deleted.

The website still exists https://www.stickboybkk.com/

Never visited that website, until now. But I noticed that the most recent posts seem to be 8-9 months old.

I liked the website to inform myself what was going on in Bangkok nightlife. The problem with his and other Twitter accounts was for me that there was just too much. Obviously it's nice to see from time to time a beautiful girl. But with Twitter it was 10 girls, 10 "I have a beer in xyz" and one news message. At least for me that was a reason not to follow him (and others) on Twitter. On the WWW it was easy to just scan the news and look at anything else on demand.

I used to get dragged down the Fairfield Hall every Tuesday to watch it live as well.

Hilarious to see the old ladies having a go with umbrellas. Mick McManus was one of their favourite targets...

I'd say he set himself up as an alternative to Stickman, not as an anti-Stickman.

 

Now who remembers the notstickman website 'looney'?

Perhaps Stickboy is one of those effected by the incoming PayPal changes next month.  There will be lots of people who work online that will leave because they cannot draw down their online income via PayPal if residing in Thailand.  Simon 48 is one example (but he has alternative payment solution in place now).  I am also effected by this.

He left Thailand a couple of days ago according to him for good.

Why? 

 

Did he chicken out? 

 

There is really no excuse for ever leaving, once you are here.

That's an understatement.  Stick really went off the deep end on the bar scene.  Claimed all the girls had HIV and all the farang that went to those places were STD riddled drunks and scumbags.  Talk about alienating your audience.

There was a time a looooooong time ago when Stickman wrote about fun in the bars. That is why many of us read what he wrote. And then he changed and many people didn't read him anymore. And then Stickboy came up, IMHO better than Stickman ever was. Later Stickboy also bought the domain Stickman.

And, then what happened....?

IMO stickboy was at least ten years to late to the scene to have enjoyed it properly. The bitterness and annoyance exhibited in his social media was a result of knowing that.

Really?

I enjoyed nightlife in Bangkok since about 1995. Obviously it changed, and many years ago certain things happened which mostly don't happen now anymore. But I think pre Covid anybody who wanted to have fun and who was not too stingy could have a lot of fun.

I heard about wild things which happened before I arrived in Bangkok. I am sure it would have been exiting to experience that. But I can't say I feel like I arrived too late and missed something.

Where and when did Stick ever claim all the girls had HIV? he would not have gotten access to bars for pics for one thing if he had, his stickman weekly was mainly promoting nightlife.

Stick tracked him down to some northern town and he fled the country to China

I quite enjoyed his content. I found some decent restaurants and watering holes based on his posts. But when your income comes primarily from advertising bars that are no longer allowed to open, you're not going to make much money and I guess 2 years was long enough to wait.

 

It's very weird how he disappeared so quickly without warning and a lot of the content on the websites disappeared as well. I guess the full story will come out sooner or later.

No loss to anyone with a modicum of common sense and knowledge of Thailand. Just a chancer intent on earning baht by any means in my book.

Sometimes all four!

But as his twitter posts seem a bit angry, I'm thinking 1. girl problem.

good point,

 

if you go to his website, he stopped updating news stories 8 months ago, so something must have happened then, probably took him that much time to call it quit, smart move IMO

Maybe just his Twitter account then, as I don't use Facebook.

Sounds like some of his recent posts on Twitter were angry maybe for the reason he suddenly left, but for the last year+ I've not seen any negative ones on Facebook. If you have one other than recent post it I'd like to see it
