Hands up who likes pubs!
Hands up who likes Brighton!
Hands up who likes errr live music in pubs in Brighton!
If your hands are still up, then you might like to go to www.showyourhand.com
Show Your Hand archives videos of a series of brilliant, tiny, intimate gigs held
at the Hand in Hand - Brighton's smallest pub.
They've had some top people through the door, British Sea Power and Tom Brosseau
to name but a few and it's run by my friends Matty and Joby.
Show your face in the pub if you're ever in Brighton too, it's well worth a visit.
That's what we are now, a nation of mixed leadership.
A mongrel breed of parties, opinions and thinking.
Is it the best of a bad situation?
Who knows. None of us can say for sure.
All we know is that there are some interesting times ahead.
Anyone else been watching that BBC4 series 'The Beauty of Maps'?
Really nerdy, but brilliant nonetheless.
Anyhow, I just found this crazy detailed hand drawn map of London.
It's from a project called 'The Island' by artist Stephen Walter.
Go fullscreen and if you zoom in far enough I think you can just about see our Carnaby Street shop.
My 'design dad' Nick Hand is coming down from Bristol today. I love having him around.
He brings knowledge and experience (and croissants).
I could probably write a top 100 things I've learned from working with him...
But, for now, here's my top 10:
1. No coffee, no workee (same goes for cake).
2. Never rush. Take time to consider everything.
3. Just because you did something yesterday, doesn't mean you should do it today.
4. You can do anything, even single-handedly.
5. A deadline is a deadline is a deadline.
6. But keep calm and carry on, no matter what.
7. And listen to nice music along the way.
8. You are neither superior or inferior to anyone else.
9. Be nice and nice things will happen to you.
10. Don't try to reinvent the wheel, just spin it a bit.
howies wouldn't be howies without him.
I still haven't sold this. But I want it to go to a good home, so im sticking it on here
one more time...
Offers in the region of £400 would be good (although it is valued at more than that).
So feel free to tweet this, re-blog it, tell your friends, tell your brother's mate's cousin's
buddy who collects 80's bmx's preferably.
It’s a 1985 Skyway Street Beat in the Green/Purple/White colourway
(as modelled below by the lovely Lydia).
An awesome bike, as ridden by Scottie Freeman and the late
great Neil Ruffell back in the mid 80’s. Original Dia-Compe brakes,
Skyway EZ bars, on Skyway Tuff 11 mags etc..
Looks like it was made yesterday. All built from original 80's parts.
Now, I know this ain’t the Free-Ads, but If you want it, make me an
offer in the comment section below and I’ll get back to you.
You could be ‘cherry-pickin’ in no time.
