Where do you stand on the North/South divide?
Seems to cause lots of dispute round here...
Bedministrators - reprezent!
but this is the arguement rumbling on round here.
As far as I can make out when people talk about how great the South is all they do is refer to the Tobacco Factory (wooo a bar, well done) and proximity to town (great, if only town wasnt shit).
But it's all about BS6
that is pronounced Asdal.
what is there in the south anyway?
gloucester road = the best road in bristol.
so perhaps I should be ignored.
you're still totally right
Farrington Gurney, Chilcompton, Radstock or Peasdown St John?
so i shall cling to this pirate ship of Bristolness with you.
the best road in Britain.
(that is quite possily nonsense, but you get the idea).
Meat from Bob Werelocks, 2 nice bakeries, a weekly farmers market & A PIE FACTORY THATS SELLS THEM THROUGH A HATCH. Also, Arf & Ale's greasy spoon does an excellent fry up for about £3
in the south now but I'm going to have to say north, just because of Gloucester Road. mmmm, The Breadstore, mmmm
what a joy.
about the spanish peasant bread.
this thread is making me bristolsick.
apparently the Cat & wheel has new ownership too (I know it's not really gloucester road).
seems jolly nice, so no complaints so far.
and the (rigged) thursday quiz?
it makes me finish 6th most weeks.
never been to the quiz so not sure. Def still has grubby good times, tasty fosters and a maygay quizzer.
And Moribund is in there a lot.
of 12.22am. It kind of takes you by surprise.
I used to be in Team Falcon, but I believe they disbanded a year and a bit ago.
Do they still have the £1 rolls? Please say they do.
Not sure if the new folks do them. Will scout out and report back.
an integral part of any C&W trip.
Our team name changes from week to week, though we had a fairly long stint as 'Pauline's Pens'
re: the rolls - thank god
*wipes sweat from brow.
the croft. gloucester road. my allotment. the farm! its great.
North all the way baby
I was told there was a two year waiting list! I didn't wait.
yes. I could be self-sufficient as we speak.
you still exist :O
where you been sexybund?
but found it very tricky with no allotment. So came back to DiS. May be down the Thekla NYE...
Thekla is now whack. Actually whack. I mean come on...what kind of a venue lets Fortune Drive play an all ages show in the afternoon for the kids and one in the evening for the "rest" of their adoring fans. The "kids" arent old enough to know any Stereophonics so what are they gonna get out of FD.
and not at all like the coral.
but have few/no other options currently. I am trying to remedy that. Hoping a mate will cave into pressure and just have a house party.
book read at bookbarn methinks
as long as it's properly policed
in the House!
I've had the pleasure of living north and south. It's that gloucester road & Picton street vibe that makes north Bristol a whole lot better than south.
There are less parks though, that's a bummer.
is your name based on the Alan Partridge episode where he is on the Wheel of Death!?
but via a tenuous pun on my surname that was created in about 1996
just thought i'd say that.
I'm also doing some 'recording' in Bristol in the new year as well.

take this job and YOU will be the WAITING LIST
it hurts sitting on this fence
contingent on here isnt there?
I Shall be drinking in Bristol on Friday, prob gonna end up at the academy methinks!
You havent responded to my email about being our drummer. Consider yourself now bottom of the list of potential drummers.
Which also keeps you top.
I got speaking to some mates the other day & we are gonna try & get something started up ourselves. Will have to wait & see how it pans out, i.e if they can still all be bothered in a couple of months. I know I will be but u know how it is.
Thanks for the offer though, i may look u up if your still in need of a drummer early next year tho.
surely Gimme Shelter upstairs at the Hatchet (if it's on)
not at the Cooler on a Friday?
I prefer GS
are DJing this Friday OMGOMGOMG
If you use Virgin Mobile, you got free guestlist for two and two free drinks. Went. Had drinks. Left. No disrespect to B&S/Snow Patrol - I'm almost curious to know what they'd have played (like the former, not a big fan of the latter). It's just that... Bristol Academy is the shittest place on Earth.
you, but I'm pretty sure that was last week. And if that wasn't enough tickets to Boys II Men at the Academy are also sold out.
what about David Gest and COOLIO @ Colston??? Please let there be tickets still
and it takes place on April 9.
...after a few
also runs stutter (y)
to Swindon a few weeks ago for the football.
it was pretty horrible.
Both the only girl in the world who I genuinely HATE and the loveliest, prettiest, sexiest, funniest, most intelligent and downright coolest girl in the world both live in the aforementioned excuse for a settlement.
The town itself is a fucking joke, obviously.
and all the way up Glos Rd to the beautiful alcholic market town of Thornbury.
I love bristol, I wish I was there now :(
The funniest place in Britain.
That sounds a mean thing to say. Unless you've been there.
Just an unrelativistic north.
That'll be me. I live more or less on a building site. But I'm right near everything. Including the site of the forthcoming arena... oh.
i vote north, what's the borderline? the river? I only cross it to go to work. North = fun, south = goodmorningtvlicencingcanitakeyourlicenceorreferncenumberplease
where to move to so this thread has been useful, thanks! Well I say "decide" like I have a raft of options, I don't, I'll go anywhere that'll have me really. Let me live with you and I'll be your butler.
I love it all.
Oldfield Park represent!
still in bath, or have you gone back to the east?
p.s. im starting to regret turning down uea :(
legally required to write it out in capitals every time??
I think I'll allow this to continue.
Not welcome. Not welcome at all.
