yeah, east london is the land of MILK AND HONEY now.

1. pictures of people in greasy spoons (unless they are old men with amusing faces)
2. close-ups of flowers unless they look like genitals (arraki, it's fine)
3. very boring pictures of buildings
actually, urban decay in cf. to these things isn't so bad
but I quite like all that old Martin Parr stuff
lets not be rash
unless you live smack-bang in the middle of an unblemished pasture that's in a city centre, surrounded by cows shitting out Yeo Valley biopots 24/7, you're a total sellout.
I went to Newcastle once. Saw their football team play very badly, then I got drunk and someone tried to fight me because I pulled some girl who they were after. Woke up in the hotel bar at 7am with some Irish strangers. In retrospect, it was quite a good christmas work do.

people can fix up there own houses and quite frequently do.
should buildings be left empty then, instead of being converted?
as opposed to former council flats. you have no idea!
