except for describing something as "Nathan Barley-Esque"
in Tate Britain the other week..
It wasnt planned
just seen he did one last month, sounds a bit rawkus for an art gallary haha
It sounds quite Barley when I see on the bill one of the DJ crews are called...
Clarky Cat DJs
And who became their king?
Only bloody Brooker himself.
= very Barley-esque.
brooker is simply over-exposed and his former fans are too fucking self-aware to bring themselved to like him anymore.
And his columns are just shooting fish in a barrel, followed by sychofantic mawings.
Maybe he's talking about the psycho fans?
it seems to happen more further into Hackney now. We went out to have breakfast in a cafe in Hackney Wick yesterday - the clientele of a cafe on a Sunday afternoon in Hackney Wick is pretty Barley-esque.
I didn't have the money for it anyway
of Vacuous idiocy running the length of Brick Lane, but I know what you mean about the triangle and its environs.
It's been the same with any number of areas in London.
Barley-esque people are the first wave of tourists, cultural tourists, who then move out when the second wave, young overseas visitors and weekenders from the home counties step in. Shoreditch is into the second phase of tourism and Hackney is already into this first phase.
And I'll tell you this - I will take Home Counties shit hipsters over the Essex Boy CUNTS that have descended on it ANY DAY OF THE FUCKING WEEK
It's horrendous, utterly horrendous. It's always a last ditch option - the few times I've been there recently has been in the company of well, someone of the second wave, and out of a misguided belief (not held by me) that Dalston was too twatty or skanky to have anywhere decent to drink to late on a Friday. Ugh, I hate Shoreditch probably more than anywhere else to go out - even Camden's better now.
now have a real undercurrent of agression to them now at a weekend.
and all the "next gen" games consoles.
Why are we still calling them that? NOW GEN!
while too drunk to read the screen of my iPod.
then used it to draw a massive cock on the road. Even more Barley-esque was my mate recounting this story in Vice but claiming it was him.
was not invited back.
Told the magazine I was writing for that I'd quit if they didn't give me a double page for an article I'd written about a band no one had heard of
only i knew they were gonna be pissed off, which is why i said it, only they probably knew that, and were pissed off anyway. which is cool.
my brother owned several 'decks' with fancy graphics.
so i rode downhill on a child's microscooter to get there
(disclaimer: it was an indiepop set, it was in edinburgh)
One time, i was trying to get up a curb, but my legs got crossed over and i fell over in the middle of the road, fully rolled. Ended up taking it back to the charity shop.
then got turned away.
That's about as barley as it gets.
Dead Jill Dandon
the ingredients where 2 pints of cider, it didn't really catch on.
or because it was just a large cider?
Nathan Barley is about 10% as funny as everyone says it is.
franky franky frank
on full volume while trying to sleep on a comedown. its a literal nightmare
to the "Terrorists are gay!" band, and failed to shout "Terrorists are gay!" at them.
The Old Blue Last is the scene of many a Barley-esque performance, I'm sure.
But what is their name? ARGH
by Bad Guys!
Without sugar. And scrambled egg and smoked salmon.
Actually, I did put one sugar in it...
and we watched an animated version of it narrated by orson welles for the first lesson, just to get us acquainted with it, y'know.
so anyway, i started thinking... orson welles, orson, awesome, awesome welles! and i said it a few times throughout that day.
i watched the episode of nathan barley where he gets the paint in his hair etc. yesterday, and was shocked to see him utter "awesome welles!" when he saw his hair.
I once did a 'fashion shoot' in the wasteland/tunnels that was under spaghetti junction. thats quite embarrising, the photos were even more so
