sorry. needed saying.
with miniature flags in
I would like to laugh in the face of gravity.
but suspect you are joking.
I think it's just about long enough now.
one of the ingredients in Rum which means you have an imperial smell under your nose. Met the guys who makes it. He was handing out free gin and tonic outside a Brighton pub. Which was maybe the least surprising place to find him really.
its fairly redundant bothering to read the rest of things in the thread
pricey, but pretty stiff and smells of sandalwood, which is a good smell to have on your face.
read somewhere that toilet sealing wax is amazingly strong and cheap, if you can get past the fact that it's usually used for toilets
the Bounder's really good, but the wax in the tin goes harder as time goes on so becomes a bit more difficult to apply.
Don't make me choose...
will cede my recommendation
Needs a good hairdryer to melt it though - one with an attachment that creates a narrow blade of air.
moustache wax is very real, and essential if you want a handlebar moustache, which i do, as it turns out
I need to make an effort more
which is a shame, as it's biologically identical to a handlebar tache, which is: a good tache
I think A-i-C has been living in the provinces too long.
It is way more prevalent in the States, it's a staple of American BBQ. There's nobody as provincial as a Londoner, especially Johnny come lately blow-ins from the North
It'll be too soon.
bonus points for it being in a colour that doesn't 'go'
i mean, i like loads of things in this thread, but i irrationally scorn people who don't realise that liking a large proportion of them, collectively, is a sign that maybe you should have a sit down and think about life.
people having a bottle of wine is bad now?
Baking in general
And thought-to-hologram communications telepath web and instead walk around clutching the vintage aluminum MacBook pros and drinking skinny lattes and wearing Team GB t-shirts... and they're going to get laughed at a lot
because it's <<naughty>>
you know the ones
Lurking like a total Gherking.
like internet forever
that will never make any money but doesn't need to as your husband earns enough. Probably selling the aforementioned fucking cupcakes.
i feel part of tru movement guys <3 u all
I even approve of some of them.
on your bedroom wall
i would love to be a house husband so much
Think 6music XFM just about pips R4 for this demographic.
So guilty of this...
have you had the cherry cola one (might not be cherry cola)?
it tastes exactly the same as the fizzy cherry cola bottle sweets.
it is incredible
that's sort of the point.
it's only when you start using this as a checklist for your identity that it's MASSIVELY GALLING
seriously, my friend had a keep calm and carry on print on their wall about 4 years ago and it was great. it's the single shittest thing in the world now though, and impossible to understand why it was great
(although I was living up in the north east, and EVERYONE up there had them in about 2004/5)
and only managed to take it down about a week ago
i've hated it for a good three years
'cause she's french and she likes that kind of thing. I quite like it on the fridge actually. Maybe it's because they're not everywhere over here. Familiarity breeds contempt etc etc
but only to cover up a massive hole behind some netting.
it's next to my parents' house
Is it about things that are excellent?
but also things that we feel self-conscious for liking because of associated 'lifestyle' cliches.
At least that's what I think is going on
I don't like most of the things in this thread, I thought we were being vitriolic? Oh balls.
it's a kind of post-modern mix of shame, pride, self-awareness, whimsy and irony from the kind of people who wouldn't think twice about describing things as post-modern.
You mean the former Brazilian President or is this another reference?
well varying levels of greatness, but w/e
I've never signed up to anything remotely related to lomography. It's confused me for the whole day so far.
(but not joining in)
it's repulsive and meaningless
Some pleb who works there practices his accordion in the stairwell at lunch.
Working in fashion AND playing the accordion.
dare I ask?
and on the bottle will be something like 'FILLED WITH APPLES AND STRAWBERRIES AND SUNSHINE AND BABIES' SMILES. DOES NOT CONTAIN NUTS, SORRY SQUIRRELS!'
but that's fucking awful
I thought I loved that. Now I still love it, but I hate myself. I need more cynicism in my life.
we wouldn't really need the thread
i despise people who /hate/ most of these more than people who like most of them
but if i see other people liking it I just can't stop the eye rolling. What a hypocritical DICKHEAD
but trolls in their little caves fuming that someone dares to have a moustache, or assuming that anyone who reads certain books is "faking it" or whatever.
i have no examples of this straw man that i've just made up
and it was full of people saying "no, this isnt a real thing" and some people projecting their insecurities and then i got bored and didnt go back
are just in denial
I'll be there pottering about at some craft / design fair, sipping on my flat white, making little notes in my moleskin, all the while peering through my tortoise shell glasses and thinking WHAT A BUNCH OF TRY HARDS.
My beef is with faddishness. People can like whatever they want but I just wish there was some consistency with it (applies to all of life not just East LDN type stuff)
that question is obv redundant as you've brought evidence. But I still can't relate to that I'm afraid. The people who do the things on this thread would be TERRIFIED of being considered racist.
the closest they get to exploring non-dominant culture is an indepedent coffehouse
those full-colour print, brightly coloured tshirts of ganesh
'90s boybands, early '00s hip hop artists
also helps if you have a bit of money in the bank
that's it. those are the only boxes i tick. i'm far too self-aware.
i've got secondhand books (used to get gifted them as a child, couldn't actually afford full price, new ones - still can't now, really) and i'm lactose intolerant. i still have dairy sometimes, i just end up shitting loads.
I was being playfully mocking. I think.
am I wrong? How old are you?
older than shrewbie, icwar and still_here. not as old as creakyknees.
so that reply is of any use.
Get mad about something that matters for once. Like that shop The Kooples.
Which can only lead me to conclude that you're the mad one.
I am mad at The Kooples a bit but i'm not entirely sure why
just consumed with self-loathing
that so closely resembled a blueprint for a Half Man Half Biscuit album :D
guilty as charged for about 20 of these, have a feeling you're failing to distinguish between genuinely nefarious twee iconography and nigh-on inescapable bourgie-upbringing affiliations
^^^sentences like that, btw
how can I live a more authentic existence
For him to read in 20 yrs on I love the noughties
ironically overly-bright lipstick
or indeed any American breweries
only know one family who held out and never bought one though.
where the station names have been replaced by literary or pop culture references.
in fact anything with zombies
I even grin at a Tom Savini cameo in a non-zombie/horror movie but seriously, these guys need a break now.
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1362058/ good grief
We have a chance to create something beautiful here guys.
Open all the threads.
Open ALL the threads.
yeah, the same one
we're being faked out of this world, nothing's real anymore
