looks like being a proper lad with a proper haircut and proper tunes works then, eh!
Ee bah gum.
I think hes from Clifton? Either way, hes an embarrassment.
How bad actually is Clifton? I mean, if he from The Medders or Hyson Green then I could go with it. But the means streets of Clifton? Hmmm...
A place that returns tory councillors isn't normally the roughest place.
Clifton, in any other city, would be one of the very rankest areas but it's Nottingham we're talking about so... you've got St. Anne's, The Meadows, Radford, Hyson Green, Sneinton, Arnold etc. all battling it out for supremacy there.
As a result, Clifton looks alright. But by most yardsticks it's still pretty rough.
(although Arnold ain't that Rough, sure is no Bestwood/Top Valley).
Wasn't the estate at Clifton the biggest Council Estate ever built when it was made?
'Biggest council estate in Europe...' or whatever?
Wythenshawe tries to claim this as well
Don't make me wikipedia you again.
That was supposedly largest in Europe when it was built. I expect we have one in Birmingham too.
but Hyson Green was definitely an extreme model of 1970's council estating so I'd be more inclined to think it was Hyson Green that was the biggest at the time. It's certainly used in a few studies into the negative impact of that kind of architecture/living space on urban well-being etc.
I don't remember Arnold being nice at all, but I think I might be slightly tainted by the Marion Bates murder on that one...
and the ever reliable wikipedia (kind of) confirms it. Yeah, Arnold is by no means lovely, but it isn't at the same level as the other places. Christ I live in a shite City.
Roger Steel. Might move there just to vote for him.
If I'd known it could have been a ticket to fame I wouldve made a right deal of it
Pretty much the only time it's ever been on the national news (the Marian Bates thing), every story included the words "leafy suburb". You must be thinking of Sherwood, or one of the other 40-odd places in Nottingham rougher than Arnold.
''Ay up me duck'' is Nottingham.
3 EQs seems a bit much, however.
nice spot kik
2 people photographed together. Whole relationship concocted from that with fake sources and bullshit stories.
We all said and did stupid things when were his age. What is he? 14 isn't it?
my dad would've given me a clip round the ear
They shoot each other in Nottingham
"She looks miserable" = I can only pull fat girls.
"The roaring, sucking emptiness of their lives" = I'm upset because I work in low level admin whilst Bugg is getting paid to tour the world and shag supermodels.
"Good lord they're both so ugly" = I can only pull fat girls (not true in LBC's case actually, he's a looker that one, but the point strands).
"Always sceptical of these types of things" = I wish Heat magazine would set me up with a supermodel, but they won't because i'm a virgin.
"We all said and did stupid things when were his age. What is he? 14 isn't it? " = I'm annoyed because i'm old and the only women left for me are over the hill and too keen to have kids before their ovaries shut down.
"When I was his age, if I'd had the cheek to gallivant about, inflicting a collection of reactionary pub-rock songs on the general public..." = Only fat girls come to see my crazy 'math rock' band. I listen to Bright Eyes and eveyrything, why won't girls kiss me?
Another few pounds and you're toast
A partial return to form in the wake of a recent slump
*begins typing a note with sweaty fingers*
I keep forgetting that any negative response to celebs & celeb culture springs from jealousy
It was an open goal - what can I say?
and the trams confused her.
were the exact words
this reminds me of my best mate's brother who came up from Cornwall to see him in Manchester, and loudly exclaimed "What the FUCK is that" when he saw a tram.
Sure he's rubbish but they're just kids, who cares.
Jake Bugg has done absolutely nothing to be hated for. He's young, he's talented, he's harmless. Big deal.
It's more doctored offence to the supposed authenticity of certain people's "indie" sensibilities. Which is a much more unattractive proposition than any single note of music Jake Bugg will ever make.
His album's alright. Sure, it's not all for my tastes but for a teenager it's pretty striking and impressive.
people have been using co-writers since music begun. Elvis did, ffs.
Maybe go outside a bit and speak to some girls.
Then youre beyond help
What IS the problem?
Can we leave it now?
honestly, who gives a shit? i don't understand all the attention celeb couples get. so so dull.
Indie pretender who became popular.
as you were then
This big eyebrows trend is not for me at all.
might start a thread about it
Thought it just disappeared around the same time as Live and Kicking and that weird hovering head that used to advertise The Sun.
like the bushy eyebrows though.
I know he's still only a teenager, but he looks like a child.
