Have a GREAT weekend.
Apparently not: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJuMQ85PS40
I've not watched it but I hear it's pretty much utterly terrible
Least sexiest: The mahogany counter next to lime green wallpaper
Flakes is by the director of Heathers?! No wonder Netflix is desperate for me to watch it.
but i would be too ashamed about going in there
these timely reminders of why east london gets stereotyped so much
said inside-outside sarcastically, referencing his knowledge of meowington's past tendencies to purchase overpriced toast. Knowledge that he gained from the popular music website 'drowned in sound'
works out to be like spending £2.70 a day on cereal.
Speaking as a friend of course.
get a bankloan or sell shares, you dicks
Its been opened by a romanian crime network who plan to take the crowd funds and retire on them in a penthouse in Ludbekz
hardly anything new
It's the fetishisation of something that's supposed to be a staple innit?
And imagine the sort of belms who are going to be in there.
Quick question to provoke a bit of needle: Which DiSer do you reckon would be first to visit?
i looked at the crowdfunding page and now they're on £265 so it's going really well!
these things have been big in places like Brooklyn and Portland for quite a few years. I went to one in St. Paul in 2009. Mad how slow our capital is on the uptake. There even used to be a couple in Manchester but they've long closed.
Is it the mark-up? How is it any different to ordering a couple of slices of toast for a quid from a greasy spoon that would cost you 10p if you made it at home? Can't be the novelty factor - people eat cereal for breakfast every day, there's nothing kooky about it.
If you think this is a dickish idea, you ARE the dick
Where are you finding this bargain toast??
I don't think I've seen you ever get angry before
It's ok, I've calmed down a bit now
Everyone involved in this is a complete moutard
but I'm not at home :(
know your customer base - in this case, a bunch of stupid Shoreditch cunts who will gladly pay for any old shit
(alright paddy mcguiness)
you know, cause paddy mcguiness also does peter kay wrong
hope this will be open late night
I'd go for cereal with Jedward. Didn't know things had gotten so bad for them they needed to crowd fund though.
AND YOU GET TO KEEP IT!!
starting a post-gourmet burger joint. Supermarket burgers cooked from frozen served at ironically high prices; can probably exploit hygiene legislature by claiming to be a satirical project instead of a proper eatery
that's, kinda, my idea.
i was thinking more 'no frills, no bullshit, festival food'. not craft, former or artisan. not 'ethnic' or 'world' or exotic.
like cheese sandwiches (white bread w/ cheese slices or normal cheddar), beans on toast, etc. that sort of thing.
like a greasy spoon?
dr oetker is pretty good stuff
they're serving a dr oetker with a salad and a drink for £4 and people are complaining?
so one of those? Sounds good to me
what a fucking bellend
As part of my attempted new "stop getting wound up by things that don't affect you" attitude but it's just too difficult. Fuck these guys and fuck the vapid circle of bullshit that it's the most recent example of.
but I couldn't tell you what about
Why don't they go and in bars if £9 for a cocktail is too much for the area. What a ridiculous interview question
"hey mate, that £180 jacket seems a bit dear for this area doesn't it? think about it"
"oi lady, that £2.50 coffee has a huge mark-up - you can get a jar of Nescafe for a £1 across the road. think about it"
AKA LEAVE THE CEREAL CAFE ALONE
but immediately surrounding brick lane isn't.
it's not like people in milwall are coming to brick lane to eat a £2.50 snack.
and £2.50 for a snack isn't remotely newsworthy
he could lampoon them for so many things but goes for a stupid line of questioning trying to be controversial and then goes and asks some more stupid questions in other shops with no clear conclusion or point to any of it.
could have just said we need to sell at a certain price to cover our overheads and stop going out of business. Our customers dont seem to mind and everyone seems to be happy with the service. We are surrounded by shops offering cheaper alternatives so there seems to be something for everyone.
then that old gal came on and said 'sounds good, dunnit?' which was brilliant
Only a twenty minute wait, nice selection of brans in old clay urns and shakes, barely broke a 20 between two of us, ****1/2
Get a fridge for milk, few bowls and spoons, couple of tables, up Asdas for a few packets of cereal, open doors. Half a morning's work there.
AND oojimi's thread, PUT TOGETHER
I find her pretty trite and shallow, to be honest - trotting out the Tory party spin line 80% of the time.
Some of her musings on the Coffee House blog are a bit lowbrow but... it's a blog. Seems to speak an awful lot of non-partisan sense. Probably the only Telegraph writer to actually respect Ed Miliband and write about him fairly. Writes frequently fantastic articles about mental health. Big fan.
Think you're pretty wrong on the Tory spin line shiz. If it wasn't for her writing for the Spectator and the Telegraph you'd barely notice she was a Conservative by my reckoning. Her boss, Fraser Nelson, on the other hand appears to spend 80% of his time being a one-man Tory PR machine.
you'd barely notice she's a Conservative?
meaning that if you read her pieces in isolation (like on a no-branded blog) you wouldn't readily and frequently be able to deduce she was a Conservative.
