seems ok, plenty of worse places in England. like Crawley, Slough and Hull.
its called pompey
also: i went there once. was quite nice. its no brighton or even plymouth, but nice.
It's no Yate....
something that exploded once?
portsmouth is ok, some bits of it are hellish
skanky and crap. But it's the nearest city to where I live (the Isle of Wight) so I tend to be in P'mouth quite alot. It's more interesting than here. S'hampton's not too bad though.
for the first time in three years on the 15th February.
I'm bringing my 15-tonne fucktruck.
I spent 3 years in portsmouth at uni, good stuff. southseas good, has a really really good pitch and putt course. Clanfield, waterlooville and that way are a bit shit though.
I'm going back on the 18th for BSS, oh yes!
Are you stalking me? I used to live in Clanfield, worked in Costcutter.
I'm back for the NME tour. I'm so cool.
i lived with someone who knows you from school, you used to go round his house after school, so im told ^_^
Yeah, i knew a few other locals who were in that year at school too, Rosie Jones?
The world is crazy small.
its going to be some kind of reunion!
The Wedgewood Rooms was (and probably still is) the best thing about the city.
well Southsea to be precise and it's cool, the rest of the island is skanky and crap.
I don't know when I'm going back coz my parents have moved to Havant which is no good to anybody.
I enjoyed the car boot sales at the leisure centre.
the under 14's roller disco's at the leisure centre.
If you tried to skate you were sad, you had to stand in the corner and smoke FAGS.
was that what it was called? the big ugly carpark which was a listed building.
it was the place where the first cultural ice age video was shot... good times.
It's a shame it got pulled down. Seriously.
moved to southsea from mancs while i was still stuyding in london.
visited a couple of times. horrible.
wedgewood rooms is pretty decenth though i was refused service at teh bar. i was pretty flattered acutally considering im 26.
the second hand record shops are pretty good too.
and having a spliff on that fort thing overlooking the isle of wight was pleasant. but don't veer to far into Eastney. That was my big mistake
i lived there for nine years in fareham and it was okay.
to go shopping. It is indeed a dump. The Wedgewood Rooms is great though!
wedge + southsea seafront = good
all the rest = pure postmodern concrete jungle scum infested hellhole
north end road, if I can remember that far back?!
my friend Laurance did her work experience there age 16, I was soo jealous.
southsea during the summer is absoultely great during the summer, no uni, no students, sunshine, frisbee, bbqs and chiling. ah.
