Re: Nottingham

Don't suppose anyone fancies a pint or two over the weekend at all? I know there's the acoustic alldayer thing in Sheffield and I might go to some part of it, but just wondered if anyone fancied a drink.

Re: Nottingham

I didn't really like the Ned Ludd, I just thought it was a bit wanky. Table service in a pub is a rather weird concept too me. It's expensive too, if you're not paying attention. It amused me that a lady in there had ordered drinks without paying attention and was astonished it was £6 for a half! Th...

Re: 'Orrors

It's been ages since I've posted in this thread, I've seen no end of horror movies in recent months. The horror channel on sky is a great source of low budget great things, and classics that I missed first time around, for example Lair Of The White Worm, which suprised me by being a much stranger fi...

Re: New Donna Tartt book.

I started this Friday evening too, and have just cruised through the first 80 or so pages without really trying; it's very promising so far. I'm probably one of the few who enjoyed The Little Friend, I like the Southern gothic of it, but it's not a patch on The Secret History of course. Pleasingly t...

Re: poems we like

Saddened to just about the death of Seamus Heaney, a poet I've had a love for every since we studied some of his poems at secondary school. Which in itself is impressive since most literature we were thought at school put me off the authors for years. Here's his poem 'Digging'. One I learnt off by h...

Re: Nottingham

There's some plans gone in to the City Council this week to demolish Junktion 7 and develop around 100 student flats on the site. MORE MEMORIES CRUSHED. It's not suprising, sadly. Everything is going to be student flats soon; except when the numbers of students applying to university continues to d...

Re: The Football

Blackburn Rovers How will you do? I think it's going one of the two extremes this year, I'm hoping we'll be top end of the table, but the turmoil that seems to continue to envelope the club is probably going to mean another season spoilt by the owners and their massively headscratching decisions.

Re: Nottingham all-dayer, 14th September

Just bought my ticket! Can't wait. What an amazing line up (as per usual)! Edit: I'm being dead posh this year and staying at a hotel 10 minutes walk up the road. If I walk back to the hotel at 2am how likely is it that I'll be stabbed up? You'll be totally fine, Dan. Quite a few people live up tha...

Re: Nottingham all-dayer, 14th September

Have had work time off approved (unlike Michael) and will book tickets sometime this week. I would echo what those two have said; although I'm not organising it, familiarity with the Maze tells me that it won't take many more people than the Chameleon holds to make it dead busy. That, the fact the t...

Fucksticks, I'm working that night an' all. Flipping typical that is.

I'll just have to try and book some kind of annual leave and make sure I get it. Perhaps it can be a siblings birthday that I've forgot about or something.

Here's a review what I wrote too.

Apologies for spelling errors, I was a bit tired when I wrote that. Sorry about the length too, but I didn't think "It was bloody ace, and you're all flipping lovely" would really cut it as a review.

Re: Indietracks 2013 - Nottingham railway station closed!

There was a lovely little bit on the local news about how the local train spotters have been bus spotting instead. I think it's lovely and glad that they can make something out of what is a bit of an inconvenience for people to say the least. The train station in Beeston seems really confused with p...

Re: Indietracks 2013 Photos and Memories

How about some themed tours in the museum? afterall it's what we are about at the railway. I think this is a sterling idea. I'm only speaking for myself but if you put a little theme tour on with a voluntary donation or something I'd more than happy to contribute. Also, it's really nice that you co...
