    Good job OU. I reckon those slacking Mods should give you a job

    PS: You have to close the other thread

    So anyway, is Coldharbour Lane open again after closing this afternoon at the Camberwell end due to gas blast which resulted in me having to walk from Camberwell back to Brixton?

    Crown and Castle opening on 19th April - good news for Orang Utan - it will have loads of ALE!

    I paid 50p for a pack of small green Rizlas in Coldharbour Lane today.:eek::eek: Some people are taking the right piss.

    I thought it was about to fuck it down with rain a minute ago, the sky was so dark. But it's just a pathetic dribble :(

    i saw a cheery and colourful sign in Loughborough Junction that said 'Warrior Pop Up' - is that a reference to an old pub? It looks like an old pub. Anyway, I couldn't see inside, so I don't know what's going on exactly, but the windows were blacked out with posters advertising the Seven Bridges project, which is some kind of arts thing to regenerate the area. Renaming Loughborough Junction Seven Bridges seems a bit estateagenty but if it's to do with the arts, maybe something interesting will happen.
    Here is their website:

    I saw that today as well. Made me smile. :D It was in the windows of the old Warrior Pub. I wondered if they were going to have a pop-up bar for the day or something

    You're joking. We had a right shower up on the Hill. I only realised 'cos I heard it smashing on the windows

    They did this last year....must be the same thing. Doesn't seem like a year since the last one! There was a little street party and music on Cambria Road, near the Cambria pub, plus some stuff going on in Wyck Gardens. Didn't get to the Warrior though....

    A few years ago when there was flash flooding on Brixton High Street, I got home (I was living just up Tulse Hill at the time) having cycled through millions of gallons of water and torrential rain, and the pavements were dry :confused:

    It IS an old pub - formerly the Warrior, latterly the Junction. Sadly empty since they coverted the upstairs and rear into flats about 8 - 10 years ago (?). No prospect of it ever being a regular pub again unfortunately.

    Was it a sunny day? Maybe the scorching sun had dried them? :confused:

    I think Editor's got a write-up about it somewhere, but I can't be arsed looking for it. You'd probably find it if you googled though

    I walked down Electric Lane today. It stinks of piss. It's about time they did something to clean it up. Not sure what though

    I couldn't smell anything.

    New Spanish eatery being fitted out in Market Row, be a while yet though.

    It reaches us quicker 'cos we're up a Hill. It's a bit like tall people knowing it's raining before short people ;)

    Why do we need a new thread each month?

    Well done to OU for at least linking to this one at the end of the last one, but is a new one really required?

    It makes things easier to find Onket, especially when the "search thread" function wasn't operating

    The downside of the hot sunny days is the wafting smell of shit around the tube station crossing? Where does it come from? :confused: Does someone take a dump in the bins or something?

    It's mostly on my front gate :mad: I'm thinking of fixing up an electric fence tbh. Am fucking sick of having to go up to some bloke pissing and saying "Excuse me mate, but that's my front gate you're pissing on and I'd quite like to get in it" :rolleyes: Although it is quite amusing seeing them embarassedly waddling down the street with their cock out afterwards :D
