No, the trendy moustache I had at the time would have been laughed off the stage, considering the beardzillas that were parading around there. A mate of mine entered after growing a beard for two years especially for it. Didn't win anything though.
it might have gone on holiday
My friend lives there, it has a great tattooist, and some wonderful restaurants, it also has some really shit ones.
A quiet day there today, then.
They look like refugees from an apocalypse movie
Brighton is the third best place in the world in my opinion.
Only the third?
I stayed in the Holiday Inn a couple of weeks ago for a work thing.
Stepped into the lift to my floor and Chris Eubank was stood there in a massive white shirt, black tie and skintight gold leggings.
He said hello and it was all I could do to not piss myself laughing.
I have poor survival instincts.
Oooh, out there tonight,,any ideas for a couplie night out. Staying on the front
Atomic SUplex are playing at the Prince Albert by the station.
Gen!!! Do i get to see the helmet
Ha, excellent, game on
well of course.
I've heard it's full of deviance.
Turned up and fucking missed it!!! Outside scoffing brandy now though.
Get back on stage
Coincidentally, so does mine.
I think it was the S, S, Pebbles & S. that were the attractors.
That's been painted over now - the Peel, I mean!
I'm not sure if it's depressing or pleasing when you read a thread about your home town, and realise that your knowledge is well out of date.
I had a similar thing when I tried to find a pub in Soho on Google Street View recently. Place had changed so much I got lost.
i moved from london to the outskirts of brighton in 2005. never once have i wanted to move back.
I'm thinking of moving down there - it's where I went to Uni and it's always been like a second home for me.
Was talking to my Gran on the subject, and she summed it up perfectly, she said:
"Brighton, is like a tonic".
And I was all a bit stunned at how simple and apt. It really is!
Fizzy, bitter and over-priced?
Is it bash Brighton month or something.
One of the comments
Resident records, the Duke of York picturehouse, the new street food fridays, the quantity & quality of pubs & venues, the Dome, the blossoming food scene, the possible regeneration of London Rd, the seafront & north laine on a weekday & the general atmosphere of slightly down-at-heel seediness: all good.
The prices, the rent, the crowding & stag/hen parties at weekends, the psycho cabbies, litter, lousy housing stock, increasing problems with homelessness, alhocolism & drug addiction, the slow decline of Western Road, hipster smugness: all bad.
I still love the place, but moved out a few months ago (sick of rents flying upwards with no end in sight).
I'd say that the city is becoming more rapidly & noticably a place of the very rich and the very poor. The last two or so years in particular.
just revisiting this thread.
greebo was fairly spot on and this was a closeish second.
it was OK but not somewhere I want to go back to
