Discussion in 'Brixton' started by Rushy, May 1, 2014.
Some even take photos.
I think that probably crosses a line...
You need a more subtle approach !
How do you know I don't have one?
Good question, i will get back to you on this
aha but you had a pushchair.. and we all know that having a pushchair in Brixton means you are automatically a "yummy mummy" and therefore a GENTRIFIER!!!
good question. we need to commission a study.
The study needs to consider how nicely the subjects were asked, I think.
we'll have to weight the responses according to pleasantness of request.
Part if me wants to ask about your methodology.... But I may be better off not knowing.
Don't know about that but I have resorted to removing my t-shirt in an hysterical fit of fury when asked for the millionth time why am I in the wrong toilets. Shock all round.
I am going to follow you into the loo and ask for my own amusement one of these days
FWIW a very stupid shop assistant assumed that there was a man in the women's changing rooms when there was just me. Granted, my hair was quite short at the time, I do have quite a square jawline, was more or less flat chested at the time, and to be fair I was trying on one plain white blouse and a few pairs of jeans (and taking my time as I needed to check that I'd be able to cycle in them).
Even so FFS! Apart from anything else, how many men are 5 foot and more or less pear shape?
Edited to add: sorry buscador I can't begin to imagine what it's like to get that type of treatment repeatedly instead of just once in a while.
That pub that I don't want to mention by name was fucking magnificent tonight. It really feels like the Brixton that I thought was lost forever.
You don't want to mention it in case hipsters start turning up?
This was 20 years ago yesterday. What a day. A 14 year old me makes a brief appearance in one of the crowd shots. Nearly a quarter of a century on and again we're having to fight the rise of racism.
Get yer easels out! Here's one for you local artists: The Brix Art Show competition invites local artists to contribute work on the theme of ‘Brixton: past, present, future’
It still has that 'old school/hidden secret' feel about it, like Bradys back in the day.
They had a fantastic reggae band there last night and the female singer was superb. The place was packed too - on a Wednesday!
You went to ravercise then?
All the way. I had my matching pink headband and leg warmers too.

Not that hidden or secret then!
Secret enough to make it more or less a locals only event - an increasingly rare phenomenon around these parts.
And very mixed too, something else that's becoming increasingly rare as Brixton homogenises.
Not really very secret at all seeing as it's been mentioned and named on here most Wednesday nights/Thursday mornings for the last few months.
Good job that I've never claimed that it is a total "secret" then.
Have you really only just discovered carto.metro?
And you call yourself a train fan
I've known about it for years, but decided I should let the readers of Brixton Buzz know about it too!
And then there's the equally wonderful Adelstrop Atlas.
So the new Lambeth Cabinet has been announced - http://www.brixtonblog.com/lambeth-council-cabinet-shake-up-creates-two-new-deputy-leaders/22751 and Sally Prentice is out
