    Come on - imagine liberating that thing from the right wing millionaire's clutches and whizzing around the Moorlands Estate banging out ska, dancehall and reggae. MUCH more fun.

    The power lead wouldn't be long enough....you'd go silent 3 metres out the door...

    It would be pretty special if you had some drugs before you started off :D

    Nothing I ever did on drugs was ever pretty special...which is why I don't take them anymore (aside from the odd puff here and there)

    Taking a weird Hawaiian themed DJ booth for a ride on mushrooms would definitely be my idea of fun :D

    Well, you've missed your chance, cos you said no....

    I know for a fact I am parking it somewhere warm when I DJ there...

    They didn't tell me I'd be able to take it for a joyride. I really didn't fancy playing the Village crowd but be sure to post up when you're playing and I'll pop down if I'm around.

    noooooo! That's the bus I take on the (very rare) occasion I go up to Oxford Street.

    (very rare) is probably why they are ditching it...

    He has a clothing line which could be why they were wearing similar clothes

    Can't see the disrespect personally, this was quite acceptable behaviour in the olden days in a number of venues I frequented.....

    ... or it might be to break up longer journeys into 2 shorter ones and create more revenue (as they did a number of years ago).

    arse... had planned to maybe use it tomorrow. 159 it is then.

    I know he has a clothing line.

    I still don't see what is cool about two geezers stood arms crossed infront of DJ booth wearing identical gear (which was blue jeans, alpha industry bomber jackets, and Docs)
     
  18. Nanker Phelge

    Nanker Phelge Monkey Boy

    .....but I am not cool or an icon, or anything...so perhaps I just don't understand it, cos I aint exclusive enough....or something....

    To me that's spoiling the vibe for the other DJ completely. If they were dancing that would be a different manner, but what they were doing sounds rather intimidating to both the DJ and anyone wanting to come up and talk to them.

    That is what it looked and felt like (and it was a female DJ)

    That makes it even worse.

    Your conversation has reminded me of my new favourite DJ, from a visual/ good vibes point of view at least. We were recently looking for some light & uplifting house tunes to play in the background while cleaning & tidying up the flat, and we came across this DJ and ended up watching him play for a good 15 minutes. Clearly enjoying the occasion, and moving to his own tunes in a rather hypnotic way :D

    This is the reason I supported changing Carlton Mansions into work units. If Brixton us to be entertainment zone then people should be rehoused somewhere else. Mixing different uses maybe fashionable urban design but it doesn't work in practice.

    In the later years the market became a problem. When I first was there the Granville Arcade was a market not a foodie entertainment place.

    Cyndi turned up when it was being "regenerated" again. First time was Brixton Challenge when it was renamed Brixton Village.

    Granville Arcade was open Monday to Saturday with half day Wednesday. Usually closed at six. Closed all day Sunday.

    So easy to live near by.

    In later years I started to object to shops in arcade getting drinks licences as the change to entertainment was starting to cause problems.

    I could see the way it was going. Its why I have every sympathy with Sleepless in Brixton. Some of us lived in Brixton when it wasn't fashionable or hip.

    When it became fashionable long term residents were supposed to put up with extra noise and disturbance. No one asked them.

    I remember several years ago trying to explain this to Cyndi. Like the fact then that some people had lived in the flats above the arcade for years. She didn't get it.

    If Cyndi makes money out of playing music for the new demographic good on her but what concerns me is that traditionally Brixton wasn't just an eaterie and entertainment experience it was a mixture of residents/ retail/ entertainment.

    That's quite a remarkable interpretation of what's been said there. But, really, do you think it's OK for two burly blokes to stand right in front of a female DJ when she's playing, and if so, why?

    If they did it to me, I'd tell them to shift their arses.

    It shouldn’t cost more due to the newish “Hoppa” fare thingy. But it’s annoying because I used to be able to get the 3 all the way to work if the Tube was closed.

    The congestion on that last stretch into Traf Sq has caught me out so often I'm almost relived the No 3 is stopping a couple of hundred yards sooner; miss the stop and you can be stuck for ages, won't let you off. New last stop is by Whitehall Place, I think.

    This revamp of bus routes is a consequence of the two rides in an hour thing that Sadiq brought in. On stretches of some routes there are like 60 buses an hour as diff bus routes converge, esp. nearer central London. The idea is to reduce costs, pollution and congestion. That's the plan anyway ..
