    Yeah, that's quite literally the worst thing there.
    Meat Liquor is good, as always. I'm a fan of Cronx beer, so their tap is good. But yeah, it's a totally random collection of shit. Some good, some bad. Some very good, some very bad.

    I didn't even rate meat liquor. Not tried the cronx, I'd rather go to a proper pub I think.

    My one experience at Meat Liquor was dire. Terrible service, awful burgers, fries and it was dirty.

    Matthews Yard do much better burgers and fries.

    Car crash. Nothing too serious, just a prang between three cars.

    it's back on facebook, my mate has linked to it. 5pm - 9pm, top floor centrale car park for £0 pounds.

    it's next Friday though which is gonna cause me some issues I think for Babysitter to get Mrs U out too.

    Maggot if you want to drink in Boxpark, the only place for me is the Cronx Bar or to get some wine from the wine and cheese place run by the burger people at matthews yard.

    never been in a the main bar as it looks bobbins

    also yo sushi now seem to have a unit which seems a bit far removed from the small/medium sized outfits that have been there up to know

    also agree re meat liquor, burger was crap when i went and it was fucking freezing, had a much nicer burger from a place downstairs

    Aw, I'd quite like that but have no real experience. The hours are most favorable indeed.

    Actually those hours would be amazing. I'll look into it. Maybe some of my previous jobs are relevant.

    That's what I was looking at.

    Cool. Get on and apply then :)

    I don't expect to be directly involved in the recruitment, and I guess it depends on who else applies, but I would have thought that your local knowledge/experience and your arts background will be of interest, particularly since your arts background is different from the arts background of any of the other staff, residents or trustees. Can't speak for the volunteers, because we have lots of those, so there might be one who comes from a heavy rock/punk/whateveritis background and with experience of television production :D

    ATOMIC SUPLEX Member Since: 1985 Post Count: 3

    Well I suppose I do have art qualifications (but only GAD) and a degree in visual and audio technology. I also made several arts, and history programmes while at ITV. My background isn't so 'rock', that's kind of the foreground. My previous work has always focused on the arts, history, science, and current affairs (usually local). It's only lately that I feel stuck in a rut editing dull throwaway mindless TV shows.

    It's probably worth at least having a go, though I suspect there will of course be people far more qualified.

    I mentioned your rock "foreground" because, although not directly relevant to either job, it might add some points of interest. The centre administrator who is just leaving us is a painter and, in fact, she has decided to give up admin work and concentrate on her art and on teaching art. She is now one of the "residents" of the Halls, and has a studio there.

    So, don't underestimate your wider experience/appeal.

    Besides, I don't know how many applications there will be for part time jobs on living wage, so always worth a punt, I would suggest :)

    Good luck!

    Oh hold on, just seen 'pro rata' so I assume it's actually only half the cash stated. Sadly it might be quite hard for me to make that work. I will see.

    Sadly my contempt for TV people and the industry does not outweigh the pay. Six weeks freelance work would equate to an entire years pay. Such a shame, as I really would like to switch to something slightly more worthy than four people arguing over dinner, or minor celebrities sat in front of a green cloth talking about slipping on a banana in the 80s

    I walked through the Boxpark yesterday, with the intention of getting something to eat, but it was horrible. The atmosphere, I mean. Noisy and busy and not at all relaxing. So we kept walking and ate at Wagamama instead.

    Returned for a drink, though, and sat in the Cronx bar, which I must say is nicer than I expected.

    Was surprised that it all closed at 10:30pm. We had to push our way through barriers to get to the toilets, which are in the main Boxpark bit and not in the individual units (obvious, perhaps, but it didn't occur to me).
