arh sorry! I'll know next time!
didn't realise the carnival was on
Parking chaos approaches in my manor - starting from Weds, they are doing loads of works on various roads meaning no parking for days at a stretch on about 40 roads close to Clapton station - which means moving your car to a road that isn't being worked on and doesn't have parking restrictions I've moved mine early doors - threats of removal and fines all over the place my road is still packed with cars
road work update - saw a car removal lorry thing in the road this morning - spoke to one of the parking czars they were there to move the cars from one side of the road to the other side - so they could tarmac one side - then they will move the cars to the newly tarmacked side and do the other side of the road - CPZ is coming as well which is good news since we are one of the relatively few streets in Hackney without a CPZ , which makes parking a little difficult sometimes
Just been to the opening night of this and it’s really really good. Need to go back when it’s not rammed.
A “Bash The Rich” march in 1900s Hackney?
And a thing about the peace/CND sign being agreed/adopted in Hackney in 1958:
Flashing the peace sign in Finsbury Park
Here they come...We all knew they would...
Sign the Petition
"A planning application currently being considered includes..........[guess what?]........... 10 luxury flats with retail space underneath. Traders – and the 60 plus artists in the studios upstairs – had already been told to leave on December 29 because of the redevelopment plans."
Ridley Road Shopping Village: Market owners working to STOP closure

The sad story of Fred Demuth – Marx’s son in Hackney
A “Bash The Rich” march in 1900s Hackney?
I never usually recommend bars as I generally hate them, but i make an exception for Helgi's on mare street, a few doors down from the Dolphin. They have kind of made a berlin-style punk dive bar.... real friendly and fun, and not ridiculous prices, dj playing good punk/glam etc, open till 2... it was a good night out, I recommend a visit.
yep mates of mine run it. great spot.
were you there yesterday? i popped in for half hour at bout 10 ad then again at 1. didnt see you....
Yeah! From about 10 till closing! It was some friends putting on the night so it was about 50% friends there which probably helped it be a good night.
Dunno how we missed each other.... I guess it was pretty busy, its pretty small tho... was sat at table in front of decks mainly
And the people who run it do seem great, if its the people who were behind the bar?
it's the tash dude and the witchy tattoo woman. they live upstairs as well. they are very nice.
i was working across the road and popped in for break beers, stood by the bar towards the back.
I appear to have missed this personalised, pretenious approach to buying and selling property in 2015.
I always wondered what Alessandra the artist was doing in a Victorian house when a brutalist concrete block would suit her so much better.
being as a 1 bed flat in a victorian house in hackney can go for up to £500k, she'll pocket *at least* a million quid for flogging her home
i would advise potential sellees therefore look for at least £650-700k from her.
I'd be happy with one of her paintings as long as she takes my towerblock flat of her in the most brutalist manner.
which famous hackney location is this?
Is it the Temple you have constructed in your garden to honour me, Pickman's model ?
Hmmm, can't say I recognise.
Is it an extension being built on it?
its not the tunnel man's place is it ?
yeh it's mole man's place
That's very cool.
noone told me that the Shanghai dim sum place on kingsland road had shut down to become a "creative hub"
I guess I can't have been there for a long time.
i would have preferred another coffee place to a creative hub
Didn't know it had become a 'creative hub", but it closed at least six months ago...
