'When the artists start coming, that's when you want to get in...'
GET TO FUCK.
Nauseating ad clearly aimed at yuppies (at least they're honest about that) and investment buyers (the inference is more subtle). No mention of local people except perhaps that they provide an interesting backdrop.
that video says everything about everything
deep in the shit
One of them actually said fashionability.
Surprised it's taken so long with Goldsmiths just round the corner.
its been waffled about for ages but thats the first video like that ive ever seen
I used to work in New Cross years ago. I was always glad to get the train and bus back to Hackney in the evening.
thanks to the east london line + gentrification just maybe the tables have turned!
Fuckin' ell, so many hateful things about that video.
It's "The apex of fashionability" apparently. Jesus....
Anyone know what is currently on the roundabout by the Birds Nest? I have driven past and seen what looks like an artwork. Some kind of human figures and a placard kind of thing. I haven't had a chance to see it properly.
A big new Jamaican-ish bar, restaurant and 'creative space' opening in Deptford, in the arches by the station, by Christmas (probably). Sounds good and not wanky.
WE ARE OPENING A BAR IN DEPTFORD.
so long as they have a veggie option or 3
I went past it today. I assumed it was something to do with Halloween, and paid it no attention.
I will check for you.

not an entirely new point, tbh, the logical conclusion of the trend ruth glass identified in the 1960s. see e.g. Is London becoming more like Paris? - FT.com and darren johnson Johnson warns London becoming like Paris | Housing Excellence
Don't tell me, tell Owen Hatherley
i'm telling you because you raised the point
you can tell owen hatherley
oh - but cheers for the recommendation of neville's novel.
Anyone been to the Farrier's Arms on Lower Road? What's it like?
My Deptford pal told me earlier in the week of a Costa Coffee opening on Deptford High St
he has just informed me it has been trashed and emblazoned with the words........
Round of applause to the culprits!
I've walked past the bar mentioned above, looks poncy and very nouveau Deptford.
The was a huge fire in Deptord Creek last night. On a boat called the Minesweeper.
Arts venue destroyed after 'massive explosion' sparks huge boat fire
Hope no one gets nicked for the party!
