    FREE STUFF!! This coming Saturday and Sunday, 2nd and 3rd, there'll be a lot of free stuff available at the place I'm moving out from. Vinyl, CDs, DVDs, books, comic mags, there's a huge pile of mags and books about Bowie and Morrissey/ The Smiths, including some collector's items. Shelving, both freestanding and those screw-together ones. A lovely antique writing bureau. Posters (comic characters, bands, etc). If you'd like to come along, and you don't know my address, send me a message. Other stuff available free at the weekend includes a full-length mirror on a moveable stand, a lightbox, and stuff old flatmates have left over the years, a couple of flat-screen monitors, some exercise equipment, there's an old PC that still works and two huge old TVs. Loads of magazines about superheroes that have some great retro-cover posters in, music mags, a whole run of a mag called Cult TV which was full of fascinating stuff about old shows we watched as kids. Posters as well, a lot of Morrissey ones and comic characters of course. There’s a gigantic poster of Cocteau’s Belle et le Bette. And superhero toys. And loads of drawing equipment (well, pens and pencils). I'll be in and out both days, doing last-minute stuff as we're due out completely by Monday. So if you arrive and I'm not there, have a pint in the Railway and try again after 20 mins. Oh yeah, bell doesn't work so bang on the door.
    As I don't currently have internet at the old or the new place (long story), I'll be offline when I leave work in about an hour but I'll check in the internet cafe tomorrow afternoon.

    A grand total of 2 people came round for free stuff yesterday, and didn't take much. We're meant to be totally out of the flat by tomorrow, so today it's all piled up in the back of the Railway, all there for free, so come on down. I've just about coped with donating 300+ graphic novels to a university and selling 3000 comics to my favourite comic shop, but it's going to break my cold, hard heart to shove all the above next to the bin tonight.

    We did just see you in the Railway whilst we stopped for lunch and almost took a few DVDs but they're still a bit on the young side for them. Could you take the rest to the Geranium shop tomorrow?

    Might do. The Railway were talking about leaving them there for a night or two as they're quiet at the start of the week. And I've got loads of other stuff I can put out. My big prob with Geranium is that they won't take books and I've got a load of good stuff they could sell - cult fiction, Python, Woody Allen, cartoon books, old kids annuals. But no, "We don't want books!" I've got a pile about 18 ins high of mags about Bowie and Morrissey, going right back to the early 90s. If anyone reading this is a big fan, let me know.

    I gave them a load of books a couple weeks f weeks ago. Also, have you asked my brother, he might want some music books?

    I'd have definitely been round for a look, but was away at End Of The Road all weekend. Finally home now and a bit broken. If you've still got Moz/Bowie books and CDs/records, I'll happily take them.

    Yes it was fantastic, but now I'm totally knackered - even after a decent night's sleep!

    Letter through the door to say that the water works at the bottom of Palace road / Leigham Vale are now extended to the 17 Sept - I expect more slippage as there doesn't appear to be much progress.

    If the works take much longer they are likely to get listed status

    I like the signs that say something like 'just because you see no activity on this it site does not mean that important work is not happening'

    My letter said 15th. The place looks so messy ATM. And it's busy all the time. Apart from the Hart which is now dead.

    yeah we got that.

    oh how we laughed.

    When they first came over last December when it flooded again they said it would take 6 weeks.

    Has the Coop's switch to 12-6 on a Sunday benefitted anyone? Presumably not anyone who wants a fry up on Sundays.

    Also- is there any more news on the White Hart?

    The windows are all painted up...maybe they're redecorating?
     
  25. Nanker Phelge

    Yes - I stay longer in pub before having to go to the shop.

    I don't think Carol Smiley's coming round. One of the contributors here said the last they heard the pub had been sold to a housing developer. A shame if it goes the same way as the Lazy Rhubarb.

    There were defo people in working on the upstairs over the past two weeks, and there has been some rumblings that the pub will re-open shortly (but in what form, and for how long, who knows?). Heineken have nothing to do with it anymore.

    Looks like village masaleh guys are throwing in the towel too...that and the shop next door owned by the same person.

    Humph. So there no decent takeaways in the area when that goes.
