Edinburgh Tips

March 22, 2008

Mama Said

I recently went to Edinburgh. I have some amazing tips for if you are going. Mama Said is a shop located half way up Cockburn Street. It has an amazing selection of soft drinks, as well as an ok selection of booze. I recommend the soft drinks though. They had some crazy stuff! I had a can of ice cream soda, which was incredibly sweet and had a stange ginger beer after taste. Wish I had taken a photo of the can, but I didn’t. Anyway, the owner of the shop was saying that he discovered the drink when he was down in England buying a car. It was two cans for a £1. Recommended. The other tip I have is for taking the train to Edinburgh. Normally I take the bus as the train is super expensive. However, at the weekend if there are 4 of you going buy your tickets at the train station. There is a deal where it is only £20 return for all 4 people! Baragain!

Blue Monday Owners Club

May 27, 2007

Now, every once in a while you find a website out there that is a bit strange. This is the Blue Monday oweners club, where people take a photo of themself with their original 12″ copy of Blue Monday by New Order. It’s simple and easy. I like it.

A wise man once said

Skateboarding, every winter i lose my pop. Well, mainly because I stop skating for a while. Anyway, I was having a conversation with a friend about it today and here is his adivce. Unedited.

“bend down as far as you can and go fast and there shall be no worries said the skate doctor….what tends to happen is you come out after not having skated and you feel ropey or spindly…you dont know if you can still do it stop..start again…meditate for about 10 minutes before you leave the house (honestly)..visualise every reason you love skateboarding(this eliminates any feeling of moodiness or anxieties you may have hungover from the previous day which can be destructive to a good days skating if theyre allowed to play their part)…stretch your body for at least five minutes..get outside….walk for the first 5 minutes dont skate…step on the board…take a small push….then a couple more and first thing to do is slalom and turn gracefully and slowly for the first say five minutes ( especially better if you have a street with chewing gum and stuff on the ground which you have in abundance) get to a smoothish larger area as soon as poss. push a bit bigger and do couple big carves..try crouching especially as this enables the masterful feeling on yer board…become the amazing learned skateboarder you always have been and you know it.. then push fast with large pushes as far as you can stretch…no small pushes….then crouch right down and snap that stick up and itll come up like ron jeremy in every scene hes ever done….always remember to end any skate with some more slaloming…its like putting the grace to bed..this is my tecnique and ive used it since forevern and it never fails..pass it on..its the word of a master said the bigheaded at ex skater haaarrr”

I need this mug, especially for work. There are some other classic Penguin novel mugs out there as well. I wouldn’t mind the A Brave New World one and also A Clockwork Orange. These three books are favourites of mine. I wish they would do a The Day Of The Triffids one, that would be sweet. Anyway, you can buy the mugs from www.drop365.com.
