Everyone here clear on where we meet tomorrow? I will be there by 6:30 at the latest.

Two yellow chalk marks on the lintel means it is safe to proceed.

So me, mark, Tim, Suzy, xyz - anyone else?! Come out! I will tell the pinefox.

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Wednesday, 8 May 2019 10:51 (two months ago) link

I'll be there!

Andrew Farrell, Wednesday, 8 May 2019 10:54 (two months ago) link

Yay!!

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Wednesday, 8 May 2019 10:57 (two months ago) link

I'll be there too! It's been a while...

Grandpont Genie, Thursday, 9 May 2019 09:36 (two months ago) link

Have fun guys. Didn't realise this was happening till just now but I doubt I'll make it from Bristol sadly.

frame casual (dog latin), Thursday, 9 May 2019 09:41 (two months ago) link

That's a shame, DL - which reminds me, I really want to make it down to Brizzle again soon.

Grandpont Genie, Thursday, 9 May 2019 09:42 (two months ago) link

Yes! It's been appx one year since we last caught up. Any other Ilxors fancy a trip to the West, I have a lovely blow-up bed in my living room to crash and I know the best place for pie and chips.

frame casual (dog latin), Thursday, 9 May 2019 09:48 (two months ago) link

Time to start another thread, DL!

Grandpont Genie, Thursday, 9 May 2019 10:34 (two months ago) link

Should be there around 6:30 or a bit before that.

Benson and the Jets (ENBB), Thursday, 9 May 2019 10:37 (two months ago) link

Me too!

Grandpont Genie, Thursday, 9 May 2019 10:44 (two months ago) link

I'm going to grab something to eat first (IIRC the food at Sam Smiths places is either not-good or just crisps) so I'll likely be there around the same time.

Tim, Thursday, 9 May 2019 10:45 (two months ago) link

Things that are good at Sam Smith’s pubs - architecture

Things that are not good at Sam Smith’s pubs - beer, food

American Fear of Pranksterism (Ed), Thursday, 9 May 2019 10:50 (two months ago) link

Unexpected nostalgia-suffused benefit of this venue: Ed complaining about Sam Smiths, even from halfway round the world. Sad you couldn't fit in an old socks reference, Ed.

Tim, Thursday, 9 May 2019 13:57 (two months ago) link

I’m here early

El Tomboto, Thursday, 9 May 2019 17:04 (two months ago) link

Me too! I am sitting at the dual level table in view of the door. Am earing a green jumper and grey jeans.

Grandpont Genie, Thursday, 9 May 2019 17:07 (two months ago) link

* wearing

Grandpont Genie, Thursday, 9 May 2019 17:09 (two months ago) link

Read that as 'eating' - worse ways to stand out at a FAP, I suppose.

Andrew Farrell, Thursday, 9 May 2019 17:46 (two months ago) link

We’re at the front by the door, for those joining

El Tomboto, Thursday, 9 May 2019 17:50 (two months ago) link

So great to see everyone again! Fueled in my case by Sam Smiths Extra Stout -- which is excellent, and any antipodean opinions on the topic are henceforth declared redundant -- a lot of ground was covered, including self-publishing, printing sets, neighbours, freelancing, typesetting, typefaces, journals, journalism, prog rock, Factory Records, podcasts, weddings, Bill Heine his shark and his cinemas, gullible housemates, Boston, Washington, Hackney, the military, the Tower of London, fishmongers, absent friends, internet factions, past FAPs, ILX history, football clubs and their ownership, cider (with or without sherry)...and...pause for breath, they were just the things I remember / heard.

Is there a name for the table on a table thing in the Blue Posts? You know, the little round table that's on a round table? Tiered table, if you will.

But anyway, where was Lou15 Jagg3r?

Grandpont Genie, Friday, 10 May 2019 12:53 (two months ago) link

delighted to say they are called TIERED POSEUR TABLES

mark s, Friday, 10 May 2019 13:07 (two months ago) link

and it was v nice to see all the tiered poseurs and and talk abt all these things :)

mark s, Friday, 10 May 2019 13:15 (two months ago) link

We also decided Portillo was good ;-)

xyzzzz__, Friday, 10 May 2019 13:19 (two months ago) link

and Danny Baker was bad!

Grandpont Genie, Friday, 10 May 2019 13:21 (two months ago) link

tbf "we" decided neither of those things

the first was unexpectedly announced as the CURRENT TANKIE LINE and the second was the mass judgment of twitter, raw but true

mark s, Friday, 10 May 2019 13:24 (two months ago) link

What is this "tankie" you speak of I don't understand

xyzzzz__, Friday, 10 May 2019 14:05 (two months ago) link

xyzzzz__, Saturday, 22 June 2019 07:32 (three weeks ago) link

Pretty certain the first Friday is the 16th, not either of the previous two when I'm across the Atlantic.

Andrew Farrell, Saturday, 22 June 2019 12:47 (three weeks ago) link

August is a bit of a mission, why don’t yall come to Cambridge

Rory end to the lowenbrow (Noodle Vague), Saturday, 22 June 2019 15:40 (three weeks ago) link

i preferred Cambridge when it used to produce lots of commie spies in the 20's/30's. its alumni have been a right load of punts since then :P

calzino, Saturday, 22 June 2019 15:44 (three weeks ago) link

I’m not an alumnus of anywhere, just a lazy East Anglian

shhh / let peaceful like things (wins), Saturday, 22 June 2019 16:16 (three weeks ago) link

It wasn't a swipe at thee!

calzino, Saturday, 22 June 2019 16:22 (three weeks ago) link

Didn’t think it was! Just giving my blessing to Cambridge-bash without feeling the need for jk emojis 😉

shhh / let peaceful like things (wins), Saturday, 22 June 2019 16:24 (three weeks ago) link

*indignant splutter*

imago, Saturday, 22 June 2019 16:29 (three weeks ago) link
