how long do you have until your next ‘commitment’? until you have to actually be somewhere, and do something? check this with yourself at every free moment you have, it feels like you’re growing time
I really don’t want this section to turn into some sad little diary of all my cuisinal rampages around London like some kind of Evening Standard columnist homage (luv u Grace Dent), but I ate proper good munch this weekend so follow suite. Darjeeling Express in Kingly Court serves up killer Indian food from a kitchen run only by women with no prior experience. The beetroot raita is pinker than lipstick in the rain and they serve strangely random but propa good venison meatballs. Up in Hoxton Square you’ll find the Petit Pois Bistro, which means foie gras with rhubarb, and chocolate mousse that GETS it, all to the soundtrack of The The and Fleetwood Mac.
Smell always seems to bring bad news. I should do one where it’s more positive. Not this week though, yardies. DEAD STARFISH EVERYWHERE COS OF ALL DAT NUTS SNOW.
Don’t be a spanner; go listen to Emma Tanner. The third year Central St Martin’s student is putting on a one-woman show (I think it’s about furniture) at a gallery in Dalston that’s really just a flat that’s been converted by someone who clearly meant it when they said they’re gonna “do” East London.
For more cavorting of an artistic nature, check out RA’s Open Saturdays. On the second Saturday of every month the Green Park gallery put on free (FREE! F-R-E-E!!!!) workshops run by artists (ACTUAL ARTISTS) that you can go to and learn stuff from (SKILLS, TRANSFERABLE SKILLS, DO YOU HAVE ANY FUKIN CLUE HOW HARD THEY ARE TO COME BY THESE DAYS!??!?!)
‘Black Boy Meets World’ is the debut album of Danny Watts, released last year on Jonwayne’s record label Authors Recording Co. His cathartic rhymes and DGAF production have hypnotised my Spotify fingers into pressing repeat much and often. He made it in a week, what you done?
A couple days back Ms Peggy Gou Gou Gou please take off your Shoe Shoe Shoe released a new EP ‘Once’ on Ninja Tune, catch her on the flip side at Needs x HeForShe at Oval Space this Sunday. Aside from featuring performances from B Traits and everyone’s favourite Smack City graduate, Jackmaster, the event will host panel discussions from music industry playaz, tackling the hottest topic since Scotch bonnets had the mic – gender inequality.
Someone high up at Nokia must be on a LOT of shrooms right now, because they really believe we’re gonna ditch our beloved Apple touch-screens for them. Their 2017 reboot of the iconic 3310 was pretty pathetic, evident from one of the THREE WHOLE selling points being “you can play Snake” (I mean fair do’s tbh but not the point). Anyway, NOW the Finnish phone company is bringing back the 8110 ‘Matrix phone’, and it’s all 90s nostalgia and special springing mechanisms, and all this hype about it having 5G, and TechRadar acting like this article is somehow necessary. Guys. C’mon. It looks like a fucking banana boat.
