Australia Day ClubPub this Wednesday, 30th Jan. Ok so we’re going to be a bit late, Australia Day is on the 26th, but better late than never! Poke’s always had a good amount of Australian employees so were celebrating the founding of their land down under :) We’re moving slightly away from Shoreditch for this one to the Pleasure Unit on Bethnal Green Road – Map. Not been before, but apparently it’s a bit retro and psychadelic, also they’re about to re-fit the place so it doesn’t matter if we trash it. It used to be a gay pub called the Cock & Comfort, what a class name! Get yourself into your tightest shorts & cork hat and head on down, should a good night.
Also I think we’re bringing back by popular demand the GIF Jockey 2.0, so if anyone has an amusing animated GIFs send them my way!
Huge cock shaped skyscraper development in Shoreditch! Dave spotted this piss take fly poster outside our office this morning. As Dave points out:
“Someone has gone to a lot of effort for a knob gag. Good on them!”
I quite agree :)
While I’m on the subject of knob gags, here’s a nice cock t-shirt that the Roope sent me.
Here’s the scene out of Superbad where Seth describes his childhood cock drawing problem. I got sent this a lot, since making Cock-a-doodle a few years back everyone thinks that I had a childhood cock drawing problem…
And finally a very enthusiastic fan of Superbad has made this series of animations based on Seth’s penis drawings. Good work and cheers Roelant for the link.
A few weeks ago Ant asked if Me & Nicky would customise some Oh Baby baby clothes in any way we saw fit (to use in their shop window), of course we jumped at the chance! We ending up making them into baby clothes monsters, above is my Victorian punk rocker and below is Nicky’s Convict muppet. Not sure if it’ll be what they were after… but we like them!
Oh Baby have a shop just down the road on Brick Lane and an online store here, if you have a Kid you should check them out, they have some really cute stuff.
A friend who I’d best not name snuck into the under construction Bishopsgate Tower the other night to take some pics from the top (no lifts, had to climb all the stairs…) Well worth the effort though, looks great, and a long way up!
You get a good view of Shoreditch Houses swimming pool from up there:
Last night ClubPub was a lot of fun. I was quite proud of my Chainsaw-cock creation above! Below is a selection of photos taken from Marc Davies Flickr set. The electricity showrooms floor was amazing.
Today is Boring (video rental shop in Shoreditch) is organising a ‘Zombie Walk’, a flash mob convergence of hundreds of Zombie-dressed participants trudging through the streets of London, ending up in Hoxton square for zombie movie and DJ action. Sounds great, more info on their MySpace page.
Eleanor has bought a house and is leaving us… Â£320 a month room available at the end of August in converted factory space in Shoreditch, just off Kingsland Road, right next to the canal (10min walk to Shoreditch center). It’s 4 bedroom, sharing with 2 hirsute English gents and a Japanese girl (smokers). It’s is a great space to live, surrounded by lovely neighbours of similar age and persuasion. We are looking for someone chilled and up for a laugh but also someone who pulls their own weight, does their own washing up but doesn’t live by rotas. The room is like a blank canvas with a double bed, wooden floors and beams – it’s not a huge room but one that you can do what you will with. If you are looking for just a room then sorry that’s just not us. But if you are looking for a friendly house who really enjoy hanging out together then drop us an email.
Leila gives me and Donny a quick lesson on how a ladies minge should be groomed. I can’t recall now why we needed to know this, but that’s the OAP for you!
At the local kebab shop this morning, nice…
Noott has started a blog, I’m overjoyed, shame it’s only about fringes:
“Three things convened which led me here. One, I was given a digital camera for Christmas which meant that – two, I started to take hundreds of pictures of any and every social event or non-event. Three, I started to notice a particular MySpace way of taking a stylised picture for a profile shot… that lone kid in room performs a kind of arm out higher than head, look up and pout into camera thing.”
Loving her description of Shoreditch House:
“People – you – vaguely – recognise – but – only – remember – who – they – are – by – identifying – their – ex (Lisa Snowden) or people – you – vaguely – recognise – but – only – remember – who – they – are – by – a – process – of – elimination (Dave Gorman)”
But good to see she hasn’t lost her taste for the lash:
“By this point I had lost the power of vision and therefore have no idea if there was any fringe about the place but the evidence on my camera this morning does seem to indicate men of a long rock hair persuasion.”
