or the police.
A lad walked into the pub tonight wearing a chainmail vest. Proper medieval chain-mail.
Over that he had a leather motorcyclists jacket. He did not have a motorcycle.
That's all good, I and my drinking buddy were quite impressed with the chain-mail really. My mates a welder, the mail was pretty cool.
We were less impressed with the heavy leather jacket over that. Less impressed again with the adidas tracksuit bottoms he had on.
Then our knight in hipster armour asks my drinking colleague (who was quite drunk) "are you ok man?". The fucking temerity of it. He just just looks at me and we both burst out laughing.
We both grab our drinks and have a swig.
"Basic" he said.
We laughed again.
Then chain mail guy left, on his horse, or motorcycle, or jogging route, or whatever bullshitmobile he sauntered in on.
not much of a chainmail vest if matrix managed to throw a pipe through it.
I remember a thrash metal gig where circle pits were the main feature. The gig was followed by a disco. The slowest grooviest circle pit formed to Booker T and the MGs Green Onions.So, at this point maybe I should make a new thread. But tonight was particularly hilarious, and good fun, it must be said.
A bunch of punk bands played, I simply wasn't feeling it tonight. Too loud, I'm too old. So I walked past, looked in, wasn't into it, and walked to an old man pub down the road. Then I got tired of the old men in the old man pub and their bullshit, so walked back to the usual.
And the loud bands had finished, so BANG, whatever DJ they booked for after those hardcore punk bands, decided to play "Don't stop me now" by Queen, just as I walked in. Quite an intro, I was pleased. Danced like a dickhead. Piano Rock, said a grey haired man at the bar, I said, how do they follow this up? I'm Still Standing by Elton John. Then Love Shack. The dancefloor was full of beautiful people having a beautiful time. In the background, was punks and cunts, who didn't know what to do with themselves.
It was actually astounding. I stood by the door, watching all the kids having a great time. Genuinely, these people were loving it so much, and I didn't want to ruin their fun, that they thought I was a bouncer. I was enjoying watching them enjoying themselves, but I didn't want to join in because I'd just ruin the buzz with my shitty dance moves
But all the black-shirted, tattoos on the scalp and neck guys that were there to see the earlier bands were just not knowing what to do with themselves.
Then they played a bit of The Prodigy and everyone got involved. And it was beautiful.
Are you going to go to Isla Nublar? I’ve always wanted to go.It took the full 24 hours from when I got up to when I got to my hotel room, but I'm now in bed in Costa Rica.
