The Fawcett Inn

The Fawcett was always the place to meet people, always the place for DIY punk shows and breakbeat nights that blew your bollocks off, a place to have a great laugh and a place full of great memories and people. It was always such a vibrant pub full off wonderful weirdos, good music, a dodgy atmosphere and mind-bending drugs. It's where I met and befriended ALOT of the people I know and love now and it's a place that holds a lot of great (if slightly blurry) memories. Some of my memories and happy moments for anyone who gives a shit and doesn't wank over the Milton now...

    • Seeing Inner Terrestrials for the first time and bopping like a right cunt.
    • Meeting some amazing people (and some irritating twats!)
    • Will constantly screaming 'SAFE AS FUCK!'
    • Seeing Luke proper freak out on Salvia with those bloody bright blue stay press jeans on ;)
    • Special chips from next door with BBQ sauce. Always
    • Setting light to my hair when rich gave me the unknown pill. Waking up on Alan and April's sofa not knowing where the fuck I was or what happened or who'd taken my 20 eye DM's off.
    • Ed Cox/ RDF/the Extinguishers/Metropolitan Police Cervix/Social Parasites/The Exposed/Bunny..... the list goes on...

    • "Crumpled Morrissey" – the most unsuccessful birthday ever!
    • Giving John a lap dance.
    • Reading the Socialist Worker around people who can't even stand up let alone read.
    • Walking from the Florence to the Fawcett dragging Sam behind me cause he kept K-ing into bushes, nightmare!
    • Rob's bloody slippers!
    • The white board, fuck me I thought I was in a sitcom.
    • A random woman explaining to me just how clean the Swiss air is.
    • Leaving a bomb in the bathroom and searching high and low before stumbling upon it again.
    • The Various Reverb and Custard nights, especially the one ending up at Amy's with the fucking weirdos.
    • Albert Road days, when all the chavvies came in en all.
    • Getting pissed before the very rare anarchist meets.

    • "As pure as driven snow, the best thing I've had up my nose."
    • Mine and Payge's little girly bits to there especially involving loads of Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs.
    • The cheeky texts between Holly and me ;)
    • Being repeatedly told I have good energy.
    • Telling a certain someone to fuck off 'cause she's a stupid whore

    • "You've got third degree gurns"
    • Cucumber and tomatoes can officially fuck off, we decided.
  • I know she was a long time dying but she's finally been put to rest. The Fawcett Inn is dead, long live The Fawcett Inn!

Kerala <3

I cannot explain how much my life has been enriched by volunteering in India. The country, the culture, the people, I have fallen in love with all three.

Eating with your hands, chasing children, street goats, getting Kylie off your chair, squat toilets, lunch at Prya’s, the tiny chef <3, rain disco! PINEAPPLE SHAKE! “Time to make party!”smiling when you don’t understand, riding elephants, sunsets at the fishing nets, Kashmere boys <3, sleeper-class, Dal Roti, Hello Kitty watches, Jutten, Sat’s facial expressions, fat kids, Standard 8 boys J, wrestling with Ross, bats on the backwaters, keyboard flip-flops, hot coffee with ice cubes, Billy’s tiny nipples, tearful goodbyes, playing ‘would you rather…?’ stickers! Jim’s sleep-walking, carrots at the XL Bar, bowel-updates with Ashley Pavitt, stray dogs, VARKALA! Halloween costumes, dirty feet, thunderstorms, leg-wrestling, moustaches! Making cranes with Kaz-San, Over The Deep Blue Sea, dancing, competitions, milkshakes at Loafers, Kieran’s ‘worm’, the Sanjays, “bees on the knees”, OY’s, tuk-tuks, Club Cabana, sarees, Little Tibet, falling in rivers, film nights, Asterix, the boys home, Gangnam Style… great times, great friends, great memories…

…Incredible, this India.
