Commuting in to London on Friday and saw the low end of this look, where two guys had basically substituted their grey striped suit trousers with jeans, and lost the ties from formal shirts. Horrific!

A young nun and her mother superior are showering when there's a knock at the front door. Mother superior says to the young nun 'look out if the window to see who it is'. The young nun looks out and says 'it's the blind man'. The mother superior says 'then go and let him in' . The young nun protests 'but I haven't any clothes on, mother superior'. 'Nonsense' says the mother superior, 'it's the blind man, go and let him in!' The young nun goes to the front door and opens it. The man standing there looks at her and says 'lovely tits, now where do you want these blinds?'

Those massive bushy beards that seem to be in fashion now.

I like the fact all the sheep have beards and are now called bootcut or some other type of trouser by the media. It makes it easier to spot them. I wonder, if one of these no ton living model types had a tattoo on their forehead with the word t**t, how soon it would be on the cover of GQ?

Banter / Help, recommended London hairdresser?
« on: February 24, 2014, 09:49:14 AM »
 I am fairly obsessive about my Barnet, but my regular hairdresser (of 15 years) took leave of her senses on Saturday and cut my hair short, in what can only described as a late 70's welleresque crop. I am fairly devastated and although it will be better in a couple of weeks, feel I need to find someone who understands what I want. I live in Essex and work in south east London so commute via Stratford to woolwich daily.  I am happy to go into town but don't want to go too far off the beaten track. Any recommendations?

Saw the title of this thread and started worrying. So glad it's about personal facial care. Unfortunately, having a dimple in my chin I avoid wet shaving and stick to a Braun!

Yeah Steve, great film, the torture box with images and sounds freaked me out as a kid. Ironically, people now queue up and pay to go into something very similar to dance!

It's definitely a subconscious thing then! Dogstar, wait until they are asleep then play it quietly ;-)

Banter / Mental I tunes?
« on: September 08, 2013, 10:41:25 PM »
Growing up with two older sisters who had very different tastes meant I was exposed to a variety of music from an early age. ELO's Mr Blue Sky was in the charts when I learned to ice skate at the Billingham Forum  and I remember tearing around the rink while it played, but that was it, although my eldest sister was into them. Anyway, having heard that song on tv recently I decided to listen to it while ironing my shirts so put their greatest hits on you tube on my iPod. What freaked me out was that as it played I found myself not only knowing but actually singing along to most of the songs. I don't own nor have actively listened to ELO so can only think that some of the music I heard as a young child has stuck in the recesses of my brain like a mental version of I tunes! Has anyone else experienced this?

It's a no from me, they just remind me of the boots the kid with callipers in my class wore. Showing my age!

Irish Jack said that he did not get involved in any trouble as he was far too concerned about his clothes. That is a true mod. Yes, the journalists urging the kids to have a tear up made everyone in the country aware of it, but the scene did not endure because of that.
