by the way just be aware of this:

Major works are taking place around Tottenham Court Road Station due to reconstruction works.

But to be honest this is a permanent notice pretty much all year round so i would worry too much, there is a service, however broken it might be :)

in brit terms, "major works" means "the fagging kettle's broken"

i'll be seeing you tonight then, its walking distance from my uni

TCR is a permanent building site. Centre point should have been demolished years ago. I'll be coming in from Osterley but only live walking distance from the place.

have some sympathy for people who use centrepoint as a navigation aid when they're stumbling around the soho-euston axis

Please force Spooky to sing this song over and over again when he gets drunk.

kusma, what song is that? I thought it would be Jørn Lol :-) Are you also coming to UK BTW? That would be cool! Espen is coming over on friday.

Small report of the pubmeet (because I'm sitting at LHR Terminal 5 and am bored):

* Peak attendance: 9 people (which isn't shabby at all)
* Alcohol amount adequate for a Wednesday, still I haven't had the slightest hangover this morning. This has to "improve".
* ForestCre actually exists and uses a laptop without a keyboard. Weird. The actor that Shane sent to impersonate Parapete was a bit obvious tho.
* Obscure sushi places that noone except a few Japanese and Keito knows are gooood.
* So are London goth/metal girls for that matter. Visually spoken.
* Wasabi killed less people than anticipated. Next time, increase dosage.
* And in the end the UKScene guys are a cool bunch of people. Now if they managed to get their lazy asses off whatever they're sitting on for _themselves_ it'd be perfect :)

Forgot to take photos, but I've seen Keito pointing his mobile phone at people, so there's a small chance for visual proof.

im pretty sure keito uses those pictures for his lonely tuesdays!

Oh, so the dude who looks pretty much exactly like kb in the phone pic that ShaneTheWolfTheDog sent me turns out to have been kb? I'd have come down from Newcastle if I'd known there was going to be a real life demoscreamer at the pubmeet :(

Oh, I never actually read the whole thread, or I'd have discovered that this whole UK scene initiative actually took a non-UK scener to initiate. Bloody typical.

Supposedly there are demoscene pubmeets every week in Hamburg.

How about we increase from our once-yearly-in-budliegh and once-in-almost-never-in-London to at least once a month ;)

spooky: things have been a bit hectic here in Oslo with the relocation, so I don't think I'll be able to come. Sorry for not letting you know before...
added on the 2009-03-19 18:29:18 by kusma kusma
We used to have more regular pubmeets but they died out. We should probably start them back up - especially now that there's a possibility that I might actually able to attend them again

Time for another pubtro?
