There used to be quite a few of those signs in Soho. The difference here is Daddy's money has paid for a 'proper' engraved one that probably cost him a few hundred quid whereas all the ones I saw were handwritten notes by tenants.

I'm sure his art was great (I mean this) but he's constantly described as a 'dandy' which should tell you all you need to know.

Haha I'd love to be a 1890-1910 dandy, mincing around full of laudanum and absinth, with a finely tailored suit and a velvet cravat. A fine cigarillo atop my unnecessarily long cig holder. A fantastic moustache and trilby. On my way to the chemist to get some heroin cough drops.

Fuck yeah.

Are those signs serious or are they there to attract punters?

The best thing about Soho is Wong Kei.

Absolutely the best place in my and quite a few other peoples opinion.

quite a few tossers disagree though lol

The O'Neil Irish pub there used to be very good too, some nice totty.

Then it's the Punch & Judy in Covent Garden.

Etc...

When I was on heroin and feeling nice, a stroll through town with a Macdonald's shake would be a lovely day for me!
You & I sir are cut from the same cloth it seems.
When I got weed I love going to the local park but it's not a small place, it's bloody huge, has a lake etc. It was a home to some industrial guy who was so rich it must have been insane.


Off Google......."Opened to the public in 1931, it attracts 1.3 million visitors per year and is approximately 13.65 hectares (33.7 acres)." which shows you how big it is & gives you an idea of what kinda park it is. I love to go get a good Coffee & sit under the shade of some old tree & blaze a good spliff & watch the world go by, watch the ducks fight over bread, watch dogs chase a ball etc. I'm one of those Flaneur types in a way.

I'm off to London on the 14th of next month @StoneHappyMonday to go to the British Museum with that Anthropology lady I know for that Devine Female religious stuff display I linked a few weeks ago & you commented on it.

"Explore the significant role that goddesses, demons, witches, spirits and saints have played – and continue to play – in shaping our understanding of the world.

How do different traditions view femininity? How has female authority been perceived in ancient cultures? For insights, the exhibition looks to divine and demonic figures feared and revered for over 5,000 years. From wisdom, passion and desire, to war, justice and mercy, the diverse expression of female spiritual powers around the world prompts us to reflect on how we perceive femininity and gender identity today.

Worship of Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes, reveals how her destructive capacity is venerated alongside her ability to create. The Buddhist bodhisattva of compassion, who transcends gender and is visualised in male form in Tibet and female in China and Japan, uncovers the importance of gender fluidity in some spiritual traditions. And the terrifying Hindu goddess Kali, depicted in art carrying a severed head and bloodied sword, is honoured as the Great Mother and liberator from fear and ignorance.

Enhanced by engagement with contemporary worshippers, faith communities and insights from high-profile collaborators Bonnie Greer, Mary Beard, Elizabeth Day, Rabia Siddique and Deborah Frances-White, the exhibition considers the influence of female spiritual power and what femininity means today.

Bringing together sculptures, sacred objects and artworks from the ancient world to today, and from six continents, the exhibition highlights the many faces of feminine power – ferocious, beautiful, creative or hell-bent – and its seismic influence throughout time."

But a huge thanks for saying about the books for sale, I just seen "Tantra: enlightenment to revolution" which looks amazing & with any luck I will have the £350 off the Tory lot as I now got a shopping list & I'd have no idea if you hadn't said about it.
Turns out you aren't that much of a shit-head & it's even possible you may like me 0.0009%

Just saw a lad walking down the street with an eye patch on and a toy Parrot on his shoulder…

I said “ what ya up to Lad?”
He shouted back “ playing pirates”

I said “ oh yeah well where are your buccaneers then ?”

He replied

“ Under my Buccin Hat!”

That is such an impressive Poppy garden. How the hell have they managed to get so many of them to grow upright and produce big pods when they are all packed so closely together!? That is something I have never been able to accomplish.

I have tried growing Poppys a few times and never had great results although i am not without some skills and knowledge with gardening type stuff.

I tried growing hens and chicks recently; out of a packet of 500 seeds planted in a large number of pots, they all germinated, but bastarding slugs or birds ate or pulled up nearly all of the seedlings. Only about 5 or 6 of them made it to grow into big plant stage at least. Which obviously is a terribly poor success rate. I'm not sure what to do about the slugs and birds. I like having all the house sparrows around living where i do in such an urban area but they can be a pain at certain times, and slugs I have no time for at all!

I may need to surround my pots with slug pellets if I try again. It's disgusting to see the effect they have on the slugs but it might be a necessary evil if I try again.

What were you drinking last night?
sadly not milk of the poppy. had some of those ophir pre mixed g+ts. desperados, oranjeboom black, lorazepam
Deffo P. somniferum. looks like my garden at the moment.
what do you do to convert them into something useable? do ones grown in england really produce the right compounds? do you grow yours as blatantly as this!?!?
