I need help finding a tune.

I think the singer is swedish and it was big in 2013/2014. The song is about splitting up with someone and then going out and getting fuck in every sense of the word. Well that is what the video showed anyway.

I did know the name but for the life of me I cant remember it. Quite poppy and think it was remixed as well.

Not much to go on I know but help please!

24  General / The Forum / Re: Bristol to Brixton - Bike Ride on: July 31, 2014, 11:54:16
140 miles on a fixie in one day, oooof.

Fastest I have managed 100 miles was at 18.2mph average and that was riding in a group and it killed me, I could not have gone another cm, My previous best century was 16.8mph and again I was fucked after. Both those are strava moving time so not including breaks.

I reckon you would do very well to average 16mph for 140 miles (especially fixed) - that's 9hrs pedalling without any breaks at all.

You are gonna want at least a couple of hrs breaks, that is looking like the best part of 12hrs, assuming no punctures, mechanicals etc.

Doable, but I would set off fucking early!



Set off early, take lights and maybe warmer clothes.


Good luck, restarting after breaks will be the hardest!

29  General / The Forum / Re: Sunday Roast with outside space for kids to play on: July 14, 2014, 11:29:01
The Thunderbolt does a great roast (good veggie / vegan options too) and has an outside bit for kids.

It does an amazing roast, prob best I have had anywhere in Bristol, but it is not going to be running over the Summer.

https://www.facebook.com/juneskitchenthunderbolt

Is the Thunderbolt a good/nice pub then? As that will almost be my local in a few weeks. Looks pretty run down but heard it has good music on.

The Thunderbolt is really a music venue more than a pub, usually on a weekend it is a charge on the door. They do have a pop up restaurant Sunday Roast thing on Sundays though - that is the June's kitchen thing I linked above - it is amazing, but they are having the Summer off. Get stuck in when it comes back though, the Chef used to be at Cafe Maitreya, the food is amazing, and they totally transform the pub for the roasts. In general have good bands on all the time though, plus later on when bands have finished you can usually rock up and get in free. The landlord is sound, it is a cool place.

Not sure where you will be living, but pretty sure the best pub close to you will be the Oxford. Its a proper pub, but also has very good live music and its always free, seen loads of wicked bands in there totally randomly. The landlord is sound as well, its an all round good place to go.

Star and Dove is good too, but a little more wanky, still good for drinks though, the food is a bit too pretentious for me. They have good beers though, and it is generally quite a nice place to kill a few hours.

Paintworks is ok, but is essentially some sort of creche with some beer pumps. The average age on a Saturday is about 8. Its nice in the week, and the Pizzas are ok if a little not for poors..

The Shakespeare used to be my favourite pub, but last time I went in there it was awful. Loads of sweaty men playing poker with 600dB 90s trance on the stereo. I have not been back.

The New Found Out is best avoided.

The pub at the end of my road is The George - they have a meat rafflle, that is all you need to know. I do go in here to watch football sometimes but cosmopolitan it is not.

NB - I drank 4 pints of Thatchers earlier today so all above opinions should be filtered through that nugget of information





Will be living in Arnos Vale. I will check these pubs out once I am finally settled. Only place I have been to is grounded for a coffee. Seemed alright but def a different demographic to Southville.

Thing about the Thunderbolt is they charge when they have a band on so I never make it down.  If you're gonna be local come up the road to Totters where you have the Star, the Oxford and the Shake.  Don't go in the New Found Out.

Roast at the Star is superb.

I think I will spend most of my time in paintworks or the totterdown pubs, doubt I will even bother trying to explore the Brislington ones.

I haven't had a roast there yet but went to the Ashville in southville last Sunday and the roasted looked good.

There is a gravel area outside for kids to scrap their knees on.

NB - both are for espresso machines

Does that mean the grain is finer? As I bought some coffee from Dubai airport (Sorry Snoo) earlier this year and it seems far to fine for my cafetiere as there is bits of silt at the bottom of my cup afterwards.

Anyone put some good miles in this weekend?

I managed Bristol to Exeter and it was amazing. Saw a deer, a donkey, rabbits, alpacas and lots of other animals. Roads were really good as well until we reached Honition and then it was like cycling on a pneumatic drill.

I saw that ride on strava, fair play that was a good effort!

I had a weekend off as had visitors Sad

My leg is still not quite right but have still managed ~250 miles over last couple of weeks, loving the sunshine.

I now have a pretty text book comedy cyclists tan....





Was tough going through the black down hills, especially as that ride is currently a 1/4 of my mileage this year. Knees were not happy.
