Right so I am fed up with dropping 50-60 quid on a pair of skate shoes only for them to be totally knackered in three months. I don't skate, but am pretty hard on my shoes - I ride my mountain bike in them and walk for miles most days. I think I must walk funny too, because the heels always wear out first.

What are the most hard wearing skate shoes? Particularly the soles. Anyone had a pair that have lasted ages?

Yeah I've noticed this. The area has changed a lot in the last 5 years. I do miss what it used to be like but gentrication is happening everywhere,  just got to find new places to go out

While I see where you're coming from if we're honest Stokes croft was a complete shithole. 5 or 6 years back there wasn't anywhere to go apart from the full moon, junction and whatever the bank was call before it was the bank (a place so friendly a barman once  told me to fuck off when I tried to pay for two pints with a twenty), unless you count the queue at best at 3am as a night out. When you got out the clubs or when you passed back through you put your head down and walked through quickly trying to avoid the gangster types staring you out. I remember the night the guy got murdered in club uk I walked back through from thekla or somewhere  and got asked what "the fuck I was looking at" 3 times in 100 yards. It was seriously sketchy that night and that wasn't uncommon. That's not to mention the stupid number of crack heads, although it was getting better by 08. I'd rather have pissed students any time.

Even by the time the riots hit the place was much improved and it did seem to have a bit of a golden moment two or three years back when it had cleaned up a bit but was still recognisably the old stokes croft.
I agree it has changed out of all recognition these days and probably gone too far down the friendly and trendy route (just wait till they finally do the carriage works, it's only gonna get worse) but still I can't imagine what it was you liked about the place in the mid/late 2000s.

Having said all that the clubs were much better. I got all sentimental about clockwork/powerhouse the other day. And the old Lakota with propper courtyard. And smoking inside....

I liked going to the croft, junction, blue mountain, clockwork, full moon and lakota. There were some amazing nights put on and fewer annoying students/tourist types around. I agree with what you said about the area being more sketchy but in the venues you seemed to have a better mix of people.

Who knows maybe I'm just getting old and nostalgic

YESSSS I am the king of the internet. It is apparently a (possibly fake) leaked placement map for the camps at Burning Man 2015. They have themed camps apparently



Boomtown site map?

Not far off!

It is the inclusion of the term 'mate' I don't understand, as though it was supposedly copulation for reproductive reasons, not just straight up f-cking for the jollies.

I'm always a little amused by the lines you get in these sort of articles describing pretty horrific things in a very deadpan scientific way

"In three of the four recorded incidents the seal let the penguin go. But on one of the more recent occasions, the seal killed and ate the penguin after trying to mate with it."

I remember this article about homosexual necrophilia in the animal kingdom was doing the rounds a little while back http://www.theguardian.com/education/2005/mar/08/highereducation.research  - it contains the delightful line

"Mr Moeliker was informed of an American case involving a squirrel and a dead partner, although in this case it is not known whether the necrophilia observed was homosexual or not as the victim had been run over by a truck shortly before the incident."
