    Huh, I thought it common knowledge that only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun.

    (glad you had a great time!)

    funny, it's an identikit culture at this point. if i were blindfolded and dropped onto that car park roof, i wouldn't know if i was in williamsburg/bushwick brooklyn or portland or seattle or austin or asheville or (presumably) berlin or lisbon...

    Internet erased geography as well as genre, for a certain class of person. Boring innit

    Ha, reminds me of the (admittedly delicious) locally brewed ultra-hoppy IPA I enjoyed in Jordan a year and a half ago, which tasted just like the beer they had on tap in the country club I stayed in while on a work trip to San Diego four years ago, which in turn is identical to the beers you started seeing in trendy bars and off licences in London and Bristol and Edinburgh over the last half-decade, and since then in big supermarkets all over the country, and presumably the world...what was once a subculture based on individuality has become a superculture notable for its homogeneity. And yeah, it is a bit boring.
