    You're probably the least metal person I've ever met, so I can't even imagine a psychedelic drug powerful enough to make you 'go metal'. It would probably have to be the fearsomely potent DMZ from Infinite Jest - the drug so bizarre "it was as if acid had itself taken acid".

    If you're wearing a Slayer T-shirt next time I see you, I'll know what's happened, at least.

    Had a couple of really nice meals in Margate this weekend. Hantverk & Found was good but didn't blow me away, the one that did was at Bottega Caruso. Just delish homemade pasta, mine came with shin of beef and another kind, I've forget which. It was just perfect. Salty, rich, filling. Great wine as well. First "posh" m aleal me and Katie have manged since Ivy's been born, and having kids there wasn't at all a problem.

    I don't know how I feel about the art/food/hispter gentrification of these small towns. It seems like a cheap solve for a much deeper set of problems and likely to cause a degree of class based resentment amongst those who're still out of a job no matter how easy it is to get a flat white. Very weird - does hipster decadence substitute for a functional, future-facing economy? I'll start a thread if there's any interest.

    Save your sheckels for Consumer Electronics and Kleistwahr on Sept 29th. It will answer some of your questions on the “England’s Hidden Reverse weirdos” thread and may recalibrate your conception of ‘sexy’.

    Looking at a few places online and it looks way too posh for me but my wife wants to go there for our anniversary - i would have taken her to CookDaily in Boxpark but apparently that's not romantic enough.
