The Focus Group is Go

New York London Paris MunichPost a comment • 492 views

The Focus Group is Go. If you expected a focus group invite and haven’t got it, it’s because:

i) I didn’t know you wanted one. E-Mail Me if you do.
ii) I’ve got your e-mail wrong. See above.
iii) I drink with you and you’re coming to the main focus group event. Don’t bother e-mailing me if that’s the case, since I’ll be in touch anyway.

Expect the results before the end of November.

Napster in Bertelsmann deal: inevitably.

Once again I am ashamed to be British

Once again I am ashamed to be British: not even Travis think Travis are the best band in the world, for pity’s sakes. And David Gray winning Best Single??

Platter sightings.

Actually this post is not about the most used word on the publog at all. Instead it is a bonafide review of a pub, something we occasionally get round here. But since i rather like this boozer, and will be recomending its idiosyncratic Robert Robinson’s front room ambience – I though I’d best not put its name up top for fear of it getting swamped.

The Bricklayers Arms, just off Stephen Street is yet another Sam Smith’s pub. They are getting everywhere like a vaguely perturbing rash. And surely they flaunt the guest beer regulations – since they don’t carry any. I have a vague idea that the guest ale law has gone the way of all fleshy anti-market regulation, but it still shocks a regualr number of punters to go into a Sam Smithery without recognising a single beer. This would be a great problem is it was not for the fact that their house beers, lagers at least, are rather tasty little buggers., And the Fatman, the token cooking lager, is still a good 4%. Its cheap, its stronger than the average session beer and it actually tastes good.

transcription of the actual radio on where chuck eddy made the controversial bone thugs comment:

seems like phil dellio misrepresented him in the critique linked below. he didn’t say “i haven’t decided if i want to like this yet” but “i haven’t decided whether phil wants me to like this.”
