More guilty pleasures

This weekend's ones:

1. Friday - The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle. I know it's terrible, but there's a certain joy in it....

2. Saturday - Robocop - the worst title ever, but one of the best satires of the 80s.

3. Sunday - Found another copy of The Cult - Love. I don't know if this one really counts as a guilty pleasure, I still think it's one of the best albums to come out of the post-punk era. Billy Duffy's no great shakes as a technician, but the solo on 'Love' is magnificent.

Who indulged over the weekend? Cid's excluded of course, on account of having no sense of guilt (or shame) whatsoever.

Re: More guilty pleasures

I was in a cafe in Amsterdam once eating a 'space bar' i thought it was some sort of 'space cake' choc bar equivalent, after 30mins of no effect I then found out it was just a chocolate bar lol

Grrr, it seemed so obvious, a cafe full of hash smoke and stoners, how could if of not have been right! saw it in a news agents later lol

I usually go in a small coffee shop in the basement part of the Red Light Bar. Most places do muffins but this place does an awesome cream cake and they sell it in slices It's delicious

Re: More guilty pleasures

Red light area eh? nudge nudge, wink wink

It's been years since I went, we used go in a place called the 36 Club. Really mellow atmosphere in there. Either there or a couple of other places called Mellow Yellow or Mike's Coffee Shop Aww, going down memory lane here, or should I say lack of memory lane

Re: More guilty pleasures



This is the place, the bar upstairs is cool and the coffee shop downstairs is very relaxing
