    Nice Things

    With a 3rd lockdown looming we're all spending a lot more time at home so lets see the things around the house you love.. It doesn't have to be anything expensive, if you love it, post it, i'll get things rolling.. Model 1227 c1938 Anglepoise (Herbert Terry & Sons) British lamp design at its best, original everything even down to the grommets, it's just had a sympathetic re-wire. It's sat on top of my mid-century wallnut and teak sideboard by Gunther Hoffstead for Uniflex Some geometric origami made by a local artist ...he was loosing his sight, couldn't paint so made origami I couldn't decide which side i preferred so i mounted it in a frame with glass on both sides, i can turn it around when i get bored Phlegm's Fight or Flight Kid Acne canvas The original at Park Hill There are numerous prints from this but only one canvas Mandy Payne's 'Everything of Value has Been Removed' I own some of her work, as does Alexei Sayle As you might have gathered, all the stuff i collect reflects the city in which i live, there will be a lot more to come if the thread takes off...

    Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

    I flicked the TV on last night and there was a docu on BBC2 called 'Fight The Power, How Hip-Hop Changed The World' .. i thought this might be good so i put it on and they was talking about Obama's links with Hip-Hop (ikr?) .. then it cut to Ice-T sitting in industrial unit and he said and i quote "and that's when Obama became the first Hip-Hop president" . Nope! switched that off.. wtf Ice-T, you used to be cool ..in 1988

    Watches and Denim

    It's not very often i need to what the time is.. for instance, just because it's 9am doesn't mean that's time for breakfast.. some days i'll eat breakfast at 8.45am other days not till 11am.. no point in me eating when i'm not actually hungry.. i would rather listen to what my body tells me rather than what my watch tells me.. saying this i still feel compelled to look at my watch periodically throughout the day even though i have a clock on the wall.. sometimes i'll look at my watch already knowing roughly what time it is.. we're all being controlled by 'big watch' here people

    Watches and Denim

    Yup, that's exactly what watches are.. wrist jewellery. That was the reason for my post.. i am trying to stop wearing it but after having something on my wrist 24hrs/day for 30yrs it's almost become part of me and it feels like something is missing when i take it off. Why do you need to know the time when you're swimming?

    Watches and Denim

    I'm trying my best to give up my watch.. it's hard because i haven't taken it off since the mid-90s.. it's a difficult habbit to break because if it's not on my wrist i feel like i've forgotten something which freaks me out.. but realistically in the days of tech who actually needs a watch other than posers, golfers or folks who like to display their wealth.. i'm not a tech guy i only got an iphone4 recently, given to me by my elderly aunt but there is a clock on the wall, a clock on the oven, a clock on my mac, a clock at work, a clock in the car.. clocks everywhere and apart from going to the dentist once/yr i don't actually need to be anywhere at any given time, certainly not to the nearest second. My watch ran out of battery about a month ago, so although it's still on my wrist, it doesn't tell me the time.. this was the first step to see if i could live with not knowing the time at every given moment... I can, next step will be taking it off.

    A guy who i used to work with when i was an apprentice had horribly corrosive sweat.. the metal of his carving tools was completely black.. i used to think they were made that way, then one day i was struggling to figure out the developnment of something i was carving.. he was trying to explain and said "here pass me your gouge" he took it by the blade and carved out what he was trying to explain, then handed it back.. the next morning i came into work and his hand print including finger prints was rusted into the blade.. they're still there to this day.. he's dead now but it still reminds me of him...

    Show Us Around Your Neighbourhood

    This is a pretty dope project at Nether Edge On The Brink Community For £370,000 you can buy a share in this commune https://strike.co.uk/property-for-sale/263363 you get 2 of your own bedrooms.. your own bathroom and lots of shared living space with 1.5acres of growing space.. "On The Brink is a multi-generational cohousing community based on companionship, ecological awareness, and mutual respect. Residents of On The Brink have their own individual homes as well as sharing communal space for cooking, eating, gardening, meeting, relaxing, and having fun together. The buildings of the cohousing community sit within 1.5 acres of grounds including some wild land, a vegetable garden, a large enclosed garden, and some impressive and unusual trees. In early 2021 the second phase of the project was completed, which led to the construction of several new properties on site. In total there are now 26 members, from primary school age to mid-70s. Because of the nature of cohousing, prospective buyers will be required to apply for and be accepted for membership of On the Brink Cohousing Community. This involves filling in a questionnaire and visiting On the Brink and getting to know the other members, in order for the community to determine whether someone is a good fit"

    Show Us Around Your Neighbourhood

    Grab yourself a camera and go for a stroll around your neighbourhood, within a 30min radius of home will be just fine, lets see the streets you walk everyday, the places you shop, the bus stops, no need for landmarks, the more mundane the better...as the thread suggests...? Here in Sheffield we have one of the largest poverty gaps in the UK, the city boomed during to the industrial revolution, imploded during the Thatcher government >further decline brought on by the outsourcing of the 90's. You can draw a line through my city, the rich/poor divide. I work in one of the most deprived areas but live in the West which borders our beloved Peak District, The Victorian houses built by steel barons trying to escape the cities pollution, Outside of London S10 is still considered to be one of the most affluent districts in the UK but we live in a typically working-class Victorian terrace house c1870 it's pretty much all we could afford in the area. These are the previously mentioned terraces albeit, ours is tucked away up a lane. ..Along the next street we go, Steve Beckett of Warp Records fame used to live up here, and Richard Hawley just a couple more streets away. ..the allotments at the end of the street Sheffield is the greenest city in Europe/has more trees per person or it did until Amey started cutting the f**kers down, Looking over S10. Follow the river Porter up to Lady Cannings Plantation, for all your MTB needs Down to the park, typical Sheffield weather Just a stones throw from the working-class terraces, overlooking the park are the middle-class Victorian villas . . Heading up towards Ranmoor where red brick turns to olde'world stone This is the route i cycle to work . . Through the Botanical Gardens (like a mini Kew) . ... i pop out at our local row of shops JoJo's, find their vintage goodies on Insta Past local muralist and print maker extraordinaire Phlegm, lots of his work dotted around the city. . . . ...and back home. Go to it super-peeps and don't be afraid to photo-bomb.

    I know.. it's a shame isn't it Stu.. I've been on the hunt for a 115mm since the first lockdown, it doesn't have to be mint condition (as long as the threads are good) but even in tatty condition they're insanely difficult to get hold of.. i managed to pick up a 135mm which you can see mounted on the previous page and stripped below but it's a bit of a stretch.. the 115mm was offered to me.. i passed it up at first because i just don't need NOS but it could be another 2 years of hunting before i find another one.

    There are no advantages which arn't outweighed by the disadvantages.. It's mainly just marketing bullshit (which the cycling world is full of) reinvention the wheel and such..

    What are your jeans doing today?

    We delved into the 70s with Halloween.. We watched the entire series of ‘Wednesday’ over xmas.. would Wednesday and Edith make friends again? would Thing survive?.. how was the headmistress implicated in all this nonsense?.. Jeez! I haven’t been that engaged in a teen drama since Degrassi Junior High!

    The one above, the first one.. A Nightmare On Elm Street 1984, Nancy had yoinked her phone out of the wall but it rings, she answers it and Freddy’s tongue pops out and licks her.. My kid was laughing at how the girls run away.. both arms in the air with no actual effort in their escape.. We’ve been watching 1980s horror films on Sunday night.. I’ve been checking their suitability on ‘common sense media’ and they’ve all been given the suggested age rating of 13 or 14 When I was a kid, any horror on VHS with anything other than a 18cert just wasn’t going to be worth watching!

    SugarCane 1990's M-Series Archive

    Ive been researching SugarCane's M-Series on and off for years..it's 99% complete but still a bit of a work in progress.. First up are the 'MP' codes, from what i can gather they originated around the late 80's, there used to be some bits of helpful info on 90's era Japanese blog sites, Geocities and such, sadly nowadays its all been lost or archived... MP-597 XX replica, redline denim, offset loop, what look like a boxy 50,s cut. MP-603 Circa 90/91, white/silver line, off set loop but look more like a '47' cut MP-604 101Z 'Cane's' Riders released from around 1990/91 MP-619 Lee 101, Pinkline, 'Union Made Cane's' button None of the MP models have a patch. Production of the MP codes ends before 1992. I have seen an article in 'Made in Japan' magazine referring to the 1991 release of the M41001 but that was retrospective having been published in 1998, there must have been a few years crossover period. Next up the early 90,s product codes M41072 1922-1936 replica M41028 Late 1800's Repro, No back yoke M41030 Late 30,s 501XX using a 13oz white line denim These came into production in the early 90,s and gained a cloth patch around 1997, There is also a M41030 with standard 'Toyo&CoSPL' fly M41001 Early 90's Laurel leaf model, late 40,s silhouette, 50,s details, pink-line denim M41001 1997 cloth patch model, both of these pairs are a 50's repro/details but their silhouette is more 47-esque, most unlike the wide/boxy, exaggerated SC-55's M41027 40,s Repro 101-B 14oz denim M41057 WWII 101-B M41051 1936 101 Cowboy Hair on Hide M41101 Mid 30,s 101 Cowboy M41058 11MW M41059 1947 11MW For comparison here's a deadstock pair belonging to Mr. Takahashi of Junky who also reproduced this pair. Another comparison of the pinkline denim types through the generations Worth noting that the M41001 & M41030 are 1" undersized comparred to the SC-47's and shrink 'from tagged' M41001 Tagged 32 SC-1947 Tagged 32 Other notable mentions M40333 Bell Bottoms M41151 Painter Pants M41117/M41099 Lot 117 + Lot 99 Ranch Pants, 10oz, buckle back, wide leg M41102 Lot 102 Engineer Pants, 10oz buckle back, wide leg M41104 Lot 104 Tool Pocket, 10oz wide leg M41106 Lot 106 Union Made Logger Pants, 10oz wide leg M41025 Beams x Oriental Enterprises XX. M41001-esque, 'Beams' tab & buttons, no arcs, no patch. Next up are the 91-97 M-Series Denim Jackets M11026 WWII 13oz denim (M11317 506XX Cloth Patch +pocket flap +donut buttons) M11001 Type2 without patch/outer stitch M11027 with patch M11028 Type 3 All of the above lots started life circa early 90,s and gained a cloth patch before the end of production in 1997 M11317 213 blouse M11002 (M11327 Blanket Lined) 101-J M11141 11MJ M11142 11MJZ Scovill zipper I hope this helps with the search... If you need anymore info, let me know and i'll see what i can dig up.
