It’s a photo Neal and the spelling is spot on (mine not yours :laugh2:, pronounced buy-gall, none of this bagel nonsense), in the dark hallway by the stairs so I didn’t get a great picture. I also meant to include this picture from my son’s room - Smoothsailor’s great post reminded me.

I know, i was just pulling your leg, the fact that my spelling was off is out of my control, i just copied it from the photo :blush::D

That's nice too^

@Maynard Friedman any back story with the Beigel Bake print... was this where young Maynard scored his carb fixes down the East End?  I can see it's still going... I used to get to London a lot in the old days (pre-pandemic) so will put it on the to-do list if it's worth a visit

...And it’s the other beige shop. The one a couple of doors down has the queue out the door. 


my humble contribution is my one true love (don’t tell the missus I said that):

About a third of my record collection pictured.  About 25 years of collecting and spanning soul, funk, reggae, ska, lots of hip hop and rap, psychedelic rock, jazz etc.

I grew up about a mile from the Beigel Bake so we occasionally had beigels, cakes, etc from there as kids but we had numerous other Jewish bakers even closer selling the same things. It wasn’t until I became a teen of drinking age that I started frequenting it regularly in the late hours. Most people tend to go for cream cheese and smoked salmon or hot salt beef but my favourite is chopped herring. I haven’t been in for a few years but definitely worth a try if you’re in the area and don’t go to the other beigel shop a few doors down (if it’s still open), it’s not as good - you’ll know the difference as one usually has queues and one is empty.

You’re right. This is the good one! I needed to look closer after reading this. It’s been years since I went. 
my family is all over Bethnal Green, mile end and Victoria park. I left London for country life 10 years ago.

A few from my Mrs.. she's not such a stickler for Sheffield artists

Anita Klein's 2005 'Bathroom Mirror'

fullsizeoutput_2c16

She bought this^ to celebrate me finishing the bathroom in the old house, it took me flipping ages trying to fit it in between work,  i made the frame out of the maple which was left over from the bathroom woodwork and mounted the print inside a double glazed unit to protect it from the moisture. It now sits on our landing next to the pulley airer.

Few from me, all difficult to capture due to placement and me being crap at taking photos 

First homage to the UKs premier city 

20210101_145708.thumb.jpg.935c1771aa43290a05dcc467ebfbd041.jpg

Next a Tokyo subway map. We have a well worn one in our travel box we use so last time we went we picked up a (free) new one and framed it

20210101_145633.thumb.jpg.526c0c16fa110cdb8f5978fca455622c.jpg

A few masks collected on our travels adorn the hallway. Cuba, Thailand and Japan.

20210101_145522_resized.thumb.jpg.7982842be1ae65b439dda58971693f47.jpg

Last is framed drawings of 90s hip hop stars listed by the real names. Visitors have to prove their pedigree by naming as many as possible....

Couldn't capture detail well so images borrowed from the artists site also included

20201231_185744.thumb.jpg.43ad12cd42b7140262cf507af786f79f.jpg

Bonus point for naming these guys

I believe I saw you stroling around Ueno area in may 2016. Always ment to mention it, but never did. Seeing the Tokyo subway map made me do it.

the masks are cool.

simular interest brings you to the same place I guess

@Double 0 Soul only person other than myself to get Ice T!  Must be our age..

@smoothsailor yes mate I was there then. Small world.  Should have said Hi, would have made my day. 

My wife wasn't to keen on Ueno but I liked it. Saying that she did put away a far amount of sake in the one place we ate/drank in so couldn't be that bad!

Very nice, i'm also intrigued by the dead thing in the jar...what's going on there?

Haha. Yeah I thought someone will probably mention it sooner or later. It’s a preying mantis molted cuticle(shed skin). So not dead. Just two biology students living together and liking weird things.

My kid found a shed skin from a dragon fly a few years ago

..and here's one that he caught mid-flight, they're supposedly fast but not when you compare them to the reflexes of a 5yr old

Yup, she's still a fine woman, i watched a (filmed) radio show or podcast with Darlene as a guest a few years ago, she's pretty witty and intelegent her recolections of the early days hustling with IceT are just golden and even though he ditched her for some bimbo she's not at all bitter, I think the interview coincided with the release of her book.

...Cat dish by Alessi

fullsizeoutput_2c1d

I bought this^ back in the late 90's as a birthday prez for our old cat Gillespie, i'm embarrassed to say it was around £60 but our cat still loves it or maybe that's just the food contained within... "You've got more money than sense" is what my old man would have said...

My constant companion for 35 years - there isn’t a bottle we couldn’t conquer. I think the Laguiole wine key is just beautiful, mine is pear wood and has darkened a lot over the years with the oil from my hands. Needs a bit of a clean, but in terms of functionality it’s like new.

1. Ornithoptera Goliath - bought for my son (for his day of birth by a famous French actress!). The span is about 6”

2. Inspired by OO and Duke, my ‘Alessi-man’ corkscrew 

3. Italia ‘90 commemorative bottle of Barbera d’Asti. I bought and consumed it during the tournament. Wished I’d bought a second and kept it unopened

4. Seletti magnetic world map. It’s in a darkish spot and difficult to photograph without reflections but is over a metre wide

5. Aluminium globe on Mrs F’s power shell table from New Zealand 

6. My bedside table made from recycled aluminium cans
