WE LISTENED TO TRIP-HOP ALLLLLL THE WAY.

MASSIVE ATTACK- ONE LOVE


TRICKY- BLACK STEEL


I USED TO LIVE IN BRISTOL LATE 90'S. WANTED TO SHOW NAR & BAILEY THE TRUE BRISTOL EXPERIENCE. WE WENT TO THE PUB & DRANK CIDER.


















THEN WE WENT TO A PARTY IN THESE ARTIST STUDIO SPACES WHERE EVERYONE APART FROM US WAS DRESSED LIKE ANIMALS AND THEY HAD A SHOW WHERE THE ANIMALS WERE WRESTLING IN A BOXING RING. VERY WEIRD. VERY BRISTOL.















SEE... 'I TOLD YOU SHE DIDN'T HAVE A DICK'















WE MET THIS AMAZING SPANISH GIRL CALLED 'ALBA'. SHE WAS OUR HERO OF THE NIGHT.

















RONI SIZE REPREZENT- HEROS


THE NEXT DAY WE WOKE UP LATE & MISSED EMILIE TAKING PART IN A SPONSORED HULA HOOP EVENT. WISHED WE HAD MADE THE EFFORT. LOOKED NUTS






































IN THE AFTERNOON WE LUNCHED WITH MY BROTHERS 2 HOTTIE MATES HARRIET & JESS. THEY TOOK US TO THIS GREAT CAFE IN STOKES CROFT CALLED 'CANTEEN'.
















WE WENT FOR A WALK IN MONTPELIER & MET THESE NICE CRUSTIES IN THE PARK





































I PERSONALLY THINK IT WOULD BE NICE TO HAVE A TESCO IN MONTPELIER AS THERE WERE NO SHOPS OPEN AND THERE ARENT ANY CASHPOINTS : (


















PORTISHEAD- ONLY YOU... AND ONE OF THE BEST MUSIC VIDDYS EVER MADE. BY CHRIS CUNNINGHAM


TRICKY... SUFFOCATED LOVE


THEN WE DROVE UP TO THE CLIFTON SUSPENSION BRIDGE A.K.A SUICIDE BRIDGE.
























































WE STROLLED AROUND CLIFTON VILLAGE & PRETENDED WE WERE POSH & LIVED THERE. ALTHOUGH MY BROTHER LIVED THE STREET BEHIND THIS WHEN HE WAS A STUDENT & HE'S NOT POSH.

















I LOVE GEORGIAN HOUSES. IF I WAS GOING TO BUY A HOUSE I WOULD LIKE TO BUY ONE OF THESE ONES.

















THIS IS MY OLD ART COLLEGE I STUDIED MY FOUNDATION COURSE IN BEFORE GOING TO ST MARTINS. IT IS AT THE BOTTOM OF WHITELADIES ROAD. I LOVE THIS BUILDING & 2000 WAS ONE OF THE BEST YEARS OF MY LIFE.
















ON SUNDAY NIGHT WE WENT TO COSIES - WHICH IS STILL MY FAV BAR EVER ON A SUNDAY NIGHT I RECKON. GO TO COSIES- 34 PORTLAND SQUARE.

ALTHO THESE ONES AREN'T FROM BRISTOL THEY SUM UP THE TIME I USED TO LIVE THERE...
