the lost fountains of W1
it's on days like these that centrepoint's glorious sparkling bits of brasilia are most missed days when you need a handy spot to dangle your roasting toes and dodge the busses and the ever queuing astoria teens and dream of long ago days when grade 2 listing actually meant something (not that i know what it means in the slightest obviously) that wasn't let's dig it up and store it and possibly put it somewhere else entirely even though it looked so grand just where it flipping well was thankyou very much.
anyway now all you get round there is a face full of dust and rocks in your shoes. goddamn you crossrail goddamn you all to hell.
listen and remember and shake a tail feather
quartette tres bien - boss tres bien
