magic place
Hi everybody,

I`m going to London in August. Could anybody tell please if there is any place where people make wishes or places that brings luck?

I do not want to throw pennies in fountains, I believe it is more about "I want to come back", whilst I need smth different.:) Well, yeah, probably I want some cheecky romance. 

For example, there is a fake Julietta`s house in Verona and people tell that if you touch the Julietta`s statue it will bring you luck in love.

I'm an American who is considering going to London and I have a question. I've been offered a teaching job in Barking and Dagenham. Can anyone tell me any information about this place? Is it a good community? Bad community? Has anyone had any experience with this type of job? I really want to know quickly if at all possible because I am trying to make a decision rather quickly.

Free Party - February 1st (Daytime) - Brixton
Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

We Continue is a brand new daytime event designed to change the way you think about partying and give a different shape to your weekend.

You spoke and we listened! Its uplifting house, its bouncy electro, its comfy sofas and quirky décor, it’s in South London and best of all, IT’S FREE!!!

We’re thrilled to be holding our first ever party at the legendary Dogstar in Brixton, a venue steeped in musical history which has played host to some amazing live bands and parties over the years and this will be their first ever Sunday afternoon party!

If you’ve never been to the Dogstar before (and even if you have) you can’t fail to be stunned by the surrealist décor which is different in each and every room. We’re lucky enough to be having our party in the VIP suite, a gorgeous, intimate room with comfy sofas and armchairs, a perfectly proportioned dance space, chandeliers, a private bar and almost panoramic views of Brixton’s buzzing community thanks to the huge windows. The Dogstar is only a 5 minute walk from Brixton tube and overground train services.

Sunday afternoon just got a lot more interesting.

Sunday Saviours:
NOT SHY (This Is Not A Rave/CAT)
SOOTHSAYER (Disco 3001)
JASMINE (Dice, No Judgement)
KILLEMILIO (Dice, UpTownBoogieDown)

Entry: FREE!

haircut models needed
I hope this isn't inappropriate here, but I don't know tons of people in London yet, so I'm hoping that y'all don't mind me soliciting for free haircut models. Even if you're not interested, please feel free to forward this to friends who might be. Thanks!

Details under the cut. Women with shorter hair needed! Serious applicants please.Collapse )

Saw 'Clubbed' the other night at the Prince Charles. It was a good but it was not a 'movie' it was a flm. Violence was present but not glamourised nor were the characters-well not too much anyway.

Based on the book: 'Watch my Back'; a biographical work Geoff Thompson who became a bouncer (or rather doorman) following depression & separation from is wife and children. Not quite as weepy as it sounds. Even though A lot of the story does deal with the main character's depresion & his hapless attempts to be a proper father to his children by making up for absence on weeked visits. It is a story about a man overcoming his own fears and powerlessness. And this is a theme that persists throughout the film.

There was damn-all sex which wont get the film an Oscar nomination. The '80's ska scene give the film a distinctive feel: retro blending seamlesly with the '80s recession in the UK. The script, photography, directing and acting does credit to the mean streets of England in the '80s but there's little glamour here. Unlike many of the blockbusters it's not a world one wishes to imagine inhabiting. When the script first attracted backers they were interested in making it a documentary. A little too close to home and too real for 'Merchant of Ivory'.   
Just remembered some of things I said about 'Clubbed' a conversation I had on the way home after watching the film. 
'Doormen' at thier best aspire to be samurai. I'm not suggesting that the guys on the doors of clubs have the sort of skils that would earn them the title of Kensai(sword saint: a sort of spiritual-superhero-martial-artist). This point is raisd in the film. One of the characters in film tried ot apply philosophy to his craft. And it is true that guys who are often violent or drawn towards violence do this sort of work in order to find thier  place in society. I've talked to doormen before and many of them are into philosophy & martial arts & spirituality. Mind you some of them just like to thump your nose and give your honey a squeeze.

So, me and my friend are going to London for three days this weekend. Both of us have already been there so we've visited all traditional touristic places. We have a list of some things we'd like to do this time but could you give us an advice about some interesting and not too well-known places to see - maybe museums or even pubs-restaurants, markets - anything like this?

Thank you in advance. ))

Ghost Walk tonight
The Vampyre Connexion presents: GHOSTS OF THE OLD CITY  WALK
Tuesday 27th March 2007 @ 7.30pm
For those only interested in this walk meet the rest of us at St. Paul's Tube exit 2 at 7.30 pm.
This walk is a public one and we will be joining the general tours, the Walk is £6 to be paid to the guide.
At night the ancient City is deserted...and eerie. Exploring its shadowy back streets and dimly lit alleys we might be in a medieval citadel, in overpowering stone. The very street names - Aldersgate, Cloth Fair, Charterhouse, Threadneedle - take us far back. We're alone...or are we? For this is the hour when the She Wolf of France glides through the churchyard, the hour when the dark figure on Newgate wall rattles his chains, the hour when the Black Nun keeps her lonely vigil, and something inexpressibly evil lurks behind a tiny window. We're on their trail...or are they shadowing us?
For those interested in meeting before and like quite a few of us wanting to go straight from work and get some drinks and food,
From 6pm we will be in this pub before making our way to the tube station later for the walk.
Ye Olde London (used to be Bells Books and Candles)

I'm very new to the city and looking for private violin tuition. I am aware of the various websites where teachers can list, but would be more interested in personal recommendations if anyone has any experiences to share. I:

Am an adult learner (25)
Last played approximately 7 years ago, when I was studying for my ABRSM Grade 7
Live in SE1, and would prefer weekend lessons due to a long weekday commute.

I am not interested in group lessons thanks, but fortnightly lessons would be fine :)

Thanks in advance

Christmas is a great time of year but it is also a lonley time of year.
Does anyone know of or want to hold a party on Christmas day for strangers in London who dont have family or friends near by?

Alternatively also for New years eve.

Do you come from another country or city but live in London, cant afford to go home, cant afford to go away with friends, or find that there is no room at the family inn, have become single again or just want to spend time with new and interesting people on christmas day instead of getting stressed over family politics?
