According to a December 2016 Telegraph article London is the cocaine capital of Europe – but only during the week. Apparently we come second to Antwerp when you add in weekend usage. It seems we like to lay off a bit on the week as we’ve been hitting it a bit hard during the week. Go figure.
Anyway that allows me to segue nicely into today’s piece featuring a young lady doing her bit to get us back to top place. It’s laser cut on wood then hand painted and features Revlon’s snappy marketing line that fits so nicely and a little snippet from Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five’s ‘White Lines’. Once you’ve added a bit of crystal resin with some diamond dust glitter in then you’re good to go with another certified id-iom piece.
She’d look great once framed. Drop us a line if you’re interested.

So, it’s Friday again. Three cheers for Friday! In celebration of the fact that the weekend is once more almost upon us and I haven’t done one in a while I have decided to gift you with another earworm. The gift that keeps on giving. If on viewing the above image Grandmaster Flash‘s ‘The Message‘ doesn’t automatically start playing in your head then please check here for more information. Your brain may be broken.
Living in the urban jungle that is London it’s hard not to sympathise with Grandmaster Flash and his notion that the relentless pace of city life can sometimes be overwhelming. Or as the man so deftly puts it – ‘it’s like a jungle sometimes it makes me wonder how i keep from going under’.
