My second expedition to Coventry for a night out, and I really hoped this one was going to be better, if you read the post about my last adventure you’d know why!
So meeting Jon and purchasing some alcohol we boarded a train to Coventry, after a slight detour we arrived at the venue at around 9, sparsely populated I feared this could be a repeat of that fateful night earlier this month.
The venue filled throughout the next hour or two and it turned out to be a very busy night, a few sets lacked skill but the effort was definitely there…
The Tomb Crew came on at around 1am after some hardware issues and proceeded to destroy the dance floor with some old skool garage and then a series of devastating dubstep tunes, big up to that blonde girl requesting cockney thug!
The night drew to a close and a small gathering ventured back to Ollie’s for the “after party” certain members took to many substances and retired upstairs, big up to Jon for pouring beer down my jeans (cunt)
I finally got home at 6.30pm Saturday and retired to my room for some much needed sleep!
(For all those who want the pictures they’re on my Facebook, just search for Andrew Witts and drop me a message)

Just rolled in from a night of alcohol, laughs and photographs.
Kesh asked me to do some pictures for her clothing brand, recognising the oppurtunity to increase my portfolio, I willingly accepted..
So I get to Clapham North soon after 8pm and am submerged into a house of semi-drunken females… they dissapear off into Kesh’s bedroom and 30 minutes later, I am summoned in…
I took a few basic pictures to guage lighting, and the effect of the flash gun… then get underway… I can’t show all the pictures, for one there’s far too many.. and also I need to hold some back for other reasons.. I wasn’t really sure what was expected of me, but under the partial direction of Kesh I took a couple hundred photos, and am happy with the vast majority of ‘em…
All the girls were lovely, and made my already easy job.. even easier..
Overall, a very jokes evening, and one I won’t be forgetting for a while..
I would have made it longer but well everything would have got a little to negative so i kept it short and sweet.
Shoe of the year: Foot PatrolxAdidas Campus
Worst shoe of the year: Nike Sb What the dunk….
Most Under-rated shoe: Nike Talaria Boot, it was underated in 93/94 still was in 07, got a better response but underated nevertheless. Props if you picked it up Tinker killed it .
Most Over rated shoe of the year: anything clyde/maybe the Spiz’ike/what the dunk
Biggest Disappointment: the lack of good affordable shit.
For 2008 do not be dis heartened stick with it for 2008 smells like change. People will stop filtering culture through thier computer screens and get out and do shit. Nike have even made a new shoe! i kid you not, a hybrid but looks nothing like any of the shoes used to make it, its fresh and affordable.
(this is not gospel, just my opinion and im shur many will disagree, but thats how the story goes)
Now I understand when you’re a kid Christmas can seem to be all about presents, getting up at 6am to open you re new console, bike, clothes, games whatever but now we’ve all grown up why are some people still so ungrateful?
I’ve spoken to a few people today and all they have done is moan about gifts, moan about stuff they got they don’t want or moan about how Christmas is over as soon as you’re done opening presents?
I don’t wanna sound cheesy here, but all of that stopped a long time ago. It’s nice to open that great surprise gift or something you really hoped for but Christmas is all about giving and spending time with family and loved ones oh and the bonus of fine food!
The highlight of my day today have to been the cheer of joy from my Dad when he opened one of his presents from me, and the same with my Mom. Honestly I’ve never had that reaction before and it was so nice to see the happiness in the two of them. Later on today we went to visit my Nan and Grandad and all of my Mom’s family, it was really nice to see everyone together, happy and smiling.
So everyone just appreciate the family you have and the gifts you received, some people are a lot less fortunate!
Paix & Merry Christmas.
Merry Crimbo and all of that . . . the days nearly over
and ’08 is nearly here
I had to do this before other blogs and myspace’s do it..
Highs and lows of 2007 . . .
England losing every sporting glory it came so close to winning –
People on mypsace that claim to be graphic designers but have some whack rave flyer they made.
The people who automatically turned into professional photographers since digital cameras became affordable(except my boys on BNTL, they’re original showerface mongers with the camera’s, don’t watch that
Northern Rock account holders, you’re so dumb! Your fucking money never went anywhere, it was safe. But yet you lined up to take your money out! Did you not think if everyone went at once then you may not get your money?
The release of the Nike Talaria boot (anyone got a size 6 or 7 I’ll buy, whatever price.
Poorly made re-issues! Up your game Nike, too many re issues… up your game Nike
A reduced amount of Asian people on road selling pirate DVD’s, I can’t lie there has been times I really needed them guys and they were nowhere to be found! It even cost me a link one time with some woman I really liked
Add more if I’ve missed something out because I’m sure there’s plenty more!!
First blog post from the keys (of the X) of my new laptop…
I hope everyones day was spent wisely, and in the spirit of the season.. whoever texted me and said today is about Jesus was sorely mistaken, it’s all about the turkey..
Got to see some family members I rarely see, so that was all good.. Also managed to acquire Season 1 of The Wire on DVD, a series I missed out on when it originally aired..but am planning to catch up on now, under the fervent pressure of my peers..
I’m currently trying to decide who to give the aforementioned t-shirt to, alot of people have messaged me on hypebeast asking for it, and generally showing love.. which is appreciated muchly, and I now know there are multiple worthy destinations for the tee… which perhaps should prompt me into doing a full run!? Stay tuned on that front…
ANYWAY.. here’s a picture I really liked from today… Leila, Vincent & I…
Embracing the confusing board game version of Deal or No Deal..
In closing, I look forward to seeing some of you on New Years Eve, and those I don’t see.. have yourself a wonderous time.
