You get some fucking annoying people on trains nowadays.
Unfortunately I had to get on one the other day and, while there were some nice trees lurking about, on the whole it was pretty terrible. Kids ran around screaming with socks half-hanging off while being lured by fat parents with packs of Starburst, and one guy just kept strolling to the buffet car in bare feet.
This isn't your front room fam.
In addition, a ten-minute minute stop-off at Birmingham New Street has given me enough incentive never to go there again.
Sitting still, about to spiral into a moment of reflection, an anonymous woman takes it upon herself to talk a bag of shit which is mostly indecipherable. When you can finally make her out, the babble is either just irrelevant or, instead:
'the bar is now open, serving a selection of hot drinks and alcoholic beverages.'
Oh fuck off.
But while time was unfortunately on my side, in that shitty seat I came to a couple conclusions:
Best mixtape release in the last two years - 'Tinchy Stryder Vs Maniac'
Best grime track to listen to with a criminal lack of sleep - E3 Shank Shank
And E3 Shank Shank has one of the best hooks in grime.
E3 Shank Shank
I don't want to sound curt, but that's all really.
