LAST NIGHT...WAS SHIT.

This might sound like an unnecessary speech but I'm that scarred it has to be documented. And I'm apologising in advance for all the American slang. I'm not begging it. I've just been spending alot of time with Yankees lately.

On Thursday, I went to Yoyos (London one not New York) for the FIRST TIME (shock horror to all you yoyo vetrans out there) and for me it was THE WORST NIGHT OF MY LIFE. NOW OF COURSE TO EACH THEIR OWN, if yoyos is your spot then good for you, "do the damn thang" but I myself found it incredibly TEDIOUS. To make matters worse I had a feeling it was going to be like that so actually going there just reaffirmed what I had once thought. But in the circumstances I was in (I was already near my friend's house and she was paying for me) I thought I might as well experience it. I rolled up in my lac i.e. The London Underground and got in at about 10:30 to find two dumb broads at the door doing lil synchronised dances wearing nothing but a Teacloth. I wanted to run there and then but I thought to give the place a chance. Oh how wrong I was. It was filled with an army of pretentious heads all wearing the same ol' rope chain/bathing ape wearing, "80s baby" but realistically was born in the 90s and has no recollection of the 80s, glasses with the lens popped out, bright coloured, doorknocker type shit that Im seeing all too frequently nowadays, what's ironic about it is that the majority of them like to claim they're "original".

The music was CRAZY BAD (sounded like Baile funk/polka mixed with someone dying) and was sang over by some guy wearing cheap hair extensions attached to his badly shaved head. Hardly noone was dancing except for the coked-up minor celebrities (nodding their heads aggresively and sweating by the buckets) and some fat girl wearing a flourescent tutu that was WAAYYY too small. The place was over-crowded, the majority were too busy focusing on what other people were doing then having a good time. I left after 45 minutes.

The last straw was when some boy started talking to me and in realising that I'm currently working in New Era, asked me what days I'm working there so he can come see me (sorry what?!), proceeded to ask me where I go out and where I buy my clothes and then told me he has to be "exclusive and buy all his shit from Japan". Get the fuck outta here.

P.S. apologies to all the people who were trying to cheer me up that night. It really wasn't going to happen but you still carried on like a soldier.

Asantewa said...

haha! If only I knew what I know now the whole situation woulda been severly AVOIDED.NEVER AGAIN.

To be honest Josephine I didn't give a fuck about those people before I went yoyos and I definately don't give a fuck about them now..so if they wana come down..they will be admitting to themselves that they are the "ol' rope chain/bathing ape wearing, "80s baby" but realistically was born in the 90s and has no recollection of the 80s, glasses with the lens popped out, bright coloured, doorknocker type " people that I love so much!

Asantewa said...

and when i mean never again it would have to be a pretty good reasoon for me to step in there i.e. a friend of mine is DJing or a birthday, or a barmitsvah..other than that NEVER AGAIN.

OLL!E said...

"80s baby"

josephine said...

i love that disclaimer...so basically if i see a picture of you on someone else's blog in yoyo having the time of your life next week, it's ONLY because it's your mate jimmy's bar mitzvah! you can't let jimmy down now. x

Queen B said...

I had a shite night out on friday it was the celebration of Big Dada records. Roots Manuva was a big fat dissapointment. I so was looking forward to it.... I wish you could get a refund if you genuinely don't enjoy something!

Amazing G said...

Tronics said...

King Solomon said...

You've been about for 3 months and your talking...

smh

Asantewa said...

"You've been about for 3 months and your talking.."

sorry King Solomon?? because i've not been going to clubs for years,does that mean i'm inept to decide on what I CONSIDER (it's MY OPINION idiot) is shit or not??....i didn't think so either.

p.s. I'm not hating on kesh's bday either I hope she had a good one.

josephine said...

haha I think I am josephine! but seriously though it's my opinion and my opinion ALONE, I don't want people to think Im trying to boycott/sabotage or hate on the place...like I said in the blog if Yoyos is your favourite place to go and have fun then good for you! What another person might find enjoyable, another person may not.

DIANNE said...

shit i thought the 80's baby neon-wearing scene only plagued LA and NY!

Anonymous said...

YoYo's is wack, agreed. It doesnt matter how long you have been around for. Wack is Wack. Sometimes good things must come to an end. There is no vibe in there anymore WHATSOEVA. There used to be. Even though it was never really my thing. That night has been running weekly for years. Maybe 5 or so. Did you even clock how fucking bored the djs were.....being there is like watching children drink warm piss out of plastic champagne glasses

josephine said...

"being there is like watching children drink warm piss out of plastic champagne glasses."

beuatiful simile. and funnily enough EXACTLY what i thought when i last went there. kids drinking warm piss out off plastic champagne glasses. actually, in mine, they were drinking out of polystyrene cups. and it wasn't piss, it was jizz. but pretty much the same apart from that.

josephine said...

i meant to spell beautiful wrong above. it was, er...ironic. yeah.

king solomon said...

You've been in this 'scene' for 3 months yet you feel the need to talk....

I'm all for opinions but as a scholar once said;

"opinions are like noses everyone has one"

Phoebe said...

18 comments?!! Fucking hell! Who knew YoYo's could cause such a commotion?!!
XX

josephine said...

i'd love to know about this magical 'scene' that you speak of. could you let us know what it is and who's in it...and more importantly WHERE CAN I SIGN UP???!!!

ok, i'll stop with the sarcasm now.

but king sol (i feel i can call you that) i will add that i've been 'about' (i.e. a frequenter of London's fine club scene) for over TWELVE YEARS and i think that yoyo is drier than a desert nomad's back foot!

Anonymous said...

u chat shit fullstop. behind ur computer and in real life. get over urself. u've known ur "friends" for 3 months aswell as being able to go out. and only begged a job in new era for they hype! ur a joke.

josephine said...

here we go...another 'anonymous' running up their mouth in the wah blog comments! i'm getting flashbacks...

Anonymous said...

guess the truth hurt!AAAAAAHAHAHA

josephine said...

i just deleted your offensive comment 'anonymous' - we don't normally believe in censorship here but if anyone else read it i'm sure you'll agree it crossed the line.

this topic has been approached in quite a light-hearted manner so far...if you're not down with that then please go and read someone else's blog.

ANON said...

this isnt a direct insult to the blog. but in reference to the person in subject. i suggest you find more suitable people to write on your blog instead of "just" arrived kids who insult larger people by calling them "fat". its offensive that u have such immature and quite noticabley fake people posting blogs on what was once a very good blog page. that is all....and asantewa...learn some manners!

Anonymous said...

agreed

Anonymous said...

I was the funny ' warm piss' anonymous guy. My name is actually Anonymous. ... I dont mid fat people. ..So Josephine, they were drinking your jiz out of polystyrene cups, or there own jiz? N asty

josephine said...

it was kind of a combination

josephine said...

by the way, that comment was an example of me 'raising the tone' of this blog.

Anonymous said...

so, you buy a pair of dead jordans and glue them to your feet. one dead lumber shirt and sew it to ur back and u believe that you have the right to insult other people.

how about you go back to the rock you crawled under. stop begging your way through the scence. its sad. get some real friends and a real identity.

its ppl like you who destroy whats good. leeching on to things, loving the hype.

im sure there are many people who will be sooo glad to know you won't be at yoyos again. thank goodness. a night is what you make it. ur sad if u go somewhere just to see what ppl are wearing. so what if they wana do 80's??? do what most ppl do have a drink and fucking dance.

its a shame. i thought the ppl at wah would have more sense than to allow jump on the bandwagon fakes to write for them.

josephine said...

awww mate, allow it now. it's a new day and all that.

josephine said...

if you wanna make a personal attack on asantewa, which you clearly do, then i'm sure she'd be happy for you to send her a message on her myspace. in fact i KNOW she would. at least that way she'll actually know who you are rather than you attempting to cuss her out while hiding behind an anonymous identity.

Phoebe said...

Josephine, you should disable the function that enables you to leave anonymous comments on this blog. Maybe then you'd be able to filter out the unnecessarily bitchy comments from cowards who are too scared to insult an 18 year old girl to her face.

SHAR WAH! said...

i've disabled anon posts. Lets keep the comments constructive pls. this isn't a playground. and asantewa, as amember of WAH blog, has the right to say whatever she wants whether we agree with it or not. I invited people to this blog to contribute in a rich and diverse way. I think we have a great rounded team that cover everything. xx

Rebecca01 said...

I thought the WAH ladies were was meant to be all about the girls doing there thing and respecting others for doing their thing!!
But, it seems like at times you talk it but don't really believe it, now I know, sometimes we all fall short of our own standards and say things that don't need to be said and end up hurting the feelings of others for no reason other than we were pissed, but...

You went to YOYO's, didn't have a good time, I know, I've been before and hated it too, but so what if the girl in the tutu was fat and it was a couple of sizes too small. Did it offend you that much!!
I think we girls need to stop looking other girls up and down and then judging them by their weight!! Its so sad.

SHAR WAH! said...

agreed. im closing this thread now.
