Patrons are reminded that this rickety barge is kept afloat by the kindness of strangers. If you’d like to help it remain buoyant for a while longer, there’s an orange button below with which to monetise any love for this low establishment. Debit and credit cards are of course accepted. For those wishing to express their love regularly, there’s a monthly subscription option top left. Additionally, any Amazon shopping done via this link or the search widget top right, or for Amazon US via this link, results in a small fee for your host at no extra cost to you.
For newcomers wishing to know more about what’s been going on here for the last eight years or so, the reheated series and greatest hits are good places to start. There you’ll find wonderfully neurotic tips on interracial dating; a not-at-all-racist Guardian columnist complaining that living among white people is a “psychic burden” and worse than being mugged; and a Marxoid academic attempting to make you feel guilty for reading to your children and thereby causing “unfair disadvantage.” You’ll also find some unconvincing nostalgia for collective parenting in an Islington squat, some bizarre misremembering of a popular 70s sitcom, and a terribly radical artist who’s subverting “oppressive discourses” by, er, amplifying his trousers.
If you can, do take a moment to poke through the discussion threads. The posts are intended as starting points, not full stops, and the comments are where much of the good stuff is waiting to be found. And do please join in.
Again, thanks for the support, the comments, and the company.
