song of the day - Korma Coma by Aziz Ibrahim
So here is part 2 of my little ode to Manchester. Part 1 can be found here.
Now, I do love Manchester, but that don't mean I don't know it's rough as fuck sometimes. It's home though. Sorry about my french, but in a post about Manc you can't leave out the fow language, it's too much a part of the place. Seriously, I'm pretty sure if Zippy Santa could speak he'd be calling us all 'fucking twats'. Some of the people you come across in town make me proper chuckle, others make me want to start throwing punches. I think there's something in the water.
a bengal tiger to the left
an salford to his right
a fella from aldelphi
screamin for a fight
with his belt round his knuckles
his hat pulled down
he’s king of the scuttlers

The Albert memorial is right in front of Manchester town hall. This monument just fascinates me. It's so beautiful and intricate, I can't even imagine the time it would take to have made it. Apparently there's a similar monument to this in London, one day I'll have to look for that.
Of course, with the weather warming up (ha!) there are roadworks everywhere.
