The Mailbox















After the cricket, we went to the Mailbox, a newish development in central Brum. It can't be faulted really - mixed use, live-work, nice design, walkable, good coffee, attractive restaurants... I used to be embarrassed of my home city, but really, Birmingham is not at all bad these days. Its just that accent...

Not all of us have the accent. Which is probably why I didn't realise you were, like me, a Brummie. If you're still there take a look at the Custard Factory in Digbeth and the Ikon Gallery in Brindley Place

The accent is terrible. Think about national newsreaders, narrators on documentaries, voice-overs on adverts - you hardly ever hear brummie accents. Meanwhile almost all the others have been accepted. They just sound like dumbasses. I hope you've lost yours.

Hey Doc. You still in Brum? It'll be nice to hook with you.
