Write what you know

Once upon a time it was a rare treat for a Brockley thing to register in anything resembling mainstream media. Even Time Out couldn't be bothered. Now, thanks to the collapse of traditional media models and the need to churn out user-generated lists of stuff, Brockley resisdents have been able to turn the tide.

So it is that Arlo & Moe finds itself in The Guardian's best coffee shop top 10 (well spotted Monkeyboy) and the MOT garage's Maya Angelou makes it onto Buzzfeed's list of literary graffiti (thanks Roger). Keep it up people. Greater Brockley's continued success demands total sensory domination.
