Aberdeen City Centre

Recommended Posts

I was on Union street earlier today, was like a scene from the Walking Dead! some amount of loon balls and dodgers in Aberdeen these days, that's before you even get to the beggers, young Asian women begging, never seen that before, what's that all about!!

 

Is it because I'm getting older I notice more or is Aberdeen going downhill these days?

Crazy guitar wifey still on the go?

 

One string Mo?

 

I miss shaky heed manny, he was a hero.

 

The old man with white plimsoles who used to dunce at the big junction on King street was always worth a chuckle, think he lived in the old doss house just along from there.

 

The bandage legged wifie who used to be always seen in town hails from Bucksburn, think she's deed now.

 

the oddballs of old though are being swamped by a new breed of dodger, they're everywhere these days! :sherlock:

What about the radger that used to cut about the Schoolhill area in the 90's with a bag of glue over his face, is he still alive?

 

He was quite entertaining as he went about menacing posh university types.

Even Highlander is on his way out, I very rarely see him these days, although that said - first time I'd seen him in a very long time was last week in Bridge of Don when I was at my training - stinks of over usage on the Lynx like.

 

Wonder what goes through his head. Wake up and think 'hmmm wonder what I'll put on today'.

 

He's a bizarre individual.

 

Shaky heed manny was the best though, pity he died - used to love wandering down town at 6am absolutely blitzed and watch shaky heed manny running down the street with 2 hula hoops, hungry hippos game, a Super Nintendo controller and a few other bits and pieces he'd accumulated....all whilst he's wearing a ladies dress.

 

It was truly bizarre, and I always used to think I was tripping.

Aberdeen city centre is really nice.

 

You lot will complain about anything.

 

I'm not saying it isn't nice, just that the proportion of dodgers to normal folk seems to be on the rise!

 

Not that it affected my enjoyment, I quite enjoy seeing jakeys and chronic alkies go about their business.

Has anyone spoken to him?

 

Is he approachable?

 

He gives me the fear - can just picture him pulling out a claymore and going mental, just because it's the patriotic thing to do.

 

Any idea what his job is and why he constantly dresses like a fucking jacobite?

Saw Highlander is ASDA Bridge of Don last week.

 

Still battling away.

 

Guitar Wifie got her name onto the Limited Edition Tennent's glasses, how the fuck did that happen?

 

The real annoying cunt is the boy that comes up asking where the Soup Kitchen is then tries to tap you for money.

I work in the city centre and the Cynerians Charity place being in such close proximity to Union Street ensures the city centre has a healthy contingent of wackos week in, week oot. :nutso:

Her brother worked with pigs, he always had a blue boiler suit on, he got banned from the Four Mile because he stank, I thought it was out of order, harmless bloke.

 

Think they're both dead now, not seen them in years.

Rumour had it she was more than a friend to several late night bus drivers! :blink:

 

 

btw KSL, my nephew was questioned by police yesterday over the Bankhead school fire, would make the family so proud if the loon is found to have been involved! :sherlock: I never liked the place anyway, i'll congratulate the daft lad in prison if he turns out to be the fire starter.

The toon was mobbed as well, do people not have jobs to go to!?

 

I've noticed this when I have ventured in to the city centre in my lunch breaks or on days off. Guess there are a few things that cause the amount of people in town:

 

- Students

- Oil workers (rotations)

- Unemployed

- Pensioners

I personally think Aberdeen is a complete dive - a city that thinks its better than it is.

 

If it wasn't for my job I would be out of here like a flash.

 

The Highlander is called Paradona, I remember reading about him in a magazine, think it was that Aberdeen magazine (vox??). He was asked who is idol was in the interview and he said Mel Gibson after seeing Braveheart! :hysterical:

Highlander can often be seen surfing the net at the Brig o Don library across the road from the Black Dog.

An utter shit hole.

 

I came up at the weekend about 2 weeks ago, it was the first time in a few months and I couldn't believe the state of Union Street. It looks like something out of The Scheme.

 

It's also hoaching with neds and riff raff - thon cunts should be rounded up and sent to a gulag in Peterhead or somewhere similarly suitable...

To be fair big man, only in Edinburgh have I seen people going through the ashtrays on top of the bins looking for any spare tobacco, when I see that in Aberdeen I'll know we've hit rock bottom! :sherlock:

 

On a couple of occasions I was close to handing over my packet to the poor buggers, only my grippy Aberdonian instincts kept me from being charitable.

Don't get me wrong Edinburgh has gone massively downhill in recent years as well. It's not all it's cracked up to be anymore.

 

But the case of Aberdeen is particularly sad because I remember as a kid Union Street being a smart place. I think we have some of the nicest architecture in Scotland, all that granite and pish, we could really make something of it, accentuate its features, but nae cunt bothers.

 

It's the fuckin cooncil, they da ken fit their deein.

I agree, raising the gardens would be a good start, shops would reopen and money would flow back to the centre once they do that, at the moment it's heading in the same direction as George Street.

What about the wifie that used to beg outside Fopp, cross between having a cricket bat skelpt across her face and Mauro Camoranesi.
