Flat White, Carriage Cafe, Fremantle

It's good to see these guys are still around. I don't agree with a lot of their points (a skate park will not necessarily result on graffiti, in fact people graffitied things long before the invention of the skateboard - furthermore, to paraphrase Police Academy 4, skateboarding is not a crime) but with so much terrible coffee in the world it would be a shame to see one of the good places go under.
Whenever i hear Django Reinhardt it just reminds me of those lamb ads from ten years ago with the butcher inside the window and the woman outside and the subtitles. And then a dog comes up to the window and the butcher says, "Sorry, no bones." Yes, advertising is destroying music. Why do I remember an ad from last decade when I hear the song, instead of thinking, "Wow, that guy only had two fingers on his right hand. What a badass. Why can't I play guitar like that? Are these two superfluous fingers just getting in the way?"
