The Feeling of The 5000

Weekend Update.

Phew, what a week. Worst of Perth hits surged past the 5000 mark in 10 days. Suggestions and submissions pouring in. Yet to come, Serbian Orthodox retirement homes, concrete aborigines, butchered churches, laughable information bays… – I can’t even remember half the stuff I have to get to. Chewing through upload quota and camera flash memory like a one armed arse kicker at a lesbian wedding. Once again the search engine terms amaze, here some from today. I love “brothels in perth?” with a question mark, like they are hoping that maybe, just maybe, there might be a knockshop in the city?

Here’s a worst of Perth Classic for you. Kingswoods parked at the long gone Vegas Hotel, on the corner of Scarborough Beach Road and Charles Street North perth. Now is a McDonalds/BP.


Ahh the memories. (Crap memories: It was a crap pub).

    Oh my god – somebody was actually looking for the cityside christian church? A very lost soul indeed!

    Congrats on reaching the 5000 mark, the only way you could have reached this milestone more quickly is if you had called the site “Worst Perth Uranium”.
    Roll on 10, 000. W of P.

    No, the ultimate would have been Perth’s Worst An*l. And if anyone is thinking of registering Perthsworstan*, forget it. It’s mine I tells you MINE.

    Are you saying that it is Oz aboriginal dot painting that is popular in Bali or the locals are doing it?


  5. lazyaussie says:

    Hi Les. The locals. The Balinese will be doing Aboriginal hip-hop soon too. (others, this is from a junk for code topic). Link on right.

    #1 Golden1. I kid you not, someone just came through in a search for Bunbury Brothels. maybe the same person.

    haha funny that

    Interesting blog mate…..I was brought up in Perth some 45 years ago or as I like to call it” Regurgitated there”

    I will have to check in and see how bad it has become.

    Balinese dot paintings…I bet they are cheaper! Many years ago when I lived in Alice I would often go and paint with a group of aborigines that painted dot stuff for local galleries. I was well taned then so went un-noticed and kept my head down when the gallery owner popped in. It amuses me to think that some of my contributions are hanging around the place.


  8. lazyaussie says:

    Les, it’s an interesting topic. A non indigenous artist could not (openly) paint with dots now. They would be howled down, but the dot style has spread to other indigenous artists even though that technique of painting only came from a very specific area.

    I have some contenders for Perth’s worst painters, to be posted when I get to them, but they are whiteys.


  9. meccano says:

    Warhol, Koons, even Renaissance painters paid others to do their work. It is a very interesting area. Saw a doco recently about the Perth Graff artist who paints the Wandjina symbol everywhere, he is non-aboriginal and yes there is an uproar.


  10. meccano says:

    By the way you can also buy “ethnic african” art in bali also. I think the practice is economic rather than artistic, although if they sold Jeff Koons rip-offs that would be the very definition of postmodern.

    #9 Have a wanjina on a perth motel coming up.


  12. Les says:

    hey whitey’s

    funny about them dot paintings

    I have always tried to spirituals the cotton bud…..but I cant quite fit it into a spiritual relationship with my dreamtime…..but I guess I am being sarcastic now….I guess I should stay away from you guys….You are a bad influence on me

    Please don’t be a stranger Les.

    L.A, So close to the 10,000 mark. It only seems like 12 days ago we were at 5000. Can you tell us anything about who is actually reading this blog. It seems to have rung a chord with a lot of people.


  15. lazyaussie says:

    A lot of search results, (apart from brothels). Because there’s reasonable traffic and wordpress blogs are well indexed by google, someone looking to buy say letterboxes in perth sees the link on the first page, and many cannot resist hearing the worst in something. Here are some of the search results today.
