I’m a Dickhead

Is this the level Perth’s graffiti has sunk to? No Hitler mo or glasses? Just white spraypaint and “I’m a dickhead”? Perhaps the young people of today don’t remember Hitler. Or glasses.

    the late great Ivor Cutler use to print up sheets of stickers expressly for the purpose of adorning advertising – the best being one that simply said “Funny Smell”

    Reminds me of the bus shelter outside my office recently which had one of those Office of Crime Prevention posters installed in it.

    Fast forward to one morning where the poster featuring a young male holding up an arrest identification card had been dotted in red pimples, and some extra words added to the aforementioned card. Juvenile humour at its worst.

    Bring back the anti-littering symbol which replaced the trash with a nazi swastika, which started appearing in 2005/6 at the time Jack Van Tongren’s posters started cropping up over Perth – again.

    Jason’s suit already said enough ….

    Perhaps the vandals were just infuriated by the text :

    “Experience for yourself” – as opposed to experienceing for ???

    “The best of both inner city living and cafe convenience” – wouldn’t they usually go together anyway ?

    Don’t be fooled, this isn’t graffitti. I’ve worked with real estate agents and this is what’s actually behind their face-like masks. They have to protect their true identity in order to make sales. truth is stranger than fiction.

    I would quite like this graffiti if the person who committed it remembered the little apostrophe. It’s a very direct way of making your point, though.

    having read young Jason’s biog,

    having had the pleasure of leasing a property through Acton Mount Lawley,

    being familiar with the shabby flats on Beaufort Street whose views to “The City” will soon be blocked off by the six storey units on the old Civic Theatre site,

    I fear that I must agree with the character assessment of the chirpy scrote who defaced the sign.

    Jason is, indeed, a dickhead

    where can I buy a polyester suit with electric blue pinstripes?

    Whilst it’s easy to see this as a stark lack of effort on the vandal’s part, it might be a bit more subversive than we think.

    Our vandal friend here may be a post-modern genius of an artist, fighting against an artistic hegemony of photo-realistic penis drawings. Why conform to the brand of Sharpie-scribbled scrotums when you can make a devastating commentary on our text-driven society, and the perpetual simulacra of hand scrawled dicks on unsuspecting faces?

    Who decided that it was a good idea for real estate agents’ portraits to appear in their ads? A leaf through Saturday’s Worst indicates that the photos make every single one look like either a Hollywood Mafioso or one of the undead. It’s even worse when they’re on signs in glorious technicolour.

    young Mr. Ryan’s photo adorned an ad on the front page of my Guardian Express this week.

    a quick once-over with the Typex and a biro and it now matches the billboard.

    he almost warrants a TWOP entry of his own under “Worst self-aggrandizing fool”

    skink,
    It’s not Mr. Ryan who’s the fool, it’s the daft buggers who get conned into believing that his brand of community parasites are in the business of doing their clients some kind of favour.
    Along the lines of “I want your business and I’m prepared to pay for it.”
    Different trade but all-along-a-same.
    Watch the “Gruen Transfer” on Auntie for a cynical view of the topic.

    I know how it works – and I don’t believe for a minute that there is any kind of advertizing professional behind any of the ads put out by Ryan, John Hughes, Rick Hart or any of the others that try to get their mugs in print or on the TV. Any professional would tell them to get someone who is properly voice trained, but my bet is that these guys want to promote themselves ahead of their business.

    I thought last night’s episode of Phoenix Nights was a better expose of the way these local business work than the Gruen Transfer.
