The Worst of Perth TV. Monster Kingswood Theatre

It was the incarnation of blind and insensate Greed. It was a monster devouring with a thousand mouths, trampling with a thousand hoofs; it was the Great Butcher–it was the spirit of Capitalism made flesh.
Upton Sinclair

Well if The West online can have West TV (Gawd save us) Then The Worst of Perth needs to match it. A Monster Kingswood Station Wagon? If I didn’t video it, I still wouldn’t believe it. I had a more ambitious production in mind, but the Microsoft editor only has ONE audio track. Jeez, you think for free they’d provide a mixing track. I include a still for those unable to access youtube at work. The monster wagon also goes past an East Perth sculpture that has been suggested worst before AND The Chinese Embassy. You won’t see this on West TV.

    Jazz? Like, seriously, Lazy dude. Surely a 70’s car in Perth warrants the Dugites.

    hey, who’s been dissing the Rubik Snake sculpture in East Perth?

    I rather like it. It is an impossible triangle – at one viewing point opposite the embassy all the arms line up to form a triangle.

    Next time you go round the roundabout, concentrate hard on the sculpture. The point at which the arms line up is the point at which you lose control of your vehicle and drive into the pond.

    also, the Chinese embassy is regarded as one of the better bits of recent architecture – it was recommended by Wallpaper magazine as one of the few things worth seeing in Perth (but they are a bit wanky, that lot)

    love the Kinswood – not too hot round the corners though – bet you’d get seasick

  3. You are right Tony. I had a much better audio track made, with dialogue, but the first free editor wouldn’t wouldn’t save it. Had to just dump one audio track onto the microsoft editor.

  4. Yeah Skink, i don’t mind the sculpture which is why it hasn’t been up. The embarrassy isn’t too bad. i’ve had to line up for visas in there a few times.

    Hey LA,
    There is a similar kind of Kingswood station wagon modified vehicle (in a fetching maroon colour too) that seems to reside on Sheparton Rd in Vic Park. I often see it on the way into the city. I like to think the monster truck look (along with the fact that it is parked on the verge) is purposely designed put fear and trepidation into the hearts of morning commuters and demonstrate that the owner could drive over traffic jams in an instant!

    You should cross reference this to all “map of Tassie” comments.
    That’s where the monsters originated, I believe.
    Cunt of a car at best.

  7. I think it is amazing that, A, it got around that corner (love the indicating) and B that someone spent a lot of time and money raising a Kingswood wagon off the ground.

    It’s the overlander Torana hatchback with the tray where the hatch used to be that makes me go “WTF?” I’ve seen it in Morley once or twice… Fugly thing with no obvious redeeming features at all, but someone thought it was a good idea…
