Weekend Worstoff 21

Just another reminder of the sinister hold pap merchant Andre Rieu has over the city. This is just a small section of the wall of DVD’s. If you’ve never heard his spine shredding version of Waltzing Matilda… Imagine a trio with Clayderman on keys, Rieu on Violin, and Kenny G on Sax doing “I just called to say I love you”. Then imagine them being tortured for their crimes.
Wall to wall

Wall to wall

An eastern states worst now. What dickhead would carry a copy of Who magazine with them on holiday, then take photographic evidence? Mark Fischer of Frenchs Forrest. Mark you’re an idiot.

Who's a plonker?

Who's a plonker?

I snapped this one of the nose cone of St Mary’s Cathedral being fitted with nuclear weapons before being put in place. The sign says something about bringing the church into the 21st century. Wouldn’t that mean shrinking it, rather than expanding it? Some sort of phone booth sized kiosk would be sufficient wouldn’t it?

Another couple from Turf. I’m still not sure what to do with the volume of submissions. 2 a day, or do a mammoth post with dozens of pics? Anyhow, Turf, who still has more, snaps two worsts in one blow, with a hand painted Pepsi sign with an Italian mansion behind it in Seaview Street Beaconsfield.

And this slightly disturbing sign in Two Rocks. Thanks again Turf. Quality worst as usual.

Jump on.

  1. That last one says TWOP action. I hope they had an effective negotiator , say someone like J’Sco , otherwise I think they may be screwed on the residuals.

    Get a Bargain on Sattler’s “Struggle Street” shack :-)

    A PROPERTY owned by radio broadcaster Howards Sattler has been reduced by almost $1 million after a 10-month stint for sale.
    The Peppermint Grove house has been slashed from the “high $6 million mark” to $5.75 million.

    The colonial, two-level residence is on a 986sqm block.

    Agent William Porteous, of William Porteous Properties International, was confident the price reduction would attract buyers.

    “Already since adjusting the price we have had a lot more interest,” he said.

    “In the last eight weeks I’ve sold $40 million worth of properties, so I can’t really go around crying about the current market.”

      I know it’s an old thread, but someone on Youtube has finally posted this Ray Davies Song by the spanish group Los Cincos which features a young Albert Hammond which actually made No 7 on the Perth charts in February 1967 and describes Rattler’s House and Wealth perfectly :-)

    It’s funny, but the Website for The Reef doesn’t mention anything about the lesbian love trysts so obviously indicated by the billboard.

    And doesn’t that artists impression of the development look awfully Stepford Wives?

    Agreed, Margeryx, there is something kinky happening in that last billboard shot. I think they took the still from the porn classic “Mom and daughter strap-on action”, considered a trail-blazer for the genre – but Johnny Scrotum, as the porn industry “insider” will obviously have more detail than me, a mere connoiseur.

    Lovely unshaded dark brick north facing wall for those cosy summer nights.

    As for the Two Rocks billboard, I’m reminded of J G Ballard’s Cocaine Nights. Having recently reread it, I’d recommend it to anyone with an interest in the psychology of suburbia.

    I see the buffoon Rieu is/will be on Neighbours, playing himself. Is there no escape? I hope it is equal to Frente’s legendary ‘Summer Bay Surf Club’ gig.
