I may be forced to go back to 7 days posting, on some weeks at least to deal with submissions and other stuff I want to put up. I was thinking about using Sundays for websites. They don’t usually qualify for TWOP, as they are not original material, but there are some exceptionally bad Perth websites out there. I really like ones that combine hideous design with idiotic content. If you’ve ever read the West letters page, you will often have seen someone called Mark Ward boo hooing about how downtrodden men are by their evil feminist overlords. He is the convener for the Men’s Confraternity. For convener, read “plonker”. For confraterity read “losers”.
Much more amusing, though even more loopy than the band of blubberers at the confraterity is the hidden mysteries website, which I have mentioned in comments before. Like the confraternity, it is also a masterpiece of shit design. Apparently The Belltower, and perhaps the whole of Perth is a Freemason’s conspiracy. Or something. From the author, who could be HP Lovecraft by the sound of it.
Alarm bells rang for me when I first saw the bell tower design in the West Australian newspaper and increased by many decibels when the ‘new’ design was foisted upon us. My curiosity and limited knowledge of sacred geometry, secret societies and ancient myth was aroused and the further I investigated the affair the more ominous (and obvious) the plot appeared.
And I thought the Belltower was all about Dickie Court having a tiny todger. the site is quite old, so TWOP may also be doing a service by archiving the Belltower’s sacred geometry.
