For a hundred years or more, Midland, has been dying. And not one man, in these last hundred years or so, has been crazy enough to put a bomb up the asshole of Midland and set it off. Centrepoint is rotting away, dying piecemeal. But it needs the coup de grace, it needs to be blown to smithereens. Not one of us is intact, and yet we have in us all the continents and the seas between the continents and the birds of the air. We are going to put it down — the evolution of the Midland station precinct which has died but which has not been buried.
Henry Miller Tropic of Midland
Nice try Midland. Very nice try, but I think a tropical paint makeover was a little ambitious. I would have gone with a boot stamping a human face forever. Haven’t been down Midland way for a while. This is one reason why. If you are a Henry Miller fan, let me recommend Opus Pistorum.
