Ling My Bell

David Fucking Outrage RottoBloggo Union think-tank  Cohen gets another one up – that’s two this week, but his suggestion of Guildford’s Stirling Arms (The Ling) for New year’s Eve was too good to resist. What could be better for a scorching Perth Summer night than sweating over a searing hangi, and then sweating over The Ling’s skimpies until the late hour of 7pm, leaving plenty of hours to sit at home grumbling until 2009. Or in the case of TLA, going to bed at 10pm. Speaking of Kiwis, some of my “real” New Zealand photos from my recent trip are up and can be seen here.

What worst will there be for 2009? The seam of Worsts seems never ending. I do want to get into the ferris wheel with video and stills as soon as possible. If anyone sees how to book tickests, let me know. Thanks for all your support this year. Hope to go bigger, better, faster and worster on your arses for next year. XXXXXOX

    Courtesy of The West :-)

    I am assuming that tickets will be on sale at the ride itself.

    The wheel will stand between Mounts Bay Road and Barrack Square for two years. Mr Todd said it would initially operate between 10am and 10pm but hours would change according to demand.

    Rides will cost $15 for adults, $10 for children aged four to 12 and $3 for children aged two to three.

    I wouldn’t be surpeised that only the skimpies will be between 1 till 7pm, but the hotel itself will be open till Midnight as I’ll bet the owner didn’t want to pay them triple for working New Years Eve all night, or in fact the Ling were unable to get an extended trading hours licence and are opening under a Sunday/Puublic Holiday Licence.

    I love getting one up for you, TLA.

    And She-Ra has got a big one up for you in 2009.

    See you at the ‘Ling in a few hours, Frank?


  4. Bento says:

    Mmm, a hangi sounds mighty tempting. I love my dinner to be delicately infused with the flavour of urine and ashtray run-off.

    Unfortunately no, as I have family here from Bunbyry, so no going out – not that I do go out much at night anyway.


  6. David Cohen says:

    Oh come on Frank. You’re as bad as Rolly. Bring the family along – the ‘Ling is for the whole clan!

    Balls to all this Ling business. I’m heading to the Carlisle, where they have “Skimpy”, that’s right, singular! Oh yeah, hold me back baby. I’ll be needing new underwear by the time 2009 rolls around.


  8. The Bayswater didn’t provide skimpy one…


  9. Rolly says:

    Ye Gods, You’re a sad lot!
    But let’s hope that 2009 don’t make you’se no sadder.
    Merry New Year to each and everyone.

    Sometimes the Basso pub stays open until 9pm!

    I can’t believe the ferris wheel will be open until ten? At night? That must be a misprint, afterall it’s nearly dark by then.


  11. Anonymous Perthon says:

    I went and it was an effin misprint – I watched two hours of Skippys Dance Show. Man that roo has some moves though…


  12. Rolly says:

    Got you hoppin’ mad, did it ?


  13. Bento says:

    I think there may be a picture of that roo elsewhere on TWOP…


  14. Frank Calabrese says:


    Not my pics but someone has posted some happy snaps of THAT wheel :-)


  15. I listened to She-Ra on 6PR. It does sound like she’s getting the first ride.


  16. Bento says:

    Fnarr fnarr.
