Swapping Blood for Excreta

Someone sent me a phone pic of this (was it Bento?) that so made me think 92.9 was going all Bennetton on our arses that I had to go snap a shot of it myself.  Since the billboard has been replaced with a non blood version, I am assuming that the station’s agency isn’t that innovative. Am I old fashioned to think that unless these two are fur wearers, excreta would be the generally recognised medium for this kind of artistic statement? Perhaps too hard to get a spray up so high? If it had been Garry Shannon, I might have been tempted myself. 92.9 is currently involved in a rather lame attempt to get a giant quokka on Rottnest. Perhaps it’s a lover of Rottnest?  This issue covered by Rottobloggo, with a quokka constructed by The Lazy Aussie himself. (I’ve become third person to myself now I’m an influential content maker.)

Suspiciously close to the Adrian Barich graffiti site (Jeez I love every opportunity to relink to that world class worst), which has been suspiciously free of anti 6PR graffiti lately.

    Unrelated, save perhaps with reference to bodily functions (if one were to be so moved to make such a comparison) but I can’t help wondering who’s in charge at The West.

    One the way into work in the car they announced a new editor (or a recycled one) from The Sunday Times.

    Then I find the page one headline of today’s West covered over by a sticker directing me to page 8, where I can see an advert for some sort of banking cartel.

    Over the page one headline (which now reads “St sh pu servants”).

    Did they old regime head down to OP’s Tavern for a few quiet ones leaving the advertising department in charge?
    Because this is the kind of cranked-up, money-driven advertiser-is-king, journalists-are-all-red-ink thinking I expect from their kind.

    It’s some sort of outrage….

    (I never saw the Em and…. Some Guy billboard splashed with paint…. pity).

  2. Oh, you got that too? Thought it was just us. Might put that up.
    Well that’s the value of TWOP, trivial outrages are recorded for posterity and your benefit.

    I’m not sure this is trivial.
    It’s the dumbest newspaper stunt since…

    I thought the reason for above-the-fold headlines was to catch the reader’s eye, to entice them to buy the paper.

    Even Brian “200pt” Rogers thought the headline was important.

    I guess in a monopoly town… who the hell cares what the header says? We’ve got no other real choice on what newspaper to buy.

    It’s at least disrespectful to the reader market.

  4. Moved to its own post. Thanks Grrrr. I meant the graffiti trivial. The sticker stuff is monumentally stupid.

    I don’t think the phone pic came from me, although I’ve sat at those lights several times thinking: “I really should take a phone pic of that and send it to LA. It’s just the sort of banal idiocy he appreciates.”

    Sans blood, Em looks like one of the blandest people I’ve ever clapped eyes on. I must admit to not being familiar with her work, audio-wise. But unfamiliarity has never stopped me from forming an opinion before, so I’ll go out on a limb and assume the 92.9 breakfast crew are shit.

      Quokka puppet is fantastic, of course. How does one make a new puppet appear to have been dragged around for several years by a childs?

    The fella looks like he’s on the gear in the TV ads. He has a very goofy walk.

    …Or does he look like he’s on the gear on the billboards? I can’t remember now, can’t really tell with those photos, obviously.
