Sight & Sound

Because so many people will be driving back past this today, here is the Mandurah train sculpture. (I hope I haven’t put this up before). I don’t think it’s soooooo bad. Worse is the fact that the train doesn’t go all the way into Mandurah. The thought of having to queue for a bus at the end is enough to make me think, “Fuck it I’ll drive”. Many associate this piece with Alannah. It won’t be as noticed soon, as they have finally almost finished the bypass to bypass the Mandurah bypass, which for some reason they designed to be narrower than the original road.

    Very useful possessive apostrophe, TLA. I could have found myself perusing electronics next time I was after bait and a monster make-up handbook.

    Throughout the entire imagining process, did no one suggest the Mandurah piece was a little, erm, phallic?

    I prefer this sculpture to the one at an earlier station, near Cockburn I think, which has the massive photos of random people’s faces. They look like they might be missing persons. I understand their faces are a montage of typical local residents -but it doesn’t do it for me.

    Damn, Jane beat me to it. The Audiocom building (or ex Audiocom building) is on Gt Eastern Highway in Midland.

    I saw it a few weeks ago but didn’t have a camera with me.

    Just found this ad for Sunraysia Cranberry Juice which was a staple on Ch 9 when the parent company owned the station.

    Ahh, the joys of nepotism and conflict of interest.

    The train doesn’t go all the way?
    Didn’t know Virgin Rail was operating in Perth!

    After catching the worlds emptiest train which could also boast as having the worst scenery I wondered who it was that was scratching their beliefs on all the windows.

    One thing for sure is that the hardware stores must think that engraving is proving extremely popular with the uneducated and those who wear caps.
