“Nobody ever lives their life all the way up except bull-fighters.” Hemmingway – The Sun also Rises

Yeah I can dig it. I don’t know what it means, but I can dig it. The Veronicas are Falangists? I can’t believe it. Not really much excuse for it now Franco is gone. Crushing of unions and Communists may make a comeback I suppose. I’m sure Charlotte’s Web were never Falangists. Thxs Slaadi.

    I suggest The Bakery does suck as a venue for anything other than an art exhibition (and I think that part might be called The Breadbox).

    The acoustics are awful and the layout abysmal.

    So this graffiti is, in fact, a service to the good people of Perth.

    Like this one, 2 insults in the one sentence.
    Pitty about the spelling;


  3. skink says:

    isuspect that in their haste to be witty they have merely misspelt ‘flange’, in the same way that you have garbled ‘Hemingway’

    your penance shall be to skull two glasses of Death in the Afternoon before supper.

    I do however like the mental image of the Veronicas wearing fascist uniforms, drinking from the furry cup.

    would that be a Carlist Clam Bake?


  4. stu says:

    The Veronicas suck Spanish political movements? How odd.



  5. I had added that link already Stu. I wonder if Skink might do a photoshop of The Veronicas sucking off Phalangists behind a bullring in 1930’s Spain. (No, please don’t.)

    What do expect from those hipsters that hang out at The Bakery? Being intelligent is never cool. Why else would you ride fixies down William St without a helmet????


  7. I did find a literary reference in For whom the bell tolls.

    “You only heard the statement of the loss. You did not see Jessica sucking off Juan. Her hair brushed back like a boy. Or watch Lisa giving handies by the stream where the fascists died. After being sucked off. You knew the father was blown in some courtyard, or against some wall, or in some field or orchard, or at night, in the lights of a truck, beside some road. You did not see the mother clam baked, nor the sister beaver dammed, nor the brother jobbed. You heard about it; you heard the moans; and you saw the stains.”

    TWOP is so educational. I hadn’t heard of flange before.

    I can’t say if Charlotte’s Web were Falangists: the former cellist is not answering her phone. She may be operating on a rabbit’s penis.

    But I do know her favourite Hemmingway book is The Ssnowss off Killimmanjarro.


  9. David Cohen says:

    Philistines. His short stories are the go. You haven’t lived until you’ve read The Short Flangey Life of Francis Macomber.


    • skink says:

      actually, I think you’ll find that “Hung like White Elephants” is generally regarded to be the definitive example of short story writing.

      don’t call me a philistine you … git.

    Strangely enough the only thing that i didn’t understand about this superb piece of street philosophy was the reference to Falange. So just like anyone else who hasn’t got a fucking clue I googled it. Turns out Falange is a Spanish political outfit from the early thirties, not sure of the connection to the bakery and the veronicas and I still don’t have a clue but it seems I am not alone


    • The link had already been googled for you Rich. The most likely reason found is misssspelling of flange as pointed out by others, with a link to that meaning if required.


      • Grrr says:

        *looks at Wikipedia*

        A flange is an external or internal rib, or rim (lip), for strength, as the flange of an iron beam or I-beam (or a T-beam); or for a guide, as the flange of a train wheel; or for attachment to another object, as the flange on the end of a pipe, steam cylinder, etc, or on the lens mount of a camera. Thus a flanged rail is a rail with a flange on one side to keep wheels, etc., from running off. The term “flange” is also used for a kind of tool used to form flanges.

        I have a new respect for The Veronicas.

        No, actually, I dont’.

    Thanks for the heads up TLA. Upon rereading my comment could be perceived as personalising rather than generalising, shall be more moderate in future

    ‘A Moveable Flange’ is a goodun, very readable…
