Rolling Thunder! She-Ra opens Northbridge Piazza!

This superb Perth worst from Ms H, deserved to be saved up, but it’s so topical, it needs to be like nowsville daddyos. Ms H says…

I went to the opening of the northbridge “piazza” tonight. it was billed as an “exciting” event. It was really very tedious – choir of little kids singing, lady on stilts blowing bubbles, people rolling around in those giant inflatable ball things. Look at the photo – even She-Ra looks bored! She was about to be interviewed by the weather lady. She can barely contain her excitement.

Actually Ms H, Lisa She-Ra Scaffidi is having an orgasm. Only long experience of Council intriuging, (and a leopard skin bag) allow her to conceal it. Stilts? I hope they were genuine Freo stilt union members.

I like your “” around the words piazza and exciting Ms H. Couldn’t have “” better myself. Why is this spot the answer to Melbourne’s ultra crappy Fed Square, when we’ve got the derelict Cultural Centre a few moments walk away? Why would you want to compare it to Fed Square anyway?  They’ll be evoking Venice again in a minute. You can follow Northbridge Piazza on twitter too if you wish.

    Where’s the microbrewery? I won’t be attracted to go and be vibrant there if there’s no microbrewery. We were promised a microbrewery.

    Commentary from ladies’ corner unrelated to vibrancy issues:
    you’d think someone who spends as much money buying clothes in order to fulfill their elected duties as she-ra does could afford to pay an adviser to advise her to look in the mirror before leaving home & take off one thing. In this case that necklace, but she could also turn down the cuffs which clash horribly with leopardskin.

    The mayor’s dressed like a weathergirl and the weathergirl’s dressed like a mayor.

    To throw in a little bit of positivity about la grand opening, the pyro juggernaut organ show was awesome.

    PL, I think the micro-brewery wasn’t able to get a liquor license so they canned it in favour of a cafe/alfresco diner, which is still being built. However, I could be wrong about this.

    I quite like the ololo artwork too – possibly a slight nod in the direction of “Vlamingh scared by duck”.

    Comparisons to Fed Square are null and void until I see Big Fev parading around the piazza with an inflatable penis. Vibrancy for sure!

      Ditto YouTube star Pogo with his Alice etc – awesome. Unfortunately, both were on too late. Most of the kiddies had gone home to bed by then. Hopefully the programming will be more family-friendly in future and not leave the good stuff until everyone has buggered off.

      The kids loved the bubble-making stiltwalkers and the “membranes” (people seemingly sewn into giant gold condoms) – I couldn’t help thinking that for all the millions spent on buildings and technology, the big hit was the simple stuff.

      I’m totally stoked about the big screen, although it does tend to pressure us VJs into going outdoors in the daytime, which I’m not too happy about.

    The Piazza…
    To be honest i am worried that it is not in keeping with the states heritage values and that some changes are required.
    I feel that the addition of a few “no drinking” signs would help. And a Teflon coating a la the Cottesloe pylon…

          Anyway, we don’t yet have TV with “Smellorama” and that is a critical component of the ‘Italian experience’, as anyone who recalls the smells of fresh bread etc. emanating from the “forno” in almost every street, will testify.

      bloody marvellous, Frank

      clearly police need extra powers of stop and search, and perhaps an armoured car, to find all the cannabis that nobody is carrying and perhaps find the screwdriver that caused that small stab wound to somebody’s arm.

      public urinating is clearly the most serious problem affecting Northbridge.

      unusual that no juveniles or mentally ill people were tasered or detained for laying hands on a public officer, although the guy with the machete is probably lucky that he didn’t get backfried.

        Actually, it wasn’t the 1st thing that popped to mind…but no point going into it!

        I see the cunt was on tv last night diatribing the usual “no pain no gain” cunt-dribble. She wouldn’t know coz she’s not a real worker who has to frequent the cunthole that perth is – like the emerg workers and buses and trucks and cabs. Nope…she sips munted caffeine beans and waffles about being a “destination”
        Perth had a lot more life even back in the 80s when the shops shut at 12.
        Some things I fondly remember that drew many different groups in were the “bog lap” incl No3a car-park; Bernies (not sure how that was spelt – Burnies maybe); real and actual cinemas and lots of them; grungy pubs like Alberts and Foxy Lady; clubs and pizza bars on Murray St (east and West); bikers (not bikies) all parked up displaying their wares on Murray st central before the mall killed it; roller-skating rinks and pin-ball parlours; Coles cafe.

        Yes, I know….we’ve “moved on” to further spew out a left-wing-scaffidiism” BUT all of this grit made the city enjoyable and suburbanly global rather than a fake fuckhole for scaffidi-loving coffee sippers. Someone kill the cunt please!

        Of course, I probably just wasted nearly 8 weeks composing this rant – I had to learn how to spell swear words ‘n shit.
        And now that the author of this site is in love with she-ra coz she gushed in IC – I’m even further up against it. But please oh free speechists of this shiteholecuntriddenexcuseforacity – please let my rant be published!
