Fangin’ Swandogs

Bento saw these fanged swandogs at the Pica Artist car boot sale. Not worst maybe? They do have a certain ooshta and nice intertextual Perth reference. dogswans

    I like the swandogs, though they do look goatish to me. And one apprears to be sans ear. How much were these beauties selling for Bento?

      You know, I forgot to even look. I was in quite a rush to get away from the kettle drum players – that shit is only slightly less tedious than bongos, for mine.

      I thought the swandogs were ace. I vote Not Worst.

          Those swandogs are going to make things a bit tight when all 5 of us are squashed onto the Juliet balcony at TWoP drinks. The latte maker might need relocating.

              This is what I have so far.

              Thurs or Sat.

              The Brisbane or Bento’s juliet balcony. The latter now being unlikely due to recent installation of swandogs.

              Year, month, time? Nothing.

              My plan is to visit the Brissie each Thurs/Sat until I spot a group of likely looking lads and ladettes. I’ll be the one drinking Illusion cocktails directly from the shaker.

                  I find myself curious in regards to the invitational protocol Shazza.

                  Is this gala event limited to the so called “Ivory Tower Elite” or can us plebs join in the Illusion Delusion as well?

                  Surely I am not only one asking this question, its not cool to ask but it won’t worry me because I will be holidaying in Bali when the magical One Million Hits rolls on by.

                    Whilst I would like to welcome all to my Ivory Dildo’s juliet balcony, the swandogs, latte machine, mound of boots, tyre swan, and 5 hardline TWOPpers would surely be all the ooshta we can handle, or there will surely be some sort of Ballajura-style collapse. I guess I have a 0.6Tp balcony.

                    Richarbl, it’s not for me to say whose invited, but I suspect all are welcome. This is a blog of the people, for the poeple. Even fulminating whackjobs and intellectual lightweights are bound to be in attendance. I am sad to hear you will not be in joining us as I had planned to buy you a drink. I was also intending to buy Big Ram one after I beat at arm wrestling, but perhaps that won’t eventuate now.

                      Hi Shazza, thanks for the egalitarian response to my query. I think its good that all who have contributed to the site are welcome to share in the glory although TLA may have different ideas.

                      I am assuming that I will be still in Bali when the big number comes up but I will be back on 27 Nov and have a crazy idea of interest.

                      Perhaps we could have the party/soiree at my place.

                      Not so crazy, close to the train station, plenty of room for heaps of people, two laneways full of street art and a two pubs next door and not too far for Bento to stagger home. Hell, even snuff would be welcome and there is plenty of Winton for everybody!

                      If the gathering is to be on the 28 Nov then that is plenty of time to organise a party.

                      Gee snuff no need to be so snarky, I am quite willing to bury the hatchet to mark this monumentus occasion, how about you?

                      If so, it was merely an assumtion and nothing more.

                      Regardless, my offer was genuine and made in the best of spirits.
                      I usually put on a good party and I am quite comfortable in throwing open my home to everyone on this site because I genuinely thought it was a good idea.

    Snuff I will continue this thread at the end of the page because we have run out of replies.

    I will easily admit that I have directed quite a bit of “abusive drivel” in your direction, there is no doubt that I have been somewhat nasty in some of my comments, that is entirely true.

    It is also true that my abusive comments were out of character but more so a direct response to your consistent hounding of my posts.
    For some months you have given me shit on a whole range of stuff, some of it warranted but mostly not. You have butted in when you had no right to and you have successfully screwed up a couple of my arguments for no other reason than your own entertainment and countless other examples.

    Throughout this diatribe I have tried to deflect your criticisms, used humour, ignored your posts, asked questions, asked for explanations and even apologised for things I haven’t done or said. But your response has been to simply ignore all of this and to continue your harangue and then complain when I finally start to bite back.
    To put this into context…If you own a dog and go out every day and kick it in the guts for months on end and then one day the dog rips your arm off, is it the fault of the dog?
    No its not.
    But this is the what we have between us and despite this unfortunate circumstance I have still decided to ignore being treated like that dog and welcomed you to my home for a party.

    I am sorry you can’t see that.
