Weekend Worstoff 93

“Shonquice”,  resident at Perth 6000 has a Nowegian friend who snapped this church in Karratha, one of the vilest towns in the country. Check out the lovely photo of derelict Perry Lakes on S’s blog too. David M sent in this artwork from Midland. No shot up the dress David?Phill saw a nice chair tagging in was it Cannington? Ironically a pathetic attempt to make a lasting reminder in the city, now will be remembered for ever here after all.And Dani saw some nice signwriting. Worst well.

      shazz, i think it is one of quite a few sculptures that are dotted through midland, particularly around the workshops and the town centre. they are all about the way people used to work and live in midland.

      sometimes i like them, sometimes i don’t. it’s worth a drive out there to check out the art, there is quite a lot of it.

        Thanks for the tip curious. Truth told, it would have to be art of a very special calibre to get me to Midland. In the spirit of my new found positivity I should add I’m sure Midland is a good place to stop to grab a drink on your way through to the hills or Swan Valley. Much like Bunbury is a good stopover for a toilet break on the way to Margaret River.

          i understand shazz – i love the old workshops and get to visit occasionally for work, but midland i prefer to just pass through.

    Most brilliantly somebody obviously corrected the sign writer on the spelling of diesel as the first A is on fresh paint,

    “Yeah that’s heaps better ay”

    There’s so much worst about, …..”it’s everywhere, it’s everywhere…” just like ChickenMan.

    Getting potable water from a Jeep, even with a manual air.con cold electric whatyoumightcallit, is a rare achievement.
    Getting anywhere in a jeep without excessive expense is, too.

    I don’t mind the sculpture either, but the signwriting is definitely as worst as Karratha. Yes, it’s an excellent con, but what’s OBO ?

    I drove past those chairs the other day. They’re right across from the train line, I think near the Welshpool station?

    Nowegian?

    I think it should be Yeswegian, in line with shazza’s new mood of positivity

    your tweet should read the USS Carl Vinson

    I remember that weekend when it was in Freo maybe about ’92

    I had never seen so many ugly women on the streets in my life, and they all got a root. Many of them several.

    loved the Salinger-Winton tweet

    now that he is dead perhaps we shall at last see publication of Salinger’s long lost surfing novel.

    I think of Religion as one single concept. This concept in its broadest sense produced Angkor Wat – and the Karratha church. I wonder if the Karratha church produces a spine tingling moment when you see it in person for the first time?
