Ant Music

Purple Wyrm (who sent in the awesome toilet porn) sent this to me a while ago from King William Street Bayswater. The his and hers teal whellbarrows are nice too.

    Marvellous. That wouldn’t be Blake Wilner’s place, by any chance ?

    Although the rationale entirely escapes me, this puts a genuine smile on my face, unlike cow art, dolphins, or any of the other rubbish our munificent local council dictators foist upon us. Not worst.

    I bit shocking really for Bayswater, a classic piece of macvillarised old Perth suburban desert but with wide streets with rolling humps and lashings of North Cott (pines). Looks more like Bunnings Plaza if there is such a place. what is it anyway? a sprinkler?

    Pointless diatribe: “Arts grant”, he huffed. Fine for those struggling artists, whose bread and butter depends on the paltry dispensations of vestigial socialism, “but not for me”. “I’m an award winning author”, he thought to himself; of himself as a predatory sea-creature , a shark among the little fish who might dare criticize or parody his famous writing. “I’m the spirit of WA”, he thought once again, “the essence”. The Ants of Bayswater reminded him of a simpler time, when a spade was a public art project, and Aborigines still could not vote. “Those were the days”, he thought. Even if “those days” never existed, or rather existed only in the never-land of the febrile imaginations of his fans, the author was satisfied by his continuing recognition as the poet laureate of the state. Hey Tim – as unlikely as it is, I do hope you read this.

    These are great, if mass-marketed.
    I know the house, so they can’t have been there very long.
    Also knowing King William, they might not be there much longer either.

    No doubt they are Perth ants – even have the 12″ flies and Harry-high-pants to prove it. Check where their little legs pop out.

    They must be tealbarrows.

    I’m more concerned about Prawns:

    I like ’em. Looks like they’re kickin’ out some Jailhouse Rock.

    And Joshua did reveal his horn and lo the townsfolk of Baysie did quake in its magnificence.
    Joshua spake thus : “Where’s me dole youse cunts?”

    I like them.

    That they had to be sequestered behind iron railings is a worry.

    Many more worst than that to be concerned about.

    Here’s a story: my dear departed grandfather liked Al Jolsen and other black jazz and ragtime artists, and in his later years acquired (from the one and only WA Salvage, I believe) a set of little black men – a regular band, playing guitars, trumpets, and so on – that did their thing on top of one of his Onkyo cabinets. My father also bought several sets of these and, much to my horror, would gift them to jazz-loving yet far more aesthetically astute and politically aware friends of his. Said friends’ uncomfortable facial expressions at receiving such gifts were both embarrassing and priceless.
