I should give Orbea a rest, but his blurry shot from the front of Laminator Tard House née Lotteries House was too good. You may remember Lotteries House City West, where there are 20 plus laminated signs for every employee, with turd curdling inanities concerning the use and misuse of toilet brushes, soap dispensers, urns and coffee grounds accompanied by the worst clip art. I hope by now that someone has rammed the laminator up the arse of the turkey responsible. Don’t worry, the ethics committee would clear it in a second.I did have an ethical quandary over whether to leave the phone number in or not. I was tempted.

    That’s fantastic! Considering how many Eastern States actors are chosen for WA Lotteries ads over WA actors (as both on screen talent and voice overs) I’m not surprised by the sign. Although the sign is probably in the window of some struggling group who don’t need to be hassled.

    Yeah well as far as I know there are three main ethical theories: utilitarianism (Bentham; Singer), deontology (or rights based theory – Kant; the UN), and virtue ethics (flakey cunts). Hard to see how the Lottery Commission tax is justified according to any of these accounts. Gonna win me a Powerball now, I am.

    I don’t know about ethics, but I do know and admire pieces of the 70s when they’re this amazingly intact

      I hope that magnificent palm tree is included in the $395K-$435K price…

        I don’t know about any trees… they had me at the turquoise carpet.

          That house it hot town RubyRuby! I love that carpet. It would hide any spew stains from any parties. The bathroom looks like it was designed by Barbie with that strawberry pink everywhere though.

          The kitchen reminds me of my parents old kitchen. They had splash backs in the same vibrant orange and wallpaper in a similar design, of jars and utensils. The gardens have a very Italian look, being wall to wall pavers and concrete, and very little grass.

              Late 20th Century Immigrant Nostalgia?


              • RubyRuby says:

                Would the Immigrant part of that be responsible for the yellow glass windows tricked out to look like stacked bottles? Is there a pithier description for this effect? It seems to occur as a motif at least thrice…

                Immigrants from the “Good Ol’ USA”?
                The ’70s fashion in decor was almost all straight out Yankee-Doodle, with a bit of Pommy copy for added nausea.

                  Not the part of the USA I ever lived in.

                  That was all “shed-style” Charles-Moore flagstone-paving Last- Days-of-John-Cheever “Ice Storm”-looking stuff. Which I hated at the time but now admire, particularly in comparison to the swollen Postmodern horrors that followed.


    • The Bartender's skills with a Manhatten says:

      “Rumpas room?”

      “Walk in?”

      “Walk in robe?”

    I’ve always thought that the main beneficiaries of the WA Lotteries Commission were the ad executives.

    Why Is Orbea anyways annoying me, i agree to give a rest but does anyone know he always seems to have a real nerve around me and NF1.
