There’s a crack winding back

Country Bandit saw this celebration of 1979 between Collie and Bunbury – deep in Rurotardia. Maybe it was paid for by rurotards for regions loot. Thing is, it doesn’t look 30 years old. Or even 5 years old. Has 1979 only just reached the banjo belt? A bit disappointed Country B couldn’t have waited til say the horse was being knobbed by a goat, or the cows were mid crap, but in any case marvellous. Now to clarify, the banjo belt would extend from say, Bunbury, inside it being the serial killer zone and the bogan belt at Armadale right?way 79way 79

    Oh my god is that Bunbury?

    Well spotted CB. I quite like it on a not worst kind of way. Can’t say I’d want one at mine but I would like to see it taken up by the stencilling/poster graf types & pasted up & down teh arrondissment.

      A local variant of hipsterist irony.

      That just what Teh Arrondissement needs right now, WAY79 stencilled all over the walls and pillars of the Planet’s various satellites.

      That’d be just too kewl for skewl.

    It keeps on keeping on.
    Or maybe, like some of the Aboriginal rock art, it gets periodically refreshed.
    There’s something strangely endearing about that weird logo.
    Before it was “adopted” as some deviate’s gravatar.

    Not not worst, but definitely classic. It looks lovingly touched up.
    re the belt – wouldn’t it extend to the Gosnells ice district

    has that black cow got a head at each end?
    are the royalties for regions being spent on genetic engineering?
    “introducing Brendon – the two-faced cow”
    wouldn’t it have been better to engineer a cow with two arses, since everyone likes rump steak?

    I’m sure I’ve seen that graphic up at the Mukinbudin BP, deep in the heart of wheatbelt rurotardia. That one definitely was from 1979, and so was the diesel I paid top dollar for.

    fuck youse. That’s still a proud symbol in the country. The black represents the farm ute; the gold represents all the money we earn working fly-in-fly-out on the mines; and the red represents…
    ‘hey, darl, what does the red represent?’…
    ‘No,no, it’s more like a magenta, or burnt pink’
    Well, anyway it’s still a proud symbol.

      Thank you – you’ve pre-empted my question about the colour scheme. I like your answer.

      Maybe Tim Winton could find another way of expressing it?

      As the gold makes him think of the wheat, nodding in the sun. The black shimmers like the sun on the rippling feathers of a swan, doing majestic things while the everyman character stands pensively on the shore, distracted by his need for a bladder / bowel movement. And the red is the fluttering knickers that Chook snowdropped off the line behind the house of the person who does a souldestroying job with a delightfully archaic job title to modern ears… and red again the face of the priest down the pub when they turn up in the meat raffle prize. (with an aside about old school Cathlicks and stereotypes of Catlicker beliefs in general)

      Reading up to get ready for Rising Lunch is not helping me too much – I wasn’t in the toughest mental condition as it was, now I’m afraid that my braincells have been busy king hitting each other in an attempt to make it all stop…


      • RubyRuby says:

        However, I do admire the volume of his work that he has had published and that, I just wonder why I didn’t move somewhere with a home-grown Christopher Brookmyre type. Maybe you need conditions to be more grim, with fewer dugongs and less decent surf?

          Scotland RR?


          • RubyRuby says:

            I use CB as an example of a writer who has gripping storylines and who I can get excited about reading when I hear there is a new book on the way. Someone who will have something different each time, but of a certain readable standard.

            But as for living in Scotland – I like vegetables and non-fried food too much… and sunshine is a Good Thing.
