A basin of Mainys

I sometimes think that it is only here on The Worst of Perth that Mainy is still remembered. I mean really remembered, not brought up as some sideshow to Ben Cousin’s descent into the third circle of Esperance. Nobody else is really getting what the dude was rapping about. You can show how you really dug what he was putting out by shelling out $350 for this signed photo of Mainy, apparently resting on the surface of the water at The Basin, Rottnest’s only really shitty beach. By Natalia Fan #1. Nice shot.Very nice glimpse of the (always) empty novelty scotch bottle btw. I have left it clickable for larger. Mainy just looks like a bit of a dickhead wearing bad shoes, letting off a beer fart, in a very poor tricked up photo unless seen large. Seen small, you just want to shake your head and mutter “poor cunt” under your breath. Available at an arrondissement antique shop near you. chris mainwaring

    I like that it’s badly copped to fit in a regular cheapo frame, losing half the signature.

    nice colour balance on the photoshoppong too. Was his head really that small?

    Is that a feature wall? This is how I’d like to be remembered, but with more water damage.

    I think of Mainy every time I go for Chinese.

    If only Cuz had actually bought some chicken and sweetcorn soup, sweet and sour pork and large fried rice when he said he was coming over things could have been different.

    Mainy left a big hole in the Geralton cultural landscape.
