Which is sadder. The paint job, or the hoodie clad type doing it? Remember it’s taken a year to go from concrete grey, to vomity orange yellow, back to grey again and now to this.

    Fuck me, here we go. Has a bit of Yarnbombism about it. Absolute worst.

    In a deliberate snub to the original ‘artist’, i note ‘vomity orange yellow’ is the only colour of the Pantone palette not now featured.

    And the “R” and the “E” still look like they’ve been the innocent victim of some more of the Troy Buswell driving experience. You’d have thought they would have fixed that prior to painting.

    It’s a sign.

    What a pile of cunty shit,especially when you have to sit there on beautfarty street in traffic watching the fucking hipsters ride past on their fixes admiring the ‘cultural piece of Shiite’ they call art.
    I would rather write bad villanelles while pretending to ge George Gissing than look at this monstrosity

    I like it! I actually really do like it (and this is the 1st I’ve seen of it).

    Also it was never grey before becoming vomity orange as it was a stain within the concrete, not one applied to it.

    I’m also fine with the rabbit; it’s the self-congratulatory concept-art wank that really shits me.

    I don’t think it is art, is it? It’s just a really big ugly concrete sign. I even wonder if they got the dimensions wrong and only realised after they’d started the pour. Because for the word stre to look like that? It completely lacks continuity. It actually just looks like they suddenly realised they were going to run out of room and improvised in a hurry. I think that is what annoys me about this the most. If it was meant to look like large letters dropped from the sky, then have that theme running through the whole piece. If it was meant to be neat and straight then make it ALL neat and straight. It has ended up looking like a 12 year olds tentative venturing into block writing and they didn’t plan before they put pen to paper. I actually really like the idea of messed up letters, with a sort of apocalyptic feel. But this is just a massive fail in every way. Yuck……I actually hate it. I do, however, wonder if it will become one of those landmarks that people learn to love. Like the space ship on Leach Hwy (May it rest in peace) or the Middland brick house on Great Eastern. But I think not. Those things were well made and interesting.

    at a mere $150,000 piss-take of ratepayers money, I’m sure council will be very proud.
    I mean they have been busy taking accounting lessons from the Labor Party I’m sure…..
    their latest fuck up……oopsie the $3.4 million surplus they said they had in the budget was meant to be a $3.4 million deficit.
    now they have been told to get the books balanced by the end of June 2015, their answer is to not do some of the shitty planned stuff and to “cut some essential services”
    then they have agreed to a pay rise for themselves
