Wrote a piece for Teh Architect Journal. As did Alannah and She-Ra. If you thought mining journos can drink, I’ll put up an architect against them any day. From the various chats I had, (although I may have been babbling to myself in the dunny mirror), Elizabeth Quay architecture wise will be even crapper than expected. Also ditto re: Yagan Square. In any case, none of us were expecting anything more so no wukkaz my Diggaz.

    Elizabeth Quay, Yagan Square stuffed up : quelle surprise. Notes of explanation to the listener ( with ear-piece cocked) : Sir Andrew McDonald is Prof. Emeritus of Architecture at Curtin University. The Architect is the journal of the Western Australian division of the Australian Institute of Architects.
    What is the pissup about ? Who know.

    But it’s going to feature Swan Island, which will be in the shape of a, wait for it, Swan, and if that doesn’t scream “class mate”, then I don’t know what does.

    I can’t believe that I’m actually witnessing a slow moving train wreck happening in front of my very eyes. A failure being put together as only a failure can be put together in this parochial village. ‘Elizabeth……. Swan Island…….. Waggle like a duck jetty’ and perhaps soon to be the most mind numbing of all stupidity. Empty cable cars taking empty people from an empty place up to another empty place to do nothing and then bringing them all back again and wasn’t that just “Oh such a brain busting tourism experience that I think I’ll just have to wet my pants”? Tell me that its not just a rumour that the conference centre is set to be demolished and my sanity might return. Else its just ‘Barf’>>>>>>>>>>>……

    So which of these sultry charmers is the renowned ‘Krazy Kim’ L.A?
    Reminds me somewhat of a pre Glasnost choke and puke I once had the (dis)pleasure of attending back in my diplomatic days. Of course, everyone there was dressed in party brown (tip to younger readers: never wear brown, how far have any of those polit bereau types got)?
    I do fondly remember Irina the waitress, whose kgb husband threatened me with 40 years in a gulag for my ardent gazing at her huge bazookas….by gad some of those Russki girls are healthy specimens….but I digress….

    “…glorious post vibrancy…”

    Not in Nepal, though.
    It will be a long time before they get over the shock(s) of the century.

    Please send help.
