A backwards step towards vibrancy

I knew our post vibrancy progress was to good to be true. Here we are going back to just bog standard vibrancy. We’re better than this. The release from She-Ra’s lair, “Temporary art enhances the vibrancy of the urban environment in fun, interesting, and interactive ways,” Ms Scaffidi said…”

Yes, but we are post vibrant. A granite plaza baking in the sun unrelieved by shade, bench or other feature. That’s a wink and a nod to our yokel boorish vibrant past, yes. A couple of crossed cocos leaves seasoned with piss, yes.  This…not. Yeah it’s fine, but what part of post vibrant are they not getting here?

    Some sort of promo for that Mad Max thing, I assume.

    Looks like Troy Buswell is driving again.

    I might be wrong but a real Princess of Power doesn’t put out press releases.

    …and the Commodore-through-the-front-of-the-house syndrome continues to spread throughout the nation.

    Dance of the Balgas. Proud erect and prickly. Meant to intimidate visiting Carlton fans. .

    Utter rubbish. I mean seriously, this sort of thing might happen accidentally at a rubbish dump and it’s being sold to us as art? What next? Burnt out double decker buses imported from Tottenham?

    ‘I don’t think there’s anything wrong with it’

    Neither do I, apart from the missing engine, wheels windows etc would probably pass a rego check. Could do with a new paintjob though.

    Ex ‘Sculptures on the Beach at Cott’ and hence the heavy rusted finish. You would choke on your chips if you knew just what ‘Spundoola’ $$$$$$$$ this heap of crap returned its Mastermind? And this simply says to me that not only are the sophistication levels of this city on an equal par with Fitzroy Crossing (as I’ve always believed), but also answers a question as to why I’m led to believe that Mogadishu politely declined a ‘Sister City’ request. A cheerio to all in sunny Fitzroy Crossing and to all in beautiful downtown Mogadishu as well.

    Is this art by Howard Rattler? “How many blackboys can you get in a commodore?”


  10. you'll get wet says:

    The Commer van and Commer door joke is of NZ provenance predating both the Commodore and Russell Crowe but possibly not Sam Hunt.


  11. Sir Bill International says:

    A heartfelt cri de cur reflecting on Perth’s Po-Vi status. Would be better with some C&B, and other graffiti , for example “$50 a tonne, Alan Bond lives, or no pole vaultin for Caitlyn”.


  12. El Guisto says:

    It would be fantastic if only someone was living in it. And any car wreck is not complete unless there are a few empty beer cans rolling in the breeze.

    I should know well enough by know to check TWOP rather than start my own rant on facebook.
