Coot Amore

I really thought this shop was celebrating Coot Culture. It was after all Subiaco, where old coots and buffers have managed to kill off any life in their own suburb. If they are about to die, why should these young punks with their pushbutton phones and self serve petrol shops have any?

    Subiaco continues its twenty year metamorphosis into its doddering old matriarch, Heather Henderson, as surely as the po-vi vibe drains slowly down a deserted Rokeby Road at 6 pm.

    What is needs is people who are attracted by the thrills of inner city living and that means only one thing – bring back The Buzz. Sure, this is a problem for those with on-street parking but that is a small price to pay for getting those 24 hour party people back in town.

    Do they sell mainly mobility scooters? That would be a niche market (I hate that I’ve just used that term) for Subiaco, now.

    The one part of town where I would once proudly boast that the main street was an entire city with a modern railway station at one end and a great park at the other and with the entire A to Z included in between. Its headed for ‘Drab Nothingness’ in keeping with the rest of the city. And boldness shall become blandness as a heartbeat and a soul are considered as only being foolishness from another time.

You got suby all wrong !
