Come on Perth, I thought we were Post Vibrant now? We are backsliding back to pre vibrancy. 4 examples.
1: The shitty bronze of Governor Stirling,(recently shamed as some kind of Pedo by Dodgy Perth – the Gov, not the statue) unveiled by Prince Charles, had mercifully been relegated to storage. Some bright spark wants it put back in the centre of the city where there is such a dearth of shitty bronzes, that the public is crying out for one we thought had been got rid of.
2: A new venue called Jack Rabbit Slims is to open. Were there not more original ideas or names available? Maybe Moes Tavern? Or how about Cheers? Nice to be given the heads up that the proponent ran out of ideas before even fucking starting.
Ditto East Village. You are in William Street not New York. Take your Bronx Pizza and mason jars and fuck off.
And someone asked for a comment on the proposed flange based public artwork for Elizabeth Quay. Would it really be too much to ask for a piece that people would actually want to come down and see, rather than another lame tame space filler? (although I did like this artists piece outside StGeorges Cathedral). How about we put Pedo Stirling there instead?
