Walk of tugs

Stirling Council is proposing a walk of “fame” from the Astor right up into the rub and tug precinct of Inglewood. Plaques and states celeberating prominent West Australians. Possibly prominent WA willies that have been tugged. Why don’t they just throw money away building a mini Kokoda Track? I find myself sighing, although shithouse bronzes of awful wa knobs would be material for many many months. Jesus. The guy that had the dinosaur Christian Internet cafe (now a massage centre) should be so honoured. What was his name? Abs is prominent in that area too isn’t he? A bronze Mainy howling at the moon with a half eaten Chicken Chow Mein in his hand. One can hope. Alannah maybe? Someone said to me, “But maybe this time it will be good?” Yes. It could be. But no, it won’t.

    I also like this: “There have been other attempts in Western Australia to create a Walk of Fame which have failed to attract significant visitation.”

    Perhaps because it’s just such a completely rubbish idea that it maybe shouldn’t be considered in the first place?

    Mainy holding a plate of blow , and of course Lanny’s got her statue to Eros.
    Here’s she shown with her leg out on Beaufort St.

    It’s important that any plaque or statue be removable. Along with the pomp and ceremony that must feature with the induction of each person thusly honoured there should also be a recognised format for the subsequent decommissioning. This is necessary: e.g. at various times, Rolf, Cuz, Bondie, She-Ra, Laurie Potter, Mainy, Brian Burke etc etc would all have been plaqued with much accompanying civic pride. And then quietly discarded. i think we are big enough as a community to celebrate our mistakes publicly. The annual shaming/de-plaquing could be quite an event.

    Alphabetical order for the showbiz walk of fame…….it’s only fair.

    Louise Antonis, Barry Barkla, Gary Carvolth, Peter Dee(not Dean), Eric Edgar Cooke etc. You get the drill.


  8. Slanderer says:

    Cinema City is being demolished at this moment. I think we are all diminished.

    Put a statue of Ralph (I’ve been a bit of a naughty boy) Harris next to the big girls school…..he’ll be right at home ;-)

    Red dog a must. Red used to come down to the wharf at point sampson and catch our lines, he’d catch the monkeys fist in his mouth run with it til the eye came over and slip it on the bollard. Sometimes he’d go out for a tucker trip and do night watches but he’d get bored because he had no dogs to talk to on the radio, jump in the water and swim to a bulk carrier, hitching a ride to Japan. He never went ashore in Korea or it could’ve been all over red rover.
