Parklet Mania

Are parklets really good for anything? Except for depriving honest Sigma drivers of three parking spots? Here is one outside the otherwise excellent Crow Books. Modelled on a detention centre . Would anyone even sit in this prison? Does anyone anywhere ever use them? More than people would want to park there? This one is particularly terrible. By Cimbali.

    Someone has finally taken a stand against the scourge of literati ram-raiders. So sad it had to come to this, but I’m afraid it was inevitable. Enough is enough.

    Well all you bookworms gone bad, how bout them apples. Try getting your Skoda or e-Bike through THAT.

    I love how the PURPLE blends in with the entire surrounds.

    The elegance that is cut-down shipping containers.
    Re-used timbers from wharves and old warehouses is so-o-o last year.

    Never a Muslim truck driver around when you really need one. Could this be a new 457 Visa category?

    Tacky Perth…. Tacky….. A city slapped together by owner builders who think they are trendy and modern but nowhere in their DNA might ever be found a scratch of sophistication or a sniff of skill or a fart of class or a snot rag of style. There has got to be a paper written one day, on just what is the common denominator of those who scrap to get onto councils. I believe it to be a requirement that they have no understanding whatsoever of the meaning of the word ‘taste’.

    Serving cold filtered single origin coffee in a yarn bombed Sigma up on concrete blocks would actually be pretty cool. Provided the push button AM radio was permanently tuned to 6PR.

    Naturally we are only waiting for the vibrant sunken parklets of Bayswater to take off. Hopefully this will be the election issue. Or at least a BBQ stopper.

    I think it was Skink who said once it’d take more than some folding chairs to make vic park appealing. That said, at least they’re trying.

    Unrelatedly, I am glad to have to be at work tomoz as my brain will melt if I read too many more lunatics on the internet with too much time on their hands and too many theories about the Claremont killer, but fucked if I can make myself stop reading. I think they should expedite the trial just for my own entertainment.

    I sat in a parklet in Northbridge once while waiting for some friends. People walking by looked at me like I’d lost my goddamn mind. 0/10 would not recommend.
