Broome Quality Cuts

Slanderer swears this is a non joke postcard he bought from Broome in the 80s. One of my regrets of this past ten years is that I never got to see how bad Broome actually is. So many people telling me it’s a hole.

    Ask She-Ra about the Cable Beach Club. Or just check the CCC transcript. It’s not trash (well it sorta is if you leave the resort.)

      Looks like the MRA to me :

      ‘ What ? ‘

      ‘ How did you find us ? ‘

      ‘ How did you get in here ? ‘

      ‘ Meat ? What meat ? ‘

      ‘ Brisket today ; Wellington tomorrow ‘

    Can confirm. Is legit. I used to have a couple quite similar from that period. See also, Gove.

    How good is Broome? I lived in the Pilbara for 12 years and never went there.

    ‘how bad Broome actually is’

    I have told you. Right here. More than once. When that photo was taken I may have been there, just off a Japanese mothership. The last of the hippies, Colin, lived on Cable Beach. A Viet vet who was a boner at the meatworks – boner by trade boner by nature – invited my then gf and I to share his motel room. We soon regretted not having camped with Colin, who was too stoned to try to bone anything.

    The best thing about Broome then – and it almost made up for the bad – were the chunky Eaglehawk pendants lathed into existence using the base of a trochus shell, upwardly extended wings are easy to do and the central whorl is a natural head and beak. They don’t make them like that any more. Every mariner on the coast prized one of these. I still have mine. I’ve fallen over many times and it’s never skewered me, unlike the Barramundi dorsal spike necklace that did for my gf.

    Broome is a dark, dark place, whose tinsel fakery covers up an underworld. RIP Manny M.
