Will be on the radio today on RTR arts program around 10am, talking about 10 years of The Worst of Perth.
Obituary or valedictory?
Congrats! Any chance of a transcript?
Whee, a shout-out! I’M GONNA BE A STAR!

Well, this seems a good time and place to say that I’ll fucking miss this site to bits. I found it soon after coming back after a decade in Sydney, which was really hard to do, and it was really valuable to have a reference point of reasons why coming back was possibly not so terribly bad. Because it’s always been about the potential of Perth and the underlying reasons to begrudgingly love it, not just about its utter craptacularity.
And as I’ve got older and busier and better connected, Perth has got incrementally less awful, and we’ve met somewhere in the middle. I guess it’s settling. But still.
I’ve had lots of genuine pleasure and joy from TWOPers. I’ve loved having submissions published and enjoyed by others. I’m sorry not to have met some of you because I reckon we’d get on, and I’m sure you know who you are. I think I saw TLA at Curtin once but didn’t say hi. Don’t know why.
Massive thanks. I love youse all
Janez please leave while you still can, before it’s too late……………pleeeeeaaaasssee
Am with JaneZ except for the ‘ incrementally less awful ‘ bit .
Eternally sandbagged local machers of low profile and high ( eg Murrays , Broadfields , Kinsellas , Parkers and even She Ras ) are gradually replacing the aspirational tang of yesteryear s Perth with a financialised and overpoliced generic dutch-american urban theme park they can escape for lush unruined places whenever they choose .
This may not make TWOP obsolescent , but should have raised and broadened its target in the future it will not have .
Love youse too JaneZ
Loved the interview although a bit disappointing that it wasn’t libellous. And no cuss words? Now that would have been a good way to go out, taking RTR down with you.
I was able to say that we have the worst street art in the world.
able? Was your interview vetted? Not a word about Subi, the (former) Emperor, Kalamunda, Buswell et al.
It was only for about 15 minutes man
Hmm, your site doesn’t recognise me anymore? Is this the start of the great unwinding?
Maybe we should crowdsource a permanent street tribute to WoP, I guess in either Baysie or Kalamunda?
A mural would be nice, but I don’t think anyone has a ladder.
Umm … we use cherrypickers these days with traffic management too
