Images of Canberra – Well someone had to do it.

By johnboy 13 November 2008 38

This one’s from the fence around the huge hole in the ground where the Civic Greater Union cinema used to be.

This was old when God was a boy. But it’s nice to see the memory remains.

I have also been fascinated by Prout since childhood.

I wonder where Canberra’s oldest surviving graffiti is?

I remember the laneway near Bladed Menswear in Civic had some political graffiti which was there for a long long time until it was eventually painted over not that long ago. Something along the lines of “Prout’s ____ is society’s panace”. Perhaps someone can fill in the blanks? I’m too young to remember who Prout was. Nor could I tell you the definition of “panace” for that matter.

If Bill does send a cease and desist letter to the-Riotact, he’ll probably slap 20 copies side-by-side on Johnboy’s front door with lashings of wallpaper paste.

heh!

You’re right, caf! I bet there are subliminals in there as well ….

Granny, it’s hardly your fault that you’ve been subconsciously turned against Mr Posters by The Man’s relentless propaganda campaign!

Granny 11:19 am 13 Nov 08

Gosh! Lots of them might sue me!!

*chuckle*

I sense a word is missing.

Just read “this” instead of “the”.

I sense a word is missing.
Editorial typos (and glaring problems in articles, Jb knows what I’m like) just get my goat.

Granny 10:05 am 13 Nov 08

I love the Images of Queanbo feature!

Jb, maybe i’m suffering an elderly moment, but what does the sentence “The was old when God was a boy.” actually mean?

As in, it’s a really quite lame thing to write, because people have been doing it forever. God was a boy a very, very long tome ago.

There’s a road sign in Crawford St, Qbn, that always amuses me. It’s a roadwork sign with the stick-man digging, and someeon’s written below it “free dirt”. If I ever carry my camera there I’ll get a pic, for the regular Images of Queanbo feature.

Good point, Ari! … *chuckle* … There may even be a Bill Posters!! I should Google him ….

Personally, I’m not so sure that Bill Posters is innocent ….

As with so many threads on Riot-act, just be mindful of the defamation laws before commenting.

Ive known Bill for a while now and have always thought of him as being a bit dodgy.
