So what did we build this city on?

By johnboy 7 May 2009 46

Say what you like about Allawah Court, it seems to generate a better (or at least more lyrical) class of graffiti than the moronic tagging found in more well to do neighbourhoods.

On Ainslie Avenue today I noticed this one proclaiming “We built this city on smack and roll”.

While I’m not one to ever disparage the misquoting of Starship, I feel the assertion lacks evidence (leaving aside the Legislative Assembly).

So if not “smack and roll”, of what was this city built?

What’s Your opinion?

I was referring to your comment, s4anta.

And forgive my ignorance but when I googled the name Hugh Lewis all I got was some ballarat geneology website. Guess I’m no rocket scientician…

we probably built it on a legless lizard habitat and a sacred site so we’ll be cursed for ever and never get an a-league or afl team here.

Hence the “I was bored, sue me” quote, AJ:) Oh to have a job where i can play with lyrics all day….

In reality I think the answer to JB’s question is ‘a whim’.

I’ve got no idea what they built it on … all I know is I’m glad that they built it when they did. If you tried to do it now some whinging NIMBY butt-wipe would probably come crawling out from under a rock to carry on about non-existant issues that were impacting on non-existent amenity of their meaningless lives.

And pot. Don’t forget the pot. Pot pot pot.

Silurian Rugosa?

Well, at least the creek at the airport is…

alluvial sediment, igneous deposits and tectonic plate shifts

with vulcanism thrown in for good measure.
