Re: Ian Smith: It's a shame Adelaide is crumbling.

Yeah so I was going to pick this apart bit by bit but then realised I couldn't be bothered. So instead I'll just say isn't it amazing how someone can say so much and yet actually say so little. What a crap way to go out. Oh look, one more post. Because it's funny, I'm bored and I hate you (and I ta...

Re: Ian Smith: It's a shame Adelaide is crumbling.

I read this article when it was originally published and sadly agreed with all of it. At the risk of being labelled a "troll" (which I have been unfairly accused of before and is a term thrown around on here a little too liberally for my liking), this article is spot on. Will's initial response was ...

Re: Time to rename the state?

I'm sorry, Me is confused. Is this a serious thread?
Yes I'm afraid it is. You can tell by the pungent aroma of self-loathing.

[COM] Re: PRO: Victoria Square Upgrade

City Cross? (Rundle Mall Area) Hindmarsh Square? City Central Plaza? (behind ANZ) NO NO NO! It's North Terrace. I would've thought it was obvious. It has all the kinds of cultural institutions Fed Square has, but real, and it has heritage awesomeness as well as being a pedestrian space. This is for...

[COM] Re: PRO: Victoria Square Upgrade

This city has long been called backwater - and although it helps - it certainly isn't going to bring tourists or much foot traffic to the area. That's the Adelaide imagination and enthusiasm I'm used to! None whatsoever. Woohoo! Based on what? Back to the loch with you Nessie. And whoever it was es...

[COM] Re: PRO: Victoria Square Upgrade

This may not be "the place to be"by the time Adelaide's makeover is complete, but it will certainly be on the list of places to be, and that's important. Adelaide doesnt want to be a one dimentional city with one central location, in fact its precisely the sort of city that it is currently trying t...

[COM] Re: #PRO: Victoria Square Upgrade

the design is really nothing special. it could be any old suburban park. FFS. Your typical Adelaidean right there. No, actually it couldn't be any old suburban park. Simply because it's Victoria Square. Back to the loch with you Nessie. This is way better than I thought it would be and is a good pr...

Perhaps we should approach Pisa about being a sister city. They're Pisans; we're Pissants. It's a great marketing angle! LOL as they say on the world wide internetz. Wasn't there an idea a whiles back that was for covering the Mall a bit and using that cover as a walking thoroughfare so people coul...

Re: Mawson Lakes - Not just another suburb

In my grumpy (young man) opinion, whilst Mawson Lakes looks like it's "not just another suburb", it's simply an Ikea suburb. You get designers in to make it look like it's not shit, when it actually is. Delfin are doing exactly this suburb in Melbourne and no doubt every other Australian capital (ex...

I'm hoping this is what people say it is and is just a the precursor to a magnificent multi-storey development for actual people. That's right PEOPLE. Adelaide has the highest amount of carparks per capita in Australia, which is ridiculous. How many more do you need????? Anyone who thinks this is ju...

Lol, when George saw my post he said, "Uh-oh, Queenie's got her petulant voice on.." I think my reaction reveals that I was probably feeling a bit silly I've been thinking about this, and you might be right that I'm overreacting about the idea of covering the mall (though it's still not an option t...
