Dunedin Molars - Carolyn Guytonbeck

You know, mocking Dunedin is nearly a bit too easy. As if the brave inhabitants of this small- to medium-size University town wouldn’t struggle enough already with their image as the last bathroom before the Antarctica (shush, Invercargill!), their silly dialect, and – since the demise of K.C.’s –, the lack of any classy night life joint.

Don’t get me started on the other past Dunedin oddities.

Then again, some entity must have signed the permission for the erection of these stone “molars” in Dunedin’s harbour. Somebody… – or should I say thing? – thought that 6 roughly sculptured stone… thingies next to a quite magnificient harbour basin would enrich this place. And let me guess: thy name was city council, wasn’t it!

Well, poor senseless council thing: you erred. A little rule of thumb for the next times: tartar-shaped ropes are fairly reliable indicators for poorly developed artistic visions.

Robbed Clothing Donation - Ralf

Admittedly, South Dunedin isn’t the wealthiest region of New Zealand. But these donation bin drive-by robberies… guys, this is just ridiculous!

Set The Roof On Fire - Scott Savage

Ahh, good ol’ South Dunedin! Today with one of these spots that will kill a couple of pedestrians by collapsing some day soon. And one of the spots that have mayor Peter Chin written all over them. Shrieking, with The Joker-like voice, “Fuck it! Fuck it ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-hard!!”

Survive the End of the World - Scott Savage

A little bit of friendly advice how one can survive the end of the world, if this is what one is concerned about. Saner people can also investigate possibilities to survive pathetic imagery and the absence of logic.
