Coppery

Jah Teh just got a fright. No hon, it isn't about you.

I said in an architectural forum that I would reserve my judgement of the new building at the corner of Carlisle and Acland Streets in St Kilda, but at this stage, well a week or so ago, I am not liking it much.

  3. Someone saw a spaceship and thought, "gee, that'd look good as a building!"
    And someone else said "yeah! Let's build it!"
    Does it have flashing lights?
    Does it spin around?
    Does it eventually take off never to be seen again?

  4. What can be seen so far bears an uncanny resemblance to a condo in the Flintstones.

  7. Hello Andrew:
    We do have to say that it does look rather strange and we find all that copper, well, somewhat brash.

  9. Victor, I was going to say something different until I searched 'Adriano Zumbo macaroon'. Nice work.

    Windsmoke, are you planning on getting lucky?

    River, it might have the flashing lights, but I doubt the rest.

    FC, a rock cave?

    Good question Anon who has not signed as Anon. The copper brightness is already dimming.

    Jah Teh, as long as your breasts bulge, RH will like you.

    Brash JayLa? I would call it downright brassy.

    Kath, Jetson's left over when back pack propulsion system failed to proceed.

  10. I have spent a good proportion of my weekend life around Acland St. I will also wait for the final revelation.

  13. Fen, if I had a life, it would probably not be interesting.

  14. It's an architect's wet dream - therefore it'll probably win awards!!!

  15. Red, I hope it gets the award before it turns green.

  17. Bloody hell, Peter just summed up my entire life in one sentence. Give the lad an Oscar.

  18. JahTeh, even ugly ducklings change to a beautiful swan, just like you! Mwah!

    The Oscar in gold please, I hate polishing.

  19. Peter, time will tell as to how it looks. I expect I will pass by it today, so I will take note.
