Bloedel Conservatory

Bloedel Conservatory

Local politics is a ghastly, sordid business, discussion of which would not normally be permitted within the ivy-covered walls of this here blog. Unfortunately, the City of Vancouver is an even-more-than-usually wretched hive of scum and villainy. The City needs money to pay for its stupid, boring Olympics and it is determined to decimate the cultural life of your community in order to get what it needs.

Please sign this petition to save Bloedel Conservatory in Queen Elizabeth Park. Note that the conservatory is not a mere relic – it is, in fact, a living, breathing part of Vancouver’s finest neighbourhood.

And now, to get that bad taste out of your mouth, here’s a little punk rock.

Sonic Youth – “Youth Against Fascism”

Crass – “White Punks on Hope”

    I’m sure you weren’t brought up to use such language. Perfectly justifiable in this context however.
    Brendan Behan said he was often called this and, transmitted in an Irish brogue he came to regard it as a term of endearment.
    He was incensed however when an English policeman called him a ‘facquing bestud’.

    Is there any connection between this “Bloedel” and the Hotel of the same name from Perverted By Language?

    I would look it up, but I can’t be arsed.
