Despite the current cringing of Kiwis with such low self esteem that they do not have the resilience to embrace whimsical parody I predict that one day, if ever built , the Wellywood sign will become a well loved icon of Wellington.
People who feel the need to copy an iconic sign from another city, have low self esteem. See how pointless your argument is?
Also just listing your name next to some well-known people is not an argument. And as it happens Peter Jackson has had his arm severely twisted on this and his first position was that the sign is a bad idea.
Well yesterday when I was having lunch with Tim Blair and Paul Reeves we talked about this and it was actually Bob Jones who stopped by and said it seems like low self esteeme to me. Of course Billy Conolly and Tina Fey who were at the next table aggreed.
Someone send PJ a crowbar so he can get fisiani out of his ass.
I have it on good authority that company Head Offices are now wishing to return to Wellywood because of the appaling change in the Jafas weather patterns. Of course Wellywoods weather has changed as well – for the better.
They’ve destroyed the floral “Wellington” sign? 😯 Next you’ll be telling me some “progressive” council has bulldozed the floral clock in Napier!!
I like this idea of towns having signs that try to summarise their ethos but are in no way original. I’d be prepared, for instance, to chip in for a bloody great sign outside Wanganui that said “Abandon hope, all ye who enter”. 😀
There seems to be a lot of claims to Wellington being the capital of this, the capital of that, the best at this, the best at that – which most could be shot down with some facts. One thing is for sure though you sure are the capital at talking yourselves up.
