North Van is a
city of a different world. So close to the Mayhem
"Vancouver" and yet so distantly dangled
from two severely-crippled bridges, that ... well ...
it's a "Long-Distance State
The graffiti on the North Shore is hidden in large
clumps of Parsley, to the left of the Artichokes. It's
a little harder to find, but once you get it, you win
the whole kazoo.
Aside from the Festive Skate
Parks and famous Train Yards -
which brings us endless inspiration in the form of rust
two main Graffiti depots on the side of the Mountain. The
famous "Mosquite Creek" and the infamous "Esplanade" (which
is now HISTORY DEAR BROTHER, because the Condo Kangaroos
have taken over our fragrant patch of clover).
But, alas dear laddies and lasoo's: let's not forget
the GRIFFIN GULCH. This sweet little backwater
Suburban Daycare Center has some Mean Hospital Green
payment on the Riverbed Walls. Just a block up
from the Skateboard Rink.
Despite its Lofty Evergreensand quaint little villages,
North Van has little to offer if you're Gay, Black,
Artistic or French Canadian. If you're making
babies, buying SUV's or stealing lawn ornaments, it's
the Place To Be, the Raison D'etre.
Without further adieu, I bid you farewell and submit
your hungry eyes to MOSQUITE
CREEK and the ENDLESS
it's later than you think.
enough, the City of North Van goes down under the overpass
and RE-PAINTS the bridge footings and under-arms of the
bridge abuttments - as if anyone gives a shit how the
Underside of the Bridge looks! This is Amazing! Do
you really want your tax dollars going into this kind
of pyschotic mis-management of Public Funds? If
no, SAY NO! Vote Elko Kroon For Counsellor!!
Also the Memorials for the two young men who fell between
the cracks of the bridge are still there, still with
fresh flowers and still with lighted candles. Thanks
to all who respect and honor the tragic loss that occurred
to the families of these victims.
