    Wellywood

    What? AndyRage never posts to the gallery!

    There's a vague proposal going around to erect a 'Wellywood' sign in the hills in Wellington. This is in recognition of the amount of special effects work being done in New Zealand for major films - Lord of the Rings, Avatar, and the like.

    In my opinion the idea is a bit tacky. And as is so often the way with projects like this it will be created in an air of enthusiasm which will quickly evaporate. Funding for maintenance will vanish. The sign will be vandalized and fall into disrepair and will quickly become (more of) a blot on the landscape.

    So with a bit of 'Ragin', I present the future...

    Andy - This is funny. For Many Many years, I lived adjascent to the Hollywood sign, and saw it go from almost demolished to restored. Funding and vandalism were always a problem. It wasn't until Hollywood itself turned itself into a "Theme Park" that money got abundant again. A bit of trivia - Hollywood isn't incorporated. It is just a Neighborhood in Greater Los angeles.

    What? The Vandals have invaded New Zealand? Can the Visigoths be far behind?
