Weston super Mare...
or should that be Weston super (night) Mare (?)...
and the blogger who wrote this post
'Dismaland' - Dazed and Bemused -
The New Banksy Exhibition is more than meets the eye.
lives in the town.
"Banksy chose the dilapidated old swimming pool (lido) on the seafront, now mostly filled with seagull droppings and empty bags of chips, precisely because it reminded him of his childhood. The renowned Bristolian, spent many summers splashing around the pool, according to his own recollection...
Banksy said: “I loved the Tropicana as a kid, so getting to throw these doors open again is a real honour."

Dismaland is a collaboration of over fifty artists such as Banksy, Jimmy Cauty, Jenny Holzer and Damien Hurst.
Now the same weekend Dismaland opens in one seaside town in England a plane crashes in another seaside town killing onlookers watching the airshow from the road.

Funny, I just watched the movie Shrek for the first time the other day and I couldn't help thinking how much Dismaland was like a run down fascist theme park similar to what we see in the movie Shrek.

Well, from the title of my blog you should have guessed that I'm a wheel watcher. :-)
Marie told me in a comment to one of my posts that,
"In Dismaland, I've recorded it, but can't post it, they continually play Mr Sandman, the Back to the Future version, amongst other things, on loud speakers, in a surreal atmosphere it freaked me out a bit as I walked around the old pool I remembered visiting as a kid in that same place! "
The Clockwork Orange Effect?
and immediately after seeing this photo I saw a shot of the cameraman who was gunned down by a dis(malland?)gruntled co-worker and he was also wearing an orange vest very similar to the Dismaland worker.
