I need your help!Summary: Vote for "Eye of the Taniwha Whataitai" by following the link below.
The Wellington International Airport has been for some time DETERMINED to put a great big "something" on the hill at Miramar, (Miramar being where Peter Jackson and Weta Workshop/Digital do most of their film work.) Because the airport lacks the slightest bit of taste they thought it would be absolutely hilarious to blatantly rip-off the Hollywood sign with a cringe-worthy "Wellywood". Everyone hated it.
REALLY hated it.
So they folded but they're still determined to put something up there, they just opened it up to a few more talented people. They chose three finalists, one their own "Wellywood" because they're sore losers, two just a simple "Wellington" with a few of the letters blown away, (Wellington is windy as fuck,) and three, A BIG FUCKING SCARY EYE!
Voting closes tomorrow, I have no idea what's winning but I'm damn sure that if anything has to go up on that hill A BIG FUCKING SCARY EYE is going to be it. It even moves around in the wind! Fuck yeah!
So I'm calling on you to tilt the vote in favour of A BIG FUCKING SCARY EYE, (actually titled 'Eye of the Taniwha Whataitai' to go with some Maori legend about how Wellington came to be but A BIG FUCKING SCARY EYE is a better title I think,) to ensure we don't get something stupid or limp-dick up there.
Then, when you come here to visit me you can look up with pride at A BIG FUCKING SCARY EYE and know that you put it there! Chur!
