Image of the Week – 47 (Ugly House)

Is this the ugliest house in Indonesia?
(Click for large image, then click again for an enormous one!)

I’ve had this pic in my ‘pending’ folder for a long time. It was posted in a thread on the Indonesia Matters website, and I’ve waited for an opportune – erm – opportunity to use it.

There has recently been an awards ceremony held by the Shit London group.

Shit London began life as Facebook group for Londoners to post their pictures of strange and unusual things they spotted on their travels around the city.

These are photographs of the unintentional human comedy that surround us in the city. It’s the flotsam and jetsam of city life, the overlooked minutiae, the tragic, the grotesque and the basest of base. It’s the adapted posters, the dirty joke on the back of a van, the mispelt signs, the glory hole in the public loo, that weird shop down the end of your road and the knob graffiti strategically placed for maximum effect.

Grab your camera. Notice your city and laugh at it.

I’ve posted the picture above, taken in Surabaya, because I think there’s scope for a ‘Shit Indonesia‘ group site. As it is, we’ll have to make do with Shit Universe instead.

Note: I’m aware that some folk think that ‘shit’ is a rude word. It isn’t, so they/you shouldn’t be ‘shits’ (stupid people): read, listen and learn. It’s all in the context.

fr. Wikipedia
Shit is an English word that is usually considered vulgar and profane in Modern English, although Chaucer (1343-1400), the first poet to have been buried in Poet’s Corner of Westminster Abbey, used it in the Prologue to the Canterbury Tales.

As a noun it refers to fecal matter (excrement) and as a verb it means to defecate or defecate in; in the plural (the shits’) it means diarrhea. Shite is also a common variant in British English and Irish English.

As a slang term, it has many meanings, including: nonsense, foolishness, something of little value or quality, trivial and usually boastful or inaccurate talk, or a contemptible person. It may also be used as an expression of annoyance, surprise, or anger, and has other usages as well.

The emboldened words above are the intended meaning in this post.

    For me there's thousands of these in RI, this one is about a 5 on a 100 scale. Some similar in the green zones in Bali are mind blowing/addling.
    Maybe Jakartass Towers kills it. Not for its banality, but for its endless repetition without regard or consideration of the surrounding environment.

    I thought this was the Gubenurs house.If not his then his secretary`s.

    I think the house in the picture owns by Alim Markus, the owner of Maspion Group. The house located in jalan Dharma Husada Indah Timur, Surabaya.
