Thinkin aboot wee tour of all yon saunas that are still open aye, the good, the bad, the ugly, the gay, no, no the gay ones like aye, might include in upcoming album. Anyhoos picked up a noon paper to see whos still aboot and whats open and whats not. Only 6 adverts. London Street Sauna, New Town, Regency must be new name for yon dump that was Paradise and they even coloured the advert same as the auld Paradise knocking shop, Scorpio, Blair Street Sauna and Dunedin at 168 Dundas new name of Dundas aye? All yon new names and ‘owners’ aye? entertaining watching the owners flapping and pushing yon pawns around the chessboard no aye in effort to avoid the clink aye? No advert from Ambassador or Carols so maybes they don’t advertise cos they still answered yon phones when called. I checked last time there was only two adverts so maybe yons a sign of growin confidence of sauna owners or yons a last gasp at grabbin all the teats an milkin the cash coo for all its worth before the inevitable doom aye.
Advert colours are a funny choice aye? LSS the green knocking shop has glowing yellow advert and makes me think o shitty Paradise at Roseburn with its peelin yellow paintjob from the 1980s. OTOH BSS is green and made me imagine haein a wee trip to LSS. They’ve got no just green mind aye but an exact match to yon faded green of LSS a few years back before Gary had it freshened up. Looked at BSS advert and I think of LSS. I look at LSS and think of Paradise. Then New Town. They have got faded blue and white which makes me think of BSS or Carols on ER. Regency yon just makes me think Paradise which makes me very ill yon quick aye. Dunedins pink and yon means its maybe a new gay parade palace an did see a bloke in a gorilla suit outside it on Brandon Terrace last weekend when had motor parked outside yon old PO building so maybe aye, maybe?
And Scorpios? Yon just reminds me of those two brothers and that’s nuff fur me.
And all I did the day was buy yon noon paper and now have all yon to leave you with aye. Fans and even yon secret fans alike enjoy my thoughts aye. Respect.
