"Fifteen minutes south" (golfing extra)

Lake Shore - Golf

Urban Splash have ratcheted up the marketing campaign for their Lake Shore development in Hartcliffe a notch.

The website for the new development went live this week and in an intriguing twist they now seem to be promoting Hartcliffe as a top golfing destination!

What are they proposing? That the fucking yuppies tee off down Hartcliffe Way?

The website has also got a rather neat draw-your-own Lake Shore poster feature or ‘Pop Art Machine’ that comrade Evelyn may put to good use (see above).

    Try the text only version of the site to get Urban Splash’s inaccurate marketing guff in all its full inanity. It was obviously written by someone with no love of either veracity or English grammar. For instance, it describes the building during its use as Imperial’s headquarters as: ‘A utopia for workers and bosses alike ‘ . Bollocks. It was cold in the winter and sweltering in the summer. Moreover, every time the wind got up you could see those big plate glass windows wobble and bow inwards.

    Could South American marching powder been employed in the drafting of this drivel? I think we should be told.

    Woodsy, the marketing guff clearly says:

    Not gimmicks. Not buzzwords. Just progress.

    They wouldn’t just make it up would they?

    Marketing and advertising are not referred to as the ‘bullshit industries’ for nothing. 🙂

    Bristol is a city full of history, built on trade, and engineering and architecture but at the same time, utterly modern.

    Just don’t mention slavery… 😮

    A regenerated Harbour that’s buzzing with new life in beautiful old warehouses, pop art pastel terraces and modernist shopping centres.

    ‘Modernist shopping centres’? Clutching at straws here!

    Bristol is a city bubbling with culture – amazing music, a Royal Academy of Art, Banksy balloon festivals. And it’s stuffed with food and drink, from fancy cocktails to perfect pubs, from Hotel du Vin to the Mud Dock. This city fills you up.

    I’m not sure we can yet pin the balloon fiesta on Banksy…

    And Bristol is the greenest city in the country.

    Possibly not once the yuppocracy descends on south Bristol, with its Chelsea tractors and its executive saloons and its weekend cabriolets, as is the cash-given right of any self-respecting, Ethical Consumer-subscribing, ecological lip service-paying, high earning, self-preserving, mammonomaniac ‘work hard, play hard’ idiot…

    The city is moving South, and this is the most exciting part of Bristol. New restaurants, places to drink, food to buy from around the world, a new hospital, new schools. It’s suddenly a place you can live. Lake Shore is the next step, part of a new era for the other side of the tracks. Be part of it.

    “Suddenly a place you can live” – it’s not even subtle, is it? 😀
