A fluff piece about the unnecessary 21 million dollar eyesore spanning Cedar appeared in the Star Tribune and was filled with some of the typical choice quotes that could only come from politicians happily throwing other people’s money into the wind. Honestly, I was literally gagging as I read what was said but figured it would be fun to share some of the comments here so you too could throw up a little in your mouth, chew, and swallow to save yourself some money being stolen out of your pockets to fund what should have been half the price and 100% less “artsy”.
Apple Valley Mayor Mary Hamann-Roland said the striking glass, stone and steel building has piqued the curiosity of residents.
“A lot of people have said to me, ‘Wow, that is a really, really cool looking transit center,'” she said. “The roofline follows the terrain. It’s art. It’s architecture reflecting the natural environment.”
1. Someone needs to explain to that insanely dumb bitch that the only thing that has people’s attention piqued is the fact that this glass enclosed building should have been built for half the price and without all the expensive “art”. It’s a fucking transit station, not an art center and it was built with OUR money. People are going to fucking park there and take a bus elsewhere. It’s going to stink like a parking garage, might as well look like one too. Honestly Mary, you fucking doofus, I don’t want people wasting my money, I want them saving it.
2. The roofline follows the terrain? What terrain Mary? We live in Minnesota and Apple Valley at that! There is no fucking terrain. The entire town was a fucking flat farm field for as far as the fucking eye can see. Stop talking out of your fucking ass, it just makes you look more insane than you are.
3. Oh dearest Mary please explain exactly what you meant by “it’s architecture reflecting the natural environment,” because I really want to know if you meant the glass reflecting back the insanely ridiculous traffic, neon open signs and the poorly plowed streets or if you were trying to make the building seem cooler than the harsh reality that you raised taxes this year and we haven’t seen fucking shit for it. Seriously, I want you to use that little box down below and share your thoughts because, as of right now, you just look dumb–maybe you could change that perception by manning up and clarifying your ridiculous comment.
Then there is a little bit right at the end of the article which is just classic. While Mayor Mary was lucky enough not to be quoted saying anything about Flounders Circle, Apple Valley Community Development Director Bruce Nordquist didn’t make out so well. He was happy to note that they are now expecting to wait for development to happen–something which he said might take up to 20 years. Hmm, just a few years ago you were all fucking gung ho over that entire nuclear wasteland…now you realize it was premature and we’re all happy to stare at barren plots and empty parking spaces? Way to go Bruce.
So what do you think about our $21 million art project? Do you agree that it follows the terrain or that it reflects the natural environment? Maybe you think Mayor Mary and Bruce Nordquist are just as fucking crazy now as they ever were and need to get a sharp slap upside their fucking heads in an attempt to knock some sense into them? Whatever you have to say go ahead and comment on as I’d love to hear your thoughts.
