My wave of accolade breaks on the shores of Brunswick. As the "Fitzroy" flasher I am envious. Let's face it, Brunswick is cooler than Fitzroy. It's a few years behind in the gentrification. All the really good stuff is happening there - think Kaff-eine, Freshchop and the next to roll off the tongue has to be D_O_C_T_O_R. Occasionally she makes a house call to the ailing oldest suburb, checks our pulse and keeps our ticker going. She gives the Old Bird some hope and makes us say "yay" out loud. In stencil, paste and poetry, she really is IT.
