It's not relevant at the moment, since the org is closed (for renovations, someday), and the sign is broken with pieces falling off of it.
^^ The article is tl;dr, but it seems that people can't just stick a big advertising sign up on their building. They need permission, which Scientology isn't good at.
As I recall, the Org's sign frame said it was Out-of-Home Marketing Association (OMAC) for a while (or maybe OBS?), then they removed that. Towards the end, I wonder if the sign broke first or if they were told to shut it down until they went through proper channels? Otherwise, even with the org shut for "renovation", they could have kept the sign running and generating revenue.
I'm glad it's turned off. Or maybe they should just run it with screensavers, preferrably very colorful plasmatic ones. :3
Blue Screen of Death?
Oh ma gawd. HahaHAHAHA!!! Why don't they use the open source alternative?
That evening, the subway was out, so I was walking up Yonge St. As soon as I saw it, it was hard to walk and laugh at the same time.
Sorry, hit the wrong key at first, I was trying to reply.
I love complex plasmatic screensavers and would love to see more of them in public paces where people high out of their minds would stand transfixed like a moth before the flame...
Just needs a C:\ prompt. Preferably blinking.
I prefer a linux terminal prompt, it would make it more geeky.
I'd post pictures of the current state, but nothing has changed.
We could photoshop 'em to look even worse for halloween.
The Future that never will be:
Needs moar 100 year abandonment makeover.
Like his son.
Since the church is not well disposed to the gay population, why don't you add some lovely gay rainbow flags to the top?
Needs Anonymous protestors wearing Guy Fawkes masks carrying signs on the sidewalk in front of the morg.
FreakE420 to the courtesy phone!
More like it:
Needs a protester holding an Anonymous flag on the roof above the cross of Xenu.
Needs combo condos and upscale boutique shops replacing the gutted wreck of the building.
It looks like they've started the tear-down for renovations. The lights and false-ceilings have been removed across a lot of the building, and general junking of the place.
Are they finally getting serious after a year or did the city want to know what's going on?
Either that or someone broke in and pulled out all their copper wiring to sell for crack.
Ya, I noticed that for a while.
Is that what is on the still unknown Rob Ford video?
Nobody knows. It probably isn't even ford smoking crack, probably a joint through a bong instead.
<8 second pause> "I am not a copper wire addict."
Epic lulz photo from BlackRob's Epic Mirror Thread:
Could that have been written by a rentboy?
Definitely an old photo. The air-conditioners are gone, and they've blacked out the window boards.
If I didn't take that one, someone elses camera hates that building too.
Just so you know, the CoS handlers remarked that my coat (lower right) was junk. Dudes, it was a Pierre Cardin trench-coat. So, no.
This is a fine example of 20th century Theta-Casual Architecture (TCA-Tech). All that's really needed is Operating-Thetans in posh new Swing-Coats to meet the demand for the world's most expolosively expanding religion.
I reminisce: A lot of scams went down in that morg.
I passed by the org tonight. I would have taken more pictures, but seriously, nothing has changed in the last month.
Going through the motions with another pretend renovation?
Wow. What a dump.
Same old, same old. No visible change.
I bet if I'd put threads across the doorways, they'd still be in place a month later. No change.
Gives me some ideas. Lol.
same dump different day
WHY ARE THEY ALLOWED TO KEEP THE BUILDING THIS WAY AND FOR HOW LONG?
