Biff Weissglut

Many thanks all for the comments to the last entry. Special thanks T Wrecks!

Empty Lots. Really.

The reason for the empty lots is the aerial bombardment during the last big war. Many houses had to be demolished after. These Lots remain unused.

Its true. Flak Towers (anti aircraft) were built. Heres one.

From other angles.

The tower is now the Museum of Natural History. More empty lots visible here too.

This space was turned into a wonderful plaza.

bezirk4_zpsc6ab3112.jpg

No buildings here, either.

Few buildings on this station adjacent lot.

Football in the Biff Region

The Greater Biff Region is a City-State with its own football league. Here are some of the stadiums of top league clubs. The top league is called "Top League".

Biffe le Bourg City FC.

The Information must flow to the people.

In this first image, a oversize flyer for a Catholik youth gathering has been crossed by socialist artwork. This act of vandalism in his city is nothing Mayor Biff

Weissglut is proud of, but nothing he is ashamed of either.

"Vote Biff - your vote counts" reads this masterpiece of propaganda art.

A recent street poll has shown public sentiment to be that "our votes don't count cause Biff counts the votes, and that's what counts". Biff has these advertisements made still.

wallpaintingvote_zps0e519b23.png

Gambling is a monopoly of the local officials. "Gamling keeps the people gambling" Biff was quoted, who has a dog in the race.

Young ones love this mural but Biff just doesn't get it.

wallpaintinggirl_zpsa73bba88.png

This is a school of architecture. Biff gives all public construction contracts to these people.

Mayor Weissglut imports this rum from Venezuela. There is no de jure ban on competing brands, but you know how it is.

A local brewery.

Mayor Weissglut steams.

Heres how the head of executive (and the other branches) likes to see his (the public's) city:

scgr0_zpscab2b6e9.png

Clean, reasonably organised. The type of place you would want to get up at six in the morning to go to work at.

But local vandals aim to disrupt this plan. They are bombing street corners all city.

See for yourselves:

scgr4_zpsf8bd60b9.png

Even this backyard.

scgr1_zpsb1cd383e.png

Without words.

scgr3_zps9414f4e9.png

Not even the inner city is safe, if one correlates lack of safety to the amount of vandalism.

scgr2_zps6ad0c30a.png

This flagship piece on a El-train adjecent building apparently boosts "fame" amongst rival vandals and therefore must be cleaned as soon as funds

are earmarked.

Fish and chips franchises lack common decency.

"Elaine's Fish and Chips Co" is all over the city, much to the chagrin of inhabitants of Biffe le Bourg. Many of these fast-food "restaurants" occupy

central locations. They clearly interfere with the otherwise so homogeneous cityscape, a non representative study surveying forty citizens has

shown the sentiment to be. Many want the franchises gone.

But judge for yourself.

scfc1_zpsac394fc8.png

Hungry sportsmen could get carbohydrates here.

scfc3_zpsa01f7746.png

Try to find the restaurant here!

scfc2_zps4f985cef.png

Is this really where we want tourists to eat?

scfc4_zps8ae6ef42.png

The underprivileged must not be constantly tempted by the smell.

scfc5_zps880ab65d.png

Dito.

scfc8_zps47fd6fa4.png

How in the world were they given a building lease here? Clearly the lot is a type of recreational zone.

The S9 Train to Bouteille de Biffe.

Yes, the S9 connects Biff le Bourg, the City-States' Capital, with Bouteille de Biffe. Uncounted workers flok into Biff le Bourg Main Station every day to

catch the very S9. Some arrive by bicycle, some with the El-train (see image below). Some come by foot. How many croissants will they be able to

eat on the trip to Bouteille de Biffes industrial zones?

On the top right corner, a S9 pulls out of the station. These are double decker trains with strict rules governing smoking, littering, graffiti and eating;

none are allowed.

scs91_zps97d28447.png

The first croissant should be half way eaten by the time the S9 passes the tracks and "Peu d'Chance Hospital".

scs92_zpsb92997be.png

Children learn French, German and English in the local schools.

scs94_zpsf7ef6e64.png

Consciencious members of the work-force don't arrive hungry. The second croissant should be eaten by the time the S9 passes

"Wicked Widow's Cathedrale".

scs93_zps30ea79ba.png

Local freethinkers have been living under this bridge since 1968. Don't throw them a piece of your third croissant unless it's wholegrain.

scs96_zps3d6767e5.png

Workers usually finish their third croissant by the time the S9 stops at Bouteille de Biffe's "Hafenkopf Station".

scs97_zpscff61bbf.png

Trash must be picked up now for our S9 arrives in the industrial quarters of Bouteille de Biffe.
