Love your posts Entropy.

Haven't figured out what the secret article is about, yet, but I suspect the David in the peak is David Marr, whose review of Mona was the only one I loved.

The negative reviews about Mona on google are also quite a hoot.

I suspect most of those reviews could be directly related to my Art for beginners book he "borrowed" in Hadley's Hotel back in 87. Then again maybe he's up to the intermediate volume by now. Oh and David If your reading this.... two deep breaths and put down that copy of Roget's.

I do not usually enter into the editorial arena - but I cannot stop myself wondering why the domain of this forum is so into the denigration of a person who is pretty much the kind of person I would like to sit down with to discuss betting.  I have zero interest in art, particularly modern art.  That said the one betting person I would like to sit down with for a coffee or beer is DW.

I read his book last week - the betting chapters were interesting, as were the youtube clips.  I guess his comment about his betting not being a business was at the least - "economical with the truth".

As a person who has bet professionally since 2000 I cannot but agree with DW how the business we are in is morally bankrupt - I add zero value to the community so through my endeavours I actively work in the community to give something back.

This forum is called racing talk - lets talk racing - if DH is a philanthropist more power to him.

Me - I would rather have access to his doodling book for the past 10 years than have random poppy toppers knocking the guy.

As I said, don't know the guy - not sure if you knockers have a personal reason for the fury.

What the hell is wrong with you!

When the AFR did its Walkley Award expose on the group it looked almost like plagiarism of my posts here.

But my stuff was essentially public or common knowledge.

Imagine the stories that would come out were insiders or outsiders prepared to blab.

They and their 300 quants can't win in a level playing field.

Zeljko may win at Blackjack if some idiot lets him play.

They only win by Kickback scams and other unfair means like invisible bets.

And you are losing lots because of them.

It says a lot about your mathematical prowess that you can't figure that out.

I spent years drinking coffee and cider with this hero of yours bascoe. I can think of others who would be better conversational value, regardless
jfc has a valid point, if details of their various methods of operation didn't become public knowledge it would effect your bottom line even further than it does now.

Oh dear!

A bone of baloney.

What a tedious effort to avoid alluding to the premise of Walsh's existence:

Kickbacks!

Money can't be destroyed?

Try shoving wads of it down a Cloaca machine.

Plenty of published controversy about this (now sanitised) effort.

Knock yourself out and judge for yourself.

Death threats for our porn philanthropist?

Think I'm having a Johnny Depp moment.

Held at a secret location. Surely nowhere near Martin Bryant's performance piece?

IT is Mona 2.0 and it is spectacular.
Mona founder David Walsh has unveiled his vision for the next phase of growth for the world-renowned museum that would be spearheaded by a 63m hotel he said could a “beacon for Hobart”.
During a rare speech, at the Tourism Council of Tasmania’s industry luncheon at Mona, Mr Walsh announced plans for:
A $300 million five-star, 63m high and 172-room hotel — to be called HOMO (Hotel at Mona) — on the museum’s Berriedale site, to be completed in January, 2022.
TAKING the summer Mona Foma festival to Launceston in 2019, with at least one event planned in the North during next year’s event.
A LUXURY accommodation resort at Marion Bay in the state’s South-East.
Mr Walsh said plans already announced for the Berriedale Caravan Park development — now named HOBO — that have been held up because of the nearby sewage treatment plant and for a high roller casino called Monaco are still on the horizon.
Other new developments and installations planned for Mona include a gallery, two playgrounds, Rjoyi Ikeda’s famed tower of light becoming a permanent installation on site, a homage to Dante’s Divine Comedy where heaven, hell and purgatory will be recreated, a large hydraulic installation in the River Derwent where people can almost walk on water and the ability for people to walk around a storage facility for the museum’s artwork.
But it is the new hotel design that is set to be the main project in the near future. A number of designs were scrapped because views of the River Derwent could not be guaranteed.
The design is based on the famous Golden Gate bridge in San Francisco — but upside down — allowing it to be suspended over the Derwent so ferries can drop off and pick up passengers. Mr Walsh said the plan would fit in perfectly with the Mona site.
“It’s our version of the Golden Gate bridge, a beacon for Hobart,” he said.
“Those arched structures are the Golden Gate bridge upside down, it’s a suspension bridge upside down.
“The idea is that we can support it from above and get everything on site.”
The hotel will also contain an indoor theatre/concert hall seating 1075 people, a function and events centre for about 1000 people, a spa and a three-storey library containing Mr Walsh’s large collection of rare books and manuscripts he said could have the same impact as the museum.
“I’ve been collecting books longer than art,” he said.
But it was the ability to have a theatre under the hotel that Walsh said was the ingenious of the HOMO design.
“You can’t usually build a theatre in a building because when it shakes the building shakes,” he said.
“But in this design because they are hanging from the top, the top seven floors are disconnected from the bottom three ones so they won’t shake when the theatre does.
“It’s the best idea anyone has ever had ... and it wasn’t me.”
Walsh and his Mona team hope to have HOMO opened by January 21, 2022 — the 11th anniversary since he opened the museum. Construction would create about 300 jobs.
Because work would start in 2019, a new home would be needed for the musuem’s onsite summer festival Mona Foma. Mr Walsh said Mona had made a proposal to the State Government to move the festival to Launceston.
“It would have been easy for Mofo to run a formula, it would have been easy for Mona to run a formula,” he said.
“We have been holding Mofo out here [at Berridale] for the last couple of years with a lot of success but the space won’t be available with the construction of the hotel.
“So our idea is to change, to up-end Mofo by moving it to Launceston.
“We hope that the thousands of people who come to Hobart come to Launceston.”
Mona co-chief executive Mark Wilsdon said if the Government provided adequate support, the move north could happen soon.
“If things go to plan we will do a pop-up event, a free significant event up in Launceston next year while still running the festival down here,” he said.
“And following that, depending on the funding deed we are able to secure, we will move the festival holus-bolus to Launceston.”
As well as spreading its wings north, Mona could also increase its footprint to the east with a proposed high-end 17-room resort at Marion Bay on land owned by Mr Walsh.
Tourism Industry of Tasmania chair Daniel Leesong said it was massive for the sector that Mona was taking festivals and developments to other locations.
“What we have seen is another transformative project by Mona,” Mr Leesong said.
“What this not only has the potential to do is put Tasmania on the map but also diversify some of the traffic to the northern part of the state through Mofo – this is fantastic for the industry and really welcomed.
“How fantastic is it that you can have Mona who have come out of nowhere in the past six to eight years really spread its wings across the state. It’s great news for regional Tasmania as well as Hobart as a city.”
Premier Will Hodgman said the Government would discuss the proposal with Mr Walsh.
“I think whatever comes out via Mona and David Walsh is always worth listening to,” Mr Hodgman said.
“There’s no doubt that the Mona effect has been significant for the state right across the state and as a government we would certainly look forward to looking at what plans they have to expand.”
Labor leader Rebecca White said the new vision was “enormously exciting”.

Why a bull when your average supertab punter in effigy would be so more apt.
I suspect the above article could be a direct correlation to the diminishing pilgrims heading north of creek rd.
My advice: why go south of Heide!, similar entrance just differing contents.
The quote “I think whatever comes out via Mona and David Walsh is always worth listening to,” is surprising considering this latest insightful gem from the south's nouveau cultural huckster.

"I didn’t build Mona to serve the sort of creepy f...s that go to Auschwitz"

MONA's Walsh backs anti-pokies cause, as campaign ramps up ahead of 2018 election

By Natalie Whiting 

Updated 53 minutes ago


The Tasmanian anti-pokies movement has been bolstered by the backing of MONA's David Walsh, with a campaigner warning if political parties ignore public sentiment on the issue "perhaps the parliamentary system needs to be disrupted".

The impending expiry of Federal Group's monopoly deed over poker machines in the state has sparked debate about the issue ahead of the 2018 state poll.

Mr Walsh, who bankrolled his Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) with the proceeds from gambling, has supported the anti-poker machine group Rein in the Pokies, which has partnered with interstate opponents to campaign against the machines, flagging the possibility of backing independents or running candidates.

"David is a very wealthy man, as we all know, and he has supported us adequately," Pat Caplice from Rein In The Pokies said.

"It costs money to take out full-page ads in papers, it costs money to put ads onto TV.

"The logistics of that has been principally by me, the financial support has of course come from outside, but I'd reiterate again that it hasn't only been from one person, it's been from a range of people."

Mr Walsh would not say how much he has contributed to the anti-pokies cause, but he has ruled out donating to political parties.

A vehement opponent to gaming machines, Mr Walsh told ABC's 7.30 in 2015 "pokies work in a different way to other gambling".

Mr Walsh said companies "design poker machines in a way that maximises the psychological reinforcement".

"It's not about the thrill of winning, its about being in the zone, having the world closed out to you," he said at the time.

That year, Mr Walsh lashed out at the Farrells, the family who own Federal Group, for attempting to use him to extend its poker machine monopoly indefinitely.

In 2017, MONA unveiled plans for expansion of it Berriedale complex to include a luxury hotel and high-rollers casino that would be off-limits to Tasmanians and poker machine free.

Mr Caplice said Mr Walsh had "brought a new paradigm to Tasmania" and the major parties "should be, if not concerned, at least be very aware of his concern".

 How the Farrell family's Federal Group gained an exclusive licence to operate all of Tasmania's poker machines - for free.

"David's support is mostly the moral support that he's given and quite frankly my personal friendship with David has got me through a lot of doors," he said.

"It's that indirect influence that David has been most helpful with."

Mr Caplice said the Pokies Out Tasmania group may look to support anti-pokies independents or minor parties, or run candidates in the 2018 Tasmanian election, but is waiting to see what position Labor take on poker machines before planning its next move.

"If Labor comes on board and gives an anti-pokies option to the electorate, we'll continue solely as an anti-pokies group," Mr Caplice said.

"But if Labor don't come on board then it becomes a larger question than pokies, it becomes a question of democracy.

"If 80 per cent of the population want great changes to the landscape of poker machines and the next government, either Labor or Liberal, won't offer that to the electorate, then perhaps the parliamentary system would need to be disrupted," Mr Caplice said.

David who is part of a group that takes down every over odds keno jackpot Federal has on offer now supports a pokies ban whilst making no secret of wanting a gaming license in direct competition with Federal.

Only in Tasmania.

Look by all means grant the man a license with just one caveat, please don't have him write for the Mercury again.
His last attempt resides in the Tasmanian collective consciousness alongside the 75 bridge disaster, we all know it happened, just.. best forgotten.

I have no idea how the Tasmanian election is leaning.

But I'm taking the liberty of translating the prose of this remarkably honoured dipshit.



Keno is as lethal a gambling option I've seen.

Mainly because Walsh and his kickbacking ilk stitch it up in spades.

Most club-going low-earning people realise this and play poker machines as a far cheaper entertainment alternative.

What Walsh is pushing for is to ban pokies at Keno Venues.

So the only option mugs have is to switch to Keno and get shafted.

But Walsh will benefit from this extra Keno turnover.

That he can direct the funds to his porn museum, along with his Stilettos of the South venture.

OUTSPOKEN MONA owner DAVID WALSH has backed Melbourne’s plan to build a modern art gallery.

His support follows a boast by Victorian Premier DANIEL ANDREWS that the National Gallery Of Victoria Contemporary — a major arts revamp worth up to $1 billion — would be the “biggest and best” in Australia.

Asked if Victoria was showing off, Walsh said: “I don’t think they’re grandstanding; they’re building it.

“If I could be responsible in some small way for a bigger engagements in the arts, a million or more visitors in Victoria, that can’t be a bad thing, can it? It’s bloody great.”

Walsh owns Hobart’s world-famous Museum of Old and New Art, which opened a new exhibition, ZERO, at the weekend. “Everybody’s building modern art galleries . It’s the way it is,” Walsh said. “States building art galleries is not the same as individuals building art galleries, because individuals are showing off.

“(MONA), at the moment, is not profitable, but it is not an act of philanthropy,” he said.

“If I could build this thing, entertain a few hundred thousand people a year, (do) something for the local economy … that would be great.

“But what would be a damn sight greater would be to have richer, more avaricious folks than me, saying: ‘Ooh, he did that with his money, (he) had a bit of a reputation, but he also made some bucks.

“Then these f---ing things would be bought all over the world.”

Mona founder David Walsh says Dark Mofo would die, if he caves into critics

DARK Mofo could “become tame” and “die in three years” if curators cave in to the concerns of critics, Mona owner David Walsh says.
In a week when the Hobart City Council voted to increase funding for its summer Taste Festival by $400,000, and the State Government committed a total of $5.25 million to Dark Mofo’s sister event Mona Foma over the next three years, Hobart Lord Mayor Ron Christie flagged cutting council funding to Dark Mofo’s Winter Feast.
With the council’s annual $258,000 sponsorship agreement ending this year and up for review, Ald Christie told the Mercury “the line has been crossed, based on the feedback I’m getting” about Dark Mofo, days after the council received an online petition — started by the Australian Christian Lobby in Brisbane — calling for the festival’s controversial glowing inverted crosses to be removed.
Ald Christie suggested that funding could be cut because of complaints, including about inverted crosses.
Mr Walsh said Dark Mofo was not a family festival.
“We are a festival which resists the centre, but that certainly doesn’t preclude kids,’’ he said.
“That’s our audience and HCC funding can’t be predicated on curatorial direction. If we acquiesce to curatorial influence and become tame, the festival will die in three years, so the money will be irrelevant.
Premier Will Hodgman rejected suggestions the festival had gone too far and said he hoped there would be no threat to its funding.
“These events are very much a part of the landscape that is the most exciting, vibrant industry sector in the country … they are also important for the community to enjoy our events as well as bringing in so many visitors,’’ Mr Hodgman said.
“I’m hopeful that the council, if they make an ultimate decision on this matter, would land on the side that supports the growth and progress of Tasmania’s arts and cultural sector in supporting this event.”
Several Hobart aldermen said Ald Christie’s views did not represent those of the whole council.
Ald Marti Zucco said the mayor should get all facts before speaking on behalf of the other 10 aldermen.
“If the HCC pulls its funding it will be to the detriment to the non-controversial aspect of the overall event,” Ald Zucco said. “This is the second time in two months that this unelected Lord Mayor has spoken out without consulting with the decision-makers of the city first.
“What my personal views are on the controversial component is a personal view but it should not take away the amazing component of the City of Hobart Winter Feast.”
Commenting on the Mercury website, Ald Philip Cocker said the mayor’s comments were “seriously wrong and not representative of the council”.
“This event has done wonders for activating Hobart and should be supported,” he said.
