    Ilkley Illiterature Festival!

    Post  deadagaindave on Sat Oct 29, 2011 5:02 am

    It is unfortunate in every possible way, that the ILKLEY ILLITERATURE FESTIVAL goons, sought to bolster and enshrine their disgusting, nature despoiling, savagery; by making much of the fact that they are involving ‘young people’ in their brazen, barbaric, and very silly Stanza Stones, scheme.
    They seek to suggest that in the process of teaching the young, that the natural world is just something to carve up at will, that they are providing something of educational value that promotes literary endeavour in developing minds. A clutch of cobbled together young writers groups, all over West Yorkshire, have been manufactured and engaged to give credibility to the vandalistic, ill considered, vulgar destruction of the natural landscape that they intend.
    Nothing demonstrates just how educationally valueless and inept this whole fiasco is, than the leaflet to be distributed in red velvet boxes, to the groups of youngsters they are targeting.
    Entitled, “ PENINE WATERSHED” the leaflet is case study in shabby writing, and abysmal literature. Of an order that many would imagine an anathema to a ‘Literature’ festival, that purports to promote literary erudition among the young. Not only have they spelled Pennine, wrong on the cover, the interior of the leaflet is so awfully constructed, that a local newspaper is running a competition, inviting readers to find the wealth of grammatical errors and spelling mistakes that it contains.
    How tragic that the web page that exposed this catastrophe was online for over four months, from the 19th of May2011 to the 28th of October 2011.
    How sadly misrepresentative, that the web page boldly displayed the logos of the Esmee Fairburn Foundation, the ‘imove’ Cultural Olympiad, the Department for Food and Rural Affairs, the Arts Council England and Bradford Metropolitan Council, besmirching these worthy bodies by associating them with the idiocy that they so palpably portray.
    How distressing that the young minds of the region; yearning for literary guidance, are so recklessly abused and betrayed, by having this diabolical drivel delivered to them in red velvet boxes!
    All in the cause of justifying the needless and offensive mutilation of our diminishing natural countryside.
    Is there to be no end to the philistine excesses of these imposing, illiterate and arrogant people?

    The poor little illiterate puppies have taken the whopping great spelling mistake images off the site! Good job we saved 'em!



    Astonishingly, some of these halfwits who can't spell are involved in a Literature Festival!?! WTF hope is there for the kids these idiots are reckoning they're teaching if they make such blatant balls-up as this??? Morons...

    Now be fair Paulus!
    At least the red velvet boxes that the illiterate garbage was sent to the children in, is an impressive and thoughtful touch.
    Rather epitomising the ILF, thing when you think about it?
    A load of old bollocks and half witted shit, tarted up as something smart!

    Strangely, nothing on Mr Price's blog about his wonderful award.

    "Thickens" Mikki? You need lessons in tense usage. I'd better send you a red box. Razz

    This is nothing short of astonishing. No Just to re-emphasize: these people got the "Leeds College of Art 2011 Print Prize" for this box & several folders within in it, all labelled 'Penine Prospects'. Who judged this illiterate crap?

    Oh sorry!! We need some proper Yorkshire in there. The plot fickens... Very Happy

    Right! Back to Ilkley's 'Illiterature Festival'The Director's Husband, is David Collins. He is Visual Communication tutor at Leeds College of Art and design. There are referrences to him throughout the Paul Price blog and also a link to David Collin's graffiti blog, where he openly describes his vandalism as a form of art.

    So, they are trying to stop people knowing what they're doing upon the moor - that's a sure sign of guilt one thinks.
