Notre Dame burned. We were all heartbroken. You didn't have to be a person of faith. You just had to be able to appreciate art and beauty.
A structure that was vast and wonderful, crafted with love and by hands of craftsmen. Notre Dame is a triumph.
When looking upon what was left after the fire, I actually held out some hope. Much of the stonework survived. The walls, the supports.
Sure, there was a lot to be repaired but it seemed (to put it simply) Notre Dame had a roof and spire problem. Many of the artifacts had been saved and the bones of the cathedral were in good shape.
They could rebuild. That's all... rebuild. Not redesign. Rebuild.
Now French officials have announced a contest to redesign the Spire. To reflect a blah, blah, blah. Fuck. That.
Just give us an exact replica of the original. And make it fireproof. I don't care what space age materials you use. Just make it look exactly like the original.
No contest winner is going to improve what stood for centuries. It will just stand out like a sore thumb. A turd in a punchbowl.
The BALLS of these idiots to think they can improve such a work of art! It really pisses me off.
Post modern architecture can kiss my ass. It's garbage. Just giant steel and glass boxes, slapped up on a corner with ZERO thought to actual beauty or craftsmanship. I make better looking buildings in fucking Minecraft!
France, I'm begging you to reconsider. You won't be improving anything. Look what you did to the Louvre! You let some douche slap a glass triangle smack dab in the middle of something wonderful. It's IN THE WAY of something truly beautiful.
If the French people let this horrible contest plan go forward, I say fuck it. Let's have contests to improve everything!
Let's slap a dick on Mona Lisa's face cause some douche won a contest! How 'bout robot arms on the Empire State Building?! Let's put SpongeBob at the Last Supper!
Is NOTHING SACRED?
We don't need a contest. We need The Spire. The Original.
