A few weeks ago I arrive at the car park as normal. Something’s not right. The wall looks different, then I realised the Ghostbusters mural (the very one in the banner above!) was gone. This made me glum
A week later – the new mural started to take shape. With the inclusion of wolves, tags (I think that’s what they are called) and a parchment made me thankful as I feared it would be painted over by a gaudy UVF mural. So now it seems to be completed and it’s a Game of Thrones mural. I’ve never watched it (due to it being on Sky, it’s probably never going to be on Netflix and doing stuff the not legal way is a massive pain in the arse) so I’m quite indifferent.
Though having the mural makes sense seeing GOT is filmed in Belfast and surrounding area plus I think I’m the only bearded person in Belfast who isn’t actually in it. The mural also has that chair that everyone sits on in their Facebook profiles.
All in all – fair enough – but I’ll still miss the Ghostbusters. Also, it’s appeared to have eaten into the Angry Birds mural.. waaaah! But these things happen, need to evolve etc and thankfully it’s not another tawdry paramilitary one.
