The Right Profile

So there's this block of flats being built in Cork city centre and they looked like they might be quite nice pads. But then they picked a name for the development - The Elysian. Mother of God.

How on Earth could anyone with a modicum of self-respect end up having 'The Elysian' as their address? The Elysian Fields are, after all, the supposed final resting place of the blessed, chosen by the gods, in Greek mythology. I mean how pretentious can you get?

Well even more pretentious, as it turns out. As you can see from these photos they're not trying to advertise somewhere to live - they're trying to advertise a lifestyle while they're at it. The Elysian - 'a very stylish affair' indeed. Vomit inducing.
