PHOTOGRAPHER: "I've been here all day but I can't seem to find any flattering angles of this thing."

PUG AWARDS "F it. Let's just use these four."

The top appears quite heavy handed from these angles. Not sending vibes of beauty.

as someone who went to a post- 70s high school, it makes me sad that they are destroying a pre-ww2 school. those schools had a bit of class, and didn't have the whole guantanamo vibe going down, as the new 'school' will almost definitely have.
