    As 'jocking' as this may seem.....

    I'm someone who is totally ecstatic over graffiti...and as toy behavior as that may be....FUCK IT....because I LOVE GRAF!

    I love walking down a street or alley and BAM! a piece by my favorite writer. It's like finding a hidden treasure. It's something I get totally excited about. I'd heard stories about this spunky little chick, and her swirly style and the fact that she's a she, and worked hard to gain the respect of her male counterparts...I'd seen her shit on a local site...When I found my first Silo piece it brought a whole new meaning to painting and seeing her work for the first time in real life was a breathtaking experience. She inspired me...

    Recently I came across an old tunnel filled with Jugs pieces...damn that was a good day...I love those finds. I love that I can go anywhere in this city and find a Jugs piece. I hear he doesn't write anymore, damn that was shitty news! Jugs is a good lesson in motivation....When I see his shit, I just want to go out and paint...

    I gotta love the writer that I still look up to even though he crossed the fuck out of my shit in a certain yard(and shall remain nameless,***). It's lessons like that which teach me about ambition, and about being ambitious at the right time.

    Anyway the point...the point is that all of you writers who have been around, you have people that look up to you...who enjoy your art. Kids like me that are inspired, motivated and ambitious because of you. Kids who you call and refer to as "toys" whom often picked up their first can because of something of yours they saw. Writers like you give us something to look forward too. We look forward to finding your work in some assed out alley. We look forward to the day we get to meet you, or paint next to you. So just realize despite your enormous tempermental egos, we appreciate your art because it does something for us and it got us to go out and do something....and I also appreciate the fact that you've made my bedroom a much prettier place!
    Seriously, I know alot of you are bastards, but regardless of shitty attitudes I can't deny the beauty of your work, so Thanks.

    ohyeah P>S> um, Jugs if you like hopefully just have amnesia or something and u just forgot where to find paint...let me know and I'll drop some by for ya....I REALLY HATE THAT YOU QUIT PAINTING!:crazy: :crazy:

    Ms Bombastic, i think what you said was pretty cool, some one who actually speaks their true feelings about something, regardless of the fact that they are expecting to be ridiculed,you get my respect.Thats a rare find in graffiti these days.

    Wait till you start climbing shit, getting chased by crackheads, and have older big dudes wanting to beat you up... then graffiti won't be all flowers and bunnies anymore.

    :D

    Whats the big deal about all of those things? You dont have to be a graffiti writer for any of those things to happen to you......and climbing shit???????? sence when is climbing shit such a rough activity?

    hmm

    What about bums trying to pee on you, what about yuppie fucks trying to chase you down. on etime I was on the burke gilamn, at like 1:00, and theyre was some crazy guy looking for his cat, then he said it wass his dog, and then he said its name was fifi, then your freind goes, see "see "joe" hes just looking for his pet ( iwas bugging) then he starts calling for joe, and we start running and he chases us. scary

    Dude I've experienced all 3 of those things, and regardless of whether they happen or not it has nothing to do with my opinion of other writers, or their capability as an artist. I just feel like you totally missed my point...and i don't know how you could because it says: "Anyway the point:"

    How many people just ramble on and on and you don't know what the fuck and...I even pointed it right out for you....SHeeSH!


    (I'm just being a smartass Secret, I mean I get what your saying and all:crazy: )
