    I guess if you're only looking at the letters that'd be true. But with JA flicks it's usually about location or volume... This flick here is an example of both.

    that shit's just stupid. if you have the time enough to do 22 filled in bombs, do a fucking piece.

    i feel sorry for people that can just do throwups. how lame.

    to paraphrase "It's not about beautifuller or bigger, it's about more"

    Also, doing a single piece wouldn't have had the same effect- namely making the other writers driving by say "god damn, JA's at it again" The extravagance of the act is what's important, not style or how good that shit will look in a magazine. And even so, any writer with a bomber's heart would would look at that, even as a flick, and smile. That's pure NYC graffilthy.

    And another thing... the idea that writing is all about piecing and that you should feel "sorry" for someone who doesn't piece is straight up silly. Piecing is over-valued these days because of magazines and the internet. In the day-to-day graffiti life of a real city like NYC, San Fran or Los Angeles where competition is Darwinian, the real currency is tags and throwups. Your "earning power" is defined by how much heart you have to get over with those.

    JA, who has as great a will for getting over as anyone, with only tags and thowups, has put a bigger stamp on graffiti than practically everyone on this board put together. And he's done it while everyone in America who cares to know has known his real name and what he looks like.
