    ok so i know yer supposed to post flicks on this board but , i just had a question to ask all yous guys..:
    Have you heard/seen the band "boxcar racer"? I have seen their record cover and its a boxcar with "bocar racer" written on it in typical graff letters. What do you think of this, do you think this is one step closer to the "mainstreaming" of freight painting? just would like to hear what people have to say. Oh, and if anyone can find the album cover please post it.

    boxcar racer is a side band from some of the guys in Blink 182....the music is mediocre at best, the graffiti in their video is pathetic and no i don't think this marks the mainstreaming of boxcar artwork.....but give it time, its bound to happen very very soon.

    my homie did all the graff for BOXCAR RACER. he is friend of travis and he's been painting graff for like 12 years. travis asked him to do the art for the video and for the cover. i dont see how it is in anyway selling out the art. its just writers making money.

    i dont speak for everyone but in my opinion...anyting blink182 touches magically turns into "sold out" material. they are no good. not just musically, they are awful human beings

    jesus, no one made any mention about the graffiti writer selling out...i just stated that the graff in the video sucked ass....plain and simple.

    i dont know the guy but i dont think that sounds like something a writer who's got his head in teh right place would be doing...i mean blink182 is real bad...
