    I like putting my "marker" on front doors in the suburbs with McSalads.

    Haha, that dude said "morans"

    When I was protesting Bush back when I gave a damn I remember seeing some redneck with a "Get a brain morans" sign that they made in support of the war.

    Americans are teh smart.

"I'd love to catch the jerk spray painting my wall, blah blah blah, scum of society, kill them all blah blah".

    "An 18-year-old can buy cigarettes, vote, and go into the army, but he can't buy a can of spray paint in Manhattan. It's silly."

    Eh, he's got a point.

    Im 23 though, so I don't really care.

    to SpreadAIDS: i think he's admitted that he's never really gotten up, moreso i think he said something like "i've never got my art out of my garage but...i went on to be a millionaire so BOO YAH" basically.

    graffiti
    noun
    Etymology: Italian, plural of graffito
    : the illegal or unauthorized defacing of a building, wall or other edifice or object by painting or otherwise marking it with words, pictures or symbols.

    I honestly liked some of his early tee designs that were back when he blackbooked them, then the entire Echo line blew up and became a fad. Once something becomes a fad its destined to go out sooner or later.
    If he wants to start marketing freedom of expression, why not start sponsoring writers?
