    They're a trend for sure!! I personally turn every writer I am friends with on to them as the only way to go!!! I turned to them after I had been arrested for painting walls and stupid shit so I figured that I would turn to a more quiet medium which turned out to be really fun and disappointing at the same time!!! You can drive around forever trying to find something to paint and not come up with anything but when you do it's like JACKPOT!!! I've struck GOLD!!!
    Very up and down..............

    i dont think that hitting fr8s is trendy, at least not where i come from.
    however i do feel that the "numbers" game is a new trend. people going nuts and heating out yards just to get numbers, i dont think thats cool.
    doing that wilkl only result in destroying the fr8 scene.. im sure some
    people will agree that their yards have increased heat since 96, .
    oh well..

    maine trains..

    at least you all have walls...
    i get up on the train lines and the amtrak just started up here so that shit is going to get marked..we have few legals but a few cities that are bombed to fuck..its nothing compared to boston or new york though..theres alot of people that give a fuck about graff being up in the city and if they can turn you in they will..so paranoia is the norm.
