    sure just about everbody on this site does graffiti and has stories and advice to tell and what not, but why not organize a "graffiti assembly" if you will...?
    has anyone read BOMB THE SUBURBS by William Upski Wimsat? if not you need to...its all about graffiti writing.... anyways...in Chicago William would organize nights where almost every writer in Chicago would go bomb on the same night...and in the morning...well...it looks like the mysterious graffiti fairies were a bit busy the night before, anyone think this can be done through 12ozprophet?...i realize there's plenty of greasy pork layin' around here, but we should be able to come up with ways to get past the security issues
    what do you guys think?
    :idea:

    yea..if ur in a crew, that seems wise. otherwise "get together and go bombing festival" is asking to get arrested.

    no way man...not unless peeps bring drugs and weapons with them.
    it would be like a mob kinda...if 1 person goes into walmart and steals a cd player...he'll probably get arrested if he gets caught, but if 200 people run into wal mart at the same time and start taking stuff out of the store with them, very few will see any consequences at all.

    thats pretty funny just to imagine...

    Listen....
    The only way this would work is with HARD WORK. I have read Bomb the Suburbs, and that was a great idea for Chi-town back then. The fact of that matter is technology has caught up to the criminal world. I believe in your idea, just on another scale. Try this.
    go to hiphop/punk shows around your city, you can meet other writers this way. Once youve met writes from other crews and get to know them you can work on this idea of yours. Stay UP!!!!

    All City

    What your refering to is an all city meeting, and yes chicago has one about every two years from some one trying to relive upski's tales but testosterone, and ego's get in the way, fights break out and no one gets to paint.
