    i think it is great when people talk shit about HIFIART.
    "HIFIART sucks. it only shows graffiti from good writers."
    "HIFIART sucks. it only has graffiti of san francisco."
    "HIFIART sucks. they don't even update like they used to."
    "HIFIART sucks. they won't put my weak ass piece on it."

    i can't see how people can complain about Hifiart. i just don't get it.
    i have told people repeatedly over the years. if you don't like it, don't come and if you think you could make a better site, do it - i'll even help you out.

    i just read a post saying there is tons of graffiti in san francisco and it is lame to just put up tags because there are so many pieces around. i wish i remembered who wrote that but they are dumb. not having a car makes it quite difficult to explore areas outside the inner-city and hunt down photos in an alley somewhere in buttfuck lake view.

    if you don't have the ability or time to run and operate a website, i understand. i struggle to even have time for the weekly updates. if you live in san francisco and you want to see more graffiti on the site; you want to see more show and event listings; you want more relevant articles; the answer is quite easy, contribute.

    we never turn down good quality submissions. so instead of bickering and complaining that, "HIFIART didn't photo my "nigguh" on the 22," grab a camera, rack a camera, buy a camera, and photo it and send it in. it's not that hard.

    did you forget all the shit talked about 12oz on that board? but now your message board is gone so you are forced to complain here...is it any wonder Police Cheif Wiggum got banned? and i highly doubt anyone used the phrase "my wack-ass piece" when referring to why their shit was not put up on the site...dont get me wrong i liked the site, but you have to wonder...

    i am not complaining. i am making a point.
    there was tons and tons of blatant hateful words directed to 12oz.
    that wasn't Hifiart talking about 12oz. that was people who used our message boards talking about 12oz. big difference.

    Yeah the message boards were cool. Unfortunately, someone decided to list off Graffiti artists' names along with what they wrote. That's a big fucking no no...

    hardest thing to find on the internet for me is old flix of just tags...
    i've looked and looked for early/mid 90's stuff....just people who used to bomb tags.
    just to remember....
    and now....hi-fi art will be there for us in 5 years when we want to have a little reminder of the smaller things around the city. I am sooo grateful for that.
    as soon as i get back to SF i'm going out with my digital camera and sending in flix every month of just the stupid shit.......like those purple barrons by:dot.! and the
    love tags and all the shit that would be forgotten eventually.....

    and the carrion artist alley flix right before they tore all of it down........ahhhh. i love those.
