    ......this thread is one of the best posts i ever read on this thing. i felt almost like writing my own looooong list of similiar things...but then i figured itd be better to just leave it as it is....i think everyone has that kind of list, but what i like about graffiti writers is that we all live a sort of dual life....a very criminal "out of bounds" lifelstyle at times, but yet, its all a very creative and artisitc lifestyle, very selflessly dedicating our time and sefety to create imagery and ideas...so the dichotomy is STRIKING...here you have all these lost souls bouncing around the US, sort of living the same life.....real normal, mundane lives spliced with drama and high adventure.... reading the list reminded me of that contrast in my own life, and of that in all my graffiti friends' lives. and also, how i dont really see it other people, in non-writers. maybe its elevating our own experience, i dont know....

    instead of a list, this relaity comes to me in the form of contrasts, deep, dark, contrasts of color and form.... i like stories.

    i remember driving to go swimming with writers at 3 am, pool hopping in suburban philadelphia. the warm summer nights and the conversations in crowded compact cars....the fence hopping, the frolicking.....all sort of like a peaceful romp, but still very risky and criminal in a way. and i always felt like, man, theres really just this whole generation of kids, like skater, bike-kids, hiphop people, emo kids, writers, poets, film students, graffiti kids, etc, etc...thats exists just outside the fringe of morality/reality and yet, like clark kent/superman, we all have moms and little sisters and regular jobs with with regular people. watch the same episodes of saved by the bell or the wedding story on TLC. and yet, we all ahve these wierd little rituals that bring us together...creeping through crack houses at 4 am or squeezing between freight railroad couplings at daybreak. racking film and paint, then eating next to some jocks at taco bell....and having them look at you, trying to PLACE you all, figure out what your DEAL is....why does one kid look like a punk rocker but hes eating with some white kid who tlaks mad hiphop and the other kid just looks like a borke ass bum...but they all vibe so well...watching suburban moms or ghetto kids look quizzically at writers in taco bells around the country trying to figure out what gives....its amazingly refreshing to know that we have that little niche carved out for ourselves.....i remember playing wall ball on college campuses with ONOROK and just laughing and being silly and meeting cute little hardcore girls and not even talking about graffiti but talking about politics or tim robbins movies (good choice, mocha) ...or working in pizza shops and coffe shops and leaning on the counter talking to your 29-year old manager about her car payments and how her boyfriend likes to go camping...or talking to kids playing on the train tracks about snakes and how to pick them up.....its all kind of like a list i guess, but i see it as though graffiti writers have this highly perceptive way of seeing ourselves in the midst of something bigger, like were party to a bigger secret, unlike my struggling manager at the pizza shop, whi is good, but sees life without peripheral vision....everything is between the lines and full steam ahead. when you see your writer friend whos stolen more merchandise than anyone and done tags on peoples catwalks buy a kid an ice cream cone and talk about pokemon in a strip mall parking lot - it makes you see things in a different light, and appreciate both the fantastic and the mundane. the beauty of a list like this, is, for me, that you get a glimpse into another writer's heart, and, well, its not far from looking in the mirror....instead of looking out over denver, maybe its pittsburgh, or philly, or even that night in montreal, or rome....but its all the same...i think writers share a zest for life and the appreciation of people, pure and simple. i love this life, and to the day i die, ill never forget every vision of insanity and serenity that graffiti helped me understand. only after youve travled into the heart of darkness can you appreciate the light......by testing the boundries of morality, we define our own reality, and like colonel kurzt in f.f.coppola's masterpiece, we declare our motto: apocalypse now.

    peace to everyone doing their thing both inside and outside the lines....heres my advice to anyone that seeks to embrace this dichotomy: find the fantastic in the mundane, and the mundane in the fantasitc... for instance, next time you have to talk to that boring dead-head or jock kid at school or work, try to really discern whats unique about him/her...poke and prod a little and try to establish something that makes them a story worth telling, and not just a cliche....and , conversely, next time, you're on a rooftop or on a yard or pushing the limits of your own relaity, stop and look at how the roof is designed, what IS the buliding your on, how old, is it cinderblock or brick? who lives there or works there? what kind of rocks line the tracks? what kind of junk is laying on the trackside? what kind of dings and dents are in the train? how did they get there? so on forth.......i think this dualistic appreciation is the beauty of living outside the lines and its the first thing that struck me when i read the list....thanks for makin my day, bro.

    chris nise....
