    you're the ones who read the latest mass appeal on the train ride back home from scrap yard, feeling like youre up on real new york graffiti because you know ken cappelos irak collection by heart while you ignore the miles of gems just out your train window. you're the ones who can't wait to get to the the graffiti capital of the world, where you proceed to take pictrues of year,merz,noel, kerse,skrew,rates and post them on a website peretrating the fraud that they rep new york. youre the ones who go the shows, blackbook in hand, praying that some attention craving looser wearing camo and a filas visor will sign your book. your'e the ones who spend hours dissecting every last detail of a loomit piece you found somewhere in brooklyn, feeling like youre on the cutting edge of this magical art form. you're the maggots, the ones who make the job of some blood sucking advertising executive for reebok or pepsi so easy.
    you're the ones who don't see us coming.

    hes right though
    but you dont see me complaining cause i been into this shit long befopre pathetic D&B kids were wearing tribal thanks to fred durst. I love graffitti because of the culture and the lifestyle you have to live to be in it, not because i have nothing better to do and six years into sketching i picked up a can and decided to get the fuck up, no longer sticking tags here and there and crappy marker bombs in bathroom stalls. I will master the contorl of cans and it will be a media i wont let go of even if they put the death penalty on vandalism. FUCK YOU IF YOU AINT TRUE TO THIS AND FUCK YOU IF YOU THINK GRAFF IS TRENDY... ITS A FUCKING LIFESTYLE SO COME CORRECTLY!!!!!!!!

    bitterakro onpoint again. important thing to keep in our little heads...the bestest way to peep graffiti is always in person. always. no exceptions. so everyone should take any kind of i-fame, magazine fame, book fame etc with a big ol grain of fucking salt. these other mediums allow us all to be more informed than in the past, but it is no substitute for the real thing. know your city and make it interactive in a way the web never can.
