    Snobby writers or Lurkin sketchballs!

    Discussion started by eatacan - Jun 30, 2005

    So i'm trying to figure out why it is no matter what scene a writer retreats to(and he's not a big name) unknown if you will, why is it motherfuckewrs keep quiet... nobody talk to the new kid...are we all clicky high school cheerleaders, or just too skecthed out to hand newbies our names and rock with fresh meat???!!!

    this shit bothers me being a writer who started out away from home had a hard time meeting cats and now has the same problem now even having decently acclaimed friends, but cant talk to cats even where hes from originally........

    think about it from the other writers perspective.

    you might be ok, but 99% of writers are morons.

    last thing any real writer needs is one more punk that could rat on him.

    if graffiti was easy it wouldn't be fun. that includes the social shit as well.

    Most of us are criminals. Sorry if people arent all outgoing and looking to chat it up with you just because you might also enjoy defacing things. If I dont know you, or you arent a friend of a friend who can vouch for you, chances are I'm probably not going to ever paint with you or talk to you about anything in detail.


    Pay your dues and play the game right and someone will take notice that your at least attempting to learn, after awhile and you could end up with a mentor or some shit right there.

    i didn't get into graffiti to make friends.

    i also don't need friends who are all about graffiti.

    as an artform that is illegal and anonymous, how can you actually be surprised that people in it are anti-social?

    who cares anyway?
    if you get really good, people will be all over you and trying to ride the nuts
    then you can complain about that.

    i have found for the most part the writers i meet are more personable
    than i would expect considering the illegal nature of our pursuits.
    i have only had one kid refuse to give me his name when prompted,
    i guess i startled him. otherwise i had been writing only a coupla months
    with a small group of kids at home, i went away to school and almost immediately
    found a veteran writer down at school who made me welcome to paint with him.
    so i think it is all about how you carry yourself and your first impression.

    edit: i guess it also hasta do with the availability of other writers too.
