    message to Julio Mr Fatbucks
    You only prove how marketing and mediocrity can blind generations into buying your retarded take on Hip Hop /Writing culture.
    i watched your sluggish fat money grabbing mind gradually work it's way into this culture .
    By hanging out at jams created mostly by enthusiasts impassioned by the culture and what it could be in the future .

    You Julio (and sidekicks) are nothing but a glory hunting capitalist F**K .
    Like a kid who couldn't score unless the ball was placed at your feet aiming directly at goal!
    this culture deserves to be underground and not exposed to make a quick buck from what is by and large a very mediocre take on this culture.(i refer to your "RAG")
    You have added nothing to the idealism of jams and events in this country (financially or even in interest) instead you go straight for the mass marketing of spraypaint rucksak urban woo haa putting cans in the hands of retards BLINDED by the rehtoric of your publication .
    Once graphotism started to appear in a high street way the ploriferation of shit tags and dubs (toy is to good a word ,calling these monkeys toys would be implying they are trying to excel in some way!) and pieces has taken over every part of the uk.
    The vast majority of which is easily forgotten by those who are actually interested in hopefully furthering this culture. You Julio Fatbucks however exist only in the moment in the next cheque some sad kid sends you for another 3 " thick marker filled with ink you could make beter using flour and milk or another dull installment of your "rag".
    Read the signs crimewatch,Labours attack on graffiti...it's over there will soon be a massive drop in writing due to government policys and never under estimate the fashionable youth who will realise that buying 800ml montana to destroy there middleclass suburban hamlet is no longer a neccesity when faced with a stretch in jail with real criminals.
    You'll probably be off spending all your fatbucks though not giving a f**k that you didn't do a thing to enhance the culture in the publics eye instead trivialising it into some pathetic "Urban Youth Culture" .

    F**K you and anyone who thinks your mag is worth wiping a dogs arse with .
    Your a Glory Hunter who so blinded by his mailorder catalogue (aren't they usually the pursuit of bored housewives?) profits you can't see the end of this pathetic chapter in Writings history.

    In the future beware of Glory Hunters they usaully hang a bout like a bad smell and are by and large never invited !

    What exactly is your problem? You don't like the idea that a company is attempting to make money from graffiti? Wake up and smell the coffee. Every single magazine, video, book, t-shirt, blah, blah, blah, whether they're made by writers or not, has one thing in mind - to make a profit. Are you peeved because you didn't think of the idea first? The reason why decent mags like Bomb Alert and Hold No Hostage took early retirements was because the people behind them probably found that they didn't have enough free time, energy and cash to devote to something that isn't very rewarding. Graphotism has been down that road but faith has ensured it's survival.

    All your talk of this culture deserves to be underground is so dated. You go on about jams and events - surely these are attempts to bring it overground? Oh, but of course, it's an attempt on your terms, an attempt that will benefit you.

    At the end of the day, what Graphotism gets up to should not concern the real graffiti writers. They just go out and do it for themselves and I'm reffering to the illegal painting of trains here because walls and legal spots in my opinion show public acceptance of graffiti. culture. So if you're so down, get on with it and don't worry what others do.

    Next please...

    Master G someone who is definately Blinded by the rag or is profiting along side mr Fat bucks julio N greasy ass.
    This company ironicly is encouraging the act of graffiti no to further the culture but to sell more paint and bullshit token rubbish.
    The fact is most of the decent art being created in the uk is by writers who have always been down well before Fat bucks steeped up with his marketing plan!
    the rag is encouraging more and more people to paint graffiti .
    But i realy wonder if there reasons for doing it are PURE or if they are just being sold the idea of some kind of activity like football(signiture cans endorsed by writers Whats next leagues???) , or street ball IT'S BULLSHIT marketing is taking this culture to the toilet there is little attempt by fat buks & Co to make something realy fresh happen take it out of this mail order world and put there supposed knowledge to use , but i guees they'd rather profit from 2 minute toys seeking cheap fame under the guise that they might get a 2" photo in the RAG.
    Master G your among the ones blinded by the fatbuk corporation I feel sorry for you.

    As far as i am concerned graffiti is an activity and any encouragement for people to take it up can only further the culture NOT DESTROY IT. your obviously sour about sommert. is it because you don't want others participating in something that is regarded as being universal?

    I am in total agreement with you that most of the decent art being created in the UK is by writers who have always been down well before Graphotism emerged on the scene - but then that's bound to be the case isn't it? Someone with 10 years more painting experience than the next man is always going to have that upper hand. What you need to ask yourself is whether more of the younger generation would be active if Graphotism never existed. If you think they wouldn't then you are highlighting the huge influence, whether good or bad, Graphotism has had.

    The UK scene post-Chrome Angels and pre-decent graf mags, specialist paint and the internet was interesting but hardly on par with the rest of Europe. If Graphotism hadn't bridged the gap the scene would probably be dead by now and you'd be reading some gardening web site instead of this one. I just think you're one of these 'old school' heads who fears the recent evolution in graf will topple you from a throne that you've comfortably held... until now.

    If the 'RAG' , as you call it, didn't print illegal work it wouldn't be a true representation of the culture. And yes, you can argue that the mag doesn't show everything but that's down to individuals not submitting their photos for whatever reason. Even if the magazine did shed the illegal stuff there still isn't enough quality work being done in the UK to fill it.

    As I said in my original message it shouldn't matter to a dedicated writer what Graphotism or anybody else is doing with the beloved subculture. You obviously have personal gripes with Graphotism, why don't you address their staff in the form of a direct e-mail, phone call or meeting.

    master G (aka Mr Bird)
    Ok so you've got a way with words and your definately a member of the rag staff as you appear precious about your beloved mr Fatbuks empire.
    All this chat about europe post chrome angelz blah blah . (to be blunt)you talk through a hole in your arse the writers active in the uk may not have had the same exposure and acceptance as there european counterparts (blame that on the rightwing british system) but the skills were on point The uk has a stack of writers who were pushing there own styles .
    Styles which were recognised not only in parts of europe but as far away as Australia and even new York .
    Just because they didn't approach it with german precision doesn't mean it's any less valid.
    many of those writers are still at it today none are jumping on any bandwagons .
    A lot of European writers appreciate the hardcore of writers that existed in the uk pre Fatbuks empire.
    it appears master g didn't appreciate that era (perhaps it's because he like Julio wasn't realy making a mark??)
    As for writing a formal letter blah blah have a word !
    Thats what forums are for TO VOICE YOUR OPINION
    Are you concerned that my opinion may influence a perspective customer??
    THE TRUTH speaks to Writers everywhere they can take it or leave it for what it's worth.

    What is they said in Style wars "graffiti is passed down from one youthful generation to the next"
    PFB>>>>>>>>DDS being a fine example they rose up pre fatbuks era and influenced more writers than any magazine although crews like them are probably feeling the heat due to toys overiding the scene heating up yards in an attempt to be "Down" with the fatbuks crew.
    G you need to be a little more objective and less up your own journalist arsehole.

    And he has the cheek to utter the reply "The truth? If only you knew!"

    Artcrimes has been running how long ?? Do they have charges to use there site? NO ! NO ! NO!
    And i hope you paid for the trouble Funk sample as they could probably use the dough of a fat monkey like you Julio n' greasy ass!



    I feel that Julio and Master G (i suspect this is Stylo) may choose to stop posting replys as you can see from there replys they kind of dig a large hole for themselves!
    Remember this beef uk writers have had with Julio and the Rag for some years now, this by no way to be looked upon as some kid "Beefing " on the web .
    Although i reckon it may be the first time anyone has heard these remarks form the Grabajism office.

    keep keepin' on...

    Morning all, especially THETRUTH. I didn't want you to think I'd opted against posting something else yesterday afternoon, it's just I couldn't take my computer on the golf course with me, and despite my intentions to post something last night I remembered I had a social life so drinks at the Met bar took priority.

    Anyway, I took great offence to one of your comments yesterday - the one where you assume I am Mr Bird. Please! I'm far more youthful and good looking than him. Close, but no cigar.

    It would be great to know your true identity (and I have my suspicions of who you are already) so that we could have this discussion face to face but you are right, this is a web foum and you are entitled to your opinion, albeit anonymously. As a result I will stand down from this argument and let you brandish your anti-capitalist, holier than thou, true to the game sword over the evil Graphotism empire. I imagine you will have staggering success because graffiti is dictated by whatever's been said on the internet, I really can't understand how graffiti survived before this marvellous inter web invention.

    Golf & metbar =TOTAL ARSEHOLE

    Whats funnier is you will have no idea whatsoever as to my identity ?? Gutted aren't you?
    Bet your pissed at having to think about this anonymous opinion(instead of another way to profit from others work!) stirring it up on your pathetic attempt at a forum.
    your aesthetic is shit,crass,tacky bulllshit.
    that comissioned wholecar seen rip off is PATHETIC couldn't you come with something FRESH!
    Naah? I ask the impossible from a bunch of money grabbin met bar golf playing MUPPETS
    Read the opinions G man the anti graphotism sentiment is still strong .
    THE TRUTH about writing is it's FREE you shouldn't have to pay for NOTHING kind of makes the RAG seem pointless once you take out it's mailorder theres not a lot left of any substance.
