    cool beans. you can reach me at remotela@mail.ru

    i try not to do anything stupid. i have been in the "game" since 93 out here in l.a. (many different aliases), and definately know and respect the do's and dont's of graf. "remote" is just a part time thing for me. i am 25 years old, and don't need any more felony convictions on my record. its just a hobby while i am out here, or visiting tokyo. an occasional rooftop or bomb, or maybe a night out with my stickers and markers. with that said, i want to keep "remote" a clean, respectable, beef free name.

    I was in tokyo for a couple of weeks this year and a couple the previos i emailed every japanese graff site over there to try hook up with someone to paint with and got a total of zero responses hospatality was overwelming. I wasnt that impressed with the lines and the only suburb with much damage that i saw was shibuya and a small amount in shinjuku. I did however catch a fuckinnnnnggggg big ass legal???? wall in yokahama just outside the station with a bates piece on it as well as many other nice pieces. In shibuya i saw a few tags by amaze and twister and a wall by them aswell. Slapons seem to be huge over there aswell. i have pics i will post of some slapons soon.

    that tag in the upper left hand corner above the twist is yoka, written in japanese.

    dont think that the writers didnt want to hang with you, because i know the majority of the writers in japan and theres only a few kids in tokyo that know english. believe me if you met any they would treat you as if you were twist himself.

    the wall in yokohama is all illegal. and as for painting along the train lines, thats an american thing. i dont really get it myself but they dont really paint the lines. only a few have caught on that a train can be a moving museum.

    also i'd like to add as a side note if you are coming to japan do not for the love of god just go to tokyo. if you really want to see japan travel anywhere outside of it. that place is a hell hole. for suggestions kyoto nara osaka sapporo nagano fukuoka are ten times better. not necessarily for graff but what the "real" japan is like. just in case anyones cares.
