    Somebody from the infiltration boards dug up one of my old posts here and now they're busy hating on "taggers". I seriously started laughing my ass off while reading some of the thread over there.


    I don't think they're paying attention to who exactly was busy covering the Subway Tunnels, Rooftops, and abandoned buildings before there was an internet for them to post pictures on. :)

    I'd like to see that dick face try to "put my dead body on the wall for the next person to see"..

    My associates and I would drag him to the top of the factory and throw him off the top.

    I dont see and difference here.. Hobby with stupid fuckers and smart fuckers VS. Hobby with stupid fuckers and smart fuckers..

    Wheres the median?

    When looking at graff from the outside, it is much easier to see the dumb folks than the smart ones... to their credit, 'urban explorers" just trespass, we trespass and then paint what we find. I can see why they would get pissed off, and agree to an extent. Some things just look better without graffiti.

    That 'heartless' cat on the otherhand....

    It's interesting to read about what graffitists (I never call them artists if I can help it, bceause little of that is art) think of urban explorers. I know many of them trawl UE related web sites to find locations of places to trash. But it was interesting to see what they thought of our hobby and ourselves. I think I will be making a definte decision not to just give out locations of places much anymore because a lot of the sites I used to give out location information for just end up getting trashed by vandals and painters.

    Admittedly there are some "artists" out there, who do nice work, who's material does enhance a place. But the vast majority of them seem to be taggers who just go around scrawling crap like a dog peeing on poles to mark it's territory.(and I've heard they make that distinction themselves, with associated arguments over the true art form and taggers

    i quoted this from the site

    iiiiinnnnnnteresting...

    some of them actually agree with what was said and some just wont get over how much they hate or dont understand why kids hit up shit that aint theres. and for some reason the haters all seem to believe that "taggers" all consider themselves artist and shit, i thought that was funny for a few reasons.

    putting a dead body that weighs 150-200 pounds on a wall would be no easy task, you would need alot of duct tape
