    **** GES ONER ****

    I swear, if GES would do a pure connection piece, I would send him a $1,000 check the day after I saw it. Hope you're doin' well bro, the work is forever styled.

    lets talk.

    i read some peoples posts on here and i want to hit some of you in the back of the head. thank god i dont live in your cities. there's serveal things i wanna talk about/get out there in the open. 1. Your spot is unique..you might be lucky..you might not be. before you diss anyone for anything they paint consider where they might be painting. i have so much respect for the guys who piece in hot yards. being in a position to paint and look over my shoulder at the same time i realise how hard it is to put up a piece. i see things that some guys do on freights that look like productions. i also know their spots are amazing. i've seen photos and heard first hand info. yes. those guys can rock. any one rocking freights like that gets my respect just because i could never pull off anything like that here. some of you bash pieces without thinking of their background. do you ever think when you see an unfinished piece...'i wonder what happened during that one?' i know i do. just today i had to bounce with the piece unfinished. i'm just asking you to check your ego at the door. you might have one spot you might have twenty. deal with it and dont brag...and consider what everyone else has. 2. You are not cool because you hit freights. freights are a trend. i'm seeing more kids run to freights because bombing is becoming a harder deal to pull off. its not pushing everyone to freights and its certainly not the reason for the latest trend of freight train graffiti. yeah it might be getting harder to find panels. oh well. good rule of thumb...you got more colors? do you have more skill? do you know the person? chances are you could get aaway with going over them. 100% odds say if you completely cover their piece no one will even know. if that car passes the guy who hit it again 50/50 says he wont even notice he had hit that car before unless its uniquely marked. quit bitching about open panels...there's always a solution unless its a wholecar or e2e. 3. lighten the hell up. Someone may get 1000's a year. so what? once again odd's are you arent the next big name. i appreciate you trying. hell i wish i got 3000 a year. who doesnt? just enjoy what you get. this particular point doesnt apply to too many of you..but as far as toys and stuff goes from blowing up your spots: fucking deal with it. what do you think people did back in the day? they dealt with it. kick that kids ass. tell him whats up. take his paint. do what you have to do to take care of it...as long as its not murdering someone. i've heard jokes about someone slicing someones neck and putting them in a boxcar to die. its a joke...but seriously...take care of your shit but hell..stay cool while doing it. graffiti may be your weekend life but you still got shit to do during the week. word to raildeviant for bringin this up. 4. one year wonders. they come and go. enjoy them. i saw someone bitching about how they hate new jacks and kids from the middle of nowhere. to me the best writers are the ones who sneak out of left field. it always makes me happy to see someone new. with mags and the internet..its hard to catch new flavor once in awhile..and you wouldnt think it was. some kids attitudes may be bad and yeah that does suck but like someone said they probably wont be around in 5 years. lets just hope the damage they do is tolorable. 5. freight damage..does no one good. once again i will stress the importance of staying off the numbers...no one can. im preaching to the choir i know but some of you have to realise..this is killing things for us. dont take bad order cars..dont blaze the blackboxes...and dont get spotted. right now is the time to be as stealth as possible when in the yards. there's countless info on this..especially the 'how to blow up your yard' threads. read them...they are here to help you. 6. keep your mouths shut. part of the problem with freight trendyness is because you brag. dont take your new painty buddy to the yard just yet. it took me a year before i showed my partner in crime around the local yards. he was too scared to go by himself. good. use that. dont take kids before they're ready. and how do yuo know if they're ready? use your instincts. would yuo wanan see their shit on a train? no? dont take them. dont even mention it. 'do you hit trains man?' 'sometimes.' 'oh.' it keeps them quiet. thats what you're going for. 7. Last but not least....pretending to be cool. some of you are hypocrites. you say one thing then change your mind and pretend to say something else. stop. you're not impressing anyone but yourself. either you know it or you dont and its okay if you dont..either ask or stay silent until you learn. the times will come..dont push it. disclaimer: i am by no means famous..smart..or 'big in the scene.' i might not even know what i'm talking about...and/or you might not agree with me...fine..thats cool..but dont be a toy by acting like a bully..no..i probably wont ever see you so i cant hit you in your teeth. but thats your choice...look cool if you want to. this doesnt apply to everyone in all areas..some of you are more educated than others. i mean no disrespect..just to show how i see things. sorry for getting so long winded. peace.

    Bates style has changed more than Tease masturbates...
  5. All the same to you my friend, happy b-day. I'm celebrating my 21st here coming up. Cancers rock.

    Wow...great memories. I miss that regiment of Houston's graffiti scene...

    Cops have never been of any help to me what so ever. Seven hit and runs, four speeding tickets and multiple close-call chases later, I hate them all. Fuck any cop. If my house gets broken into, I'm not gonna call anyone but the insurance company, if even them. Renters insurance is your police on theft.

    DOIN' THE DAMN THANG!!>>>>>>>>

    Finally! Can't wait to catch some of those rail max trucks sittin near me...how sick is that gonna be when pieces hop off the rails onto the highways! You wanna talk about bad accidents happening after a "OH SHIT!" squeal from spotting some nice work sitting 3 feet from you out your car window.
  10. Whaddap fellas. I need to get some info on file swapping programs and I couldn't think of a better place to come for it. I'm upgrading my PC to Windows XP (ack.) and I've caught word that Kazaa doesn't work on XP...SO: I need a new file sharing program that WORKS. I fucking hate Soul Seek so don't even mention it; there's better ones out there. Macintosh actually has some good ones but as far as PC goes I've never found anything better than KazaaLite. What do you guys suggest and/or what are you using to get your mp3s and pirated software?

    day vs. night

    Fr8rokr: I delt with that shit for years. The only viable solution I know of is just to move. I switched states and multiplied my numbers by 20 just because of location. I used to have a balanced diet of almost everything and now I'm solely stuck on one thing because it's everywhere and a LOT less chill than anything else. Now I wonder how many scenes can say that...
  13. Southern kid


    So who's for keeping the clean train thing on the downlow? The last place you want something like that is on a site like this. :o

    If you think paint mist "rinses off" then I bet you're not using Rusto. :crazy: Dumb joke.

    day vs. night

    There's serveral perks to painting at night, at least for me. I can't paint in the daylight without feeling weird anymore. My reasoning is that 1.) Night time provides you with greater probablity of hiding without getting caught; 2.) There are less people out and about. If you leave your spot at 4am, you leave without anyone seeing your car, or you; 3.) Everything is more chill and relaxed. You can honestly calm down more, piece better and be on your way faster, in my opinon. If I'm out during the day and I hear a noise, I scope it out, but if it's at night time, there's less noises and even better, there's less of a chance that it's something significant so I spend less time checking out whats going on than I do painting and concentrating on my piece; 4.) Painting at night makes you a better writer, in terms of being able to paint and see your colors in the dark, fading colors and hitting your lines in one shot; 5.) It's more convienient for me with my lifestyle to go paint at night rather than during the day because I've just got too much shit going on to get out there when the sun is shining. So, yeah, the only drawback that I find for night time painting is that you can't get great flicks, just decent ones. So what's the perks of daytime painting? Dayflicks? Being able to see what you're doing? If your spot is chill enough that you can bust out some crazy steez during the day then rock on, paint the shit out of that spot and never take it for granted. If you're just gonna bomb trains during the day, act all hard and snag your pussy flicks, I hope you at least have a decent digital to go with your good idea, cause that shit is as good as gone anyway. And to war pigs: No kidding...I was doing day freights less than 2 years ago and that's just near impossible now, at least recently where I've been geographicly. 9/11 is my comfortable source for blame, but I'm sure there's more to it than that... *** And in what grade did I learn how to proof-read?

    This is a Freakin' Ridiculous idea but........

    This is why trains are getting harder to do. Take your mentality elsewhere, please.

    id number placement?

    Seems like placing them on the door or around the front of the car would be an ideal solution as well. How often can you read the information from bewteen the lines without being right on it? Fr8otech made a good point on the timeline/logistics of it all. Floating the numbers and all over information would make me somewhat happy though. But I paint too big to avoid them all completely anyway. One of the reasons I began painting so large was to make going over stuff easier. I kinda like going around stuff too, but apparently not everyone does. ;)

    If that's MERZ doin' the EBONY name....yeah...he should have stuck with that. Anyone know him? Tell him to do more EBONY pieces. That one that made it into Scribble awhile back still wets my special spot. More EBONY.

    I miss the good ole days too. Back when you could roll by the Wall of Fame, see a sick VIZIE or NEXT or KAZE piece, and that would get you inspired enough to go try and do dayfreights all over the city before coming home at night and telling my parents that my day in Houston was "Fun." Yeah. Walking the lines during broad daylight with two cameras, one film and one digital, no one giving a shit that we were there and writing on everything. Houston was a great scene to come up in but...not so sure about now? Does anyone else miss the naivette of the common public? Used to be, you could paint anything in front of someone and they'd go, "Huh?" Now, you so much as walk toward a place of suspected graffiti and the cell comes out to phone the po's. Pssh. Fuck the public, fuck the cops. I wish we could turn back time too..graffiti used to be pretty cool...

    Sunday Morning Herald: Your friends are dying to hate you.

    Hmmm. When people make eye contact with me I say something, depending on the nature of the eye contact. If it's a girl and she's hot I most definitely spin the other way and say hello. If it's a creepy mother fucker looking to see if my white ass is looking like I need a fix (I live right on crack street! WEE!) I put on a "No, go away." face and look away, sometimes briskfully picking up the pace. So anyway, I guess that's not normal, ya know, saying "Hi!" or "Nice day, ain't it?" Hmmmmm. I live in a bubble that smells kinda like vanilla and farts. I too suck at the internet.

    * * cars inside autos catching the mist * *

    I don't know, some of those larger SUV's come close to the edges. Look at the inside of an open autorack next time, the tire rails are mad close to the edge of the car. Isn't the name of this game still "play it safe/careful" or am I becoming a philosophical dinosaur already? I realize common sense died around the same time black and white television did but come on... ......more bad advice from the most paranoid writer ever.

    this has to be done

    Bottom line is this: When looking at a piece, can you look at it and say that almost everyone who sees it will respect it as they mutter "Damn." [or other equal words] under their breath? That's style.
