"TAGGERS"

Recommended Posts

Guest 87centHitMan

I don't know if this applies to anyone else or not, but almost all of my close friends have a "tag" even though they never paint and can't really do it that well. I think it's because when my sketches and magazines are all over the house and there's pieces in the basement and everything, it tends to grow on people without them really consciously knowing it when they're constantly exposed to it. They can still name writers locally and notice all our shit and other that are getting up in the town, and they can name the nationally famous writers too.But I think it's kinda cool, though. It's like there's a little spark of intrest there, but they really don't have the time, determination, or balls to go out and do it. Some end up really doing it, but not many.

i have a couple close friends like that. they like graff, do sketches, notice graff, and have their own words, but when it comes to actually writing, they are the biggest and toyest pussies on earth. it makes me mad because they never improve or even try to improve because they get frustrated(sp?).

yeah, I have some friends that are into it, and one of them is pretty good, but she doesn't really get into it. She gets up here and there, but doesn't really have her heart in it.

Yeah, I really don't get the point in saying you're a writer and you don't get up. If I was to meet another writer from my town and I wasn't up and I claimed I was a writer, I'd be embarrassed. If you don't get up or have never been up before, you don't write. Plain and simple. I meet lots of writers that are just down with the shit. When you talk to them, they sound like they know, and they'll name good up writers, but when you hand them a marker and they do a tag, it's a big "69" with a star around it. What the fuck? Either get up or quit claimin. If you're really dedicated and you're real about it, you'll get good and you'll get up. You get what you give.

I feel that space.

 

I totally agree with ya 87, if you don't hit anything other than paper in the comfort of your own home you are missing 80% of graff. Being out in the risk is an important part. Fucking people....

I don't know. My girlfriend used to (and to some degree, still) really hates that I write(in public) but eventually she started tagging a few spots with me. It's wierd though because after she does it she starts telling me how she doesn't understand why she want's to do it, she just does it. And she feels good when she get's up. She even called me the other day to tell me that the "S" in her tag "SAW" is getting tight! I'm like "get the fuck outta here!"
