are 99 purrcent more likely to fall fatally to their death from painting on railway bridge

more likely than non-graff artists to be underappreciated in their woyk

harrassed and maligned by society - wait we are talking about the same thing right? Goth statistics?

 

okay here's a real one:

less likely than other artists to actually make a living, unless you consider community service hours a 9 to 5; and 5 to 10 a cushy job with room and board.

more dirtier than any of the studio arts

 

[edit emphasis on Goth ]

Oh yeah, I do remember him being straight edge, actually. But, anyway, knowing things about the personal life of other writers should have nothing to do with what you do. Like, if I was a baseball player, it might be important to respect an old timer and know a little about him, maybe, but it's not necessary to know if he was an alcoholic or vegetarian, or whatever.

 

* Like, seriously, think about it. Bitching at me for "trying to become part of the graffiti world" and not knowing a really good writer from thousands of kilometres away that passed on was a straight edge? Come on, now.

 

 

like, seriously

 

you take issue with my expecting some kids to learn something about the history, and if they are ignorant, i can't correct them? you insinuated yourself into that argument, so go buy a clue. it is not as though there are thousands of dead famous graffiti writers out there. expecting some 'writers' ha, to know something about them isn't insane of me.

 

this isn't about starting national enquirer on writers. and as you mention, in the end, you did know about that shit, you decided to forget. it is after all, kind of common knowledge.

 

let's review: thread started about stats, post made about writers never being straight edge, me correcting that idiotic assumption with some obvious example, you getting uppity at me for that shit and starting this.

Okay, well, I understand how it can get annoying when someone doesn't have common knowledge on something that they choose to be a part of. I get you there. What we disagree on is what common knowledge is. The reason I realize the irony of, say, Nace's situation is because I know people who knew people who were in the car, so I heard about it very soon after it happened, and it always affects you more when it's someone you know (friend of a friend, celebrity, or otherwise). Of course, I have read the thread since, but I wouldn't expect a fourteen year old to know these things.

 

Not every kid can afford style wars or rack magazines from the mid 90's, or even have internet access. I'm sure there are people out there who have gone entire careers without ever having met more than five writers. Plus, things change, and never more drastically than in the world of graffiti.

 

I'm just saying, I think it's unrealistic to expect people from all over the world to know about the personal choice of one writer; to put that knowledge up there with, say, Taki 183, or David Gunn, or whoever. I mean, I used to tell my one buddy about what I think of as important history, and he would just tell me to shut up; that he didn't care. Regardless, he is a very skilled writer. You can't expect everyone to give a fuck, but you can choose to respect those who do, is all I'm saying.
