sick and bored.......FREIGHTS+other shiat

Recommended Posts

self promo debate: i think mostly benching should just be onl what you catch rolling in your area.

 

but for the sake of fun stuff to look at, i am quite guilty of posting what my boys/crew has done..but i try to leave my own stuff out. sometimes, i include my own shit but i try to mix it up and have the ratio be heavy on the others and light on myself and friends. i mean no one wants to see people psot their own stuff, but at the same time most of my flicks are gonna be what got painted before what was rolling, so its like post nothing or post something. so in a sense i think a healthy ration of self promo is ok....but this thread is a good example of when kids go too far.

 

this thread sucks. if you work for years and people dedicate a thread to you, so be it..i love threads dedicated to one writer whos done tons of work. but dedicating a thread to yourself of trains you clearly painted in the same yard recently is like the epitome of lame ass self promotion. theoretically you could paint 6 panels on one of those autoracks and flick it as 6 seperat pieces and post it up. that done mean shit to me. let all this stock get out and about and get caught. seeing as how ive never seen or heard of baron and everysignle piece is the exact same so-so outline, its of no surprise to me.

 

had i just seen a baron piece rolling , id be like "thats aiiight". now im like fuck that shit. self promo is cool in ultra small doses. dont gas yourself.

to cheerleader or nise or whoever the fuck you are: eat a fat penis, or more properly in the context of this "discussion", hold a fat penis.

 

if i said i fully didn't care what you think, i'd be lying, i wouldn't even react if i didn't care but there is something in me that does care, i guess my ego. so here i go....

you talk about self promo, if you don't like it, don't look at it... no one is forcing you to constanly view this series of images, that in your opinion (and i will agree with you), have the same look. but that is what "style" is, in my opinion.

this is just a sample of some of my recent work(january-april 2003) so all you can really judge is what i'v given you to look at but then again this post wasn't really ment to big myself up or make people think i am good or bad, these are the flicks i have that havent already been thrown on here so i threw these on here to kill some time and give everyone out there in internet land something to keep their visual senses stimulated with while i'm in front of my computer being sick.

 

this was just a thing for me to do to kill time and make the day go by faster...thanks for helping:krunk:

^^ ouch ^^

 

 

True though......self promo should be laced into a thread containing other people. Like if two or three of these were mixed into a benching post....then I'm all for it.

Starting a thread of your own material on 12oz....especailly just cause you're bored....you're just asking for people to start hateing on it....

 

Also....I always think that people will be less likely to post up your shit if they actually catch it, because they know you're a self-promoter, and they don't wanna support you

please, i progressed the most once i stopped painting with you guys. don't try and credit yourself...and that has no context in our "thing"(your statement re:"you guys")

Now there's no need to be that rude... just playing.

 

Seriously though, it's just a thread.

It will drop in a few days.

It's hardly worth sweating.

actually, they are the people out putting in work on the regular. telling cheerleader to 'eat a dick' just makes you look dumb. dudes put in his work and has the history to speak from. if you didnt care about 'internet graf' dont post your shit on the internet, and dont be surprised when peopletalk about ethics.

before you made this thread, no one had heard of you, now they have. not because they caught your stuff, or cause you're putting in work, but because you ran up to them and stuck the photos in their face. did we need to look? no, and if you had labled the thread 'self promotion' many probably wouldnt have, but it wasnt presented that way.

yes, all graff is promotion, but just like dissing established writers to get fame gets no respect, neither does posting your own shit. its cheap fame and its a slap in the face to those writers who paint 300 trains a year, so that 15 of them can gets spoted.

 

you can do what you want, im just trying to explain things to you. yesterday no one knew who you were, today the majority of those that do, don't respect you.

 

im not saying its just, im just saying.

hey baron, i guess you gotta do you man..thats your perogative. but dont give us the "fuck the internet" speech when you sat here and uploaded, cropped and re uploaded at a photo host and then created a thread and cut and pasted like 20 URLs....all to show us your frieghts.

 

thats a lot of work for someone who doesnt care about the internet. being sick dont mean shit....is it ok to bite when your sick? is it ok drop dimes when your sick? no. so self promo tackiness doent get less tacky just cuz your sick. puh leeease.

 

but whatver, i hear your point: you dont care. well thats your right but its a message board and if you wanna put your shit out there for people, youre gonna get comments back. my comment is simply that you suck.

see, I dont agree with this. And I see this happening all the time. As far as walls go, If you paint something really nice in buttfuck nowhere, I'd actually like to see that, so I don't think the "self-promo" card should be pulled. its a wall, you're going to be judged on skill, not ups, because work is inherent in what your piece is going to look like(for the sake of argument anywho). But as for trains, more and more people keep "slipping" their own trains or their boys trains that they painted and photoed in day spots into posts of "benched" trains. and I think thats silly, I mean, after a while it becomes obvious, the same person has 3 or 4 dayspot trains in every post they do. I thought the whole point of trains was the fact that they moved, therein, people will see them on their own? The train moves for christs sakes. Its a lot more satisfying when someone 10 states away likes your work and goes through the effort of posting it instead of you. I thought thats why people painted trains? ehhh what do i know....

i dont think anyone really cares enough to hate you, they just dislike the much larger idea of people without scruples, who dont care enough about the game to play by its ethics.

 

take care though. good luck with the O's.

 

onesandzeros,

do we usually not get along? cant remember. either way, agree 100% on your post. i know of a few people who only get 'spoted' by their crew, or through trading flics wiht people who regularly post on here. its just kind of cheap IMO.

yo its a delicate balance though..id rather see flicks than no flicks, sure..but i was raised in the pre-internet days where mailing your flicks into a mag was a big no-no (stamplicking)...so for the itnernet its a little bit different but a lot the same. on a local level, you do street shit it gets seen, right? but what if you do rooftop fillins on some backstreet and flick it and post it all over the internet? creating the image of rep is just a bullshit slirght of hand in my opinion. so, like this thread, if i really had no scruples i (or anyone) could post *all* of the trains and roofs i paint and be like "blah-dow!"....but i aint gonna do that. if yall catch my train and wanna post it, great..but if youre not catching my trains, im obviously not doing enough. if i circumvent that porcess and just post like 30 trains i paint in a month, it gives the illusion (especially to all the little toys on 12oz) like "wow! baron has 30 trains!!!!" when in reality, we all know that those 20-30 trains might result in one or 2 being caught...and like maybe thats 2 yrs from now. so its just a gay way of going about your rep.

 

but like someone else said earlier, it has its own consequences...like before today i never heard of duke, but after toda you can be damn sure i wont flick him if he comes thru..id really hate for him to have one less train to post on his next sick day.

yeah why is it that fr8 people are always like pacifist hippie types? i think this is why i never get 100% into frieghts.....tis a matter of ethics...i guess if all you "fr8___" people are totally cool with someone posting 30 of their own trains, then so be it. but in graff 'at large'..this shit is a faux pas to say the least.
