When i referred to Set One, i was talking about this raver kid that weighs about 120 pounds because he's so fucked up from his drugs. The set i was referring to showed me copied sketches of ewok pieces and in no way would anyone be afraid to tell him he's a biter. So i know we're talking about different Sets..

ok...

 

The kid your talking about is not SET1. If thats what he said to you then he must not be from Boston...or is way 2 fucked up on drugs to realize that someone else has been writing that name for years in Boston.

Trust me.....if you ran into the Real Set from Boston you would not walk away from him saying that he bites......nor would you say that smack to his face....you would get crushed......

MISSION HILL, Boston,Ma.

 

Graffiti vandal, victims meet

 

 

By Ric Kahn, Globe Staff, 10/7/2001

 

asmin Ruiz, a 20-year-old student at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, wore a brown top over a maroon T-shirt, sneakers, and a backpack.

 

 

That night at Mission Church, he also wore a scarlet V - figuratively speaking. V for vandal. Graffiti vandal.

 

 

Ruiz anxiously arose before members of the Mission Hill crime committee and others packed into the church basement on the last Thursday of September, and satisfied an unusual piece of his court sentence. In July, after admitting spray-painting a building with his street name, ''prime,'' Ruiz was ordered by a Roxbury District Court judge to help remove his tag from the streets; tutor middle-school students in French, his native tongue; write the neighborhood an apology letter; and atone in front of his victims.

 

 

''I'm here to apologize for tagging the Roxbury Crossing Condominium building,'' Ruiz solemnly began, flanked by his lawyer, as required by the court. ''I'd just like to say that I didn't do it to deface the property or to cause anybody harm.''

 

 

People had urgently slid into folding chairs that evening - about 50 of them, including police officers, a woman with a cane, and a man with breathing tubes in his nose - to view Ruiz.

 

 

''I'd just like to say that I'm in art school, and I wouldn't want to call graffiti art, because I'm sure a lot of people disagree with that,'' Ruiz continued. He had scratched his thoughts on paper five minutes before he arrived, but he spoke without them, for one minute. ''I like to draw, I like to paint. That's why I went to art school. It was in that ... idea that I did the graffiti.''

 

 

Assistant Suffolk district attorney Yaw Gyebi Jr. had made the Paris native's appearance a condition of his plea agreement after residents said they'd wanted Ruiz to see that he and other graffiti vandals, including his codefendant roommate, Matthew Goldstein, had not only left marks on neighborhood buildings, they'd also left lines - of concern - on people's faces.

 

 

''Putting graffiti on somebody else's property risks their lives,'' Bill Browning, 78, told Ruiz during a 45-minute question-and-answer session. ''I always try and go out and cover the graffiti within hours after I discover it. Sometimes that means I go out on ice. My bones are fragile.''

 

 

A cross-current of emotions swirled throughout the room. Some believed Ruiz's exhibition of remorse would stop other vandals. Others were dubious. One woman thought the scene was overkill, and emphasized it was not a murder case. Others thought it cheesy, and felt Ruiz should be cleaning toilets. Some questioned his character. Others looked into his eyes, and said they saw something true.

 

 

''I will absolutely not do it again,'' Ruiz concluded.

 

 

''God bless you,'' Margarida Freitas Stanton, 70, later said from the audience. As she made peace with Ruiz, his stoic lips finally curled into a smile.

Guest KING OF HELL

THE KING OF HELL wishes to take time to recognize the fact that while KEM5 is a friend, decent human, and not too shabby of a painter, he 1. is NOT from Boston, though he may live there now, 2. openly, (and rightly so) tells people and magazines that he is not a good reprezentation of boston(check the graphotism with the 3A interview...) and 3. is hardly what Boston has been about.

no offense KEM.

 

 

I know who did the eyeballs, and the question marks, and the pills (along with the angels), but im wondering if posting it would be bad considering the fact that some people never got pinned for them....

 

WHATAJERK? any thoughts on that?

Hmmm, if the dude himself shies away from that sort of representation and people still mention him in that way, then mine is probably a lost cause. Getting kids to focus on people that really are part of the Boston tradition might be impossible. Not that there are that many candidates actually left in the city anymore...

 

Good to see KEM sees things with some insight, though.

If I remember correctly all of the icon/ writer pairings above have been mentioned on Steelo. Which was undoubteldy more closely followed by Nancy O and her network than this place. I wouldn't sweat it too bad. Statue of limitations as well.

 

Then again, if she's going to read anything on this board it would be a thread with Boston in the subject line.

EDITED FOR CONTENT.

 

if homeboy changed his name, it's probably for a reason. THE LAW doesn't know the situation, but let the writer in question decide what info he wants broadcast on the internet,not you.

Yeh I painted with this dude ego a few times and it was quite fun, and a 138 newjack who dropped out of my life when I dropped the other crew we were in. It struck me that 138 was in general definately nothing to write home about when it came to piecing, but definately up.
