Lots of shit to write on. I hate people with lots of money because im a broke student. I rather be poor around poor folks than poor around rich people. Its nice that theres bbq on eery other corner and hydro on the block and lots of fine ladies in their little summer gear. I live in what is considered by the insurance fuckbags to be a high crime area so my insurance is unreasonably high. If i can get some money i want to move to a safer neighborhood so i can get groceries cheaper and closer and my insurance isnt so fucked up. All we got around me are nasty little market/ liquorstores and i see alot of big ass rats. The ghetto has a certain ambiance. A rhythmn that is absent in the suburbs. I like that motion it keeps me alert and on point. Plus the police are alot more chill here than the suburbs. Suburbs have all the nice shit. Ghetto is laid back and living is more day to day and communal

my list...

 

- realizing you've been up for three days straight on shroomz, powder, ecstacy, and hard liquor... and THEN realizing that "this is why I can't hang out with you guys!", and laughing with your hood friends till reality sets in, and realizing you have a better life now and shouldn't do that shit any more. :burn:

 

- 50 cent noodles

 

- popcorn (its cheap AND odd enough, filling!)

 

- Old English 800's being re-introduced to Vancouver cold beer and wine stores a few years ago, and being really exited bout it.

 

- Wearing your lokes whenever you god damn feel like it (night included)

 

- The stress of knowing the only thing that will ever make you truely happy is dedicating yourself to the true writer lifestyle, and at the same time acknowledging that you love money... for better or worse. One day.

 

- Knowing your student loan is large and that you have commited yourself as much to grafitti as to success in your professional life, so deal with it.

 

- Never settling on a name, even after years of praise. (maybe just stupid.)

 

- Accepting lond distance charges for the man in lockdown, even though its $1.50 a fucking minute.

 

- Getting busted being ballsy in front of a plain clothed officer with a pilot silver broad.

 

- Walking through a crowd of dodgey cats straight faced holding your own, then getting through and breathing that sigh of releif.

 

- Being the only positive "get out of your shitty situation cat" in your clique. And always getting booed for it.

 

- Telling your girl you aint gonna drink, then as soon as she gone slippin out to grab the OE, even though you love her so much. (being a closet alcoholic / boozehound)

 

- Hitting the streets in the hopes that one day you will meet an experienced bomber in your area who has been down the same road as you, and inspires you to BOMB, not just get high like your old school friends.

 

- Knowing you are fully devoted to grafitti for better or worse, and may never meet another writer who isnt stuck on some negative bullshit.

 

 

 

... thats it. Seems this was the best place to vent. Cool. Thanks for listening. Peace.

 

<<Religion>>

Whenever I'm in the cuts, crackheads always ask me for change.

 

When I say no, they ask me for a cigarette.

 

When I give them one, they ask me for another one "for later."

 

I'm always down to give a bum a smoke if he's friendly, but two? Come on now.

 

Another thing I've noticed is that a lot of black bums specifically have the gift of gab...they will chat you up and somehow get you involved in some ridiculous/almost charming conversation. White bums just don't have mouth-piece.

-not getting hassled for getting up

 

The best one. You can drop a tag or even a throw-up in the hood in broad daylight and a lot of cats won't care. Try it in the nice prissy white areas and the heroe civilians with the cellphones pop out of nowhere and people look at you and ridicule you like you just murdered somebody.

i only drop tags in the hood. If you get rolled in the suburbs its like 10 X as bad and even if you get away it gets the instabuff

- dudes that are about 16 or 18 riding little tiny boy and girl bikes before they came out with lowrider bikes

 

- dudes on their front porch just waiting for something to happen. you better know these cats if you're walking by yourself otherwise they gonna start some shit or ask you questions

 

- oh yeah and back in the day when you didn't have no money as a kid/teen, you'd go to the taco bells or burger kings and just ask for some fries and a water. or one taco and a water. then go to the soda fountain and fill the small water cup with pepsi or fanta grape and shit.

 

- oh yeah and wearing pro-wings or xj-900's and getting clowned hard.
