THE NEXT FREIGHT BOOK

Recommended Posts

I've been compiling a list of writers who were not included in the first freight book

(FREIGHT TRAIN GRAFFITI) and who I believe should be included in the next one to be compiled. I think the authors did a very nice job with the first book, everyone they focused on in there certainly deserved it, I've been enjoying it since it's arrival and consider it worth the money for sure. There were/are many other writers out there who were putting in a lot of work back in the 90's and definitely deserve to be mentioned and spotlighted. Some were only doing tags, some pieces, some everything, but they were all out there at a time when one could not just blend in with the numerous other pieces on the line. When they hit a layup their work stood out like a sore thumb to the workers, bulls, etc, and they felt the heat. Their consistent dedication has made our culture the vibrant and exciting movement that it is today. The world's most massive rolling art show, by the people, for the people, uncontrolled, incredible.

I know there are more I'm leaving out, these are in no particular order, and will add more as time goes by. Please contribute to this list and maybe it can be somewhat of a reference guide for whoever is going to step up next to make an attempt at documenting the history of our culture.

Do we really need a book? What's the point of wasting your money on a dumb physical object that takes up space next to all your other useless crap?

 

If you want to look at flicks, look at the forum. If you want to know who held down the Midwest in 94 nigga, ask your friends. Unless it has stories about how Snafu bought a 12 year old sex slave from Bulgaria or something, with pictures of course.

This seems like a dumb thread- let's make a (subjective) list of names of who got left out so that someone who may be doing part 2 might happen to look here and pick up the list. And look at some of the names getting listed....

more like one or two, unless you count 99 as "the 90's"

everyone just wants them and their homies in a book

so that they can somehow feel important and justified

I think if you paint trains and they get caught why should they not go in a book? Really isnt it just all about the documentation at that point? And if you were to make a book on it, shouldnt you have an unbiased view on it?

And if you are looking at it with a biased view, it should be titled something like "(apply your name) favorite trains book"....my two cents.
