i think i would have to agree with you on those five points, especially the fr8 thing.... im not to sure about the metal/punk thing i have always kinda done that but thats the music i listen to. i suppose trends can change from place to place, in my case where i come from many toys added "oe" or "h" to their names coming up with retarded names like "goest".. and so on...

i would like to add another trend....."monikers", seems like everyone has got to have one.

these are all pretty right on.

heres mine

1 lts steez............those dudes were ahead of the game (although i have seen some old kept stuff that was pretty amorphic/complicated/tangle looking)

2 biting european 3d and highlight techniques (remembe when we thought european graff looked so weird?)

3 (on the west coast) weird throwups....... even though they are still decades behind some of nyc's avant garde throws.

4 making a crappy zine, poorly laid out, poorly scanned, of pictures youve seen printed well in the glossies.

5 god damn ticks in the 3d's and god damn inner outlines on everything. STOP DOInG THIS! start using more contrasting colors and youll find you dont need that white inner border to make your crappy straight letters or shitty l.a. looking crap make sense.

 

bitter.....

I stand by my original current trends, although the following are pretty acurate:

 

-emo looking writers, la style, old paint, makeshift patroits, whole car auto racks, cheap internet fame

All true, although a whole car of anykind gets thumbs up, trend or not.

 

-stock-cap 3D legal pieces, with anti-internet themes

This is just plain funny.

 

As far as inlines go; this is a struggle that's been raging since the first "flat white inliner" laid the groundwork for a generation of disgruntled, color-scheme-impaired writers to come. No more inlines .. vote no on 37!

are you calling goest a toy??.....just wanting to be clear that your not...cause anyone who knows the calgary scene knows goest is fucking good....and alot of people have retarded names...maybe that was the purpose of them having those names....just for the hell of it...see some people dont care what other people think of them...and they prove how good they are by their peicing and not there choice in names...

 

 

..and just so everyone knows...iam not starting any beefs or bitching or anything......its sad that i actually have to make that clear..

EXACTLY! You missed the most crucial downside of graffiti...... graff on the web has seriously damaged this culture, and I see so many kids walkin round thinkin they the shit taggin walls....... There was a time when graffiti could only be seen in the rough inner-city neighborhoods..... a place these suburban rich kids would never tread through because they thought it was "dirty" and "for the lower-class"...... now they hop on the internet, get pissed at their parents and start paintin walls with names like "Serv" and shit....... they talk shit, paint everyday for a couple months, then they fall off like 90% of toys..... I on the other hand am in this game until someone rips my arms off....... and even then im gonna practice can control with my feet... :D

a contrario, if there wasnt the net people would still be doing the same "regional style" over and over again.

But i agree that internet may have took away a bit of original flavor.
