R.I.P. Saber's L.A. river piece..

Recommended Posts

I know, I know...no graffiti on channel zero, but im curious to know what you guys think about them spending the money to buff this, when california is obviously in debt.

waste of taxpayers money. gross waste. doesn't L.A have more important things to pool its money into? i mean its not like they have a reputation for gang capital of the country or anything.

sad but shit happens.

I saw it from the the plane flying into LAX two years ago so I'll count myself as lucky.

it was practically faded away but what's super annoying is that it looks like they didn't do it properly

he needs a fire extinguisher and a barrel of black paint to redress this issue.

yeah..theres so many other things they could have spent the money on, it just seems stupid to buff it.

 

do you guys think they will buff that huge mta too?

they are already buffing the MTA. thats why i thought it was weird they were buffing the saber piece as well. especially some museum in LA got saber to do some piece on their reconstruction of the river.

Stay up Big SAB!"

 

 

graffiti being cleaned is being compared to michael jackson dying. seriously.

its not like he didn't get his props for anything. but i think in this situation he's the only one who can be super upset about it.

 

i'm stuck on how they justify spending that much on the buff, regardless what its over.

whoever quoted 3 million to do the job is out they fucking mind. And who sees that hookup anyways. Its massive but pretty much out of the view of the public. Im gonna guess most of who sees it is people trying to see it

Honestly besides labor and materials what other costs would they have? what type of buff paint are they using? how much are they paying these guys?!
