Schnitzel

Midsummer madness in the USA (aka schnitzel's lazy arse finally got his photos) up!

Recommended Posts

Well earlier this year I appeared to have a bit too much money despite having lost my job..

So I bought a really cheap airfare to the United States of America in order to look at some graff , hopefully catch up with some Oontzer’s and generally have an all round somewhat drunken country line dancin’ good time!

Figured since it was summer California was in order as well as some of the northen cities on the east coast so here are some pics.

Last time I was here I was with my bird and it was no fun tryiong to be impressed with shopping while dying to go paint so not painting wasn’t an option this time so it was planned for graff hiking drinking preferably chasing cute younger cougars round a TGI Fridays somewhere where they still think Aussie accents are sexy.

Special Thanks to :

Team USA

INKFACE, POSTMAN, SUKI, CALIgula, MILK GRENADES, 1988, 2501, SPECTR

Team Canada,

STAN51, A CORNEY LOOKING WHITE BOY,

 

Non Oontzers: Ariel, The guys from Suki’s place, Lance and Stacey, KIlla EF, and Stan’s whole crew. The kids in boston who took me out, Bahara and Andrew in new york, beautiful swiss girl who wouldn’t fuck me in central park.

Flight fron Sydney uneventful thanks to some extra strong painkillers my sister brought back from Thailand so after a mandatory cig break at SFO I was off into town by cab

hit the hostel at Mason and O’farrel only a second storey room so I could hear everything going on….. seriously

DSC00111.jpg

the sign which I liked for it’s 50’s charm.

I couldn’t check into the hotel so I kicked about a little bit ate burger king at the cable car stop and watched crazies yell at people. Went on the hunt for paint which took me miles up to Dick Blick before the guy there pointed 1 am gallery/shop out to me which was handy for me

headed down to 1 am but it was closed so took a few graff snaps (was still pretty peeked on all the bums at this stage.

Saw these stylish handstyles on the way

saw Alloy and Ikso

DSC00030.jpg

got shafted over dinner the guidebooks all say “get the waiter to recommend you something if you don’t know all the food is great” The waiter decided I was an Australian dog so he got me a plate of pedigree chum with pineapple chunks it was fucking rancid. The two aussie girls next to me got hooked up though.

Walking back to bed

the streetcars were so cool

headed out to lake merritt to meet a friend who is involved in graff.

I wanted to go down to san leandro tracks but she said it was alittle hectic down there at the moment so we didn’t wnet back to her place and checked her black books.

DSC00098-1.jpg

dropped this in the back of the weakest one because she had so many big names in her books after living in new york most of her life!

Then she drove me down to lake merit where I made the pleasing discovery that college girls sometimes do where that awesome short shorts long socks combo while exercising (no photos but you know exactly what I mean)

Then headed into downtown to go to bastille day celebrations which weren’t really all that French considering they were:

In an English bar

On the edge of Chinatown

In san Francisco America,

DSC00101.jpg

At least they knew how to have a good time and with the aid of two French chicks from my hostel and French flag we made a lot of friends.Photos end here because I got too drunk and on way home walked past my hostel deep into the tenderloin which was not where I should have been walking with my Ipod on.

woke up next day stressing about nightmares of being poked and grumbling that my bed wasn’t comfy to discover I’d slept in my clothes and tipped these in my bed.

DSC00110.jpg

swept them out and slept till 1 in the afternoon then failed hard on MOMA (it was closed) the comic centre (spotted my camera so No pics) Amtrak ( the chick was pretty fucking useless) A comic book shop (what I wanted wasn’t yet out). So only four photos from this day

DSC00108.jpg

DSC00107.jpg

DSC00106.jpg

wanted to jump in this because I was hungover and it was hot but figured it wouldn’t go down well

DSC00102.jpg

so headed to the liquor store to get an eye opener then went to in’n’out burger then more beers.

Then we went for Pizzas at JJ’s a place that will always be special to me for two reasons

1) I was introduced to pizza dipped in ranch ressing

2) while outside having a smoke with Inkface I called nigger about 6 times in 30 seconds by an African American gentleman asking whether the shop sold pizza (big sign on roof might have been a giveaway)

“YO NIgguh They Sell Pie here nigguh? Good pie here nigguh? YO I KNOO I COULD SMELL PIE NIGGUH……….etc etc

AGAIN ALL PICS BY SUKI
