The skill set, learned or inborn?

Recommended Posts

So I didn't bother searching for an old thread asking this question. I know I'm a fucking retard, and this has probably been brought up before, but... This is a serious question, I'm not trying to be cute or funny.

 

What skills or abilities have you gained from Graff that you apply on the rest of your life?

 

Examples:

 

Cops...

My "spider senses" when it comes to cops is almost supernatural: I'll be driving 100mph down the freeway get "the tingle" and back off the gas and sure as shit there is a speed trap on the next exit.

 

I can smell a set-up: I'll be walking in to a yard and I will get "the tingle". So I bounce and head to another spot, passing on ARMN flats for hoppers. Only to hear that the other spot got rolled on.

 

scamming ...

I can spot a scam or a hustle, like a mile away: Watched a kid hustle two new phones and batteries from "a large nationwide wireless service provider" (my girl was getting a new phone) not once but twice in like 15 min's w/ the same broke ass phone. As an educated observer, his game was pretty weak too.

 

So in short, it's the nature VS. nurture question. Is it that people with these skills/abilities are attracted to graff, or is it that all these things are learned with "the graff life" and all that come with it?

 

And for all of you may say "cool story br0" or too long did not read.... JUGS\/\/\/

walking on the street all day really exposes you to the reality of the world..graffiti writers learn a lot about the human condition and all the bull shit that goes on behind closed doors that most never come to understand. The homeless, the rich, the dying, the insane..everything is exposed on the streets..

Interesgting thread, i think it has to do with both. Really graffiti takes a certain kind of mentality to want to go out and ruin and destroy public property, which is not for your average everyday joe, and naturally some of the same thought processes and personalities go along with that mentality. But at the same time i think you pick up on a lot of "street smarts" from going out and experiencing and adventuring.

i was always drawn for or a part of "mischievous" activities

 

skateboarding lead to punk rock

punk rock lead me to art

art lead me into new friends

new friends lead me into partying and drugs and other criminal shit

 

all of the above made me into a writer.

and i couldn't ask for anything more.
