Lush is fucking ridiculous. Epic win.
On Monday, I posted about a graffiti artist who was killed by an oncoming D train @ 59th street station in Brooklyn. If you’re a foamer, you’re probably thinking ‘The D doesn’t run there’, and if you’re a hardcore foamer, you know there was a service diversion that night, with the D running northbound on the N route. This little detail might have been what cost this man his life.
Very little was said in the news about the particulars of what happened, or who this graffiti writer was. We now know his tag name was Jan. I never met him, but he was about to rent some art studio space from an artist friend of mine. Had he lived a bit longer, I’d likely have met him and perhaps gone on a few adventures with him in the coming weeks. I haven’t seen any of his art myself, so I can’t give an opinion on his talent. From what I can gather though, this was an ambitious fellow who … [ read more ]
LOS ANGELES — Walk into the Museum of Contemporary Art here and urban graffiti — scrawled on walls, buses, a subway car and behind glass — is being celebrated by this city’s art lovers in a hugely popular show. Walk a block away and the same sort of scrawling could get you thrown in jail.
The Police Hard On over graffiti has always been rather obscure to me. Politically pointless really. When you outlaw art and create dull cityscapes devoid of creativity, brain muscles atrophy. Lack of simulation creates a mass of boring, orderly, predictable people who will never innovate their way out of the current issues facing humanity.
Sure does take a hot girl to make that old ass F5 throwy worth looking at!
I have no idea who took this photo, or where. I’m not really surprised though. That F5 a-hole sure did get up all over before moving back to the Ukraine.
Holds 8 spraycans in a fully lined faux-fur front compartment.As well as outside hidden Skateboard Straps
On the inside compartment: Holds an additional 2 spraycans, compartments for your tips & markers, as well as laptop compartment (measurements 11″ x 18″).
I don’t get the laptop compartment part – unless you’re aiming to upload photos online immediately after you do your thing… you still need a good camera though, and there doesn’t sound like there’s a pocket for that.
Some of the can slots can easily be used to hold beer though, so maybe these things even out?
At first I thought this was a joke, but they have systematically bombed these new large C&D trash cars that run out of Fresh Pond on CSX.
There are Billy and Bobby fill ins that look civilian, but they put up Iz The Wiz, and Pray (notorious sharpie tagger in the NYC Subway System). If there were just one or two cars like this I’d say maybe it’s a joke – but there’s at least a dozen of them, and they’re not too drippy.
The cars are owned by ‘Sunny Farms LLC’ – a mild mystery in and of itself – wtf kind of name is that for a company hauling construction rubbish?
“It was filmed in the deep tunnels of the New York Subway system.”
C’mon! Are you fucking shitting me? This is a very well known AMTRAK tunnel that is VERY ACCESSIBLE. It’s not even deep underground – it’s basically in the basement of a building.
There’s no reason to lie about this. The general public won’t know the difference and still think it’s a badass video.
I really, really hate when people try to play off things as being more hardcore than they are. I know this whole ‘ue’ thing is oh so cool now, but please, trying to fake the fuck is bad form no matter what game you’re playing. At least get the girl to loose some clothes if you’re gunna put this out there…
I’m not even going to get into the Krylon, yellow no less. I could piss on the wall and … [ read more ]
Entering the tunnels is hazardous to your death. Look for the hardcore ridiculous subway recidivism book a decade in the making.
Never seen before content. Approx 150-170 pages. Tunnels, abandoned stations, spaces you’ve never even heard of, hobos and transit recidivists surfing subways, tagging walls, and farting on your ex.
Creeps to the surface this summer, via LTV Press, DIY, the way it should be.
It’s not just a book, it’s a fucking lifestyle.
