just wanted to share some of the photos i took of graffiti and other public art in the urban areas from my first trip to Chile and Argentina - if you are curious about what street art down that way looks like, you have come to the right place ::photogenic::

Those are cool but none of that is graffiti.

I 100% disagree. There's more than one form of graffiti, it isn't just fucked off writing on a wall. There's graffiti handstyles which is the writing and there's graffiti murals, the big art. There's graffiti throw ups which are more or less something in between the two. There's probably other types to add to that list as well.

Im not very flexible when it comes to what someone calls graffiti. If its not letters its not graffiti. Hell I dont even refer to legal walls as graffiti. Gotta be illegal. Most civilians see spray paint and call it graffiti. Nope. No sir. Im not here to argue about graffiti though haha. Rip 12oz.

Yeah I go back to 12 oz prophet days too. In fact I was arrested for graffiti in 1994 in the same railyard that I was later hired at. We definitely don't have to argue, we can agree to disagree. I'll stick to the actual definition of graffiti and you can stick to the definition you yourself have created for it.

My man Train in vain didnt make up that definition....you'll find that the original writers in NYC and Philly always did and still do refer to themselves as writers and writing includes tags,throwies and piecing - all letter based.

Graffiti was a term given to it by the media.Look up what the godfather of writing Phase too has to say on the matter.


Of course we're all free to go with whatever definition we wish but i'm going with the what i've learned from the original's of writing and not the media.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $10.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
