A friend of mine in the Oakland area took me to a place I call the ‘graffiti gallery’ the other day, so I made sure to bring along my camera and see what I could capture. What came out of it was a pretty neat photo set of people in our crew working on various pieces, and you can see what a neat hidden treasure this place is, especially when the sunlight is filtering in through the cracks, as you’ll see in the pics below.

Holy shit, is this right next to the old Southern Pacific station? I saw some candles in the doorway and thought it was just a homebum camp!

    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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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.

    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.
