Dear Mission Mission, please stop giving kkkatie face time on your blog. Nobody really cares about her that much, if at all. I’m sure she gets a big kick when she comes on here and finds articles about herself. If I see another kkkatie article I will have to cancel my subscription.
You’re probably right, I may be living in the wrong neighborhood, but, graffiti art and murals making the Mission “great” is more opinion than fact. I don’t really “hate” murals, I just find them chaotic. My opinion.
Y’think? Is meth a defining characteristic of Tulsa? I haven’t been there in a few years, but last time I was there I certainly didn’t notice any more tweakers-per-capita than any other medium-sized city.
I kissed Katie once at Delirium sometime in 2008, she and I met at my work where I made coffee and stuff, she asked me if I’d like to go get coffee sometime. She comes from a heavily christian family and has about as much personality as sink drain. I don’t like taggers, most of the taggers I have met are quite boring copies of each other, with self absorbed out-looks on life.
Yeah, I don’t get why this blog gives taggers so much air time. And they always post the weakest shit. If you’re going to post this crap, at least *try* and develop an eye for it. Honestly, most of the stuff you see in the Mission these days is stupid suburban art school kids who have no clue/skills. The late 80s-early 90s era is long gone.
Yes the Phunk is gone found now only on the DREAM wall and in photos of Pyscho City and the old Duboce Tunnels (other places too but those are the few off the top of my head i can think of). Progression is key and bombing is harder than ever so of course style is going to adapt and evolve.
and since when does being from the suburbs have to do with being able to do graffiti? The best freight painters are from the sticks
Well, I guess my point is that there’s a difference between a real writer vs. some new jack hipster from upper class Orange County who goes to art school in SF and tags for “cred”. I mean, are there even any real writers left in SF? It’s not like you see anything even approaching the worst MSK writer from LA circa ’91 here. Not these days. Even Chaka has a leg up on these fools.
lets be real, do you see any crews approaching what MSK AWR has done in the past or present as writers and artists? No.
And yes there are real writers left, you obviously just dont know them.
And once again, being from a well-off family whether Orange County, LA, or the East Bay, has nothing to do with your skill as a writer.
Keep on dreaming, alla you guys, that any of the Mission people who have been here for a generation or more give a fuck what you write, or how you write it, or where you write it. We don’t. It’s all instantly forgettable, and instantly erasable. We note it long enough to delete it from our walls. And our memories, too. We don’t care about its history, and couldn’t reference it if you asked us to. To us, it is the shit we have to deal with because we live in a city filled with the under-observed, over-grown, latch-key children of newly-urban hillbillies.
