Aspiring to what? Watercolors in Baltimore? I mean, if you cause $10,000 in damage with a spray can I'd at least hope you'd drop the "aspiring" and just call yourself an artist. But who the f*ck am I to try and make sense out of anything from The City of Brotherly Shove?

I guess aspiring arts are regular artists who don't get paid to work?

The irony is that artists get paid to create art but her so-called-art is called damages and makes property lose value.

That's some serious Doing-it-wrong right there.

No, but looking down at women's misfortune is. She isn't unemployed, by the way. She's working on her art. She probably
is just currently in between paid projects.

Why are the police jumping to such conclusions? Just because two artists may use the same tag for themselves, doesn't mean they are the same.

Perhaps it is time we start a national registry for artist designations. We need to prevent this kind of confusion from happening again.

One man's damage is another man's art. Instead of punishing her to return the property back to its prior state, the owners should be forced to pay her for her work in modernizing their land. She is just working to improve the city she is in. Local community service like that needs to be rewarded and channeled, not criticized.

Boobies I read was a defense of Twitter and a claim that it would lead to the demise of journalism. Or something.

Point is, damn, people, start out with a little subtlety. Otherwise you just stick out like a sore thumb and you won't get any bites.

You're absolutely right, and when an artist decides that the spraypaint on my private property is art, I'm going to decide that the newly formed dent in the artist's head is my art. Think of it as constitutionally protected free speech.

Someone needs reading comprehension skills. Twitter is the next generation of journalism. From the newspapers came the internet. From the internet came the blogosphere. Now from the blogosphere comes the twitter generation. That is the future of journalism. Twitter is the phoenix to rise from the ashes of the print journalists. They are the future Edward R. Murrows of our world.

I remember an episode of the Dave Attell Show in Portland, OR where he asked a girl on the street, "Who are you?". Her reply was "I'm a Visionary. I see things."

Just what did you see chicky?

There is a huge difference between Tagging and Graffiti.

Im a huge supporter of local street art, which is technically "graffiti" . The creative ways people around the world find to get true pieces of art out there never cease to amaze me.

Just google "Melbourne graffiti" and tell me you dont see real talent.
 
2008-11-28 03:25:32 AM
Tagging is on the level of a dog marking its territory. Except your dog is smarter.

Yep. She knows what it takes to be a successful artist: stealing other people's ideas.

Hehehe. I work with the 17 year old boy's mother. She was telling us about this on Wednesday and having a good laugh. Not too surprisingly he's a moron and gets in trouble for dumb stuff like this all the time. He just got out of some kind of juvie home a few weeks ago and will apparently be going back.

Sure. Graffiti can be considered art. In the same way that miming is art.

Much like the world abhors a mime, the world abhors a douche-nozzle that destroys private property, (and taxpayer owned property), with some spray paint.

If I walked into your home with a bucket of blood and dumped it on your living room floor while calling it art, should that be nurtured? If I stood on your porch and pretended that I was tugging on an invisible rope, should that be nurtured? If I spray painted a bunch of silly nonsense on the wall of the local gas station, should that be nurtured? Where's the limit? My talent?

Ugh. Tired and angry at people who find destruction of property acceptable just because its frowned upon by the masses.

2008-11-28 09:13:40 AM
A traditional (*cough*real*cough*) artist owns the medium in which he works, be it canvas, stone, metals. Or, he's been commissioned by its owner. If a gas station says, "Hey, people are going to graffiti my building. Let's put something there that they might want to leave alone..." Great! There's your art.

When some dumbass assumes it's art, they're usually wrong.

It's still the internet. You're simply pointing out different applications of it. A better comparison would be the New York times spawning it's weekend glossy magazine.

Furthermore, you're attempting to compare a broadcast journalist to twitterers.(who are digital print "journalists") If anything, these people are the new Geraldo Rivieras of the world. I.F. Stone is not impressed.

I've yet to see a defense for graffiti apart from vague notions of 'freedom of expression'. As though that trumps property rights. But I've never seen anyone come up with a defense for it that doesn't rest entirely on that dubious claim.

I'm not automatically against 'good' graffiti that has been well-planned and executed and where there's a significant level of skill involved, but tagging annoys the hell out of me.

What annoys me even more is the claim that it's done by 'voiceless' city kids who have no other outlet. Bullshiat. I've seen them in action - spoilt brat suburban kids who think they're being hip and 'urban' but deep-down have the same suburban prejudice against downtown areas that it's okay to vandalize there.

I like this idea though:

Anyone who equates graffiti with legitimate art doesn't own property that's ever been vandalized.

And my husband and I are going down the list of people we've met at his shows, since the drummer in his band lives near Norristown and would be very likely to associate with the type of dope that vandalizes property and can't spell the word "deviant."
