Giant Clown Shoe: Active buffer here.

I don't cover street art unless asked to by the property owner.  I do cover tags of every kind on all types of public property.  I always use as close to the the color paint that was originally defaced as possible (the silver buff is an example of an attention whore vandal just like the taggers he purportedly battles) and don't hesitate spending $50-$80 a night on high quality Krylon. F the vandals.  And I don't sneak around.  Three of us pull up and openly cover... sometimes it takes 15-20 minutes to take care of an entire intersection.  Police and neighbors praise us.  And w/ cc a matter of months away it won't just be a couple of aggressive looking dogs and 17% OC pepper gel for any shiatbird that has a problem with it.

We currently don't cover wheat pasting.  Unfortunately someone told me gang members are wheat pasting tags amid the art in certain communities.  If this is true I'll cover that shiat too.

/by the way to any Chicago vandals, your boy "werm" got what he deserved.  Hope you get it next.


Wow you're a regular Frank Castle.

Giant Clown Shoe: Also, almost forgot... fark Banksy.

Hope I get a chance to give him a tattoo while he's taking an roofie/ ether nap.  He's a criminal.

We've been compiling addresses of Chicago taggers w/ the help of a few cops.  We're going to deface their homes on Halloween...  "A TAGGER LIVES HERE" on the garages, doors and cars of the vandals.

Homeowners would only get pissed if he painted something on their property that they couldn't chisel off and sell.  It's like the SAMO/Basquait graffiti on the Lower East Side, you would see people biatching but only in the sense of "Got dammit why couldn't he have tagged this a few feet to the left on this door, you know the one with removable hinges."

Yes that's why there is poor quality scribble and websites ranking different shiatbirds as "all-city" because it makes property owners mad.  Are you serious?  These are scared little weasels, unable to assert themselves in any way in the daylight so they crawl through alleys at night and mark like a dog.  Then they come back and take pictures like an arsonist at their fire.  They then post it online for the accolades of their subculture peers.  They don't care about me or my property.  And they never will... until one gets shot in one of my alleys.  That would be a farking shame.

This is sh*t and you should be able to legally shoot the dickwads as long as you can videotape them in the act:

Giant Clown Shoe: Noticeably F.A.T.: , I'm just wondering how he's going to spin his troll as I don't believe any part of his story.

So I just happen to know the tag of a guy who fell to his death this summer?  I have no vested interest?  I know what buffing is and know that the silver buff in Portland is a dick and an attention whore?  And I'm taking this position here for what? For fun?  Which part is a lie?  The property?  The buffing?  The being furious? 

And I'm not a moral crusader.  I'm a guy who is sick as fark of cleaning my properties and my neighborhood and I'm not alone.  So not alone that several other property owners and I buff (it took one of the younger guys to clue me into that term and a movie on netflix where the taggers try to paint the "buffers" as the bad guys).  And there are cops that live in my neighborhood who are also sick of the rampant tagging and have given us the addresses of several prolific taggers.  I'm not claiming any moral high ground... fark that.  I'm ready to get in the farking gutter.  Have you ever tried to remove what remains of spray paint from brick after the city sand blasts it?  It's virtually impossible. It takes hours and hours and hours and a faint outline still remains.

I'm going to ensure the families of these farks get to find out first hand how hard it is to clean, how expensive it is to clean, what a pain in the ass it is to clean and most importantly all their neighbors will know their sons are the ones ruining the neighborhood... renters are off the list.  shiatbirds who live with their parents are going to wake up to a farking mess.

I don't give a rat's ass if what I'm doing is "right".  I'm done going to CAPS meetings and asking the alderman for help.  I'm taking it out on these little farks every chance I get.  They've cost me a small fortune and hundreds of hours of cleaning.  And I hope they all fall.  I'm deadly serious.

Inchoate: God damn, you not only actually think people deserve DEATH for spray-painting walls, you're downright gleeful about it.


It isn't the spray painting.  Spray paint away, Live it up. Get an MFA and express yourself!

Stay the fark away from my property.  Stay the fark away from the parks and the signs and the mailboxes and the bus stops in my community.  Your expression with your spray paint and your paint markers create an environment where property value falls and people are afraid to use areas of the city that are theirs because the average mom with a stroller doesn't know the difference between some cock's scribble and a gang claiming their alley.  We pay the property taxes.  We clean up the parkways and the alleys and the "artists" take it from us.  They take our money and our time and our neighborhoods.

So spray paint anything you legally own.  Anything else and  I hope you fall to your death.

Cumulative hatred... more than a decade. fark every one of them.

What on earth do you think that would accomplish?

I dunno, but tagging tagger's houses with bad graffiti is a fun idea.


Well, sure. I'm just a little curious as to how a person manages to compartmentalize their thoughts enough to not be suffering acute cognitive dissonance from simutaniously thinking "Vandalism is the worst crime ever, enough that I feel the need to patrol the streets as the Krylon Krusader" and "I'mma fark these guys' houses up". Unless of course he's just thinking that breaking the law for some straight-up revenge (not justice, though I'm sure he's thinking that's what it is) is A-Ok, but then that doesn't jive with the apparent attempt to convince everyone that he's some sort of moral crusader. How do you claim that breaking the law is never ok, then brag about your plans to break the law?

ArcadianRefugee: His art was an advert for him.


His art is not an advert for him, it's an advert for his ideas, like all art.  And he has interesting ideas that make people think about the world differently, the best kind of art.

He's well aware it's illegal, and no one is disputing that he should be tried for his crimes if he's caught.  But that doesn't mean we're going to root for the authorities trying to catch him.  Most people these days would be thrilled to have his art on their building, and it would probably raise the value.  If the city wiped a Banksy off my building I would sue them for vandalism.

We get it, you don't like art or beauty or people who go beyond cultural norms to make a point and have an impact.  I'm sure you make a fine accountant and bore your wife to death.

Whatever dude.

And every one of those should have been sprayed over with random squiggles and bathroom-wall insults. After all, like Banksy himself said, "Any advert in a public space that gives you no choice whether you see it or not is yours. It's yours to take, re-arrange and re-use. You can do whatever you like with it. Asking for permission is like asking to keep a rock someone just threw at your head."

His art was an advert for him.

fark Banksy.

nipner: I'm laughing at all the anti-Banksy comments on here. Have you ever been to NYC?? It's riddled with gang graffiti and piss.

Which are also wrong and efforts to get rid of them should also be conducted. Just like with Banksy's graffiti.

nipner: Where's Bloomdouche's outrage at all of the other gang tagging that goes on every day and night?

Oh. I had forgotten that NYC had legalized such vandalism and is no longer attempting to prosecute those who do it or clean up their efforts. Got it.

Same here. I like his work, I just don't like the fact that he defaces property that doesn't belong to him. Paint your own property, or put that shiat on a canvas.

You honestly think his work is defacement?

I do. Because it's unsolicited. Banksy doesn't know how other people want their property decorated, and his assumption that everyone should accept how HE want THEIR property to look is a bit misguided. With that said, I do think he's incredibly talented. I just don't think it's right to put his artwork on other people's property...regardless of how pretty his paintings are.
