I just spent 30 minutes on a bus staring at a wall;
someone wrote in Japanese, English, French
“drift away.”
This is true.
(I editted out the last line after a few suggestions that it wasn't needed.)

Daily Deviation

Given 2007-08-14
P.C.Preaching by ~bristoltheorange is more than just a slice of life - it lays on your tongue for a while, asking if you might counter its flavor. ( Suggested by PinkyMcCoversong and Featured by StJoan )

I think it's Daily Deviation or something. Someone liked it enough to feature it. I'm glad you like it. Over the years I've seen some impressive examples of graffiti and my own little ways of rebelling just by changing already existing things. I don't really condone crappy tags though. Have you heard of an artist named Banksy? He's one of the best examples of graffiti as art.

heard of, haven't seen his work
i'm not really an avid follower, but i know a few things, and some of the best peices of art in public are graffiti murals. it's a lost art form and i'm blessed to know a few artists
i'm still not sure why it's bad that you were featured

I'm not a big fan of murals simply because they're approved by some sort of authority, which fundamentally opposes some of the ideals of graffiti. I don't know, I guess I can see both sides of the argument.
I didn't say it was bad I was featured. What gave you that idea?

no, the other comment, that he was quitting the site because you were featured
only one of the murals i know of was approved.
two were paid for.
one was about to be painted over, and a whole region of the city protested against the council to keep it there, in memorial for the artist' brother. it's beautiful and i'm glad it's there, but we still have to fight every year for it's place

Ah. Interesting. Where I live there's a bunch of shotty approved for murals and given the choice between those and blank walls I'd go for blank walls. They're that bad.

Look, if you're not going to say anything useful in terms of criticism then why bother?
