While looking around the internet for responses to the tragic death of Camu Tao. I came across this on the War 42 site:
It’s armed soldiers getting up in Iraq. Thats your Tax dollars at work. While I am against the war, I do support our troops.
What’s even weirder is that the soldier shouted out Texas PBJ/IOK/BK member, Bryer who painted on this years’ Daymon Day Wall, as well as the Industry Standard Wall. Click for more photos’ of US soldiers painting graffiti in Iraq.
WAR 42 is a DVD series that showcases graffiti intertwined with clips of really disturbing behavior like home footage of naked strippers smoking meth out of broken lightbulbs.
I spent a portion of my weekend posted up here while some writers got busy. The funniest thing I heard was a group of black skater kids clowning bystanders that felt the wall should’ve had a political statement written on it. The skater kids started requesting that the phrase, “The NAACP Has Banned the Word N—–A”.(Imagine that spelled out on a wall on High Street without my censoring). When the writers didn’t oblige, then one kid started lobbying for just the nword. As you can see,the writers didn’t do it. The writers were painting the spot for a new boutique that is opening in that location called Industry Standard. The shop owners requested angels not racial epitaphs. So maybe the artists thought it would’nt be a good look. At least it drove off all the unsolicited “no blood for oil” requests.
