Been vibing nostalgic of late, which is tough for me cause I don't actually dig to much on nostalgic thought dusting off the past through rose colored glasses just seems so eh anyway I don't know just never was one to get too caught up in that trip I'm a loyal friend and have lots of peeps i can sit about with and talk about that type of stuff but we're usually to busy thinking about the now, but after watching this clip the other night a wave washed over me.
I was really really Lucky when i was pup over all I feel real fortunate to have walked in my shoes in this life meeting and knowing the people I know and have known has been a treat some
The below clip speaks for it self. Graffiti is/was nothing new to me, growing up all my friends did it and i mean ALL. I did not participate as I wasn't very good at it and back then you had better be able to rock a font with style and grace or the ridicule would be harsh and endless.
Luckily enough for me several of my friends were some of the original big guns of Graff not necessarily the first seeds but the cats who took it to the next level, above tagging your name or nickname with or without your street or building number under it plus arrows and crowns etc... or quickly splattering some Krylon or Rust O on a wall or those harsh and ugly gray trains.
No these kids planned carefully tip toed in and really turn on the city .... man to see a Technicolor subway car roll into a station was like the ending scene in Pleasantville really it was, and having the cool factor of knowing the unknown was well real cool and hell they knew me too so that was cool for them as well truthfully there was so much going on for us during our youth having the run of New York City as our playground was an incredibly good time....
I sincerely hope today's kids are having as much or even more fun as we did anyway here's the clip that got me thinking of all this [there's a prize if you spot the brother] here's a link just in case the video doesn't play In the next post I'll say more
