BANKSY VS ROBO 12. 28. 09

Dez found this story on the UpperPlayground blog:

Anybody who has ever done graffiti quickly learns to appreciate the value of a “LANDMARK” -that is, the struggle to get your work to last anywhere in the street. Here in LA if you can get something to run for more than a month it is a achievement worthy of celebration. In London it is possibly more so since the buff is vigilant and very well-funded. One of the “Golden rules” in graffiti is to respect your elders; foremost by not going over them… Particularly in the extremely rare scenario where something has lasted nearly 3 decades(the graffiti equivalent to a UFO sighting) -I would assume Banksy would be aware of this rule, and respect it considering his roots lie in traditional graffiti… Apparently not.

I first came across this story via 12ozPROPHETS twitter, courtesy of MARE139’s blog on 12oz… It seems the story has been removed from thar site for some reason. Thats why i am posting it here.

Banksy here went over a “ROBBO” piece, Robbo was a pioneer of london graffiti in the mid-80’s and he painted this piece in the Regents canal in Camden in 1985. Somehow this piece had managed to stay up all of these last 25 years… That was until Banksy decided to go over it.

The original wall by Robbo painted in 1985…

MUSEUM OF DEATH 12. 27. 09

My boy Hikaru from Bounty Hunter is in town so I took him to the Museum of Death. If you are fascinated with death, this is the place for you. It’s not for the squeeeeemish. Some of the exhibits are quite graphic. I watched some ill video compilation of cannibalism and other ill shit. After the tour was done, the owner showed off a few of his pets; an albino turtle and a 13 year old 2 headed turtle………………….Good times………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

‘23 MODEL T 12. 23. 09

I went to my mechanic Skeeter today to check on the progress of the Pineapple Express (my 59 Impala). While there, I took some shots of this 1923 Ford he built. I’m not a big Ford guy but this one is pretty sick. It was all motor with seats!

That’s Skeeter in front of my 59. We changed out the drums for disc brakes. Hoping to be on the road for new years!
