I am obsessed with New York City graffiti. Not necessarily the street art variety (although that stuff is very cool) I am more of a Sharpied penis next to someone's mouth kind of girl.
"NO SECRET I"VE GOT A RED CUNT!"
Oh my god. THAT'S your secret? You whore! (Special points to the good Samaritan who tried to clean it up...by misspelling 'country.' Or was she making a political statement? Maybe we do live in a 'cuntry?')
This is one of my FAVORITE graffitis ever of because it exists on so many levels. It is for the movie "Employee of the Month" that sort of came and went but it features a couple current blips in the pop-culture heart monitor.
DANE COOK I know most comedians despise Dane Cook. He seems like a decent hard-working guy who hooks up his friends. Is he the funniest edgiest comedian in the world? Does he describe things loudly instead of tell jokes? Yes. This is a simple graffiti and one that is appropriate for Dane Cook. A fart Poooof. Well done.
JESSICA SIMPSON How is it that Nick Lachey is now the more talented and successful member of that couple? I didn't think I could enjoy a song/video less than "What's Left of Me" until I saw "A Public Affair" it was like the crabs I imagine Brett Ratner gave Ms. Simpson.
"White devil" yeah pretty accurate. As a white person I can safely say the entire Simpson clan are white devils and if you meet one don't look it in the eyes. You will lose your soul.
EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH CHALLENGE
"What do you really want to create with this life?"
Amazing. Is this a message to the graffiti posters to lay off the fart bursts? I hope not, I love fart bursts. Classic. Is it to the cast of the film, especially the pretty talented comedian Dax Shepard? Who knows...but I love it.
Let's close with another pop culture graffiti. This one for the movie "Munich."
This picture my friend Crtsyal took for me on the L stop on Lorimer in Brooklyn. She writes "The movie is about how violence never leads to peace etc... and then ends with this real ragey sex scene that is kind of alarming and made me feel for the wife on the other end of it."
"Jeez I can't even ball my wife anymore without thinking about violence begets violence...what a moral. Don't let violence ruin your sex life."
I love that the graffiti artist took from "Munich" the lesson of "Don't let violence ruin your sex life!"
PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST! HJs for everyone!
