The building I live in gets repeatedly hit by the world's worst graf writers. All of their names are stupid and all of the tags look like someone signing a postcard. I have to wonder if these guys have ever really seen graffiti or maybe just heard about it and decided to try it to be cool. The city sends out a crew to paint over it (always in a color that doesn't match the wall) and then I have to pay to fix it. No props to any of those losers.

Grant Taylor, a dope skater shown here on the cover of Thrasher, and a bunch of other dudes have been sued by a building owner for $1 million in connection with alleged property damage. A building owner in Georgia contends that Taylor (supposedly GNAR) and others have continuously written on his home/work space over the past few years. I don't know anything about this case (it might all be bs), but I have mixed emotions about painting where people live. My interest in graffiti is tempered by my interest in keeping my own home clean. To me, this is a little different than hitting a Clear Channel billboard or a mailbox. I know a number of graf heads read this blog and I'd like to hear what you have to say about this.
