2008 was a crazy year for me. The “divorce” was finally over and no more mortgage. I was set free in a lot of ways. Here’s some pics from the last year that never made the blog..
I drove (..yeah crazy already) about 15,000 miles in a year.
..even in a minivan, I can’t drive 55. Topped out at 117, shaking ALOT.
Spent alot of time in Los Angeles. Things are just different there.
LA doesn’t have so many Dunkin’ Donuts.
FTW. These dudes were up in Echo Park.
Dope SLAY sticker. This dude was up, creepin tags in weird not-so-quick-to-buff spots.
Ellis G came through for a West Coast visit.
Hew Burney came through with the pics when in Vegas..
Taco Tuesday dictated the schedule in ’08.
OD crew wasn’t being pushed anymore, partly due to a “bad apple” bumming out everyone. Something had to give, and it was either retire the crew or clean it up and move on. Bad apple removed.. new apples added.
Welcome to the family Caype OD.
Gas prices got out of control (I had to spend $5.15 a gallon once in Hollywood), leading me to drive less and steal more (gas). Which made LA suck even more.
..so even with all the beautiful weather and women, LA just wasn’t for me.
I was out.
and oh yeah, huge political news.. Obama pulled it off.
Happy New Years!

Some random pictures from the past month..
SoHo wall, “Tyranny Is Dead…. Obama Yes!”. Let’s hope it’s true. Time will tell.
If you feel it.. spray it.
Proposed new NYC bike rack. Looks pretty skateable/bmxable!
I’m not sure if I get this, but it looks like someone put a huge $6.99 price tag on this throwup. If that’s what’s going on , that is THE SHIT! Haha..
the Marriot, Times Square
“Sometimes”. Dope handstyle.
Don Juan Grocery (L.E.S.)
Spotted in Greenpoint.
Seen in Boston. Graffiti meets The Art Of Graffiti Removal. I like.
