Graffiti. Vandalism. Graffiti. Vandalism… BLAH. BLAH. BLAH.’
Humans create vandalism all over. I’m not talkin about some 2-dimensional, changing the colors of stuff. I mean vandalizing our planet by putting our shit everywhere. When I climb a mountain, get to the top and look off to see our buildings, roadways, and cities, I can’t help but think about how THAT is vandalism. And when railroads get put down, along with their fences and their walls, isn’t that vandalism? And when the train horn is blasting at 2am or a plane is flying overhead breaking the silence isn’t that a form of “audio vandalism”? When a new high rise condo in Brooklyn blocks the “sunset over Manhatten” view that their neighbors have had for 50 years, isn’t THAT vandalism? Vandalism in a full 3 dimensions.. “3-D vandalism”.
Don’t get me wrong.. I like walls and trains. I just so happen to want my walls and trains painted. So fuckin what.. I change the color of something. Yeah it’s vandalism. It’s ALL vandalism!
