“NY is a museum with its posters and graffiti 
If you’re in the city
on Sunday 
come check me”…

– “Pacifics” from Digable Planets

20 years after being released, this song is still one of my favorite hip-hop tracks to just straight up CHILLLLL out to.

A couple of my favorite Halloween pieces, both by Alert and both done in Dorchester..

“Alert”… Skills. HAZ (Heroes And Zeroes). BFS (Built For Speed). 1992

“Alert”.. 5AV (5 Angry Vandels). KBN (Kills By Night). 1993



“Alone” piece, English High, 1993

“Alone” piece at English High, 1993.

English High School was a major spot in Boston (Jamaica Plain specifically), until it became a buff in 1994. I still remember the night we painted this. I think it was February and it was COLD. “RANT OD” painted the bottom right wall with scrap cans, and that shit still came out so dope. I can’t find a picture of his whole piece, (so if anyone has it, give it up), but check out his “R”! I had to take the awkward spot on the stairs. Actually,  I was reclaiming some dissed letters that I already had there. (Just under the “E”, you can see a piece of the old “E”.) The mint green color in the fill was a rare brand of some early designer paint that I think was called Cool Colors. You could only get it at Somerville Lumber and they only had a few cans at a time. And that green that I signed it and hooked up the “OD Top Notch”?…. yup, that is the legendary Krylon “Jungle Green”. It was discontinued about 5 years by then, so I was being very sparing with the reserves.
