    I always loved the art form.. as a kid I would love watching the graff scene even though I never knew anything about it.. I knew one day I was going to be one of the 'Mysterious graffiti people'
    soo then I started copping immortal techinque on his bio it said he used to be down with graff when he was younger.. then I picked up a magazine at my camp.. I found it around somewhere.. like ona a picnic bench, so I just checked out the pieces started doing my own pieces.. but I've always loved vandalising shit I remember when I was like 12 I would write 'CZUP' on the busses and shit and then getting chased for it and hopping out the fire emergency exit.. it's just something I've always loved and I decided to pursue it..

    Once i moved into the mile high city, my brother met a new friend a school and invited him to come over. He would draw burners and throw-ups on this binder we didn't use. Once i saw what he drew, graffiti had me by the balls..

    I got into graff, because I lived in redneck city, OH. It was just an expression of self to say "I'm not you". It was also a mixture of that good ole teenage rebellion, friends who felt the same as me, and most importantly... ART.

    Actually, I invented graffiti.....

    One day, while I was finding a cure for the bubonic plague while simultaneously slicing a piece of bread for the first time in recorded history, jesus came to me in a vision (i.e. - showed me his image in the macaroni of my kids cuisine). The image began to speak, it said that I must stop being so hot and sexy all of the time and start doing graff, that crazy bastard! The image then proceeded to fade away and I consumed the anointed pasta. I felt a jolt of holy energy run through my spine and quickly took to the streets and began to paint. I started out painting daffodils with ak47's, but I figured that might be too offensive in light of recent flower-based tragedies involving weaponry across America, so I thought that letters would be more appropriate. Anyone else who does graffiti is copying me.

    I think that might have been the best short story written in the history of written language. Can I touch you?
