December 2013, in al-Khalifa street, Old Cairo
Earlier this month, British stencil artist DS painted one of his signature characters, an old Hello Kitty spoof he’d long ago dubbed Bad Kitty, on an Islington wall along Essex Road. The next morning, the 28-year-old saw someone buffing the figures and photographed the removal process from across the street. Then DS stenciled the stranger’s portrait in the very same place.
Amusing, but it’s still vandalism of private property, even if you call it “street art.”
Mom would have loved this had I painted it in her basement, but only after she kicked my ass upstairs one step at a time.
Thanks for kicking my ass, Mom. We’re gonna miss you.
Banksy is not one of my favorite angst-driven graffiti artists, mainly because I don’t agree with his politics, and secondly because graffiti is vandalism. Aside from that, this is clever.
Via Lemur King, the story of New Jersey’s “Action Park” is amazing. Anyone here have stories? Email ‘em, and I’ll post them with credit.

This great video was blocked for a while. Gotta put it back up. Gotta.
One of my favorites from Pink Floyd’s “Meddle” album, and with that, we’re out of here. Have a great weekend folks, and be back here for more fun tomorrow.
