one thing about milan that i was not prepared for was the graffiti. it’s **everywhere**. and i’m not exaggerating, it’s on every building, even the super chic fashionable ones. most of the tags are just bad, armature stuff, but there was a couple of things that really struck a cord.
the first one is in 3 pics – it covered the entire side of a brick wall/fence/divider. the italian when translated (according to the artist’s website) reads: “the future is not more that one than once” (i think google’s free translation service could use some work, or conversely, things just look cooler in italian). the artist, ivan, has stuff all over, and all of it interesting. his website quite cool, take some time to check it out… the dolphinis saying “i am extinguished”. interesting.
the next piece that caught my eye looks a bit like the artist bansky, tho, i have no idea if it is indeed bansky, or just a similar piece. this would make a really interesting, graphic tattoo:
then there was this piece, tagged inside the duomo, one of the most stunning gothic cathedral’s in the world:
ummm, all i gotta say is i’m sure by now andrea and paola’s love has evolved into a bitter, spiteful, tormented affair with a lovely dose of gonorrhea thrown in for good measure (andrea’s a world class tramp, her mobile number is all over milan – she provides quick relief for anyone needing it. oh if only paola had known before he gave his heart to that trollop). all because they just had to deface one of the worlds greatest buildings with their little try for immortality.
time for day’s gentle reminder that tomorrow is earth day folks and all of you need to get off your asses and do something good for your mother (earth that is).
this one is a complete and total n0-brainer, however it’s good to revisit the basics sometimes:

p.s., date no. 5 last night. awesome. (ok it was less of a “date” and more of an impromptu stop-over to hang for a bit. nice.
