  • Another interesting article about the effects of Thatcherite England on the worlds creative sphere. (via Guardianuk)
  • “Once it moved into the galleries, it lost something for me. The artists deserve to make money, but I don’t want to shoot something that’s done with permission. It’s an outlaw art. That’s what makes it thrilling.” Martha Cooper profiled in the NY Times on the 25th anniversary of the landmark book “Subway Art”
  • “a successful commercial brand with anti-establishment overtones.” I know, It’s hard not to laugh at that line. Another article on the whole Obey thing. The best part, the conversation if you will, are the comments to this article. (via NYTimes)

Would our government respond, if so, how would our government respond?” Stacy Peralta talks about his new film “Crips and Bloods: Made in America” (via huffpo)
  • More fun with my favorite chain smoking synth fiends.
