The title is a paraphrase of one of my favorite writers, Kurt Vonnegut; may he rest in peace. In my previous blog, I posed the question: Can tagging reach the level of art. My only respondant said yes. I agree with him as well, but with one proviso: the tagging must increase the beauty of the structure being tagged. We all have our own definitions of beauty, so my proviso is a big copout, but that is the best I can do. For instance:
Do you think this dumpster looks better for the tagging? I don’t. There are some lovely examples of tagging in Hollywood. Try keeping your eyes open. I’ve seen some great stuff near Robin’s Market on Hollywood and, uhm, and uhm St. Andrews? Well, around there. If you’re from Hollywood, you know where I mean.
Here are some crows who were looking for action this morning in the construction lot next door. They are the clowns of the bird world; except when they’re eating other birds eggs. But hey! People eat eggs too!
