"In the fields workers are planting maize seeds under the direction of an overseer with staff and headdress. Close-up of a worker's face. Whatever it is that makes a man a man, all feeling and all soul has gone out in that face. Nothing is left but body needs and body pleasures. I have seen faces like that in the back wards of state hospitals for the insane. Faces that live to eat, shit and masturbate. Satisfied with the inspection the camera moves back to observe group patterns of the workers. They are moving through a three-dimensional film of the operation that covers them with a grey sheen. Occasionally the overseer adjusts a slow worker with his eyes." The Wild Boys: A Book of the Dead WHB

Bright Lights, Big City: L.A. Graffiti on screen & in print

Los Angeles is the laboratory where the recipe for modern American life was formulated. The city’s early decentralization and the populace’s disenfranchisement were precursors to the urban/suburban American condition today. These forces pushed contemporary LA graffiti writers away from comfort zones if they wanted their work to be seen. Angeleno writers knew that if they wanted folks to see their name, they had to make it large, and they had to place it where the majority of other Angelenos were: on the highway.

i thought it was ok and i thought it was ok. But i thought. Therefore, it's ok.
i only see those that speak from within anyway." Then he fell gently asleep. AJ
