THE $TATUS FACTION

Archive for October, 2009

Shit on you…

So lately around town I have noticed another vandal has been going over me, I just happen to recognize his shit from web site that I can contact him thru. So of course I hit him up, he assured me that he ment nothing by it and offers me up a spot on a Halloween mural. says “oh we should paint together” so I guess no big deal… I ask him for directions so that I can go check out the wall and see if I want to be a part of it… so he starts to be all vague about where it’s at and is all short with me so fuck it!

The next day one of the homies that is aware of the situation hits me up with a picture of the mural OVER another piece of mine! FUCKER this guy is either being massively passive aggressive or he is just some dumb ass toi either way the mural blows….

But I had a change of heart and decide to add my little piece of flair to the mural. Its kind of a big space so very difficult to see my contribution to the work of, I mean pile of shit no pun intended…IMG_0313yup, sometime times I get down like a homeless guy… But i mean it’s a fuckin metaphor right? i mean am i wrong here people? I try to be nice and polite to these fucks!!!

IMG_0315I like to think of it as a nice blend of minimalism and expressionism! along with a big olde “FUCK YOU FUCKS” attached 🙂

Then as I’m leaving I find this!

IMG_0316No its not the orange thing its whats below it! 5 gallon bucket slightly used to buff that wall… they left their dam paint? Come up fool! and back off or else Ill shit on all you fuckers!!!


Bootleggers…

Today is Friday.  Friday is a great day, it’s also the day before Halloween.

I stopped by the taco truck and grabbed some bootleg DVD’s for the weekend.

$5/each I got Where The Wild Things Are and Paranormal Activity.

SOme little fucker basically spoiled the end of Paranormal Activity before I even bought it, but I heard the shit is pretty freaky and it’s topical to the this holiday.

Here’s a pic of Juggalo team captain Eric from (tim & eric awesome show – name check?)

Blow Up L.A. Re-cap

Blow Up L.A. was rad!  T$F killed it.  Big props to Anne Lee and crew!  Thanks!

It was the annual Halloween-themed all night rager.

The place was tricked out.  We did our signature blend of theatrical performance/fine art for the event.  We really try and play up the action beyond just standing in front of an easel- we’ve done that before and it’s hard to keep peoples’ attention for long, plus it’s straight up kind of boring!

We rocked matching get ups…  we’ve previously been Baseball Furies, military troopers, drunken hobos and last Saturday we matched up in escaped convict suits.

We decided to recreate a piece of sculpture we did in Atlanta for the Screen Fiends exhibit.  We basically carved a refrigerator like a jack-o-lantern!  Watch out folks- we’re drinking and using power saws, lead pipes, toxic paint and anything else that can harm a human.

The sculpture came out sick!  People seemed more into it than some of our past performances and the vibes were great!  Great fuckin time!  Sick ass spot and dope underground event.

Heres some pics of the process of our performance.  I’m sure many more photos of the event will circle on Shadowscene, LA Weekly, Tommy B, Glenjamn and all those other sceney nightlife photo blogs.
