"you don't always come first"
that was written on a give-way sign i pass on my way home from school. all lower case, just in the bottom corner of the triangle. i don't really think motorists would be able to read it from their cars, but i thought it really reflected on our society. most of the graffiti in the suburbs is just, "I love blah blah", and "blah blah wants it up the ass" and don't really get meaningful or political until you get further toward the city. i like most graffiti (i'm not one to do so myself mainly because i'm a bit gutless and i wouldn't know what to write), some of it's just crass, but there are these pieces in the city that are real artwork. and on the train there are just walls of it. i don't like it so much when it's on people's fences facing roads, i think that's too much of a personal attack even if its not done so intentionally. Maybe this post makes Melbourne sound over run by graffiti, it's not, it's probally a lot less than other places. not that i know from experience, but i'm sure there's graffiti everywhere in the world.
