Richard Hambleton

Actually interviewed the insanely elusive Mr Hambleton for Frank151 magazine at the behest of our friend CHINO BYI for the Ssur curated chapter of the book back in 2003. Very insightful stuff. We didn't live through it but from what's been passed down duke deserves all of the recognition and then some. Cool cat. Link's busted check it here
Well placed Futura 2K tag

Far from the glorified ramblings you'd expect of your typical incarcerated graffiti writer, these remarkably well-crafted, candid reflections on surviving life in a maximum security facility as told from the perspective of inmate Cyrus Yazdani, aka BUKET, are arguably the best defense for why vandalism should never warrant serving hard time. Kinda depressing but check the Blog here

Mad Special

Congratulations all around to Hense and crew for this excellent new mini documentary filmed down south earlier this year. The ambitious five minute short offers a very rare and personable glimpse into the world of our good friend and collaborator's life and art.

Highly recommend viewing this in HD mode as well.

Just goes to show how much disruption two people can create if they set their minds to it.

In a country of 300,000,000 people it's truly surprising that such instances of terroristic violence don't occur far more often. These guys were basically outliers almost 6 standard deviations away from the mean; after marinating in America's fear-based culture, ones intuition about such things tends to skew towards assuming that terroristically violent people would be FAR more common.
Thinking about it, this kind of restores your faith in human nature: just about anybody *could* do this, but far fewer than than one in a million actually do.

In related news we don't know them and not to be on anyone's jock or anything but Malvo BTM hands down takes the prize for best tag name going in graffiti right now... the crosshair "O" c'mon son. Too good.
