From The Times-Picayune

“the Gray Ghost…pleaded no contest Tuesday to the charge of criminal trespassing in New Orleans Municipal Court Division D.

He received a 60-day suspended sentence for overpainting a graffiti-style mural on the corner of Press and Burgundy streets in Bywater on Oct. 22. Under the conditions of the suspended sentence, he can no longer remove graffiti without first getting the property owner’s OK. City and state properties are also out of bounds without permission.”

I have been into Kid Cudi since I heard the songs Maui Wowie and Embrace the Martian.  One of his fans created this video with a set of super-dope ladies named The Beautiful Warriors. This makes it perfect for a day focused on muses.

The Urban Cook Book

Creative Recipes for the Graffiti Generation.

When I first picked this book up, I thought it was going to be writers and artists favorite recipes.  It is not.  The book is a melding of artist/creatives profiles and recipes the author, King Adz, wanted to publish.  A simple mish-mash of everything.
