Stuck Up Street Art

Artist Revs is now known for his malleable metal pieces (that spell out his tag) which he places around Brooklyn and Manhattan. He used to be known for his huge tags on buildings, subways, and billboards around New York, until he was arrested in 2000 when another street artist Ader snitched him out to police for his subway graffiti. He's unique among this generation of street artists in his refusal to sell his work. He explains that "once money changes hands for art, it becomes a fraudulent activity."

Hi. I'm in a staff meeting. There are 83 ceiling tiles in our meeting room.
And 8 light fixtures, with 24 fluorescent bulbs. That is all.

Pfft, flowers, the painted whores of the plant world.

“Now they show you how detergents take out bloodstains, a pretty violent image there. I think if you've got a T-shirt with a bloodstain all over it, maybe laundry isn't your biggest problem. Maybe you should get rid of the body before you do the wash.” 

I was lecturing to a group of English teachers about Dante. Suddenly one of them got up- English teachers mind you- and said, "What is Dante?". "Well, Madam," I replied, "It is a kind of detergent."
