i gave up, gave in, caved in.
popular art culture seems to dictate that in order to validate and legitimize "street art" it is necessary to document the work and then post it on the internet to be worshiped or berated the world wide.
while this is an idea that i still struggle and disagree with i suppose bands want to tour, records want to be distributed, magazine articles want to get published - and i want my shit to be seen by more than just the handful of people who walk past a sticker on a light pole in houston, texas. or poster, stencil, etc in whatever other city i happen to roll through.
so after years of fighting inconsistent internet access, computer illiteracy, personal conflict and reasoning, and factors outside the realm of technology and questionable artistic integrity - i started this blog in february 2007.
because i want proof for both the doubters and the dealers. i want posterity. and i want my ego fellated.
but it didn't take long to realize what legitimate web designers have known long before - that the difficulty doesn't so much lie in creating the site, but in getting people to look at it once it's finished. so just like promotion of the work necessitated a website, the website is now necessitating promotion. and what better way to promote a website than through a more popular website?
