PIECEBOOK NYC LAUNCH 06/08

PIECEBOOK-THE SECRET DRAWINGS OF GRAFFITI WRITERS by Sacha Jenkins and David Villorente

PIECEBOOK NYC Launch
The Reed Space 28 JUN 08

Truly PIECEBOOK is the dream blackbook for anyone who is DOWN LIKE DAT. It is a veritable who's who of writer's writers, in an intimate format that looks so legit, you'd swear you could feel the grooves in the pages left by pencils and pens! As authentic & realistic as possible, there are even a few blank sheets left to get up on! Everyone tried to peel the sticker off the inside cover and now I actually have to SMELL THE INK on the pages to figure out which tags are new!

Half of these are MY photos, which I donated for love of the OLD SCHOOL and my big bro, co-author, Dave CHINO. I'm down with BYI since late '85, the one and only QUEEN JULIE BTS ;) Dave had the NERVE to crop me out of all the little ones! Check his blog @12ozprophet PIECEBOOK Launch 08

I have never seen so many Graffiti Kings in one building, live and direct, not on the walls! Much love to the many artists included in the book who represented! In no particular order, and no disrespect for those I forgot * SPone * SKID * TRIM TNC * VANAL KT * ATCO * SAST FSU * STERN * JALER * KEO * DIL * SCAN * HAZE * MARE 139 * KAVES * T-KID * They all signed my copy & DJ EMZ rocked major throwbacks all night! YO! The list went on and on, and I'm sure TFV Squad (inside joke for BET ;) must have had their own damned digital photo field day! Shit, it REALLY IS 1984 in many ways, and it ain't ALL GOOD!

Greg (SPone) Lamarche did an amazing job on the handwritten calliGRAFFITI intro to the book. It was like transcribing the Torah, every letter perfect or the whole page gets thrown away, not at all easy! I will be going to his studio for an amazing collage soon!
Greg Lamarche proving he still has mad SKILLS in publication!

This reception may have been more surreal than my recent Brooklyn Tech HS reunion, complete with a book to sign! Indeed, very similar, and filled with oddly familiar artistic faces from BACK IN THE DAYS recognizing mine. There were framed prints of a few pages, one was a TRIKE GND piece with an ODone BTS throwup (my HS ex and 1018 Prom Date)! UGH! LMAO!! Despite the sweltering 95 degree night- it was 110 inside the joint, the asthmatic air conditioner was NOT cutting it, the throng outside The Reed Space on Orchard Street on the Lower East Side of NYC was a-buzz with how cool the book is and that it came with a custom Sharpie! 10 Deep also printed limited edition t-shirts to commemorate the event!


More pix coming soon... meanwhile check out PIECEBOOK RELOADED

  3. "The music is reversable...but time is not. TURN BACK...TURN BACK...TURN BACK...TURN BACK!!!"

    The Italian peninsula is very pronounced as it juts out into the Medietereanean.
    Considering the shape it is quite obvious they were the primary targets of the post-IceAge/Straight of Gibralter/Noah's Flood disaster.
    Considering the shape of the boot and how Sicily "caught" the surge, the resulting tsunami inundated the entire southern portion of the peninsula, killing everything and perhaps covering even the highest land masses.

    Until ugliness ocurrs I won't have the disfavored's respect. How ugly do you people need it to get?
    They obviously fail to recognize storms are my specialty.
    The Gods just sent another clue:::2.24 orca killing two days after viewing "The Cove".
    She's better off dead than knowingly incurring evil in her profession, but this is very common today:::People think they are "earning".
    How's an 8.8 for ugly????:::I was told I was not welcome because I insulted the shitty quality of their fruit.
    "You're not welcome here." Oh no? Ok...

    Christianity is punishment for Europeans.
    You ALL hate Jews::"They own banking, they control Hollywood and poison our children's minds, etc etc.") YET YOU PRAY TO ONE LIKE A GOD!!
    Dislodge your head from your ass. Must you be chumps your WHOLE LIVES???

    The women have God's favor, and when the women do all the evil, as was the case with Mother, this serves to "equalize" the playing field, ensuring no wisdom comes to this family as they grow older. As a result they never make progress and achieve the lowest possible placement when reincarnated.

    The Gods have black women betray the men to prime misogyny in the black community.
    They're lying to you and they've been your WHOLE LIVES!!
    Europeans deserved to be inflicted with Christianity and the United States. It's just too bad the black man had to assimilate into this white punishment.

    Just as the Gods prohibited the Italians from attacking the Moors because of their favor, so were the Jews prohibited from attacking (most) motherland Germans. Instead they attacked German-Americans.
    And the United States for ignoring the Holocaust as it happened. Thus we had the 60s and the deterioration of decency in society.
    Californication.
    The Italians, sexual a primary problem, had an endless supply at hand.
    The Jews, sheltered from this new-world holocaust in their communities, watched the devestation.


    And justice for all.

  4. The only way Planet Earth will achieve sustainability is if we "take out the trash" and the gods allow the most disfavored among us to be terminated by eliminating reincarnation for those individuals. The bouy is sinking, social decay is becoming ruinous and unless it begins to rise to the surface the gods will get their way and life will end on Planet Earth.

    The gods instructed Pharroh to give the Jews gold as temptation, and it worked. Their tactic should ring a bell.
    So unlike Pharroh, but an effective corruptor which allowed the gods to justify 40 years of warmongering under Joshua. This caused another host of problems to befall the Jews as well.
    The gods used them as "minor partners" with the Italians in the destruction of Planet Earth through "Western Civilization", leading us to where we are today.

    Even as peasant farmers we could be lulled::Good weather, bountiful harvests, etc. This illustrates old-world preacher's effectiveness::::
    This stereotypical preacher had classic preaching styles:::Loud, damnation-fueled teachings. Contrast to today, preachers who are lulling the Damned into "cruise control, the old-world style was important to snap people out of complacency. Unfortunately, in today's enviornment people consider this style insulting, and they lose a precious message designed for the favored of yesterday.

    The Republicans were consistantly fingered for the corrupt trash they are and this time around the gods employed a sleazy, underhanded tactic:::timed the crisis so it would fall into the Democrat's lap with the bailout scandal. Republican donors/friends enjoyed enrichment at the expense of the taxpayer, as we saw with the S&L Scandal in the 80s, but this time they dodged the scorn associated and tried to unload it on the opposing party.
    The real estate scandal was different. The disfavored who do what they are told greased the wheels of this crisis, been foreclosed on and evicted, and are left holding an empty bag labeled "immortality".
    The gods played both sides of this event, and those to whom they sold the real estate scam in the 90s profiteered in the 2000s when the sub-prime machine flew into full gear during the peak of the market in 05-07. But we are all judged for our behavior, real or clone host, and despite perception of priveledge those who participated will suffer poetic justice, unless they have slipped into Damnation and are no longer eligible for punishment.
    The gods position their theater like this for a reason::::This alienates the masses who flock to the party of evil liberalism while using the Republicans to prepare for god's will with governmental insolvency and the destruction of the true "evil empire", the ultimate punishment for the United States and the West.

    The United States is a dumping ground for the disfavored. This was how it was used during European immigration, this is how it is used today.
    The Japanese Earthquake/Tsunami of 3/11/11 was actually a good sign for the people. Alarming because it came decades after their most recent admitted atrocities during WWII, at least they experienced corrective punishment, whereas the United States won't be as lucky.
    Russia too enjoyed corrective punishment for the 1980 invasion of Afghanistan.
    There is something about Afghanistan. Interferring/injuring the Afghan people incurrs he god's wrath. It cost the SOviets their protection of communism. Because of it the gods have leveled the playing field among the last few white peoples who still enjoyed protection on their way to a homogeneous global enviornment.
    Yes, the gods have been planning for this for decades and using clone host politicians to accomplish their goals. Ronald Reagan turned a $1 trillion Federal debt into $6 trillion at the end of his Administration. Much like W in Iraq, this served to terminate the favor of a group of people. Reagan just didn't have to do it with violence as W did, but he did do it against white people, which says something.

  5. The meaning of life.

    The secret at the core of the meaning of life is that only children ascend into heaven. The innocence and purity of children are the valued charecterisitics, requirements of the gods. Come adulthood people's purity becomes compromised as they are corrupted, earning them their place in the level of the animals. The gods have transcended the typical needs of the animals, and have achieve a higher life form.
    So many clues they offer in society. One is to find your inner child inside. To understand these charecterisits will help you see the path you must take. Children value things that are healthy, like family, togetherness, unconditional love, not drinking, drugs, sexual intercourse.
    Mankind has taken this journey since the beginning of time::::A moment of clarity compelled those with faith to pursue enlightenment, pray and seek more, and with proper long-term behavior more was offered. When combined with attonement for prior sins significant progress is made, ensuring true candidacy upon reincarnation, resulting in the individual's final spiritual journey.
