Boy, I step away from this poster for ONE day...
Motorcoat Dave - glad to hear Cheapo hasn't ripped down the poster yet. I was at the Uptown one the other day putting this up and there were a pile of posters underneath some freshly posted ClearChannel flyers. Like, please - does Kid Rock really need a poster in a music store to advertise his Target Center concert?
I'm glad I've got my own copy of this, and even better, I'm glad I get to play with my favorite band.
I know everyone really dislikes this new guy but don't you think everyone's over reacting about his whole "nigs" comment. I mean, yeah it was stupid and lame and did not make sense but come on... I feel the like words such as nigger, dike, queer have been adopted and used by the very poeple they were meant to insult so as to strip any and all negative connotations. I know that "nigger" will never reach the acceptability level and "queer" but if people keep flipping out over it's use or rather mis-use then you are only empowering the nagativity of the word... blah,blah,blah....
i have a retarded pal...he just got real worked up when i called you a fuckin retard....he doesn't want you on his team. unreal......i can't believe you used "My best friend is black".....i really like Dikembe Mutombo...does that mean i got the right?.....go away
First things first..."DWITT IS THE SHIT" the perspective on this is fantastic. You've got such a visionary mind, keep on dazzling us. Now, as for NMT...I've been reading up on you. You're messin' with the big boys now. Don't mess with MaxFlo, Jeph, Jermaine or anyone else. You can't kick someone in the nuts and run away and hide. You've started a lot of crap with some very talented and intelligent folks here who have lived and breathed poster design for years. You can't just pop in and start antagonizing people. If you can't appreciate people and what they do on this site, then take a hike. Do not sling racial slurs and do not think that your shit doesn't stink. We know where you live and there are many dudes on here that are well connected. Change your attitude, grow a pair, crawl into a hole, think about your behavior and then come out and apologize. You will still get beaten down, but if you're lucky, really lucky, you will be forgiven. Punk ass!
Your best friend is black?
Heres what I want you to do: tonite, go over to his place and tell him that you used a form of the word NIGGER on a public message board...not in any 'referencial' or informative sense...just pissing around talking about a poster.
If he doesnt hit you in the mouth first, LISTEN to what he tells you and remember it.
I know it is a bit off topic for what is about to happen here, but I did see this (and a bunch of other wonderful Squad 19 things) hanging at Cheapo yesterday and really loved it (and them). Great job David.
I dont care where you grew up.
Is growing up in 'the hood' justification for using the word in a public environment?
Im a BLACK MAN, and I dont do that.
And is your 'hood' association with the word some sort of tired stereotype that only NIGGERS live in the 'hood'/ghetto/whatever?
Explain it to me.
maybe he meant to spell fags?
.. uh.. shit, I'm just kidding here.. that comment does require an explanation though... seems like he meant what he typed in which case, it's totally offside
Kind of a funky scan - these are WAAAY more beautiful in person. Darker greens on a cream-colored cardstock - has a very earthy feel.
Big thanks to David for doing these for us - I'm puttin' 'em up today!
