Wu Wednesday

There are so many different hashtag yadda yadda's that we think it's getting a bit silly.  Other than the thursday throwbacks, we like Wu Wednesdays.  To kick off our first We Wednesday we would share a great classic.  Where were you when you first heard this legendary song?

Tuesday's Underground Lowdown

We don't have a video that we reviewed but stumbled upon this trailer for a documentary about Philadelphia's graffiti history.  It appears to be professionally done and filled with some rich material and interviews.

From the YouTube page, "Some argue that modern graffiti was born in Philadelphia, where the pioneers of wall-writing became citywide celebrities during the late 1960s and early 1970s. Graffiti eventually consumed the city, and a new mayor made it his top priority to fight back. In the process, the city's Mural Arts Program was born. Philadelphia is now a great outdoor museum. Yet graffiti still thrives, with new writers always ready to replace those who are caught or quit. Featuring interviews with Cool Earl, Kool Klepto Kidd, and other famous graffiti legends, as well as former Mayor W. Wilson Goode and Mural Arts Program executive director Jane Golden. The documentary was shot, edited and self-financed by Robert Moran, a journalist in Philadelphia and first-time director."

It was uploaded on Sep 4, 2010 so we are contacting the email listed at the end of the video to see if this video is still available and for how much.  As soon as we're able to find out we will update this post and let you know.

Freight Fridays Feature Fix

 This weeks Freight Fix is a recently buffed former St Lawrence Railroad car.  From WikiPedia, "The St. Lawrence and Atlantic Railroad (reporting mark SLR), known as St-Laurent et Atlantique Quebec (reporting mark SLQ) in Canada, is a short line railway operating between Portland, Maine on the Atlantic Ocean and Montreal, Quebec on the St. Lawrence River. It crosses the Canada-U.S. border at Norton, Vermont, and is owned by short line operator Genesee and Wyoming.

The line was built by the Atlantic and St. Lawrence Railroad in the U.S. and the St. Lawrence and Atlantic Railway in Canada, meeting at Island Pond, Vermont south of the Canada–United States border. Major communities served include Portland and Lewiston in Maine; Berlin, New Hampshire; Island Pond, Vermont; and Sherbrooke and Montreal in Quebec."
  The markings of the old NSL were for the St Lawrence and Raquette River Railroad.  We weren't able to find any information regarding this railroad which we find to be compelling.

Action TBT

These are a couple of old action shots we have sitting around.  They go back to around 2004-2006 and are apart of a small collection.  SOSA featured here to the right was selected as one of this weeks Feature Writer of the Day on our Facebook Page.

Action shots go waaaay back and can be seen in books like Subway Art.  Almost ALL graffiti writers have action shots of themselves or someone else.  They've become a staple in any dedicated graffiti writers illegal portfolio.

We do not condone any kind of graffiti vandalism on public or private property.  We have documented the graffiti art over many years for those who appreciate this type of art work and features work from around the world.  Our goal is to educate those who are also interested in learning about this underground subculture.  If you have any questions or have images you would like to share, please email us at

Freight Fridays Feature Fix

Todays Freight Fridays Feature Fix is a rusting masterpiece that was blessed with an MVP End 2 End by SOSA (RA), BONES (FUA), CRUK (FUA) & TSAR (RA).

The faded blue with the rust really gives this boxcar its Americana classic railroad look.  Don't know if the writers knew their pieces would only survive the cancerous rust for a few years or not but the rust overtaking the pieces definitely make this car worth a Feature.  Its a sick car with some sick pieces that have become apart of the car which makes this car one big piece of art.

The TSAR piece was already selected for one of our Featured Artist of the Day earlier this year on our Facebook Page.  Check our page for more Featured Artists of the Day!  TSAR is known for a unique, ever changing, never repeating style master but as well as being clean.

New Site!

new websiteYes we have been a ghost on this page but that doesn't mean we've fallen off.  We have been hard at work trying to get our site up and running.  While we've been doing that we've been organizing our products for production and more!  Things are getting very exciting for us and we're eager to have an official launch for our site.  Even though it is up and running there are plenty of errors and a few broken links.  The broken links are still pages we're working on but will be up one by one daily.  We just added our 'Product' page but the individual product pages are not up yet.  We will keep you updated as there are news to report.  Stay up and until then, check us out on facebook,
