BET: Follow the leader?
way to promote individuality BET.

 i didn't like the concept, i don't htink the idea of parkour goes with that tagline at all, but it was still some good movment and the commericals purpose is to promote BET, not parkour. oh well, always god to see some good movement though.

i just want to say i think talking in CAPS, makes you look really CREDIBLE. Does anyone else here AGREE?

and honeslty what is the diffrence between The war on drugs and prohibition. All the outlawing of a substance does is allow the money to go to either al capone in the case of prohbition, or pablo escobar in the case of the war on drugs.

Now people here arn't arguing for the legalization of drugs like crystal meth, or heroin, so honeslty lose some of you intensity.

Depraved Indifference-
first of all, you probaly know nothing about cuba if your opinion about it is that the "president" gets to tell reporters to f*ck off. it seems to me your the type of guy, or kid, that feels its nesscary portray everyone else as putting themselves up on a pedastool, only so that YOU can have the priveldge of seeming liek the guy thats telling them all to shove it.

now more specificaly to this, do you know M2, have you met M2, do you know his real f#cking name?!  before you start saying that your dissapointed in him because you can "control yourself" more then him (meanwhile you the one calling people facists over the internet) you should probaly know him as a person. did you quit your job inorder to form a site dedicated to helping people improve themselves? this is his site, his decision. should kaos have been banned, i dont know, i dont know all the details, and i dont care. Kaos not being on APK isnt going to affect my training. if you do want to chime in on the subject at the very LEAST contribute somthing usefull to it instead of saying how hes a sucky liar.

Also It seems like you want to get banned.


EDIT: demon said it better.

Is there anyway all of the peopel that come down from NYC could stay in one place, i made a head count thread on NYPK to see how many of us are comming so i should have a good estimate soon. But if we all stay together it will problay be alot easier for when we arrive, and leave. I think the gym is problay the only place big enough to hold us all. just throwing it out there.

Great read. Great movie.


Although while reading it i can't help but see how gear, and others on this site, have been preaching this sort of thing for a while now.

I d believe that graffiti is an art, but just because it is dosen't mean that the public should have to look at it in their public spaces.

If Jason Pollock comes up to your wall and starts dripping, and spraying his paints all over your wall, wouldn't you be pissed?

sure its art, but take your art to a gallery where people can choose to see it, thats the things its all about the choice.

Most Graffiti artists are begining to get their own galleries. at least that is how it is going in NYC. i know Banksy has a gallery in london. I also know of two writters here in NYC that have galleries. One is James de la vega (very simmilar to Bansky in his political satire type stuff) and another guy named Neckface. You can just go to flickr, or somthing ans search their names if you want to see some of their stuff.
