The King Has Returned

Being that I almost got arrested for taking this photo I decided to get it up on the internet ASAP. NEKST has returned to H-Town and is bombing the shit out of this place. Unfortunately his I-10 piece got buffed before I could snap it but I was lucky enough to catch this shiny silver piece glimmering in the sun today. Bomit was there taking photos too when a security guard threatened us and made us leave so when I was around on the other side of the property he shows back up and decides to tell an HPD officer about my presence. I was ‘lawfully detained’ for trespassing, searched & questioned. Not only did he accuse me of being Bomit but he accused me of creating the piece and couldn’t understand why I admired it or was taking a photo. Crazy how NEKST probably had an easier time creating it than we did photographing it. Luckily they decided to let me go and I’m not banned from the property which is good because Specs Liquor is there!

NEKST, major props man. Shit is dope! Keep rockin’ it!

    Are y’all nuts?
    Sure it’s ‘nice’ and ‘art’, but he also destroyed someone’s property, and you are encouraging him to do more!

    Let’s all go paint our name on your, your mom’s and your grandmom’s houses!

    I agree with Jenny.
    WTF? You support vandalism?

    It may be artisitic and even aesthetically pleasing to some, but it’s still vandalism.

    Do you not consider advertising “vandalism”?

    What about bombing (real lethal weapons) buildings in other countries?

    What about tossing waste in the ocean?

    I’m personally more concerned with that than paint on a wall which can be removed.

    Of course polution and war are awful, but you can’t use one crime to justify another.

    What you are saying is that because the government bombs another country or corporations litter the highway with billboards that it is ok for some punk to come and deface my property?

    Who pays for that? The owner. He pays to have it removed. He pays in decreased property value. He pays in lost revenue when customers decide to take their business eleswhere.

    That is, as the kids say, “WHACK”

    Yes, truly whack. Very whack indeed. And you’re right. Two yins don’t make a yang. Bringing back Java Java as an example (http://houston.metblogs.com/archives/2006/06/businesses_to_b.phtml), I think businesses should be able to determine what goes on their walls.

    I loved Java Java when living in The Heights.

    And yes, business owners SHOULD have the right to determine what goes on their walls.
