Got Graffiti?



Another photo of the infamous Lincoln Crossing development. Read Sittin' Out This One's story at the water cooler.

The paint has a metallic golden glow; perhaps to reflect the higher class of the perpetrator. The style, relying heavily on words rather than symbols, lacks the vibrancy of the typical urban tagger and betrays the true depths of emptiness and sterile bourgeois values that typify the exurban milieu.

Gold paint? Gauche.

HAR! Cmyst, well done.

For some reason this makes me think of a museum exhibit. maybe with a caption like:

"The exurban building explosion of the late 20th and early 21st centuries led to the construction of many large and poorly built subdivisions. These areas became the slums of the mid 21st century, following the economic upheavals that started with the credit crisis of 2007-2012."

Very well said, Cymst and David! I can totally envision the museum exhibit caption, or at least a description in a photo essay on Slate or something.

Update: This house is in foreclosure, according to the NOD lists. It appears to have been rented out to an unsuspecting family. Upon delivery of the Notice of Default, the probably packed up and left. They must have felt compelled to leave a little message for the owner or the foreclosing lender.

City and county governments should be providing the information on NODs and foreclosures on a free, public website, so that tenants can check the status of their potential rental before signing a lease. I'm not sure that I'd graffiti the place on the way out (and I certainly would choose a more tasteful paint color), but I'd be damned angry to discover that the rent and deposit money had gone to my former landlord's new rental.
