shout out to melrose and fairfax blog which covers street art in l.a. i was just down there and happened to see a work by an artist I know and watch called dogbyte. i voted for dogbyte in a poll by melrose and fairfax blog which so far had about 500 participants — my fav was running third but that is still pretty strong.

I also want to post some of my shots from that trip, plus comment on the David Wojnarowicz story, especially since it is on page 1 of New York Times today column by Holland Cotter. drifting

    I guess you gotta type in “dogbyte” to his internal search to actually see the three or so cites.
    I am pretty sure I saw his “melroseandfairfax” sticker on an electrical box near that intersection.

    this is really a non sequitar but I found myself seeking the lyric “hey doc” by Richard Shindell and finding that it is from “Confession” on “Somewhere near Paterson” about a guy wanting a refill of his meds and I also wonder if it is my archive or vault.
