Some d-bags decided to voice their dislike of Fulcrum Gallery by tagging their windows. I've noticed an uptick in tags around town. Namely some here in the parking lot of our office and just the other day on my dentists office building from this weekend. Those ones are interesting 'cause there are sets of tags that look like their from dueling groups trying to claim that spot.
Let's hope TPD takes note and is all over this kinda' shit. Times may be tough but this is never what a community needs to help recover.

|Our neighborhood is getting hit a lot too. I was thinking about making some stickers to attach to the tag that say something amusing and derogatory about the tagger.

|apparently dada is not dead. Dada is tagging art galleries. damn anarchist infiltrators. Where is Erik Anderson!?|

|This tagging is ugly. Has it been reported to TPD? That's the only way to be sure they are aware of it.
I'll bet the hilltop crips are already afraid of this new gang "Yuppie Scum" that is now on the street.
No New York Yankees baseball caps for these gangsters. They blend right in. This is a tough one.

|A part of me finds this dadaist tagging amusing.
Another part of me is in terror at the thought of a dadaist gang roving the streets.
Another part of me is wondering what self-respecting dadaist would go tagging to begin with.
So much confusion!!!!

|Maybe a dadaist that checked out wikipedia:
In addition to being anti-war, dada was also anti-bourgeois and anarchistic in nature.

|This does looks to be the work of the Wild Dada Ducks. I suspect they can be rounded up at the Deadly Nightshade Cafe. I don't think they should be trifled with.|

|you know what we need? Rival gangs of modern and post-modern surrealists.
The street fights would be intense... but nearly impossible to comprehend.

|Who's to say this isn't just part of some fancy art installation at the Fulcrum.|

|@Crenshaw: if it is then success to them for a solid viral ad campaign.|

|"Asp Wipe" is a tag I've always wanted to scrall on a toilet paper dispenser at the Luxor hotel in Las Vegas.|

|@seejane - Hahaha.|
"Let's hope TPD takes note and is all over this kinda' shit."
Based on my experience from a similar incident, and also questions I posed to a City representative on the subject during a neighborhood meeting, I have the opinion that a lot of City effort is placed on enforcing the ordinance (link below) as it relates to the victim/property owner (except when the property owner is the city itself or state), while no effort is made to prosecute the vandals themselves.

|Do the police actually look at the tags to see who is active or new in a neighborhood or area? It seems to me that tagging is linked to drug dealing and that any information is useful information.
This particular instance does not seem to my ameteur eye to be related to drug dealing. It seems to be targeted at the gallery for having art that the vandal does not like.
I really hate this kind of stuff too. People making the city look worse. Idiots.

|The gallery may have had it coming. What do you expect to happen when you don't accommodate the Dadaists?|
Although I have another home on the web I thought it might be nice to lead by example a bit and put this blog system up to the test myself.
So far, so good... Funny how I build web tools for other people that are far better than the one's I have setup over on KFnet.
