I aslo have the DVD! I think it would be biased to think that it sums up the underground art culture, but if you dig a little deeper, you can find that the dynamic portrayed in this book, in the movie in the differences of states, background and visions can give a pretty good idea as to how people make shit out of nothing. I cherish this book as I cherish most of my books, but it's got a little something more attached to it than filling up my shelf with beautiful works...

Amazing!! This book has helped propel me the last month! Literally, back on a skateboard after being inspired here. Great art and cultural discourse smashed together really giving a big picture of what went down in the '90s and 00's regarding some of the greatest street and gallery art of our time. This book helped a philosophy i have regarding art, soul, life, and living gell in me mind. Just Wonderful... JOY indeed.
