Technical problems

My laptop died recently, so uploading photos has become a little challenging. I've taken some great ones though, and I'm looking forward to showing them to the world, as soon as I become technologically enabled once more.

Mean time, I bought the space invader map of Manchester, which came with some stickers about Rubik's Cubism. You may see one or two in town. Nothing to do with me, mind.

Also, how evil are tats cru? "The TATS CRU furnishes advertising and design services to businesses reaching out to young urban consumers ...". More whores at the capitalist gang bang, to paraphrase Bill Hicks.

So these TATS CRU guys sprayed fake graffiti adverts for some Sony console thing on rented walls. There's lots of discussion and pics on wooster and an article on wired about it.

MCRmarks being about more than just street art, here is a piece of tomato which has been stuck to a wall on Princess Street for as long as I can remember.

These faces were sprayed up all over town (perhaps all over the country) and then, two weeks later the explanation was added, in the form of the words "SENTENCED TO DIE" and "SAVETENZIN.ORG" stencilled below each one.

Good marketing from the crafty bhuddist types, there.
