I was driving along Park Ave. with my mom, on the way to a quiet lunch at one of the innoffensive eateries that she enjoys, when I turned to look at the infamous grafitti magnet...the railroad bridge over Park and Ridgeway (across from M.U.S.). I burst out at a sloppily done "I LOVE TO TEAR UP PUSSY!!" and couldn't bring myself to answer my mom's "what's so funny?"

Oh, that wasn't that long ago, which means I'm pretty sure I'd passed the age of 30 when it occured.

...and just to the right with a 'X' thru it..."Superman Jaws."

I kind of liked the one I saw at a rest stop years ago on the way to New York that simply stated... " I rape children"

This guy didn't beat around the bush. Well, I guess he did but it was very young bush.

at the Buc -

'I sucked Rob Zombie's dick in this stall."

(No, I did not write it.)

But my all time favorite bathroom stall graffiti was at the old Perkins in downtown Nashville:

"God is dead."
~ Nietzsche

then directly below it:

"Nietzsche is dead."
~ God

The Toad Hall Penis is still my fave (mostly because it appeared in the Memphis Business Journal)

I know the culprit on that one. My fav bathroom graf is "give your gifts freely to the world and one day god will repay you...and someone wrote next to it "and fuck your mom." Also there's a tagger called jazz that writes "that's enough jon mayer" And the time my friend was putting up flyers that said 6-6-06 with a guy with a bandana over his face and some people from a church near buy tagged it with pics of jesus.

I remember this. Best ever. I drove by it every morning on my way to work and it made me happy.

"give your gifts freely to the world and one day god will repay you...and someone wrote next to it "and fuck your mom."

"Superman Dam Fool"

I knew that sounded familiar...

http://blogs.commercialappeal.com/beifuss/archives/2006/10/the_indie_m emph_2.html

In creating "Nobody," Murphey and Spearman - despite their newspaper background - weren't sticklers for documentary authenticity; the movie contains recreated scenes and staged inserts, although these non-photojournalistic images aren't as revealingly stylized as they are in the documentaries of Errol Morris, for example. Originally, "Nobody" was 90 minutes long and titled "Superman Dam Fool" after a famous bit of Memphis graffiti; the shorter edit is tighter and more coherent and certainly more audience-friendly, but in a way I miss the longueurs of the feature-length version, which seemed to more accurately recapitulate the Jerry Bell experience - the sense of rounding mysterious bends on a journey toward the unknown and losing oneself in uncharted mental territory.
