I just watched Exit through the Gift Shop today, a documentary film produced by legendary mystery street artist Banksy.

I'd seen some of his work before in photographs, but I forgot how awesome he was.

Here are his pieces from the wall separating the Jewish settlements from the Palestinians at the West Bank: http://arts.guardian.co.uk...

"Soldier: What the f*** are you doing?
Banksy: You'll have to wait until it's finished.
Soldier (to colleagues): Safety's off"

It's interesting that in many parts of England his graffiti is preserved as artwork while other graffiti artists have their work removed as "vandalism." see ===>

What do you think - is this art or vandalism?

Where do you stand on the Banksy hoax vs. "it's real" debate?

Hell, idk. Who am I?

I'd like to think it's real though. Seems more real than reality TV.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

In essence, the world is fucked up and you can either ignore it, become cynical or bitter about it.
