well, technically he just missed our (TET's) set as we were cut short, but he DID like our buttons. Let's assume that he's wearing one of his TET fish buttons right now :)
"first of all" you clearly don't understand my humor. how anyone could consider 1.7 gajillion an honest to god statistic is beyond me, i was being emphatically absurd. please excuse my levity. i hope this brain teaser didn't cause you too much distress.
and I'm not defending my dissertation, so i'm totally comfortable using urban dictionary as a resource for defining modern colloquialisms, thanks. i was merely attempting to clue you in to the joke. this was obviously a failed endeavor.
good luck with all of your land holdings.
your statistic for a city of less than a million is completely absurd.
why are people defending this person? Ernest Doty specifically? because, like i said earlier, he's a valued and productive member of our community. And what if he's not guilty of this crime which he is accused of committing?
or how about the fact that our city has 1.7 gajillion (actual statistic) convicted drunk driver repeat offenders that get to take part in society until they finally murder someone with their addiction, while this particular "crime" has someone facing YEARS in federal prison. Doesn't that disparity beg questioning?
the priorities of our leadership need to be questioned. that is our job, as members of the community, to voice those concerns.
I've been loving those rainbows! They honestly brighten our community, and I've often marveled at the skill in both paint control, and acrobatics it must take to pull those off. AND no ugly signature, it's not about gangs claiming territory, or public defacement, it's about public ENHANCEMENT. It's a gift that I have thoroughly enjoyed receiving.
Now as for Ernest Doty, the man is a pillar of the Albuquerque art scene. He has been an important figure for years through his work with CIRQ, public mural projects, a clothing line, and gallery showings. I honestly never knew if the rainbows were his doing, but I suppose I just don't care. The real crime here as that we might now be losing a vital member of the local arts community. Someone who cares enough to bring culture to the people through a variety of completely legal channels.
APD wasing resources to track down the most inoffensive public artist around??? sounds like par for the course, and absolutely wrong headed. Why don't we spend money taking care of ACTUAL PROBLEMS? This city has plenty.
