borf, we hardly knew ye

I was ambivalent about his antics before, but today's Post writeup made me realize that I'm going to miss Borf. His politics were pretty silly (or at least unclear), but the revelation that the iconic Jerry O'Connell stencil is actually a portrait of a dead friend gives his superficially-goofy work a bit more heft.

If nothing else, the guy had style. Too bad he turned out to be commuting into the city from Great Falls.


It's easy to be an anarchist when your parents are paying the bills.

true. most graffiti-inclined anarchists don't produce work as interesting as borf's, though. the various "yuppies out of shaw" and anarchist symbols around my neighborhood are evidence enough of that.
