Man scrawls sexually explicit graffiti on pub’s wall bragging of romp – but …

Philip Smith thoroughly enjoyed himself on a night out in a Dublin pub.

After taking part in a boozed-up romp with a fellow punter, he decided to share his joy with the world.

Taking out his black marker, he took to the pub’s wall to brag about the steamy romp.

He wrote: “Philip Smith had sex in here, f***** love this pub.”

However, his elation has quickly turned to embarrassment after staff issued a hilarious response.

Pub staff response to graffiti
Hilarious: Philip may feel a little red-faced after seeing their response

Next to Philip’s boast of having sex, they wrote: “We know you did Philip, but in the 20 seconds it took us to fetch the doorman you had finished!!!”

Ouch.

Insist that your child wear a helmet while skateboarding – Daily Journal

DEAR DOCTOR K: Last week my 14-year-old daughter fell while skateboarding. She hit the back of her head and was dazed and had blurry vision for a few seconds. But she felt fine once she sat down and rested a bit. Now the left side of her head hurts, but otherwise she feels normal. Should she see a doctor?

DEAR READER: Yes, she should. In a child, particularly, it is often hard to know when trauma to the head may have caused a brain injury. That’s why you should never ignore a head injury, no matter how small it seems.

It may sound like I’m overreacting. After all, children bump their heads all the time. And in most cases, this results in nothing more than minor bumps, bruises or cuts in the scalp.

But sometimes head trauma can cause more serious injuries, like a concussion. The skull — the bony globe that surrounds and protects the brain — is hard. But the brain is as soft as Jell-O. A head injury can cause the soft brain to forcefully bang against the hard skull. When that happens, the hard bony shell that was built to protect the brain injures the brain instead.

Concussions in children are serious. A concussion can cause:

— Headache

— Neck pain

— Nausea or vomiting

— Dizziness or vertigo

— Hearing loss

— Blurred or double vision

— Fatigue

— Irritability, anxiety or change in personality

— Loss of memory

— Confusion

— Difficulty concentrating or slowing of reaction time

— Brief loss of consciousness

Symptoms often happen right away, and go away within minutes to hours. But sometimes children have symptoms that last for several days, weeks or even months.

The most important thing to do after suffering a concussion is to avoid situations that could cause another head injury. That’s why it’s important to take a break from physical and even mental activity. If your daughter has a concussion, her doctor might recommend that you:

— Adjust your child’s schedule and schoolwork.

— Excuse your child from gym class, recess and sports.

The pediatrician will let you know when it’s OK for her to return to normal activities.

In addition, watch your child closely. Sometimes the injury that caused a concussion can cause bleeding into the brain. Tell the pediatrician if symptoms get worse, come back, last too long, or if your child’s behavior changes. These are clues that something is not right.

Finally, in the future, insist that your daughter wear a helmet for skateboarding, biking or any other riding activity. Nothing is more important in protecting her from a brain injury. Some brain injuries last a lifetime. Some, even, are fatal. Helmets save brains, and lives.

Meet 5SOS Graffiti Man, The Guy You Watched Paint Online For 2 Hours – MTV

Man One never knew that working with 5 Seconds of Summer would make him an Internet meme. But after he painted for an hour and a half in a mysterious live stream on the band’s website, he now has his own Facebook group, fan Twitter account and a nickname: the “braided one.”

That name comes from a section of the 5SOS Fam in Italy, who fancied his hairstyle while he was spray-painting a brick wall to reveal the single art for “She’s Kinda Hot” for millions of fans to see. But just a week earlier, the artist — who started graffitiing the streets of Los Angeles in 1987 and founded his Man One company in 1994 — had no idea he’d be so popular with teens on Twitter. 5SOS’ crew only called him with the gig offer last Friday, five days before the single announcement, and they kept everything top secret, telling him that he couldn’t even show his 15-year-old daughter the design he’d be painting.

“They sent me the image the day before so I could buy all my paint and get the right colors,” Man One told MTV News, calling from L.A., where he’d done the painting. “It was very hush-hush.”

He wasn’t familiar with the Australian band until he asked his daughter — “She’s my go-to music person for anything current,” he said. “And she was like, ’Oh yeah, I totally know who they are.’ The first thing she asked me is, ’Are you going to meet the band?’”

Man didn’t get to meet Michael, Ashton, Calum or Luke. In fact, he didn’t even know where they were. “I didn’t know if they were in town, I didn’t know if they were next door, I didn’t know if they were going to come out and meet me. I had no idea about anything like that,” he said.

These Rare 5SOS Tour Posters Are Hotter Than Michael’s Hairy Legs

Man, wearing a black hoodie, started by drawing an outline on the wall, and fans watched as he slowly painted the band’s name and the rest of the design, which was later revealed as 5SOS’ new single. But as the minutes ticked by, he started to become a celebrity in his own right. Even after the art was finished, fans started photoshopping his head on cartoons and dubbing him “treccina,” or “the braided one,” in Italian.

“It’s insane,” he said. “I had no idea how dedicated they are. They’re blowing up my Instagram like crazy. This is the most feedback, comments, most followers I’ve gotten on a single thing ever.”

He says he and his daughter are having fun with all the feedback, and laughing at all the memes people are coming up with.

“They’re posting all these funny ass pictures and memes of me. I’m on Nicki Minaj, on a banana,” Man said. “And then there’s a fake Twitter page about me now. It says 5SOS Graffiti Man and that guy on Twitter already has more followers than I do on Twitter. I have 13- and 14-year-old boys and girls following me from all over the world, like ’We love you. This is awesome.’”

The performance reached more than a million views at one point, but Man wouldn’t have known. Even though he’s done live performances before for the Warped Tour and MTV (yours truly), he couldn’t tell he had an audience this time.

“When I paint in front of a crowd, it’s a performance, not just painting,” he said. “In this situation, I was restrained by a couple different things: 1. there was no audience so I couldn’t vibe off of that, 2. I was getting cues on how long it should take me to paint.”

There was a small crew on set telling Man to take longer to build up hype. He says he could’ve finished in an hour, but he also could’ve taken much more time on it — “They told me to slow down or speed up. I could’ve tweaked it more and gone in and really detailed everything.”

But in the end, the 5 Seconds of Summer fans got their announcement. And while Man One already has a perfectly cryptic name, to those who were watching that day, he’ll always be 5SOS Graffiti Man.

Alleged San Francisco graffiti tagger appears in court

SAN FRANCISCO (KTVU) – One of San Francisco’s most prolific alleged graffiti taggers is waiting to see if he’ll stand trial on 35 counts of vandalism, including 11 felonies.

Andrew Yarbrough is believed to be responsible for the tags “Cryst” and “Sheep” that span the city and have caused more than $50,000 damage to public and private property.

“This really affects people in a serious and severe way,” said District Attorney spokesman Alex Bastian. “This is something they have to deal with on a daily basis.”

The tags have been seen from Treasure Island to the Avenues.

In a preliminary hearing on Thursday, prosecutor Kathleen McBride presented evidence of the graffiti and Yarbrough’s alleged guilt, including a March 12th KTVU report where Yarbrough appears to explain the meaning of his alleged graffiti. “Cryst means crystal meth,” Yarbrough can be heard telling KTVU reporter, Amber Lee. “And sheep means conformist gentrification and all that other (expletive).”

A series of police officers and investigators testified in the daylong preliminary hearing that is expected to be completed Friday. They showed evidence taken from Yarbrough’s home, including nine cans of spray paint, markers, and a computer containing photos of his alleged vandalism.

“It’s costing the taxpayers a lot of money to go out and abate the graffiti time, after time, after time,” explained Jimmer Cassiol of San Francisco Public Works. “It seemed like whoever this ‘Chryst’ was, was basically following our crews. As they were cleaning up the walls of graffiti, another tag would go up.”

That’s why Public Works wants Yarbrough to face felony charges. “We want to make sure a message is sent out,” explained Cassiol, “that if you’re going to come to San Francisco and you’re going to vandalize San Francisco with graffiti, that’s not the place you’re going to want to do it because you’re going to pay for doing it.”

Yarbrough’s preliminary hearing is expected to wrap up on Friday.

Former Graffiti Vandal’s Art On Display At Local Salon | News – KEYT


SANTA BARBARA, Calif. –

A young man once considered a prolific graffiti vandal is displaying his art at a local salon.

25-year-old Shayne Tuthill was arrested in 2010 for graffiti vandalism in Santa Barbara County.

He served time in jail, paid restitution and cleaned-up graffiti, but his past still haunts him.

“I started doing graffiti when I was young. It started from drawing my name on a piece of paper in class in elementary school. I found myself drawing and these drawings turned into drawings on buildings and from there I just got this thrill of it,” Tuthill.

Tuthill was raised by a single mom who had to work a lot of hours.

“It spawned from not having a lot of attention at home and growing up with a dysfunctional family. Something I needed was attention and I didn’t get it at home,” said Tuthill.

Since his arrest, Tuthill has poured everything into his art and stayed out of trouble.

Tuthill found a fan in a local salon owner.

“I recognized Shayne’s work seeing it on buildings, different fences, bridges and whatever it was.  I did recognize that but when I found out he had been arrested, I said, ‘not only is the art great but the story behind the art is even greater,’ said Claudio.

Claudio displays art from local artists and rotates the displays every three months.

Claudio decided to give Tuthill a chance.

“I love his art. I love his vision and I think he’s turned it into a real great success story” Claudio said.

Tuthill still paints with spray paint, but now he also uses a brush.

“What I like about it and being able to paint is you have full freedom compared to if you are out on the streets doing graffiti you are taking some risks” Tuthill said.

An article from Tuthill’s 2010 arrest hangs close to his work in Claudio’s salon-a reminder of his past and his determination to keep moving forward.

The public is invited to see Tuthill’s art at the Walter Claudio Salon.

The address is 11 West Figueroa Street in Santa Barbara.

Graffiti at apartment complex worrisome for some | New Mexico News – KOAT …

Many had no idea what graffiti on the outside of Jefferson Crossing Apartment buildings meant, but some had a guess: gangs.

An Albuquerque police spokesperson said officers don’t know if it can be tied to a gang. No one in apartment management would comment or confirm if the complex has had issues with gang members in the past.

“People get concerned when they see graffiti in their neighborhood,” said Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office Gang Unit Sgt. Brandon Blackmon.

He said graffiti can mean all kinds of different things, and the best way to figure out if the markings are artistic expression or gang related is to call law enforcement.

“It’s something we’re constantly battling,” Blackmon said.

He said it’s important for parents to know who their kids are hanging out with and what they’re up to.

Ambridge skateboarding park to reopen


0 comments

AMBRIDGE — The skateboarding park in the borough will be reopened.

The skate park off 11th Street behind the municipal building was closed last year after a resident complained about safety, but council approved the reopening Tuesday. The park is expected to reopen this week, Ambridge Manager Joe Kauer said.

The borough’s insurance carrier conducted a safety inspection and declared it was safe and accessible, he said.

Community Blog by PS FNF // PS Friday Night Fights: More Skateboarding Edition

I feel like I’ve gone a little bit head over heels for skating again and it’s a bit too much. At some point this is going to have to die down (not out though!) because other more important shit will come along. I’ve already had skating interrupt two friend’s birthday’s and that’s not cool. And now it’s getting in the way of my working out, with a fucked up wrist I can’t put a lot of pressure on I won’t be able to do my workout routine today and maybe even tomorrow. Sigh but as Louis CK said, for now weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Seriously it’s fun and I’m not ashamed at doing what I want to do which includes getting angry at cats who keep my up all night so I won’t be able to wake up proper and go to the best skatepark in town for 6am (seriously cats suck about this and if you venture down to the basement you’ve probably seen me bitching about them) but fuck that I did it now. Fun fact: skateparks are desolate in the early hours of the morning, that seems to be when a lot of professional skaters go to parks and spots to film too. That way they don’t get bothered and whatnot. But for the layman noob like myself it’s just great to have all that space to do whatever you like. I could dry hump the beautiful manny pad for all anyone cares or can do about it. Seriously I love this park’s manny pads. Just the right height, and at about 30 feet long it gives you a nice challenge to try to get all the way through. There’s also a smaller and shorter one that’s good for practicing on. But point is, if I made a skatepark it’d be all manny pads of different sizes and variety, and ramps to get speed for those said manny pads. Manny pads yo.

One thing I really like about skateboarding and how the atmosphere has changed since I stopped skating last time is how friendly everyone is now. Any skate park or spot where there are other skaters they will be talking and inviting you for conversation. It’s a great opportunity to make new friends and also talk about all sorts of shit. That deck your riding, what size is that? Did you see the new Enjoi video, I can’t find it online. You’re not ollie-ing properly, here’s what you should be doing. All sorts of shit. It’s cool to have people to talk to about the thing you both enjoy and I swear it was never like this for me before. Maybe it’s that I’m older and no one wanted to talk to a teenager way back when but that can’t be it either. It’s gotta be then that skateboarding is just this meritocracy: you show up every day to the same park/spot and don’t give up, they’ll like you. You have to keep skating even when you ate it and your arm hurts like hell, try again. There’s a certain respect for that, even if you aren’t Daewon Song or Rodney Mullen or Chris Cole or Riley Hawk or Tony Hawk, and that’s what I respect most about this sport and what will probably destroy my body. Oh well.

So what else do we have to talk about? I like Eric Andre. Watch this video and then this one.

Oh speaking of cats you know what’s awesome when a cool cat shows his/her face to FNF and suddenly you have new blood to play with an awesome game you love/haven’t seen on FNF in awhile. See the first image below but that finally happened for me, Krigo and I will be lobby hosting Virtua Fighter 5: Final Showdown and he’ll probably butt stomp me but it will be fun. We played Daytona USA last time and that was a blast too. Also speaking of games I haven’t mp’d in awhile with anyone.. But also Phil and I need to do some Starhawk sometime. Shit is good and I know I’ve been telling him we should FNF it for ages now. Note to self, FNF Starhawk. I need to pick up the new Mortal Kombat too so I can get wrecked by Phil and whoever else, seriously it’s a bit of a disgrace to not have that FNF’d here yet, just saying.

Lastly on the menu tonight I love me some YS there’s no lying about that. I finally got to starting Origins (gifted to me by awesome Ooktar!) and it’s a thrill to be playing that. Seriously since Celceta I’ve not found another RPG that gets close to the feeling I get playing this game. Celceta was so good I just want a new Ys game or even Celceta ported to PS4 but until then I can go back to the already released ones. Origins is almost everything I loved about playing Celceta: goooood story/interesting characters, killer soundtrack, awesome combat that isn’t turn based like a lot of other JRPGs, lovely art style. It’s the perfect package for me save for one thing and that is that I do not want to be playing this on a PC keyboard. Bleh. It works so poorly this game was clearly made for a controller but playing it (and coupled with my now bad wrist) I feel like it’s going to give me carpal tunnel. But still I play it. I will need to look into if it has controller support on steam. If not give up and wait for it to be ported to Playstation. No I’m kidding but controller support would be just peachy if otherwise totally unlikely.

I guess a better title for this blog would’ve been “I love to do shit that hurts myself”.

Oh well on to games.

Supreme x Nike Skateboarding GTS

Supreme

The team up of Nike and Supreme have always been a sure-shot and the “can’t miss” collaborators are back once again with another bullseye. This time, they’ve got their sights set on a skate shoe that could definitely use a little more time in the spotlight: the Nike Skateboarding GTS.

The Nike Skateboarding GTS is one of those models that could easily be eschewed by the uninitiated but slap a Supreme logo on it and the world takes notice. With a comfy canvas build and beefy vulcanized rubber outsole, the sneaker is set to come in five colorways but all of the insoles will be red because Supreme. All of the shoes also sport Supreme hangtags as well as gold stitched branding in the back for maximum stunting.

These kicks are set to release to all Supreme locations on July 16 except for Japan, which gets theirs on July 18. That means you probably want to go line up in front of the store right now to ensure that you get a pair.
