An award-winning news site covering the East Village of NYC
Originally the message was rendered in the Data 70 font, which we old folks remember from 70s sci-fi movies and graphics. Another tagger was rude enough to completely obscure the original stencil. So i guess it was reworked with sloppy white letters as a push back. This graffito is by OTTO.

The future totally fucking sucks!

Yeah, it did. But there's hope...It's much better in Indiana
Wait a minute. The future sucked? Did I miss it? Can we start over? I was slightly overwhelmed by my busy text-messaged life (well, what we call a life). But s
Guess I'll just stay right here then. :(
Another tagger was rude enough to completely obscure the original stencil.Yup. The future indeed sucked.
Bliss is in the present moment.
I might take this seriously.
