Hezbollah and Banksy

Sarah Silverman's boyfriend has a cute bit about Hezbollah (and, really, the never-to-be-underestimated ignorance of the average American):



and my favorite line from this British grafitti artist who's been tagging that big wall in Palestine is (in his adorably eastenders accent) "I love Palestine - all the giant walls, the dirt and all the falafel stalls remind you of Glastonbury."

    funny quote. but i wouldn't really say that guy had an east end accent.. and it wasn't banksy talking, he never lets his voice be used and he is from bristol anyway, so would have a horrible chavvy westcountry accent.

    east end accents are the best though. x

    hey clarus-

    well i really revealed my ignorance of accents there, sorry. i was surprised that he was on camera talking, i guess with good reason... are you a fan of his 'street art'? i don't know it that well, though i know he's like the premier graf artist in the uk.

    he is kind of looked down on a bit by, like, hipster people.. partly due to the rather sanctimonious natures of his work, and also the fact that he has 'sold out' somewhat, now trading in prints of his work and coffee table books.. i've not actually ever seen any of his stuff in the flesh/brick, but i think he's ok. more interesting and decorative than porrly executed mindless tags, at least.
