Good for Nothin’ 2

graffiti Glen & Idaho

On Glen Avenue at Idaho Street, Pasadena.

graffiti FO & Tremont

On Fair Oaks Avenue at Tremont, Pasadena. Saw this one as I was getting off the bus.

Looks like the same perps as Good for Nothin’ 1. Seriously folks, I’m not driving or walking around TRYING to find this stuff. This is stuff I just HAPPEN TO SEE as I’m on my merry humbuggish way.

Now I need to check to see if any of this has been removed yet.


This is a personal blog. Expect a potpourri of stuff.

  1. I like that you are tuned in to this. This is all around here but it is filtered out of my vision like bad art. I don’t see it. Like so many things that take looking at a photograph to notice.

    My review: lacks innovation, boring, no shock value, no surprise, ordinary design concept, nondescript.

    Can’t we get better artists? Highland Park is full of them!

  2. Yes, it’s a symptom of the deeper problem.

    In the meantime, hopefully folks in Abatement know about the various resources on the Graffiti Hurts Web site:

    There are products for removal and other products that provide a protective coating. Also resources for teachers and other community members.

    I also have vague recollections of some local or area agency engaging the graffiti-producers — possibly Side Street Projects or Self Help Graphics?

    This blog’s readers may be interested in attending the 6 p.m. meeting of the Youth Development & Violence Prevention Committee at Robinson Park’s Multi-purpose Room. The good folks at the Flintridge Foundation are providing a light supper at 5 p.m. Our community’s young people have been invited to come speak and share their experiences of violence.
