Culture on the Cheap
Crosstown Local Cavalcade Volume XI: REPENT!
This week I decided to see what was shaking at the Nassau Avenue stop of the G train. It has been my experience that this station sports some of the more provocative subway poster desecration to be found in Brooklyn —and very well— the city at large. What I found was interesting alright, but not in the manner I have grown to expect.
I have seen a lot of missives scrawled on this poster. Most of them lament the erosion of our civil liberties. This poster too sports a lamentation. Albeit one of a slightly different caliber.
I call this piece “Of Love And The D.E.A.”
This isn’t to suggest there wasn’t any anti-corporate rhetoric to be found. There was.
And last up, what would getting religion on the Crosstown Local be without a mention of the Dark Prince? It doesn’t strike me as being a very effective policy to admonish people about the anti-Christ on the G line. Even if we were disposed to do something about him, it would take us too long to get moving.
Or maybe that is the point? This poster actually reads “GGG”!
