Elliott Smith Memorial Wall

I love Elliot LOVE ELLIOT.
I've always wanted to go to the Figure 8 memorial mural.
















Then some total cunt fucks gratified over it - seriously whoever did this - I hope you die in a car fire.














This past Saturday, August 6, was the birthday of late (He would have turned 42).  to celebrate the occasion, a group of anonymous artists touched up the iconic mural on a wall in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles that appears on the cover of Smith's 2000 album Figure 8. They also added a stencil of Smith standing where he appears on the album cover.

















THIS LOOKS SOOOOOOO FUCKIN AMATEURISH AND SHIT.
OMFG
HOW MESSY ARE THOSE LINES?
THAT STENCIL OF ELLIOT LOOKS LIKE SOME SHIT BANKSY ART.
THIS IS JUST GETTING DISRESPECTFUL.
THE GRAFFITI WAS BAD - BUT YOU NEVER  SHOULD HAVE HAVE PAINTED OVER PEOPLES MESSAGES.
THIS WHOLE THING DEPRESSES THE FUCK OUTA ME.

If anyone has got Gus Van Sant's number please call him and explain this needs to be redone by a professional  ASAP.
