This got out of hand. Quickly. After the THIRST podcast I got a call from another local artist here in St. Pete who wanted to counter some of the qualms that were voiced on the show. Absolutely, I want to hear what everyone has to say. Derek Donnelly stopped by earlier this week and we had a chat about the art scene, his counter to THIRST. He gave THIRST a lot of props for being one of the originators of the scene and it was pretty civil for the most part. It sounded like the axe was on it's way to being buried and it was time to move on from this whole beef. Then the mural defacement's started happening. Most of them being THIRST's own work, some not.
I don't know. The vandal remains at large. Over $10,000 dollars in damage and now the St. Pete Policy are asking for help in finding the perpetrator. So. Yea. I don't know. Everyone involved is staying pretty quiet. Derek said I could release the episode after he sent me pictures of his defaced van:
These are all allegations. No one knows exactly who is doing this, although people think they have a pretty good idea. All I know is that it's just a flat out shame. Look for a future podcast with Derek soon on HMBradio.com.
Anyhoo, my buddy, comic and writer Zac Townsend came by to talk about some of this craziness going on, the language police are angry with comic Tom Segura over some language in his last Netflix special so we dive into that and finish up with some good Ol' Fashioned Poop Stories.
