    Default Werner Herzog graffiti everywhere

    What is the deal with this? It's everywhere after New Years. Most of them say "I believe in Werner Herzog" or "Werner Herzog believes in the Mummers".
    I saw it once before a while back, but now its up and down south street, Broad street and across the neighborhood. I haven't seen it yet outside Graduate Hospital, recently but I believe I saw it somewhere else in west Philly.

    Do they ever put effort into figuring out who the tags belong to?

    A local hipster chode has written this essay, which sounds like a statement of intent but could be just his crummy, allegedly imaginative interpretation.

    Fantastic. Do the police or 311 or anyone follow up on this? I imagine this is creating a ton of work with graffiti removal because it's everywhere. I assume "Sang Bleu" is not going to reveal the identity of the author.

    Actually the author's identity is pretty clear. He just never actually says, "I did this" (and it's possible he didn't).

    He should tag, "I believe in Darrell Clarke". that would be some funny sh*t.

    Werner is gonna tag the wrong property where the owner catches him and it's gonna be 'Werner Hertzog takes a beating'. This is probably the work of some mal adjusted white boy hipster whose mommy didn't pay enough attention to him.

    There are tags on the brick facades of some 19th century townhomes on Pine.

    Nice work dude. You are so deep.

The tagging is probably done between 3 and 5 in the AM when the loser should be asleep to get up for work.

    This is art maaaaan. Part of the rich urban experience. You should photograph it, post it on your Facebook and brag about the Philly culture.
