Banksy in NYC

Yep, you guess it, "Ryan" came in for a haircut today. Walked out looking sharp as a tack. I'm a man of my word, so I have to honor my promise. It was good timing because I stumbled upon something a couple days before that I thought would be blog-worthy. I don't know how many of you follow "street art," but if you don't, let me introduce you to a British street artist named Banksy, who took the month of October to do an "artist in residency" in New York City. Now, street art is one of those delicate and controversial subjects that spawns many a debate. Is it art or is it vandalism? Are these folks geniuses or criminals? I, too am not free of the struggle of this complex dichotomy. I love to look at it, but I'm not sure I would like to have it show up on the side of my house. So, have a look, walk the fence, and regardless of which side you come down on, I think you'll find Bansky's NYC blog musings provocative.
