While I understand the sentiment here: "as much as I like that the artist wanted to paint a mural to beautify the city, I do not like the choice of picture. You have to take it in context...we have strip clubs everywhere, prostitutes, and men that are sex addicts in this neighborhood (and throughout Atlanta) and now we have to have a HUGE mural of like 6 different naked women on one of our main corners? I know it has meaning behind it and is done in a "tasteful" way but it still is too much for me and many people aren't going to look for the meaning behind it (shedding the animal within the artist told me) they will just see T & A."
I think maybe the concerned citizen should consider the social conditions and norms of repression that lead people to become 'sex addicts' in the first place. If we didn't treat people's naked bodies as this taboo subject then people wouldn't even be all that excited to see a naked body, the strip clubs would seem less special and people might be able to accept and cope with their natural urges as opposed to acting them out in unhealthy ways while others aren't looking. IDK, just a thought.
LOLOLOL what about the rest of us who are sick of reading these same comments at the end of every article involving Double Phantom?? If you spent less time venting on CL and more time making awesome music and getting out and meeting people and playing shows then maybe someone would be writing about your "shitty band" too.
