I thought for sure this was taken by my pal Geoff Carter, but it turned up on the Flickr stream of “Defooliant,” so I don’t know for certain who shot it. But let me set up the scene for you: This was the Vegas Magazine anniversary party in 2007, at which time I was managing editor of Racket Magazine, a (much more rad) competing publication. And just six months earlier, I was an employee of the Greenspun Corporation, which publishes Vegas. So what did I do while enjoying a killer bash on my former employer’s dime? Totally tagged the temporary graffiti wall at the party with the Racket logo.
In case you needed a reminder of how badass I am.
