Send me a message when you open the page for comments.

Good stuff!

I respect that.  Grandmaster Taijay's art has my respect and his topics are

timely.  President Obama does need some strong voices.  I'm with all that!

Comment by Purple Piranha Artist Group yesterday

Purple Piranha Artist Group does not agree with plagiarism in any form.

"A person who pretends to be something that they are not...

will all ways (in all ways) be inferior to who they really are"

-Grandmaster Taijay

Mr J.R.J Sr,  you have googled:

"The Art And Poetry Of Grandmaster Taijay,"  and clicked on some of

his art.   You really may want to read what he wrote to you again;

Purple Piranha Artist Group is not the "crew" that he is talking about.

When you go back to,  listen to Bod Dylan-pos/4th street.

Comment by Mr.J.R.J Sr. yesterday

To Grandmaster Taijay,  

Don't you ever stay in one spot loing?

I want to get down on that president Obama thing, but  how can it be closed so fast?    I used my words with your words!  We Vets have to roll together.   How can I get togther with the purple piranha group?

Did you know that there's a huge purple piranha organization?

Those cats raise them.   Lunch time and I'm going!  Stay Strong!

Peace and Blessings to everyone who reads this...I'm in the media center

of the building in which my studio is located...I started thinking about the

rough treatment that Our President Obama..."Our" means those of us who are

kindred spirits...dig the h_ that this man and his family are going through

is AMAZING that so people...well...let me use the true universal's

amazing that we are silent...we have become so jaded that now..." it's just the

madness of hate and envy" has become the basic reaction...I feel like

secure'n a permit to walk from the tip of Manhattan to 125th Street...

holding a huge sign in front of my face (in order to focus on the sign and 

not the person...or person's... holding the sign...or the people holding the

signs and...with a police escort...and...a valid permit...the people holding



I'm listen'n to Lonnie Listen Smith's Expandsions...before that I started

the morning off with Marvin Gaye's What's Going On (the entire release) are direct-lee un-da my direct owner-

ship and control...Purple Piranha Artist Group is composed of positive

people in my building...Peace and Hair Grease (yes, yes, Dixie Peach, baby!
