What better way to take advantage of the weekend respite from rain than “using the original social media: chalk” (yeah, I didn’t know Facebook and calcium carbonate were equitable, either)? Straight from Zucotti Park comes this urgent message to legitimize the message: there’s no way the “traditional media” could possibly “ignore[ ], ridicule[ ] or demonize[ ]” chalk drawings, right?
As we all know, “nothing is more raw, more visceral than using rock on rock to communicate.” So, chalkers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your chains.
And remember, WesKids, “there’s something about sidewalk chalk that makes every passerby want to take a look.”
