Agent Schrader

Each city has its own duality, and New York has its own paradoxical contradiction.

I met agent Schrader at the Improv Class in Magnet Training Center. Schrader is a bald headed, middle age white male with odd Hip Hop outfit which made him look like a British National Front member in pink.

Agent Schrader’s high energy and boisterous nature reminded me of Dean Norris in the tv series Breaking Bad.

Agent Schrader represents the paradoxical New York city: I am amazed by New Yorker’s capacity of being extremely friendly and at the same time being ludicrously offensive.

I like the friendliness of this city. In here, everyone is your dude or bro, even you don’t even know each other.

Yet, underneath the pleasant atmosphere, agent Schrader likes to add some direct provocation in the sentence such as ‘go back to learn some English bro!’ or ‘is your name chin chong chin?’ which left you in astonishment.

Then he maintained ‘I’m just joking with you, dude.’

I never really understand the true meaning of this—is it out of some kind of unknown physical desire that driving Schrader to pick up a fight—or he simply likes the idea of being outrageous?

Subsequently, I called him a fat-ass white trash, and then said ‘I’m also joking, dude.’

At the moment, agent Schrader’s smile froze and gave me a kind of chilling look—the kind of look that normally follows a cheerful punch in the face.

That was one of the longest moments in my life, I realized the inavailability of physicality makes a person weak. In this occasion, you know you can’t win, both vocally and physically.

Finally, Agent Schrader burst out an uneasy laugh, shook my shoulder and said: ‘this is a funny guy, isn’t it?’  I laughed, too, out of my sincere happiness.

Until now, I still don’t get used to confrontation.

給所有來自過去與未來的人,

這個故事得由過去說起,在2006-2009年之間,以Bbrother為代號,我在台北市街頭進行了四年的塗鴉行動,這個網誌的主要功用,主要作為那時歲月的記錄,關於Bbrother,如有興趣可以看維基百科之解釋:
Bbrother(1982年-),本名張碩尹,是台灣的塗鴉藝術家。Bbrother的號稱,取自歐威爾小說《一九八四》中的「老大哥」(Big Brother)。自2005年開始塗鴉,Bbrother充滿政治意識的模板大量出現在台北街頭,內容從反全球化、反威權、反戰到聲援楊儒門、挺樂生等。並數度為媒體焦點與話題人物。其早期以模板為主,黑白的創作方式…(不過維基這種東西,真的是看看就好)

關於當時的大部分作品,請見此連結:

與 相關報紙資料剪貼集

在那四年短暫卻又混亂的時期,同時間也陸陸續續與參與與主辦了數個活動:

1. 垃圾展:大學最後一年主要學科被刷掉之後的自辦畢業展,又稱「廣告系落選展」(2005).
2. 上山打游擊:在政大的塗鴉行動,與之後所謂的「塗鴉爭議」(2005).
3. 廢墟佔領:在台北市愛國西路上,曾由一群大學生共同佔領了舊台鐵宿舍,並在其中嘗試舉辦影展、展覽、與創立工作室(2006-2007),現為二十四小時自助停車場.
4. 以物易物市集:在以台北市公館為中心,曾舉辦四次以物易物市集,市集內禁用金錢,並且可由勞務交換物品.

最後,這個故事以未來結束,基於人生作為流水般不斷推進、變幻之關係,本網站與本人已不再使用Bbrother發表新作品.
