The man accused of being Poster Boy - a notorious subway vandal who turns platform ads into biting social commentary with the stroke of a razor - thumbed his nose at Brooklyn prosecutors yesterday and turned down a deal that would have kept him out of jail. Henry Matyjewicz, 27, rejected an arrangement in which he would plead guilty to the top charge of criminal mischief, a misdemeanor, and perform 100 hours of community service. Instead, he'll be back in court in April to face the possibility of trial, which could land him in jail for up to a year. -ALEX GINSBERG NY Post

Jim Jarmusch

Nothing is Original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination. Devour old films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, bridges, street signs, trees, clouds, bodies of water, light and shadows. Select only things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. If you do this, your work (and theft) will be authentic. Authenticity is invaluable: originality is non-existent. And don't bother concealing your thievery - celebrate it if you feel like it. In any case, always remember what Jean-Luc Godard said: "It's not where you take things from - it's where you take them to."
-Jim Jarmusch
