  • Nice picture, on the Wikipedia "hobo" page... I was working on that page a little, a few weeks ago. It's a total mess and I just scratched the surface, but I keep watching and hoping someone else will improve it. That photo improves it for sure. Wish I knew enough about hobo history to write something decent there.

    (I had no idea who you were but then your Wikipedia username sorta matched the author name on the book you cited the picture to... and then I saw your same username here later that day. Googled up some of your other photos too. Awesome stuff.)

    It was good, one day read. The intro was by Penny Rimbaud was better than the main book, which makes sense, it's him looking back 25 years and reflecting on the politics of his 20's and the present (2008). His band Crass and that whole movement, is basically why STP even exists. Crass started the anarcho/crust punk movement, essentially. And now 40 years later, people are STILL getting that Crass logo tattooed! Amazing!

    I got it on Ebay for like $4.

    Jack Nance from Twin Peaks.

    Your Major Briggs sig made me think you might be a fan of the series.

    OH yeah! Theres a fish in the percolator. Twin Peaks!! Love the series.
    Long long ago when I rode the rails, this was THE answer given on what name to use for who or what:
    A guy who rode the rails - mainly in search of work - was a hobo.
    A guy who rode the rails - just for the thrill of going - was a tramp.
    A guy who didn't really ride the rails - but instead just sit in the Yard - was a bum.

    Hobos work, tramps dont. Thats my understanding of things. A bum is anyone that has ever hung out in an alleyway and felt at home.
    What up brutha! Nice avi, Soup is quite a photogenic fella.

    Oh that's great to hear. I remember years ago when he was on facebook he wrote a very angry rant, which was kind of my first impression of you but I could tell by the way it was written there was certainly another side to the story, so I took it with a grain of salt. Hung out with him in New Orleans for a bit, he's a good kid.

    Yes many sides to the story, we just partied in New Orleans, and it was great- we settled things.
