    Places You Hate Most

    Hate is a strong word, but generally speaking I stay away from Austin TX, Houston TX, Memphis TN, Chatanooga TN, and Ocala, FL. Generally, I'm not too big on FL or TX.

    RIP Yardsale

    Satan was given 30 years. Murder 2. The judge suspended 15 of it, so he may only serve 15.

    Heading out of Richmond -> West Coast

    Be careful in Roanoke. The yard is cursed, they have cameras, and the Bull is a bitch that likes to eat travelers for lunch.

    bandana thing.

    I agree. My bandanna is brown. I use it to keep sweat off my hands when I am playing music, tie my hair back, etc etc. I don't belong to any "crew" so to say.....I'm just me. People seem to take a lot of things WAY WAY overboard with the seriousness, and everything starts looking black no...

    FREE DIRT FILM, a project about taking traveling artists seriously.

    I think funding is the first hurdle. Cameras and directional mics that are easy enough on the weight for backpacks....

    FREE DIRT FILM, a project about taking traveling artists seriously.

    I figured I would start this thread. I guess the best way to describe this project is just to paste here what I have been posting as my fundraiser. I would love feedback, ideas, even criticism. This is not a scheme to make money, I don't plan on making any money at all. In fact, I plan on...

    The History of Playing The Spoons - SPOONOLOGY

    SPOONOLOGY - The History of Spoon Playing In America people usually associate the playing of spoons with the image of an old man on his front porch slapping a pair of spoons between his knee and his hand. Although this mental image is not completely inaccurate, there is much more to spoon...

    im a snitch

    You care about your friend, this is obvious. Sounds like he is hitting a rough patch. While you can't change people, you can at least attempt to be a positive influence. Sounds like you did the right thing in my opinion.

    Dear kids...

    Um, YOU were the one bitching to begin with.

    Dear kids...

    sorry, I just get angry.

    Dear kids...

    Busking IS WORK. Just because I play on the street doesn't make me any less of a musician than those who play in venues. I sell CDs, I have a website, I record other bands. BUSKING IS WORK and I EARN every penny. When you say it is not work you might as well be taking any and all the music...

    San Fran bans sitting, lieing, sleeping on side walks

    I was in Portland OR when they first put the NO SIT NO LIE law into effect, and then by chance I was also there when they deemed it UNCONSTITUTIONAL... I travel with a chair. I have trouble getting up and down from the sidewalk anyways. Does anyone know if a chair is ok? what about busking...
  22. Uncle Mom

    Might as well make a formal introduction *bow*

    I agree with wanting to earn a living. I also busk. The fact that you have a desire to earn your keep says a lot of good thing about you.

    Traveler friendly venues... Where to book gigs.

    So I figured I would start a thread about traveler friendly venues. If you know a venue that is friendly to traveling bands, post it here. Maybe this can help others along the way. I'll start: DINO'S RESTAURANT 411 Gallatin Avenue Nashville, TN (615) 227-8998 Dino's is one mile...

    Art or exploitation? I'm doing a photo project.

    I travel with a camera, and a portable 4 track, and microphones. I think of it as recording history... But, I am not looking to make money off of it.

    L.C. I am sorry you are so judgmental and narrow-minded. Maybe one day you can quit labeling people. Or maybe not. This thread is pretty shallow.

    whether or not he was an idiot is not the point. This thread is for those who were his friend, and if you don't have respect for that you shouldn't post here.

    Banjo Ben Shirley

    These are some videos and recordings of a buddy of mine, Ben. It was my first attempt to match up the video I took with my shitty camera to the audio off the 8 track. Opinions? Thumbs up or down?

    Hey, hi.

    I don't "Hate" them, but I do think that is is a little creepy that if they were big enough to eat you... they would.

    I've never had trouble. I usually stick to trains, but even then Baltimore is kinda blown up, and Richmond too because of Yardsale's death at the Acca YD.

    a housie and being ashamed?!

    I house up every winter. Not ashamed, just smart. Too old and tired for winter. If you're ashamed of living in a house then you must be really self-conscious. Nothing wrong with it at all. Who else is going to let me sleep on their floor/take showers/chk my email.... HOUSIES!!!!! THANK...

    Facebook is now officially evil.

    As scary as the information age is, I use FB. I've made money off of it, I keep tabs on my family (who otherwise seem to busy for me.) If the gov't wants to watch me, let them I have nothing to hide from them, anyone on FB, or anyone else.

    Heres my dilemma

    I agree. If you're going to do it then do it. Don't sit on a StP site and talk about this shit wearing a train rag and blah blah blah in your fucking picture if you need someone to hold your hand and tell you how. Seriously, dude. Grow balls, stick your shit in a home bum pack or whatever...

    Is this possible?

    The song is a bit creepy and soothing at the same time. It makes me feel a little funny. Maybe I should let this one digest before I give an opinion. I may like it... I don't know yet. maybe
