Mostly True (third edition) is the print culmination of, by now, 36 years of obsessive rail culture documentation, collection, and culture jamming by filmmaker and artist Bill Daniel. The book is an ongoing “archive practice” that has followed the completion of his influential 2005 experimental/documentary film on hobo lore and moniker graffiti, Who is Bozo Texino?

Using the template of a vintage rail magazine, this “operative metaphor,” as Daniel calls the method of Mostly True, allows the book to seamlessly combine historical and contemporary material. The result demonstrates the real cultural continuum of the folkloric, labor, and art traditions of 100 years ago through the contemporary communities of graffiti, punk, and art.

Creator and editor Bill Daniel has pulled new material from his milkcrate archives in his studio down in the Texas oil patch, and has solicited new photographs, drawings, and stories from his train-obsessed artist friends. The new edition will be comprised of about 70% new material, with some of the most essential elements of the original book included again.

  1. Paying the Bills

    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $10.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $10.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $10.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
