Yeah I saw this and others when I was looking for resources to advertise in and yeah it's a handbag line here with some artsy articles interspersed. I actually saw several things on internet that incorporated "hobo" into their "chic" stuff. At least when you look at goth or dominatrix or even "grunge" stuff you know what you're getting into. So (term only) "Hobo" is reaching high fashion chic ...

seems like a logical conclusion. I feel like the train hopper/oogle image has been pretty well co-opted by alternative, youth culture in general. Like I was in Boston the other day and Beacon yards been closed for what like 5 years now? You'll see kids walking around sporting this look, like they just hopped off a coal car! So you know, Madison Aves always watching!

Who's next on the chopping block? Parisian designers got in HUGE trouble a few years back when they unveiled "Homeless Chic/Derelicte"...Is there any subculture which cannot be subsumed by capitalists?

I think so. Centenarians. They have their own funky style noone else could ever appropriate. Buicks. HoverRounds. Suppositories. Pomeranians. Prune juice. Lawrence Welk. The constant threat of death....Oh wait. That sounds sexi AF.

I'm not sure what the young people are up to nowadays. But I personally enjoy the flexibility and sensual qualities of Lycra, whether hopping a freight or hitchin outa Santa Fe.

Support StP!

Donations go towards paying our monthly server fees, adding new features to the website, and occasionally putting a burrito in Matt's mouth.

Total amount
$100.00
Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    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 his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    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
    $100.00 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.

So, here's something great! After finally saying NO to eating carbs and sugar this morning (since that's mostly all there is to eat at home) and instead bought and ate vegetables, I actually don't have cravings anymore!

All I've eaten today is two sweet potatoes and some broccoli, and I don't have any food cravings, and I'm not lethargic!
