riding the rails.

there's this great section on hoboes in the used bookstore where i work. when i start making enuf $$$ i plan on buying a few of them.
i've been wanting to make an art piece based on bindle-sticks.
(Bindle stick - A walking stick, used by hobos, sometimes hand carved, and used to carry a bindle. The stick is also used to clear paths through dense brush or for protection. Oftentimes it is autographed as hobos meet one another during their travels.)
designer brand bindle-sticks. Versace, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Dior, Paul Frank, etc. I just thought that would be funny. For awhile, I was also toying with the notion of wandering and becoming an Executive Hobo. Tho' not Hobo in the typical sense... But one who travels by way of first class flights in posh trendy airlines, stays in uppercrust and equally posh hotels in sweet executive suites, working on animation/illustration freelance projects and films on the road, and receiving the occasional paycheck every once in awhile. the only thing really hobo of me would be if i had enough courage to cook beanie-weenies out in the parking lot of said grand hotels.
ah, dreams...
maybe someday eh?
