Friends, it’s about time that the NorCal Hobosoul branch got it’s feet on the ground and made a short film. And so, here we go. We’re gearing up to shoot at the end of February. I’m very excited – it’s an idea that my friend Andrew came up with and worked with DeAndra to get the shooting script onto the page.
We’ll shooting in North Oakland towards the end of the month, we’re gearing up and raising money to get it done right.
Check out our pitch video, love it, and visit dualitymovie.com or Indiegogo.com to see more about what is going. Or get involved. Really. That’s more fun than seeing it.
Good day everyone. And Happy Holidays. As our gift to you, we present The Steelwells’ This Dance Is Out Of Your Hands. It’s been a long road but we hope that after viewing it your cares will melt away and what will be left will only be enjoyment. Have a good New Year’s. More to come after the break.
Our latest video has us teaming up with Orange County natives The Gospels in the release of their song “Dance Decay”. The Gospels, based out of Fullerton CA, are straight forward rock-and-roll, straight from the garage. Check them out on Bennett Records along with a handful of other fantastic musicians. And, enjoy the video.

Like we said, a lot of stuff on the way. So, let’s kick things off with this commercial we did for an underwear company called Br4ss. We teamed up with Matt Rodgers Media to create this tale of a man being fitted for a pair of boxers by a sexy seamstress. Enjoy.
Hey everyone. So, it’s been a little while since we last spoke; we know, we know. But like most guys would, we are going to overlook the fact that we have been MIA and shower you with all the promises of what’s to come and hope that you forget all about the fact that we left you pining for a little Hobosoul.

On top of all these things, a new web design AND a brand new Hobosoul reel. It’ll be everything you’ve ever dreamed of…and more.
Today I was looking back thru old emails and blog drafts and came across a link from a hobo friend named Lloyd.
The Road Bandit – is basically what Vern and I set out to do when we started the Hobosoul, except that he’s actually doing it. 27 year old Randy Primm, native of Seattle, WA is on the road, videoing his whole experience. Editing periodic episodes, doing crazy stuff, all in a motorhome.
Why do I post this now, you ask? His latest episode (from July) delves into the “Master Cleanse” diet…one of the very hair-brained ideas that Vern and I thought would be good for us (plus hilarious) on camera. (Short description of the diet: you “eat” only a beverage made of fresh squeezed lemons, distilled water, grade B maple syrup and cayenne pepper, you drink (read: chug) a half gallon of warm salt water in the morning and a laxative tea at night). The difference between ours: for some reason, we thought that it’d be ok to drink wine while on the diet. Aftermath and great stories to come in the forthcoming Winnebago Experience documentary. You can catch up on the Road Bandit’s experience in the video below.
(Just a few more ramblings about my motorhome, please bear with me.)
For the first year of our marriage, my wife and I kept a journal. In it, we detailed what was happening, our experiences and thoughts/emotions/feelings about life and our new marriage. Now that we’re into our second year, we’ve gone back and have been reading entries from the year. Almost one year to the day, we read the entry of our last day in the Winnebago. I’ve copied it here for you. Read the rest of this entry »
The hobo’s life is and always has been about transition. Moving from one city to the next. Looking for work, finding work, working the job…and back to step one. You get the idea.
I sit here today a man in transition. A company in transition. A life in transition. Just over one year ago, my wife and I moved out of a 1973 Winnebago Chieftain that had been my home for close to five years. We transitioned from life in LA to life in Oakland.
One month ago, that Winnebago was sold. And with that, the Winnebago Experience officially comes to a close. At least, for now.
Some might say my nickname for this one is an easy one – but it’s the dual meaning of it that makes it. Perched proudly on the Powell Street peninsula, very near to the Emeryville Marina and with a clear view of the Golden Gate Bridge, the Bay Bridge and the city of San Francisco, this guy has picked the perfect spot. I’m sure the southerly winds keeps the foul, unwashed body scent and stale urine stink far away from this man’s humble home.
