How much do panhandlers really make? Can you possibly make a living at this? How much of a difference does a funny sign make? Will people give to a guy in a banana suit? Does every sign have to say "God Bless?" Important questions. I aim to find the answers. Give me a dollar. God Bless.

The Trailer



Okay, now you've seen it, peer on over at them donate buttons on the right. C'mon, you know you want to be a "producer" of a top notch panhandling documentary. So go ahead, gimme money.
While my online panhandling continues to earn at a snail's paste, the documentary funding is off to a great start. We've gotten $400 (thanks Larry Scholl and John J.) in finishing funds donated since putting this trailer up. Thanks guys. You can donate using the donation buttons on the site, just specify that you're sponsoring the film and not buying me green tea and wheat free vegan brownies. Feel free to contact us about sponsorships as well. Just write to whylieineedadrink at yahoo.com. thanks. And hey, I could really use some green tea and wheat free vegan brownies.

That's what I wrote to Keith via email. And below is his response.

Sweetie,
the fuckin' god damn comments would probably help more on the fuckin' website in the goddamn comments section than here ya dick discharge!
Love,
Keith

Although Keith still loves me, or says he does, I still feel hurt by his nastiness, a nastyness he no doubt has inflicted on many of the homeless devils in Sacramento.

You may find it amusing to accuse me of such vulgarity, but it is clearly fabrication. It is fabrication that will not sit well with my mother when she comes to peruse the website of her precious wholesome (and handsome) son Keith.
I will accept your apology.
Love,
Joe er, I mean, Keith, oh whatever the heck my name is. Heck Mom, I said heck.

My names TJ - I represent the WASPS (Worldwide Assocaiation Of Panhandlers). I hope for Gods sakes you're registered. Pandhandling ain't what it used to be, the Unions are strong now and you have to be signed up. I hope those donations are going towards your membership fees, or we may have to sue. Apologies, I don't make the rules .. I'm just the messenger.

PS I like the little word verification game at the bottom, it beats hangman.

Your imagery depiction of the homeless is degrading and humiliating to the capital core of the urban profiteer. I hope you get a paper cut from the cardboard sign you hold you pretend fraudulant homeless homewrecker. I hope you slip with your marker while writing your sign and you accidently stain your shirt or pants and the stain will not be able to be Wisked away.

P.S. how did that advertisng bit work out the other day on the freeway... do you mind if I give it a try?

Great idea for a documentary, but absolutely HORRIBLE execution. I know this is a no-to-low budget film, but it absolutely void of any style or substance. Investigative reports on my university newscast are better put together than this. Don't quit your day job.

Many seem to disagree. I wonder about you anonymous shit-talkers. What kind of freaky thrill is it? One of my first posts on this blog ever was much like yours, but the blog went on to do quite well and the positive comments soon FAR outweighed the bad.
And now, though I doubt you'll return to read it, let me critique your critique. Your citicism is vague and unconstructive and since you know you are writing to the artists that you're critiquing it's rude and inconsiderate.
How about,
"Hey, the subject of this doc. is great. I realize it must be hard doing a no budget project of this magnitude while holding day jobs but even working within these restrictions I feel the project could be improved greatly by... etc. etc. etc."
You have taken an opportunity to be the best person you can be and you have not seized. I wish you better luck in the future.
Thanks for taking the time to say mean and nasty things to strangers, anonymously. We're all quite proud.

And this, Keith, is why we love you. Excellent. Can't wait to see the movie! I'd make a donation, but I'm broke. You got a dollar you can spare?

Yeah. Sorry about that. Can you spare a few bucks for Rogain, or propecia (sp?)
