  1. Mr.I Hate Street Fairs misses aggressive fake homeless/homeless for a summer man who took up half the sidewalk in front of a bank. Film at 11.

  2. Brandon Santander now makes his home at Franklin and Broadway, harrassing people day and night (especially aggressive after he smokes his K2) Also, according to the workers in gourmet garage, he has over $900 on his government issued food stamp card that he can not use at the liquor stores, thus his begging for cash to fuel that other habit.

  3. Eric,

    Would love it if someone would show your alternative film lineup instead. Excellent.
