Hobo ken — Eats shoots and contracts — "I've got eyeballs on my fingers!"

Today at 6 and 8:30, Anthology screens Bill Daniel's short, elliptical doc Who Is Bozo Texino? (I wrote an appreciation of the film that will appear in the Believer's visual issue in December.) It's about hoboes and their distinctive boxcar graffiti—a nice real-life counterpart to the 700 hobo names in John Hodgman's The Areas of My Expertise.

Bozo Texino! When I hosted Bill in Brooklyn for a screening of that hobo spectacular a little while back he included a special pre-feature treat in the lineup: Saul Rouda's Waldo Point. You'd really like it. It's about...house boats.
