A model homeless man

Tony and Jim

Tony was the subject of a professional photo shoot over the weekend, by a widely-admired photographer, Jim Allen. Look for Jim’s photos of Tony in the next issue of Irked Magazine.


The cook, the beef, his life and recovery

Upside down

Still upside down

“You remember the guy I told you I was coaching? Well, it turns out he’s a great cook, he’s amazing. He can cook anything. We got this nice piece of roasting meat the other night. By the time he’s finished cooking it, it was fit for a king. So now I’m a homeless guy with my own cook. Life is crazy sometimes.”

On trial

February 20, 2008


As planned, Tony is in court today. Hopefully he’s not going back to into jail but you never know … you’ll know more when I do.


Go ask Alice

February 15, 2008

As some of you know, Tony has a court hearing coming up on Feb 20th.

Because of the weather (I hope), I haven’t seen Tony in 2+ days. If you’re in the area and you happen to see him, please remind him (again!) to call his lawyer, Alice Barton, at Derstine Penman at 1-866-304-1921 so that everyone can be prepared for the 20th and for the human rights action that she’s launched on Tony’s behalf.




UPDATE – 5pm – I saw Tony and re-reminded him to call Alice.   ps

Thanks, Tony

Roentgen’s hand

“Do you remember the fellow I was coaching a few weeks back?

“Well, believe it or not, I turned him in. It was small stuff he was into, but he wasn’t sticking to his word to me, so I had to turn him in. I even told the cops where to find him. So he gets hauled off to jail in cuffs and they charge him and now he’s going to trial in a few weeks. So you know what he says to me when he sees me? … ‘Thanks, Tony. Now I don’t have look behind me everywhere I go.’

“Well, I never turned a friend in before but this time it was the right thing to do.”

It’s Tony’s lucky break

Collar bonePHILIP
“You look like the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come — what happened to you?”

“I went ass over tea kettle on the ice. Always happens to me when I put my hands in my pockets, I just got too cocky.”

“Where did you hurt yourself?”

“Here on my side here. I’m lucky I already have that broken collar bone. Otherwise I would have for sure pushed that bone would be sticking right out my shoulder. I’m telling you, it hurts like hell; I hit it the ground pretty hard. Serves me right though, I should keep my hands out of my pockets on the ice.”
