Hobo Stu’s Weekly Recap

Hello everyone,

It’s been a busy week here on HoboTrashcan. In case you missed the announcement, to celebrate the site’s five-year anniversary, we brought back five defunct site features.

Personally, it’s been a lot of fun to stroll down memory lane and to revisit with these great former contributors. I can’t help but feel a little misty eyed when thinking about it now, but that may be because Ned Bitters got pepper sprayed at the Hobo Headquarters office party and, since I was next to him, a little bit of it ended up in my eyes as well.

I hope you all have been enjoy the festivities as much as we have. If there were features that you really enjoyed seeing again (or ones you thought were missing), please let us know.

Also, make sure to check out our newest feature, Joel and Lars’ Box Office Preview.

Happy anniversary, everyone. Thanks for five great years.

Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:

Chicken and Milk
Jeremiah Wentz’s unique photo comic, which originally ran on the site from November 2007 to September 2008, returns with two brand new installments this week.

Just Friends – Nicole 2010
Our editor-in-chief Joel Murphy has a lot of hot women resting comfortably inside his “friend zone.” When HoboTrashcan first began, we showcased those friends. This week, the feature returns with the lovely Nicole.

Note to Self – Why your team won’t win the Super Bowl 2010
With preseason officially underway, football fans across this great nation are convincing themselves that this could be their team’s year. Brian Murphy returns to the site to explain why they’re wrong.

Overrated – Local pride
Before Aaron R. Davis moved in as HoboTrashcan’s resident curmudgeon, there was Ned Bitters. Bitters returns to the site this week to take local pride down a peg.

Tales from the Road
In the early days of the site, we would post a monthly outdoor photo in a segment called Tales from the Road. This week, professional photographer Neil Greenberg helps bring that segment back.

Box Office Preview – August 27, 2010
Trying to decide what movie to see this weekend? In an all new feature, Joel Murphy and Lars breakdown the five new films hitting theaters today and recommend the one that they believe is the safest bet.

Murphy’s Law – Things that piss me off 2010
What do Sonic, Jimmy Fallon, Channing Tatum, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and that ridiculous Nissan Cube have in common? They all piss off Joel Murphy.

Outside of the In-Crowd – Spencer Pratt, you magnificent bastard
Most people assume Spencer Pratt is a worthless douchebag, but could he actually be an evil genius? Courtney Enlow investigates in this week’s column.

Positive Cynicism – I’m not dumb enough to enjoy Family Guy
When he bashed The Family Guy, one counterargument Aaron R. Davis didn’t expect to hear was that he was too intelligent to enjoy the show’s humor. Davis responds to this “personal attack” this week.

Hobo Radio 146 – Ben Stiller is getting Ratnered
When you think of great actor/director combos in Hollywood today, you might think of Johnny Depp and Tim Burton, Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese or Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg. But a new actor/director powerhouse has been formed and Hollywood may never be the same – Brett Ratner and Ben Stiller.
