Two generations of Hate




A favorite photo of Hate Man. From year 2000 on some long forgotten night on Sproul Plaza.

“Two generations of hate,” is how I always thought of this one. The guy on the left was this young gutter punk guy named Hatred. Side by side with the old guy, Hate Man.

Hatred was a cool guy. Had a hot girlfriend who was also a sweet person and talented artist as well as a dancer at the Market Street Cinema strip club. Hatred used to busk on Telegraph playing Social Distortion and other punk rock numbers on a battered acoustic guitar (“Ball and Chain” that kinda stuff).

The other memorable thing about Hatred. He’d often find excuses to pull down his pants and wave his wang in public. He’d do it for laughs. And it WAS funny as well as absurd. But it was probably also a sign of some kind of sexual damage

He was a good guy, Hatred. He ODed on heroin shortly after I took this photo. But that’s just life (and death) on the streets.
