After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

You got it. Between 1992 and 1996 I spent several long stretches of time being [i]locationally challenged[/i]. Exact dates are difficult for me; you know, no calendar. But I did the complete tour - from sleeping on friend's couches, to letting myself get picked-up in bars, to sleeping under over-passes, behind dumpsters, in welfare hotels and crackhouses. I ate what I could steal and what you threw away. I did my time in Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, Las Vegas, and San Diego.

I was not insane or an addict or an alcoholic. When I started, anyway. Homelessness fucks with your head in a big way, and booze and drugs are no less availabile than any other place, and often the only comfort one might have.

Not once did I panhandle.

Anything you might want to know, I will try to answer.
