Broke-Ass of the Week – Jeremiah Currier

Every week we feature a different person from the community shedding a little light on their life of brokeitude. Who knows, maybe you’ll learn something about the human spirit — probably not.

Wanna be a Broke-Ass of the Week? Holler at us here and we’ll send you the questionnaire.

When I asked Jeremiah what he’d like me to include in the intro, this is what he said:

“podiatry student but soon taking a leave of absence to teach myself computer hacking”. I play the trumpet & ride a 1979 vespa.

1. Workin and twerkin
2. Taking care of the house Schnoodle
3. Training for the Bay to Breakers…
4. Taking pictures

I have no idea what a “house Schnoodle” is, but now I desperately wish I did. Jeremiah, what is it????

I've been called "an Underground legend": SF Chronicle , "an SF cult hero": SF Bay Guardian, and "the chief of cheap": Time Out New York, but to those familiar with my work, I'm just "that douchebag who writes books about cheap stuff and drinks a lot".
