Default Worn out Texas punk rock kids



Advertise Here

Hello, a couple of burnt out (not druggies...sorry, physically burnt out) squatter kids from the Texas areas. Now back to our roots in East Texas (Longview, Kilgore, Tyler part). Small acreage that seems huge to us and sometimes overwhelming. Hopefully we aren't dumping too many dreams into a little old less than 10 acre tract. Anyway, hello, before I spill it all. Like what I see here thus far.

A word derived from a legal action called squatter's rights, more precisely, Adverse Possession...by which a vacant building or parcel of land, within certain limitations, can be, well, adversely possessed given that a sort of "interest" (be it a utility, upkeep...blah, blah) has been maintained by someone other than the owner for an extended period. Not a good thing sometimes, but when it involves neglected government buildings and whatnot, we used to call it...HOME. 25 years, the limitation in Texas at the time, is a long time for a 16 year old with a mohawk, a hoody and a backpack full of books lol.

So, when its freezing and sleeping under a bridge is not an option, you kick in the door (or find a more subtle access...god I warned those kids not to do that), make or find mattresses and make yourself at home. At 16 most hopeless kids on the street are misguided about the length of time it takes to do such a thing but being from a background in real property I happened to be the bearer of grim truth (this law was more geared towards ranchers and farmers and simple fence lines). You hear a bit about the youth attempting to live this in warehouses in Frisco and whatnot...there's no longer a laws to support them but they can whine enough there to make anything go their way.

That's the long and the short of it...so, hello.

Oh no, 150 year/old family land. The family is, well, unfortunately, "getting smaller" over time and we are holding on to it for dear life to preserve her heritage here. Legally bound and legit but the last of a once 600 acre area.

I don't fully agree with squatting out land but people are so timid nowdays that I'm seeing a resurgence...even though there is very little legal basis. On a couple of occasions in this area, I've seen owners duped out of rent or even eviction because the immediate authorities will not force without a legal mandate from the courts. Dilapidated, government owned ruins are a different story to us morally, but still pretty much useless since our local governments have instilled strict penalties on "camping" and even make "raids" to flush the homeless into jail cells in places like Austin, Tx (where the homeless were a sort of tourist attraction).

Its been an interesting life thus far but we are what one may call "by the book" now. Though I may like to see it possible, for anyone's own good I'd advise seeing if things have been changed in the squatting parties' favor over the years. I doubt they have, it seems that law only gets worse over time (more complex and less civy friendly). In the instance of moving fence lines on property boundaries...it happens to this day with something as simple as one neighbor mowing and tending to a brush covered barbed wire fence. Mostly referred to as, acquiring an "interest" in the property.

Yeah, sorry, I kinda of got excited about this place. Everyone has a little something to offer. More often than not, we have advice on what NOT to do, ha. We've already learned a lot and fixed a couple of issues in less than 24 hours of joining, so some people on this site are already being helpful...inadvertently. We must thank the site as a whole for that.

Worn out punk rock kids in their early 40's
Then you can feel my pain being a punk rock kid in my 60s
Like that old The Tubes song, I was a Punk Before You Were a Punk

I assume Skillet Filter is an amalgamation of the names of two non-punk rock bands
Nice Shot Man

Good luck to you all
Make the best of what you have
Be greatful you have some acreage to do what you do with
Many here live in tract homes
You have some freedom
Don't sell that short

No sir, my good fellow. We will do our best to correct what we feel is wrong and contribute back to society if at all possible. You can count on that oldster.

Yeah, we managed to get here...burned out and gave in for a time to get a leg up. Best thing to do when you are a couple of the few remaining. I suppose, in a way, that makes us survivalists hunh?

Skillet and Filter...now that you mention it, it sounds like two tag names, doesn't it? Alas, it was just two items in the building. If it was, our "street names" it'd be more like Wyre Bell Slug Locket though lol. Btw, "how many punks does it take to screw in a light bulb..."?

"1...and 20 on the guest list" (wasn't that from Decline? Can't remember)
Agent Orange hunh? Now I suppose I should do my yearly vinyl dusting.

Its funny getting older in this scene. So much for all those people who wanted to change the world...seems they liked needle drugs more than personal revolution. C'est la vie...I'm content being that redneck that used to chase me down the alley now. Very, very good to see someone else made it out alive. Maybe the military would have been a better decision.

I would say, "yeah, right down the road...". but nothing is right down the road here and Greece is far, far away. An hour away at 75 mph, straight shot nearly ( well, you know).

I'll defend East Texas, it better than many an area but it is still full of corruption...the difference is, its VERY damned evident here.
