A filmmaker named Tyler Mann stopped to have a conversation with an unnamed homeless man he saw outside a petrol station in Austin, Texas which turned out to be one of the most profound conversations he’s ever had in his life.
The man talks about how he once had a lot of money and a cushy lifestyle, but because of a drug charge and a jail sentence he lost it all and is now living in a tent playing music for small change. He goes on to expound the problems with society and technology these days pretty much perfectly in a truly heartbreaking and insightful monologue. Sometimes you just need a change in perspective to see how things really are these days.
If you enjoyed that, check out this homeless 50 year old bodybuilder who won’t let anyone stop him working out too.
