A Night in the Life of Tiger Hood

Today’s guest on the show is Tiger Hood also known as Patrick Barr.

This episode happened because my train decided to take a detour and out of my utter frustration I decided to get out and just walk home. If you’ve ever ridden the Subway in New York on the weekend then you full understand my frustration.

On this summer hike to the Lower East Side I ran into my friend Tiger Hood. Now I’ve known Tiger for some years now. If you don’t know Tiger Hood, he is famous for his photography and the type of golf he likes to play. His game is street golf. Tiger upcycles used milk containers by wrapping them with tape and hitting them with a golf club toward a box in the distance. Sometimes he puts the box up the block and sometimes it’s across the street, it all just depends what he deems the safest placement for that street. Some People even collect his taped up milk containers.

The first time I saw his photography it stopped me in my tracks. He had taken a photo in Key West of a Rooster eating out of a KFC box and I thought it was funny.

For years I’d been wanting interview Tiger and stars stars finally aligned.

Enjoy,
Amon
