Welcome to the crossroads....i was 18 years old lost and pissed at the world. Trapped. Painting graffiti was no longer enough. Music was no longer enough. The psychedelics made it worse. It was nearly midnight on a cool night in June and an old friend left me at the Taft yard in Orlando Florida. It was now that i would either stay in my shell and eventually implode or id move on. It took me three tries to get on the train that night. I was a lone and never caught out before. When i finally was able to run fast enough and grab that ladder i knew right there and then this was the beginning. That was 6 years ago. Since then i have been in a whirlwind of confusion. Medicating myself through markals and alcohol. Moving faster and faster knowing that maybe ill figure it out on that next ride. What i didnt know at the time was that the railroad would help me and hurt me. Ive been in a dark place for some time now and desperate to leave. The rails showed me my true self and made me aware of the fact that i didnt like who i was. I think about my friends a lot because i owe them the world. Sometimes i sit up at night and wonder where slyfox is and if hes alright, or if my homie Retik or birdflu is still pushin on forward. Its my friends that kept me alive and the rails that kept me going. Its in my blood. I remeber the rush i felt as i approached the Canadian border wondering if ill make it through the checkpoint or be haulted into handcuffs or that time foks and i hopped out of st louis on the fly as the bull was on the other side of the train looking for us. These feelings were always such a strong reminder that I am here and i still got energy to push on with. This is the first time in my life i think i can grab ahold of the wheel and take control. Ive seen 360 degrees and the miles traveled and the people that got my back have all been noted. Sometimes you just have to stop in your tracks for one brief second and think. Whats the point. Maybe there is no point to any of this and maybe thats not such a bad thing. Just go. Climb high. Smoke a blunt. Go steal that paint. Get on that fuckin train. Do what ever you want! Just dont be stagnant. Move forward and keep your pace. Grow. You dont have to win you dont even have to come fucking close!! Just try, and thats good enough. Its crazy how important the railroad has been in my life and i owe my world to its rusty rails and screeching wheels. They set me free. Or at least gave me the option of choice. Ive chose wrong...ive chose worse, a few times i chose better but most of all i chose. I guess what im trying to say is that im just thankful, im thankful for the people who got my back when i was angry drunk and raising hell. The ones who got me out the cold when i missed my train. Theres people i have yet to meet that have extended their hand and helped me to keep going. Im nobody and if i die that way thats fine with me. I was here. I touched a surface and left a mark that one day will also fade away. Nothing is forever and im starting to love the idea of that. One day i to will be forgotten. But for a brief moment in our time myself. My lady. Our friends. We were here. We raised hell on these rails and we still are!! I dont believe there is anything after this life and that sits just okay with me. When my time comes whether its next month or in ten years I will grow and then i will rest. One day ill be the person i think i can be, no one deserves to me angry all of the time. Its a choice. Ive tricked myself into thinking im so tired that i cant progress. I look at others and think fuck...i want that. And one day i will. One day. Ill find my peace with the world or atleast myself. Things still dont make sense but guess what. I dont fuckin care anymore, at least as of now i think im just gonna try and have a good time. My name is Hatsorax, some of you know me. Most of you dont. Remember me well...

This video was originally released in 2000 on VHS, and saw worldide distribution....The first volume, in a 2 volume video series I fully produced, mainly consisting of freight train graffiti, and was filmed in Allentown, Pa in the late 90's...This first volume also contained elements of hip hop as well, featuring some local rappers, DJ's and breakers from my area at the time. Also featured is vintage spray paint collecting, and an interview...
Let us know who you are? who youre with? and how long youve been doing the damn thing?
I am Treske from south eastern Pennsylvania I've been writing treske for about 16 years and had used a seperate name locally for a few years before that.
Over the years ive seen your style change and develop ? Did hanging around other artist influence you and how?
I've always been open to influence from family and friends... most of my family comes from a fine arts background so I have always tried to pay attention to what was going on with other people's work and even what influenced them... I've had the privilege to cross paths with a handful of quality sprayers over the years and have learned a great deal from all of them
Ive noticed as time goes on youve started to focus less on Panels and more on Monikers. Why is that?
I've done so much with spray and enjoyed myself over the years, I'll never turn my back on blasting a quality panel door to ladder... There's something that just gets my blood pumping when i know I'm cleaning up a boxcar that had a bunch of garbage on it... With that said I can't deny that with growing older I have found a more spiritual and therapeutic gain from walking lines alone and marking trains... I've grown more and more distant from my painting bag and fallen in love with the railroad all over again in a more mature way I guess... I enjoy the thought of reaching a wider audience with my monikers and having influence on anyone who chances crossing paths with a mark I have left behind for them to read.
Give us a name of a local writer not affiliated with your crew you think is dope and why?
In my city there's a crew of gentleman under the three letters DHS whom I have become quite a fan of... In my opinion they have become the dream team of Philadelphian script wizardry... To be more specific I would say Drama DHS due to the fact that I have been a fan of his hand styles since I was a youngster, he never disappoints
Where do you see the future of freight train graffiti
It's getting crowded out there and with the recent in flux of new jacks taking out historical panels and monikers carelessly it would be easy to turn this into a very negative reply to your question but let's take a minute to be realistic... the crowding will make for some interesting attempts from sprayers to stick out more and seek recognition which will get things evolving and changing in new directions... And though it pains any of us older fellas who are still here trying to stay in the game to see older panels and monikers disappear it actually is motivation for us to try to step our game up and educate people more as well as get out there and police what's going on, all the while keeping us active and in the game for that much longer... I love railroad graffiti and fortunately I grew up and still reside in a city rich with spray history and style, Nothing compares to philadelphia... I have always enjoyed the stories and respect people have payed for those who came before us time and time again... just with this current in flux of toys in the railroad I have seen the same happen here in the city I love for which we all learned from and worked hard to deal with and keep it moving as I have faith railroad graffiti will do as well... I believe in our success.
