Vince Hanneman, AKA The Junk King, has become famous in Austin for the massive, multi-room, 60-ton Cathedral of Junk he has been building on his property since the 80s. As the structure grew, he faced complaints from neighbors, resulting in threats from the local government to cease and desist. However, he remained stubborn, jumping through all the hoops officials threw his way so that he could keep the structure standing. Vince, who resides on the same property as his structure, only allows appointments made over the phone. Visitors who show up without an appointment are often turned away. Vince and his Cathedral of Junk encapsulates the infamous slogan, “Keep Austin Weird”.

The running man in north Austin Texas off of rundberg and north Lamar. I remember when I was just a kid and he would be running in place with a microphone like he’s performing. You can actually google him. Running man Austin Texas.

He reminds me of so many awesome hippies I hung out and partied with in my teens and early 20s. Miss those days, though sleeping on couches gets old. As cities keep getting more expensive most artist types are just moving out to smaller towns where they have more space and are closer to nature.

To think this is just junk that he's saved, imagine what's going into the ground in landfills around the world 🌎 Reminds of the Cathedral in Barcelona, where the chap started building over 100 years ago & it's still going on..... bit by bit. Cheap hipsters, then cuts or man with stretch ear lobes, his wife with heavy tattoos.
