After a brief google search I can conclude I have no fucking idea. Apparently the surname 'Hawken' is derived from English origins and encompases the motto 'toujours pret' which roughly translates to 'always ready'.
In all honesty Jack Hawken is probably just some guy who dumped heaps of crap next to the motorway and had a massive ego trip thinking this crap could qualify as a street. Not only did he have the arrogance to regard this concrete hell hole as a street but then the nerve to name it after himself.
Jack Hawken is a bad man. He is selfish and petulant. He is likely to have a moustache like the guy in the photo above. He probably enjoys clubbing baby seals. There is a good chance Jack Hawken owns multiple pairs of Crocs.
But despite his numerous faults and shortcomings I for one can see a fun-loving and gentle spirit inside of Jack Hawken. I salute you Jack Hawken. You dared to dream. You wouldn't listen when they told you No.
Sorry for wasting a minute of your life. Hopefully we can use this blog anyway to share things that we like. Jacko would have wanted it that way.
