If you can't already tell, I'm an avid collector of other people's trash. Be it cool old kitschy stuff or literal trash, I love it! I frequent many a thrift store, junk hole, garbage sale, estate sale and dumpster during any given week. Starvation Army, Badwill, Volunqueers of America, you know the places. Soooo, I guess I might keep ya updated on my weekly finds, interesting or otherwise!
I dunno who this dapper dude is, but I like him. I actually had to think about whether he was in fact cool enough to snag or not, but I'm glad I did! He's a bank too.
That irreverence, that wit. I'd recognize it anywhere. It's a Ziggy!
My new favorite mug. Imagine drinking ice cold root brewski outta this baby!
A Tasco periscope. I can't figure out if this is old or not, I'm getting conflicting facts from Ebay. Anywho, I guess it's pretty cool for 86 cents. This will come in handy in the middle of a snowball battle, peering from behind my snow fortress wall.
This cassette contains Christmas music from the future.
Easyrider's Video Magazine. Video magazines must have been pretty popular in the late 80's-early 90's, as I've seen many of them on various subjects. This was the most entertaining video I've seen in a long time (that is, when the tracking started working!). Ugly biker chicks flashing their saggy boobs, a scary-ass biker comedian, Skanky bar chicks dumping beer all over their bodies, crazy dudes jamming bikes through the mud, tanks and flame-throwing robots....Oh and let's not forget the "Biker Home Videos".
Yes, that's Al from "Home Improvement" and Dave Thomas of "Bob and Doug McKenzie" fame. This is one of those super cheesy Feature Films for Families tapes. I can pretty much guess the plot from the cover art, and I'm pretty sure little else happens. I haven't watched this one yet, not cuz I'm afraid it will suck, but cuz I'm afraid I'll like it.
Detail of the cover art: Notice the "Scan-A-Scam" scanner and the gloriously ancient computer.
