Someone said "hey dumbass if you love Google+ so much why dont you have a +1 button?"
He had a point. And wouldnt you know it? Blogger has a whole new share bar thingy. Well, since my blogger template was uber customized by me in 2007. It was all created on the old template. I'm not sure if I like the new template but hey, it has a google plus button now so we'll just have to deal.
So. You know all the trash on the side of the freeway? All the random debris. I, like most people I'm sure probably just chalk it up to people being rude slobs throwing shit from cars. I'm sure there's plenty of that but I think the majority of it is from something that I saw the other day.
As I got on the freeway going to work I pulled on behind a garbage truck. A regular ol' residential garbage truck. I heard the sound of what I would describe as dirt or large dust speckling my (brand new) windshield and I, concerned, looked to see what it was coming from. Obviously the garbage truck.
So I slow down and make some more distance between me and the dust mobile. Then I start to see larger objects silhouetted in the sunrise coming from the top of the trash compactor section of this trash hauler. Some came into view. I started to recognize shapes. That's office paper, hmm those are recipts. More papers. A hunk of Styrofoam whisked into the wind. More small miscellaneous flotsam. Then something large started shaking lose near the rim. "Is that a..... " a fucking show! It came lose. I watched as a size 11 hi-top Nike cross trainer tumbled across 2 lanes then rested on the shoulder next to the barrier.
I then found my way and passed junk thrower thinking what the hell else flies out of those trucks on a daily basis? Is this where all the shit on the side of the road is? Probably.
I wonder if they usually have more secure lids and this one was just busted? Probably not.
So while people are still filthy slobs, i blame most of the mess on dump trucks.
Last month you should have known that I had an art opening with brand new paintings at Steeltown Coffee and Tea in old Town Pittsburg. But the internet completely failed me and some of you didn't get the memo. Well a bunch of you did anyway (thanks by the way). A couple more went later to check it out. (thanks) but my stuff will be up for viewing till December. Even though I'm posting pictures here, you should still go look and buy some delicious coffees.
I want to also thank Adrian at Steeltown for letting me share my art with my new home town.
