Ever really Dumpster dive?

Yesterday I took a battalion of dead soldiers to their grave (Threw out the empty beer bottles to the recycling bin). I noticed a bag of c.d.s laying on top of the pile. I was doing what this little banana was doing :banana: . Ran the bag to my house and started to go through them. 99 % of them were empty :crying: , I did find a demo of a local Black Metal band called ANTICOSM-ALCOHOLIC DARKNESS. I wonder if it was worth it now that my neighbors are thinking I'm a homeless bum.

Anybody else have a story like this or am I the only sad and pathetic loser? :blink:

HAHA! Never been that lucky with CDs, but I remember as a kid we used to get old porn magazines from the dumpster out the back of selected newsagents. :) That's pretty much as good, isn't it?

:rofl: My bro and I also accumulated a rather impressive, er, "library" of porn back in the day by making sweeps around the neighborhood during recycling weeks. We knew which houses to keep an eye on and when we saw a big stack of newspapers/magazines go out to the curb we'd be on it like a fat chick on a cheeseburger. Our collection was the envy of all of our friends. :lol:

 

The only CDs I've ever found in the road or elsewhere have been CD-Rs and they've always been scratched or cracked to hell. Nothin' worth keeping.

I have found some records by the curbside quite a few times. I would take them to the PRINCTON RECORD EXCHANGE and trade them in for store credit. For two milk crates full of albums, I would get between 10 to 15 dollars credit. :tumbsup:

 

I have no shame :anon:

I'm no stranger to the trash pile, but here is a different story...

 

One day I noticed my fav hat, an embroidered ball cap I got from the 25th anniversary B.O.C. tour was missing, and deduced it had fallen into my paper recycling tub, which I had taken to the paper dumpster the day before. Well, I raced out there and thankfully it hadn't been emptied yet. I couldn't see it, as a lot more paper had been dumped, so I threw myself in and attacked the pile! As I waded around at least five feet of paper, cardboard and stuff, several people drove up and dumped more in! One guy asked what I was doing and I just mumbled "I lost something", I felt like an ass. Eventually I pulled up some recyclables I recognized from my house, and dove my arms down that area... found it! I still have it, but it doesn't hang above the tub anymore :)

Everyday Music here in Portland throws away thousands of cassette tapes every month. I've actually been waste-deep in the garbage bin on more than one occassion :beerbang:

I can honestly say that if a place around here did that I would do the same thing.

Back in high school about 20+ years ago, my buddy and I found a sack full of Playboy's at the dump. We thought that was pretty kick ass since porn was harder to come by back then :D

I can honestly say I've never done that...but I have stopped the car and picked up CD's off of the street, most of them have been RAP CD's so I threw them back where I found them.

 

If playable, I will take any kind of c.d. or d.v.d I get my paws on. You can always trade them in at the local record store for credit or cash. :tumbsup:

That would be sweet!

 

We have a thrift store here that does the same thing with books, but they usually keep it padlocked. Sometimes I get lucky :)

    • Well mate here's the deal Firstly I saw them on their first ever tour with Kenny. Yep was great. Then I saw them about 10 times with Erik. Each and every time they were utterly fantastic. Erik is a beast live and one of the best singers I've seen period. Then he leaves and they get Kenny back 10 years on and way past his best imo and quite frankly pretty poor compared to what Erik bought.  For me, no matter how well they play its just not the same without Erik.  If youve never seen the band with Erik you probably wont understand. So yeah I stand by my comment.  I'll probably never see them live again tbh
    • Skies of Mongolia - Treat
    • No Rest for the Wicked - new sensation Ozzy Osbourne
    • yea, i knew why they got lumped together as grunge because of their clothes and where they came from, just always thought it was weird as they have nothing in common musically speaking.  
    • well if one feels Erik raised the quality significantly, then the band is indeed a shadow of their former selves once he leaves.  whether or not one thinks Erik raised the quality significantly is again up to the individual. mmmbop.   A SHADOW OF YOUR FORMER SELF definition: someone or something that is not as strong, powerful, or useful as it once was: 
    • Agree they are nothing alike. All are called "grunge" but all have different sounds and influences. Soundgarden have a classic metal influence (i.e. Sabbath) whereas Nirvana have a punk/hardcore and alt. rock influence (i.e. Melvins) and Pearl Jam has a classic hard rock influence (i.e. Guess Who). They just came out of the same area/scene and didn't dress glam so got lumped together.
    • "a shadow of themselves" is not preferring one over another singer, it is stating that the band is nothing like itself even though the band was around before your favourite singer was even in the band. That is why it is a ridiculous comment. Shouldn't be hard even for you to understand, Tobi.
    • the vocals were so bad I couldn't really focus on any other part of the song or listen it to long enough to see what it was all about.  Chris Cornell very good vocals, Kurt Cobain bad vocals, Eddie Vedder even worse vocals.  I've seen these three bands often get lumped together but they are nothing alike.  this is how you fuckin' do it.
