Instant gratification monument


I went to the Borders near my home the other day and right outside the door is this poor, poor trash can. Apparently legions of folks with their exciting new purchases in hand have stopped here to pry open that jewel case and peel off that annoying sticker once they were ten feet outside the store.

I was tempted to peer closer and read the labels to determine what people couldn’t wait till home or their cars to listen to but the smell and social stigma associated with lingering around a trash can were just too much for me.

    I rather like it. In fact, I have seen this phenomenon in cities big and small, where the trashcan nearest to a record store is covered in CD labels. Hell, it’s better than that Nehi/Borf/Rane slap label horseshiat.

    If we could get someone at the Scranton, PA metroblogging (kidding, of course) to get a picture of the trashcan outside the Joe Nardone’s Gallery of Sound on Rt. 6 in Dickson City, we would see the most cd-sticker covered can I have ever seen.
