The Continuing Adventures of Captain Garbage
AToday's super rando thing:

Yes, they are all in there, meaning they never found a spot on the wall overlooking some sophomore's Pier One candles and copy of Bridget Jones.

I cannot express how much I love this thread.

But it didn't break!

IRONY!

What a twist!

AIs that the DVD or the soundtrack? I'm after the soundtrack - can't get it in the uk.
Reply
AIt didn't break but it looks warped all to hell..
Reply
AOh yeah. It's the DVD too.

My search continues...

AMusic CDs/soundtracks aren't region specific like movies are they?

AI couldn't find it on amazon the last time I looked (which was years ago) but it's deffo not on UK iTunes - there's region specific content on there. I'm sure it's out there probably on eBay if I look hard enough but I've not bought music on physical media for about 10 years because I'm too lazy to transfer it via PC.

AIt's on the US Amazon for like $9..
Reply
AYep and in the uk we get directed to the UK Amazon store. ☹️
Reply
AActually just checked it's on the uk Amazon for £17. Fucked if I'm paying that though.
Reply
AIt was indeed the DVD. And the person had spitefully bent it in half before binning it. Because why should anyone else have it? Maybe they were scared the rats at the landfill would watch it.

But it didn't break!

Because UNBREAKABLE!

AEvery time I get one of these (and it's a dozen a week) I re-enact the Burning the Temple scene from Conan.

A day in the life of Lightning Slim?





(Best part starts after 3:30 if you're impatient)



Chrystal Meth? LSD? Hypomania? Good ol' fashioned gumption? Regardless, this is a lady that knows what she wants. All that trash picked up.

AHa! The local radio guys played this for us this morning. Pure gold. I've had my share of bag-limit disputes but thankfully not this level of Munchausen / bath salts.

AToday's catch: 8 amp reciprocating saw. Nothing wrong with it. There was a Dremel, too. Bagged up and destined for the embrace of Mother Earth. This is why the Third World hates us.

I wonder how often it is that stuff like that is the result of a wife or girlfriend finding out her husband/boyfriend is cheating on her, and just throws all his crap out.

Reply
AWe definitely get the flavour of "woman threw him out" sometimes. We know what's up when it's one big bag of hockey memorabilia and Dane Cook CDs.

Finding a half-decomposed body doesn't seem half-bad now.

I hope you're taking the proper precautions when handling this hazardous waste Captain Garbage.

ATongs, yo. We invested in some grabbers when we came across somebody's hentai collection complete with crusty waifu mouse pad.

Today, in WTF:



We waded through this:







And found this:







Yes, Virginia, that is a baseball bat with an iron spike on it. Whoever made it was planning on hunting the Vampyr or becoming a Warboy in the End Times before they got evicted.

AI pull into the Transfer station yard, swinging the Filthy Falcon around to point the filthiest end at the tipping floor. Through the 38C haze I dimly note the attendant wave me back through the doors. I back her up and jump out, ready to say Hi to the usual dude.

What awaits me is a surprise; an unexpected look for a waste management employee. She's a young woman of about twenty, with the flaxen braid and midwinter eyes of a shieldmaiden or a sister-wife. She's in a yellow Hi-Viz shirt and a green hard hat, which has a plastic daisy glued to the front.

We dive into the language of the business: "ICI Standard?" "Yeah, some scrap metal if you look." "Right on, man."

The Falcon's tip is an enviable ten seconds. Out come the waves of filth that a hot summer have well and truly maggotted. Flower Child expertly snares the corpse of a child's bicycle with an old hockey stick and tosses it to the side. I often wonder how non-Canadian wasties clean out their trucks and piles.

As I'm righting the box and preparing to leave, Flower Child strikes at the ground like a heron in a frog pond, snatching up a McDonald's coffee cup. With a practiced motion she folds and removes the loyalty sticker from the cup and slaps it onto the back of her helmet for later retrieval. "Whoo!" she says with exaggerated glee.

I wave from the cab as I guide the Falcon back out to the scale house. 545kg of loose recyclables.
