    how many of you thugs are dumpster divers.
    that shits kinda cool.
    i know very few though, all punk kids.
    i was just thinking about it tonight while i re-read evasion for the 10th time.
    if you dont know, evasion is a zine wrote by this kid who bascially said...
    fuck work im just gonna hitchhike all over, steal and dumpster dive becuase i can, and he wrote about things he did.
    its really good. i usually hate most zines since 9 out of 10 are the same..but this is really good. rare though, iv never met another person who knows about it but its good.
    anyways. dumpster diving seems cool.
    ill never do it, im to clean and i like spending money, and i would feel stupid if someone saw me. but oh well.

    i dont ever eat out of dumpsters, there are better ways to get free food. but you can sometimes find some cool shit in dumpsters, you just gotta know which ones to look in.

    was the evasion zine put out by crimethinc. ? i heard about it. never got a copy. i dumpster dive. i got a new jacket when i was in ny after that whole trade center excitement. some woman died and her family didn't come get her stuff. so the landlord put all her stuff on the side of the street. i get pizza and donuts from the dumpsters when i'm out paintin late at night. 'salright i guess. it comes in it's own bags and boxes and shit. so it doesn't have that garbage juice all over it...

    yea the zine was re-put out by crimethinc.
    i got it the guys in zegota at a show. i believe it was something like, one of the crimethinc guys found a copy..i guess the kid made his own copies and gave them out..but the guy found the copy liked it alot, contacted the kid who wrote the zine got permission and they inturn printed up a bunch of copies. so yea basically. but its pretty damn good.

    a really good friend of mine..his dad used to work at the dump.
    not like a big landfill where the dumptrucks dump out all the shit..one of those dumps where you drive it there yourself and throw it away. kinda hard to explain but maybe some of you know what im talking about. anyway he used to get tons of cool shit. he would get genesis games, toys, occasionally a nice piece of furniture! his dad would take alot of good shit. if he liked it, he'd keep it..if he didnt want it, he'd just keep it at his house for awhile until all the shit he kept would pile up..then he'd put it all up for sale in a yard sale..and make like $100 or so. not bad.
    this was back when mcdonalds had their first monopoly game thing..and i remember two game pieces came with a board in the sunday paper to promote the game..well tons of people never even took the game pieces off, so his dad would take them all. he had tons of 'free cheeseburger', 'free fries' game pieces. me and my friend would just grab a bunch and go pig out at mcdonalds for free. and he also had alot of 'free 20oz coke' and stuff from people that didnt care to check the cap to see if it was a winner.
    but the best was those 'pepsi points'. people would throw out their pepsi product without taking the points. so his dad collected them. this kid ended up with like 6,000 points! and he sold/traded a bunch to me for mad cheap. i got tons of pepsi t-shirts, cd case, beach chair, duffel bag, and even a real nice leather jacket which i still have. my friend got the bike along with other shit.

    crimethink and evasion are both real cool books/people/orginizations but so many kids turn it into thier bible, im not saying in anyway that you are or anything but ive met alot of kids who label themselves "crimethink kids" which is just fucking weak. a few of my freinds hitched all around for the last few months and have realized alot of the bullshit involved with those kids. i dunno...good ideas are taken too far, far too often.

    the 1st year that Marlboro miles came out I worked in a bar and the bouncers did clean-up... 1 of them ended up getting the pool table and 1 had enough but got other stuff... (it was like 35,000 miles for the table and they came 5 miles a pack...)... that's over 10,000 packs of smokes picked up by them in one year, though, to be fair, one guy smoked too, plus we would all save our miles for them, still...

    nigga lemme tell you suntin. dumpster diving is a skill that you can only accwIyer at that one second. man one time i was bombin some pull down gates in the middle of a block . man i seen like 5 cop cars turn the corner on some movie shit. man, i ran like a mufuka. with my boy right behind me, we turned that corner past the Rite Aid. and there it was .and it appeared.... glowing like a becon calling out to me. so i ran to it and in one leap i floated towards the opening of that glowing dumpster headfirst and oolong....
    landed on some bags headfirst but my boy landed in some naaaasty shit, his arm was covered with it....some browning pudding type shit.

    that zine you speak of sounds pretty interestings. its strange, but i have nothing to do with the punk scene anymore, but i can't stop reading COMETBUS. that was my favorite zine. kinda like the one you describe, but its aaron from crimpshrine traveling around the country and his comments and conclusions about life. i think i might check out evasion

    dumpster diveing is fun, i have found so much stuff including working moniters computers. And me and my freind found a 21 inch monitor worth like 1500$ and all we had to do was replace 1 part...

    But the best thing we have found was at the local recycling place, people always drop off metal shit, sometimes you can find some pretty nice shit, like old bikes and computers etc. This time my friend found an old invisible board, perfect condition, its so dope its also got doh doh trucks, the berings are warn out but the deck still rules.
