HEY BLOGOSPHERE! I’VE RESORTED TO SEARCHING THROUGH GARBAGE JUST FOR YOU!

On the heels of Mtv’s new series Skins, I’m launching my controversial new blog-series Trash: NYC. I’m sure the parallels are obvious...


Skins – Underage kids doing above-the-age stuff.

[No logo yet]
Trash:NYC – Old me, sifting through garbage in plain sight of people. 

Freaky similar plotlines, right?

Season 1 / Episode 1: COLLEGE TRASHY

First day of shooting and I found one of NY’s finest. I believe this can is one of the ’05 models.
Location: 3rd and 12th – right in front of the NYU dorm building.
Day/Time: Presidents’ Day / Afternoonish

Observation: Since it was a long holiday weekend the spoiled kids weren’t around to litter the can. 

Cost of viewable trash:
Gourmet coffee – $3.49
Poland Spring – $1.42
Gatorade – $4.48
Total: $9.39

Final assessment: Sadly since it was a holiday I found no evidence of fun in the trash: condoms, drugs, alcohol, etc.

Sorry. I’m hoping for a stronger episode 2.

  10. NYU dorm isn't a bad idea, but those kids are educated enough to a) not dump in their own yard or b) put the drugs, condoms, etc in an old ritz box or something less suspicious. You need to be more thorough, sir, or just go to central park. But if you use those drugs be ready to be a rent stereotype.

  12. That's some expensive trash there. I bet episode 2 features some mystery item, like a box, or a glove.

  15. This is funny!

    I don't want to be a nitpicker (spelling?) but for the Skins picture you used, you used the British cast not the American. I'm only pointing that out because the original (British) Skins is AWESOME and the American/MTV version is the worst piece of garbage ever. I'd recommend watching the British Skins, it's on Netflix.

    That's all!

  18. Hopefully the pilot isn't cancelled and replaced with an unfunny Tyler Perry sitcom before the show can gain viewership.

  20. A person could make some money on that trash...
    I could move there and recycle for a living.
    You are without a doubt the most inventive person I know...
