The End of Dumpster Diving 2020 Digital Magazine

Summer of 2020

Dumpster Archeology Magazine presents:

The End of Dumpster Diving

We reached the end of civilization… the halfway mark of the summer of 2020….all we knew was breathing and surviving. The retail shops were closed, the dumpsters remained empty and the protesters stalked the night streets.

Was this the end of Dumpster Diving as well?

Chapter 1:

a Dirt-Bag Renaissance Man

A short thread of weirdness from some discovered Muscle man Trophies, a Portland based Comedian and one Dirt-bag Renaissance Man.

Covid ended the College Exodus, as there was no college. I avoided the city, with its alleyways remaining unexplored as the essential workers work and everyone else quarantined. Could this really be the End?

Months came and months went by and life was survival and worry….then one day, they spoke to me again. Those Dumpsters with the stories, those lost souls who called out with a desire to be remembered. One after the other, in the month of July the cases developed.

Chapter 2:

Randy Titus Slides

Freshly digitalized slides from one of Dumpster Archeology’s 2nd most well known artist….Randy Titus

There was Revolution in the air, there was madness on the streets and all I wanted to remember……to find that which we lost, so I was pulled into the hard metal edges of our collective memory.

Dumpster Archeology had changed, the essence is purified in the fires of rebellion.

No one is safe, the trash speaks the Truth.

Chapter 3:

Hard Drives and Shameless Minds

a descent into a story that can not be told, and corruption on deep levels of our capitalistic system.

Had the American dream been an illusion? As what it took, to get to the top….always seemed to have a dark side.

Perhaps we collectively woke up from a bad dream, the day Covid-19 showed us that the edges of our civilization stood on the bones of the common American lies.

Chapter 4:

the North Omaha Maps

North Omaha and one engineering firm who is famous for environmental consulting, meet in a strange story of Dumpster Dived Maps and Greening efforts.

This is the End of Dumpster Diving…..and the beginning of something new.. We pursue the edges of our human animal-ness and lost mental understanding.

Welcome to the Apocalypse!

Chapter 5:

The Big Red One ……. or the way of the Tour Guide

a strange short fiction story surrounding the True Life Art work of a Russian Artist.

As Dumpster Archeology took on new cases, discovered strange territory, I also reached deeper into the past. The project was lent a high powered Negative Scanner to uncover something lost.

The Jensen slides revealed 1986 Communist China, and the story of the Missionary Brothers returning to the land of their birth, grew into a story that is quite fascinating and beautiful.

Chapter 6:

The Jensen Slides of Communist China

Two Brother in Communist China, in 1986, exploring the place of their birth, discovered in a Dumpster.
