FOUND by Steve at Valdosta State University, Valdosta, Georgia
This artistic gem was discovered abandoned in a classroom. It appears to be preliminary drawing of a cover for an album titled, “Money Made Bitch.” The artwork is superb; it either features A) a man flying through the are while his legs disintegrate into dollar bills; or, B) a man lying down shooting dollar bills out his ass. A bystander stands behind this dollar bill man and cheers him on with a hearty, “Yeaaa!!”
Despite the effort put into the album’s cover, the music itself appears more preliminary. Thus far, only one track is certain, and will bat lead-off on Money Made Bitch. I’m sure this song, titled “Flexcard Flexxin’” is bound to be a delightful ditty. [Note: "flex cards" are used by students to purchase meals on campus]
I’d say about half of the photos that I found in an old photo album involve this family in some way, and then the other half are a mystery to me. This Polaroid was probably taken by the younger sister since she’s not pictured here. I’m not sure if she meant to capture her parents kissing, but I’m glad she did.
This letter was laying on the ground as I exited my car. Rarely do I exert the energy to pick up a piece of paper but this was folded in a way where I could see it was a note of sorts. It is dated November 21, 2002, and I am confident it had not been there long due to it’s condition. Less than a year after September 11, 2001 my mind raced with thoughts of what this guy was up to and why this letter was in a Wal-Mart parking lot of my small boring town. I’ve held onto it for all this time.
The humor behind this find is the fact that it was located between the pages of a steamy book assigned for my love and eroticism class. This course apparently inspired this adventurous couple to do a little more then learn.
My husband found this while we were walking our dog. It appears to be a homework assignment about pi. I’ve been trying for weeks to figure out a good tune or beat to sing along with it but haven’t had much luck.
I found these inside an old photo album. There weren’t many Polaroids, but the ones I do have are surprisingly vivid and surreal. “Meemaw” (don’t know her real name) appears in a few different photos, but I’m not sure about the kid.
I was walking my dog on a windy day and saw a piece of paper that was trying to blow out of a bush but trapped by the leafless branches. My curiosity got the better of me and I picked it up. Best decision ever.
Keeping this note around helps me reaffirm my faith in humanity. The image of this kid and the lizard eating and playing together is just too much.
ven in the larger version of the photo, it still looks an awful lot like a flat screen monitor in the background. Can anybody identify the type of computer it actually is? The back of this photo was completely blank, but similar photos (of a dorm room) were dated November, 1983, if that helps.
FOUND by Rebecca at the Karl Mundt Library, Madison South Dakota
So the library at Dakota State University was giving away their old books, and one in the fiction section I happened upon was “The Walking Stick”. Stuck inside was this picture. The stamp on the bottom says “C.W. Panzer, Lake Mills, WI.” on the back was written “Now let us now [sic] right away if you receive this.” I’ve kept it around because the man’s eyes are striking in a rather eerie way. I wonder who these people are.
