Disc Jockey

Found in a briefcase in an abandoned Chevrolet Dealership on the West Side of Cleveland. I’m guessing its from the early 70′s. I have no idea who this guy is but this is a definite finders-keepers situation.

You Suck at Life Now

I was walking home from the park with my kids and thought that I’d take them by the juvie; like, “Hey kids, don’t act up and end up in there some day.” We found this on the sidewalk. I saw the swear word up top and then wouldn’t let my kids have it. They spent … Continued
