Four things recently found on the ground:


Bottle of Upper 10, circa 1960(?)
Found: in a cache of other vintage bottles, exposed by low water on the banks of a small bayou outside of Baton Rouge.
Currently: on my windowsill, holding a sprig of stolen rosemary from the neighbors.


Decapitated angel.
Found: backyard, buried in the sand. Smelling strangely of vanilla.
Currently: impaled on a stake in the garden, as a warning to other rogue cherubs.



Pristine pair of Foster Grants.
Found: Target parking lot.
Currently: on my face.



"Crazy Penis" Cd, title scrawled in what seems to be lipstick.
Found: corner of Coliseum and 6th street.
Disappointingly, neither porn nor psychotic-woman-scorned created revenge. Actual band. Electronic-ish music.
Currently: in my car.

I like the sunglasses.

I was about to google this band "Crazy Penis." Then I thought better of it.

I hope you thoroughly disinfected everything, Jason. Especially the Crazy Penis.

I actually have a few of their songs on electronica compilations from the late 1990's...not bad.

I’m curious about Upper 10? Is that a Louisiana label or was it national? Is the bottle upwards of 10 inches? Umm 10 inches...

jason said...

It's actually national.
I did a bit of research on it. Seems it tasted (tastes?) like Sprite.
I saw a bottle similar, but in better condition being offered for sale online for a fair amount of money.

And why yes, I think it *is* around 10 inches. You just don't know how tired I get of saying that.

Oh, and you're right....Crazy Penis is actually not bad.

(something else I tire of saying too often)
