Trash Cinema? Ehh, kind of…

Folks with attics and who are planning summer clear-out garage sales, lookin’ for some help. I need some junk from the late ‘70s/early ‘80s to set dress a flashback scene in a short film. Nothing of value, just…junk. Got an old, drool-stiffened Yurtle the Turtle in a toy chest in the attic the CDC wouldn’t allow a kid near now? I’ll take him. Old Matchbox car with a bent wheel? A Micronaut? G.I. Joe doll with/without all his limbs? A Coleco Electronic Quarterback game that doesn’t work because the 9 volt you left in in 1982 corroded to the point of leaving nothing behind but plastic? Score! Send it my way.

For your space-freeing efforts, you’ll get a film credit, a Thank You and shout on the web sites, and if your piece of decades-old esoterica is featured prominently? A free copy of the short.

Also, if you’re reasonably local in SW Florida, still looking for a TV set with knobs. B/W, color, doesn’t matter. 9 inch to 13 inch preferred if you’re junking it, but could probably take a 19 inch if you can’t donate it. Don’t worry if it doesn’t have the antennae or is beat up, get in touch and I’ll letcha know if we can work something out ASAP. Thanks in advance, your help is greatly appreciated.

Score! A bottle of Pameco Castor Oil that expired in 1982. Found in a family member's medicine cabinet.
