Garbage for sale.

This guy is selling NYC garbage. He selects the garbage from the street and packages it in clear plastic cubes. I suppose the effect approaches art, but I'm not so sure.

I think it's a brilliant business idea, and his website is great. But anybody willing to pay good money for this garbage has some shit in serious need of tightening. ...I'll grant that the justaposition of garbage objects might qualify as pastiche--so maybe there's some value added--but all the same it's value added to trash and a plastic box.

You forgot to say Tighten Up.

I said it in a different way, no?
