COLUMBIA, SC—By carefully piecing together the physical evidence with the local oral traditions that have been passed down from older to younger brother over the past two weeks, paleontologists have been able to theorize the party was a truly balls-out rager.

I'm not simply interested in what you throwaway (or recycle or compost) everyday. Or how you make really cool things out of used products destined for the dump. I want to explore more than just physical objects.

And that is what I will do. Here. In garbourgeoisie.
