Guest Shoegaze: A Misplaced Shoebox Greeting

Found: Last weekend The Shoegazer’s intrepid radio show sidekick, DJ Fabulous (she requested a fabulous pseudonym, so there goes) was strolling about the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY when she came across an envelope leaning against the side of a building.  Familiar with this blog and the bounties that can be had by looking downward, she picked up the envelope to reveal a misplaced birthday card and a personal check for $350.00.  It sounds like a lot of money for “Pop” to be sending to “Dylan”, but bear in mind that “Dylan” probably lives in a shoebox with the monthly rent of $2600 out in Bushwick somewhere, and 350 bones is probably chump change.  The card itself features a dog wearing what appears to be a bandana around his neck and some sort of Amish-looking hat atop his head.

Location: Leaning against the side of the Southpaw music club in Park Slope, Brooklyn.  It looked like it had been found before and left in a semi-conspicuous position awaiting Dylan’s return.

Source: Even though I was not there, I can say with a fair amount of certainty that either Dylan or Pop is responsible for this find.

Destination: The card and check, useless to anyone not named Dylan, were left where they were found, leaning against the side of the Southpaw club – but only after some amusing pictures were taken and a good larf had been had by all.  Whether Dylan returned to retrieve both items, or maybe just the check, is unknown.
