"If trashpo has taught me anything its that every windblown street corner and cyclone fence is a veritable Dick Blick of free art materials."

I bet they are! I heard they were made to sign a confidentiality clause that, if violated, would result in very large fines. This is so exciting! I heard there will be some REAL surprises...the first of which being if it actually opens!!!

The Cascadia Walmarth store's Grand Opening will be a power-up you won't want to miss. Specially liveried dumpsters in Walmarth colors arrived yesterday and are being filled to the brim with the latest in found objects, and the black bags for the "Godzilla Special" marked with the exclusive DKult label have been stacked in the rear parking lot. This morning, workers have been stringing banners across the front and back of the building block, and a barricade has been erected in the parking space in front of the store. One can sense that the Grand Opening is drawing closer, but Walmarth store staff remain unusually tight-lipped and did not allow photos to be taken at this time.
