Wanted: Coffee cans

Postby Ivy » Tue Oct 05, 2004 11:26 am

Hi all,

I am collecting coffee cans for part of a project I am doing for Burning Man 2005. I am specifically looking for 1- and 3-lbs metal coffee cans *with lids.*

I will be present and able to collect cans at SF, LA and OC/SD decompression (tm) events. I would be quite grateful if you had any to bring. There will also be other times throughout the eyar I will able to pick tem up in various locations, or if you would like to ship them I wouldn't say no.

If you have questions, please feel free to email or message me. I will try to have something nice for everyone who contributes cans.

Thanks,
Ivy

Aren't you guys just a little curious as to what Ivy is going to do with all those coffee cans? Here's my Top 3 List o' Possibilities...

#3. Telescope

#2. Artillery

and the number one guess is....

#1. Something that bugs the shit out of the coffee crowd in center camp.

Its the "with lids" thing that's got me wondering.

Why don't you bring me some coffee cans and find out? I am of the mind that can contributers will receive some sort fo "front of the line" pass to experience all the goodness these cans will have to offer.

Okaaaay. But what if it is artillery? Hmmm?

Unfortunately, I seem to be the only non-coffee-drinker in Seattle. That won't stop me however; I'm lookin' 'round.

It's not artillery. Nor anything that could concieveably fall under the category of weapons, bombs, or anything violent in nature.

It's good.

Hey, I have this really bad tendancy of trusting everyone at least once, even when my gut tells me I shouldn't ... because my gut is basically not very trusting and I takes willpower to override it.

So, what does that say? It says ... I am looking for coffee cans. A guy at work is bringing me a couple. My coffee comes in bags.

Ha. "Round here being a coffee drinker wont help, because if you're a proper Bay Area Coffee Drinker, you buy your beans in a bag, grind them yourself and keep them in the freezer!

I Imagine that that crowd puts in an apperrence up north too.

They don't need to necessarily have housed coffee products. #10 cans and the like are also acceptible--as long as they have those plastic lids. The lids are vital to the project. Most tin cans have tin lids, not the snap-on plastic ones. The most common form of this I see is for coffee, hence, "coffee cans" and not just "tin cans."
