10/30 Found Magazine at Pegasus

Posted by novoscene on October 30, 2007

Before there were websites like Post Secret and I Can Has Cheezburger and all the other sites where people submit strange funny anonymous tidbits for our viewing amusement, there was Found magazine.

Found came to be in 2001, when co-founder Davy Rothbart discovered a scathing, personal and slightly desperate note (left) taped to his car. After consulting with friends and realizing that everyone had a few of these little whatthefuck pieces of curiosity stuck around there homes, Davy and his brother Peter founded the magazine as a way for scavengers round the globe to join forces and showcase their jewels. Over the years Found has evolved into a kind of cultural landmark, a testament to the quirky things we do as humans and the strange shit we tend to write on napkins in bars at 2am. Tonight the brothers discuss their latest “Found #5: The Crime Issue.”-kwan
