After our daughter checked in at the Mid-South Quick Chess Championship on Hillsboro at St. Paul Christian Academy we went to wait in the gymnasium for the first pairings to get posted.

Hanging from the ceiling in the center of the room is a delightful use of discarded plastic bottles. The sculpture is approximately 5 feet high and is comprised of hundreds of colored and altered plastic water bottles. It’s kinetic to a degree which helps it catch and reflect the light. I don’t know who made this piece but it is likely a collaborative effort by children from this school.

TLC’s ‘Hoarding: Buried Alive! & Junk King of Nashville

We are excited to announce that the episode of TLC’s ‘Hoarding: Buried Alive!‘ that Junk King of Nashville worked on last Spring is finally going to air on Wednesday, March 26th at 8PM Central.  Client and crew were wonderful. Tomorrow’s blog will talk more about the day. Watch tonight and come back tomorrow for some backstory. I don’t want to ruin any surprises (or make TLC mad). If you think of it, please go to our Facebook page HERE and share our post about the show. We had little warning it would air and were unable to put out a press release. Thanks!

Wednesday, March 5 at 9:00PM Central Time will have another NEW episode of TLC’s ‘Hoarding: Buried Alive!. It was filmed with New York’s Jean Leon of Junk King of Hudson Valley helping with the clean out. Junk King of Nashville participated on an episode which will air in late May 2014. I’ll keep you posted. Tonight’s episode is titled: We’re Gonna Need A Bigger Boat.

Hoarding: Buried Alive! & Junk King

Tonight (Wednesday, November 27 9:00PM Central Time) is the first of two episodes of TLC’s ‘Hoarding: Buried Alive! filmed with Ed Stripay and Ryan Kozesky of Junk King of Pittsburgh. This episode they are joined by Eric and Marta Hughes of Junk King of Columbus. Ed was the first contact with TLC and this episode filmed with the Hughes and their crews helped solidify a relationship for Junk King with the producers of the show. They did such a professional job that when a new episode is being filmed the producers check to see if there is a Junk King franchise nearby to take care of the hauling aspect of the process. Junk King of Nashville participated on an episode which will air in early 2014. I’ll keep you posted. Tonight’s episode, #704, is titled: My Teeth Are Lost in the Pile.
