  1. Trash

    Trash is a 1970 American film directed and written by Paul Morrissey. The movie stars Joe Dallesandro, transsexual Holly Woodlawn and Jane Forth. Dallesandro had previously starred in several other Andy Warhol/Paul Morrissey films such as The Loves of Ondine, Lonesome Cowboys, San Diego Surf, and Flesh. Dallesandro was Morrissey's preferred leading man. Holly makes her screen debut in this film; director George Cukor famously instigated a write-in campaign to have her nominated for an Academy Award which didn't materialize. Jane Forth, a 17-year-old model, also makes her debut in this film. She would shortly afterwards appear on the cover of Look magazine. The film also features other Warhol superstars such as Andrea Feldman and Geri Miller. Sissy Spacek also made a quick uncredited appearance as 'a girl who sits at the bar' but was cut from the final film. The film features graphic scenes of intravenous drug use, sex, and frontal nudity.

Examples of trash in a Sentence

  1. Joshua Nash:

    Black Lives Matter is trash because they do not really care about black lives. They simply care about making money and disrupting events for dead people.

  2. William Shakespeare:

    Good name in man and woman, dear my lord, Is the immediate jewel of their souls Who steals my purse steals trash 'tis something, nothing 'Twas mine, 'tis his, and has been slave to thousands But he that filches from me my good name Robs me of that which not enriches him And makes me poor indeed.

  3. John Green:

    And as paralyzing and upsetting as all the never agains were, the final leaving felt perfect. Pure. The most distilled possible form of liberation. Everything that mattered except one lousy picture was in the trash, but it felt so great. I started jogging, wanting to put even more distance between myself and school. It is so hard to leave---until you leave. And then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world.

  4. Jason Gates:

    Once we saw the bags of trash go inside the cardboard containers, we sent a notification to the people on site via text message, letting them know that they should remove it before the truck comes the next morning and telling them that putting trash in the recycling container is a form of contamination, which they should not do in the future.

  5. Julie Onstot:

    If you have big goals, that's great. But organizing can get overwhelming if you're not prepared. So, start small. I often suggest your dresser or nightstand. What's there that can go away? Probably trash, dishes or books you've finished, try to clear off at least one or two things. Once those smaller spaces feel cleaner, you can move onto bigger spaces that need some love. And you'll feel better about tackling even the smallest space because it's a check off the to-do list.
