Hello! New around here and I received a comment on a blog post I did referring to the mail art "TrashPo" and recycled treasures-all from renowned prolific and definitely 'treasurable' artist Richard Canard of Carbondale...all of which I sincerely DO treasure (and thanx for the comment!)...almost as much as I treasure being a total word geek! So I ask the IUOMA ether: what is it? I would much appreciate a bit of guidance here! Thanks, Hilary.
Trashpo is trash as poetry? Diane Keys aka DKULT was a proponent with numerous others here at iuoma.

Now what is Add & Past ? I loved your response to my question what is TrashPo a while back, it was fun to read and it helped me out too...I must admit I am too new here to understand all the references and terms you used in it-but I love that kind of thing and I'll get there I gobble stuff like that up for breakfast! Thank you for the links. I make mail art about mail art. Power point poster flyer format and postcards too. Are you interested in an exchange? I could pick your brain all day just asking about things like "the Order of the Tangerine Mink" and FAKE DK and I know Ray but the Great Landfill? No clue...Anyway no rush. Thanks for responding and enlightening me. This too proves to be a wide world...Hilary K.
The Trashpoets have taken a vow of silence since the appearance of the FAKE DK (which was foretold). It is possible to gain status as a Fake Trashpoet by completing training with an Official Legend of Trashpo or someone who has been named to the Order of the Tangerine Mink - but good luck finding them.
But I must warn that the trail is long & treacherous to walk with Ray in the Great Landfill. Trash poetics & DKult are exceedingly difficult.
