What the hell is DKult?

DKult was originated by DeVillo Sloan-- a Kult comprised of my 'fans' ---DKulters. He was the only one at the time and possibly even now.   But It has evolved into a friendly neighborhood Kult devoted to the worship of trash and  the creation of…Continue

I hope DKULTUK as well as our amazing French Trash poets won't be offended; I just have to share this.

Priceless, Yves! Perhaps we could consider handbag trash as a subcategory of junk drawer trash...a more gendered and portable variety, that is.

Right now in addition to the trashdollars and tickets issued sparingly for the commissary, we are supplementing with rocks. the smoother rounder ones fetch the highest value.  We believe in returning to the ancient ways, but also embracing the future. Why? because we are creating a utopian future. I auditioned for the upcoming reality show on FOX called Utopia. why? because if I made it onto the show, I would spread the word and it would become a DKult with its' very own self governing government. Since Dkulters are used to going hungry, it would give us a definate advantage surviving in the wildness. We can manufacture the trashuts at the complex, and then bring them in. The Dkult animals are actually held in higher regard than anyone. Their amazing senses of smell help us find trash more efficiently and it spares us from rolling in dumpster of rotten food looking for artworthy bits

Comment by De Villo Sloan yesterday

This is priceless. We now have D-Kanines and U-Kanines. There are D-Kats as well. Yes, Snooky is one of the few recognized trash dogs to date.

Martha raises another issue. She has floated her own currency. This is in addition to the already established Trash Dollars aka Trash Dolls:

D-Konomy - Trash Dollars, D-Dollars, Trash Dolls 

Borderline Grafix has also issued his own version of trash currency. Ultimately, I imagine there will be some sort of global trash currency.

As for Rebecca Guyver, she has developed a fixation with frogs. More on this forthcoming.

Comment by Mail Art Martha yesterday

I have to clarify that Sacha the sniffer dog in the picture is not mine, I was allowed to be his handler for the day as a special favour.It needed written permission from the Chief of Police, the President of the Association of Dog Handlers, the Bishop of Cloudcukooland, the Commissioner of Outer Retailia and the Union of Street Cleaners of Snailmail-on-Sea. All of whom need to attend meetings and conferences and symposiums, which takes ages. This is so you understand that it is not usually possible for me to use dogs in my Trashpo gathering. It is all done by hand.

Comment by Mail Art Martha yesterday

I am chuffed you all liked the eBookie, but i cannot claim the glory or the responsability. It was written by Amapola Gallo, ghost writer to the Queen. I admit that when she was recommended to me I was doubtful because of her name but she turned out fine. It shows one must not be prejudiced.

The font for Princess DKult is sort of sorting itself in my brain while I finish all the stuff currently bothering me. I am so happy to have something to do which is not simply self indulgence although I shall enjoy it very much. I have to dig up an old computer still with Windows XP because the free program I use for font making has not been upgraded for the other OS. I hope it all still works.


Comment by Diane Keys yesterday

I'm seeing a pattern here--doesn't Rebecca G's dog sniff out trash for her? this must be UKanine's special gift. I think the D-Kanine program would have fared much better if Snooky hadn't gotten drunk with power and insisted on heated dog chalets,  imported exotic meat, and a 24 hour grooming salon. It turned the pooches into typical lazy Americans who refused to do anything but gorge themselves all day. I would hope UKanine's would make a better example.

Comment by De Villo Sloan yesterday

Martha, I think your Queendom book is wonderful! The Trashpo & DKult entries are my favorites, of course.

I notice your mention of the trash-sniffing dogs. Based on this & some related things I've seen lately, I believe the D-Kanine program should be revisited. The idea of admitting dogs to DKult was abandoned but maybe it was too soon & the moment might now be upon us.

I have shared a video of dogs that have been trained to drive vans with KDJ. I am hoping she might lend her talents to the revival of the D-Kanine program.

Regardless, the Queendom book is masterpiece, IMHO.

Comment by Diane Keys yesterday

Wow!!! that is amazing Martha!   that DKult is included is really fantastic. The more documentation we have the better in case it all just vanishes unexpectedly one day.  Love the cauliflower necklace and all the other witticisms in the boek. i hope your tourism office has many of these to hand out. yet another great reason to visit the UK!!!!

and the font would be amazing. I have already had her collaborate by writing her alphabet for you. I will snail mail it. She goes to a private school for LD so how cool would it be to be able to use her own font as school! why not celebrate their differences. They are the innovators and out of the box thinkers!!
