"If trashpo has taught me anything its that every windblown street corner and cyclone fence is a veritable Dick Blick of free art materials."

Martha--you could give samples of Dkul Tea to shoppers to make them spend more!

Borderline did an amazing job but this is where our need for a DKult printing press becomes glaring. there r a limited number of copies so you know Dark Wall will grab onto the opportunity to sell them.  a caterpillar Martha? such an amazing sign of transformation! i was trashpicking at a dumpster behind a store when the entire store crew walked up and asked what we were doing i just looked at them and said, "I'm just picking up trash."  they gave me the weirdest stare. I'm tired of explaining it so that's all I said.

Thank you for the compliment, MAM.  Of course you have my permission.  The jingle is wonderful.

Nancy and Diane, so true what you say about trash and beauty. i rescued a piece of washed down paper from under the hook of a council refuse collector who was mystified. I thought it was too difficult to explain to the non initiated so I gave him a Buddha like smile and walked away as dignifiedly as possible. Under it I found a green caterpillar which looked lovely against the orangy background but over night in my garden the catepillar left, silly me  I did not take a photo.

I received a zine from BG. I don't know how to describe it to you but my husband came running,as fast as his English sense of propriety allowed, to see if I was alright, so much I laughed and I am not of the laugh-aloud-very-often kind. There are articles on the Elgin Shroud and the Golden Orb that are so full of mysticality that they have restore my faith in D(a )Kult. It  helps that I always drink DKult Tea I suppose.

Now for an important business matter, BG. As General Manager of Walmarth I have been instructed by the Board of Directors to  request your permission to sell DKult Tea and to print a poster of DKult Tea to display in the stores world wide. We already have a possible jingle,

Be like me

Drink DKult Tea

Don't be an ass

it's in the glass

Thank you Borderline Grafix, for inspiring so much fun.

Oh DK--you just revamped my entire worldview, putting words to the trashpo material = instinct. There will be less irritability about the constant daily ad crappola. Thank you ---
