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

Yes, yes, I love trashpo!  I will be a late joining in though.  Please!  Do not send me any trashpo, until I get caught up with my mail.  Of course if some of you are on my IOU list, you may receive some trashpo.


Theresa....great idea!  Trashpo stamp.  Love it.

Okay, I am at this moment having that Keats quote/poem tattooed on my arm!

Glad to see so many with a passion for trashin

Erni, it was those sculptures of people made out of junk-hundreds of them in the town square that you said was installed in many different locals.

I love that bulletin board you're lucky they allow so much artistic expression in the streets. Here they barely let you put up fliers. They either take stuff down or paint over it. Very bland. In the city is is prohibited to even put up fliers.

You adventurer you, Thom ~ welcome to trashpo world ~ you will have a great time. I couldn't have been more surprised when you showed up but, due to the adventurer in you, that was ignorant of me. Glad you're here!

Now, Bifidus!!... There is some re-written poetic license that makes some sense!!!  LOL!  BRAVO, friend!! The world has never discovered the riddle of romantic love, so well as this group embraces Trashpo!!! My life for my Trashpo!

I have been astonished that men could die martyrs for their religion -
I have shudder'd at it.
I shudder no more.
I could be martyr'd for my religion
Trash is my religion
And I could die for that.
I could die for trash.
--John Keats

So glad to join this group! I bought a gum eraser yesterday so I could carve me a TRASHPO stamp.  :-)

I am definitely a Trashpo neophyte, but I have loved some of the philosophy and the creations I've encountered on this site and in my mailbox. I hereby take the pledge to encourage and practice the magical transformation of garbage-o into postal art-oh! Thanks for the creation of this group, Diane! How did it take THIS LONG???
