"Aladdin Sane (David Bowie) - that's clever. Kerri's couch is great. Glad to see Meeah is still around. Someone was spreading a rumor she had "kicked the bucket." I kid you not."

As bad as things are, I have received some outstanding mail art including these stamp sets from Keith Chambers' Dada Centennial Collection. Not available in any store they are a lovely achievement in homage to both stamps and dada if a person can pay homage to dada. That does sound like it should be illegal. A coupla…See More

Elsa von Freytag-loringhoven, long dead, sent me this instructional manual on how not to draw a cat as well as an invitation to friend this jolly Brooklyn realtor (done and done). Elsa's quotes are reprinted here for the benefit of those who, like me, have trouble seeing: "Why isn't Santa Fe in…

Dave, I am wiggly all over looking at the giant assortment of incredible vintage STUFF you sent me! How generous of you! And the big Burt Lahr collage, and perhaps best of all, my very own Color Wheel! Thank you thank you thank you! I can't promise to deal with this stuff responsibly, but if I get arrested I'll try to keep your name out of it.
