"Thom, the Karnival of Trash has proven to be a homecoming of sorts. You are a "Legend of Trashpo" amongst the Kulters, dumpster divers & D-Kanines. I can assure you of this fact. And you did do a lot in the early days. So it is fitting…"

"How nice to have this posted! ...though I think you probably overestimate my "legendary" qualities. I think I must certainly be more of an haphazard DKult-ist, 'though I'm pleased as punch to be associated with other celebrity…"

Hey De Villo!

Yeah, I cut my teeth on that literature thirty years ago. I submitted to BFS, and got a snarky response from Dennis McBee. I didn't know if he was pulling my leg, or that brutally "honest". I was a nineteen year old greenhorn who wanted to dive into the community head first.

A couple years later, 1987, I began submitting drawings and collages to Factsheet Five. They never published anything from me, but I received free issues. The only two publications to showcase my work were out of Huntsville, Alabama: Chris Fitts' & Chris Chapman's Fred's Wonderful Newsletter and David Chamberlain's Auricle.

My "claim to fame" are the hundreds, maybe close to a couple thousand collage/mixed media postcards I sent to friends, bands, record labels, 'zines, random strangers, and cute girls I liked.

Such is life, no?
