"Here's a 'card' from Kosmo Vinyl which is, to me, asemic even though I've translated it into english and know what it says/means. When I look at it, I see no meaning other than perhaps the language."

Fike, well he certainly had his "punk Rock" like moments, but he was an actor named Tony Curtis. I have on my kitchen table, my reply to your December mailing to me - hope to get it to the Post Office today. Best KV

NOLA has really blossomed since Katrina. You should get down there sometime. It's so laid back. I live in the Midwest and it's so sterile here! I miss the sensuality of New Orleans so much. I'm actually flying out on Wednesday to catch a little of the pre-Mardi Gras festivity.

Fike your envelope arrived today - I will reply eventually, but have a few other pieces tog et to first. Thanks a lot ,man, I really appreciate it.

Thanks Ficus. This is new to me and am just starting off. You have certainly submitted a great deal of art. Lovely work too.

Happy Birthday Ficus! And thank you for the mail art you sent a couple of weeks ago.

When Fike's not mail arting or reading scifi or shattering the silence whilst making paper targets holey he wonders about strange and mostly useless things.

Sugar free popsicles from Wal Mart come in boxes of 20 with flavors Orange [O], Grape [P] and Cherry [R]. Each is contained in a plastic wrap which has a flap seal down the side and then two of these individual packages are bonded together with flaps on the same side making 10, 2-paks per vended package. If one holds a two-pack so that the stick handles are up and the sealed sides are facing him and observes which of the three flavors are in each individual pak, there would be 9 possible combinations [3x3 allowing each position to be filled by any of the three colors] HOWEVER, 3 of these possibilities are not present because none of the 2-paks [at least observed so far] have two of the same color. So it's 3x2 choices, 6 total. These are:

OP, OR, PO, PR,RO, RP.

I wondered if there was a statistically significant nonrandom distribution of all the 6 possible combinations. Non-randomness might be determined in colors of first position, 2nd position & 2-pak combinations.

So, here is a record of observed [and eaten] combinations:

Pkg 001:

Wow. It looks like a watercolor that has been stained and damage, but the damage is very beautiful.

If you like to use old US postage on your mail art envelopes...

Posted on October 4, 2014 at 5:01pm 0 Comments

Karl Anderson's a good source who I've used for several orders over the past few years.

His current list and very detailed information on requirements for ordering from him are found at:

http://www.andersonstampandcoin.com/Pricelist.pdf

Currently, he is selling mint US 3-cent stamps from the 1940's-50's for very little over face value.

Y'r Ol' Bud,     Fike

So you like fractals, eh?
